Sorry Fuzz, but in my opinion, it is the most overrated beer out there.

hater.

I haven't seen it locally for a long time. Picked up a couple bottles last night. I guess I don't follow what's rated highly or not but I think it's o.k. Not the best but o.k.

It is not a bad beer, and when we had the pub it was our best selling micro, I just never thought it deserved the hype it has gotten as it really is not that great IMHO.  It must have something going for it though since it does sell well.

I've never cared for it either, but then I live in one of the mecca's of microbrews...

Good beer, but ya...... overrated.

I still really like Pete's Wicked, but its harder to find around here than it used to be ever since my local supermarket stopped carrying it.  Hmmmm, perhaps I'll make the trip tonight to get some though  Wink

I've gone to find myself.  If I get back before I return, keep me here.

I'm a fan, but there are better out there. Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, Moose Drool, Alaskan Amber, and Stone IPA are among them. I'm also a big fan of Anchor Steam, but a very different style of beer.

Coincidentally, after I finished my Fat Tire I had two Sierra Nevada's.  Cool

I also give a thumb's up to the Moose Drool, although I haven't had one in a while.

This is just hitting big here.  I saw one dude asking for it a few weeks ago.  They just got it in now.  I haven't tried one yet.

We'll see.

 Grin  I know.  I'm thinking of branching out.  You know, get cultureized.     and stuff.

I'll start with overpriced nasty status beer, and move to like lemon juice finger bowls at dinner.

Small steps.

I'll have you know PBR won some sort of award 120 years ago, hence the "Blue Ribbon." Besides, you get a 12 pack for like $1.95 or something. When I'm smuggling cheap beer that tastes equally bad ice cold or lukewarm onto the golf course, it's got to be PBR.

It's actually the last quasi regional company making pisswater American Lager that hasn't been swallowed up by Coors/AB/Miller, which is worth supporting by itself.

There used to (PacNW here): Oly, Rainier, (now made in Los Anhelies of all places) Lucky, Hamms, Blitz, the list used to go on.
