Re: Beer Cruising

Why is beer so bad in Texas? I can't figure it. Even Cajuns in LA. Manage to make decent lager. Its disturbing to find Bud Lite as an appealing alternative. Some of you Gulf Coaster's must know.

Re: Beer Cruising

Philadelphia has quite a few micro breweries and their beer is exceptional. I personally like Triumph Brewery on Chestnut St. near Penn's Landing. It is easily within staggering distance to the transit docks near the Hyatt.

Draws were $4 and 5$ and they were more than generous with their samples.

Re: Beer Cruising

Just back from the PNW. Good beers and ales. Just not as good, or as many as San Diego County. But their oysters can't be beat. What a wonderful combination.

Re: Beer Cruising

I'm up to knowing where there are 5 micro breweries pubs within an afternoon sail from my mooring (it has to be within walking distance and not require a slip stay to count)

Re: Beer Cruising

Looking forward to having access to real beer again soon. The San Blas are awesome, but not for beer. Heading to Colombia soon and understand they have a growing craft brew industry....esp in Bogata...yumm. Will do extensive research to confirm and post here.

Re: Beer Cruising

And they use that goofy BSP thread system & drive on the wrong side.

I do like the beer - any temperature you hand it to me.

Huh? Where you been drinking beer in Texas?

Man there are some awesome craft brews avaiable in Texas, huge selections at places like the Flying Saucer in Austin, and retail shops like Specs.

Was back in Texas a few years ago and was like a kid in a candy store (don't live in the USA, missed the craft brew explosion there) Must have tried 100 diff beers.

Re: Beer Cruising

Just returned from Maui... I give them A for effort, but back home, Ninkasi and Boneyard hit the taste buds just right.

Re: Beer Cruising

captain58 - it's along way there from Maine. Although I have been to AK - have a sis-in-law in Fairbanks. Yeah, I feel sorry for her, too. Want a rooster? I bet she'd be happy to part with Nelson.

Re: Beer Cruising

Tie up to a waterfront dock in Portland, ME and any number of good brewers are within walking distance. Gritty's, Shipyard, Rising Tide, Geary's .... Heck, now that I think of it I may need to make a brew run along the coast. Probably take all summer. And if you make it to November http://mainebrewersfestival dot com

Re: Beer Cruising

The national beer of Belize is Belikin. It is only sold in bottles that they refill so there is a deposit. No paper 6pack holders, you buy individual bottles and figure out on your own how to carry them back to the boat. A plastic shopping bag with 12 bottles of beer in it is dangerous. Stocking up for a little cruise is a pain unless you buy them by the case, a plastic milk crate like thing. What happens though, you end up with this investment in Belize beer bottles and crates. Happily when you turn in your bottles in the south of Belize, you only have 16 miles to the next country which has it's own beers.

Re: Beer Cruising

With a little practice, you can place a case of Belikin on the handle bars of a bicycle and use the case itself to steer. Common to see in Belize. The early learning stages can be ugly though. ;-)

Re: Beer Cruising

While a rooster sounds nice, I think my dog might like him better than I would, I don't have any hens. I have a year old blue heeler and his only experience with livestock has been a mother moose giving birth to twins near our house and that was not a good thing, he has gotten quite possessive of our place. We managed to keep him from molesting the moose, but it was a fight. I get to visit Squarebanks about once every 5 years and that is often enough for me.
