What are you guys drinking to celebrate the end of ot season? Maybe even Voltron is Handsome will upvote it!

I currently have a few bottles of Little Sumpin' Extra I was able to find today! I have heard it's awesome, so I'm excited to give it a shot.


Edited - I am turning this into a posbang too. UPVOTES FOR EVERYONE!

Just so everyone is aware, "Friday Night Drinking Thead" and "Saturday Night Drinking" thread type things are usually full of sidebar game discussion and would likely survive the cut in Non-OT Season, so they won't disappear totally. We'll just be on the lookout for, say, the "Wednesday Night Drinking" thread, although if you care to talk about what you are drinking in the MACtion threads in the middle of the week, that's fine. Actually, drinking during MACtion helps things make a little more sense sometimes.

I am sipping on a delicious glass of Goose Island Bourbon County Brand Barleywine. It's my first time having it, and it lives up to the hype. Probably going to have a Weihenstephaner Hefe Weissbier with dinner, and then have the other glass of the BSBB afterwords as a nightcap.

Goose Island makes the best barrel aged beers in the world.

Half Acre is a rising star, who their head brewers are all trained by the best breweries out west.

Revolution is amazing

Pipeworks was named the best brewery in the country this past year

Piece is always a staple at the world beer cup

Lagunitas just opened up a brewing facility that's over 100,000 square feet

Three Floyds makes some of the best beers in the world, and the hottest ipa in the world right now, Zombie dust.

I haven't even discussed ale syndicate, 5 rabbits, lake effect, off color, or finch.

Chicago also has Hopleaf, Map Room and Bangers and Lace which are consistently on the best beer bars list. Plus other places like Kumas Corner which has amazing burgers and an even better beer listing.

Chicago is one of the best beer cities in the country. I love my michigan beers, but outside of Shorts and Odd Side I would rather have Chicago. Next time you're there, go to Piece, Or Kumas. They will show you some kick ass beers.

Agree Chicago has a very good beer scene. Note that Zombie Dust is not an IPA, but an APA. A term like hottest is quite subjective, but a hotter, and arguably better APA, is PseudoSue by Toppling Goliath Brewing from Decorah, Iowa. You should definitely look into them. They're killing it across many styles.
