PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
Comin strong these days. If you haven't tried any of their beers you are doing yourself a disservice. Had the Irish Red Ale tonight. Very tasty.
Would love to try it. Just have to figure out where to get my hands on some. There are a couple of stores that sell wine and micro brews near me.

Never seen their stuff in Ohio before. Anyone else in the Buckeye State seen it?
if you're looking for an Irish Red, try Great Lakes's Conway's Irish Ale--it's even beeradvocate's recommendation or the style.
Live in AZ and haven't tried it. Will keep an eye out for it.
Ok, so moving back to Ohio from Cali, one thing I've noticed is a serious lack of micro-brew availability... whether local or shipped in? What is the deal?! In Cali it was weird to drink Busch, here I can get Great Lakes (decent option) or a seasonal version on Sam Adams. Am I missing something?
Bell's two hearted, or cream ale?. There is another blonde ale from a place I can't remember, but it has wax on top of one of the six pack bottles. I've seen more you just need to find the right place to buy them
I think it just depends on where you live and where you look. I haven't lived in Columbus in quite a few years so I don't quite know where the places are to get really good beer these days. Up in Northeast Ohio, though, it's to the point where just about any bar you walk into will be at least 50/50 microbrew to your normal, run of the mill beer companies.
This is my favorite place to get a beer (or 4) at. Their selection is impeccable and you won't find a single run of the mill type beer, unless you consider seasonal Sam Adams to be run of the mill.
This is also a tentative list of the beers that I'll be drinking in less than a month for a craft beer festival. It will be 3+ hours of heaven.
Plenty of micro brews where I am. Even at Kroger. Mt Carmel ale, rivertowne, bells, magic hat, great lakes, just to name a few
I think I'm just used to a wall of micro brews and a small case of Budweiser/Busch/etc vs a wall of Budlight/etc and a small handful of microbrews. I'd usually had at least 25 different brewers with 3-6 different options each in half the stores I walked into.
Well that's a lot.......and it sounds awesome
in the campus area there are at least 3 places i go to that have a significant microbrew/non-major beer selection. kroger on south campus, giant eagle up north of campus, and 14-0 convenient store on hudson between 4th and summit. all three of those have fantastic selection
Try Palmer's Beverage Center on Indianola in Columbus. Very polite and knowledgeable staff. If you can get it in Ohio, they'll either have it or know how to find it.

Distro is only 5 states,
I love a good Irish Red or slight variations of the style.
Great Lakes Conway, Oskar Blues G'Knight, and Three Floyds Brian Boru are all solid IMO.
People are saying that I'm an alcoholic, and that's not true, because I only drink when I work, and I'm a workaholic.
Great Lakes Brewing Company is pretty good local brew I've found.
Kentucky Burbon Barrel Ale, I tried this last week and was blown away. Never had anything like it before.
Don't drink too many of those, Steen. You'll find yourself on the floor before you know it! But you are correct in your assessment - it is rather delicious.
Yeah, one is plenty sufficient, I only drink one any ways when I drink anything. But dang that goes down smooth with an amazing aftertaste.
My favorite beer is Vodka...
Boulevard has a couple of new Smokestack Series brews. The Grainstorm is excellent, Black Rye IPA. They now have a Coffee Ale that I haven't tried. Sounds tempting, will try soon.
