As far as Ohio beers go these 5(well 6, LOL!) are fantastic IMO.

Great Lakes Edmund Fitzgerald Porter - just an all around great porter!  Full flavored, nice body, easy drinking.  World class IMO!

Columbus IPA -  A top 5 IPA for me and my favorite Ohio IPA.  Its usually my go to if Im in the mood for an IPA.

Willoughby Nut Smasher - Although limited in distribution this is a phenomenal Imperial Stout that is a must have whenever available!  I have had the pleasure of volunteering at the Willoughby booth at a couple events recently and had my fill of this!

Thirsty Dog Wulver - BA Scotch Ale that clocks in at 12%!  A great sipper with a stogie!  I have 2 of these that have been stashed away for a few years!  Cant wait to open them and see how this ages!

Great Lakes Holy Moses and Great Lakes The Wright Pils -  Both were great summer seasonal beers that GLBC has unfortunately stopped bottling individually(although Moses can still be found in the Summer Sampler I believe) in favor of cashing in on the IPA trend(they now have 4 different IPAs or DIPAs available throughout the year).

Such a great show!

I too was very impressed by Eddie and his acting ability!  And dude is still yoked!

Wow!  Best of luck to you and thank you for your service!  You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

That really stinks for him as well as the team.  I was looking forward to seeing him get on the field and really contribute this season.  Hopefully he heals up completely and have a productive career in S&G!

No surprise on Brew Kettle.  White Rajah is a fantastic beer that people are finally starting to realize just how good it is!  Really want to get my hands on some Firestone Walker stuff sometime soon.

I'm glad all you pessimists and Negative Nancies decided to visit a thread you didn't deem worth of being a thread!  LOL!!  Thanks for the negativity! 

I/m sure I'll get some down-vote but so be it!  I am proud of getting to 500 HS and just thought some members would like to know I have been contributing consistently over an extended period of time since joining last summer.

No Surprise.  They will reload and Calipari will do what Calipari does with a bunch of new potential one-and-done players. 

Comment 09 Apr 2015

Sorry about your loss.  My thoughts, prayers, and a big Go Bucks going out to you and yours.

Hopefully he has a quick recovery and gets back in the mix!  I for one want as many play-making options as possible on this football team!!
