It was quite the choice but I chose the one on the right. Hop Rod Rye was a very good brew!! One of my new favorites.

Am I the only one that thinks that Dry Dock's Three Heavy Wee Heavy is far and away the best thing ever tasted? Their Double IPA (formerly Seven Seas) is darn good too. Outside Colorado, I'm a big fan of Oomegang's Three Philosophers. For the backpack, Modus Hoperandi is my beer of choice.

Sometimes when I reflect on all the beer I drink, I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. I think, "It is better to drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver."

One night at Cheers, Cliff Calvin explained the" Buffalo Theory" to his buddy Norm:

"Well, ya see, Norm, it's like this. A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members! ; In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol, as we know, kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine! That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers."

Labatt Blue (best for all day drinking)
Dale's Pale Ale (best canned beer you can get, tastes great on the mountain top)
Odell's 5 Barrel (my go-to football on Sunday's beverage)
Bell's (anything from there is delicious)
Heineken (from Amsterdam ONLY, otherwise, not so much)

Anyone ever heard of Tallgrass Brewery? It's in Kansas. Having been forced to repetitively drive through this remarkably unremarkable place to get someplace else, I never would have guessed I would be recommending anything from there, but...

The Oasis Ale is really pretty good.

Just got back from Healdsburg, CA. Mostly wine tasting, but got 2 awesome breweries in as well:

Bear Republic in Healdsburg and Russian River in Santa Rosa. All I knew of Bear Republic was Racer 5. Their other selections on the "Hoppy" flight blew me away too.

Pliny the Elder on tap at Russian River was worth the trip, by itself.
