Thatís true, the Chicago scene is pretty crazy right now though making it a contender.

I am from California and since I like Bud Light I am not authority on craft brews. I am sure I could find a lot of great beers in most states, I am hoping to get out to Illinois and Indiana towards the end of summer.

Stay there you have way better craft brew than the Midwest. You have beat republic, Russian river, firestone Walker this list goes on of some of the best in the world. I would recommended the firestone Walker pils to get you going. Once you develop the taste for better beer you will never go back. Ask Nickman he used to drink miller and now is an expert of beer in just a few years.

Still here and there are plenty of great breweries. Lost Abbey is a (fairly) local brew. Most of the breweries are not on Orange County sadly, but there are one or two. A lot of them are up north, between 6 and 12 hours drive.

The bruery is in orange county, so is offshoot brewery which is actually an offshoot of the Bruery. They make really good hazy, juicy IPAs that even IPA haters would like. Also i think bottle logic is in OC.

As asinine as it seems, north orange county is a stretch, especially for drinking. I have a glass a buddy got me from the Bruery, never tried bottle logic but there is a place not to far called Barley Forge, I had a mango wheat from them that was tasty, if you like sweet beers. I will have to make a trek out north, a former coworker of mine just set up a meadery out in the same area as Bottle Logic.

Well this is a shame that this hasn't been used in over two years.

I'll talk IPAs with you, that's pretty much all I drink. I prefer the juicy fruity NEIPA.

I'm jealous. Cambodia is a beer wasteland, though Thailand is better.
Due to the covid restrictions, I haven't been able to return to Thailand since February. So I'm drinking more wine these days.

Other Half is good, had all kinds of those. I'm not sure if I have had anything from Equilibrium but I know I haven't had anything from Foreign Objects, I have never heard of that one.

Some of my local(at least Long Island, NY local) favorites are Garvies Point, Montauk, Sand City, Finback, and DUBCO.

My other favorites are Tree House and Trillium out of the Boston area. Ugh, so good. Sloop which is North of NYC and Industrial Arts is good too.

And with that said, my local Bev had some Equilibrium IPAs so I grabbed a couple. I'll let you know!

I see you're in FL. Cigar City makes a great IPA, Jai Alai, or however the hell it is spelled. I think they're out of the Tampa area.

Sitting pretty in Beer City. Founders is 5 minutes away with an additional 45 breweries in the city and, of course, breweries like Bell's and Old Nation all within easy driving distance.
I just picked up homebrewing (2 tier setup, not 3) and have a rum-pumpkin ale bottle conditioning with a Goose Island BCBS clone coming up next.
I love any beer but have a tendency towards the ABV monsters, so BA Imperial Stouts.. ...the boozier, the better.
Personal favorites would be New Holland Triple Mash 2020, City Built 13-Hour, Old Nation Boss Tweed, Avery Rumpkin and a litany of Transient Stouts/HazyIPAs.
Great thread!

Considering this as a possibility in the future. How fast do you find you need to go through a keg before it starts to turn on you? How often are you throwing one (or more) back? One a day, a few a week, 2 before breakfast?

Well the craft beers typically come in a 1/6 barrel, so that's about 41 pints. Since I usually only keep 2 on tap at a time, you're talking about 80 pints. I usually kill that in about a month...3 weeks during football season. lol. Plus I have friends who have no issue with helping.

I have a company that comes out about 3 times a year to flush/rinse out my lines. Restaurants have to have this done a lot more often due to volume, but I found that it's perfect for me and I'm not so much of a beer snob that I flush the lines when putting a new beer on the same tap line.

And because it's a 5 tap system, I usually shift between taps with every keg purchase just to equalize the use of each.
