I can't say I've had all their beers, but can say that all I've had have been amazing! These dudes are cranking out some seriously great beer. Just tried this one tonight. I generally prefer a darker heavier beer, "but" I've gotta say this one might just be my new favorite.  Great flavor, silky smooth, slight citrus backtone, 8% ABV totally unnoticeable. From my perspective, "two" thumbs up and a couple more fingers.  From Edmund's Oast  Charleston, SC - "Plasma Gun."

An odd symbiotic relationship finds me in a unique position. This being, that a local craft beer store sells my sauces. They sell quite a bit actually. As a beer "customer" prior to "vendor", they have seized on this, which is to say, I haven't made a "lot" of money there, but have made a helluva lot of beer.... if you follow. A decent trade, not so much shuffling of money, but of stocking fridge.  ;) This allows for great sampling of stuff and I am really keen on trying "local"  brews.

 

I mentioned in prior posts, some local breweries who have excelled greatly - Edmund's Oast, Palmetto Brewery, Westbrook and a couple others. There really is a great local scene blossoming with some great beer. The one to follow has a few different offerings (I shared one called "Church Lady" before) by a company called Revelry Brewing. It was 'ok' at best. Love to give good props to local dudes, would love to do so here but cannot.

They charge a premium for their beer as with some of the proven folks, but it just ain't quite there yet in my opinion. Yes, it is a decent stout, but sub-par for the price. One time deal for me.... I have great hopes for these dudes and hope they make it, but they gotta "up their game."

Saint Arnold and Saint Patrick were homies I think...

 

Grass Snake,

 

I love a good Bock beer. Fell in love with it in the late 1980's when military service found me in Lisbon, Portugal. They had a beer there called "Super Bock." It came in a very large bottle (can't recall exactly the size) but do recall that the monetary exchange rate was 100 Escudos per American dollar. The beer cost 23 Escudos. It was then and to date, the greatest "cheap beer" I've ever had. Haven't had it since however..  I was only accustomed to average corporate American beer at the time so it was a new experience. It has stuck with me ever since. I think of it everytime I see a "Bock." 

 

Slainte'   :cheers:
