Favorite new beer find/discovery for 2016
 
Mine would be New Belgium Abbey Ale and/or Collective Arts Stranger Than Fiction for the year that was.

Dead heat between them, but way ahead of the rest of the field.

Best new beer I had was pow pow. Best new beer that's actually available (somewhat) was single cut bon bon.

The wife and I spent the last few months working on the NH brewers guild passport card. hit 37 different breweries. Found some gems and some duds.

Really liked Schillings up in Littleton NH...bit of a haul though. FTB up in Derry had some really good stuff as well.

as far as something that I don't have to travel to get....I usually fallback on Night Shift Santilli or a release of Morph.

SOS still my standard bearer

Nice surprises punching above their weight:

Lost Nation Mosaic and Pour Judgement

I must have had a bad batch of the NS Santilli, as it was barely drinkable. Whirlpool is killer though

I've been enjoying the canned peak organic IPA's.

Probably, I love the Santilli but find the Whirlpool kinda weak...reminds me of a session brew

also rediscovered Pot and Kettle since its canned now.

I was lucky enough to try Pow Pow and it was as good as advertised. Another beer I really liked last year was Nimble Giant by Troegs. It was a limited release DIPA that I hope the put into their regular rotation.

I recently had Consolation Prize by Lord Hobo and really enjoyed it. Since then it's been pretty tough to find at least in my area.

It's not my style of beer but I received some Sweet Baby Jesus as a gift around the holidays and that was very good as well.

I'm with the boss man on the Mosaic. I've gone out of my working woman's way to get the treehouse, heady, etc. only to be disappointed more than once. I'm not really down with feeling like I'm not worthy of buying a beer from a brewery I have to first drive a half hour to 4 hours or more and then spend an hour (or more) in line for and get a greater than thou attitude when I beg for my "allotment" for at the register. Is the beer good? yes. but I like to drink beer more than I like to wait in line for it soooooo.... LN Mosaic is not only attainable but so good and more importantly, accessible for the most part. I have even compared side by side with the heavy hitters and preferred it!

Will need to try the Consolation Prize - I think Haxton's RT2 Warwick had it the other day

Peak organic IPA in the cans.
It's replaced Sierra Nevada as my daily drinker.

I keep hearing good things about Peak Organic. I'm going to grab some next time I stop at my local store.

I've been looking for the Lost Nation Mosaic to give it a try but no luck yet.

I also just have some No Filter from Thomas Hooker and I thought it was very good if you like fruity IPAs.

Ettaler.... anything just a short plane ride and drive to the south of Bavaria. The monk's have got it down...

Die Klosterbrauerei Ettal wurde im Jahr 1609 gegründet und kann auf eine über 400 Jahre ununterbrochene Braugeschichte zurückblicken. Sie gehört damit zu den ältesten Betrieben unserer Abtei.

Exhibit A Cat's Meow


Juice Bomb style... very tasty... almost as good as Julius

Just grabbed some Fuzzy Baby Ducks for the first time. Very good stuff.
