Trying new brews

Ive been wanting to try different beers lately but just couldnt bring myself to buy a $10 six pack of whatever and not like it.

Today I went to Winn Dixie and they had a mix your own sampler. Great idea for people like me. They had 20 brands on an endcap to choose from.

    You got some good ones there, not so sure about the Pumpkin Ale, but we sell a lot of it.

    Enjoy!!!!!

    Ive been a Bud Light drinker for life, but working in a box factory that makes the boxes for alot of these beer companies got me wanting to try new stuff.








    And no they will not send us free samples, we tried though.

    Not a good one in the bunch.
    Here's a few good brands to try

    Stone Brewing Co (I LOVE the Ruination and Arrogant Basterd)

    Lagunitas (Little Sumthin and Maximus IPA are very good)

    Big Sky Brewing Co (sipping on an IPA right now.)

    Boulevard (Double wide is my favorite of theirs.)

    I tried a couple of new (to me) Stella Artois and Spotted Cow. I enjoyed both.

    All decent choices. We have the same mixer-sixers here.

    We also have a "Midwest sampler" 24different bottles. Preboxed. Great for trying new beers.

    Now I just brew my own.

    You should realize this is an introductory thing...its purpose is for the OP's exact desire.


    Also, read "The Naked Pint". A must for a craft beer fan or someone.looking to get into craft beers.

    I'm old fashioned I guess, but I stick to my Guinness Stout for the most part.

    I did find a local craft beer store and have been trying a few lately. We got a growler of pumpkin-something-or-other and it was pretty good. I wouldn't sit and drink it all night, but it's good for a glass here and there.

    The Newcastle was awesome, the Blue Moon pumpkin was nasty, although I do like Blue Moon. The rest were mehh, then again drinking them all in 2 hours may have skewed things a bit.[;)]
