There are also several great breweries in the Denver, CO area -- Denver, Boulder, Longmont, Fort Collins... Home of Oskar Blues, New Belgium (Fat Tire), Left Hand, and several others, not to mention Coors for you "light" beer lovers. I've "toured" several of them on my trips to CO.

Everybody has their favorites, but for any IPA lovers looking for recommendations my absolute FAVORITE beer is Sweetwater IPA, brewed in Atlanta. Nicely hoppy and very flavorful, but not too bitter. Someone mentioned Ballast Point: I'm not a fan of beers brewed with fruit, but the Ballast Point Grapefruit IPA is especially nice from the tap (for some reason, it's not as good from the can).

This year's Beer Camp Tropical IPA from Sierra Nevada is incredible. It's a limited edition, but one worth finding IMO. I just found it by the case at Costco for a buck a bottle. It's got a crisp, clean, fresh hops accent...almost like a breath of hops. Very unique and refreshing.

Beer Camp ... sounds like a place you get sent to, if you've been "good"

Well, in a way, it is! My sentence starts June 18th in San Francisco.

Sierra Nevada Brewing Co

Last year's version of Beer Camp beer was very different than this year's. It changes each year in craft beer fashion.

Went down to Point Roberts to pick up a new fishing PFD and picked up a 1/2 sack of Slow Ride.
I think I got thrown off a bit by the mention of "Belgium" in the name. Anyway not bad, but a bit too grape fruity for me.

Things definitely been getting better. Seems like a new craft brewery pops up somewhere every day. And I have no problem with it.

Just had a New Belgium Ranger IPA last night for the first time. If you like an IPA with a lot of hop nose, this one is REALLY good!

I picked up some of these a couple weeks ago and really liked it. I'll be buying more if I can find it again.

A recent post by an Aussie made me think...
The only beer I ever had at sea was Foster's courtesy of the Australian Navy.
After they sunk my ship. It came in a bigger can and had more alcohol than what I was use to (I figured out later). But it was a good beer.

Were you on the USS Evans by any chance? It's bad enough that we sunk you, but to give you Fosters is adding insult to injury. Actually I shouldn't make too light of that, as I think about 60 sailors were lost in that accident. We had some family friends who were posted to HMAS Melbourne over the years, one was onboard when the Melbourne sunk the Voyager, another bad accident.

We are speaking "sparkling wine." Champagne comes only from a particular part of France.
