Good local brewery going out of business. Got too big too fast and I think fell victim to the explosion of brewery competition over the last 3 years

He fell victim to brewing an inferior product.

Any quality breweries in the Green Bay area?

I'm not familiar with breweries in Green Bay proper, (Hinterland has a large footprint across the street from Lambeau, but I've not tried the product) but there's one in Algoma that I've frequented and can recommend:

If you are going to go as far as Algoma, I highly recommend Lion's Tail in Neenah

Sorry late to the party. Titletown is a fun little tour - reminds me a lot of Lakefront. Beer is pretty good, tour is pretty fun, tap room on the roof is a cool place to hang out. Just a good way to kill off a couple hours, but not something you'll kick yourself for years if you miss.

So how'd everyone do in their BCBS search? Not much variety in CO, got 5 bottles BCBS, one BCBW.  I should restate that - a few cases of coffee and northwoods got here, but I was about 5-10 places too far back in line to get either of those.

Pro tip for DIY BSBS Coffee...make a 24 steep of your favorite dark roasted cold brew in a French press. The the next blend 1 part coffee with 9 parts Original BCBS to make a BCBS Coffee. If you want to make this year's, just get Intelligentsia Black Cat Espresso.


But I like to throw handfuls...

Allotment was up and the line a bit shorter at my local Binny's this year.  Walked in after the line was depleted and got 4 BCBS and 2 Barleywine.  Probably could have obtained other variants had I got there an hour earlier.

Didn't hunt for any, just stopped at a gas station this morning that was fully stocked, no limit. They didn't have any idea of what they had. Got BCBS, coffee and Northwoods.

I hear these stories, but these sorts of things seem to never happen in Colorado.

Good tip.  I don't even like coffee+beer, would have given that one to friends!

Allotment was up and the line a bit shorter at my local Binny's this year.

Line wasn't bad here, but I heard allotment was down here, possibly due to an AB spat with the local brewers association.

I went to Lakefront Brewery instead of getting the 1 bottle limit nearby. Should get some BCBS later this week when my stepson calls on some of his accounts that put these aside for him.

A friend in SoCal took this pic at a Costco

Remember that local wholesalers are the ones who sell to retailers - not Goose. And the wholesaler in Denver is hot garbage. They really suck.

Not sure how much anyone is into cider, but this one is a must try if the distribution makes it out anywhere (might just be OR and WA). It is a wild yeast fermented pear cider. One of the best I have personally ever tried. Art and Science Humble Perry

Looks like they have all the licensing to buy online and ship to IL and WI!

While in Brooklyn last weekend, checked out Other Half brewing.

Lots of IPA experimentation, highly recommend.

It's just slightly sweeter KBS - which really isn't Founders best BA beer.

Well, I picked up a 750 of it from Sendik's last night, so maybe I'll give it a year or so in the cellar and crack it out for Xmas next year and report back.
