Damn, hope they don't mess with what is working.

What WAS working? double cream stout maybe, I never was much a fan of Bells

Two Hearted
Hopslam
all of the planet series
Consecrator Doppelbock
Expedition Stout
OBERON
Third Coast Old Ale

IMO, they're one of the best of the Midwest.

Bell's Porter is extremely good.  Two Hearted and Oberon are pretty tasty as well.    I hope they continue these unchanged.

OK, I can get behind Hopslam and Expedition, I was not familiar with the planet series but would have interest in Saturn or Uranus. I never saw the lure of 2 Hearted or Oberon.

Good thing there is plenty of options for us all, my current favorite brew is Backwoods Bastard, love that it's out all year now.

Founder's is amazing and I love Backwoods Bastard as well.

Oberon is a great beer to start the summer and a top notch wheat beer for a warm June Saturday after cutting the grass or watching the sunset.

They sell Bells out here in Connecticut.  I never bought because I have too many good local choices.

Has anyone tried the Indeed Pistachio Cream Ale?  Maybe I'm crazy but it's not half bad.

I like this beer as well (and typically don't like Indeed's beers very much). For those that like it, Point has a seasonal pistachio brown ale that is also delicious.

Three Floyd's?  Be extremely careful Galway.  That can inflict quite a bit of damage if you get carried away

Yup 3 Floyd's, took the trip to lovely Hammond Munster, IN during an extended lunch.

And don't worry I have a whole whisk(e)y & stout room dedicated to containing any said damage   ;)

My cousin lives in St. John, IN which I think is about 30 mins away from Munster.  He knows the owners fairly well.  According to my cousin, when they started years ago, they literally had no idea what they were doing from a business perspective.  They also didn't particularly care about making any coin.  Apparently, after 10 yrs or so, they decided maybe they should do this thing for a living.  I think they made the right choice.

 I believe people used to line up for Dark Lord when they made like 15 bottles a year.  Are they still limiting their production?

Yes they release it once a year and it's limited. They might not care but between the quality of beer (despite being ridiculously hoppy for certain styles) and food they're doing it right. Excited to see what comes out of the new distillery.

I like stories when the quality of the product(s) destermine ultimate success.  Clearly there was huge word of mouth with 3 Floyd's.

I'd heard great things about Zombie Dust for years but could never find anywhere to get it.  Finally got some from a liquor store and then didn't even end up liking it that much :) .  It wasn't horrible but it had been so hyped to me and don't think it could ever live up to its hype.  We stopped at 3 Floyds for lunch on our way to Indy a few years ago (a little out of the way but a fun stop) and I picked up a few of their beers to take home then - I discovered I liked some of their other beers better than Zombie Dust.

I'm with you,.  I haven't had it for a few years but never thought it was worth the hype.  I like Robert the Bruce if it still exists.
