Maybe I should whip out my Blackberry while I'm shopping, that probably wouldn't look too douchey...

I do look up beers at ratebeer.com, but there is a fuckton of expensive beers at the store which are unknown to me. Especially these 4 packs for like $16. I guess I should start taking photos so I can remember their names and look them up.

This is at my grocery store, there is no beer buyer. Fancy beer is everywhere.

Ah yeah. OTOH I've always talked to the beer-tenders walking the floor. Same with the wino's dept.

I asked my beer dude for a rec and here we are. Indy from 2 zip codes away. Pretty wonderful Hazy IPA. They even give the full deets posted below.

TL;DR it good. A perfect Summer beer if you need something at 7.3lbs

KULSHAN HELIOTROPE
India Pale Ale

MALT: 2-Row, Flaked Oats, Munich II, Caramalt
HOPS: Idaho 7, Mosaic, Citra, Cascade
IBU: 83
ABV: 7.3%
SEE: Golden straw in color with a fine white head
SMELL: Strong fruit aromas of grapefruit, mango, peaches, and slight berry
TASTE: Mango, grapefruit and grapefruit pith followed by a dry pine finish

Named after the popular ridge trail that leads to the base of Mount Baker’s Coleman Glacier, Heliotrope IPA is a mouthwatering fusion of classic West Coast IPA characteristics, and new-school fruity, juicy hop flavor.  Apricot, tangerine and grapefruit dominate in both aroma and flavor, accented by milder notes of pineapple and black tea.  Balanced yet fun, smooth yet flavorful, Heliotrope IPA is truly a delicious creation. - Kulshan

I take chances and just buy the shit to support the local vendor. This is kinda of a goofy beer, maybe good extremely chilled in the heat of summer, IDK

I see what you're saying! Best I can tell BP has gone back to indy owner, or, investors group of small. And I'll double-check the can if I get one from the fridge later - I thought it had Indy Brewers Assoc badge  - not sure if that means anything but is why I chanced it at store before looking up ownership. But this looks ok:

Sampling some Monkey 47 Schwarzwald Dry Gin. Not sure what it is yet but it's pretty hot, 94 proof. 47 botanicals I guess. Gin & Tonic tonite. w/ Key Lime bottle juice instead of lime slice. I need to source some boo-teek tonic water. Unless y'all find Schweppes acceptable, I don't like the ingredients of it, corn syrup in there, I believe, yuk. But its a good G&T. Bring on the Summer.

I like booch in cocktails. Do that and it’ll ramp up that wimpy 4.5 ABV.

The 4.5 was actually a nice change from the double IPAs I'm usually slamming.

Can the probiotics (or whatever) in Kombucha survive in an alcoholic beverage? (Isn’t there something that’s supposed to be alive in there, like yogurt and kimchi?)

Ah, yes. That's what I'll do with my watery kimchi - shots! Also dill pickle juice I've been saving - 4 kinds of shots. I can feel the intenstinal fortitude building now!

I was going to claim that I've never spent as much on a single beer, but then I remembered all the $20 PBRs and Modelos I got at various stoner rock festivals....

I really like what this brewery does. We went there in February. That first beer on the list is Split Second. It’s really developing nicely. Is my favorite of theirs. Once it’s gone it’s gone. That’s the case with those types. I wanted to buy the last bit but I left some for somebody else.
