Okay fellas. I've got a hankering something bad for a super cracker-y pilsner. You know, the kind that's like a nice piece of toasty bread. I've had only two that fit that description, and I can't for the life of me remember what they were. Any recommendations? The bread-ier the better.

A little sweet, and a little bitter on the after note but very smooth and one of the better cheap milk stouts I've tried.
One of my favorites. First had it in CO fresh on nitro tap.

Since you are here in the PNW you should be able to get Wayfinder out of Portland, who make amazing lagers and pilsners but have started to dabble in other styles. Anything from them will be good. Heater Allen from McMinnville, OR also makes very good Pilsners, as does Occidental who I think are here in Portland. But Wayfinder would be my go-to in this neck of the woods.

If I was in the PNW and had that craving, I would drink every single lager from Pfriem until I found what I was looking for.

I can walk from my house to their brewery and taproom, which I may just do when the weather warms up.

Even closer to me: Oskar Blues.

It's good to be the king in Longmont, CO.

I hail from Cincinnati these days, which has a lot of really good microbreweries. Platform from Cleveland recently opened a bar downtown and are showing up in stores lately. Everyone Ive had so far is amazing.

Just finished some gym day shorts the other day, I recommend.

I haven't heard of any of these. Am I actually a basic bitch?

Yeah, Pfriem is good, but it's not the one I'm thinking of.

I first had it at Bellevue Brewing, but it wasn't their in-house one cuz they were all out. When I asked what it was, I got two different answers. Then I tried to track down both options, and it turned out to be neither of them.

****ing brag about it. The main place I work is about to move almost literally next door to Black Raven brewery here in the Redmond/Woodinville area. What could go wrong?

Maybe. More likely that I'm a giant beer nerd.

More likely still is that, plus I don't know if you can get Heater Allen or Occidental outside of Portland.

Holy ****! Howdy neighbor indeed. I'm down south of Pike Road. One of my wife's and my favorite mini-dates is dumping the kids off with grandma for a few hours and walking over to the Tasty Weasel for a little respite.

I'm over by Kanemoto park, when the weather is warm I walk the dog up there for a Mama's. If you see a guy with a Choco Lab say hi!

I usually drink 12 packs of decent beer. Cost wise, it kind of adds up. My wife doesn't really drink. At what point does it make sense to get a mini kegerator? I have a mini fridge. I guess I'd need tanks of CO2 and all that. There are a ton of good breweries around me.

Will it stay good long enough?

I haven't done kegs since my 20s. My impression is that it will go bad before I can drink 5+ gallons of beer.

Does anyone do this. Or am I just a drunk?

Some quick math looks like you don't even save $ on a keg vs cans/bottles. Nevermind the tap and equipment.

^ I've thought of doing that myself. But, I enjoy a variety a bit too much. I find after a couple 12s (or 6s) of a brew. I'm burnt out on it and the lust is over. Flavor of the month is real.

I could probably do a pony of Coors Banquet in the summer. I like that stuff alone or with a bump of bourbon. But not sure about much else.. Don't think I could drink a pony of IPA before it becomes muted or outright old.

Same. Especially if it's just you and you aren't really having gatherings, you're not saving a lot of money and I enjoy beer for the variety and culinary experience as much as anything else.

Variety of beers, and variety of alcoholic beverages. My dad asked if I wanted his kegerator a few years ago and I said no. A 12 pack of any one variety is all I'll ever finish.

Only reason I would buy one is if I continue to home brew more IPAs, which take to kegging much better than being bottled.

The best thing about a kegerator is that you don't have to finish it anytime soon! It will still be fresh in a month as it will in a day.
