Let me know, thanks!
Cool. Do you like regular Pale Ales? Geary's Pale Ale is one of the best I've ever had, and I'm almost inclined to send you a 12-er of that because it's so good. I wish the Summer batch was still around, it was f-ing to die for!
If you don't want a Pale Ale, then I can definitely get something else (plenty to choose from), but that's just my recomondation. If no to Pale Ales, I'll get a list of other brews and post them on here for you to choose from. Geez, this is going to be fun! We should trade state beer more often! Whooohoooo!
Some other choices off the top of my head:
- Geary's Hampshire Special (a strong ale...7% alchohol...thick and tasty!)
- Shipyard Export Ale
- Casco Bay Riptide Red Ale
- Bar Harbor Blueberry Ale (good n'tasty, but it's tough to drink a 6 pack of it)
- Sebago Slick Nick Ale (Winter brew)
- Casco Bay Old Port Ale
- Shipyard WInter Ale
- Gritty McDuff's Black Fly Stout
- Shipyard Blue Fin Stout
- Shipyard Old Thumper Extra Special Ale
- Gritty's Christmas Ale
Wheat Beer/White Beer:
- Allagash White (I don't recommend this though)
As you can see from this brief list, a lot of folks have nothing better to do than brew and drink beer up here in Maine. My personal preference is Geary's, espcially that Hampshire Special, but Shipyard and Casco Bay are pretty decent too. The Blueberry ale is good, but again, tough to drink an entire 6-er without getting sick of the blueberry taste. Maybe I can grab a single of that and throw it in with a 6 pack for ya, just so you can taste it. Either way, let me know.
