I know that but there is nothing In there line I would ever get super excited about and I've tried just about their entire line at one point or another...its not bad but its not great...very similar to shiner's stuff

kind of similar to how people were excited to get Canebreak


you should be excited about that because it is a local craft brewer actually putting out a very nice brew thatn you can easily get jsut about anywhere...I'm always in support of the local stuff FIRST!

It's just nice to have more choices. I'm by no means a beer snob so I like Fat Tire.

And as somebody else mentioned, New Belgium makes a hell of a lot more than just Fat Tire.

it is on draft in most of south LA (nowhere in north LA), but it is very hard to find in bottles, even in Lafayette

You can get Canebrake in draft in NOLA, Lafayette and BR and that is about it. You can get it in bottles in a few select stores in Lafayette and BR is suppose to be getting some bottles next week.

Lips of Faith series


With all the hip LA kids wanting to be cool and drinking Fat Tire, that leaves more Lips of Faith on the shelf for me and you.

New Belgium coming to LA is a step in the right direction. Other brewers will see this and hopefully follow.

alright. I may bust it open after the kids go down. I have't heard of anyone who has had it yet but I like the style so we'll see.

Lips of Faith are awesome. Even some of their seasonals and other regulars are good IMO. 1554, Ranger, Shift, and Red Hoptober are all real solid.

Per NBB

quote:

They also plan to roll out an experimental brew from their incredibly popular “Lips of Faith”
series. These will come in 22-ounce “bomber” bottles, followed by draft beer and smaller bottles approximately a month later
