New Belgium makes some good sours that aren't over the top. Certainly a good way to ease into them. La Folie is good and the Terroir is supposedly very tasty....

That's probably true. I'd imagine most of the brews I've rated fall between 3-4 with an very small number falling below 3 or above 4.....

I'd like to see a feature added to BA or RB where you can remove the ratings from locals or anyone from the same State as the brewery.
Local bias plays heavily into the ratings of some beers......

Try some variety then and figure out what you like. I'd recommend an IPA, a Stout and possibly something on the Saison/Fruit side of things.
The Jekyll IPA sounds okay, the Terrapin Moo-Hoo is solid and the Lindeman's Framboise is certainly unique...

That's really a pretty weak taplist. Good to see some locally produced brews but you can purchase the vast majority of those at your local bottle shop. The Beer Camp brews alone would be enough to turn me away. :lol:...

I would first urge you to consider the source of the information you've linked and what motivation they may have to create controversy at this hospital. Unions thrive on this type of story and fanning the flames is their primary tactic in unionizing healthcare facilities. In my experience most uni...
