We were clear around the corner from them when I was there last month. I got this one in my fridge right now. Finally found a distributor out here in my very own neighborhood.

We should start a board beer exchange


What are the nuts and bolts of this idea other than hijacking the community thread?

Hmmmmm I’m gonna look into it. I’ve just started liking beer (rarely drink, though), but the chocolate stouts always intrigued me.

Check out Porters too. Coffee porters are awesome. I wasn’t a beer drinker until a few years ago. Irish reds are a good place to start.

The only concern with a beer exchange is cross border shopping. I’ll have to see if it’s legal.

I see. You actually want to send beer! I could be down.

Have you not had La Fin Du Monde? It's a Quebecois beer :-)

Hi, Milonas here. I live in Orlando but don't like Magic. I always liked Ewing and his Knicks,but I would not have considered myself a Knicks fan (not much to like about them in recent memory except this year). What got me here is Enes Kanter, fellow Turkish guy, but I really loved this Knicks and I followed almost every game this year, even the road games :)

My favorite player is Lee (except Kanter of course). I am well aware that this is team KP, and loving Ntilikina is a must and Beasley is "MVP" but I think he is the most complete player. I am pleasantly surprised that most players are at 200% My least favorite player is NOT Beasley :) but THJ. He is too inconsistent to be the second option I don't think he is worth the money. Noah is not eligible for the choice. We all hate his contract.

I have been reading forums for a while now and recently decided to join. It is one of the most active (and obnoxiously bipolar) communities I have ever seen. Hopefully, I will stick around and get rid of the ball boy tag. :nonono:

A while ago you guys had an OT: Food thread going on this forum. Cant seem to find it but me and a few buddies are hitting up NY for a few weeks in May. Any reccomendations of things to do/eat/try? We are from Australia and never been to USA before.

so i love gambling. pissed when they took away poker online with real money - although i see they're bringing it back soon, hopefully. and i'm also happy to be only a few wins away from getting $50 from some kid when the knicks get more wins than last year


i just discovered OTB online, which is awesome. anyone else do OTB?

You won't find various options at grocery stores. Try more ethnic places. West Indian stores, Pubs, Bodegas, etc.

Dry stouts are more my taste. Stouts in general don't sell as much in America, so in some areas variety is harder to find. Colder states will have them in more stock tho. You're better off trying to order online from specialty websites instead. Or, if you find some good deals on Amazon.

Sorry to hear bud. :(

With Amazon owning Whole Foods now, you can expect teal grocery options more and more now, including various spirits and even home kits to make them:

Read on Twitter


Not sure if you have iOS or Android, but if you have iOS there's PLENTY of Apps in the store that have Beer of the Month options. Once you find the App you like, you just it what you like and they creatively send you options to try that you wouldn't ordinarily have access too. The same can be achieved with the aforementioned websites that specialize in unique spirit options (like Stouts).

This should help you get you started in your search:

Look for some local craft brewers. Any brewery worth going to will have a stout.
