Just picked up a 4-pack of Green Flash Rayon Vert at Woodmanís West last night and it made me realize how many new breweries have come into WI the last year or so.

Sure, weíve lost Stone, Dogfish Head, Allagash, Two Brothers, etc. over the years, but itís fun to try new places like Tallgrass, Alaskan, Hoppiní Frog, Clown Shoes, Mission, etc.

The downside is I can never decide what to get when Iím at the beer store--there are almost too many options now!

There are a lot of options and Iíve liked what Iíve had from Clown Shoes and Green Flash so far. At one point I wanted to try every beer that hit the shelves but thatís just not a realistic option anymore.

Thatís right...and I wonder if the long-rumored Deschutes infiltration will ever become reality.

Yep...and itís especially hard when very few stores will break up 4-packs and only have a small percentage of 6-packs in their mix 6 section. Iíd throw all my business to a store that did that.

That would figure. I just snagged a 2011 Abyss and felt pretty special.

Iím pretty sure itís the breweries or distributors that pull out of Wisconsin on their own and nothing to do with how shitty our distributors are. Do I prefer Stone and Dogfish to New Glaurus? Heck yeah, but Iím in the minority and understand why breweries pull out of the state. In the end weíve got it pretty good here and hopefully someday Milwaukee will get some nanos/brewpubs that I really really want!
