    I just called a place in Geneva, IN and they said they just got a case. Said it usually doesn't last more than two hours.

    I am an hour away from Geneva.

    If it doesn't taste like fairy dust then I do plan on killing myself.

    But seriously I have just heard a lot of great things and am looking for something new to try.

    They don't care. They make what they want, when they want, and if you don't like it you can suck it. If you drive out to their brewery and they're out? "Eh, we make what we want. Have some Daisy Cutter."

    BA SCORE
    68
    poor

    2/5 rDev -26.7%
    look: 2 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

    This poured with the clearest of pale yellow complexion but the mass of bubbles that clung to the glass blocked the visibility. The head was a huge mass of tiny bursting bubbles that grew out of control.

    The nose is a sour malt, kind of metallic, with a light corn and breadiness.

    The flavor is sour, metallic, corny, piney hop maybe.

    The feel is prickly and brash with so much carbonation.

    I simply couldn't even entertain myself with this and had to eventually pour it out.

    1.91/5 rDev -30%
    look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

    Gave the appearance a 3 simply because I had it straight out of the can so figured it would only be fair to pick the middle value.

    This is pretty awful. Tastes like alcoholized soda pop basically. Very sweet, heavy corn and rice overtonses. Glad I didn't pour this into a glass actually.

    Yucky yucky poo poo, I didn't order a mountain dew mixed with vodka. Ok, that's hyperbole, but damn, that's about right.

    2.24/5 rDev -17.9%
    look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

    Pours a brilliant golden straw color with a foamy one inch ivory head that lingers.

    Metal, grain, and floral hops dominate the aroma, with corn adding sweetness.

    Grain and corn form the backbone of the flavor profile, with a metallic/lime tang rounding out the slightly bitter, bready finish.

    Body is fairly light, with somewhat high carbonation and an astringent finish.

    Overall, a brew I won't be frequently drinking.

    Not disagreeing, it's not the best, but it's a Cincinnati staple. Been around a very long time.

    "Hudepohl Brewing Company is a brewery established in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1885 by founder Ludwig Hudepohl II. Hudepohl was the son of Bavarian immigrants and had worked in the surgical tool business before starting his brewery. Hudepohl combined with Schoenling Brewing Company in 1986. Today, the Hudepohl-Schoenling Brewing Company is a wholly owned subsidiary ofChristian Moerlein Brewing Co.."

    Hudy is gross, but it's our gross beer.

    Plenty of better breweries around the city.

    I was going to drink some wine tonight, but maybe now I'm looking at getting some beers. I had a couple from Atwater Brewery in Detroit last Saturday that I lifted out of Constant's tailgate - maybe I'll get a sampler of that.

    GOAT pop, except for maybe Vernors. And Red pop.

    And I'm talking real Vernors, not that candy - ass 2% stuff you get in a bottle now. I used to get soda fountain Vernors that would make your eyes water.

    I had my first ever Bell's Hopslam last weekend. I've been annoyed for years by the shitheads on the Michigan boards talking about it non-stop when it is hard to get in Michigan and impossible in Chicago, but it was really good. Not cheap at $20 a six-pack, but it was maybe worth it. Also, 10% ABV.

    I randomly stopped at the dinky little liquor store on my way home and asked, and they had a few six packs hidden in the cooler. They were only selling one per customer, although he said they expected more and he'd sell me another. I haven't been back for more, because I'm lazy and I usually don't think of it. And one $20 sixer a year is probably good enough for me. I spend enough money on beer as it is.

    For future reference - you'll often see crazy, stupid lines for hopslam at the craft beer liquor stores. But at the grocery store down the street, there might be pallets of it. Busch's in Ann Arbor had a fucking tower of it a few weeks ago. Same as last year.

    Hey Joe Top 10: Best food in Big Ten cities
    Joe Rexrode, Detroit Free Press8:50 p.m. EDT March 28, 2016

    From New York to Lincoln, delicious dishes from "B1G country"


    Maybe it was that Easter buffet, or maybe I’m just hungry again, but something is telling me to rank my favorite food items in the Big Ten.

    I’ll keep this to “B1G country,” which eliminates some sushi I had on this beat in Maui, some schnitzel in Germany, a ridiculous chicken/mashed potatoes/omelet thing at Hash House A Go Go in San Diego, and some barbecue in Durham, N.C. I’ll also eliminate East Lansing/Ann Arbor from the list, while mentioning that the Peanut Barrel olive burger and entire menu at Zingerman’s are worth your attention.

    1.Lobster roll, Mary’s Fish Camp, New York -- Yeah, that’s right. New York, in case you haven’t heard, is RUTGERS COUNTRY. This is a tiny place in the West Village, and I never would have heard of it if not for our leader in all food choices, Shawn Windsor (who is responsible for most of this list). There may be a thousand better dishes and places to eat in Manhattan, but I will go find this lobster roll every time I’m within 100 miles. It’s that good.


    2.Eddie D-Licious, Champs Sports Grill, State College, Pa. -- My favorite Big Ten sandwich in traditional Big Ten country (expansion that happened in the 1990s now qualifies as long ago), this is prime rib, ham, soppressata, provolone, roma tomatoes and pesto on a baguette. Note: This is not a chain restaurant despite the name. Another note: They sell beverages in yards there, if you’re into that kind of thing.


    3.Cheese curds and prime rib, The Old Fashioned, Madison, Wis. – One of many great places near the capitol building in Madison, this one has the best cheese curds I’ve ever had. Now I’m sure someone from Madison will see this and rattle off 10 places with cheese curds WAY better than the cheese curds at The Old Fashioned. And that’s good. We can learn from each other here.


    4.Pizza with everything, Papa Del’s, Champaign, Ill. – This became a tradition (Windsor started it) at Illinois, a call to Papa Del’s about an hour before getting out of either Assembly Hall or Memorial Stadium, because that’s how long it takes the 17-inch monster with everything to cook. The meatballs are the size of racquet balls. And it takes half the press box to finish one. This is better than any Chicago-style pizza I’ve had in the actual city of Chicago.


    5.Raspberry Beret, Leadbelly, Lincoln, Neb. – I have to admit, when I ordered this for the first time, I mostly just did it to tell people I tried it. I would now order it every time. It’s a burger with jerked ginger peanut butter, jalapeno-raspberry jam and candied bacon. Don’t let that scare you.


    6.Reuben, Shapiro’s Deli, Indianapolis – Man, it’s always a tough choice at Shapiro’s, which I visit every time I get near Indy. You’ve got your meatloaf, or your baked chicken, and you should always supplement with vegetable soup and a deviled egg. The Reuben usually wins the day. The house-baked rye bread makes it.


    7.Beef stroganoff, Tip Top Kitchen, Columbus, Ohio – Lots of good stuff on the menu at this fun downtown restaurant/bar, including the pot roast sandwich. The stroganoff is exceptional, though, and this is coming from someone whose grandmother specializes in it. Have I mentioned that I do occasionally mix in a salad?


    8.Chicken and noodles, Apple Dumpling, Urbana, Ill. – If you can find this place, a few miles from the Illinois campus, tucked behind a cornfield, you’ll be happy. Chicken and noodles, beef and noodles, great fried chicken. Make sure you are hungry walking in, and don’t plan to eat for a long time afterward.


    9.Milk braised pork shoulder, The Purple Pig, Chicago – The turkey leg confit also is awfully good. The chorizo-stuffed olives. I could go on and on.


    10. Shrimp cocktail, St. Elmo Steak House, Indianapolis – You have to try it at least once. It’s not very big and it is pretty expensive, but the horseradish-heavy cocktail sauce is a test of resilience that will make the worst ice-cream headache of your life seem like a sneeze.

    Going against the pot roast sandwich at Tip Top is a strange way of being different. That being said, I haven't had the stroganoff there and I love some beef stroganoff....so, I'll have to try.
