Kegortaor

Unread postby jb » Sun Apr 18, 2010 12:44 pm

Because my female is the coolest one on the planet, my early B-Day gift is a spankin' new kegorator. I know, right? Like giving Tony Montana yay-yo or a militria member some mo' stupid.

So I'm just learning about where to get kegs etc. Vintage Estages in Boardman has a really cool owner who will order from his micro brew distributor sources for me (hoping for some ale or IPA from Breckenridge, great divide, Bell's, souther tier, stuff like that, etc) and just pass along cost plus a taste for him, but wondering if anyone has nay other experience(s). I'm n0t talking about the $ 35 / 1/2 barrell of little kings we used to buy 8 of for any given weekend at the college houe in Kent back in the day, or the lame stuff I'd buy when and if peeker ever visited, I'm talking some good micro stuff.

Just fishing for ideas / knowledge.

Inquire about the Erie Brewing Co. stuff my man. The RailBender is a solid everyday all around brew and occasionally get yourself a Misery Bay IPA or Mad Anthony's APA.

Wow. A kegerator for your favorite hobby. I bet she had to really think about that or whether to take care of your other everyday habit.

Glad she went with the kegerator over the case of lube, Hustler subscription and a carton of kleenex for you. :lmfao: ;-) ;) :wink:

A real man would put something with at least 10% ABV as the first keg. Don't be a puss. If you are going Great Divide forget the Titan and go with this

Giving JB more beer is akin to providing Tony Montana, the main figure in 'Scarface'; more cocaine or making what JB believes to be already stupid people (militia members) even more dumb.

I hope that helps. I worked on it for hours and got as close as I could given what I had to work with. ;-) ;) :wink:

Phil from VE called today and the winner of my inaugural kegorator keg is....


http://www.southerntierbrewing.com/beers.html

phin & matt’s
brewed with American hops & barley
When we sat down to collaborate on this beer, we knew we had to create something extraordinary. After sampling a wide array of great beers, we hit upon an idea: use vast amounts of whole hops, the finest malted barley North America has to offer, and crystal filtered artesian water. Thus creating this classic American style pale ale.
5.4% abv • 7.3ºL • American Pale Ale
12 oz (6 pack & 24 bottle case) / 1/2 keg / 1/6 keg


As much based on availability as anything. Ziner, will look for that gd ipa, but not quite as easy to snag east of the Misissippi. The local AB distributor does do Goose Island, so that has potential as well. Good price, too.

The only Goose Island worth a damn is their IPA FWIW, and I say that trying to be unbiased because I do have a love of IPA's. Honkers Ale = Fat Tire, boring, bland, tasteless.

Reading JB and SoulDawg having a conversation in the Browns forum is the worst. By far. It's like trying to decipher Mandarin Chinese being spoken by Helen Keller to a spider monkey who is responding in Arabic while subtitles written in Sanskrit are at the bottom of the thread.

goose island's regular lineup is definitely boring, but their special releases are usually really good. had their bourbon county stout while in chicago and it was excellent. the night stalker stout was great, too.

and that phin and matt's is a good choice. really good, sessionable beer. if i had a kegerator in my house, i'd be in trouble.
