Miller Lite - I have low standards.

When I was in Chicago, Goose Island was good, but not a heavy drinker.

Can you save $$ brewing your own ... or is it strictly for hobby?
I figure it costs me 30 to 50 cents a pint to make my own, not counting equipment depreciation. I have recently gotten a friend started in this hobby. I think he has spent maybe $50 on equipment. Today I went with him to a supply shop and he got everything he needed (ingredients) to make 2 cases of beer for $27.

I spent about $100 on equipment when I started brewing. But I could have done it for about half that if I had shopped around a bit and started with buckets instead of glass carboys.

Ingredients for 5 gallons of beer start at about $30, and go up from there-depending on what you are making.

I'm really amazed it's here, because I don't think I've seen these brands anywhere else in the state.

Now if only they would get some beer from Big Sky Brewing in Missoula Montana.

Black Butte Porter is good stuff. Also try Kona Brewing Co. Pipeline Porter, it has a bit of Kona coffee in it.

Big Sky Brewing - Oh yeah, love that Moose Drool.

We also like Iron Horse Brewery's Irish Death.

I have a recipe for a Moose Drool clone. I need to try making it. Love the real stuff. Wonder if the recipe is close?
