Dank House is  good. Their blonde ale is very good. They might become the best brewery in Licking County. Right now I would put Buckeye Lake Brewery above them. I would rate Dqnk House above Homestead and Three Tigers.

Whoops, I said superman, but I meant cat_lover. He's local to my current location, you're local to my hometown. Sorry about that.

I'll have to check them out when I'm back home next week.

No problem. I think they only have three brews right now(blonde,IPA, and a stout) but all three are good quality. There is another Micro in town located in the old Damon's but I haven't checked it out yet. I have heard from friends that it is okay but nothing special.

At Dankhouse now. I got their IPA and my wife got the stout. Both are great brews.

Picked up a bottle of Nightmare on Brett from Crooked Stave at Jungle Jim's today. I've been looking for this one for the last year after trying it at the Cincinnati Winter Beer Fest last year.

I love this beer. Crooked Stave puts out some great stuff. They had this Cherry one on tap at my local bottle shop cant remember the name but it was $14 for a 10oz pour and when it was gone I was very sad.

I'm planning on waiting until my 35th birthday (Feb 16, so not long) to enjoy it, but it's tempting to open up the bottle now. We are working the VIP room for the beer fest again this year, and that happens a week or so before my birthday, so I might have the opportunity to have a little more of it at no cost before popping open my bottle.

It's a great festival, for sure. Expect me to be posting up a storm in this thread as I start sampling throughout the Connoiseur room on Friday night.

Not sure what that gif is supposed to mean, but it's pretty funny.

Made it up over Yellow Springs Brewery this past weekend for the Keyholder release. 

"On Saturday, March 3 at 11 am Keyholder will be released exclusively in our taproom for $10 per 4-pack and will be featured on our tap list. This NEIPA has a single hop rather than a blend of hops. Exclusively using Mosaic results in a smooth, fruity and floral body with an aggressive, traditional bitter mouth-feel." 

Yellow Springs Brewery Keyholder isn't bad but I still prefer Jackie O's Mystic Mama or White Rajah, when it comes to IPA's.

Drinking a Founders Breakfast Stout that Curly J gave me YEARS ago. It has aged spectacularly.

In honor of Curly J, may I ask if it was "balls deep" good? :-)

I picked up a six pack cans of Great Lakes Light Keeper white ale at Mustard Seed Market in Fairlawn.

Pretty good.
