    Looks like some good beer! I'll be drinking none. I haven't been the same since my porter tasting party that gave me a bad hang-over. You know when you are hovering over the toilet thinking "I'll never drink again"? I'm starting to think that this time it's the truth.

    Maybe I just need to pick up a few good ales or IPAs to enjoy. That's what I miss.

    Never heard of Wolaver's befo'.

    They're brewed by Otter Creek out of Middlebury, VT.. Otter Creeks "Organic Division" if you will... I got threw about 7 last night before it was time to go to bed. The Brown Ale was kinda weak, the IPA was pretty good and the Pale Ale was especially good. Best of the bunch!! Which is unusual for me because I'm a HUGE IPA drinker. I've got 5 more left for tonight! Yippee!! :D

    I tried a few organic IPAs at the Great American Beer Fest and they ran the gammut of very good to undrinkable swill.

    I wonder if I tried Wolaver's....... :think:

    yeah i tried their oatmeal stout and it was kind of bland, maybe some styles aren't suited to being organic

    No - I think it's more that some brewers aren't suited to make beer. ;)

    Miller Lite doesn't taste cheap? :think:

    I solved that problem when I was a dirtbag college student simply by not drinking alot of beer. I could always afford a couple pitchers/week of the good stuff.

    :stupid: I actually like the taste of beer so I'd rather have 6 good ones then 30 crappy ones. I drink beer for the enjoyment and liquor for drinking, much more economical.

    I made it through college on cases on Natty Light bar bottles when money was tight. I feel (felt?) your pain.

    I like Wolaver's. I'm not a big IPA fan, but the brown ale is good and I like the oatmeal stout, even if some think it is a bit bland (which it may be). Regular Otter Creek is good as well. I almost always have some in the fridge. My fav's from there are Oktoberfest, Stovepipe Porter and the Copper Ale. Middlebury Ale is okay, even if it does taste like water and berries. Having the brewery about 2 miles away helps too!

    When I was a dirtbag drunken college student I'd just became good friends with the bartenders. Anything I ordered was $1, a beer, pitcher of beer, mixed drink or even a pitcher of mixed drinks. I just mad sure to invite the bartenders to our parties when we served $29 kegs of Milwaulkees Best.

    Yep - at parties on the w/e it was usually $2 for all-you-can-drink crap beer at somebody's party.

    I never spent much on beer.

    This was the beer of choice when buying:

    I like stovepipe porter as well. I noticed otter creek has kind of a distinctive taste a lot of the beers seem to have. Its not a bad thing, but it doesnt really make me want one style versus another particularly, except the porter.

    I am a poor college student, but don't like getting completly sloshed so it works out, I have two asahi's and a steamy bowl of ramen or a guiness its a beer that drinks like a meal!
