Not in NJ. I go into PA rarely and it always sells out quickly.

Nothing like going to a party/gathering and you're surrounded by cheap beer.

Any interest in extending this into a food thread as well? Decided to start getting into Indian food at home recently instead of ordering all the time, finally figured out the right ratio of jalapenos for dahl and just did a pretty good potato curry (side effect, whole apt smells like curry). Trying to figure out some more doable Indian recipes.

Had a bacon bomb rauchbier from some place called Brenner last weekend, never had anything like it before, ended up liking it a lot.

Friend has been sitting on a few bottles of this:http://www.beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/1146/10672/, thinking about trying to drink em next week or week after.

I'm cool with that.

Always wanted to try Indian food. But, aside from going into Philly, there isn't any places in South Jersey I don't think, anyway.

I've had success making chicken tikka masala based on this recipe:

http://www.thekitchn.com/recipe-chicken-tikka-masala-recipes-from-the-kitchn-195785

Primary changes I make are more cayenne (including adding it to the yogurt marinade) and crushed tomatoes instead of diced for smoother sauce.

There's some good Indian around here. Indeblue is in Collingswood, and jumped to Philly a year ago. Indiya (a couple of locations) is pretty good, too.

Anyone know anything about Camden House beer? Can't find much info on them but assume they are local as they have beers names that mention Pensauken and Maple Shade

Split a large bottle of the Goose Island Bourbon County Vanilla Stout the other day, probably in my top-3 of all-time, just ridiculous.

Yeah apparently they added rye and then also aged it in rye barrels this time. Friend who'd had the 2010 variant said it was too sweet back then (though I think most would disagree), but this one was great, you had really nice vanilla flavor but then a clean finish, so you didn't have sickly sweetness lingering or anything.

Gearing up for summer beer season, tried Lake House Lager from Capital Brewery last night, was pretty decent, basic lager with some malty hints, nothing to write home about but pretty drinkable.

No they had them at Bobby Rays in Pennsauken. The one called The Shader was a decent IPA.

Nothing really outstanding in the way of beer, although their pumpkin beer seemed to be a crowd pleaser. I went with a few friends and stuck to their APA, solid beer.

Nice ambiance though, cool place to chill and grab a couple beers. Food selection is limited, but good.

By the way, Grapefruit Sculpin is not far behind Jai-Alai.

Also been drinking NJ Beer Company's LBI IPA which is pretty fantastic as well.

I've discovered ginger shandies. Great summer beer cocktail. 1 lemon juice, ginger simple syrup as desired, basically any mild beer, but witbier is preferable.

Cheap: Molsen Canadan

Regular: Seasonal Sam Adams.

That's just "go to" beers. That's more of a backup. It's rare that I don't find a new beer I'm in the mood to try.

All Day IPA. It's one of the cheaper beers you can get, usually around $12-$13 for a 15 pack. And it is really good. Founders doenst really make a bad beer.

I actually try real hard to avoid a staple at home. Sam seasonal is always a good draft option, though.

I would rather drink just about anything than Canadian. And that's not like a shot at drinking mass market beer or anything. I drink Coors and Bud and stuff, but Goddamn is Canadian awful. It hurts my heart that it has my country's name on it to represent us with that swill.

There's no way Coors can be rated above Molson (which I don't drink). Coors tastes like water lightly flavored with jock strap drippings.

Is Canadian what everyone is referring to when they say "Molson"?

Canadian tastes like moose piss to me. Can't stand it.

Canadian is the most common molson variant that I see being drank (drunk? Drinken?) around these parts. I'd certainly put it above bud and coors

I've never had it in the States, so maybe it tastes different? I know I've had that experience with the bigger names in Canada vs States(bud, coors, etc.).
