Well, it's true - the Red Porch has some great beers on tap, such as the Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA and Bell's Kalamazoo Stout. But I didn't see any good beers anywhere else but in the Red Porch. The Red Loft had the same old crap from last year, as did all the beer stands we saw on the main concourse.
Bell's had one let the Turtle have a sip. He went and drank the keg dry. They never replaced the keg
However, the Porch was having problems with their taps. I actually stood in a line for 10-12 minutes to get a refill (inspired by Blue's leadership in ferreting out alternatives) and by the time I got to the head of the line, only the Bell's tap was working.
The Red Porch was working fine last night. But the price per beer went up there from $7.50 to $8.50. The bartender wasn't surprised, given the demand so far. Even after just 2 games.Also, there are some good beers on the right field side on the first level. Wild Goose IPA, Fordham's Copperhead, and other good microbrews. It was in a Baseline Brews stand. Strange thing though - the left side of the stadium had an awful selection.Has anyone looked at the upper levels ?
Can I get cheapies and bring them into the Porch? Friends and family in 2 different sections means we are gonna try to hang in the porch. Or seat jump, judging by yesterday's attendance.
I know this is definitely not a lot of people's cup of tea (beer) but Pabst Blue Ribbon is quickly becoming a guilty pleasure of mine. Down here in Southeast NC, it is definitely the cheap beer of choice. Every bar in Wilmington sells PBR $1-$2.50 depending on where you go. I'm talking the Tall Boys too and Jesus, you pound a few of those and you're off to the races.Has to be in a can too. It adds to the white trashiness of it all.
I like their imprint, Jacob's Best. It sells in PA for like 75 cents a can, markedly cheaper than anything else.
Of the cheap beers, PBR is by far the best. Did a blind taste test once with bud light on tap and PBR on tap. PBR tasted like one of those fine craft things in comparison. I'll try it against some other macros and let you know the results

Have you ever tried a Brooklyn Lager ?
It's good, but it's a bit overrated as the "best beer in the world"
Best beer in the world is laughable. Too many variations.
Yeah well it won that award. Proud Belgian friends told me.On another note, the Leinenkugel's Home Run Ale in the Loft is tasty.
BLEECH !!! It tastes like an weak red ale that shows its true stripes - Miller Brewing Co.
Went to Gilly's Craft Beer shop (Rockville, near Twinbrook Metro) tonight, and as of tomorrow, they will have 120 and Troegs sunshine pils on tap as of tomorrow (plus all the usual bottled beers). And that place is a block from my office...booyah
