The commercial beer selection in Missouri is really bad outside of St. Louis and KC. Like, really awful. Sam Adams awful.I'm pretty lucky in that there are plenty of liquor stores with a great craft beer selection around me. My only problem is that the freshness level is dubious at most of them. I've pretty much given up on IPA's from a lot of them. It's nice to find 3-year old barleywines on the shelf. It's not so nice to find 3-year old hefe's or DIPA's. I happened upon a bottle of Avery Maharaja the other day that I really wanted to grab, but my spidey sense went off and told me it would be a big waste of money. Went home with some gueuze instead.
