Commercial Beer Reviews / Re: Aldi's Third Street Brewhouse IPA "Hop Lift"

In opposition to some above posts,

Yes infact most Aldi, Costoco, Trader Joes beers are regional contracts.

Here in Wisconsin most contracts are brewed by Point Brewry in Stevens Point, or (yuck) by Minhas in Monroe WI. Occasionally decent contract joints get these gigs, I think in this case you got a dud.

I often find Stevens point contract to be palatable when the style is neutral (Amber, helles, Extra pale)

But in at least one case I know that Trader Joe's does good deals with boutique contractors. Tintinn and other campanology beers are actually decent and priced low to compete with Minhas (mission st) beers.

ALways check the location of the brewery on these no-name brands, and know your local contractors. It is worth your time!

Hey AHA friends,

Long time AHA and BA member here, just now realizing I should post about me little podcast.

Like Fun!

Like Fun is a Madison-Wisconsin Centric, bi-monthly beer-comedy podcast. What does that mean?
We do a beer review every other week, it's usually a Madison (Dane Co.) beer, sometimes its a Wisconsin area beer, failing that, its a Midwestern beer. We also talk about homebrewing, music, beer politics, and pop culture.

We are supported by several Midwestern bluegrass bands, and some LHBShops and Local Breweries. These associations are loose and unpaid to prevent bias in our reviews as we strive to provide a fun and informative podcast experience.

We are just getting into the Homebrew publishing sector, so now is a good time for BA/AHA folks to start listening. If we can learn a tad more about web-publishing, hopefully we can provide information on both homebrew and commercial brew in the southern WI area.

Check us out as or subsrcibe and review us on itunes here

Best regards, best brews,
Josh and Greg
Like Fun!
