I challenge everyone who has posted in this thread to travel to western Colorado and try the brews at "Rockslide Brewery." I can guarantee you that it will top your "never again" list. The funny part is that for decade(s) it was our only brewpub. Now locals think that beer is supposed to taste like that. Thank god for homebrew and one newer brewpub that makes very solid though non adventurous brews.Well at least the drive from Denver will be pretty. That stretch of I-70 has to be the most scenic piece of Interstate system.
There's a new Chicago brewery that I've had exactly one beer from. It was an IPA that was overly sweet and astringent to the point of undrinkable. I want to support new breweries but I'm hesitant to try anything else.
