I bought one of these Idaho 7s, and it was OK. It had a young date, but seemed to not be as fresh as other SN high hopped products - so perhaps it was shipped or sat warm during distribution.

I'd check it out again if I got the chance.

Only allowing warm beer sales I'm told is supposed to lower the frequency of drinking and driving! If you think people buy cold beer to drink in the car on the way home, I guess it lowers the desirability of that but really can't serve any other purpose but to fill the wallets of state licensed liquor stores

I remember one of the bright bulbs in the Utah legislature proposed banning selling singles at gas stations to combat drunk driving. Six-packs would have been a-ok, though :o
It's such a fine line between stupid and clever.

FWIW, I bought cold beer on the way home, and managed to get all the way home without drinking it   ;D
