Oh, How Good We Have It

June 24th, 2009 · 2 Comments · General Beer News

Sometimes, it is easy to forget just how lucky we have it here in Seattle. Posts like this one from the Beeradvocate.com forums remind me of why Seattle is one of the best beer cities in the US:

I now worship the foundation Bottleworks was built on. As I staggered, eyes glazed, drooling at the insane selection of beers at this magnificent Mecca of beerdom, I wept, quietly, at the wonders I beheld. Without further adue, the haul:

Great Divide 15th Anny Oaked DIPA
Allagash Odyssey
Brassiere de Rocs Brune
De Dolle Oerbier Reserva 2005 (Bottled 2006)
Rogue Old Crustacean 1998
Girardin 1884 Black Label Gueuze 2004

And last, but certainly not least:

Russian River Deviation (you read right)

All this while sipping New Belgium Bottleworks X wild ale.

I cannot say any more. The haul speaks for itself. Bottleworks, you have my soul. And I like it.

That post is from a user by the name of “0110×011” on Beeradvocate who lives in California. I read the post while sipping on a glass of Firestone Walker Union Jack IPA (from CA)…which makes reading it even sweeter for some reason.

    Love it…I grew up down in California, Firestone was the brewery that got me interested in beer, then I moved up here for school, you can see why I never left…

    i’m from Washington. thanks to the craft brews from my homestate, i never went through the “macro-swill” phase during college. i’ve since moved to california. beer here sucks. they come up with something middle of the road and they throw a parade in its’ honor. the MOST highly regarded beer bar in ALL of LA would be considered below the average in the Puget Sound area. and as far as really good places just to find a good selection of beers to take home…(sigh) i don’t want to talk about it.
