    Drink locally!
    Ditto! I can still remember my first Summit EPA like it was yesterday, only it was 1999, which makes me feel really old.

    I had the pleasure of sampling their wares about a year ago while attending a cousin's wedding at the "Happy Gnome" in Saint Paul. Had the EPA - good stuff. Had the Oatmeal Stout:

    Great call. I've been a fan of the beer since they had a brewery on University and I'd go there for tours. I am something of a beer common sewer, having sampled the local product across the country. I can say Summit has the best line-up of offerings east of the Rockies. The only weakness is the IPA, which does not have enough Cascade hops for my taste. But they now have Saga, a hoppier IPA. Between that, the EPA and the Oatmeal Stout, I have no need to drink anything else.

    I'm going to chalk this up to auto-correct hilarity.... Brilliant.

    I wish I could get Summit here. I had some in my fridge often when I lived in the cities.

    I, for one, am looking forward to the Mai Bock. My personal indicator that spring is here.

    Glad you like the portfolio at large. Our IPA is a British-style IPA which is meant to come across more earthy and "noble" than in-your-face hoppy American counterparts. IPA intentionally has no Cascade (or any American) hops in there at all, rather the more famous European varieties of Northern Brewer, East Kent Golding and Target. This highlights the earthy, somewhat grassy hops character over the massive hop-bomb American IPAs like Saga IPA, which we LOVE as well!

    Funny, IPA is my favorite Summit beer. I need to take a tour sometime. Glad to have you.
    Do or do not. There is no try.

    The IPA was my beer for 15 years. I rejoiced when it moved from a seasonal selection to a regular offering. But then I started sampling other IPAs, like Bell's Two Hearted or the the Flying Dog Snake Dog and Raging Bitch, and I stopped buying blue label in favor of the more "in-your-face" hop bombs. That's why I'm so pleased with Saga, which is all the hops I need, but smoother and more enjoyable than other hop bombs.

    Hooray for Summit! An appropriate partner for Twins Daily. I am a big-time consumer of Minnesota brewed adult beverages. I will buy a six pack of Saga tonight to celebrate the union.
