Crispin is owned by Miller Coors. For great ciders locally try LongDrop!
really BW? - deleting comments now?
@Grind Modern Burger - Disappointed in the recommend of the green bottle? How about disappointed in recommending the gross beer.
PPL - All 3 are garbage. Ya, I get it, not everyone loves IPA. GREAT! There are MANY local breweries that serve more than IPA. Go, EXPLORE beyond Albertson's or WINCO's beer cooler.
BOISE / IDAHO PEEPS - why buy gross EURO Beer? BUY LOCAL - BUY LOCAL EVERYTHING!
You put the state stickers on your car or wear those "Idaho State gun shooting the tree" stuff, right? Then BUY LOCAL beer, bread, eggs, CHEESE, etc. Go out of your way to put your money where your stickers represent.
Side Note - PBR is RUSSIAN BEER NOW - just sayin! (Oasis Beverages)
Very disappointed to see that you recommended two beers in green bottles. Never drink beer package in a green or clear bottle. Can or brown glass only. Green and clear glass allow in UV light which causes that sulfury smell referred to as "skunky".
Pilsner Urquell is a fine beer but enjoy it on draft or if you can find it from a can.
"This isn't my first rodeo."
Where are the local brews?
You need to add to this list Elysium Bitfrost. A very delicious brew for this winter season that is starting off. Pick one up and I know you will finish a 6 Pack
You didn't mention that all three of the bottled offerings smell strongly of sulfur otherwise known as "skunk". Never buy any beer in a green bottle be it beer or near beer. Green and clear bottles cause beer to spoil and stink ferociously of skunk.
Looks like 3 out of the 4 would be, should be Skunky!!!! Just saying....don't put beer in green bottles!!!!
This Petrus is not to be missed! So good...

Thanks for the suggestions. DuPont Avril Biere de Table sounds especially appealing. Find other summer beers at http://www.summerbeerreview.com.
Didn't care for the rye with this one.
Thanks for the review. I'll have to try one or ALL of these. My favorite beer in cans to date is Caldera IPA from Ashland, OR.
Where'd you pick these up?
Deschutes' "Hop in the Dark" is another great one that is available seasonally (now).
I must say that I have never quite been able to fathom how so many people seem to be fans of New Belgium Brewery's beers, especially the blah 'Flat Tire' that everyone and their dog seems to have on tap. The 'karma' of the beer world must be toying with me though, as I have tried some of the Lips of Faith series and have actually had to admit that some of THOSE are actually decent beers! I especially like the reviewed 'Vrienden.' That's 'friends' in Dutch (or Flemish) as it were. My gut tells me that the reason it is so good is because it is a collaboration with the awesome brewery out of Maine, Allagash. No matter, it is a damn fine Belgian-style on a par with many 'real' Belgians one could find in Brugge or Brussels!
Anchor is the best brew I've had this season, I agree. Better than all the hops goin' 'round this winter.
Widmer Hefeweizen always tasted bland when I used to order it at local pubs. That was confirmed last week when I purchased a 22 oz bottle for home consumption. Very disappointing. Try a real Hefeweizen and you'll see what it should taste like.
I rate it a 3 out of 10.
