I drew the name for a gift exchange of a big beer drinker who used to live in Atlanta and is now in Chicago. I'd love to find him some good local beers. He moved about 3 years ago so maybe something that's come out since then? I am NOT a beer drinker so I'm totally lost
Here are some comments he's made to give you an idea of the types he likes:
"Stone's Levitation Ale. I'm a fan of IPA's."
"I've been drinking a bunch of shandies lately due to this hot summer (they're so gosh darn refreshing).
Leinie's Summer Shandy is surprisingly good, though I've been making my own with Seirra Mist and Two Brother's Ebel Weiss Beer and it's pretty good."
"Get any of the IPAs by Stone Brewing Company (from San Diego, naturally). Especially the Ruination IPA. Yummy.
Also note, if you live in Ohio or Colorado, Stone just released on 10/5/12 their Enjoy By 11/9/12 IPA. They released and sold out their September version in a day or two in Chicago, so good luck getting some. It was good."
It would be great if I could order and have them ship so I don't have to pack things up and cross my fingers that they end up in Chicago with beer still intact, but whatever it takes. There's a $25 limit but I always end up going over that
He's also managed to get the wife pregnant 4 times in 5 years so I'm throwing in several boxes of condoms - don't need any recs on those though
