Greetings! I've recently moved to Austin from Raleigh, NC where I developed a love for decadent craft brews. I'm excited to share and learn from other beer enthusiasts! Cheers!

Do you remember the first Craft Beer you had, what was it?

Haha... good question. It was the first week I lived in Raleigh, NC. I was at the Flying Saucer there and the lady next to me suggested I get a local coffee stout from Big Boss Brewery called Aces and Eights. I thought it was terrible at the time, but last time I had it, I found it delectable!

What is your favorite style of beer(Stout,IPA,Belgian Quad,etc)?

I usually prefer a full bodied Imperial Stout, but Porters and Brown Ales rank highly on my list. I'll drink anything that's complex and expertly crafted.

What are your 3 favorite Beers?

This changes periodically since there are so many amazing beers in the world but currently I love Great Divide's Espresso Oak Aged Yeti Imperial Stout, Lonerider's Sweet Josie (NC beer), and New Belgium's Cocoa Mole.

What are your 3 favorite Breweries?

For their overall variety and excellence in brewing such a variety, I really enjoy Avery, New Belgium, and Stone breweries.

What are your favorite bars and/or brewpubs?

I've only lived in Austin for 3 weeks, but so far I really like Opal Divine's, Ginger Man, and Banger's.

    Hi Maui, thanks for joining! You're right, it's much easier to learn from another person than it is from a book. I hope you can join us for a meetup soon!

    Hey we live sort of near each other. Seems like most other folks on this forum live a lot further away. I'm looking for some sanity in southern Wake County. If you want to hang out, let me know. :)
