Had this one last night. Bought it more for the novelty. After a few sips I was over it, but then I started eating Reese Buttercups with it, and the beer tasted great with it, lol. I doubt I would buy another one though.
I'm trying to keep track of destinations I've been to. I'm sure a few of you can beat me on this. I need to add some new stuff to this list soon also.

So a few months ago I picked up the Treehugger Ale by Terrapin. Their slogan "this beer will grow on you" is pretty accurate. I didn't like it at first, but it eventually warmed up to the style and think it's pretty decent.
I've been drinking 21st Amendment's Fire Side Chat at a neighborhood bar and loving it. While at the grocery store today, I noticed they had 2 six pack boxes of it in the middle of the aisle stacked in between all of the other regular brews. I'm so excited.
seriously? I mean by no means is it a bad beer, Ive never considered it one of the greater canadian beers tho. I may have to revisit this one.
First one I ever had was purchased in a gas station in Quebec( big deal because a.) I was 18 and b.) back home you.could only get beer at liquor stores) Me and 2 friends were driving back to Halifax from at Queens of the Stone Age show in Montreal.(12 hour drive) I remember sitting in the back seat listening to Tom Waits for the first time, as I skinned my index finger while trying to pop off the top with a lighter. Good memory.
This might just be the most Rhode Island thing to ever happen in Rhode Island. Short of a six pack of this next to a plate of stuffies in quahog shells.
For those of you who don't know about the Rhode Island stuff, Narragansett is the local cheap beer that is beloved in the area. Autocrat is the Rhode Island company which produces the syrup to make coffee milk - which is actually a thing in Rhode Island.
I may need to save a few cases of this for Quack Club next summer, for all the out of towners.
