    Wow, they are shipping overseas and I can't find it on the east coast of the U.S. ?!
    Crazy!

    Yeah, a lot of the IPAs are too hoppy for me, and I wouldn't mind but Imperial IPA isn't the worst of them. Do you get Sam Adams? Brooklyn Lager? Moosehead?

    I like a couple of Sam's offerings, but not a huge fan, and haven't drank any Moosehead in a good bit.
    I really prefer the craft breweries that are local (or at least regional), for the most part.

    My most common grabs are from Dogfish Head and I always have some Yuengling on-hand.....also like Dundee's Honey Brown Ale fairly well.
    There are about 25-30 craft breweries close by, plus one of the local pubs has over 30 selections on-tap, so I really don't mess around with larger company's offerings very much.
    (In fact, my local brewmeister----- who carries well over 200 varieties of beer in his little establishment----- is the one who turned me on to some of the Dogfish Head brews, which I would likely have never tried if he didn't tell me to)

    I guess that I am a picky fucker, lol

    Dogfish Head is a really good brewery all right. Do you get any of the fine tipples from across the pond over there? Probably not though as the variety of beer in the States is awesome. It would be the same as Belgians importing beer, or chocolate.. or waffles :D

    I sure wish I did, but unfortunately not. At least not that I have ever found.
    I have been waiting for decades for someone to start importing the German beers I fell in love with........no dice

    I know that I have seen New Belgium's Abbey Belgian-Style Ale, but haven't yet tried it.
    Also would like to try Schlafly's Grand Cru if I ever run up on it
