    Which brewpub in NH? I am in Southern NH and am always looking for a good, new (to me) brewpub.

    look into brew-in-a-bag. It's a pretty inexpensive way to step up to all grain, which can produce much better beer.

    You may want to check into some of these options;
    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...-as-good-as-th
    http://growltap.com/

    For beer picks, Yazoo's Hefeweizen (Nashville, TN) is probably the best Hef I've tasted.
    Flying Dog (Frederick, MD) makes a pretty great coffee stout (Kujo) along with several, let's call them, interesting options. Those include an Oyster flavored beer and Old Bay flavored beer; I cannot recommend a 6-pack of either, but trying one or two will be an experience.

    Are you guys seeing a surge in IPAs in your part of the world? IPAs with lots of hops are all the rage here. And as someone who is not a fan of hops, it can be a challenge finding a good drink. Now that winter is approaching (at least in my part of the world) there will be some more porters and stouts coming out - thankfully! Those my beers. The darker, the better.

    Yup, the bitter hop with more hops and hops on top of hops (aka Dogfishead) is rampant. But hops don't always equal bitter. I'm a hefie, german based beer fan with the right stout, red ales, etc. But there are IPAs that are more on the fruity smell/side I like (Jai Alai) (http://cigarcitybrewing.com/beer/jai-alai-ipa/).

    I recently got my dad a customized drinktanks double-wall insulated stainless growler as a retirement gift. It was awesome! They make a growler saver/CO2 tap-cap for it as well, (which I didnt get him). Made me wish I had one!

    I haven't made it out to 7th Settlement yet, but I have heard good things about it.

    It's a trend. Everyone wants to be "extreme". I think it will pass or at least subside some although beer nerds like their hops! I think it's also an easy way to try and differentiate from the crowd if it's a new brewery, when in reality they are just following the herd. Give me an expertly made "mild" beer, like an Oktoberfest or a brown any day over those paint thinners people are calling IPAs. Although I won't lie, I love me some hops.
