My Favs on Thursday | Southern Tier

Sep 4, 2014

My FAVS on Thursdays is a weekly linkup with my girls Nicole and Meghan.  Play along and share with us your favorite thing(s) of the week!

Bennett and I are self-proclaimed “beer snobs”…but I know that we totally have room to grow in our beer knowledge to actually hold that title.  West Virginia has bizarre laws that makes it hard for smaller craft beer companies to be able to distribute across the state line, so we don’t have the amazing options for the craft culture that we would like to have.

What I’m saying is: We are no Denver, Colorado here in Wheeling.  BUT…we do the best we can and work with what we’ve got.  Southern Tier is one of the companies that has finally been able to break into the market in this area a little more and I’m always doing a happy dance about that.  I basically love every beer I’ve had from them and practically lived off of LIVE and Farmers Tan this summer.

But of course, it’s fall now.  And my FAVORITE ones are chock full of pumpkin and spices.  And are delicious.  #sorrynotsorry

If I had to pick one pumpkin beer to drink all fall long, it would be Warlock.  Hands down.  In the cooler months, I am all about the darker beers and this imperial stout hits the nail on the head.  It’s awesome and so full of flavor.

What do you think?  Have you tried either of these?

    Yummay! I'm not one much for flavored beers, but I do love a good craft beer.

  2. BrittRigdon

    I love craft beers! I wish they had Dogfish Head in Iowa. I will have to try to find this Southern Tier, looks MEAN!

  3. Katy McKinley

    I like anything that has a good bite and taste to it. Generally I stick with the standard IPAs and Porters but once in a while…something with a seasonal flavoring super hits the spot.

  4. Katy McKinley

    I would kill for Dogfish Head in Wheeling. We struggle to get anything here and usually have to drive into Pennsylvania to get the good stuff. It's rough when you can't even bring yourself to taste Budweiser/Coors/Miller. The things you'll do for good booze, haha.

    If you ever wanna come visit with Bobby and Eric, I'll take you to the STBC!!! It's beautiful. Just sayin'

  6. Katy McKinley

    I always want to go and visit Bobby & Eric! And I remember Bobby saying something about Southern Tier being from his home. It's extra motivation to go see them (and meet you!!)

    New York is gorgeous in October 😉
