You're kidding, right? ReUnion? If you aren't the owner this has to be a joke.
Crazy to hear this. I think the ReUnion beers are simply average... nothing better than even BG Arms Race. Tastebuds are strange things.No joke. If I had to pick between BG or Reunion, it’s Reunion every time. I haven’t had anything at Big Grove that compares to tank puncher or juice factory. Damn good beers.
If I had to choose between a trip to TG or Pulpit Rock, it’s Pulpit Rock every time and I love most TG beers.
If it spells b e e r on the can, I will drink it.
Big fan of Fire Skulls & Money from TG.
Then again - as with sex and pizza - it’s all pretty acceptable.
i haven’t tried that yet, but it’s going on my listI really liked their xHops Gold - very inexpensive when about $6-7 a bottle, and quite tasty. Haven't seen that in a while (since they bottled), but I always picked up a few of those cheapies when I found them on shelves.

Love Hopsmack as well. Speaking of small breweries we visited Potosi this summer and it was well worth the trip - drink a lot of their tangerine ale in the summer and wanted to make sure their facilities were clean.I haven't seen it on my last few trips back (when they still were bottling the bombers of stuff). There were several flavors of xHops: Gold, Teal, Maroon, Pink. The guys at John's Grocery said "don't bother with the others". Those were $6-7 22 oz bottles when all the other stuff was $10+, so if they do cans of it, those might still be around that same price-point, and a $7-8 4pk of that would be well worth it.
Other one I liked that was under the radar was the Thresher wheat beer (had a shark on the label). That was also priced lower, but quite tasty.
TG does have some average/mediocre stuff: Rover Truck stout (very average), Dorothy's isn't all that great, Golden Nugget (pretty average).
Also liked Hopsmack! a lot, but haven't seen much of that, either.
I had a friend get a bottle of the Assassin stout, and that stuff was thick like motor oil, but damn tasty - something to sip on from a smaller glass, as it was a heavy beer to drink in quantity. I'd love to get my hands on another one of their good stouts, but seems most of those are special event stuff.
