Awesome finds at Lucky’s Market and Northwest Wine & Spirits tonight!
I’d been talking to a coworker about Three Floyds earlier in the week— he’d never tried any, and I was (obnoxiously, I’m sure) singing their praises. This morning, he told me Lucky’s had Alpha King, and then we both proceeded to rave about how goddamn tasty it is. Naturally, I decided I needed to blow twenty bucks on some beer singles when I left work that day. Alpha’s the only one I’ve had, so I’m definitely looking forward to drinking my way through the six-pack— especially Founders Rubaeus, which I’ve heard is amazing.
I went to Northwest Wine & Spirits on recommendation of a bartender from Winking Lizard who told me I might be able to find Three Floyds Gumballhead there. That was a week ago, so I figured it was probably a long shot (it was), but I was pretty impressed with their craft selection. I’ve been looking for Clown Shoes Muffin Top for a while now, mostly because the name makes me laugh. It’s a Belgian-style Tripel IPA, and I have absolutely no idea what it’s going to taste like… but I’m absolutely pumped to try it.
I’ll keep you posted!

Three Floyds Robert the Bruce (Scotch Ale/Wee Heavy)
If the very attractive bartender at WL hadn’t pointed this out on the menu, I probably would’ve glanced right over it. I’d go out on a limb and say most craft beer enthusiasts in Ohio know just how difficult it is to get Three Floyds here (I have yet to figure out why), so I knew I had to give it a shot. The bartender said it was the best Scotch ale he’d ever had, and after one taste, I have to agree. Most of the ones I’ve had (Great Divide comes to mind) are missing something— they’re always a little cloying, and I almost always regret getting them. This one was insanely drinkable but still flavorful; light and full-bodied at the same time. Absolutely delicious.
And props on the bartender’s pour. Look at that gorgeous head!
To the brewers at Three Floyds: if you’re reading this, please start distributing to the Columbus market. I need more of this beer in my life.
