Yeah, I’m disappointed by the 7-Eleven selection this year too.
On the plus side, the Carrefour in Danshui (and presumably other branches?) is selling Saranac IPA and Pale Ale for 55NTD a bottle - I’d never heard of the brewery before, but looking at the bottle I guess they’re a microbrewery based in Utica, New York. Decent stuff if what you like is the North American style of pale ales and IPAs - which, happily for me, is exactly what I like.[/quote]
Yeah, Carrefour also had Saranac around the New Year and I tried it then - very pleasantly surprised. Back then they only had the Pale Ale and the Amber Lager. I’m not much of a lager fan but the Pale Ale was great. So last week when I saw Carrefour’s current selection of Saranac I went a bit nuts Over a couple dozen now waiting to be drunk. Their Black Forest, IPA, Pale Ale - all very good stuff and at a good price.
