Their pale ale is better.

It appears that other places also have some of this heritage stuff. And are also old. Like, really old.”

This year they are offering something called extra strong bear beer, that French beer that they always offer, and some other beer from Italy. What will it take to bring the Hawaiian beers back? At least they have the Gordon Biersch beers.

Shieeeeet. There just ain't no pleasing some folk.

I thought it was a bit poor myself this year. Gordon 'blersch', too many wheat beers, too many strong canned beers but only one Belgian type beer. Could be better.

Bear beer is not a generic beer BTW ...

I am not saying it was generic. I am saying the boring design on the can made it look generic.
