    (Figure there's at least merit to this thread existing)

    Can't speak for Dave, but I will be working, and there is reason to believe Dave won't necessarily have to drive all the way to Durham that day for similar options.

    Hopefully we can talk about Hopfly...Rocky Mount is Triangle adjacent.

    So the rumor is that casita is distributing Hill Farmstead to NC starting Friday? Is that why I saw some bottles of Arctic Saison on the shelves the other day?

    Not full distro...just a one time drop. Arctic Saison is brewed at Anchorage, not Hill.

    Ah, I don't recall having seen anchorage beers around before.

    Hi.

    Can I also get some food truck rec’s in this thread. Preference to authentic tacos.

    Nothing here is authentic...

    Just come down to the casa for a share. My girl will whip up some shit...her salsa verde is fantastic. We don’t do meat, but ceviche can definitely happen.

    Agree with this. Food at Dave's is always solid.

    They don't sell super well but there are some bottles of whiteout wit (a super underrated beer) on some shelves around downtown Raleigh bottle shops at least. Drops are few and far between though, I don't think their distributor sells them very quickly.

    We can talk about Hopfly - best IPAs east of Charlotte are made there IMO

    You guys like Hopfly more than New Anthem?

    I do… but I think they're different. Hopfly stuff in general is a lot cleaner IMO. Much lighter body, more of a focus on IPAs than doubles. Admittedly, I've gotten to drink a lot more hopfly than New Anthem, and I tend to prefer the lighter stuff in that style, but that's why I prefer hopfly. I also just absolutely love beach beer, especially for $13/4pk and reliable availability, much more than rushing out the door for New Anthem cans.

    I'm jaded and lazy, I guess is what I'm saying.

    I’d be honored. I’ll put something together.

    Hopfly and New Anthem are on the same level. Also very curious about R&D...have loved the modern west coast IPA and Mexican Lager in cans. Their hazy shit has been on draft around town and I’ve really enjoyed it.

    I probably missed them all already, but are there any good Oktoberfest events in the triangle?

    The best one, though small, is at Capital Club. I'll likely be there tomorrow evening - it'll be all marzens and festbeers on tap, and they do a more traditional German food menu with it. White street does a fun one, not sure when it is this year, but lots of pilot batch German beers. I'm sure there are more but those are the two I like enough to seek out.
