Trader Joe's Doppelbock for 2.99!
I was disappointed by the winter seasonal doppelbock offered up by Trader Joe's under the "Josephs Brau" label (contract brewed by Gordon Biersch). Knowing it was brewed by Gordon Biersch, I expected the same quality but came away disappointed. But that was when it was sold for $5.99 per 6-pack. Last week, I guess they were trying to move excess inventory, and it was going for $2.99! Apparently, I wasn't the only one unimpressed. So at $5.99, I'll pass, but at $2.99? Oh yeah, baby! I see more decent but not that great doppelbock in my future.
