  1. From "Casey Seymour" :

    Thanks for the great review. I’ve been in love with Toppling Goliath ever since I tried Golden Nugget and Pseudo Sue. I really appreciate the balance I’ve experienced in their beers. Nice hop flavors without being overly bitter.

  2. From "Seth" :

    Love TG brews! Another cool bottle opener. I would like to know where you got this one. I searched the site but am unable to find it. Thanks in advance!

  3. From "Seth" :

    I think I found the bottle opener.. a GrOpener

  4. From "Russ Perry Jr" :

    Toppling Goliath is now distributed in Wisconsin, but I haven’t managed to find time to look for it yet. I hear the Pseudo Sue usually comes in with a bottle limit anyway, so it’ll probably require good timing on my part to find that particular one anyway. Oh well; some day!
