Just a quick perusal shows that Charleston Beer Exchange has Allagash Odyssey, which is 10.4% ABV.

Thanks phinz. But alcohol content is not the reason I drink beer. I rarely drink craft beers. Thanks for the clarification/correction.
Bud Light suits me just fine.

I don't drink it for alcohol content either and never implied that you did. I was just clarifying that your statement was incorrect regarding available ABV. SC has one of the top bottle shops in the world. Charleston Beer Exchange was voted number four in the United States this year, 2nd in the world in 2011 and top in the United States in 2012, and a lot of what they carry is above 8%.

I drink beer for flavor and sometimes just for adventure. I've tried some weird ones over the years. It so happens that sometimes my preferred beers have a high ABV. Oftentimes it's the opposite. Anybody who drinks just because of the ABV is a fool.

Okay got it. I stand corrected. You are right and I am wrong. Mistaken is a better more appropriate word.

Are these beers (Charleston Beer Exchange) available in the Upstate of SC? I have never seen them and we are 250 miles from Charleston.
I also will try any beer. Doesn't matter where or who made it. If its something I have never had, I will order it. Try it out.

"Phinz" makes me think of my favorite team.

They should be. If Charleston Beer Exchange and Greenville Beer Exchange can get them, I would imagine any beer sales location in SC can get them. Spartanburg has a shop called Oasis that carries a lot of different beers. Asheville, if you don't mind running across the border, has Bruisin' Ales. They have a stellar selection of beers. There's the Growler Station in Greenville. Lots of places.

I like beer exploration too. The first thing I look for on a menu or in a bar is something I haven't tried. That's part of the fun of the beer world. There's so much out there right now it's impossible to keep up, so I just keep trying new things.

So whats up with your user name? "phinz"

I'm a notorious Parrothead and John D. MacDonald fan.

I think he is paying homage to a Buffet song. Kinda like what I told my female scuba students when they asked about sharks on openwater dives. "Honey, there are more sharks on this boat than you will ever see in the water!"

I am still not exactly sure. I know what a "Parrot Head" is and i am familiar with the singer/songwriter.
But "phinz" other than the shark fin on "Land Shark" beers logo, I was thinking he might be a "Fin" fan?
Like I am.

And if I am reading his location correctly, he is positioned to be a Fin Fan!!!!

Not a Dolphins fan. Actually not really a sports fan at all.

Jimmy Buffett and Tom Corcoran wrote a song called Fins.

Travis McGee lived at Slip F-18, Bahia Mar Marina, in John D. MacDonald's books. The slip itself has never existed, but the marina does.
