    I used to like mostly bourbon barrel aged stouts, Goose Island being at the top of the list. I also liked porters, reds and browns. But now I'm getting to like IPA's a whole lot better. Which is what my brother said would happen as I became a more and more experienced beer drinker. Maybe I also like IPA's more because we have some of the best ones in the World right here in Vermont, with Heady Topper, Double Sunshine, Double Dose, and now Second Fiddle. Only wish that I lived closer to these four great breweries
    (five if I include Hill Farmstead) so I could buy and trade it easier with you.

    Once or twice a year I host a beer tasting in my man cave the "Big O Pub". I have done brewery tastings of Goose Island, Hoppin' Frog, Three Floyd's, Maine Beer, Firestone Walker; and a small bottle high alcohol tasting with Avery's Mephistopheles and Samuels Ale, Dogfish 120 IPA, BrewDog Tokyo, Rochefort 10 and Westy XII.
    Some my tasting guests that I have invited are people I have never met before. But I say, Good beer makes good friends. Same with Golf.
