  6. In the past month I've had my first:

    Flower Power
    Plead the Fifth
    Alchemy Hour
    Heady Topper
    Ground Break Saison

    Loved them all and currently have a six pack of Flower Power and two 4 packs of Plead residing in my closet. Alchemy Hour I drank on tap all night last night when I finally got to my first bar in, like, three months my life has been so boring.
  7. WOW really?? thats awesome! I wonder how much it will cost.

    I just got a 6-pack of Velvet Merlin and it is great. I'm assuming he means the BA version won't be available again.
  10. It will cost the same as parabola and sucaba i believe. That seems the price point for those beers.
  11. Velvet Merkin is the ba velvet merlin. It was only available at the tasting room or barrelworks before this year. I will be going to the release as i cant make it to the parabola one coming this weekend.

    On a side note, just googled Merkin and figured out that wasn't a typo..

    great lakes- alchemy hour(mosaic hops add a distinct taste to this one)
    pipeworks-something hoppy this way comes(just scored a fresh bottle friday and i can't wait)
    alesmith-speedway stout(has to be 1 of the top 5 non-ba coffee stouts)
    lagunitas imperial stout(1 of the better imperials i have tried at a $4.50 a bomber price point)
    oso's lupilin maximus(gotta have the hop cone in it though
    and i know you only asked for 5 but i have to throw in new glarus raspberry tart,might have to cross the border and try and find some more. it's funny because i have tried all these beers in the last three months, if i went out a year my list would probably quintuple. it has been a great year for beer in chi-town.

    strange becuase i have seen the gf barleywine on the shelves around here for $4.50 to $5, now the palette wrecker i thought was fubar because that was over $9 a bomber and you could get a 4-pack for $14

    Head Hunter wow!

    Heady Topper have had my hands on a lot , but not enough

    Enjoy by 4-1 was great ! 4-20 was good also, just not the same profile.

    Pliny the Elder I can't get enough. Amazing how it still stands tall against all the new Ipa class members.

    Lagunitas Sucks Hbc 366 an expermental hop strain that is an un filtered brewery only exclusive. Omg! Is it good.
