Washington state, I officially love you!
Had the smutty 2 nights ago awesome. I got the barrel aged ESB by shipyard. But I missed barrel aged polaris actually drove by rising tide saturday and did not know kinda pissed. Happy drinking
I was in MA last Saturday so I wasn't able to go to Rising Tide for Polaris, but it's available in beer stores in Maine now.
Really site says 366 bottles? Was that just for release party? Will it be widely distributed? Ursa Minor was great, barrel aging must make it better. I will plan on picking a bottle up next time I am in Maine, if they last.
So, Kyle (antlerwrestler19) is an awesome guy. We did a couple trades earlier this year, it went really well. He decided to send a surprise box for the holidays or whatever, and look what dropped on my doorstep today:
I've only had one of those brews, the little prizewinning one on the left. THANK YOU KYLE!
(Just yesterday my Dad asked me if I had any "plain lagers" to drink. Why yes, yes Dad, now I do, have a PBR!)
two weeks until i graduate with my masters. some of these will be my grad present to myself combined with a couple other things dug up from the basement.
it's really good. definitely will be in my regular rotation. i visited the brewery a few weeks ago when i was in the area. nice little tasting room.
Shout out to that Glenlivet 12!
Not shown is x2 Anna/Heady/Blaugies la moneuse/founders imperial stout.
I typically alternate between Glenlivet and Glenfiddich 12... both very good and reasonably priced!

I picked up a bottle in Kittery,ME today. The bottle says it is a limited release of 960 so I am guessing you are right with party idea.

I have to say, that Cappuccino Stout from Lagunitas is mighty tasty. AND it just so happens to be a steal.
Shhhhhhh! Keep it quiet or everyone is gonna wanna move here!
First box, big thank you to gator79 for hooking me up with 2 bottles of one of my long time wants
Marshal Z x 2 (the pumpking and Wake 'n' Bake were extras)
Second (giant box), durb777.....I can't even put in to words how awesome this man is!!!
having a regular trading partner/good friend really is awesome. The only thing I said I wanted was that sixer of Founders Porter, and some Backwoods Bastard. Everything else was a total surprise, even the Black Tuesday!!!!! Nick you outdo yourself every time I get a box from you, thanks a million man.
Stopped in for one Head Hunter on my way home and this happened...
Wanna trade? Sweet haul!
Ummmm need help with that?
Grabbed this bad boys today. Also, that Dieu du Ciel looks like its marked as '08. They had a few more. Gonna try it tonight. If it's any good, going back for the rest.
Super awesome trade with ArchEnemyBrew! Trade was just for the two Abyss. He very generously hooked me up with some extras! Really looking forward to the 2011 Black Butte and Arctic Devil. Also, Fremont Abominable Ale!
