    This is my Superbowl Weekend line-up, which is overkill for a 2-1/2 day period of time, but hey, if it stretches into some weekday drinking, so what, right?

    Old ales, barleywines, and a wee heavy: Barrel Aged Bigfoot, Vintage Ale, Thomas Hardy's Ale, Skull Splitter, and Uinta's Anniversary Ale

    Went to pick up my first HopSlam of the year.
    Dragged the "good luck" wife out with me on a hunch....


    I know if I was by myself, I would've come home with HopSlam ~ gotta love the wife!

    4 x 750ml Bottles of Cigar City & B. Nektar's Camp Braggot Ghost Stories

    It's CCB's and B. Nektar's newest collabo that just released tonight in the CCB Tap room.


    Ghost Stories is a Braggot (fermented from both barley and from honey) that was brewed with lager yeast, making it a truly unique... experience. The honey used for the mead portion is Meadowfoam, which is most notable for its huge marshmallow flavors. But we didn't stop there. We also added some chocolate, coconut, Chinese black smoked tea, and a touch of white oak as well.

    From our brewmaster Wayne: "The result is a black braggot with hints of smoke, marshmallow, chocolate, vanilla and macaroon that is exceptionally complex and rounded even though it is over 10% ABV. The overall intent is to emulate a Smores Braggot with slight smoky notes from being prepared over an open camp fire."

    ^ That sounds amazing.

    I wish I could throw ISOs for B. Nektar's stuff (and a bottle of pappy :() because they make some top notch meads.

    Don't want to be breaking the trade forums rules now.

    Well, no photo (it's just a plain growler bottle anyways), but...hit up our local Whole Foods, and bam...Terrapin Liquid Bliss sitting there on tap. Hallelujah, my day is made. There have been no bombers of it around me for quite a while now.

    Super Bowl Sunday beer has been found.
  30. So incredibly excited. This just landed today, after much drama.


    For the full story, read these:

    Can't say enough good things about goryshkewych. The guy received these by mistake, posted about it, sent them to me (I did PayPal him some cash) and he got these off to me right away with the incredible bonus of the BA Blackout Stout.

    With those two R&D beers (not from goryshkewych)... MISSION COMPLETE.


    Back three are all Sour Ale with Raspberry Tart, Belgian Red and Serendipity thrown in for dramatic effect.

    Gotta love it when you're beer guy looks out for you..

    Him "how many do you want? I'll give you whatever."
    Me "I don't want to be too greedy. I'll take four."
    Him "it's ok, I'm getting another case Monday. You sure that's all you want?"
    I was on my bike and riding 10 miles with this on my back was bad enough.
  36. hey guys!

    I got this in the mail last friday from a fellow BA user Usofar. No reason other than he's a really good guy:


    And I got into CT last night, and picked this little haul up:
