Completed some trades this week and bought some beer all in anticipation of a bottle share tomorrow. I'm probably only bringing two or three of these though because I'm a dick sometimes.
2nd haul of the week...
Don't hate me because I'm loved - went into one of my stores and the guy had 2 KBS put aside for me! And here I thought I was done for the year... Cheers!
Gotta love going into Upright and still being able to buy Blend Love and Blend Edmunds yesterday
Thanks Brett for your generosity and advocacy.
i've seen quite a few people posting the doom, can anyone give some feedback?? general impression?? how is it? just a really strong double trouble or what?? whatcha think bro don't leave us hanging
Surprise box from Tofuspeedstar. 32 oz growler of Live Oak Hefeweizen. Huge want. And another want in Luchador En Fuego. Plus a Sixpoint 3 Beans that I keep hearing good things about.
It's alright... I'm already putting one together for him... Mine will probably get to him faster than his..
I'll preface this by saying that I'm not really the biggest IPA guy these days...preferring maltier brews...and I've never tried Double Trouble...but Doom is one of the best beers I've ever tasted...subtle grapefruit...malt sweetness...vanilla from the barrel...not super hot...just gorgeous.
sweet jesus that sounds incredible, sign me up. gotta get my hands on that
I'm new here. How am I doing so far?
The ultimate IPA/PA mix-6 pack! I couldn't wait to start drinking them before I snapped the picture.
Fulton War & Peace
Ommegang Iron Throne
Sierra Nevada Barrel-Aged Bigfoot
Southern Tier Choklat
Schmaltz Funky Jewbelation
New Belgium La Folie
Founders KBS (I've had it on tap, but this is my first bottle)
If by "haul" you mean "in my belly".
My first time trying out this store I was recommended called Party Source (Syracuse, NY). They had some pretty awesome selections, but I felt like their inventory was running low. I'm from San Diego so I always like to find brews from San Diego all the way across the country. The Yuengling was bought elsewhere as my usual cheap beer that I just like to have around if I'm not feeling fancy enough.
Here I have:
6x Ballast Point Sculpin IPA (Delicious IPA. Definitely better than the Big Eye but probably not as good as Stone)
4x Big Eddy Russian Imperial Stout (Pleasantly surprised by this. Really really heavy on flavor and mouth. Definitely a special occasion type of brew.)
1x AleSmith Horny Devil (Haven't had it yet.)
1x Stone Smoked Porter (Had it on tap a while ago. All around a great porter with excellent coffee and roast taste.)
12x Yuengling Lager (It's cheap. It's not Bud Light.)
Beers of the World, the Saranac rep was offering free tastings of all 6 varieties. The variety 12 pack was on sale for $ 8.77, so I scooped one up.
Why are people liking this? This is the reason why a bunch of people don't have the opportunity to try KbS.. Because people like this guy buy up a shit ton and leave as little as he can for others. Bad beer karma.
Not beer karma at all, it's beer karma when all my regular trading partners have 8 kbs land on there doorstep each. Sorry you didn't get any I used no mules what so ever for this I ran around town for 3 days too 4 different store in witch some store got 8 cases. Not like I'm going to consume all of this, maybe keep 12-15 bottles for myself. My advise too you, find some awesome trade partner and hook him up, I got a "surprise" package from someone in Chicago who isn't even on BA including 8 kbs and a CW 15 cause I gave him a Black Tuesday on hunahpus day.
Be careful finding Sculpin outside SD, it's expensive and tends to be a little older than one would like it.
Great In Person trade with beefmental ... very thankful. He also gave me six different home brews to try! Awesome dude and awesome trade. Thanks!
From L to R:
Dogfish Head WW Stout
2012 Toppling Goliath Assassin BA Imp Stout
2012 Surly Darkness
2012 Toppling Goliath Assassin BA Imp Stout
Have never tried any of them, so very anxious!
Finally got the bc Coffee stout along with the Smokestack Coffee and a nice funkwerks glass
The citra ninja was great
It was pretty damn expensive, but so worth it. The enjoy by date isn't until mid June though.
So happy to find this today...
Cool story bro
How'd that '05 taste? Earliest I've seen
I wish my problem was finding beer past its release (by a short while) :/
