How much was the cherry rye?
The beers I'd shipped to myself from my road trip westward came in today. Needless to say, I'm very excited to start drinking them!
Small - but last two times TG came to town....
Kulshan RIS, Vietnamesse SS, Florence, Edward, Harlan, Vera Mae and a 4 pack of Heady. It was a pretty good day for beer.
They look so pretty together. Last year there were 2 batches of Zhukov. The first batch had a portion that under attenuated. That small amount became Cafe Americano. Once it was barrel aged they changed the name to Caffe Americana. Anyhow, I digress. Because of the re-purposing of the first batch they choose to brew a second batch. Although I'm not 100% sure, I do believe I sent you a second batch bottle. Cheers!
I just got home from a 3,000 mile road trip across the Northwest and managed to find some incredible beer. I also was able to complete an IP trade in Seattle with one of the coolest BAs I have ever met - @silkyjaguar
The below images may be unsettling to some viewers....
Not pictured is an 8pk of Kettlehouse Cold Smoke, a 6pk of Fremont Summer Ale, a 6pk of Hell or High Watermelon, a 4pk of 3-Way IPA, several growlers, and a few other odds and ends.
Picked up these in my shop

Ha! Great trading with you, @KRG ! I too made a little visit to New England this week:
How often do you travel between Madrid and California?
Left New Jersey at 4:30am yesterday morning, arrived at Hill Farmstead at 10:30am, finding ourselves 3rd on line. Not only were they mad efficient yesterday, but let us in early (11:45am) and began serving tastings and filling growlers. We got folks in line to help us out with bottle purchases, and then HF let us fill more than 3 growlers each! Done by 12:30pm, crazy fast. Brilliant lunch at Parker Pie, domed a 2010 sticker Lou Pepe Gueuze with our Green Mountain pizza, then boogied on down to Tree House to load up and head home.
78 bottles/growlers of beer
17 total hours in a car or on line

Unfortunately Julius kicked before I was able to get there. I will be going back there more often.
Went to Paris only to find out that both beer stores mentioned on Beer Advocate were closed for August vacation and others didn't have a good Belgian selection because the beer distributors have also been away on August vacation.
Still managed (after several phone calls) to clean out one store with what little stock they had. Decided to fill the luggage with wine instead.
Small but happy haul - Other Half barrel-aged imperial stout.
