Glad to finally be off work, 11 hour days suck! Hope everybody has an amazing Wednesday!
Napa Smith's Hopageddon. Its decent, but nothing earth shattering.
Cheers to Humpday!
What's the record for the most days in a row of the same person starting this thread?
really enjoying these North Carolina locals!
2009 Old Ruffian out of the cellar. One of the best beers to lay down and forget for a long, long time! Still have a 2010 that I think will see another 5 years in the cellar before it sees the light of day (aka my belly).
Picked up two six packs on the way to work and had to think of them all night. Bottled 1/10/13 which means almost 3 weeks old. I hope I can still taste some hops.
we should start a night shift thread
Smooth day at work last night...Can you say 7 days off? I can...
It's 830 and I am sitting in biology, so obviously I am not drinking this now, but seems like a good time to post my pics from Perennial last Friday night.
BA Abraxas I was informed that I got the second to last one of these. Too bad I missed the bottles because this was heavenly.
Vermillion- their barley wine with which I was very impressed.
Finally, Aria, their new flagship and a nice little Belgian. Overall; Yayy Perennial!
Bought from a Swedish government monopoly store . It's like a carbonated hop tea sitting at 0,5% abv. It takes a few sips to get used to the light body but the hops certainly deliver and offer a pleasant citrusy punch that could match that of an IPA (though with a moderate bitterness at 45IBU).
Only tried their Event Horizon, but I thought it was delicious.
I had to get a slice of bread and some water to cleanse my palate from the Nanny State since I couldn't pick up any hops in this one. After a while the tongue was re-calibrated and I could appreciate the subtle but pleasant hops of this beer. This was one of the first American craft beers I had a couple years back once I started to ventue off on a more regular basis into the world of craft beers and I've had it I guess about a handful of times since. A truly well-made beer, although it is perhaps a victim of people becoming accustomed to IPAs as the basic beer-style to judge all others against.
At work drinking a coffee now, but I'm scheduled to have two shipments arrive at my house tonight. They will include Heady Topper, Double Jack, and Flower Power.... I'm not gonna know what to drink first!!
It's an easy way to get likes. Stockpile a bunch of beer pictures and upload them when you get to work the next day. "just off work"
If someone's actually concerned about the number of BA "likes" they have..... Well, that's just sad. This isn't reddit lol.
You know, I am kinda glad this thread starts early - I just keep it open on my secondary monitor and see all this great stuff (ok...a little jealous about the beer, but I at least can listen to good music in my laboratory)
The menu is breakfast for dinner tonight - a lurking Breckenridge Oatmeal Stout (I actually think it tried to hide), scrambled eggs with whatever we can find, and watching the Celtics adjust to life with no point guard...any one could turn out poorly...
Do them all side-by-side, Heady will probably take the cake, there are only a few Double IPA's in Heady's league!!
Daisy Cutter pale.
But the karma?!?
We should really start being concerned though... I mean, it seems like the more 'likes' a person has the more awesome they are, amirite?
Yeeeeeeah, maybe in most cases. But outliers surly exist!
Haha, this is an excellent idea, although I have to work early the next morning so I wasn't planning on drinking too much.... Guess that just means I'll have to start drinking as soon as I get home today, right?
Sierra Nevada Ruthless Rye
Tough day at work so this is my lunch. Shhhhhh....don't tell the boss.
Seriously, tell them to start dishing to Michigan. I'm tired of not being able to try their beers.
I'll convince them to distrib in MI if you can convince Kuhnhenn to distrib in MN.
I'll see what I can do.
First I have to convince them to start bottling more shit.
Same great combo! I can't decide if I want to keep mixing these together or just drink them separately.
No beer again today. I was asleep all day yesterday and out of bed today but still under the weather. Tea has no hops.
I did score a pair of Phillies opening day tickets today with the pre sale. 65 days to go. I love baseball.
I have the same problem, although I don't enjoy the Moo-Hoo alone as much. 8-pack of WnB and 4-pack Moo-Hoo is how I buy these. Cheers, nice glass!
I want to know your overall thoughts of Perennials Cellar Series? I have the Abraxas sitting at my beer store and have been putting off buying it due to its high price tag. I hear its a beer that keeps on giving. Thoughts?
Now settled in as a second shift employee, days off are wonderful when you can sit back and have a spectacular brew over lunch. Also excited to see my #1 Wolverines take on Northwestern at home tonight! First one of these tasties I am cracking and I gotta say, this is right in contention with both KBS and BBPt5Th for me. Spectacular! Go Blue!
Great beer and great music makes a great day. 73 degrees outside with a massive band of storms coming this way. Too bad I gotta go to work in an hour!
Winter storms are so awesome! We just had some huge thunderstorms the other night while having about a foot and a half of snow on the ground. Enjoy the beer!
I keep having the same problem!
dude our weather/climate has been so freaky lately. Today is Wednesday, its almost 75 outside. On Friday we had a mini ice storm, and the roads were covered in sleet and ice. Last week it was the same thing, had about a half inch of snow while it was 40 degrees outside, and it stuck to the roads too. This was right after it being 70 again. I cant explain it, but thank God its definitely definitely NOT global warming
