    Supporting Relic Brewery, a damn fine nanobrewery. Not my favorite style by any means, but this winter warmer is not spiced and has an excellent use of malt varieties. Cheers BA!

    Visiting an old favorite... Sierra Nevada Stout. Love the hoppy finish to this stout. This is perfect on a 15 degree night in upstate N.Y.

    Yeah, love this beer. I was able to get a couple 4 packs and only have 3 left, I was thinking about saving one or two for a year but not sure thats going to happen.

    Erskine has been playing well for us this year, but I have a feeling even though refs missed it (not sure how), Erskine may be getting a call from Shanahan next week for a game or two. Rinaldo and Hendricks went because basically because there was no call I think.

    And I'm eating some cheap but pleasing store-bought sushi with some Valdeon I splurged on yesterday. And some olives. Weird diet, I know.

    Thought about buying a bottle of rye tonight, but held off. The store had Ri-1, Sazerac, Rittenhouse, Whistle Pig, Colonel E. H. Taylor, McKenzie's Rye, and something else. Colonel and Whistle Pig are probably too rich for my blood, but any suggestions from anyone familiar with rye?

    Growler of NEBCO Gold Stock, any thing they do with hops is amazing.

  15. Rinaldo/Hendricks went before the puck even hit the ice.
    Rinaldo punched his helmet about 20 times...and you know it was over the hit to Simmonds.

    And...I have 6 BB in my basement :eek:

    Started with a Hopslam, then went to a White Rajah, now I am debating between homebrewed maple porter or Founders Porter to finish the night.

    Got a chance to try some Odell stuff (IPA and Mycenary) this year, and both beers I thought were absolutely fantastic. I will be getting more whenever I can.

    Starting out with a Mother Earth Silent Night Imp Stout. It's down in the 20s outside, but with the wood stove going & this fine beer, I believe I'll be warm soon enough!

    Yeah, I definitely fall in the latter category. And it seems to be across the board with me on all their beers. Not that they aren't good, I just don't really enjoy them.

    First time I've had it, pretty good, I think I like the Original better though. Got a 6 pack as a tip last night, so it's all good.

    The Original ain't no slouch, but the Pilsner definitely grew on me- going through a sixer at different times seemed to show a different facet each time. Now I get it once or twice a month. It seems like you still have a few more to go, so who knows...
