    I was introduced to Port Brewing. Or "Pizza Port" as I know it. At FFF 15yr Anny party.
    What a pleasent surprise!
    I love their Pales, and have recently been hunting them and gotten a few in. "Pour man's IPA" has still escaped my grasp. It captured me at the party.
    But the others have been stellar!

    So how are their dark beers? This stout any good?

    Last one for the night. Putting my New Holland glass to the test. Out of the three great beers I've had tonight. I think I like Sucks the most. And it's the easiest/cheapest of them all. Can't wait until Lagunitas opens here in Chicago! Oh yeah. Hopslam rounds out the trifecta. All three great though

  4. 8 degrees here in MI. Starting out with a Dundee Pale Ale then moving on to SN Porter and Founders Porter after they warm a bit.
  5. Couldn't decide how to follow the 09 BCBS, So I just kept with the 09 theme.09 Stone RIS

    Feeling Like Daddy Cool right now.

    Sorry for the late response, I just got home after a night out with my wife. The 2010 Nemesis is very good. I like it better than the 2009. I would go ahead and drink at least one now. I can't imagine it could get any better but would probably hold up well for a couple more years.

    Late night with Backwoods Bastard. So smooth and warming.
  12. It is great, elegant smokey roasty malt, deep orange chocolate, perfect oak sweetness. It's like a Tulip full of tears..

  13. My son, who's a junior, always gives me shit about my "beer porn".
    Well...he just came home a few minutes ago, while I was listening to the Zelda percussion number you posted.

    He just told me "I take back everything - that f'n rocks" (he's in percussion @ school) and saved the page.
    So thanks - you just made my night!
  14. First one of these beauties for my nightcap; how sweet it is![​IMG]

    Another quiet night drinking a beer that's as sour as I am about other people's athletic awards.

  26. Started off with a Victory HopDevil (tasty!)

    Then moved on to this while cooking wings for the game tomorrow.
    This was my first one, but I will definitely buy again!

    Well instead of a Ten Fidy, after the sucks I went with a Double Jack.

    Biggy would dig it.

  32. One of the more unique bottle openers I've ever seen. If you made that, you need to market it to the appropriate retailers in your area.
  33. great beer - enjoy!

    this is the last of my collection and they've served me well. i started collecting the porters in 2003 for six years and cellared them all. i finally cleared out my beer cellar this year and tapped into the collection. i probably had 24 porters ranging in vintage from 2003-2009. i must say, they were very enjoyable and this is the one beer i had the most of this winter. the 04s and the 08s were some of the stars...just took my last sip...sniffle. this beer goes down as a candidate for most consistent and ageworthy...up there with hotg and sierra. cheers!
