    Thank God it's friday. Don't know if the rainbow is visible on the picture but it sure was a nice touch on a cold friday afternoon here.

    I'm having one of the more interesting Swedish macro lagers which has a nice orangey hop note. Nothing like an American craft beer in its hop presence, but bready and delicious with a nice hop note.

    Absolutely gorgeous day in Texas. Woke up, checked the news online, and saw the same old tired argument over gun control. Way too nice of day for that rubbish. Poured myself a Santa Fe Imperial Java Stout and about to take my dogs on a walk with my beer. Used a coffee mug so that my nosy neighbors won't gossip haha. Some people like starbuck's in the morning, i like a coffee stout.

  11. awesome idea. The other night I was walking my dog with a tall boy of Dale's Pale Ale. So what if the neighbors saw?

    First stout for the storm.
  13. One is night, the other morning.

    But from the looks of the rows of empty bottles behind the Java Stout, I think the neighbors may already know.:)
  14. This right here, that's the way you do it.

    I forgot I had this. The hops have faded a little but it is still very good.

    Excellent choice! Midwest guy in north Jersey...Nugget Nectar is one of the few East Coast beers that ABSOLUTELY lived up to the hype. I still have not seen any.

    Port Brewing High Tide IPA
    6.5% ABV
    60 IBUs

    nice brew for lunch and watching the snow fall.
    I got 3-4 more gems chilling in the refrigerated on-deck circle. ;)

    Great pic! I assume that is your wife or gf? Enjoy the beer and woman.
  35. Nice choice! Not sure of your choice of hockey team! ;) Just kidding, I don't mind the Blackhawks at all. Just glad you didn't switch over to the Flyers when you moved to Jersey.

    H#LL NO! I am 15 miles from Manhattan. Can see the GW from my kitchen window. If we stayed in Jersey/NYC area, I would adopt NY Rangers as my 2nd team, different conferences. I will never cheer AGAINST my hometown.

  37. My buddy bucks the system and will put some of the Nugget in his basement and drink in a year or two!
  38. That's one interesting fridge you got there. I assume the beer is being held between two condensing units?

    Love that beer. I have a daughter who lives in Tampa. Whenever we go visit her, the first stop is Cigar City.
