    It's nice to know there's good beer now appearing in airports. I flew through Burbank, CA a few weeks ago and had time between connecting flights, after a terrible string of weather delays getting to CA (not to mention about 10 hrs between in the air or in airports); finding Widmer - Nelson Imperial IPA on tap was like an oasis in the middle of hell. :)

    Not to sure, it's in PA. I did hear rumors that they will start distributing in NY soon, not NJ, but we will see.

    Started with this lovely BPA:


    Really nice, brett forward and hoppy. Then I moved to this:


    It's holding very well! Just to test the age I cracked this next:


    While the '08 was slightly "brighter" on my palate, I would not give up the sherry/port notes in the '05.

    Me too. I've studied Chado, the Japanese Way of Tea for 6 years now. Basically, I'm a student in the Urasenke school and I can perform the tea ceremony.

    Checking out Zinneke from Smuttynose Brewing. I really am digging this brew and as an added bonus the price couldn't be beat ($5.99).

    Happy birthday, mine was two days ago. I drank my first ever Parabola for it. Although the BCBCS still reigns favorite beer ever. Cheers!
  17. I have to get back to my practice with the bokken as well as Eishin-Ryu Swordsmanship. Oh and I did see lessons here for Chado in the Philadelpia region. I might have to go to this..

    #4 of the night was Black Crown.

    Does this count as #5 or as #5, #6, and #7?

    New Glarus Coffee Stout. Nice easy drinkable stout. Reminds me of Fullers London Porter a lot. A bit thin, but that adds to the drinkability, plus it's only like 5% I think. Anyways, you wisconsinites are lucky to be able to get New Glarus.

    First time having this and I'm digging it. Don't think this beats Sorachi Ace or Saison Dupont though.

    EDIT: Didn't think the picture was so shitty...Oh well.
