    Hmm. For some reason I thought they said that it had the hardest time turning over without being too old. I could be wrong, so don't quote me. But I just thought they said it was the beer that went bad the fastest, and the bottles were sitting around so that's why they're kegging it more except special 4 pack bottle releases like Double Trouble and other 4 pack special releases. Who knows, either way, I'll miss the $10 6ers I can get now.

    I just popped open my first of the night. This is the first time that I've tried the Hop Head Red. Not sure if I care for it too much. It's OK but that's about it. Doubt if I'll buy it again.

    Did I mention we just got Great Divide in my area? ;)

    This was one of those "holy crap!" beers:
    Espresso Oak Aged Yeti

    Maybe I should have had a "regular" Yeti first, but I saw this before I knew they'd be around - and how do you turn down a beer like this? - it's a miracle it lasted in the fridge the past few days.

    Super-classy fine drinking experience full of roasty espresso and cocoa flavors - the oak aging added a dry, almost ethereal quality to the drink. Not too sweet - very nicely bittered, super creamy and smooth. Wow.

  19. Sucks is sold out everywhere, so this will have to do. (And it does do quite well)

  20. Trying out another Sucks. This beer should be tested for vitamin C IMHO.
