I'm having some Goose Island Nut Brown tonight. I have to say, I'm actually really into it; it might be my favorite GI beer (including BCBS).
After having mostly seasonal releases lately, decided to go with an old favorite year round release first tonight:
Canned SNPA earlier.. GL Alchemy Hour DIPA right now.. cheers!

Drinking a Yuengling Lager. Haven't been to the beer store for a while, so I had to resort to the beer I keep back for my brother and dad when they come over. LOL
PBR & Pizza Port!
One of these is awesome!!
Stillwater Cellar Door, cheers!
The sour that got me into sours. I still love it.
Watching B/W episode of Walking Dead. Very cool. This has a slight metallic taste, especially at first. Anyone else notice that? Maybe I just got a bad one. But it gets better after sitting in glass for a while.
Knocking out a long-time want tonight...pretty tasty
damn... this is such a tease! I seriously need to get my hands on the mighty Bourbon Barrel version!
Grilled cheese, pot roast soup and Two Hearted.
Finishing up a Stone Levitation and moving on to a RR Damnation.

Cheering on the Caps with some of this:
and now some of this:
This is up next!
And a quick question! I know I have acted out of line to many, and I apologize to each and everyone off you, for being off topic. It shames me to make this mistake. And I sincerely ask you forgiveness in this...
This aside, I have a question, or rather I would like opinions from fellow BA's, in regards to my love of Italian craft and how it reflects here on the BA. It is something that is shocking to you, misunderstood, or even boldly something you reject? I would love to continue this path in the Italian craft and start my own Youtube channel dedicated to this. I was curious and hope this does not bother that I ask. I have noticed that I am one of the few, if at all, the only one to focus on Italian beer at this level.
Advice from one guy, FWIW:
Post what you're drinking, maybe a song you're enjoying, and call it good. The constant focus on Italian craft and your own music and long ramblings about anything and everything Italian is annoying and leaves you open to criticism from many.
Again, just advice from one person.
Was lucky enough to score this in a recent trade, as Bell's ain't in NJ!
It's a good ass night.
A little sumpin' sumpin' ale for the fiance, and a fresh, bottled 2 weeks ago, Sucks for me!
Both have a very similar hop profile, but the aroma of the Sucks is marvelous, while the spicy, wheat-y finish of Sumpin' Sumpin' is great. A nice combination that would be probably go well in tandem.
Uh, yes. Moar please. This is damn good.
If you want to show your passion for Italian craft just make sure you post a pic or video of you actually drinking a beer if you are going to post in LNBA.
I feel a lot of your posts informative and interesting but there are a lot of sub sections of the forums that deal with each and every aspect of the beer scene in Italy. You don't have to post everything in this forum but thats all.
I respect your passion for beer and enjoy your input.
Got it! Lesson learned from other day so I will not focus on that anymore. But permit me to ask one final question sincerely, because I hope if anything, I am a nice dude: Are most of the BA's here very strict on how they use this forum, and how if someone like me who upsets that, why they get so upset? The issue I have is I am too social and free in my conversation and I really lack discipline in regarding some rules of conversation.
Your love of Italian craft is not what rubs people the wrong way, but rather the manner in which you express your love of everything Italian. We are all adults here and many of your posts read as if you are telling us that the thing you like is better then everything that we like. If people are interested in what you are drinking they will ask. At that point feel free to educate the person since they asked for the information. It will come off a lot less preachy/holier than thou and should gain a better response from the community.
If you keep posting how you have been you will alienate more people because it seems like you are trying so hard to make something cool that no one else has acknowledged as worthy. Please don't take this as an insult to the quality of the beer. Think of it more as being that annoying hipster who tries to force some obscure Indie band on everyone.
