  3. Definitely worth 20. It's a super awesome sour that isn't at all sweet, which I love. The rye notes really only come through on the nose, I really couldn't taste it at all. All in all a great beer.

    All the RIS barrel aging beers we have been brewing have our reserves of "employee beer" dangerously f'ng low so thank goodness for brothers!:)

    Just finished a Ballast Point Sculpin IPA and getting ready to dive into a fresh Victory Hop Devil.

    Bigfoot 2012 and 2013 vertical with a friend. And the vertict is....

    2012. Much sweeter, more caramel. Smells better. Hops have almost all faded but it tastes like liquid candy now but still kinda boozy and a little hoppy. Both are great beers.

    Had my first Blithering Idiot after a glass washing session. Very good barleywine, actually enjoyed it more than this years version of Insanity. Followed up with a Zombie Dust at dinner. Finishing up with a Peruvian Morning and some chocolate. Life is Good!
  28. Using a new glass
  29. Wings game kinda sucked there at the end...
