    In the new year, I too will be able to get Growlers of beer from someplace other than the only brewer in my town. I'm stoked!

    Morning person here as well. Starting out today with a new Bass India Pale Ale. Not bad, better than regular Bass.

    I'd certainly give it a go if I saw it on the shelves here.
  7. The missus usually raises an eyebrow if I start before noon, but seeing how she's left me to beerwork and retreated to another level of the house I'll join y'all without fear of the dreaded skunkeye. o_O

    Summit Extra Pale ale for me. Another solid, no-frills brew from them.
  8. Well I'm not drinking anything yet, but these are the options...there's also a hop stoopid in the back and some Two hearted ales . Def wanna save the Wookey and Double Jack for tomorrow night, I'm thinking Union Jack will be a good start!

    Union Jack? Great choice! When you give the Double Jack a go, I think you will be amazed.

    I hear ya. I'm not a big fan of coffee, I prefer tea, but give me a good or better coffee brew and I'm a happy camper.

    They'll be bottling Jade soon, so it'll be much more available than it is now. I'll be sending out quite a few bottles in trades. Like I've said before, it'll become the new Pliny.

    working a growler of Bourbon County Brand Coffee (style) Stout I picked up this morning - funny how my local beer distributor tapped this last monday and there's still some available,(@ $33.99) while the 4 cases of bombers they got a few weeks ago sold out in a day - is it because it's harder to trade/re-sell a growler?

    I *think* most beer drinkers have a negative attitude towards Growlers. If you don't finish one at one sitting, it won't be worth drinking the next day or 2 days later. Wrong! At least, in my experience.

    Incredibly delicious balance between big fruity hops and sweetness from the rye and malts. Yummy in my tummy. I see the ratings for this haven't been doing very well, maybe that's because this ironically benefits from having some age on it. This is probably about six months old, and the hops made way for a good kick of rye.

    Gosh, you Yanks know how to handle your IPAs. Good on you.
