    Had the following today:

    Zombie Dust (always good, duh)
    Anchorage's Bitter Monk (disappointing, very heavy handed on the spices and quite yeasty, hops never really showed up to the party)
    Dark Horse's Blueberry Stout (absolutely killer this year)

  3. Beer advocacy at its best. I was walking some trails today, saw a buddy of mine riding by on his bike, he said I got you something back at the truck. Turns out his brother in Cali sent him some Pliny and he was gracious enough to share. Awesome surprise.

    Started with a homebrewed sour and New Zealand IPA, and some Templeton Rye that we also poured onto some wood chips to soak for a few months.... now I'm drinking a Vanilla Doubledog that a friend got for me, then it's on to my first Nitro Milk Stout, a Third Coast, and if I'm still alive... a Central Waters BB Stout. Life is gooooood.
  13. Met up with some old college buddies this evening. A Torpedo and a Bell's Special Double Cream Stout at the house, then on to the bar for a pair of COAST BA Blackbeerds on tap followed by a COAST More Consistenter Citra Pale.
    God bless you COAST.

    Just got back from an amazing 12 days back on the east coast. Didn't have much time to post while I was there so figured I'd post all these now. Got to try a bunch of stuff I've never had before

    Gift of the Magi by the fire

    And the only one I didn't get to (hopefully my dad enjoys it)

    I am taking a long, overdue, road trip back home to St. Louis to get major doses of family, Imo's Pizza and KSHE-95. Beer hunting and stocking up on Schlaflys' are also on my agenda.

    Went out with my brother and his fiancé today, had a yuengling. We moved to a different bar that had some craft, asked the bartender what was on tap, they didn't know... Ok well I see you have a founders breakfast stout in the cooler, I'll have that. I get the bottle and a reply, "breakfast stout, sounds disgusting." I found that pretty enjoyable, I also loved seeing my bro's fiancé's face when I returned from the restroom after she snuck a sip. Yeah... She hated it. All I could say is its the first stout you have ever tasted, and its an imperial.

    Next up I had a sly fox route 113 ipa. I loved it, I also loved seeing my bros girls face trying her first ipa. I told her she wouldn't know what to expect, but yeah she hated it.

    Returned to my bros house to indulge in some good ol fashioned bud light! How could I resist the fellowship that would ensue from us sharing the same beer. It may have sobered me up in the process! :D

  30. Sorry to hear that, man. Hope your family pulls through. It's rough dealing with a loss like that. Cheers and best wishes to you and your family....I'm not drinking this very second, so I raise my future glass to ya.

    Very sorry to hear that. Never a good time to go through that, but the holidays are the worst. My mom lost her dad on Christmas 40 years ago, even after all this time, its a happy/sad day for her.
