On to The Knowledge by Naked City with some Gov't Mule:
Just had a Green Flash Palate Wrecker, now moving on to Hop Stoopid...in a hoppy mood. All the while enjoying a sharp provolone and cheddar cheese plate.
Hopslam and Rush Creek Reserve (cheese bound in spruce bark).
Apparently Sculpin found its way to my area this weekend, or the local shop is doing some black market dealing. Regardless, im the winner
Having a Sucks and watchin winter X games . The snowmobile tricks are awesome .
And then there were eight...enjoying Benno, a saison brewed with honey from the newest Trappist brewery Stift Engelszell in Austria. Pairs perfectly with bacon wrapped chicken breast stuffed with brie and asparagus...

No pics tonight:
1. Sixpoint 3BEANS
That is all.
Having an Old Ruffian Barley Wine and watching the DVD of "The Godfather." 2 American Classics.
Hopslam should be available in the area tomorrow.
Sucks and Zombie dust. Back to back. Over and over. This won't end well.
It's that time...Nightcap.
If you are drinking a Lagunitas Sucks, you need do nothing. Simply post nothing, and we will just assume you are drinking a Sucks.
had to finish my girlfriends growler that she left here of Working Man's Lunch Fullsteam.
How is it tasting? I was blown away by Tasmanian this year and only got to try this one last year but my bottle was about 4 months old when I tasted it. Good to know I need to keep an eye out for this one now.
This just keeps getting better and better as it warms. Don't get much maple, but big coffee and vanilla flavor with a real nice bourbon-warming finish. I can't wait to try this fresh in a couple months.
The IPL was pretty damn good, this one... ? Eh. It's just not my style, man!
I am not a huge fruit beer girl, but NG's Apple Ale is one of the very few I do like.
Had to wet the whistle before The NEBCO tap takeover on Tuesday...
Recycled picture from yesterday, same beer but in a Weyerbacher tulip. Spent part of the evening sharing some Sucks and Hop Slam with a couple of good friends.
I am glad you tried my personal favorite! I actually put in an order for a case of it myself!
And many salute's for you too! If you enjoy the bottle after two years, a fresh one or even better on tap makes just that much more better!
I have a tear in my eye now...
Anything Gov't Mule, I'm IN! Saw those guys a few years ago in Pittsburgh, Warren Haynes has the magic touch on the guitar! (IMO)
First beer from sun king- wee muckle
Default answer for the the next few weeks...
never a bad choice with 16oz of Torpedo.
One last one for tonight
Bourbon County Cherry Rye
I absolutely love this beer!
Stone Vertical 12 12 12 is nice now! I have been drinking later in the eve more then usual lately...
My last Celebration this afternoon...
Opened a CCB Jose Marti porter now. Happy Sunday evening!
Switching over to a pint of Hop Diggity by Port Townsend and some Flecktones:
How is it?
I love it when my glassware accidentally matches.
Everyone is out of Celebration except my buddy who has 6 cases left! INSERT EVIL LAUGH HERE! Yes for once I boast for him
Do we need to have a comin' to Jesus meeting? C'mon man, follow your own advice (and I quote you): "You do know today is Sunday don't you. Drink some water, slap some Nutella on a piece of bread and get back in the saddle." .... Let's go, Alice! (j/k!!!!!!!!!!)
I bought a 6-pack of Budweiser Black Crown earlier this week. $5.99 at Target, btw. Cheap! Curiosity got the best of me.
It's basically a sweeter version of Budweiser (sweeter in a caramel way). Almost no aroma (like Bud), a little darker than regular bud (Amber, as it says) and drinks very smoothly. The first few sips were almost cloyingly sweet, but as my palate got used to it, it was very balanced and drinkable.
I mean, it's not an amazing beer... by any means. But if I had a choice between say Bud, Black Crown, Bud Light, & Bud Platinum, I'd pick it. That said, I'm gonna stick to Shiner Bock for my cheap go-to.
Certainly not a winter beer. It's a lawnmower/football cheap beer that you save for your in-laws that drink BMC to be "fancy".
Thought about it long enough and caved in! Nightcap:
Cheers to all ~
