  • About

    I'm mostly into sours. I'd take a new berliner, gose, flanders, lambic, sour stout, or random wild over just about anything. I still enjoy a nice english-style barleywine especially with a few years on it or a fresher barrel-aged one so it still has some bourbon character.

    I'm not a hop head but I recently started getting back into IPAs after a 4yr hiatus so if you have a favorite that you think I'll like, let me know! Recent favs are TGB PseudoSue, HF S&S5, Zombie Dust, Coop F5 IPA, & Focal Banger.

    I'm not into Belgians that aren't sour.


    Top Wants: CD11, Plum Flora, Stenciled Pages, Oude Fermier, Fencerow, Fuzzy, West Ashley, Chez Monus, Kiwi Herman, Kuhnhenn BBFT, Side Projects, HF saisons/sours (Ann!, CD7, Juicy, Mimosa, Prolegomena, etc...), anything SARA (esp. Fruit Punch 2, De Garde Berliners, or other awesome wilds.

    Permawants: anything I haven't had from Kuhnhenn or TGB, fresh BB4D, aged 4D, any Cantillon (esp. Fou), HF Art/Arthur in honor of my dad, HF S&S5, CS Bourbon Cherry Origins, Alpine Great, Side Projects, or Jackie O's Sours especially OGP and Dynamo Hum.

    Ticking every state, still need any beer from: Arkansas, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming.

    I LOVE Glassware. Please check lower down for wants/style preferences. TL/DR: mini snifters or tasters that I don't have are always appreciated.
