    Thanks. Yes, had Baltic Thunder many times. Unfortunately it's just not the same as Perkuno's Hammer in my humble opinion.

    Anybody remember Full Sail Golden Ale? Back in the 90's it used to be my go-to summer brew......

    At one point Perkuno's Hammer was just not the same as Perkuno's Hammer...:grinning: I loved the original recipe, still good after a couple tweaks, but not as much.

    I don't want anything brought out of retirement. I like finding new beers and finding beers that remind me of something I had enjoyed before.

    When my wife and I lived in Colorado in 96-97 there was a beer we loved called Tabernash Weiss. Left Hand bought them out and supposedly carried on the recipe under the name Haystack Wheat. But it was very different from what Tabernash made. However, time has a way of making you reflect fondly on something you wouldn't like today if you could have it again. Like many people, I though Fat Tire hung the moon at one time.

    I always look forward to your posts. Your one of the few that has a respect and understanding of the past great beers. When you mention these fantastic beers, it brings a nostalgic feeling to me. I was very fortunate to have a father who has been cellaring beer since the mid 1950s. He has all these beers in his cellar and boy can they stand the test of time.

    It's so different that I wonder why Victory invoked the name Perkuno's Hammer when they released Baltic Thunder. It just makes it that much harder to take the beer on its own terms.

    I'm definitely a fan of BT, fwiw- I love the huge malt presence that they get. It's definitely more on the slightly-roasty-doppelbock/imperial schwartzbier side- way different than the approach taken by, say, Smuttynose these days. Sometimes I'm in the mood for one take, sometimes the other.

    Rumor has it that STier is going to start bottling Mokah again, and they're doing away with Plum Noir.

    I saw it in Winston-Salem but it has been about a week now so no guarantees.

    I know its pathetic and completely girly, but my love for craft started in mid 90's with Pete's Strawberry Blonde and Sam Adams Cherry Wheat. I had the Cherry Wheat about a year ago and still tasted darn good to me. Wish I could taste the Strawberry Blonde again to see if that still holds up after all the pallet wrecking I've been through the last couple of years.

    Haven't thought about this one in a long time...."Why ask why, drink Michelob Dry" Genius marketing slogan! Wait was there a Bud Dry and was that the slogan? Maybe I'm getting mixed up in old age. Either way its Anheiser Busch, who cares.

    True enough! Still liked every Perkuno's incarnation I tried (including Black Ocean) better than Baltic Thunder.
