    Hey all,

    Just coming off of one of the best beer weekends of my life (Sculpin, KBS, Heady Topper, Exponential Hoppiness) and was wondering if any of you can remember when you just said "screw it. I'm going to binge of some GREAT beer this weekend!" Was there an occasion you were celebrating? Some delayed gratification you just couldn't wait for anymore? Tell the story!

    Some of us call that Tuesdays. (Just saying,not being a dick) Some of us are Dad's and a tasting on a week night with a buddy is all we can do. So we open some rare things at random times.

    Cheers!

    Was your bottle of Expo from the Jan 27th release ? If so how did it hold up. We drank all of ours ( 6 bottles and a growler ) pretty much over the following few weeks after purchase. Alpine is so much better when it's super fresh.

    Cheers.....

    I've been told that you don't need a special occasion to open that special beer. Opening the bottle (and drinking) is, in and of itself, a special occasion. On that note, I think I'll crack open a Black Note.

    I'm jealous, and Unfortunately, I live in New York where none of these titles are available to us. New Yorkers truly have to seek out the cream of the crop!

    We trade for a lot in CA actually. We tend to have good stuff to trade well with others. We just have to do it at off times really. Keep the wives and kids happy.

    Cheers!

    Not related to the most recent batch of Expo but I have had a 6 month old one next to a week old one and the 6 month old held up amazingly and was just as good as the fresh, a little different but still good.

    LOL, I'm not supposed to trade their beer so it doesn't help me to talk them up anyway. You just mad that I take Nelson bubble baths.

    Expo does hold up really well, other ipa's I always have fresh.
