    One of these days you'll get it right on guess 1 of 10. I'm going to start guessing for next weekend now... Bourbon Barrel Jai Alai

    Was no guess my friend...

    and these are 'vintage' weekends, so it should always be something that has already been released. Leon will come, in time.

    Yikes, $20 for a 12 oz bottle that we paid $10 for about 4 months ago? Glad I passed on going over that way this morning.

    Thanks. I've been trying to track it down in trade, but if it is practically Huna, i've got plenty of that. :)

    Did you try the old viscosity? i have a bottle of Older viscosity that I'm been waiting to open... might bring it along to a future pre-release share.

    The Black Butte was solid, so too was BCBS.. I brought along the La Folie and tried it for the first time and it was great... A few bottles of Fantome showed up after the pic and they rocked too...

    The pre-opening tasting is fantastic, then you get the CCB lineup when the doors open. Makes for a great day...
