    2 white whales in past month:

    1. Dinner - Nothing like getting in line at 4:30 AM this past weekend in the middle of Maine - Good thing it is a warm December
    2. Utopias - Released earlier than usual this year so I was in town - has been a day after thanksgiving release for the past several years and I was out of town.

    Oh, believe me, it's true. The comedy is in the fact that TheIPAHunter would not seek these beers. Sometimes you have to have fun.

    Good Morning by Tree House (incredible)
    Oude Tart by The Bruery (not really a whale but at 23 bucks and for the first time seeing Bruery in this area, it was to me)

    only 2 that wow'd me. everything else I've tried I can get at any time.
    whales aren't really seen in the Ocean State :slight_smile: :slight_smile:
    I've never seen any Bourbon County, KBS, Westvleteran 12..etc.

    thankfully I live driving distance to some amazing breweries in the Northeast.

    I don't really actively go "whale hunting" or whatever, but I did have some special beers this year for the first time:
    Heady Topper
    Cantillon Gueuze
    Westy 12
    KBS
    Stickee Monkee
    Firestone 19

    Dark Lord is one I would go out a little of my way to acquire, but I haven't done much to that end. Plenty of good beer options where I live. Spent an insane amount (for me) the last month or so...
