    Troegs Scratch #4x (41? 42?)

    I decided to go visit the brewery shortly after moving to the area, and checked the website the night before. I'd never looked into it, so the Scratch Series was new to me. I saw that they had an IPA on, and decided to give it a try.

    Got to the brewery, and without looking at any menus, asked to try the scratch beer. Didn't look or taste anything like an IPA, but I decided to buy a six pack because I enjoyed it. Only after finishing my first bottle the next day did I realize how good it was...and only then did I realize that it was their most popular release to date, having just gone on sale the morning I visited and selling out in hours. Phooey.

    I thought GI Night Stalker was mentioned to be a one off, so I bought 4 cases in 2010. Then it pops up again and again. Fine with me. The '10 is killer smooth!

    Just take up brewing, and spend the rest of your life chasing the recreation this new love of yours.

    It'll be like that episode of Pete and Pete where little Pete is chasing his "favorite" song but nobody knows what it is, so he starts a band to try to replicate it.

    It is a new seasonal, I think it will be around again.

    I had Brewdogs Bitch Please. A collaboration between Brewdog and #Floyds I so wish I had bought many many bottles of this one.

    Ken Schmidt/Maui/Stone Collaboration Kona Coffee macadamia coconut porter is mine. Had the chance to try the homebrew version that Ken Schmidt had made (my ex GF's aunt's boyfriend incidentally so I burnt that bridge lol). I would do almost anything to get some more of that

    Man Baby - Pizza port (OB) I barely knew thee.... they changed Head Brewers and the old one took the recipe with him.

    Also the Picture for it as a man holding a baby with there heads switched. So you didn't know if it meant a Man baby for a baby man.

    Great IPA AND a great pun! Oh how i miss it.

    Get some Alpine from Craftshack's website. It's super tasty if you haven't had it. Even better than this one you miss.

    Funky Buddha/Cigar City collab Snack Attack

    A chocolate covered peanuts themed beer with elements of sea salt, caramel, and licorice. The ratings do it no justice. It was a little hot on the back end, but had one of the top 3 best noses of any beer ever and was incredibly rich. Fantastic beer.

    Bruery Fruet. In my opinion, its the best anniversary batch they've made.

    Weyerbacher 15. It's a smoked imperial stout that they brewed three years ago, and yet somehow I'll still come across the occasional four-packs in less-trafficked bottle shops. I buy them out when I do.

    It will be a sad day when I have my last one.

    Since I just began drinking craft beer last spring, the only beer that comes to mind is Lakefront's 25th Anniversary Stout. Only have two left, and looking forward to opening one, one year from when I purchased it. April 19th
