    Didn't see a thread... Hopefully LNBA is not dead or the reason the site crashed (haven't been on in a few weeks). I'd hate to be that guy.

    Anyway, I'm having a 2011 SN Big Foot. Sooooo much better with a year of age on it.

    What's in your glass?

    4 pints of Golden Road Hefe. Solid brew, intrigued to try their IPA now.

    Trying a DFH Tweason'Ale right now. It's not bad, especially for being gluten-free. Probably move on to Founders All Day IPA after this.

    I've been on a wine kick most of the fall/winter.. Is the All Day IPA new from Founders, or did it replace Centennial?

    Enjoying a couple pints of First Bite pale ale from Spider Bite, a new brewery out of Long Island. Pretty good, might wind the evening down with a quad, got a few options in the cellar.

    I believe they just started bottling it around the beginning of the new year. I think they've been brewing it for a while, just decided to bottle though.

    Earlier I had 3 Great Lakes Alberta Clipper at a rollout event at Sams Quik Shop in Durham. Then I went to Bottle Revolution where I sampled a new brewery's (Deep River Brewing) Rye IPA and American Wheat. The former was really good, and the latter was good. Night cap was a gift from a friend. XS bottle of Rogue Imperial Stout. Overall good night.

    Victory Headwaters Pale Ale, followed by a Twisted Pine Ghost Face Killlah, and I'm now working on a Great Divide Yeti. The Ghost Face Killah sure was an interesting beer, and spicy!

    Started at Wolff's Biergarten, Albany, NY, with a half liter of Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier and followed it with a liter of
    Bitburger, finished with a half of Aventinus. Ready for some U.S. hops, drinking Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale.

    Just rewatched the last ep of Game of Thrones and accompanied it with my new favorite blend of Weyerbacher Old Heathen and Schlenkerla Urbock. The Old Heathen is smooth, maybe not so assertive, but that makes this blend so seamless- rich, dark, and slightly smoky. We can't get Alaskan Smoked Porter here, so this is my 'next best thing'. Anyway, the mood of the beer and the mood of the show went pretty perfectly together.

    And now, it's off to some music with a Lagunitas Maximator. Have a good one, folks.:sunglasses:
