    Excellent, thanks! I know where I'm going tomorrow afternoon..

    Actually, I missed the Hales Corners bit and mixed it up with a different store downtown. I know where I'm NOT going tomorrow afternoon (not having a car stinks in this town)..

    Still kinda kicking myself for not going to the Bon Iver show at Brewery Ommegang last Monday.

    Beer looks great! Can't wait to get my hands on some 3F, looking forward even more to getting back to Hill Farmstead (hopefully in a week and a half or so).

    glass is excellent. thick, well made tulip top. smaller than the other sixpoint glass, but far from a mini snifter. similar to the hoppin frog glass. happy to have it!

    Yeah they do. It's printed on the left side of the label in the tan strip. They seem to smudge really easily and I end up having to check the whole 6 pack until I find a legible one. Here is a pic showing where it's supposed to be, right above the cigar. As you can see it is completely illegible (if this bottle matches the other in the pack that says 11 SEP 12 :astonished:)

    Woah, Bon Iver at Ommegang?!? That's unreal!

    Enjoy, HF my friend, I can't wait to go there myself. Seriously, get S&S5. It blew me away. Grab some Vera Mae to go as well, I would argue its the best saison I've had. Cheers bud!

    neither. although i probably would not have nabbed a 4 pack of Resin today if the glass didn't just arrive in the mail (the brownstone i got for the other glass, i was looking to get anyway since i haven't tried it yet from the can). getting a glass that is beer or brewery related could definitely motivate me (and has many times in the past) to get the beer, but i won't hold onto a beer waiting for a glass unless the glass is on the way. i definitely prefer to break in a new glass with the right beer, but it doesn't always go down that way, but have plenty of glass favorites to use if i want to hold a new glass for a proper christening.

    now you know, and knowing is half the battle.

    First Pumpkin ale of the season(after already having like 5 O-fests lol). Not bad at all, really solid. They went light on the spices so as a result this is really drinkable and not offensive.
    [​IMG]

    Damn good Schwarz, a very robust 4% beer for sure.
    [​IMG]

    Starting on this. DAMN GOOD. Val Dieu's Tripel is fantastic, and I am having good impressions from this. I have their blonde in the closet too, so I will complete the trifecta soon. Then I just need the Grand Cru

    Thanks! I checked all 5 remaining and cannot make out a single one. Oh well, no biggie, tastes fresh

    Yeah, thinking of making the rounds of Sendiks, Whole Foods, and anywhere else on the East Side tomorrow anyway, have a free day to myself. I know Otto's is selling it on Saturday, hopefully others have it earlier.

    Comparing Central Waters and Ayinger Octoberfests - classic versus American micro upstart. Both are great - the Ayinger is lighter in color and body, but delivers a full malt flavor. I love the carmel flavor of the Central Waters. They need to enter this in the United States Beer Tasting Championship - would like to see how does versus other midwest O'Fests - Capital, Lakefront, Great Lakes, etc.

    I honestly cannot wait for their Tripel now, after that performance last week. Fricking delicious and very complex. I want to see what my favorite style yields in their bottles with bugs in it. Cheers!

    I would drink an entire six pack before I had to choke down a Pumpkinhead. God pumpkinhead if people keep buying it then they are just going to keep making it...

    I've seen them like that as well. All the bottles at my total wine had the black printing the last time I was there, and they go through a lot of jai alai. They must have changed their dating procedure for the most recent batch.
