    One thing we know is that Hanzo won't flag you for it! :slight_smile: It's been a great day of great beer so far. I started with a Shorts ControverciALE, then a Prolonged Enjoyment, and now I'm sipping on a Tocobaga that I received in a trade a while back. I'm lovin it!

    Finally cracked this Melange No. 3 I got in a trade with fellow BA deadeye. This is a dessert beer for sure,a little on the sweet side and super rich,but 100 % delicious none the less.

    Went to the Allentown Art Festival today and stopped for a bite to eat. Enjoyed a Brasserie des Rocs Grand Cru. I've never had a beer with that much sediment floating in it. It was amazing with a meatloaf, pesto and tomato panini.

    then my in-laws came over for dinner and i surprised my father-in-law with a Raspberry Tart (the only beer he ever tasted that he liked). BIG THANKS to biglobo for sending a ton of these my way to share with my pop-in-law over time.
