Good morning to all you kindly kingpins of kvass and loquacious laureates of landbier. Welcome to New Beer Sunday. Today is the day and this is the place to TRY a new beer and TELL us about it. What sets us apart from WBAYDN is that we take a moment to chat, to share our thoughts about the beer, and to tell a little about our day or our week. Please feel free to embellish your post with pictures,with music with prose extolling the virtues or with vituperative criticisms of the new beer you had for the first time today. This week has brought some cold temperatures but no real wintry or snowy weather here to Ithaca. I guess I can't complain. I am getting ready for the holidays and I bake a lot of cookies for Xmas. It's almost insane how many I make but they look so pretty on the tray. I started with chocolate crinkles. We will eat some now and the rest go in the freezer to await the big presentation. If you ask me those crinkles need a good healthy helping of whiskey to flavor them a bit but who wants to appear the lush? Our very own @Roguer sent me some beer mail the other day.Thanks so much Roger. =) I could not help but be excited. He sent me some very fresh lunch and some Captains Daughter DIPA. Thank you so much Rog! I loved Captains Daughter and it was a very memorable beer for me from the beervana festival. That's really saying something when you are literally going from booth to booth tasting all kinds of beer; including plenty of world renowned beers. Grey Sail is not to be found in my local shop .. .yet. But I have high hopes. See you later with my review and may your glasses be always full today! Cheers and here's to Rog!
