Happy Thanksgiving Day Sunday, New Beer Sippers. Hope the Americans in the crowd had a good Thursday holiday and that the rest of you had a good random late November Thursday. For those who had to deal with family, I hope it all went well and no one had to do anything like ban a crazy uncle from the dinner conversation since you will probably have to interact with the whole family again at a Christmas dinner. Speaking of Christmas, anyone get into the Black Friday mayhem? Or as craft beer patrons, did you opt for Small Business Saturday yesterday? Or as obvious web users, are you waiting for Cyber Monday tomorrow? Or maybe you and the family decided against gifts for self-reliant adults, finally? Getting back to Black Friday, did any of your local breweries have releases this weekend? It seems a few breweries around me have bought into the Black Friday release concept. Even if your locals didn't, maybe you got in on some of the Goose Island Bourbon County offerings; I'd be a little surprised not to see a couple posts of them today. On the topic of brewery releases and shopping, they sort of lead me to the point of this thread. Did you find a new beer recently, perhaps from a brewer near you? Are you willing to share a few specifics of your thoughts on that beer today with us? You don't have to give a categorical review based on look, smell, taste, and feel, but we'd like some of your objective-as-possible thoughts on your initial encounter with your beer. We won't judge like your family might, though we might chime in with our thoughts if we've also had the beer - you know, for the sake of discussion. So let's assume you have a new beer. The pricing here is the same as always - your time and willingness to put together some verbiage into a post to inform others. Sorry that there's no discount this weekend, but we do really appreciate the time you spend crafting your observations into a nice review post. After all, it's the thought that counts - a ha'penny for yours?
