    Wut tha hell. If the regular WBAYDN thread can be a thing, why not Localish version? @John_M delete if needed.

    To kick off this thread, I'm just knocking back a couple Cedar Dusts, whilst some new neighbors are doing a terrible guitar/singalong in the communal space. At least the cute hippie chicks are cute hippie chicks .

    Finally got around to sampling Machine House's Dark Mild. Don't know much about (well anything really, but in this case specifically) english milds, but it fits my imagination of what the style is supposed to be pretty much to a T. Really enjoying it while teaching myself a new game that felt apropos.

    Homes, get thyself down to their space. @TheBungyo and his wife took me there. Nice, understated place. Very British. Friendly folks, enjoyable brews, tasty brews. I think highly of the beer, the folks, and the place.

    I fully intend to. Just don't get out as often as maybe I should (or is it the other way around), and get down south even less than that. But It will change, even if minor, for change is constant and unavoidable. Plus I've got some schemes and things...

    I split a can of Fort George 3-Way with Mrs. Vurt last night.

    While I enjoyed it more than the draft pint I had last weekend, it still strikes me as maybe two-thirds of a great beer. The nose is terrific. The flavor starts great and has a good middle, but it has no finish. It just ends abruptly.

    Maybe that makes it three-fourths of a great beer. I don't know.

    Just cracked open what I think (Not sure if I have any at Justin's) is my last bottle of the original version, still brewed by Tonya, with the OG label, of Bend Brewing Lovely. This bottle has to be a couple years old, at least. Holds up great! Damn fine brew, still a favorite.

    @beertunes or any other knowledgeable cedar duster out there.

    Is there a way to decode the dating on a can of cedar dust? I ask because I almost grabbed a sixer, but felt it was old. On the bottom it was stamped 22/13/18. Just a mistake? I was at mid Columbia and ipas go there to die. So many beers (ipa) over a year old.

    I did pick up bale breaker’s fresh off the farm (canned 5/11; enjoyed this last time I had it) and georgetown’s Citrus galaxy (canned 4/20; never had, any good?). I usually stick to the weekends (4 am comes too early), but curiosity may get the better of me tonight.

    May have been a misprint. 2/13/18 was a Saturday, but there was a random Saturday run a while back........


    I just checked my cans, and found one 23/04/18, and Dust generally gets packaged every 2-1/2 - 3 weeks, so Feb 13 seems reasonable.

    So worth picking up? Or too old?

    Recently found 6 bottles languishing at Jackson’s Corner. Even got a deal to free up the cooler space. Lemme know if it was truly your last and you want another 1 or 2. Still have those Boysen the Wood variants for you too.

    I'm not a freshness freak, so, YMMV, it would still be enjoyable enough, but certainly past prime. If ya can get for a discount, it would still make an acceptable shower/lawnmower beer. If they're still asking full price, I'd suggest passing.

    Are the ones being brewed by the new folks maintaining the legacy?

    So, strictly for science y'all understand (and, to get a beer out of the fridge) I just popped a CD dated 23/04/18, so about a month and a half out. Still nicely enjoyable, if perhaps the hops aren't quite as bright. February would certainly be duller, but not terrible, IMHO.

    Buddy of mine just swung by after work to drop off some string lights he couldn't make work in his new spot. Thought I could cut into my stash and gave him a couple of cans as a thank you. He asked what was in the bag. When I told him he laughed, because the bag he had in his other hand was full of crowlers he'd brought over leftover from work. So I figured I should crack into one of them, as it seemed appropriate.
    Shame Spiral (Cloudburst) has a lot of characteristics that are en vogue currently from body to that overripe fruit sweetness, but also balances with some nice lime bitterness. But now I've got *eyeballs it* like 20 oz still to drink after this glass finishes? Gonna be a long night fellas...

    OE comes in sixpacks? How 'bout that.

    You know what you should call the mix?

    Is drinking OE800 in any form other than a 40 sacrilege?

    Is that the only size it comes in now? For some reason I thought you could buy it in a larger format than that.

    Of course a 40 ounce bottle fits so nicely in a brown bag when you're out strolling down the promenade on a Saturday night.

    Weekend is here. Drinking the Georgetown Citrus Galaxy. Very enjoyable. Granted my GT beers have been limited to their hoppy offerings - manny’s, Lucille, bodi, and now CG, but I feel Georgetown needs more love. Dare I say underrated?

    That's what I thought I recalled. The only reason it even registered, is that I remember at the time being horrified by the thought of consuming 64 ounces of OE.

    At a bottle share featuring Imperial Stouts. Brought one of my OE cans as a palate cleanser. So far we've had Oort , Rogue XS, Kulshan Shuksan, High Westified, Cavatica.

    Just woke up with the early portion of today's hangover. Five or six beers at Iron Goat's anniversary party, a couple more at Orlison's because they are shutting down on Thursday so all beers are $2.50.
