this is one from about 2 months ago - the 3 bottles 3 in were from Jerusalem - very interesting.
Nothing entirely special, but an amazing day with Vicsju1991 and Mportnoy.
Looks like an awesome time. Great weather, awesome yard/deck, excellent beer. Cheers!
and or penis pictures will probably suffice....
Mportnoy has an amazing bachelor pad. He's also a great guy.
First tasting and was glad to have hosted DBijnagte and masterofsparks.

Yesterdays tasting at sirsteve42 house, with some cool BAs and local brewers
Thanks for hosting
Yesterdays tasting blew out like half of my want list...can't wait to do it again
What got popped after I left? And yes my wants just got smaller and bigger at the same time
Kuhnhenn BBFT, thats all I remember. I hope Steve takes a picture of the final lineup.
From last night. A few of the stand outs:
2004 BA Speedway Stout
Several Zombie Dusts
BA Siberian Night
A bunch of other stuff
This was the undisputed star of the show.
nice little get together with some great NYC/NJ folks last night at speedwalejim's:
Great time as always, and in the words of a great man the company and good times far exceeded the beers we drank.
Nice man! You guys opened up some pretty crazy shit. (as always )
Lovely bunch of beers there. Any standouts and other notes that you care to share?
honestly everything in that lineup was very good. Notable IMO, the pappy black magick was better than rare, the gratitudes are still drinking amazingly, the mornin delight was quite awesome, and I've come to the conclusion that if I had to drink 1 beer for the rest of my life it would probably be the de cam lambiek special. Just my opinions of course, I'm sure the others can chime in.
Another succesful BFD meeting in the books. Thanks to sirsteve42 and hoptualBrew for thier contributions. 2009 Utopia not pictured but definitely consumed.
jasonycurtis was also in attendance.
Impromptu barleywine/old ale tasting with some friends

2004 Kuhnhenn 4D (oxidized)
2012 BB Cereal Killer
Little beer tasting with licorice straws at Saturday's Padre game.
Sun's out guns out.
Mighty fine looking group
What was better, the cherry Bud or the cherry Stella?
Are those....... Twizzlers™? Or Red Vines©?
It makes a difference.
The Stella was awful. I didn't taste the Budweiser. Best beer of the day was:
Not pictured: Michelob Ultra
Isn't his pic banned from BA?
I had one of these on my camping trip this weekend. It was drinkable from what I remember, but then again I was already "white girl wasted" whenever I drank it.
Dem puckered lips
1 person, 3 costume changes to get around the beer limits? or just 3 really good friends.
Also, beers were not tasted blind, so your results are invalid.
I also feel like we're going to miss a great opportunity to mention Dem Cheeks
Red twizzlers? Once you go black, you never go back.
Need better angle of Brett as his hair doubles as a barometer.
I thought you were conducting a serious beer tasting, but I see you're just wasting perfectly good bratwurst marinade.
Does not compute.
My conclusion is Mornin' Delight all day every day. I haven't had a beer that good in a long, long time. All the rare gueuze (courtesy GrumpyoldTroll... who else) was pretty good though the Kasteel Gueuze was a touch disappointing because of the lack of carbonation.
I agree that the Gratitudes are still drinking pretty good. The '06 was a standout for the majority of the group I think. And to echo your sentiment, GI Rare is starting on a slow, steady decline. Technically, according to Goose Island, the beer is nearing its end (5 years, base beer brewed in '08) so the brewers over their have a pretty good handle on the timing/aging of their beers it seems.
Also.... Do not recognize.... who's E-love and Brett's third wheel?
My 30th birthday tasting at a friend's camp...not too bad. Highlights:
1) Mimosa is unfreakingbelievable. I want MOAR. If you have one, I will just unload on your porch to get it from you. You won't need to just replace the porch, you'll need to do something about the crater I leave under where your porch used to be. Mimosa is a citrus explosion, this bottle could not have been any better. Loved it.
2) Why I didn't buy like a case each of Convivial Suarez and Brother Soigne is hard to understand. And Edith too. Basically, I'm just going to start spending all of my money on saisons brewed by Shaun Hill and company. I feel like this will lead to a happier life.
3) Bourbon Vanilla DL was definitely a standout. Never tasted so much vanilla in a beer, that thing was smooth as can be and scary drinkable for 15% or whatever it is. Dessert in a glass, it was incredible.
4) King Henry is so far over the hill, it can't see the top of the hill any more. Still very delicious, but no longer close to the legend it is purported to be. Too bad. At this point, give me Sucaba over this for 2% of the trouble.
5) 100% BA Coton - awesome. Drinking smooth as can be, tons of dark fruits and bourbon. Still hot tasting, especially compared to crazy drinkability of BV DL.
6) Saison Brett - we ended up having the '12 (pictured) and '11. Both just great...if you love brett, find a 2-3 year old bottle of Saison Brett.
