    Quality over quantity for this SoCal trip. Glad Churchill's did some online sales, because I ended up having to work over the weekend. The Almanacs are Valley and Peche.

    Hardly a haul but I only ran in for smokes but could resist grabbing some beer while there.

    Well hello there, you sexy, sexy ladies...
    Dude sent me a Pure Hoppiness on top of the Citra! Steve I don't know if you have a BA account, but if you do and are somehow reading this, you are the f***ing man!! I actually think the Tired Hands bottle next month I'm gonna send him might not be enough now... Might have to pop some Nugget Nectar in there as well. Or maybe a Flying Mouflan? Hmmm... Ideas anyone?

    I had a friend stay with me to visit PA. She sent these beers because they "looked" cool. Not a bad selection at all.

    How do these trades work - who has fresh PtE AND HT - and is willing to trade them both?? It's my understanding that anyone with access to one of those beers has to trade for the other - and I KNOW no one trades to get trade bait!

    Yes, I finally succumbed to a Bruery beer but this is worth it to me after having it on tap last week. Also, stop at Half Acre and got a howler of Pony, a pilsner. Since I've not had a lager in a while.

    Example. I travel to SF frequently for work; getting Pliny isn't hard. I trade with Vermont often; people often give heady as an extra. Boom - I have both.

    A bunch of local stuff that I've picked up over the last week other than the JuJu & Chillwave which came from an awesome BA in Ohio today. I've really felt like a kid in a candy store with quality beer lately.
