    I hope I'm not breaking some sacred forum rule by taking it upon myself to post this thread, but since 2018 is upon us and the old thread has been locked and noone else has filled the gaping void yet, let there be a 2018 beer haul thread!

    So this is the place to brag about your latest beer purchase, with pictures! Please keep things on-topic and friendly :slight_smile:.

    Made it to San Francisco and stopped by the City Beer Store. Damn this place is great! Fantastic selection, but just picked up a couple today.

    Y'all know I'm an IPA-head so I load up on a few I had not tried with the exception of the Dogfish Heads 90 min. Giving it another chance as it didn't do it for me the first time.

    That being said the Founders was outstanding. Bold but very smoove on the palate. I'm not really one to go stout but am a Founders fan and have been seeing this for ages so I dove in. I'm glad I did.

    That Burton Baton may have been the star of the show.

    I never had a tangerine infused IPA I could drink. Most come off as too tart and grainy on the mouf feel. Not anymore. I found the Southern Tier to be quite enjoyable. The tartness is very subtle.

    In fact, the only one of these I would not put in the fridge again is the Brew Kettle stuff. While not a big fan of their beers I can drink the Black Rajah every now and again. But this Old 21 left me uninspired.
    Bottoms Up.

    Warning: @Vidblain had an Ivan recently, and it was infected (or, at least it was sour). I don't know if it was the same year.

    Best of luck!

    True. It was a BA 2016 - I opened it on Friday, the 29th, and immediately after removing the cage, the cork blew out of the bottle. It was pungently sour and gushed for a good ten minutes.

    I was not happy. Damn thing cost me on the order of $25 plus shipping from California. I wish you better luck with your bottle @bbtkd !

    First buy of 2018, five new ones to try. I've been on the lookout for BA Ivan since I got into craft two years ago, and finally bagged one. I plan to drink this soon, so I can get more if I like it and if it's still available. Sorry about the repost - deleted original message because something happened to the image.

    A follow up on this mysterious "premature" Hopslam 6er that I mentioned/posted in a different thread. It was a year old... Malty mess. Althought tasty (in a different way) still not what I wanted in taste for a fresh Hopslam experience. Owner gladly refunded my money. Thanks guys!

    Anywho...

    A few weekend brews.

    Love the new 6pk format for Tangerine Express. Also that Transient, Henry porter is fantastic!

    First beer mail of the new year! Was a bit worried about it with how cold it got here recently, but everything arrived safely. Shout out to @BWood for hooking me up (once again). He even tossed in some baby supplies for our new addition to the family...great guy right there!!!

    Didn't get much today at the store, but glad for the Evil Twin. Eager to try another imperial stout with chilis. Also got a shipment from Tavour but not going to open it until tomorrow. KIinda tired after the beers my wife and I shared tonight.

    Not a traditional lineup but rather a snapshot that reflects my worried view into a box of brews that trekked across the country during the deep freeze, followed by that moment of pure joy/relief when you realize that...nothing burst! Cheers, BA! Keep the hauls coming.

    I was getting excited about impending Hopslam with your post. Glad the owner gave you a refund. I once had a store owner tell me year old Sierra Nevada Hoptimum I bought wasn't bad, it was "developing, like craft beer does" and wouldn't give do anything for me. Last time I shopped there.

    Yeah It was a bitter/sweet moment at the same time. Their usually pretty cool about stuff like that. That would have been the last time shopping there also if things went different. On a brighter note a few places got their shipment a few days ago.
    Everybody else getting hit next week. :wink:
