    Went to winking Lizard for the Duvel glass, but there was a lizardville inside, so I got a mix six and the Bruery beer I missed last year. Will return.

    Really liked the Hop Butcher / Revolution collaboration beers Base and Superstructure, hope they were refrigerated.

    Picked these up last week, planned on posting this week with another release but the brewery didn't issue their annual WCIPA release.


    Didn't let the sun go down on what apparently is an annual clearance sale at the Walgreens which gets the biggest Bourbon County Stout allotment each year. Didn't get there in time for $3 regular bottles, but picked up a dozen 2019 variants at $5 each. Final tally six Cafe de Olla, and three each of Wheatwine and Mon Cheri.

    Hoping to return to this thread tomorrow with a case plus of Beachwood offerings plus others.

    The whole top opening looks cool, but it’s a bitch to pour from, especially into a narrow glass. The Glen Noble interesting, but a sour with coffee? Hard pass on that one! :grin:

    Khourey’s has some great sales now on some older bottles on styles like this and stouts which hold up well. I don’t see Chicago stores do this often, beyond non beer stores like Jewel or Walgreens.

    Thanks, didn’t want to be caught without lambics before returning. Like introducing my brother to new styles, as he usually sticks to Hazy NEIPAs year round, and stouts in cooler weather.

    I drank a 2016 bottle last summer, and it turned out to be one of my highest rated beers. That bottle did have a different label (purchased at Beer on the Wall) but it did have a best by date of August 2019.

    Hope this one still is solid, it’s one of my highest rated beers here (4.6), and the highest positive standard deviation of my posted ratings.

    Nice trade with @Limazulu.

    - Drekker blueberry basil sour sounds intriguing.
    - Kiss of Death by Sockeye Brewing. Never heard of them, but it sounds delicious.
    - Huge Arker by Anderson Valley. Another delicious sounding massive brew.

    I went to 3 stores this afternoon looking for a BA Barleywine and didn't find a single one (maybe later in the fall?)

    Somehow I ended up with some more smoothies and overpriced hops instead

    Had to grab another 18-pack of the SNPA pints. Too affordable to pass up for such a classic. Tossed in some 3 Floyds Permanent Funeral since I’ve been digging old timey huge IPA.

    I think it may be server end. I am having issues in Chrome, Edge, and Firefox for the past couple hours. Maybe 50% of the pictures show and the others error out.
