And picked these up on lunch today!
Nice little haul....
Beautiful enough to make a man cry.
On the waiting list for Hopslam, still waiting on word if BN will make it to my area.
Really hoping BN makes the rounds, wife's b-day is in two weeks and this would make her a lot happier than anything else I could get her (great wife!).
1 x Roch 10
2 x Anderson Valley Oatmeal Stout
1 x 4pk Terrapin Wake-N-Bake (had to add to my other stash of WnB)
2 x North Coast Brewing BA Old Rasputin XV
2 x Oskar Ten Fidy (last on the shelves)
1 x 6pk Victory Storm King Imp. Stout
2 x Black Xantus
1 x 4pk North Coast Brewing Old Rasputin
2 x Great Divide Oak Aged Yeti Imp. Stout
Don't want to tick anyone off, but can I paint a picture of my latest haul? My fridge looks like this; it's lop-sided by 13 beers (singles)...various stouts, weissebiers, ales, and several bombers of IPA's (good stuff too, Lagunitas, Founders, Bells, Victory, Stone, North Peak etc), all pushed to the very back by my 16 (two down already!) fresh as could be Hopslams (OK, quite splitting hairs...they are only nine days old), all lined up in the front in nice rows and waiting in the queue for consumption. I've promised myself only 18 this year (I've got other stuff to explore), and promised too to drink only one daily until they're gone, and supplement with the bunch in the back of the fridge. And why not, it's my stinkin' favorite beer! Everything else in there can wait. Who know, maybe this weekend I'll cheat and have two at a sitting. This stuff is off the charts!
You scored! - I just took a road trip to WI & struck out on the Belgian Red
Couple awesome trades and what I picked up from the store.
Trade with Swiderek202 for the 4x BCBS 2012! The rest are awesome extras!!! Thanks, Travis!!!
NG: Thumbprint Barley Wine, Back 40, and Cabin Fever
GI: Big John and 4x BCBS
Half Acre Shewolf; FFF Apocalypse Cow; Suly Cynicale; and Tallgrass 8-bit Pale Ale.
So stoked to try these and share some at a tasting tomorrow!
Trade from surge1311. Thanks!
Trip to the beer store. Was particularly to see the BA Old Ruffian .
What's that to the left? Yes, a case of BCBS Cherry. Unfortunately it's not completely full
TRAGEDY, dear friends. Tragedy struck my humble small town beer store today.
You see, Bourbon County was due to (finally) arrive in my glorious home state of Vermont. I was promised it would all be here, after an interminable wait I could (at last!) buy this stuff in stores. I mean, in a beer wasteland such as the Green Mountain State, it's about time something good happened, right?!
Now, picture the scene:
I have to cross the street to get to my beer store when I get out of work. Sometimes, it can take 30, 40 or even FIFTY seconds to get there. Rush hour, we're talking two minutes. Just dreadful, the things I go through for a beer.
I strolled in at 5:15 after another grueling 7.5 hours at the job. Yup, it was a brutal day. The excitement of what was to come hung in the air. You could cut the beer-sexual tension with a knife. YES! I get to purchase this nectar of the Gods right here!
Opened the door, walked in, greeted my friendly beer store owning good dude, Matt. Store was so busy, I saw two people looking over a glass cooler full of beer in the back. TWO! Hopping tonight, I can see why people always say there's a rush on Bourbon County.
"Bad news, not every store got it all," Matt said. "We got shorted on the Coffee. Didn't come."
(Sound of giant panes of glass crashing down and breaking into a million pieces)
"That sucks," I said in return. This was not good news.
"But I got these, how many do you want?" Matt said, glint in his eye.
Four minutes later, in my car on the way home, CRUSHED from having a part of my Bourbon County dreams smashed to pieces, I turned on some music for my drive. Then I asked the little lady in the passenger seat,
"You okay, babe?"
Yup, she was fine.
I should also mention that the Saison du buff was $1.15, figured why not. Then I saw it had parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme. And that's just trying waaaaaay too hard if you ask me. We'll see how it is.
Trying to post in this thread for the first time, some boxes full of goodness arrived past couple days.
Through a number of trades with generous BAs and some fortuitous bottle hunting trips, I've assembled a Barrel Aged Barleywine collection that I am tremendously excited about.
OK I failed, I was trying to post the pictures not links.
Where's the Sucaba?
Copy and paste the one that says BBcode
Great question. I should probably get on that.
WOW is that saison du buff!!
haha nice haul
Definitely not hard to come by. Nonetheless, I was very excited to find cases of this on my way home!
Family xmas in rural Idaho is not without its benefits. The Abyss was a 2011, found in the cooler at a drive-thru liquor store in Coeur D'Alene
The rest of the midwest haul from November. Unlabeled bottle is sherm1016's homebrew sour brown, reminiscent of La Folie. New Glarus Unplugged bottles are fuzzy, 2 Barleywines, 2 Enigmas, 1 Cherry Stout, and 2 Tyranena Dirty Old Man. Six bottles of Serendipity was nowhere near enough, I have to go back for more soon
Should i pop it....Magnum of
The Founders Cerise is a bit out of place, but when you ship home 60 lbs of beer on vacation, gotta keep the old lady happy
there is a theme and one for my desire to focus on big bottles this year..
Trade #2 with Circleo12:
Dogfish Head 90 Minute
Green Flash West Coast IPA x 2
Pike Space Needle Golden Anniversary IPA
Thomas Creek Up The Creek Double IPA
Terrapin Wake n Bake x 4
Tommy comes through again, thanks man!
I got that stuff for Myst just in time, last 2 times at the liquor store I saw NO 750 mils, not even Serendipity.
