    A very solid package just arrived from Xtent in California. The Alpine growler is O'Brien's IPA.

    Finally arrived in NJ. And my rep through me a couple of these Duvel snifters? Any ideas on how to remove the hideous design on them? They feel like Stone bottle printing if that helps.

    • Ayinger Celebrator doppelbock - I've had my eye out for this for a while now
    • Weihenstephaner's Vitus weizenbock - I'm betting this is will be excellent
    • Got my Doom on, 'natch
    • Resin x2 - spot-on DIPA

    I had asked if he would mind hooking me up with the glass. It seems a number of bottles were "accidentally" packed as well.

    Haha, I will find out soon enough. But I will say that BB4D is one of the best beers I've ever had, especially aged for a year. It's gonna be pretty tough to beat, although I hear great things about BCBVS.

    Huge thank you to Roger85. I was having a hard time trying to hit wants for a BIF and Roger85 offered to send me something on my targets "wants" list. Today, the beer for the BIF gets delivered with these three completely unexpected beers on my wants list. Yeah, its on now.

    My first Russian River sour and a bottle to share with some BAs this weekend! The Heady and Nugget Nectar were extras. Thanks Mike!

    Throw them against the wall! Seriously I don't think they will come off. I reuse 22oz bottles for brewing and getting those stone bottles clean is impossible as far as I know.

    From what I hear, Star San is effective at cleaning Stone bottles. Just picked up a 5 oz bottle from a HB website for $5 so its worth a shot since these snifters are quite sturdy and I do like them...aside from the atrocity painted on them.

    Wish me luck.

    Thats good to know since I use star san when I brew to sanitize equipment it would be easy to use it on brew days to clean the bottles. Good luck

    11th in line for this one case. There was actually a bunch of women in front of me amongst all the bearded men. This is awesome because a)women who drink Doom are awesome and b) women who go buy thier man beer at 12 O'clock on a Wdnesday are awesome.

    But what if those women were the wives/girlfriends of said bearded men? Then the bearded man got two bottles!

    Just landed this monster haul from ZombieJester:


    Blind Pig
    Coconut Porter from Maui Brewing
    Liquid Breadfruit from Maui

    Melange No 3
    Mrs. Stoutfire
    Born to Brew
    Victory at Sea
    Sea Monster

    and a sweet Bruery bottle opener. I got him pretty good as a secret bunny BIF partner, but he destroyed my porch. Time to plan my return strike.

    Not a big haul, just some things I picked up in East County while I drove around doing errands. Super pumped to come across an 08 Vertical Epic, especially after hearing he has plenty of earlier years once his shop gets more set up. Also excited that after picking up the 2013 espresso IRS and seeing they had regular '13 IRS I walked across the street to a liquor store for the hell of it and found a 2012 IRS for the same price I paid for the 2013s. Good day for some West Coast gems :)

    Most of those women were probably the significant other to a non bearded man. Thus them being at a "real" job and not being able to score a bottle at 12 on a Wed.
