A nice care package arrived from Belgium today.
Got lucky on a case of RuinTen today. Haven't been able to find it anywhere in southeast PA, none of the lists I was put on panned out, and as a last ditch effort I just started calling distributors and lo and behold, one just got a case in today. It was the only case they got in. So I'm pretty hyped on this one.
Just got this in from a great trader SixPack6 . First time with most of these Wisconsin brews .
This is the tiniest haul that will be posted on here today (I am 98% sure), but its the first gueze me and my girl will have ever tried as of later tonight! Cheers to all the big boy hauls!
Another great trade w/ Woody1180! Thanks Rob.
Random find on my lunch break. Pretty pleased with this small haul.
While waiting to meet alex021224 for an IP trade, I went into a cool little bottle shop.
The reason I was in the bottle shop is because I was waiting on these 2 Puppies from alex021224
A surprise UPS delivery from one of my West Coast contacts. Be Jelly, peeps!!

--Westbrook Mexican Cake
--The Bruery Black Tuesday

I miss the nip bottles. Those bottles are really cute.
Also De Molen used to make incredible beer back then but that is besides the point. Very cool collection.
Are they all green bottles? I remember there being transparent ones which used to look black with the liquid inside. Are there any beers that were released both in transparent and green bottles or was it always the one or the other? Is there a logic or was it just whatever was available to them?
A small but mighty (IMO) haul from Bottle Revolution. Also had a 21st Amendment Imperial Jack draft while shopping.
Nice little haul today:
Big thanks to Mike (Crookdrain) for setting up the être order!
Little package arrived today. For all the haters:
Haven't had a good haul in a while. I'm pretty pleased with this one!
Paradox, Bois, and Tactical Nuclear Penguin.
Then found all this waiting for me after returning from a 3 week road trip:
Russian River x3
BCBS snifter, thanks to Kevanb!
How great is this?
My local store just got in 4 new breweries, Evil Twin, Crooked Stave, Westbrook, and Stillwater.
Here's what you're looking at:
Evil Twin's Aun Mas Cafe Jesus, which not only means something about Jesus and more coffee, it also means that we're on the map next time Imperial Biscotti Break comes around
Crooked Stave's Vieille (Old), Hop Savant, and Surette (Sour) - a saison, an APA, and a saison, respectively
Westbrook's Bearded Farmer "Thomas" saison and Mexican Cake Imperial stout
Stillwater's Cellar Door (makes me think of Donnie Darko) and Existent - both, again, saisons (!)
jizzus sh@t isnt there a bottle limit??? you are disgustingly lucky
Trades from the past couple weeks:
Jack's Abbey Hoponius Union x2
Jack's Abbey BA Framinghammer x2

Jack's Abbey 2nd Anniversary DIPL x2

HF Elaborative #1 x6

Looks like a dog stole the stuff based on what was left behind from the dog's behind.

Recent trip to Copenhagen
Props to Beast464 for hooking me up with a Cherry Rye! The Lunch leaked a bit but ima drink it anywas! Hey if one was going o leak in this box I think the bee gods sacrificed the right one! Your box is on the way but it's gonna be hard to beat ya when you sent me a Parabola as an a extra! 2011!!!
So what's the verdict? That's a good beginner Gueuze, but there's so much to discover! Get your hands on a Tilquin if you can, relatively easy to find and damn good. Enjoy the ride! You're wallet sure wont.
Most of them are transparent even. Might be a bit strange, but the odds of these beers going skunky is slim to none
From what Menno told me, they stopped doing them because the supplier started asking them to buy it in huge bulk (like by the palate), which they at the time simply couldn't afford anymore. Not a surprise, their profit margins must have been tiny if they made costly beers like these all the time.
We usually don't get any, but this week they're clearing out the leftovers from the festival last weekend.
