    What they have available right now makes me want to do another order but the last thing I need is more beer. Gotta say, that OEC Coolship Americana kinda blew me away. If what’s available is still available a week from now, I’ll probably pull the trigger.

    Nah, looks super murky in your picture to me.

    For some reason I love that glass you have in pictures, super basic, but I like it.

    I had some luck e-mailing either the distributor (or Schlenkerla themselves, I don’t recall) a number of years ago and they can tell you what the numbering/lettering means on the bottles. Only they know the code, which isn’t helpful, but at least you can find out.

    That works for the Helles (and I do this too), but not so much for their darker offerings.

    Ha, this happened to me today. I had about 35 beers in my fridge, absolutely didn’t need anymore...came home today with another 20.

    A Czech Amber, an American Premium Lager, a Maibock, a Helles, and a Czech Pale Lager. You’d never know I just picked up a 12 pack of a Kellerbier the day before as well.

    I have a lager problem.
