    Landing this morning after being overseas for a couple months. Any BCBS and CBS still around either the airport or SLP? I will be stopping at F44 as it looks like they are releasing some.

    When I called Eden Prairie Liquor on Friday afternoon, instead of a greeting by the store employee, he said "Yes, we have it, come on in".
    As I was making the 'CBS' purchase, the same employee observed another customer and commented that he was sure the customer was there to get the 'CBS' (the other customer was wearing a hoodie).
    Yea, we all get noticed and type cast.

    How old are they? Won't buy anything from Surly over a month old, sorry. Especially when I can go to numerous breweries and get crowlers that were canned the same day. Not cans that have sat in a warehouse for 1-2 months.

    Imagine the look on the faces of the TSA personnel when they x-ray a leather satchel full of scrolls.

    Ok, opened a bottle of CBS, I had sky high expectations, it surpassed them all. This beer is worth all the near 3,000 pennies I paid. Wow. Strong maple, strong barrel, awesome.

    We're almost through the greatest beer season, right? Going to have to remortgage the house. It's worth it though.
