    I'm drinking a Santa Vs Unicorn by the best new brewery in 2012, Pipeworks. Keep up the good work boys, loving your stuff.

    Just had a Tasmanian with some home made Jamaican Jerk Chicken that was on point and a great pairing. Now onto a Hopslam? I think so!

    Found one that I seem to have forgotten about. I actually think it's "aged" pretty well with a bit more maltiness up front. A great instance of bottle conditioning imo.

    Welp, today is my 23rd Birthday. I gave up going out tonight and slugging brews for some finer things. So I am going back to the brewery that first got me into craft right after I was of age. I popped a bottle of 2007 Dogfish Head Raison d'Extra. Meaning this beer was bottle 4 years before I even turned 21. I want to thank the BA community for showing me the light, giving me the insight, and providing me with the ability to come across such amazing beer.

    This is drinking really well, for almost being 6 years old (Bottle Date 03/15/2007)

    Went to Mellow Mushroom for dinner and they were giving away a free Sam Adams glass with the purchase of a Boston Lager or Alpine White so...


    Alpine White is actually really flavorful. My fave SA brew.

    Well, it’s Lagunitas’ final countdown; I’ve been pretty unimpressed thus far with the products I’ve tried, regardless of price point. However, with all the hype I had to try for myself and determine if Sucks does in fact suck:

    So it doesn’t suck, but it’s not stellar or live up to the hype . . . each to their own, guess I’ll just go against the masses. But this is the final countdown!

    P.S. No contest, Hopslam kicks Sucks a$$!!!
