    Thank you. Fortunately, my living room and beer selection, my lady, and my dog are keeping me plenty warm....but talk about cabin fever!

    Indeed! My office has something like 14 national flags hanging up, an old world map, a current map, a globe, and a small Pennsylvania flag on my desk alongside countless atlases. I'm kind of a geography nerd, but more so for flags/vexillology. I've been itching to buy a complete set of mini-flags for all 200ish mini-flags of U.N. members.

    I already had a chicken wrap around noon and just polished off a sushi platter, but I'm coming over for dinner. I'll bring some Hopslam.

    2012 Fremont Bourbon Abominable.

    The perfect followup to 1985 vintage Saison Pipaix.

    Barrel Trolley's Belgian Wheat. Not a particularly good beer, but I hadn't had it before.
    Should have used my first post on something better.

    Sorry to but in but it is crazy that once I left Northern Virginia the craft beer scene has mad leaps and bounds. I used to live in Ashburn and would have loved to had a craft beer place there! :D

    Sharing some Hoppin' Frog Imp Oatmeal Stout and Gnomegang with a friend from work.

    Heading to Chicago for a business trip tomorrow. Hope to enjoy some beers you can't get in New England before return flight. Will check regional forum for some good beer bar options (hopefully near O'Hare).

    Yeast from a Hill Farmstead Anna bottle, hence the name. This is very dry with a slight tartness. 2 cases left, whatever shall I do with all this Arthur Clone??

    I moved here from San Diego about a year and a half ago and it has grown even in that time. Still doesn't even come close to home though.
