    Yeah. I totally didn't misread a 2 as a 3. Don't be silly. I was totally being silly. :oops:

    Fresh from a road-trip to Hershey, P.A. and the Troegs Brewery... settling down with some pints of Troegenator.
    CHEERS!

    It's pretty good but the bottled on date is smudged so I can't see how old it is. Out of Racer 5, Hop Rod Rye, and this, Hop Rod Rye is my favorite but even that was 4 months old.

    Definitely going on Fresh beer only! when I go to beer stores from now on if I'm not familiar with that brewery. Never trust a store owner when they say something is "fresh."

    Moving on, my last Sam Adams Maple Pecan Porter. The lone savior in a pretty mediocre Spring Thaw box, IMO

    Just an average week. This is nothing. Not counting the beers i bring or consume elsewhere, or especially the liquor lol. My neighbor likes to hang outside in the driveway and knock back a couple bud light limes. i like going out there and drink some of that bud light and chat with him. Everytime i restock i pick him up a couple of new things to try, but i don't mind the macros. When i go bowling, eat crawfish, etc, its all a bunch of macros. Beer is beer, i love it all =) i'm not too good for any brew.

    Sipping on a one year old Backwoods Bastard while waiting for my ride to Top Golf (www.topgolf.com). I love it here in Houston despite our archaic beer laws. Special mention to my good friend Brandon at the best damn bottle shop in Houston - D&Q Mini-Mart!!

    Old on this site, but new to the forums. I like it here. Cheers!

    Just worked my way through the Spring Thaw box. IPL was a muddy let down, MP Porter wasn't bold enough, and Irish Red was as boring as my aunt Donna's Yahtzee nights. Didn't try White Lantern yet, but I'm not a bit Witbier fan so, not expecting much.

    Just give me a box of Old Fezziwig and Whitewater IPA and I'll throw money at you every week or two. Sad that, at this point, I'm most excited for the Boston Lager. At least I know I'm getting a quality beer there.

    Wow! I'm not sure I have the capabilities to describe the awesomeness of this stout. I want to bake it into a brownie and eat it, amongst other acts that I imagine are illegal in most states. Thanks again Steimie!

    Second barleywine of the night. I'm having a Monster Ale. I poured too much into the tulip and the head overflowed. It was finger licking good.
