    Lakeside Wine & Spirits in Long Lake - it's my local shop. It's one of those stores that gets most of the good limited/seasonal stuff but doesn't sell out of it for a week or so after the fact. Plus, when their singles fridge starts to fill up, they put garage sale prices on stuff... in the past I've bought Beer Geek Weasel Cognac for 3.99, Brux for 4.99, Hitachino XH for 0.99, Saboteur for 4.99... pretty rad if you ask me.

    Beer Geek Weasel Cognac for 4 bucks? You must have literally let out an "AWWWW YYEEAAAAHHH" when you saw that.

    Genesee Bock for me tonight. It's totally decent, and a great value at $7.50 for a 12-pack.

    Underrated red. That's an awesome ale there my man.

    Edit.....It's rates an exceptional. The truth is out there [Twilight Zone theme]

    I got a fool's luck discount on my Ten Fidy. If I could get it for 8.99 every time, I'd buy it all the time.

    $3.99??? I would grab so many of those! Hands down my favorite holiday/Christmas beer. The closest I got to a deal like that was Delirium Noel about a month ago at $4.99.

    Made a po boy, enjoyed a 2013 SN Bigfoot while cooking and now a Hopslam. I gotta say, the Bigfoot really impressed me this year. Really smooth drinking yet still has a nice hop profile. Dangerous for such a high ABV. Oh and Hopslam doesn't suck either.

    Samuel Smith's Organic Chocolate Stout. Really good stuff. Body is thinner than I expected (I think I had ST Choklat on the brain), but a fine and active carbonation works wonders with this one. Overall smell and taste gave me a flashback to childhood days of Hershey's syrup-laden chocolate milk. . . .

    Just had my first Pliny the Elder now drinking this. I recently heard some fellow BA opinions on Pliny yesterday saying that it was over hyped and hopslam was superior. I have to disagree, Pliny is so clean and well balanced, arguably exactly the definition of what a double IPA should be in my humble opinion.

    A 'feel good' beer after another loss in my nineball league. It's working already. Also, I love this new 'review all of the Belgian classics' project I've got going on. Might I mention, I've got Gulden Draak and Chimay Blue in the fridge.

    Really nice stuff. Quite intense and robust in flavor; but the spices arent overdone. Well balanced.

    Tastes exactly like I expected being its brewed with white grapes. Nice complexity and balance. A very nice Belgian Strong Pale ale.

    Maybe some Ruthless rye and homebrews next. Cheers

    It's -17 with the windchill now, and it's going to be -7(air temp) and -26 with the wind chill when I go into work tomorrow. I need something to warm me up and keep me warm. This will do:

    Working on Hill Farmstead Civil Disobedience #1 now. Floral, earthy, peppery, tropical fruit and a touch of sweetness. This one is really nice, right up there with CD5 of the CD series.
