    And the Jack's Abby motion carries! Man, I could be there in an hour if I didn't have a bunch of stuff to do...bummer. That is the "Battle of the Barrels" thing and they look bizarre enough to be tasty! Especially interested in the cranberry pistachio variant - let us know!

    It's Friday, and at the end of a busy week of work with my brain I surely feel stupid, and so this:

    Seems just about the perfect antidote for a busy, but otherwise fine, work week. Cheers!

    Started with some Deschutes Red Chair and am now on to some SN Ruthless Rye. Ruthless is really underrated in my opinion.

    Struise Macadame – RIS aged on Monbazilac barrels, a disappointment from a usually phenomenal brewery, expensive & seemingly infected.

    Just finished up a Stone Enjoy By 2.15.13 on draught at the South Philly Taproom, now enjoying a Madame Rose at a friends place. Both are so good! Awesome way to start the night. Cheers!

    Found a bunch but felt it was overpriced so I only got 1 to try. No I need to find a cheaper bottle shop as I don't want a case. Just a 6 pack. Would have been $27 here.

    Time to get slammed!

    This is the only bottle I will be having of it this year due to insane Philly bottle shop mark-up ($7 a bottle! wtf?!?), so going to savor this one awhile.

    I'm just getting back from a 17 hour round trip road trip with 14 four packs of heady topper and a mixed variety case of Lawson's finest liquids. It was a long snowy trip through the adirondack mountains and I cannot wait for my first taste of Heady!

    I'm in the LEhigh Valley and paid $4.50 for a bottle today. I bought one only. If it was $3 and priced accordingly I would have bout a 6 pack for <$20. As a shop I rather have the later and have a happier customer.

    He does this with every hyped beer out there. He does have some great bottles though:/

    I had this beer for the first and only time on a trip to California in the mid 80's.
    Probably my introduction to craft beer.
    I liked it better back then.

    Woo, it's not sour. :p But seriously, the extra six months did this some damn good, really liked this last year before the nastiness occurred, but wow. Gonna need to pick up some more before it's too late (along with the BB Barleywine, keep forgetting to go get some..).

    I picked up the Saranac Winter 12 Pack. First up was the Belgian Pale Ale and Saranac did a decent job with it. Next up, the Big Moose Ale and its moderately hopped up character
