    Tall Grass 8 Bit. Very good. More like an IPA to me.

    Disapointed in that one. Going to be tough to get myself to drink the rest of that sixer, not 'cause its horrible but because the temptation to drink other, more enjoyable beers could be too great.

    Now onto a much more reliable beer.

    After hearing so much about this beer I went into tonight with very high expectations.....which were wildly surpassed. Excellent beer.

    Cheers to Pando for sending them, and to everyone on this start of the weekend!

    Went to a restaurant that serves craft, because their website listed that they had Sucks. Got there and their board said Daytime. Was bummed, but ordered it. Never had either. Immediately, I realized that what I was drinking HAD to be Sucks, and sure enough it was. Amazing. Great two days. Fresh Hopslam, Nugget Nectar and Sucks.

    Also had Great Divide Fresh Hop Ale, which was good but after Sucks, sucked.

    Third, I had a Church Works Brew Double IPA (I assume this was their Thunderhop IPA). Impressed. They're really off the radar but won quite a few medals at the GABF this year. I might have to start the hype train for these guys. It's an absolutely BEAUTIFUL brewpub and their beers are severely underrated, I assume because it's not from Philadelphia.

    No pics, because I feel like an idiot taking pictures of my cup in a restaurant.

    I'm glad I saved it until now. It was hard to let it sit, but I appreciate dubbels more when kept in the cellar a while. Liked it well enough to give it a 4.21. I say go for it, man. :)

    Not a beer, but starting off my night with a great root beer from a solid brewery.

    Hey, this was really good!
    [​IMG]
    Tumbler, from Sierra Nevada

    Probably a style I haven't found great success with, but this beer was just... alright, it was great!. I must've overlooked Sierra Nevada when I first got into craft beers, but 2012 was a great SN year for me - everything I've had from them has been fresh, crisp, delicious, and unbelievably quaffable - this Tumbler was gone in, like, less than 10 minutes (before I was done with the review(!)), which is really unlike me.

    Really good drinking from an excellent brewer.

    Likely tomorrow.

    Started off with a Sixpoint Resin at dinner out (no pic). I have given a bunch of Sixpoint beers a try, and have realized that they are just not for me.

    Now home watching Caps-Flyers game and enjoying a Backwoods Bastard. Cheers all!
