    Pittsburgh finally got Hopslam on draft. Thank you, Fuel and Fuddle! At happy hour today I had 2 Bell's Hopslam IPAs and a Rogue Chocolate Stout. No pictures today; my phone was running low on battery. Cheers!

    Still a little too hoppy, although not bad. I'll let this year's batch sit a bit longer. See you in the Spring, FIS. Next up on the interwebz:

    Cheers, all you Hopslammers!

    Quick one before the girlfriend gets home. Off to get stuff to make dinner soon, then open up more stuff.

    Initial impression: ugly-ass can.

    This is from last night, But FYI to all of you... Bruery Rugbrod and waffles with maple syrup was an amazingly epic combo for dinner... breakfast for dinner with that beer was probably one of the better choices I've made in February....

    First time drinking Black Note! Really looking forward to it.

    Figured I'd go with one of my more neglected glasses. I typically go with the Cigar City snifters.

    The bock I had earlier really didn't deliver much. Maybe that's what they do.
    This antidote sure does:

    My first Hopslam! I'm so excited, I had to pop open 2 of them.
    Oh my God this beer is beautiful. Such a clean taste, great aroma and gorgeous color.
