    Drinking at noon edition

    Started with this, very crisp and smooth


    and moving on to this, much boozier and flavorful. Definitely a winner


    This is all in preparation for Death By Bees cask on Friday night

    2011 Chimay Blue from the cellar. Still waiting for the beer to open up since I just pulled it out of the fridge:

    holy shit. The Redeemer can stand up to Hopslam. Absolutely. Both are 10% Both have amazing hop taste. Redeemer is teh shit. $10.99 for a bomber is not the worst price I have paid for a beer that size

    Had two brooklyn black chocolate stouts and a ranger creek small batch no. 4 before this. Trying a dfh 120 again after several years. This was THE FIRST IPA i ever had coming from BMC and man i was turned off to IPAs for a long time. Couldnt even finish a quarter bottle the first time. Thought all IPAs were like this LOL. Been scared to try this again, but its surprisingly good. Have several left in the cupboard =)

    Can't imagine going from to BMC straight into a 120. I would've ran away screaming! But to be honest, I enjoy one or two fresh 120s..but they're best with some time on 'em.

    Yep. Went stra
    Yep went straight from BMC to 120 years ago (when they still printed ABV on the label) and could not stand the sweetness and that clogged up feeling inthe back of the throat. It's actually pretty good now that my palette has expanded, though its still pretty sweet.

    At work, just thinking about what I'm gonna drink tonight. I might need help deciding. I've had SO many good trades this month... Heady Topper, Sculpin, Victory at Sea, Flower Power, Jai Alai (regular or White Oak), Old Chub, 3Beans, Maharaja, Double Jack.... Then I have some Citra DIPA, Alesmith Speedway, and Nugget Nectar due to arrive tomorrow. Not to mention some fresh Hopslam in the fridge already.

    My head is going to fucking explode.

    Only if you drink them all in one sitting.
    Your head will be ok if you enjoy them responsibly although your liver may swell a bit, cheers!

    Isn't $11/bomber about twice the price per ounce that Hopslam is? For that price it'd better beat Hopslam up along side the head, not just stand up to it.

    I've got the day off today. Cold, grey and sooo lazy. Starting my session off with this big boy:
    My first time with any brew from 2nd Shift; mighty tasty and perfect for a day like today. Enjoying this while making Stout Combo's Beef Taco soup and listening to a little Electric Wizard. I love lazy days . . . Cheers!

    Enjoying a VANILLA SLAYER at tri city brewery with my dog, literally.

    We aged Giant Slayer for a few weeks with Bourbon and Madagascar vanilla beans. Bourbon vanilla beans are from Papua New Guinea and come from the fruit of an orchid variety called Vanilla Panifolia. It is used to impart a creamy, smooth mellow vanilla flavor. Madagascar vanilla beans are more aromatic and provide a rich and intense vanilla flavor. This combination blends well with the rich coffee and chocolate aroma and flavor of Giant Slayer. The vanilla aroma is prominent, especially as you let the beer warm, The finish is smooth, creamy, and slightly sweet

    Well, there is basically two beers I wait for every year; Celebration and Nugget Nectar! And the Nugget has landed! More surprisingly is the fact I am bought one six pack and that is all I need for the year! I should mention that although I love craft beer, I never go overboard with it and just a six pack of this is enough for me!

    My friend, just drop those names in a hat and leave it all in the hands of lady luck. By the looks of your list, there is no possible way you're gonna lose. The anticipation, however, would KILL ME!!!:grinning:

    Enjoyed this with a late lunch; first time trying it.
    While not the best beer of the style I have had, it was very good and I like that some of the proceeds go to the Abbey.
