    Thank God it's friday. Don't know if the rainbow is visible on the picture but it sure was a nice touch on a cold friday afternoon here.

    I'm having one of the more interesting Swedish macro lagers which has a nice orangey hop note. Nothing like an American craft beer in its hop presence, but bready and delicious with a nice hop note.

    Absolutely gorgeous day in Texas. Woke up, checked the news online, and saw the same old tired argument over gun control. Way too nice of day for that rubbish. Poured myself a Santa Fe Imperial Java Stout and about to take my dogs on a walk with my beer. Used a coffee mug so that my nosy neighbors won't gossip haha. Some people like starbuck's in the morning, i like a coffee stout.

    One is night, the other morning.

    But from the looks of the rows of empty bottles behind the Java Stout, I think the neighbors may already know.:)

    I have a Firestone XVI in the trunk of my car. I really want to go outside and drink it, but sadly work calls.

    I was feeling great about my fresh Nugget nectar (bottled 01/23/2013) Now you are making me feel like my Nugget Nectar is old.

    Excellent choice! Midwest guy in north Jersey...Nugget Nectar is one of the few East Coast beers that ABSOLUTELY lived up to the hype. I still have not seen any.

    Kids had 1/2 day and wife is home. Just cracked open this bomber:

    Port Brewing High Tide IPA
    6.5% ABV
    60 IBUs

    nice brew for lunch and watching the snow fall.
    I got 3-4 more gems chilling in the refrigerated on-deck circle. ;)

    Nice choice! Not sure of your choice of hockey team! ;) Just kidding, I don't mind the Blackhawks at all. Just glad you didn't switch over to the Flyers when you moved to Jersey.

    H#LL NO! I am 15 miles from Manhattan. Can see the GW from my kitchen window. If we stayed in Jersey/NYC area, I would adopt NY Rangers as my 2nd team, different conferences. I will never cheer AGAINST my hometown.

    That's one interesting fridge you got there. I assume the beer is being held between two condensing units?

    Love that beer. I have a daughter who lives in Tampa. Whenever we go visit her, the first stop is Cigar City.
