    They just got a bunch of Jai at the Beer Store Southampton. It's awesome because all the Hopslam covered up the fact they got this last week! Friendly's, I heard, just got some in as well do maybe they're branching out their distribution?

    Shit's getting nuts outside! Snow like mad and winds picking up. Hunkering down with a whole bunch of stuff tonight. First up is a brew from the newest addition to the RI brew scene, Foolproof Brewing. I am having their Golden Ale. It's solid. Crisp and tasty. 4.5% abv and 12 oz. cans to boot make this beer extremely crushable. Probably going to kill this sixer and then hit that bottle of Makers Mark 46 I got. Making some salmon burgers a little later (on the grill if the power kicks out).

    Little bit of this to start out being snowed in! Then a nice 100 yard frolic in the snow to a friends house, for more beers and hopefully darts! Stay warm my friends!

    Starting with a local on this very snowy night, Blue Point Sour Cherry Imperial Stout (definitely better when I had it on tap a year ago than out of the new bottles)...

    I'm having another Canebrake, but this time with eggs, bacon, and hash browns. It's breakfast for dinner, folks.

    If there were such a thing as a double or a triple "Like' this would be its most pressing candidate. Well done, monsieur!

    I've got 2 bottles of this great brew awaiting for me to get off work! It is a spring seasonal from Deschutes brewery of Bend, OR. Great choice!

    This is a disappointment. Double IPA? Where are the hops? It is super fresh, but does not match the description at all. Sorry Mayflower I love your regular IPA, the Pale Ale and the Porter, but this is not working for me.

    1775 Tavern Ale by Battle Road Brewing. Good debut beer, needs some refinement. Would be awesome on cask or with some age. Snowing like a mutha here in Boston.

    They told me I was getting two feet of snow. So I started drinking Insanity.

    I couldn't think of a better answer.

    I got more cloying sweetness and booze than anything. Really did not like this despite their porter being a favorite of mine.
