    Nice session PA that I've never seen in a bottle before. Also only $2 a bottle. Okay then.

    This is actually still drinking ok. The often cited floor cleaner flavor isn't as present. Cheers!

    I plead stupid because I've never heard metal used that way. I'm finally 'gonna stump my kids with a new one but will still be considered "old" and "so not hip". :(

    Round 2 from earlier. Really has become my go to IPA. Home brew came out great! Always good to hit all your numbers on a brew day.

    Cheers!

    Did you pour the entire contents of the bottle into the glass? It's a bottle conditioned beer, pour it quietly and leave the last 1/4 inch "or so" in the bottle, drink the schmutz from the bottle, or pour the whole hog in the glass.

    Unibroue's Maudite......1st of many! Pure awesomeness. I'd post a pic, but the BeerAdvocate is evidently not an iPad advocate. SMH. [ii]D

    HA! There's "Top Shelf" beer for the party and then there's the Miller which is "bottom shelf". ( I'm sorry, it is so appropriate and I find it darn funny!! :D ) BTW, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, man!

    Victory Yakima Glory first, now sipping on my first Southern Tier 2X Milk Stout. Pretty good shit! Debating on whether I wanna go for the Java Head Stout after this before heading out to the bar with friends.

    H*ll, that's brilliant! :D If there was was a brewing fire, there's no better place to be to get outta there quick! Just like if I ever were to be hit by a car, I want it to happen in front of the E.R.!! Seriously though, that's creative when space and location is limited, I would have paid for a photo of that! I tip my glass to you for ingenuity! :)
