    Many thanks to papat444 for this awesome 2009 vintage barrel aged Russian Imperial Stout, it's been in my cellar and tonight seemed like the perfect time to enjoy it! Prost everyone! :slight_smile:

    Had to get a little more geographically specific from my usual "Michigan beer for a Michigan win" superstition, as tonight UM goes up against Michigan State in hoops. So starting off with my favorite beer from Ann Arbor:

    Arbor Brewing Company Buzzsaw IPA

    I've been pretty underwhelmed by most of Arbor Brewing Company's offerings, but this one I think stands out as by far their best beer, at least among regularly bottled offerings that I've tried. Really solid IPA.

    Go Blue! Beat State!

    I put on some Torche hoping it would make the beer better. It didn't.

    Now drinking - Hopslam
    Need to get this gone, as the hop will fade out in the next 30 seconds or so.:wink:

    It doesn't get any better than super fresh Beachwood Laurel IPA.
    Amazingly well made west coast perfection. I mean look at that lacing and retention on that beer. Perfect brew.

    #3 of the 6 I got in a trade. Each one I drink is more depressing, knowing the end of the supply is closer!

    That's a good price. I'm guilty of paying something like $16.99 or $17.99 for a sixer of that at Wegmans.
