    I've only had the regular IPA from them so now I'm really intrigued and curious to try this, especially since it's popped up so many times in the past few days. There's a place I like to visit in Wilmington, DE that gets alot of "good" stuff...it's looking like a good excuse to schedule business down there!!

    Jumping on the NN bandwagon tonight. Enjoying while watching the B's against Rangers. The B's didn't get the win in shoot out but scratched out a point with a great comeback after being down 3 goals in the 3rd period.

    Enjoying Mikkeller Orange Yuzu Glad I Said Porter, a porter brewed with orange and yuzu which is a Japanese citrus fruit. Unknown Mikkeller brews are always a gamble, but this is excellent.

    Pairs perfectly with Japanese Hiyashi Rice...

    Oh, I know . . . a childhood friend of mine grew up on a sugarbush, and I think her family's still in business making syrup. Hard to describe how much I like it and what it represents to me. (Again, I know that this may sound weird to other people reading this, but it's a big part of our identity, especially in the North Country. And y'all can keep your Log Cabin maple-inspired breakfast goop or whatever it is.:)

    Had some Saint Arnold Spring Bock, and some blended Petrus with cherries that I can't find in the database here. Though I very much enjoyed. The Spring Bock is as good as has been released. That might be because SA is making a better product, or I am liking lagers more and more.

    Anyway listening to one of my favorites:

    Just finished a bottle of 2013's batch of Bigfoot. And this is still (and always has been) a damn fine beer.

    First time I had Bigfoot, I was sitting in the back of a minivan, on my way to a party during my senior year of college. Bought a sixer at Meijer in South Bend and didn't know what the fuck to do with this barely-chilled, 9+% ABV thing I'd never tasted before. I think I got it again in the winter of 2010-2011, after I'd gotten quite a bit more into craft beer, and loved it. Now I look at it as something like an old, reliable friend—but still a better one than 90% of what's out there, and it's kinda nice to know that it will always be better than 90% of what's out there.

    If you've never tried fried chicken with ketchup - especially with black pepper - DO IT!
