    With humbleness, we can say that St Valentine's Day is in fact an Italian holiday!

    The bottle actually does say it is made with hop extracts.

    What I was getting at was that I doubt he'd be able to tell by the taste of the beer alone.

    it's V'day. That means I give-up the beer for one whole day and socialize with my beerphobic husband. His gift: I made him key lime pie martinis with a graham cracker-lime rim. After kiddo does to bed, we're going out :-D
    Happy V'day fellas!

    Think it'll be either a super-fresh bottle (Feb. 1) of MBC Peeper tonight, or a bottle of probably also extremely fresh Captain's Reserve IIPA (Captain Lawrence). Although, jzeilinger did something extraordinarily generous (and unsolicited) and hooked me up with a bottle of HandFarm, so that may be in my future sometime soon . . .

    If Beer Karma is a real thing (and I wouldn't exactly call myself a Beer Hindu), then jzeilinger's fucking rolling in it. What an awesome guy.
