    Happy Friday bitch... damn it. Happy Saturday bitches!!! Half way thru my sixer and still saying good but not great. Very low activity in this one while motionless and seems flat, but I seem to be in the minority on this one. Cheers LNBA!!!

    Finally getting to settle down and relax after a hectic day/night. Cracked open my first-ever Brooklyn Local 1, watching what I hope is another top-notch and quirky Wes Anderson film - Moonrise Kingdom. Cheers!

    I heard about that movie on NPRs Fresh Air today. I'm really interested in it now.

    It was announced originally a while back, get with the times :p. Here's a really new article relating to it:

    http://www.dnainfo.com/chicago/2013...luster_id=253912&index=1&group_hood_id=129628

    Taproom slated for April and production brewing is slated for fall according to tweets. It'll be at the corner of S Rockwell St and W 15th St west of Downtown.

    So far so good. Got the always present Bill Murray appearance, so the Anderson character formula's pretty consistent ha. Definitely pleasantly surprised with Ed Norton Jr.'s surprisingly humorous role. If you like Anderson or, I'd say, Woody Allen films, I'd suggest checking it out.

    Started the evening off with a Revolution Brewing Anti-Hero IPA. It was good...

    but the Brew Kettle White Rajah was better.

    Finished off the evening with a Rogue Dead Guy Ale, which turned out to be pretty average. (I liked John John Ale though, which is Dead Guy Ale aged in Dead Guy whiskey barrels.) I got to use my pilsner glass, so it all balances out in the end.

    Been looking forward to trying this one for a while, as none made it to WI last year. Thanks to a generous BA I was able to get a 4pk of BBPt5th, drank one and loved it, and it's interesting to go from that, to the base. Pretty god damn good. Michigan sure seems to pump out some amazing stouts, barrel aged or not.

    Magic Hat recently made its debut in OR, so I decided to pick a bottle of #9; consuming it now. #9 is exceeding my expectations- unique, fairly tasty, and refreshing. Definitely a good value as well.

    Listening to these guys tonight...

    Ah, that is good news indeed. As much a I gripe about Lagunitas, I really want to like them more. This will be the perfect opportunity :)

    Magic Hat offers a 12-pack sampler, but idk if it's available in Oregon. But if #9 piques your interest in the brewery's offerings and you come across it, I strongly suggest checking it out. I've picked it up on a few occasions, and one or two times it's come with one of the brewery's seasonal or specialty brews. Overall, their beers aren't anything to rave about, but they do produce consistently solid and reliable beers true to the given beer style, and I've never come across one of their beers that I wouldn't willingly drink again.

    At 16.8% ABV I didn't need too many more, but still finished up with a Founders Breakfast Stout and a Double Wide IPA from Boulevard.
