    Hmm. For some reason I thought they said that it had the hardest time turning over without being too old. I could be wrong, so don't quote me. But I just thought they said it was the beer that went bad the fastest, and the bottles were sitting around so that's why they're kegging it more except special 4 pack bottle releases like Double Trouble and other 4 pack special releases. Who knows, either way, I'll miss the $10 6ers I can get now.

    I just popped open my first of the night. This is the first time that I've tried the Hop Head Red. Not sure if I care for it too much. It's OK but that's about it. Doubt if I'll buy it again.

    Espresso Oak Aged Yeti

    Maybe I should have had a "regular" Yeti first, but I saw this before I knew they'd be around - and how do you turn down a beer like this? - it's a miracle it lasted in the fridge the past few days.

    Super-classy fine drinking experience full of roasty espresso and cocoa flavors - the oak aging added a dry, almost ethereal quality to the drink. Not too sweet - very nicely bittered, super creamy and smooth. Wow.
