    random: a guy came in who had previously ordered 1 case of each eclipse......he was carrying them all out. I should have bought some off him in the parking lot. And a girl was taking pics of her beer and instagraming them near me. I happened to do the same and noticed only one other person had tagged 50/50 in the last few minutes.....a female....left hand brewing rep.......spy!

    Got about an inch here in the upstate of SC, which is rare. Used the snow to keep my beer cool.

    $46 for a growler filled? And what size is that growler? Seems like a lot for a brand new brewery.

    Well the growler is a one time purchase, and $26 for 64 ounces of a 8.6% draft is not a great deal but not a rip-off either. That's like $8.50 a bomber, which many wouldn't hesitate to pay for 22 ounces of a good DIPA.

    Stopped in for a quick bite for lunch and grabbed a peeper. Nice beer and only $3 a pour.

    Enjoy

    Understandable, but damn if I don't hate it with a passion. Two reasons: 1) Nobody...NOBODY in this damn area can drive when the first flake drops. Everyone acts like they're going through a tsunami. 2) I flipped a vehicle on black ice in a big ice/snow storm, so I still avoid it at all costs.

    Some Murphy's Irish Red. My least favorite of the reds I've been sampling lately as I quest-on my Irish Red kick. Dundee is still my benchmark.

    I agree with both, but when you don't get much snow, I guess you think it's Armageddon. The black ice is terrible down here, so I won't be going out later.

    Had a Victory Yakima Glory now a fresh Ruination. The Yakima is nice for a style I'm not that into and Ruination, well, is always awesome.
