    The world has changed indeed when you can buy a beer with the Pentagram symbol AND Runes on it! Always a plus with me! :D

    Moved one of the beer fridges and all it's contents to prepare for some tile work. I wasn't going to indulge tonight but even mild manual labor requires a thirst-quenching reward:

    Without BCBS involved, your rankings are meaningless.

    I guess the part that got past the cork had what little sweetness there was, very tart and seems cut down with water. Would be excellent on the beach.

    I didn't have BCBS this weekend, but drank one a couple of weeks ago. I'd put it in a tie with BN at #2; fresh '12 BCBS is a little harsher than I'd like.

    Fair enough. As long as BCBS is in the rankings.

    Still Mr. K.'s best beer after all these years, now made epic in affordable 11.00 4paks (used to be 25.00 for a waxed, swingtop liter bottle IKYN). Soooo good with suuuuucch a deceiving alcohol flavor, as in lack of one.

    Loved this vintage fresh but with a year on it this has become very well rounded.

    Cheers!

    My "average IQ phone" is not working so well. So, my fellow BA's, please use your imagination for tonight's WBAYDN. Tonight I'm have an FFF Pride And Joy, followed by FFF Robert The Bruce. Seriously amazing beer and amazing brewpub! I wish you much hoppiness, fellow BA's! Prost!

    First a homebrew apa. Then another homebrew apa, now I homebrew apa.
    I will probably finish the night with a hopslam though, maybe something in between. I don't work until close tmrw and my homebrews are light on the abv so there ya go.

    Listening too some good music today. Mathrocky.
