    I made that shit! My first batch of all-grain. It's an IPA. Nothing extraordinary, but its a good, simple IPA. And I'm super proud of myself.

    First was a draft Rye-on-Rye/Narwhal mix (the b&t fell out). What a DELICIOUS mix.

    Next is Tree House Brew Co.'s That's What She Said milk stout, which has retained its flavor and carbonation beautifully since the growler was opened Monday.

    A wonderful evening for beer.

    Do not tempt me. I believe the last can I have in my fridge is a early 2011, or late 2010.. Been just shuffling it around the fridge, and it's made two moves.

    I still have no idea why this salty, heavenly meat has not spread across America.

    I had NO idea Drake's was a regional snack item though. Wish someone told me. :mad:

    Split one of those Monday night with Knapp85...it was one of those "fist pump" moments. Awesome beer and I enjoyed it more than the 2011 which surprised me. (!!!!)

    1) Because those of us in the Soprano state want to keep it here.
    2) I will throw in some Devil Dogs as an extra

    Started with this tonight , green flash double stout. Served too cold. Had an odd sweetish roast to it. More like a milk stout. Did not love it.

    [​IMG]

    Then I had this Bells brown. Not a huge brown fan but it was good. The bar has a keg of hop slam in the cellar but will not let me know when it will be tapped.

    Watching the flyers try to hang on.

    Enjoy

    ....the only saving grace for that can is to call it some sort of mini-growler and have fmccormi work his magic by coming up with a great hybrid name for it :p (A half growler called a "Howler" was freakin' awesome, I'm gonna start using that!!) Tomorrow, afternoon, it won't be called "lunch", it'll be called f'n lunch or "Funch".

    Just when I thought this can couldn't look any worse:

    Odd smell like a weird maple syrup. Odd taste kinda just like watered down log cabin syrup which is an abomination but still tasty I guess. Can't wait for the sap to run...

    Wait, is Tripel Hop in stubbies now? If so, has this hit the U.S. (in stubbies) already?
