    Last night since I wasn't able to post in it. I really, really loved this beer. Port Brewing rarely steers me wrong. I loved the roasty nutty flavor balanced very well with coffee and chocolate. I also got to christen my new Pizza Port baby snifter.

    Brooklyn Irish Dry Stout. BORING. I'd rather have Guinness, which I also find boring.

    My first Pumpkin Ale, great experience!
    Southern Tier Pumking: Very spicy ale with strong notes of cinnamon. Sweet grains and pumpkin backbone. Very smooth body. It's like drinking a pumpkin pie... Lovely stuff...

    A bit late as these were unopened before me and 3 of my friends consumed them all last night. One was a wine guy, another didn't drink beer at all but they all LOVED the BCBCS. We also quaffed a couple Sucks and homebrewed coffee stouts. A good time was had by all!

    Yes, it's more of a gold than the white gold apparent on the picture. I blame my poor quality Samsung phone and the omnipresent darkness this time of year. Delicious beer indeed.

    Slow morning at work

    drinking this and about to listen to some TIGERS BASEBALL!!! This felt like the perfect beer to have while taking in my first Tigers game of the year. Obviously it's a Michigan beer but also it's a perfect gateway from football and wintertime stouts to baseball and summertime IPAs. Now if only I were drinking this at the game in Florida....

    A Sam Adams night planned with my sis and bro in law. Spring Thaw pack and a six pack of Double Agent. And a six pack of anchor steam :)

    Nice! Which is your favorite? I've got the chance to trade for either one and I can't decide.

    Everton is leading Norwich, 1-0, and I just picked up this year's iteration of Pretty Things' Lovely Saint Winefride, a roasty, nutty, dark lager that I'm thoroughly stoked to welcome back into my home.

    They cropped the label this year so it no longer has the wrap-around image above, but I'm not crying.

    I think bourbon, they're all good though. Sippers. About 25 people got a taste of each so that's pretty cool.

    Flower Power, first time....man this is a treat. I know I'm new to craft beers, but I can't help but have the feeling of "what the hell was I doing with my life".
