    I've got about 3 hours of free time on my hands so i figured i would dig into my last 6 pack of smitten and kill some n00bs on black ops.. just an fyi for ps3 users. if you are on and playing when double xp ends a message will pop up asking to update something.. click cancel and you'll be able to keep getting double xp until you exit out of BO or turn off the system.. ;)
    cheers!!

    I assume that was directed at me? It's a Mikkeller glass that my brother brought me home from Brussels.

    more sucks!
    All I have to say about sucks at this point in my lagunitas addiction is that they BETTER make this a year round bev soon, 'cause I'm going to go through a very ugly withdrawl when my supply dries up.
    And the latest threads about that were from april 2012 :( how can they get me addicted and then leave me hangin'?!

    Well it looks like bcbs is the beer of the day for monday. I must say that i enjoy this one much more as a starter beer than a finisher. It is too common for me to get buzzed quick and pop one of these and drink it to fast. Much better to savor the sweet sticky bourboness.
