    Good Morning BA
    I'm circling back to another of my Maibocks that has been patiently waiting whilst I reduce the hop stash.

    No, it's not a bomber, my HB krug is only .3L. If there were a Trader Joe's closer than 100 miles from here, I'd be buying more of this. I'm hoping to grab some Feldschlosschen Maibock today while shopping. Drink well today Advocates.

    No work today. Prepping for a big adventure, and starting off with some Resin.

    Nice! What vintage is that? Don't see the hops on the shoulder of the bottle so I'm guessing somewhere around 2013-2015?

    Good after from Namibia! Arrived from an overnight flight from Germany without any sleep. Figured the beach and a beer would fix everything. Cheers all!

    Happy Friday BA's

    Already made a trip to the local title / license bureau to get one of my newest boats "water legal"...what a hassle! Got the Alacrity titled and registered though, so soon she will be in the water!

    In the meantime, there are more chores and beer!

    Well BA's, I guess the whole 4-20 thing can be productive after all. There was some serious hardware being flaunted yesterday, and actually made The Staff's job quite difficult :rolleyes:. Even had to reference the archives for repeats and close calls! Could go a couple routes...vintage, proper, vintage-proper. Hmmmmm...it's time for the Glass of the Day Awards!

    GotD:
    Someone has been on a role lately, and his name is @FBarber . 3 awards, 2 of them being GotD's in one week :eek:...! Cheers and congrats again my friend for this wonderful and proper Vitus goblet.
    2nd: Even with Stein Club Sunday's being 5 months away, you all know I can't let a new-to- @Tripel_Threat stein go unnoticed without an award :). Let the countdown begin!
    3rd: Proper enough and a thing of beauty, the bronze going out to the king of Falstaff, @RonaldTheriot for this gem!

    Honorable mentions go out to @StoutElk_92 for this fun little French Jelly glass used appropriately, and to @thebeers for a nice vintage Schmidt's flute. Both of which, on any other day may have very well received higher placements.
    Cheers everyone, and I will see you all soon!

    GotD.

    Good morning BAs! Running a bit late today - overslept, then after the Y had to get tires and an oil change, so today's New Breakfast Beer is New Brunch Beer:



    Thanks Michael! A sixer of these could really sneak up on a guy!

    A flight of 4 6oz beers, all unusual, all very good. The 5th glass was my lady's drink. The beer with spelt was the most "normal" of the lot. I like this place.

    Cheers everyone! This is a rock solid hefe from my regional Cortland. Excellent appearance. Turbid, banana yellow with a slight orange blush. Fat uniform white head that lasted and clung but did fall completely. Nose is banana and clove with plenty of spice. A light herbal form hop that is barely a whisper and crackery malt. Drinks with a hint of citrusy tartness form yeast and a firm banana peel. Not that overly ripe banana or bubblegum flavor. Soft and graceful middle with earthy mild clove and just prickly bubbles. Crisp, clean and smooth. No alcohol on the palate. Playful spice mingles with those bubbles in the finish and a hop bitter is perfectly balanced. You don't even notice it .

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    You know how I raved about elicottville's blood orange hefe last year? Well I did, even though it had an addition, and I think Cortland should call them up and say that they made a hefe just as good. :D

    Have a nice day please and how should cook a brisket?

    Great stab at the NE-style from Old Nation Brewing! First great attempt from any MI brewery IMO.

    left the house now. not sure if there's a date on it, but, by memory, pretty sure i bought that case in 2009. what i do remember precisely was the cost. $27.75 out the door (included tax & CRV). i should've got more. Obsidian was the same price too.

    Ok, so maybe even pre-hop bottles. Nice! Still a great deal at the current $36 out the door per case, in my opinion. Deschutes has been nothing but great to me all of these years :). Cheers!

    Magic Rock: Human Cannonball.

    Had a few of each now, this is my preferred of the two. The DIPA just slightly over TIPA, but both are insanely drinkable for 9% and 11%

    Very juicy! Tastes fantastic, but could use a tad more of that "hop" bite to it! It's almost too smooth (if that's even possible)
