    I made that trip a half dozen times whilst living in Mankato, MN (2-1/2 hours each way). The first trip was with Mrs O in October 2014. We got in the car, I plugged in the address to the GPS, she looked at the projected arrival time (4:30 pm) and mistook that for the drive time.

    “We’re driving 4-1/2 hours for beer???!!!??”

    “No, we’re driving 2-1/2 hours for beer. And dinner, you gorgeous little minx.” Crisis avoided.

    We got to the brewery 2-1/2 hours later, she got ALL LIT UP on Dorothy’s lager, I bought 2 cases of Pseudo Sue bombers (when that was the only way to get that beer packaged - simply amazing, and obviously brewed in Decorah), then we went to eat in downtown Decorah - and the restaurant had a bomber of uber fresh Sosus. An amazing beer nerd day.

    I also made the trip in May 2015 as a sidebar to a trip to Cedar Rapids. They had Mornin’ Delight on tap. And Scorpius Morchella. I also picked up a case of Lightspeed bombers (and a mini-growler of Scorpius). *sob*

    The last trip I made was in August 2016. Drove there, picked up 2 cases of King Sue bombers, drove back home. Five hours driving, 5 minutes at the brewery. Worth every minute.

    TG is a true treasure, especially if you reside in the Upper Midwest. Glad you got to experience it.

    I have a 2017 courtesy of a generous Advocate. Saving it for the holidays. Based on what I read, it is an outstanding beer.

    Back home, DFH did an excellent job with this, IMHO. A hop bomb that’s a joy to drink.

    I didn't see that one. Sounds killer, though!

    In my scientific research, a 30 day old Two Hearted Ale lasts less than 30 minutes. Now drinking this...
    Out of this...
    For those counting at home, this is the 4th Christmas tree that has photobombed my recent WBAYDN posts. This one is new this year. Apparently, it spins.
    She never wants to hear my input on home decor:wink:

    I'm a HUGE fan of lagunitas 1 hitter series and this does not disappoint but not really what I expected. I've only had 1 other Flanders oud bruin, the Dissident so I'm not really familiar with the style. this reminds me more of a farmhouse ale but has a flavor that I can't quite put my finger on...Almost like Saki. Anyways, a fine beer that I will drinking plenty more of.


    For some reason I've had groundskeeper Willie on my mind today..

    At $10 a pack you really can't pass Bodhi down


    especially when it's this fresh

    I promised someone, I already forgot who, that I would try photobucket to see how it goes. I used it 100 years ago (probably an exaggeration) and thought I would compare it to imgur which I have been using for quite some time. So here goes.

    I tried three times but the pic would not post. Just posted the word "image."

    So here comes imgur. BTW, this beer is a little bit of a let down. The name conjures up a nice thick stout like beer. Not true. I believe the brewery releases it twice a year and I will buy a four pack each time but no more than that.

    #2, I love this beer. The cherry is an excellent addition, IMHO. I wish I’d purchased a case of this.

    Much more limited distro to AR this year, I think. I only got two bottles, but I'm going to enjoy them!

    Stopped at a beer store on my way out of Pittsburgh today. Nothing special about the place aside from the fact that they carry a few beers I can't get back home. I was surprised to find that they had a shitload of CBS. It is an incredible beer.
