Now up DDH All Citra Everything, thanks @CanConPhilly, cheers!
I loved it, but I love cherries and chocolate. It is worthy.
You want a bottle, beer mail me and I'll send you one. I can pick it up tomorrow and ship it Friday.
Ah, cool beer after work...
Wilkes Barre Wegmans has a good selection, if you are interested. I always pick up some Yard’s when I pass through.
Totally off the reservation now, with more non-proprietary glassware...
Tanto in a teku!
Watching Sunshine on Prime...
Requires some initial suspension of disbelief, but otherwise pretty compelling so far...

Do you ever get looking at other posts and forget to post your beer?, yea me neither.
Mosaic cryo hop edition. This was awesome! Great head retention and thick soapy lacing on the glass. Aromas and flavors of big tangerine, lemon, grapefruit, peach, pear, pineapple, passion fruit, mango, melon, blueberry, citrus peel/zest, green pepper, and pine hops; with moderate cracker, white bread dough malts; and herbal, floral, grassy hop earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus peel, herbal, floral, grassy, peppery bitterness on the finish. Medium-high carbonation, medium body, and moderately crisp finishing. Balanced bready/grainy malts and sticky hops in the mouthfeel; some resins. Moderate increasing bitter/carbonated dryness, no hop astringency. Very drinkable, not overly aggressive, 6%. Very vibrant, dank, earthy, and fairly juicy hop complexity; nice bready malt/oat backbone, with no residual sweetness. Liked this more than the base beer. Not as soft on mouthfeel, and more dank/earthy/resinous overall. Awesome mosaic showcase as expected. 4.1
Tequila BA Tripel + Gooseberry sour. This was very nice. Great head retention and thick soapy lacing on the glass. Flavors of big lemon, lime, peach, plum, cherry, berry, pear, apricot, pineapple, mango, melon, red/green apple, red grape/wine, tequila, toasted oak, hay, straw, and grass; with moderate honey, agave, candi sugar, toasted bread malt sweetness; light notes of peppercorn, oaken vanilla, musty funk, and yeast earthiness. Similar/muted aromas. Light fruity/lactic tart, fruit tang, and yeast/oak spiciness on the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full body; very creamy/bready malts; light slickness, acidity, tangy fruit, and oak tannins in the mouthfeel. Lightly increasing tart/tangy dryness, no cloying. Minimal warming 9.9%. Dangerously smooth drinking. This is one of the most unique things I have ever had. Definitely more of a Belgian Strong Golden than anything. Got better as it warmed up. Very rich flavors with balanced fruity yeast, malts, gooseberry, and tequila barrels; with solid wild characteristics in the background. Bottled 4/21/2017. 3.88
Good evening, all! Traveling again this week, this time on my way to Ohio. I took a little side trip through southern Michigan and scored some M-43 at a little roadside liquor store, then picked up some ZD in Indiana. (There's a great liquor store next door to the motel. How cool is that?) Now kicking back with an M-43, paired with Pawn Stars and potluck from my cooler: sundried tomato wrap, with hummus, smoked ham, and cheese. MUCH better than it sounds.
Not only do I sometimes forget to post my beer pic but I forget where I am. How the hell I survived all these years I have no idea.
Attending a wedding in Wilkes Barre this weekend. No doubt I will make a fool of myself at some point.
How is life man? Still on the road?
Stone Idolatrus IPA up now. Hade a few Watermelon Margaritas with dinner & then a few brews at Columbus House Brewing. When I left there Arkansas was winning WTH Hawgs????
No, unemployed but enjoying a summer for once in a long time.
Well then, thank you very much @beermanben !! Much appreciated !
Working on my beef and veggies soup:
FX Matt's wasn't the only long-standing regional brewery to re-invent itself as a micro-brewer or craft brewer. But I always thought they pulled it off quite well. Mid 80's, they came out with Saranac, like maybe a year after Sam Adams arrived here. That was a 1-2 punch to the beer scene around Albany. (with assist from Catamount from VT, and Wicked Pete's from nowhere really). We had already got hip to craft beer by Wm. Newmans Brewing. This was great ! You go to a public event, there'd be a Coors or Miller stand, but now there'd also be a Saranac truck or stand. Those were good days. Something was happening.
