    Greetings all, currently drinking Maximus, along with its little sister « Sumpin » is my beer of choice from Lagunitas, their IPAs at least.

    My neighbor knocked on my door at 8pm with a bottle of Buffalo Trace, and I’ll always honor a vet, so we started drinking. :stuck_out_tongue:

    Over time drank these along the way -

    Drinking a Goose Island Oktoberfest, my first new GI pour and Oktoberfest for 2020.

    It's a pretty good offering, full write-up to be provided in the NBS thread.

    1978 is the featured year later this morning on Saturday Morning Flashback. Here are a few songs you probably won't hear on the show.






    Best debut album of the year, one of the best ever

    This may be my favorite beer to drink with breakfast! Last week I discovered that the best craft beer bar in town, which is in beautiful downtown Green Bay, WI, now opens at 11am on Saturdays. The bar traditionally opened late in the afternoon on Saturdays, when I usually am deep into my WBAYDN Saturday session at home, so it was always better to just stay home. This is going to be quite a day!

    Mrs. Z just told me that her girlfriend is bringing the pastries to us, so I’m going to join @GreenBayBA and drink a Peche Mortel:

    [​IMG]

    Bottled 3/6/17. Poured at 58°. Never disappoints. I hope to get more tomorrow at the liquor store in Seminole.

    Mrs. Z asked me to skip today’s bottle share, so what’s a boy to do? Say, “ok honey.”, and stay home and brew a small batch of IPA. Cheers and have a safe Saturday y’all!

    Good morning BA
    I'm digging into my mix six of Oktoberfest beers...
    [​IMG]
    Bottle is coded 167T which translates to June 15th 2020 should the import freshness police inquire. Drinks more like a slightly bitter Maibock than a traditional festbier at 6.3%, but it's a delicious, (relatively) fresh import lager.

    I'm off to watch my daughter play lacrosse this morning in the rain and hopefully not in thunderstorms. Bitburger festbier and NBW await my return.

    Cheers all and enjoy your Saturday!

    Sat August 1
    3 New beers this week, 2 local 1st reviews of Carton, made with local ingredients, all exceed my expectations

    Battle of Monmouth | Carton | 5.9% | Keller
    4.36
    /5 rDev +6.1%
    look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
    1st Review. If Hamilton has not yet woken your views of people's pre-Constitution appetites, perhaps this ancient recipe Keller will. Naturally, it's brewed of fresh Jersey origins that could have been produced in 1776. Courtesy of Carton, my hometown brewer.
    a) As with recent Carton beers, mounts a creamy white lasting, lacing head over over a golden slight haxed body with loosely coordinated champagne like bubbles.
    s) Honey, orchard, earthy, yeast. Bright Germanic hops.
    t) Honey dominates but suitably tempered by the lemon zest, peppery, clean, grassy hops. Great food or afternoon beer, great conversation beer. A shame to enjoy by oneself unless over a really great meal, book, idea sketch, photo edit, or contemplation.
    f) Peppery and yeasty, clean, fresh, wine like.
    o) Another great reflection of our terroire, a cradle of American rights and independence.
    Wedge Issue | Carton | Atlantic Highlands | 8.2% | DIPA
    4.2/
    5 rDev 0%
    look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4
    1st Review for Carton Wedge Motueka/Waimea. My 1972nd. Beer sharing / tasting has been a lovely hobby better than wine collecting/ sharing.
    a) Pours thick, pulpy like pear nectar of childhood, springs a 1 finger head that fades and laces dots.
    s) Fresh at 7 days old, sends floral greenhouse signals that would make a bee line, flowers, pine, citrus blossom, rind, perfume, cedar, less tropical.
    t/f) Follows aroma. Positively chewy on that oat flake base. Sweeter and more floral that my pref, but interesting, odd, and original. More flowers and nectar than anything else.
    o) Lovely and as different, as provocative, as its wedge siblings, or as the Carton brothers. Drink Wedge fresh, or your local brewer fresh and buy direct when you can. July 25, 2020
    Voodoo Ranger XPerimental IPA | New Belgium | 6.6% | IPA
    4/5
    rDev +4.2%
    look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
    14th Review. Possibly my favorite Ranger to date, tho nothing new, just straight, fresh, big Citra brew.
    a) Over a clear deep amber body spots a one-finger head with lots of retention and lace.
    s) Fresh, large, citrus and tropical fruit. with dank hops, grass, herbs, cracker malt.
    t) Follows and nicely dry. Adds flowers, and dry earthen path and grass. Smooth, balanced, inviting, w nice earthly, tangy, peppery finish.
    f) Smooth, easy, fresh, clean, peppery.
    o) My favorite of Voodoo.

    You can never go wrong with this movie, and beer.

    Andy Dufresnes, and this colossal prick for a prison guard, « Clancy Brown ». One of my also preferred actor. I love when he kicks this ginger asshole that always bait Andy in his cell. MOFO deserved nothing less.

    Bottled on 12/02/19 and it's been sitting in my basement and fridge since. Hazelnut is pretty much gone leaving a very mild coffee in a nice brown ale.
