    Greetings all!

    Hapkin, a Belgian strong pale ale.
    Sunny and cold afternoon. I think I’m going for a walk after that one...

    Good day BAs! Today's New Breakfast Beer is from Ellicottville Brewing in NY, not that far away.

    Beautiful low 60s morning...clear, bright and breezy. The dogs have been walked and fed. Jr. Z is off to work. Coffee time!

    Poured at 57 degrees. Ringing in at 11.7% abv and 27 IBUs. The cinnamon has backed off (which in my book is a positive), and the coffee and vanilla compliment the base and bourbon barrel notes. Perhaps my favorite of the Brewer’s Reserve Series.

    Have a fantastic Friday y’all, and Cheers!

    Good morning BA
    I've been accumulating Belgian style strong beers in the fridge for a while, and today, I'm going to start reviewing them...
    [​IMG]
    First up, Hitachino Nest Beer XH, a Belgian Strong Dark Ale aged in distilled sake barrels. Good, but slightly tart. Not my ideal flavor profile, but the bottle is three years old.

    Six twelve hour nightshifts start tonight, so I'll be back with a pre-nap closer. Cheers all!

    Have a good Friday. Slept for a good amount last night, woke up at 11AM to my cat Bo throwing up AGAIN(on the carpet this time), and then they were waiting for me to get up and feed them the canned foods. They are righting in the kitchen again. I have to go to the gas station soon, and get the e training done for work and get a password and login made for myself; so I can get on the 40+ hour schedule. Wonder how they are going to deal with the 10 PM curfew in Ohio.

    Do any of you ever grab an old classic you haven't had in a while and think "Why the heck do I not drink this more often?" That was my first thought when I started quaffing this Schneider Weisse Aventinus. I'll admit, it was a bit aged when I picked it up this week, but it's still fantastic. The 8.2% abv gives it a nice warmth. G. Schneider & Sohn makes the worlds best wheat beers. I wished more craft beer breweries made these. Cheers folks!

    [​IMG]


    Yes, this is bit hokey, but if you have an appreciation for classic movies, this song from Holiday Inn by Bing Crosby resonates this time of year.

    The Chief Public Health Officer of Canada presented Covid 19 modelling projections for the end of the year today and shit is not looking particularly rosy. So, I did a big beer run that might be my last trip to a store until things improve dramatically. Got thirty eight different beers in varying quantities and filled a good portion of a RAV4 with the back seats down. F-it, most of this stuff will age well at least in the intermediate term or longer. The stuff that won’t age I’ll drink first. Simple. It will be online delivery ordering for the foreseeable future.

    Starting off with a Fuller’s Vintage Ale 2020, which I should and will age, but I can never resist having a couple while relatively fresh. As usual, the beer is 8.5% ABV. It is 40 IBU and is made with Target, Jester and Godiva hops. I’m enjoying it very much now but it will improve. Cheers.

    Drinking my last can of Surly Furious IPA. This thing is wafting from the glass right now with huge fresh red grapefruit and citrus notes, a nice resinous pine tree bitterness and wonderful light toasty amber malt backbone. Great beer that I plan on getting again sometime. Cheers all! :fire:

    Metallica is probably still my favorite metal band overall, at least from the 80's. I like some of the later stuff too, just not as much

    This is my favorite beer from one of my favorite Georgia breweries. This is one heck of a drinkable beer. If you every get a chance to try it, I whole heartedly recommend it. It's a little more nutty tasting than a classic Vienna Lager. The Beer Connoisseur rated it a 97. I found it long before BC rated it.
