Very nice stuff.
Anchor’s winter warmer is excellent again this year. Cheers!
Another comped Stout from FOBAB.
Jackie O's Oil Of Aphrodite - Extra Reserve 2022
Full review in the New Beer Weekend thread. Bottom line, this is far too sweet for my preferences, not sure if I'll finish.
Now that it is the start of the Christmas season, kicking things off with two from a band named for Buddy Holly and Christmas Holly. OG recording band on the first clip, Bernie Calvert and Terry Sylvester replacing Eric Haydock and Graham Nash, the latter leaving to form Crosby Stills and Nash, the "new" lineup for perhaps their most well known song (Bus Stop being the other).
Watching Jeopardy with a Hop Load Hazy IPA from Start Line Brewing in Hopkinton, MA. Apparently the starting line for the Boston Marathon. Cheers!
I drank Honey Brown a bunch in the late 90s early 2000s under the Dundee label. Showed up a year or 2 ago under Genesee Specialty and then disappeared again. Was definitely an early stepping stone into craft brews for me. Cheers!
A few other dark treats arrived at the store today. Pretty darn tasty and local goodness.
Same here....it was got me into darker brews, out of my comfort zone....
I think Nick’s on the money. Doesn’t have the same weight to it since Genny took over the line. Still a cheap stovepipe.
At Monkish in Anaheim. Drinking TXXTH - barrel aged stout with coconut and vanilla. Insanely good! Cheers!
Found some of this here in Indiana and ended up going back for more today! This shah is great fresh, and it's great with age on it (ya'all know this already so don't mind my rambling).
Willettize me. !!
I found this one by accident looking for some other stuff today.
Pretty good. Full review on NBW. Cheers all!
Little Neck clams. Round one. I cannot compete with @BrewsOverHoes tonight (the oysters he had were to die for) but I am in my oyster season so beware.
Yes it is true that I have transitioned to wine but I thought a beer with clams was more appropriate.
I was not a big fan of last years...how does this compare?
Reminds me of a Barleywine just a little bit.
Goldfinger + Maplewood = smooth smokey maltiness. Rauchier might do Frosty some good.
Will Karen survive the cold train ride?
Dang! This Oulde Schtyle is older than the last one. My wife found this unopened bottle of Grand Marnier and it's about 22 yrs old. I dusted it off a little.. That's gonna be fun! Chairs!
Don’t have high expectations, but Go Gators regardless.
Go big, or go home. Old Rasputin and a smokey, peaty Lagavulin in the glass.
Keith Jarrett's Bordeaux Concert spinning.
Oh man, as soon as I posed this, huge lightning strike came, the big storm is finally coming, I have been waiting all day for that ha (it has been raining like two days straight now, tomorrow is suppose to clear up so that means finding a good outdoor spot to have a beer ha).
Shared - Madam Ruby’s (Simcoe fresh hop IPA). cheers!
Seeking a moment of calm as we head out to my boy's CIF Sectionals tonight. It's a special thing to still be playing ball after Thxgiving. A victory brew is resting in the reefer BA! Here we go Warriors
I liked this year’s a bit more than last year. A bit maltier to me - a good thing. Light spice. I’ll buy more for certain.
Still a Big Can.....
Round two of clams. Just one clam of 50 did not open. Not bad.
Not the easy work day I was looking for, but at least I have Monday off! Gotohold Brewery's Past the Breakers West Coast IPA
Tired Hands,”Only Void” 2022 Imperial Stout!
Boys are swimming. I'm lifeguarding. I hope they make it. Wormtown Brewery Be Hoppy. Cheers!
I can get a lot of cigarettes at a decent price so maybe my fellow inmates would be my friends.
Best Black Friday Ever!!!
So happy coffee is back in the BCBS lineup. Tasting great! Gonna pickup a few more tomorrow.
Other Half Brewing Double Nelson Daydream IPA. My son and I are figuring out how to surprise his sister, my oldest in NOLA for her 40th birthday in December. Good times are to come......
And just causally showing off an unopened bottle of Pappy in the background
Foggy window at Monkish
All of my ill family members are asleep. Gonna have a couple of beers and try to watch season 1 of American Rust.
Not a tall Can....
But still a good brew.....
Hence the “Best Black Friday Ever” and it will be opened later tonight
