    Aw man, I'm sorry, that's not what I'm sayin.... from one Michigan guy to another. I absolutely love the beer of Michigan when I lived there (Sault Ste Marie). There ain't nothin' like some Two Hearted, there ain't nothing like some KBS, good Lord, man. You're good with me, I'm sorry for miscommunicating what I was really trying to say. What an absolutely awesome state of beer! You know Michigan has one of the best beer states of the Nation! At the same time, Sucks actually hasn't shown up yet here in AK for this season, I guess all I'm saying is that its easy for most people to post Lagunitas Sucks in this thread for a "free like." And actually I'm kinda peeved that Lagunitas skips out on your state .... not sure if you know why is that? But in my opinion, that's kinda messed up. Michigan is one of the best beer states in the Nation, by all means they should distribute there.

    "TL;DR" material ahead...

    Through the looking glass beer glass :wink:: Ruminations on Wild Card Weekend...
    Colts game was my fave in terms of both excitement and outcome, even though I won't get to see Indy in Denver next weekend, and I'd be surprised if they survive their trip to NE. No biggie, but it woulda been nice to see Peyton get some payback - no, not a Denver fan, but definitely a Peyton fan. He's one of the all-time greats.

    As a Steeler fan, I didn't mind seeing the Bungles get beat down by SD, even though it botched my pick. Also, Ken Whisenhunt (SD's OC) is a former Steeler coach, so I'll always be partial to him. Figure SD will represent in Denver, but I can't imagine Peyton letting them get the best of his Broncos next weekend.

    Eagles game was pretty tense, and the outcome was not what I'd picked, but no biggie here either - the Saints'll probably be more competitive than Philly would've been in the next round anyway. Side note: Andy Reid's current and former teams both made the playoffs and then were eliminated in short-order. The albatross remains around his neck, eh? Poor guy.

    Most irritated by GB's loss, even though I picked SF and they are the better team. It was so close. I'm not a GB fan per se, but I've always kinda liked them since the Holmgren/Favre days. I also do not want to see SF succeed - even though there's a lot to like about their team since Harbaugh came in. I regard them as a long-time nemesis (Giants fan :sunglasses:) - hopefully either Carolina or the Seahawks knock them out. Plus, if they make it to the SB and win, they'd tie my Steelers for the most SB wins, and I wouldn't like that at all. Last year was tough enough, rooting for another team I dislike, the Ravens, just to keep SF away from Pitt's record.

    That concludes this impromptu ramble *scattered applause*

    Final pour:

    Peace out, folks!

    Rough Draft Eraser IPA

    It's from San Diego, but not at all a "San Diego IPA"... carbonated and light, with more of a malt backbone. Interesting brew that's worth a shot if you locate it.

    Quite the task to finish a 64 ounce growler of Blackout Stout in one night but I am up to the challenge. Have a good book, Clash of Kings, (2nd in the Game of Thrones series) to go with it and some tunes while my wife watches Downton Abbey :confused:

    Wish I would've read the "White Chocolate possibly infected" thread before cracking this one- would've helped level set expectations on the taste profile...

    Well, that Piercing Pils made my guts turn acid like Woodchuck cider does. No more of that tripe. On to better.

    Drinking for the first time...is this the anniversary double dry hopped? Want to make sure I review the right beer.


    It's tasty.

    Listening to....

    It's all good I just think you're way off base on why people are posting the Sucks pics. It's been gone for so long and is now here and a wonderful beer! Speaking of that, it is here, I just haven't been able to get out beer hunting for it yet unfortunately... It disappears so quickly from the shelves that I hope I'm not too late... :slight_frown:
    IMO, I don't think people are posting the Sucks for likes, but who knows. I'm just saying I would be excited enough to post it as well if it was in my glass. :slight_smile:
    Have a good one Adam!

    I really think you're right! Been so great to see Sucks return as well as see Dirtwolf on the shelves from time to time. Our options are really opening up. Great time for us to be craft lovers these days. LOVE IT! :slight_smile:
    Enjoy man!
