    I'm having this too at this exact moment, and I concur with it be a little hot. Booze has some sting at the end of it. Stellar beer though.

    After a long day at Hershey Park with my girl and her fam, sat down with my first Lost Abbey brew, Gift of the Magi. I have to say, I'm a kind of underwhelmed by this, especially given how revered this brewery seems to be (maybe Biere de Garde's just aren't my thing? Another first tonight). It's not bad by any means, but nothing to write home about. I'm anxious to try something else from LA that will really blow me away...any suggestions?

    I'm a big fan of Bjork but I've never tried an Icelandic beer until tonight, Icelandic Toasted Porter- Einstök Ölgerð. Its actually an American porter but hey, its still from Iceland and its quite tasty!

    Attended a family gathering tonight and enjoyed a couple of brews. Red Hook 8-4-1 from 2010 and a recent Williamsburg Alerwerks Cafe Royale. Red Hook was meh....CR was excellent.

    We had flurries this morning in Bergen County.
    I am begging for a big storm. I want to break out my new snowblower.

    I think he is actually wacking the tree. Looks like he is tugging on a branch.

    I tried Hop Stoopid for the first time tonight, tried Brown Shugga few weeks ago and tried Cappuccino years ago, equally unimpressed . . . I must be missing something, so I'm just going to give up on Lagunitas as I'm clearly not a fan, hugely overrated thus far.

    Okay... This is awesome. Oak Aged Bretta is better, but I'll be damned if it isn't close. Meets the hype.

    I don't know if anyone rates lagunitas that highly. Their biggest strength is that they have a bunch of solid offerings and are quite affordable.
