    I'm celebrating my 1st Anniversary today here on Beer Advocate!! I had been poking around the site for awhile, but after purchasing my BA Mexican Cakes on this day last year, I took the plunge and haven't looked back. I guess you could say that my savings account has also taken a plunge! :stuck_out_tongue: It's been a great ride so far and I look forward to many more years. Tonight's offering is a local pecan porter by Tradesman Brewing Company. Cheers! [​IMG]

    Nah, I lit my local spots on the regular so the finder wouldn't do me much good.

    Yea, I mean if you know the distro details from an insider, it won't be of much help. I've gotten almost all of my Stone special releases from random grocery stores (that I'd have never checked) had I not used the Beer Finder, though.

    Lost Coast Raspberry Brown - maybe on paper it worked. A handful of dark chocolate covered almonds helped me see it through.

    (reused photo of same beer)

    last bottle of my friend's homebrewed, 4.5% ABV simcoe pale ale dry hopped with citra. total homerun.

    other than that, all i can tell you is "i'm chillin'," as chris rock used to say. this song has been in my head all day:

    A great old ale from Fuller's. Classy packaging.

    Insert tells ya all about the past vintages. I think I had 2010 - 2013.

    Fanciness aside, this is an ale that goes in a pint

    And before I take it to my desk, I'm capping it off.
    English ales always make me think of 'Maiden...

    While I have come to feel that Piece of Mind is my favorite album, this was the first Maiden album I bought.

    Huge in high school. Huge.

    Onward with the Carton degustation. Pretty good sour - I get a nutty (cashew) aftertaste from this from the mulberry that I'm enjoying.

    Yeah - sour in a Teku.

    It's decent. All of their brews are quite good and with $10 growler fills of any of their beers, you can't go wrong.

    Having a Dogfish Head Aprihop right now, not something I would normally buy but my buddy that works for a beer distributor gave me a bunch for free (as well as some summer coors?). Its pretty good and Im enjoying drinking a style I never would normally have purchased, can sure taste the apricots in this stuff!

    Yeah, $10 is a great deal. I haven't checked them out yet. Any high gravity brews?

    Dude, that is fantastic!

    Dig it all! Great beer, great shot ("circle fade" effect)... dogs' expressions! lol

    *noobism alert* :rolling_eyes: (*groans from the crowd*) "It's like being behind a student driver"

    I'm just throwin' this out there in general, since I've seen it before, but never asked:
    Do the ">" indicate the order of drinking, or that one beer is better than another, or can it be contextual? :confused:

    Stopped by Tired Hands for lunch today.
    Started with HopHands on-cask with lime and grapefruit puree and double dry hopped with Citra, great stuff.
    Then Plastic Magnets, IPA with no hops added during the boil, all hops are added through dry hopping.
    Finished the visit with KILNTYN, an English bitter with buckwheat.
    Now enjoying Detective Vulpez, sour with hibiscus flower and local cherries.
