    I picked up a growler of Troegs Mad Elf two days ago with the intention of saving it for Christmas, turns out it went a little flat! Good thing I still have a Southern Tier 2xmas left as well. Merry Christmas, couldn't be better!

    I know the owners do not tolerate such so I am sure they took care of it!

    Good question: Have any of you have a great friend who is also a fellow BA or just a lover of craft beer? I am glad to have spread the joy to my friend who also does the same.

    Got excited when I went over my wife's family's house and saw an FBS box under the tree, only until I realized that it was one of my old boxes, used to take presents over. Drinking a Moo-Hoo with my bacon and eggs.

    Sweet Jesus, it tastes as good as it looks! The tartness of the raspberries adds a whole other dimension to Berliner Weiss beers. Cheers!
