    Decided to treat myself to something nice. Sipping down a Three Floyds Baller Stout.

    So I've been holding this one for some time, waiting to share with my wife.

    Its got a great smell, full of complex funk. I told the wife this one going to have more than the NG Enigma. At first taste, it's so delicate as the notes indicate champagne-like. However, patience the taste evolves and grows into this nice funkness with a splash of whiskey on the finish. Really nice drinker, with the ABV incognito.

    Lagunitas Sucks while making some dinner. Watching some SNF and having mixed feelings about the Bears being ousted out of the playoff hunt.

    24 oz. of Celebration, poured ten minutes ago at kickoff. Redskins fan here and this is a huge game. Playing the rival Cowboys on the last game of the season, with the winner getting a playoff berth. Only the Super Bowl could be bigger.

    9ers win and the Vikings ensure us a first round bye, so what else:
    To quote Rick James: "it's a Celebration bitches!"

    Watching some SNF, kinda relieved I don't have to suffer through another Lions game for ~8 months.

    That's the old stuff, what I just had tonight. So good. I think I sent you the new one but unsure. May have still been conditioning in the bottle. Brewing a HF Arthur clone tomorrow!! No clone but using their freakin yeast and so far it smells awesome!!

    Mixed feelings here too. Sort of wanted them to lose in a way as to maybe forcing some changes and I know you know what I mean ;) Lets just see if any changes are made.

    My problem though is that I do like Lovie, but his system is flawed. Also, as a head coach he's responsible for their complete ineptitude on offense year in year out. I'm torn on whether he should be fired.

    Thankfully, not my choice to make.

    Michigan for sure, not sure if Saugatuck makes it to any other states. I would concur that its a delicious brew.

    Edit: just looked it up, available in Michigan and metro Chicago.

    I don't think Lovie is going anywhere. Weird year, hard to start 7-1 and not make the playoffs.

    You are right. We've seen what we have in Lovie. It's just not enough.

    So, I just realized that today is officially 2 years on BA for me. Apparently I'm celebrating with some wings and a Brooklyn lager...
