    Nothing but cold green tea and grape flavored water for me, 3 days in a row now. Got someone's nasty sick germs flying home from Vegas on Christmas, and have been battling it ever since. All this the day that I buy 4 cases of terrapin beer. Someone hates me.

    Good evening BAs! Enjoyed a Sucks and now having my first of the latest FIS release. Tasting incredibly well. Aged a few of these and while 1 year was still tasting well, the 2 year had lost a bit imo. I think this is best fresh and that's the plan I'm sticking with. Cheers all!

    Back home, and enjoying more of the Tired Hands Domo. This beer is the real deal...

    I can't say no to a black rye saison aged in red wine barrels and Weyerbacher Insanity barrels, and then blended. Very similar to CD4, maybe slightly better :eek:.

    Cheers!!!

    You're very welcome! Glad to hear you enjoyed it, it's a fantastic example of the great beer Jester King can make.

    I'm having some Diesel fuel to start the night and celebrate my Niners clinching the #2 seed in the playoffs!

    Goose Island Night Stalker, one hell of a hoppy imperial stout. Glad I cracked this bottle sooner than later, as suggested—delicious!

    I have been out of ZD for a while and have been busy, too lazy for a FFF run. My buddy tut2528 tossed a couple my way on christmas day. Must make time for a ZD run here in the near future.

    Old Raspy XIV... one of the first beers in my cellar, waxed with paraffin which worked surprisingly well.

    This is really damn good. Listening to my boy Leo...

    I wasn't hugely excited to try this one, but it's a really nice and hoppy IPA.

    For my second round, I hit up Russian River with the family. Had a Dead Leaf Green and a Janet's Brown. Went home and lit up the firepit because it was stupid cold. Had a Pyramid Chai Wheat and a Snow Cap. The wheat was....interesting. The Snow Cap was better than I remember.

    I probably have one more in me before the night is done.

    My second time in less than a week with this, and I'm glad I have 5 more in the fridge.
    I'm probably buying a case of this stuff.
    Underrated imo.
