    It took me close to three years on this site but I have my first and only 5/5 brew. Double Galaxy that was tapped on 12/29 at the brewery. Everyone, be safe on the roads tonight if you are going to be out and about. Happy new year!

    Thanks to StevenSpringer (His first trade also) for this nice little surprise. This one as yet has not been added to the site, but since I don't review (I'm terrible) I'll not be adding it either. Brewery only release apparently, I had no idea what to expect here and gotta say I'm pleasantly impressed. Nice beer

    Hope everyone is enjoying their New Year's Eve festivities.

    My wife and daughter are sick, so gonna stay home tonight (the safest place to be on NYE, anyway). I cracked open some liquor... Full Sail Big Daddy J's Malt Liquor, that is, and am partaking in that while doing some projects around the house.

    Since I'm taking the tree down tomorrow, I wanted to post this pic. Not sure what happened before.

    I'm really enjoying this Sculpin, but $10.99 a bomber is crazy. If I can find this in a 6 it will become a regular I'm sure

    I also just pulled this out the oven about half an hour ago. This pie will taste great tomorrow. It's a sweet potato pie with a ginger snap cookie crust.
