    Breaking in a new glass I got for Christmas.

    Crazy how much this thing holds. It looks like a taster but manages to cradle the contents of an entire 12 oz bottle. Impressive.

    I can get it pretty easily. I've never traded before, so I'm not sure how it works, but I can get 4 packs for $16. Let me know, if you have anything good to trade.

    Sorry, no pics today. Just a lot of wii with the gf and the following brews:
    Big Sky Moose Drool
    SA Winter Lager and . . .
    3 Floyds Alpha Klaus.

    Maybe, it's the noob in me, but 3 Floyds can do no wrong!:D

    Just asked the bartender to pour me whatever. She hands me the beer, I take a sip and say, "Anacortes Klosterbier". She's all "damnit!". I say, "I could recognize this beer in a dark alley. Which I could, it's a very tasty Black Lager.
