    A little late to the picture show but I've been drinking up a few of the loose bottles cluttering my fridge.
    Started out with this,

    Just enjoyed my first Wake n Bake (delicious) and am now on to a Karl Strauss Wreck Alley. Another fine imperial stout.

    Southern Tier Harvest Ale. Probably a bit old, but got it in the singles rack to try. It's OK, kinda bland, but decent. And actually decent is better than how I would describe Southern Tier Pale Ale or IPA, so I guess that is good.

    Hill Farmstead Brewery Everett. Shit. I love the note on the label: Everett 1908-1939 was our grandfather's brother, Hill Farmestead Brewery rests upon the land that was once home to him and his 13 siblings...... Sort of reminds me of my own grandfather's farm, who passed away a few years ago... But my grandma still lives there, in the house that my grandpa actually grew up in....

    ...oh, and the beer is tasty as well :)

    After trying the 50/50 blend, perhaps called a...

    Heaven and Hell - jlenik & dachshunddude86
    Drainpour - Steimie
    Liquid Death - Hugonau
    f*** getting up tomorrow - scud
    Around the World in 120 Minutes - BrewStew58

    I tried each one individually. I don't believe that there's a gestalt here. The parts are superior to the blend. Oddly, the Dark Horse version (Double Crooked Tree and Plead the 5th) are as revelatory blended as they are on their own.

    Fairly certain heaven and hell is the "official" name - as I you can order them by that name at the DFH tap room in Fairfax, VA when they have both on tap.

    I had a couple of bottles of Brooklyn Winter Ale and I've moved on to Duvel. No pictures. I'm not sure if I'll have anything after this.

    What a great mouth feel and the creaminess of the nitro is just amazing. Well done!

    Loving the Fiesta Bowl, have a Deschutes Obsidian cooling in the fridge to celebrate when Oregon wins. For now, let's have some Michigan beer.

    Starting to get worn down on dark stuff already this winter, so I'm getting my hop on with a Crooked Tree IPA.
