    Good evening distinguished BAs! Had a Sucks and now enjoying a FIS. Have had this combo a few times the last week or so. No complaints at all! Cheers all!

    Finally. I can contribute to this thread. I am drinking a Long Trail Pale Ale, which to me is an absolutely perfect beer. I am drinking that while I make a pizza that I am going to top with arugula, balsamic glazed chicken thighs, grilled red onions and fresh romano. Can't wait!

    Oh and I got a Sam Smith Oatmeal Stout warming up on the counter. Nice.

    Stone Vertical Epic. It's good, but a little bit of a let down.

    It was part of a Christmas gift and "best by" July 2012. That said, it's not very good. I can't give this beer a fair shake due to the lack of freshness.

    Had a very successful trip to one of my haunts today. Bottle of Surly Smoke (will be enjoyed during the border battle tomorrow night), a Duval gift pack for one of my friends (he wanted a glass, I hope I get the beer), and a fresh 4-pack of this for me. [​IMG] They also had Chimay gift packs, I will pick one up next week...FYI tolar111.

    Started with one of these when I got home from work. Now that the holidays are done, back to only drinking beer on the weekend for me. Weekend is here!

    [​IMG]

    then my last 2011 bottle of this. Just hit DC area today so I am going to pick up a couple 4-packs of this tomorrow. Love this beer.

    [​IMG]

    now enjoying my first ever bottle of OTWOA, which is really good. Cheers!

    Nice crisp and refreshing saison at only 4.8% abv, this will be great during the summer. Two Roads looks like it will be a great addition to the CT beer scene

    Totoropanda and I are getting into the geuzes:

    2002 Drie Fonteinen Vintage: this one is really fantastic. I'd put it ahead of the 50th, 1999 and Millennium.
