    I wasn't drinking beer at that time, mistake number one. I should have cracked my growler during the game instead of afterwards - mistake number two! As a side note, my pipe dream was to see a Denver/Indianapolis Super Bowl so Manning could stick it to Irsay!!! :D Colts are out so now it's GO DENVER!!!!!

    That "BCBS vs. Central Waters BB Stout" thread inspired me to do a side-by-side review.

    But then I thought it would be more fun to just mix them together...

    Very tasty blend o' beer.

    If you're able to pull it off & I was able to come, I'd bring a Mephistopheles for you to enjoy privately as a thank you ;)

    Darn prices for the Italian bottles. I estimate about 500 to 800 dollars is what I would spend for the bottles for such an event...

    I'm picking off a few stragglers left in the fridge -- the last Great Lakes Christmas Ale, and now a bottle of Short's Pontius Pilsner. Both tasty!

    Soft pretzel, stone-ground mustard, Dutch Gouda, pepe nero. I could get used to this.

    Magic Hat's #9. Fruity and balanced, drinkable and crisp. Very possibly a perfect not quite pale ale...

    Never, ever get tired of this stuff. Hoppy, caramel malts, chocolate, brown sugar...it's got everything!

    Cheers! And psyched the Ravens put a hurting on the Colts earlier!

    I am very happy with my somewhat recent glassware acquisition.
    Ordered the week before Xmas, arrived Xmas Eve day ;)
    Ordered another with etching of all the Great Divide beer icons so my wife & I have matching snifters when we split bombers.
    $18 for both shipped to my door.

    Oddly enough, I haven't had a Yeti in it yet :confused:

    I know everyone's palate is different but I have heard too often lately to not sit on this too much longer so I didn't.

    Fuji, isn't there a place up near you that carries some Italian craft? I remember looking at an ad about this store, which I can not recall, but in this ad that was what they were boasting. Begin's with an S maybe? Hmm just can not recall...

    Local canned IIPA option. It's decent, but it's not you-know-what:
