    It's a solid BBA Wee Heavy. Way better than Backwoods Bastards IMO.

    What do you think of this? Drinking one atm too. I wish it was a tad sweeter. I prefer Evil Twin's version better: "Bozo Beer"

    I like it alot. It could be a lil sweeter but I do find that a little more comes out as it warms. Never had Bozo

    A little late on the Christmas post, but oh well, I'm on island time.
    Had to share the drive to our first Christmas Eve service at church. We like smaller churches, but we live in the city, so we drove 20 minutes to Waimanalo, a small community on the windward side. The church was great, in the shadows of the Ko'olau mountains, had giant sliding windows for walls, to let the cool mountain breezes in.

    This was my Christmas wrapping beer, perfect for the chilly nights (60F) here. BTW, you can still find it at select stores and on tap.

    Here's the finished product

    Here's my beer of choice from Christmas day, been holding on to this one for a little while. Great stuff, totally worth the wait.

    A little Hawaiian Christmas music for you.

    I've never heard of that beer, is it Illinois exclusive or is it popular? I'm glad somebody knows how I feel, though. It sucks doesn't it....

    When I got a 22oz of Big Bad Baptist, there was about 8 or do left and never have tried it before so I just got one to try. Well, turns out I went back yesterday (just one day later) and they were bone dry sold out :slight_frown:. I asked them if I could order more and they're going to get back to me, but I'm not getting my hopes up since it's a special release.

    The last of the 4-pack I picked up. Great seasonal that I look forward to every year. Don't know how this cellars, though, maybe I should pick up another 4-pack for science.

    My first Angry Chair Brew. So far so good! These guys know how to make a stout! On a side note it looks like you have to drink at 5:30 AM EST to get the first WBAYDN post... Going to be an early day tomorrow!

    I spent a lot of time thinking of Hawaii and wanting to go back this Christmas. I was in Kauai a year ago in December, and then the big Island in April... I couldn't stop thinking about Christmas there it's a real special place that time of the year..

    I know you weren't talking to me, but i just picked up a 4pk of that yesterday. It's reeeeeeeeally good IMO. It so Damn smooth and has a nice vanillaish maltiness flavor to it. It's definitely something that you wanna sip to take in all of the flavors, but I'd trade for it if I were you. For me in ohio, it was $19.99 a 4pk but even at that price, I find it well worth it even given the mixed reviews.

    They are in Indiana and yeah you pretty much have to go to their brewery to get it. Bottles were released at their anniversary party. They have it on tap tho and it was great

    Trillium, by...Trillium. Bought at the brewery yesterday. Pretty interesting take on a saison. Aroma was spot on, but they went a little heavy-handed on the bittering hops IMO.

    :slight_smile: For almost never stepping outside of the local Schlafly, my brother is great at gifting me beer. This is from the Victory Mixed 12. There was no date on the outside of the box, and when I opened and pulled out a Headwaters to check, "Best By 5 May 2015" or just a couple weeks old :grinning: Cheers!
