    Enjoying a nice day off I fired up the grill and had some burgers for brunch. Blue cheese and bacon burgers pair well with Victory Lager.

    Cleaning up the christmas beer. This one is not what I expected. Taste like a good stout. Don't get the 11% at all. I'd be in trouble if I had more.

    Same thing I was 4 surveys ago....Yuengling Porter and Dogfish Head 60 on tap in my garage. It takes a long time to make 12 gallons go away. A little Torpedo, Founders Breakfast Stout and Centennial, and Hop Stoopid in bottles along the way.

    Believe it or not, I'm drinking the first BCBS I've ever drank in my entire life, as part of a trade. Thank you mother nature for providing 40 degree weather here in Austin to pre-chill my beer trade. Where has this beer BEEN MY ENTIRE LIFE?! If I lived up north I'd buy like, 87 cases of this per year.

    Who knew soy sauce, bourbon, and brownies would work so well? Oooh, just got a recipe idea!

    Still haven't seen it in any stores yet, but a friend dropped off two bottles for me last night, really liked it a lot actually. The addition of cherry puree was interesting.

    Bought this glass at a Goodwill and wanted to have the beer that went with it. Fast forward a couple of years and my brother went to the UK on business and brought me the beer. Tastes as good as it looks!

    Always a great beer!

    I have a question for ya: have you had the chance of having anything from Kane Brewing? (if you have posted something from them and I have missed it, I apologize in advance)

    I went to Margate with my buddy helping him with his granma's house and I was hoping the Joe Canal's had it but alas not. Just curious if you seen it in your area...

    Usually don't visit this brew in the winter, but had a craving today for a big red ale, so picked up two 22oz bombers of Bear Republic Red Rocket Ale. This is sooooo smooth. Cheers!
