    Awesome as always! Think Belgian Pale Ale meets Dom Perignon with the best of both, absolutely exquisite!

    OOOO vegan! That sounds good! Is it silly if I ask do you eat vegan all the time(as I know some do it for diet or a life style choice if you know what I mean)

    About to crack a BCBS for my dog/best friend Bo. He is going to pass away tonight after 17 great years. No better way to celebrate a long sweet life.

    I can't get Palate Wrecker here unless I'm driving through your area (which I will actually be tomorrow). Checked the Green Flash website and there's nothing available within 100 miles of me. (Do I smell a trade coming on???? ;))

    Not at all man. My wife is vegan (minus the occasional cheese...so I guess technically a lactovegetarian) so I eat vegan/vegetarian a lot of the time. But I also love meat. I pretty much keep meat out of the house and eat it when we go out. I really appreciate vegan food and cooking, but damn I love burgers and a good steak!

    My sweetheart likened it to a cup of coffee made with seawater. Sounds good to me.

    If you really wanted me to drink it out of the can, you shouldn't have sold me such a nice glass...

    I want to be a smartass and say TWO bottles of DeuS with the hope of getting laid...but I won't. (The kids have her super pissed off tonight!!) - Fist pump to your grandparents, that's really great! :) Back then, the majority of marriages lasted, any more, it seems to be the exception rather than the norm unfortunately. Your grandparents are rock stars!

    I'm up to any suggestions for a good 20th Anniversary beer!

    Hahahaha, if there's a possibility for IP then I'd be down. Palate Wrecker should be somewhere around $13-15, how much does Hopslam go for?

    Q: how many Jai Alai cans can fit into a Hill Farmstead (Belgian-style) glass?

    [​IMG]

    A: Roughly 1.5. I thought I had read this glass could hold the contents of an entire bomber, but apparently not. Looks to be closer to 17 oz capacity.

    Sorry for your loss, going to be a difficult night I'm sure. Seventeen years is an awesome gift though, still too short!

    Cheers to Bo!

    Saw a sign today, "be the person your dog believes you to be". My thoughts are with you- no better friend than a dog.

    So sorry to hear that...our dogs make such an impact on our lives. It's awesome that you were able to enjoy 17 great years. Every beer I drink tonight will be for Bo!!! I'll hug my furry kids a little tighter tonight.
