    This BBPt5 is getting even better as it warms up... Really nice balance while still having strong bourbon notes.

    I'm drinking this tonight as well. The Whole Foods in Milwaukee seemed to have lots of it.

    Well it doesn't have to go far! I'd have to say BBPt5th is my fave of any BBA beer... Just my opinion. Glad to see a good BA hooked up another with a spectacular brew! :)

    Sam Adams night so far: A maple pecan porter (decent but no maple flavor I could taste), a Double Agent (sipping now, and I must say this is quite tasty), and one of the new-New Albions on deck. Also have a case of fresh Ruthless Rye chilling which I probably won't be able to resist cracking in to.

    Its a one and done tonight with a relatively lighter offering, Sam Adams Noble Pils. This is definitely tasty, although I wouldn't mind being able to compare it to SN Summerfest when it comes out. I kinda forget how that one tastes.

    Yards Brawler might be my favorite session beer. Tastes exactly like a soft pretzel. This should close out the night for me.

    Last call for me. Aptly and specifically chosen:

    Stillwater's Of Love and Regret - to tap off a night of celebrating love and surely a morning of regret. Gotta love that beer label. Stillwater is really one of my favs. makes such great beers and the labels are all dyn-o-mite. Really love everything about this "brewery" - and any chance i get to use this amazing glass too!!!
