    As someone born in Baltimore and growing up on the Chesapeake....I don't understand your usage of crab at all.

    Solid beer though....

    This is nuts how good this is...although, I'm jealous of the dude drinking Hopslam. One of the very few things that Colorado cannot provide.

    The day started with picking up 2x Deschutes The Abyss on the way to work ,
    and after a pleasant days work , a Guinness Draught to start , followed by a Rogue Chocolate Stout ,
    and the closer will be a Granville Is Imperial Chocolate Stout

    Nightcap while watching these analysts bitch about who should and shouldn't have gotten into the baseball HOF.

    Started the night off with this beautiful Colab between the Lost Abbey and New Belgium...
    I loved every sip...

    Followed it up with this very enjoyable ale from 2008...
    As I drink this beer I am listening to this oldie but goodie, the video to this song is awesome, hand pumped cask ale? I guess the 80's weren't that bad afterall!!

    Earlier had a Two Bros Northwind (Good brew. "Easy drinkin" imp stout similar to Sam Adams's, Samuel Smith's, or Old Raspy.) Then it was a Rodenbach. (Just the right amount of sour to make it interesting and refreshing. One of those brews that need to be tried. ) And now Green Flash Imperial IPA. Very similar to Hop Stoopid, though a bit more bitter, (Maybe because this bottle is only two months old and the Hop Stoopid I get is ?? months old). Once again Green Flash does what they do best, brew a perfect textbook example of a beer style.

    Is the Mo Betta Bretta better than the New Belgium Brett Beer? Btw great song; have you heard the Neil Diamond version?

    Am I missing something ironic here?! They are all drinking beer...I'm so confused! Maybe it's because I was born in '85. Those "old people" make no sense to me. On a side note I like this song probably more than I should.

    I never got the chance to try New Belgium's version, this one is really good tho, I also like the fact that its not super expensive. Yea, the Neil Diamond version of Red Red Wine is good but UB 40's take on this song always makes me want to keep drinking more and more, haha!!

    You know whats crazy too? I have been to Bend, OR BEFORE I started drinking craft beer! Well, I did see the Dead Kennedy's there though!

    But still as I believe I had said before, ever place that I had visited or lived NOW has great beer or is starting to! Wyoming, Oregon, Virginia, etc. I missed out!
