    Maybe in the Spring, when the temps aren't so brutal.

    Divisional game queued in the background. Great games (IMO) yesterday.

    I wanna get the word out on the brewery, Element Brewing Company, too. Follow the link and hit the menu tab to bring up their beer and distribution info. I'm not, like, affiliated or anything, BTW, I'm just sayin' that as a general advocacy-thing. On the (BA) site, their three "core" beers (Dark Element (previously Dark Matter), Extra Special Oak (ESO), and Red Giant) don't have a lotta reviews, but they're really good beers.

    Heh. I bought the "trifecta" this past weekend:
    [​IMG]
    Last night was Dark Element. Later today will be their ESO...

    But for now, back to the Red Giant.

    And the game... :)

    Peace!

    Just got back from the weekly Blues Brunch at Empire Brewing Company in Syracuse, where a new beer of theirs called Local Grind (a 7-something% ABV brown ale brewed with locally roasted coffee) went pretty damn well with some Belgian waffles there. It was really a very solid brown ale, with lots of good, fresh coffee character.

    Myrcenary is a helluva beer. I've had 3/5 and of those 3, I'd choose Myrcenary!

    This is one bad ass motherfucker. Something's just not quite right with it though - too sweet. But very good. Really liking my new CCB glass too. Cheers everybody!

    Nice to see stores arent limiting numbers of Blacknote! Four 4-packs! How much of it hit distribution? I heard they brewed a ton of it.

    Who said he didn't pick it up AT BELLS ?
    I wouldn't think he picked up that much outside of Michigan, but what do I know.

    Starting the day off with this one. My first Flanders Red. Not really what I was expecting. I certainly prefer Lambics and Gueuze's.

    Someone recently told me that the brewery only sold Black Note in large bottle formats during its release. I guess I was just assuming that was true information and thus he got this off a shelf in a bottle shop. I obviously dont know though.

    Doing a little cellar cleaning; getting rid of some JV beers to make more room for more varsity beers.

    I also heard the 4 packs were only going to be $25. Again, this is all here say. I hope this makes it to SC, although I doubt it will.

    Drinking my last Breakfast Stout, it's cold and icy outside, it sucks.

    Pyramid Thunderhead IPA. It's a nice APA - except it's 67 IBUs and 6.7%?! Sure doesn't taste it...o_O
