    I got this as a 12 pack in Wisconsin over Christmas. I think they've been around since July although I might be a month off.

    This is a special beer. Rumors of it's demise are greatly exaggerated. That, or this beer was something heavenly fresh because it is damn close now.

    It might be an abrasive night for me tonight and tomorrow and the next (Dave Matthews strongly supports this message).

    So weird! Every place that does not get cold is getting cold, such as my beautiful San Diego, and here near Philly, we have no snow yet! I want at LEAST 2 feet! :D

    Found this at the Whole Foods across the street from my hotel in Boise. Made flying from mid-60s to teens and single digit temps a little less of a bitter pill to swallow.

    Drink Jai Alai....straight from the can! I implore thee, oh Beer Gods, please do not smite thy head for such an abhorrent act

    Also, listening to this new jam:

    It combines my two favorite things: death metal and dogs chasing socks! duh!

    Now onto Schlafly's Coffee Stout, wow this is worse that Southern Pecan, has a fake coffee taste and a bit on the sour side. 0 for 2 tonight so far.
