    Never thought I'd be drinking early enough to start one of these threads but here goes...
    I am gaining new respect for Flying Fish brewery. From my home state of NJ they have really upped their game lately with the Exit Series and this is the best one so far IMHO:
    So, what's in your glass today, Ladies and Gentlemen?

    I was too late to edit my post before I finished my beer...

    ...ridiculously sessionable dark lager sums up that Frankenmuth Dunkel nicely.

    The Exit Series is excellent. Flying Fish is a ery good brewery that is working its way up to excellent.

    First beer I am drinking tonight, but it is the second bottle opened. The first bottle was a 750ml of Big Mama Stout from Novabirra out of Belgium. That bottle was a gusher. The bottom of the cap had something purple growing on it and the smell was awful. It was a shame as I was looking forward to it.

    This beer has no problems.

    Drinking this in the office.

    To be honest, it was supposed to be an extra in trade, but it didn't fit in the box.

    I really like Belgian Tripels but not this one. Starts promising but finishes really dry. Definitely not in my Beers of Fame.

    I am actually going to have some SN Ruthless Rye! My buddy bought me some beer for helping him with some stuff today! What a great friend right?

    I had this Flying Fish on tap at the Pourhouse and it was yummy!

    Note to self: Do not order beer to be mailed during the winter.
    Second note to self: Do not order Rogue Voodoo Donut Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana ale (again.)

    Eh, it's not undrinkable, nor unpleasant, and would likely be better if it hadn't bubbled out from under the cap.
    It was expensive, though, and I think I like the bacon maple ale better.

    Unfortunately, I've got the flu, and had just gotten into bed when the UPS guy came. I was all tucked in, with my dog cuddled up next to me to keep me warm (I'm wearing long underwear, two pairs of sweatpants, three t-shirts, three long sleeve t-shirts, three sweatshirts and I'm still shivering.), so I'll put this aside to chug later.

    My Abrasive is on the FedEx truck out for delivery, but I'm already drinking the first in my mind. With the mid-20's temps outside, I reckon (hope) it will already be close to perfect serving temperature.

    No pic, but enjoying a couple glasses of Stone Enjoy by at Teresa's in Wayne, PA. My wife picked a good weekend for us to visit her family! This beer is awesome. Cheers!

    By the way, whole foods in Devon, PA has it on tap for growler fills.
