    I'm drinking from a Growler of Black Tooth's Saddle Bronc Brown Ale. An English Style Brown that is tasty and has very little bitterness. I like!

    Kris Kristofferson is the man. Truely one of the unsung legends in the history of modern music.

    Sunday Funday. Enjoying this with a big breakfast. Shaking off the rust from that nasty Olde school Barleywine last night. Great day for sports too.

    It's never too early. Drinking a Terrapin Moo-Hoo Chocolate milk stout. Besides FBS and Wake n Bake, can't think of a better beer to go with breakfast.

    I'm probably going to crack open a Bigfoot 2013 to watch the Flyers game with. And then I'll have whatever Gillette stadium is offering tonight. Picture of the Bigfoot to come when I have it.

    Never too early! This may sound foreign to many here, but I'd much rather have a beer at 10AM than 10PM.

    Been a few weeks since I've had one of these.

    This turned out to be a perfect medium rare. There's some butter, salt, pepper, and cheese in the potato. The beer? Sierra Nevada Ruthless Rye. Great pairing.

    I took the tour 3 years ago...it was right after they won a gold for their small batch whiskey in those lil quarter casks...They did not have any whiskey for me to sample, unfortunately...I was digging on the Pumpkin liquor tho, using the mash from Lakefront I think?

    The countdown begins: Seven more Hopslam to go, having had one daily for almost two weeks now. Really like how this beer's character changes as it warms up... Gotta get 'present' for the remaining experience...you know?

    I could just pick up the faintest of coffee with just a touch of a sour note on the front side.....great after taste though, just lingered forever!!! IMHO this beer is a year or 2 over the hill...
