    Tonight with guests I am opening a fresh growler from Beachwood. It is their Amalgamator IPA.

    Cheers....

    Watching the second half of Michigan basketball and sipping on this:
    [​IMG]

    Just read a quote from Bell's production manager John Mallett about Hopslam: "you know what it smells like? It smells like your cat ate your weed and then pissed in the Christmas tree."
    I think that about sums it up. I wonder if he was speaking from experience? I hope that never happens to my cat/weed/Christmas tree. I'll just smell this beer and take his word for it.

    Cheers!

    Haha...one of the beers that got me in to craft. I can see how it might not be very impressive for a veteran but will always have a spot in my heart. Cheers!

    I had a pint with lunch last week, I really like this recipe. I hope Pat and Shawn keep it in rotation from time to time.

    Cheers....

    Wanted to start tonight with something different. Searched around the fridge and found this. It is a collaboration with DFH so I knew it would fit the bill, yep....it's different. Not sure what to make of it.

    I can see how this would be a good beer to get you into the game. Just not for me. Too much of an artificial feel for me.

    That's a sexy glass on top of being a delicious beer in it.

    Can't seem to attach my picture. This interface is a little weird for me.
    I kept it perhaps a little too simple for dinner with a Beck's Sapphire. But it was quite comfortable.

    Up next are the Lagunitas Brown Shugga and the SN Narwhal. Great brews.

    Came home after pre-burning off a couple craft brews on the elliptical machine. Found an empty Abrasive can next to the sink and felt a tinge of pain before realizing that turning my wife into a beer snob was among my great life achievements. So we shared a second Abrasive. Now I'm cracking a Sucks. Life is good.

    Almost 4 months old but still good. I'd like to try it fresh to compare it though.

    I've yet to try Double Cream but after trying Black Note I think I'd really dig it.

    Also, fine song selection. It would be 10x better if it wasn't for that beeping during the second chorus.
