    The hockey's on. AFAIC once the sports start, it's not too early to drink. Yes, that means some weekends I start between 7:30 and 10:00 because I'm watching the Premier League.

    Right now we're finishing off the growler of Empire Brewing Local Grind that I bought yesterday (and watching Sabres-Caps).

    Agreed. Phenomenal nose on the Sucks.
    Doing a little side by side today.



    [​IMG]

    Aroma: Sucks (awesome citrus onslaugh) > Hopslam
    Taste: Hopslam (love the crystal malts that weigh heavily against the hop) > Sucks (great hop bitterness, but I prefer more malt syrupiness)

    Who wins? I do. :)

    My day started with this.

    Then I made my own version of Bramble by adding some blackberry brandy which was actually quite good!

    That is a surprisingly good beer, I think. I was pleasantly surprised by that and Liv and Let Rye.

    Sidenote, do you know if Empire will fill 32oz growlers? Because I basically never find myself in a position to get a full growler of . . . anything, really.

    I have no idea. Yesterday was actually the first time I'd been in for years. I'm slowly getting back out to places since the move back. I don't see why not if you have the glass, but I haven't asked. Luckily for me, I can split them with my wife even if no one else is around to help.

    I want to try that Live and Let Rye. I saw that on the tap list and was intrigued, but I was quite literally on a mission ordered by my wife to bring back a growler of Local Grind and I didn't have time to hang out and try it.

    Finally figured out that Avery does have a date code.
    This is from Aug 2011 - surprisingly not as bad as you would think but, well....you know

    Just got the glass yesterday, and I'm still amused on how I can make the guy's glass look like a beer with a head on it!

    Too bad unibroue needs to use the twist offs as all Canadian breweries do. I find they loose more carbonation over the long run but also have almost taken an eye out prying a cap off with a lighter. Cork and cage bottles are just better IMO. Need to toss this one and De Dolle in the lineup to get BOU status on that Westmalle.

    I just finished my last Celebration Ale. Of course, it tasted better than every other one I had for the season
