    Thank you for the correction, you're absolutely right. I was just having the conversation tonight with some beer geek friends regarding Hop Slam and I have it on the brain. I meant to say "Hop Wallop". :flushed: (premature ejaculation...:grimacing: it's coming up to that time of year with alot of great beer realeases...)

    I'm not entirely sure yet. I know I'll have some Celebration, however I don't have anything special lined up. I'll have to see what peaks my interest in bombers this weekend.

    There are plenty of great reasons Ebenezer’s is the number 1 beer bar in the world. First is the owners Chris and Jen run the place like a Swiss watch. I like their attitude and they had great beers of all times. I really like them and for me going to that place is like heaven. I always like to go for places that are special .
    Ocala bars beers.

    I think that my fiance and I have decided that St. Bernardus 12 will be the beer that we will be drinking New Years. Delicious beer and popping the cork at New Years is pretty fun! Cheers

    I think I'm finally going to drink that DFH Fort I've had for who even knows how long. I've been saving it for an occasion where I can share it with a few people and I just keep forgetting about it when the day finally comes.
