    I will be seeing Mighty Mighty Bosstones at the House of Blues in Boston, so the majority of their beer prices are outrageous. I hate paying 7$ for a pbr, but it may happen! As for now, I just cracked a Heady Topper with some Celebration Ale or 60 Minute in my future til tonight!

    If you like the Deliverance, try to track down some He'Brew Sweet 16.
    Better value $/oz & $/abv, on par at the very least, better imo.

    The BottleShop on Passyunk had some last week, but entirely too expensive ($16-ish), when I've found it for around $10-11.

    Sounds good. I got a spot in NC that gets their stuff in. I'm also quite certain I'm one of five people in Jacksonville, NC who drinks craft. So chances are if they get it, I can more than likely get my hands on a few bottles. Good look

    If I find it down there, I'll hit you up with a price. It's nice cuz I don't have to fight for bottles with other customers, but there's quite a bit of limited releases they don't get due to state distribution I suppose.

    Since the ladies will be guzzling wine, the guys will be sharing Westy 12, KBS, Curieux, Abt 12, Staffe Hendrik, Antigoon, Delirium Tremens. Once the ladies pass out, break out the instruments and play a loud, drunken set of music while hoisting glasses of Labrynth. Burp.
