    All cans all the time since I'll be at the beach. Sly Fox Helles Lager, Sly Fox 360 IPA (if I can find it before I leave), Troegs Perpetual Ale, Sixpoint Bengali and a few Yuengling Lord Chesterfields for slumming it during the day.

    I think I'm picking up Tröegs Sunshine Pils again, and probably Yuengling Lager. If I had planned it out better, I would've had the IPA we brewed done in time!

    It's going to be warm and I will probably be outside all day doing yard work (you have to... if you have a yard).

    So, a half rack of Shiner Ruby Redbird outta keep me cooled down!

    Try Sierra Nevada's Torpedo IPA. Pretty tasty for a mass-produced product. IMHO... much better than Blue Moon and Fat Tire. Ranger is right there.

    2012 Founders Imperial Stout
    2009 World Wide Stout
    2013 Founders KBS
    2012 Stone Imperial Stout
    2013 BCBCS
    2013 Speedway Stout

    Friday: Double Sunshine, Heady Topper, and Gandhi-Bot (to share with my brother)
    Saturday: Rogue Shakespeare Oatmeal Stout

    Will be heading to the Mason-Dixon line, so judging by Good-ta-Go's (Chambersburg) current draft list, Weyerbachers Aries, DFH Red & White (will have a side of blueberries just to be patriotic), and Troegs Scratch 145 DIPA. And I might not be able to get through the weekend without any Dirt Wolf.

    Pliny around lunch time, followed by some Two Hearted in the early evening, and Parabola during the fireworks show while sitting around the bonfire with some smores.

    Donco Devotee (470) Aug 12, 2013 Pennsylvania

    Parabola and smores...outstanding! Drink that entire bomber of Parabola and you'll have your OWN fireworks:rolling_eyes:

    Make sure to report back on your findings. I've never had these two side by side but I've had many Bourbon Barrel Stouts next to BCBS and none have been able to compete within it!!

    Nah, I wouldn't do BCBS (or the coffee version) vs. KBS. They are different beers and I like to just do one at a time (and conserve):wink:

    I sort of surprised myself today by picking up a Victory Mixed Twelve pack. It's been so long since I've had any of those beers (Hop Devil, Golden Monkey, Prima Pils, Headwaters Pale Ale) that getting them all at once seemed like a great idea all of a sudden. Impulses, where would I be without them?...

    I also got a few Ruin Tens and a Wild Devil, but they might not make it to Friday :wink:.

    I struck out on that Anderson Valley Gose- maybe it's not in NJ yet? I'll have to look into that, or just get another sixer of something else before the weekend.

    Two-Hearted cans in the late morning, then ALL DAY til the sun comes up.

    Maybe some Troegs Dreamweaver?
