    Just scored a case of Agave Cerveza... Perfect summer session beer. I'm happy the distributors made another delivery this week.

    Splitting a four-pack of Modern Times' Fortunate Islands with my wife. Following it up with:

    - Stone RuinTen
    - Modern Times Blazing World
    - Victory Summer Love
    - Ballast Point Even Keel

    ... tough to peg the best time for RuinTen. Too early, and it's overly filling and heavy (especially on the beach). Too late, and you're already feeling it, which takes away from enjoying the 10.8% ABV in RuinTen.

    Going to float the river on the 4th so I have to go pick up stuff that's canned tomorrow. Probably grab some Karbach Weisse Versa and some Real Ale 4 Squared.

    Bells Amber and Goose Island India Pale Ale unless my brother brings something more interesting. I think he has a couple of bottles of something set aside for me.

    Have you had it before? I keep seeing it at my local (I know, I'm rubbing it in now) but haven't heard much about it. Being a gose fan I was thinking of picking some up.

    I'll be up that way (well, Gilford/Laconia) in a few weeks. I usually hit up Case n' Keg and sit on the lake. Good times.

    No, I haven't had it yet but I am definitely interested in trying it; I've seen plenty of people enjoying it on the WBAYDN threads, plus it seems like the perfect beer for this weekend's weather and activities. That's OK, I got the Anchor California Lager instead.

    FWIW, you're not really rubbing it in- I'll get it soon enough. I did check Anderson Valley's Beer-Finder, and it's not too far away in NY, so I can make a border run when I have the time. No NJ locations listed, though, so I guess it's not here yet. They better get a move-on, Summer's officially under way :slight_smile:.

    Any one of these during the 3 day weekend. :slight_smile:
    • Sierra Nevada Southern Hemisphere Harvest Fresh Hop Ale (bombers)
    • Founder's Centennial Ale (grabbed a whole case of cans)
    • Dogfish Head 75 minute IPA (one bomber)
    • Lagunitas Hop Stoopid (one bomber)
    • Bell's Two Hearted Ale (cans)

    I would switch Enjoy By and Just Outstanding in the order you're planning on drinking them. Never had Swami's so I can't comment on that exactly but of those IPAs I'd definitely drink Stone last.
  25. nicholasofcusa

    nicholasofcusa Aspirant (202) Jan 14, 2006 Pennsylvania

    Just got back from the store where I did the same thing. Also picked up a case of last year's Brooklyn Pumpkin Ale for $15.

    I'll be drinking lots of the Centennial with some Stone Ruination, Stone SSR, and a handful of other DIPAs thrown in.

    Also going to a bar that just opened for half off happy hour to watch the Brazil-Colombia game tomorrow so hopefully they have some tasty stuff on draft.

    Nothing crazy here....felt like having some hefeweizens so that's what I picked up. Starting with some Wormtown MassWhole then moving onto some Weihenstephaner Hefeweizen. After that it'll be either mixed drinks (Tom Collins, Gin and Tonics, etc.) or some Coronas with my brothers-in-law.

    New Glarus Scream IIPA for me while grilling.

    Pipeworks Sam vs. Unicorn and Stone Enjoy By 07.04.14 because it seems appropriate.

    Something barrel aged after everyone goes home and the kids go to sleep, because the weather will allow it (for my tastes)... Clown Shoes Billionaire or Founders Sweet Repute or Two Brothers 17th Anniversary Ale.

    Looks like I'll probably have a Heady (purchased yesterday) with lunch, and then later on I think I have Hop Drop n' Roll, Society and Solitude 4, and Beer Geek Brunch Weasel planned. Will probably add more to that list tomorrow.
