    3.Sip of Sunshine-if anyone wants to send me any of this please do.
    4.Early Bird Special- this special Whisky barrel breakfast stout was aimed to please.

    1. Good Morning by Tree House... Having the last of it right now :/ Beautifully balanced stout between the coffee and the maple both taste and aroma wise.
    2. Double Shot w/ Sumatra by Tree House...this is like dark, dark roasted coffee infused in a beer...pure delicacy.
    3. Julius by Tree House... Are you starting to see a trend? This is one of the juiciest beers I've ever had (if not the juiciest) and the hops explode in your mouth...wonderful.
    4. Peche Mortel by Dieu Du Ciel... Another wonderful coffee infused stout... I need more ASAP!!!
    5. Heady Topper by the Alchemist...there's so much going on in this beer both aroma, mouthfeel and taste wise. Great beer!
    Honorable mention: Second Fiddle by Fiddlehead (on draft) it reminds me of a slightly dryer version of Julius.

    Chillwave and 077XX are very close behind. it hasn't even been a year since i've really gotten into craft beer.

    i can't wait to keep going on and exploring what else is out there. kinda reminds me of Pokemon..

    I wanna be the very best, like no one ever was. To catch them is my real test. I will travel across the land, searching far and wide.
