I'm sober now
open your fridge, grab a beer
damn good idea son
Bought a bottle of Dogfish Head 120 min IPA today......don't know what to do with it
I have a 2009 bottle in the back of my fridge.
I never feed it after dark, gotta treat it like a gremlin.
Picked up a 6er of Hop Wallop. Strong as all fuck but p good.
Anyone ever had a Steenbrugge Blond? For some reason it's rately pretty mediocrely online, but I had a pint of this once about four years ago, just the one (last of the barrel as a Wetherspoons guest ale), never had one since. I loved it.
can't fucking wait for fresh Hell or High Watermelon.
Lionshead pilsner is pretty great for just a lazy summer day beer.
Session Lager by Full Sail is also pretty good for a low alcohol beer.
Oh I get it
Hop Wallop isn't that strong, you're just a pussy is all.
Speaking of, when's the vaginoplasty?
Shit was delicious...
... and I usually don't like citrusy beers. Nice and hoppy.
Had some shit tonight. Troegs Nugget Nectar. Not as hoppy as i would had expected, in a good way. Pretty delicious, but i'd still call it an IPA. Uinta Hop Notch IPA. Very good solid IPA. Nice scent, not horribly citrusy, nice and bitter with a medium-light body. O'Hara's Irish Red as a result of a St Patty's draft lineup. Pretty much a lighter version of their stout if you've had it, nice english/irish yeast flavor, pretty much a session ale. Sixpoint Resin IPA. Only got a sip...sedated hop aroma with sedated hop flavor and bitterness. 9.1 ABV. Not bad actually, but not a total hop bomb.
I tried Allagash White tonight. It was pretty good.
I still can't find Ommegang Witte and St. Bernardus Witbier though. I've been looking, too.
And yes, it did take me two years to find Allagash White.
Finally had Three Philosophers last night in celebration of opening my store. Probably not worth the $12.
give me a job plz
I have accepted your application and offer you the title of Chief of Marketing in our Kentucky division.
Had an O'Hara's Irish Red and Guinness pints so far. Then bought a cold sixer of Founders Pale Ale...will commence deck chillage soon.
been drinkin' Hell or High Watermelon all day.
getting ready to switch to some heavier fare.
Stone Vertical Epic 2011 and Green Flash Barely Wine to be specific.
Had to celebrate Patty's Day at APPLEBEE'S because the pseudo-wife closed her show, and that's where the crew always goes for giant margaritas.
The "best" beer they had was Alpine Spring. I felt even worse when they brought it with an orange. I felt even worse when it tasted like nothing. I had to compensate with Labbatt because they didn't even have Guinness/Harp/anything Irish whatsoever.
Today I'm making up for it with a sixer of Torpedo, because it was balls hot and this is an awesome humidity-batting beer.
I'm drinking Torpedo right now too, except I've got pounders, not bottles.
Oh snap. I almost bought the cans of Torpedo the other day due to can excitement, but they were more expensive then the bottles...so i bought something else completely instead. I thought cans were supposed to be cheaper/greener?
4 pack of pounders is $6.49 here. 6 pack of bottles fluctuates between $6.49-$6.99 depending on sales.
I prefer 12 oz cans, but I love cans in general.
Damn. $8.49 for the 4-pack cans with a $7.99 sixer of bottles sitting right next to it. You get a damn fine price on SN.
Double Crooked Tree oh man.
I can't remember the last time I paid more than $7.99 for any six pack. Life out West is good.
I really like these Edringer dark beers I've been drinking. It's like a dark heffewizen. Not the greatest beer I've ever had, but pretty damn good, and since Hong Kong sucks for craft-stuff it's about as close so something "different" that I can get here if I'm in the mood for something other than a mass-market pale lager or adjunct.
Losing my KBS virginity tonight
Enjoy. That's one of my favorite beers and a perfect example of everything that can go right aging a beer in a barrel.
oh dear god this Surly Abrasive is delicious.
One of the few beers I've had where I have to take it slow because the late aftertaste is one of the best parts. I'm sipping every five minutes or so, and savoring every minute of the hoppy aftertaste. Goddamn you Surly, why must you make such delicious beers available in such a small geographical area
And he was never heard from again...
IM GETTING MINE TOMORROW. stoked. sad that I worked on release day here, but then again people camped overnight to get in. ridiculous.
missed the batch that came to one store.
hoping to snag one from the other.
Guinness Foreign Extra is soooo fucking good.
Man, I feel like a n00b in this group, though.
Foreign Extra IS soooo fucking good. I love the nuttiness. They need to bring back 250 goddamnit.
- Lagunitas Maximus IPA
- Breckenridge Small Batch 471 IPA
- Stone IPA
- Stoudts Triple Belgian-Style Abbey Ale
How was the Breckenridge? I haven't found anything outstanding from them yet, it's depressing. Colorado is supposed to be this great beer state and I've really only found one that's impressed me.
It was my least favorite of the 4, but it was also in some pretty great company so
What's the going price for KBS? I managed to snag a 4-pack yesterday, and it's one of the most expensive beer purchases I've ever made. $48. I bought that and a 4-pack of Saison du BUFF and with tax it came to over $70. I almost fainted.
Holy shit, you got ripped the hell off. 48 for KBS and another 20 for Saison Du Buff? To put it in perspective, the bar by me in the suburbs of Philly is selling bottles of KBS for $6 a pop.
They were $4.75 a bottle on release day.
This store is quite overpriced, but they're the only one that consistently gets all the limited releases and actually notifies customers through FB/email when they arrive. I've never seen bottles of KBS in person before actually.
My only point of comparison was a similar store in Lancaster that has even better selection but sells exclusively singles. They only got 1 case, so they were selling them by the bottle for $12 (same price) but with a 1 bottle limit, and they were using a lottery to decide who would even get the opportunity to buy one, and you had to be present at draw time.
12 dollars for a bottle of KBS? That is absurd.
what the FUCK
Fuck. I'm glad i don't like bourbon barrel stouts. I think i am going to get off the limited release craze bandwagon. Shit is just too pricey, and the beers usually aren't significantly more awesome than year-rounds and less limited release seasonals. I felt like a douche for paying $23 for a sixpack of Hopslam.
That's because you don't get Great Divide, Oskar Blues, or Avery. I just had Oskar's Ten FIDY imperial stout on Friday and it was off the chain, like Expedition-good, and I love Expedition.
To use a Michigan analogy, you're making your decision on Michigan as a beer state based off of Frankenmuth, Motor City, and North Peak rather than Bell's, Founders, and Dark Horse. All of those breweries make some decent beers, but the later three make world-class beer in almost every style they brew.
i love the Small Batch 471. excellent beer, around $2 a bottle and 9.2%.
missed one of the stores KBS, hope the other one holds a bottle for me.
tonight's haul consisted of a Storm King, Dirty Bastard, Sublimely Self-righteous and Anderson Valley DIPA.
had a Hopslam with dinner...was able to score another sixer.
that will mean i've had 18 fucking Hopslams this time around, and i am pretty happy about that.
Ten FIDY is good...but Expedition good?
oh, and i can't tell you how happy this makes me:
