When I get home I'm taking a pic of all the goodies I brought back from Maryland with me
I got a couple of local ales from a cool store I found not too far from me that specialises in real ales.
The one of the left was ok, nothing that great.
However the one on the right was amazing. Really strong at 10.6% but the best tasting ale I've ever had.
Cracked open a bottle of Brew Dog Tokyo with a friend this afternoon. I like strong beer but this takes the cake - 18.2% abv. The smell and first taste is a bit in your face but then there's a good bit of complex flavor in there. I've tried some Westvleteren 12s in the past and the overall effect is a little akin to that. By the time you are finished you feel internally warmed, from the brain out. Wasn't expecting much from Brew Dog as I'm not a fan of their silly names or graphic design style but this was a pleasant surprise.
Saw Napalm death last night and they ruled!
oh and this happened
As I said earlier in the thread he lives close to the brewery so whenever he visits he brings me some.
Hey Matt how was that? I see it all the time in my local liquor store (I love stone) but I've never tried it.
My current favorite beers
^ Nice! Those are two of my favorite as well
Oops, I think I replied to your question but in the What Are You Drinking? thread...
I'm going to a local craft beer fest today. I couldn't be more excited!
So my friend just acquired one of these.
Can't wait to try it this weekend.
Edit: Sorry for the huge photo..
My jealousy, it's tingling.
My friend just sent me what on the menu tonight.... Jaw drop...
The bourbon county is awesome. I really want to try the heady topper. I got this a week or so ago. Pretty tough to find and really expensive, but very good.
interesting. What would you compare that bourbon county to?
The flavor or bourbon county is like no other beer I have ever had. Huge depth of flavors. Bourbon, caramel, alcohol. It's a huge beer. Not an everyday thing, but try it if you can. It's worth the $.
Saddly I was about ten minutes too late before my local store was out of bourbon county this year. Definitely going to have them order me a few packs next year.
Sadly the meds I'm on means that drinking is now pretty much a thing of the past. However I have found this and it pretty much curbstomps the vast majority of low ABV beers/ales.
BTW when the bumph says "insanely hoppy" they mean it.
I was in the bottle o to get a beer for watching game of thrones on monday and saw this so couldnt resist , i also have a current thing for strong belgian styles and saisons at the moment ( lazy link to webpage rather than upload photo)
Brewery Ommegang - Game of Thrones: Valar Morghulis
it was good but overpriced for the marekting factor . it was basically the same as a chimay blue IMHO for $10 extra . I love chimay blue but its already expensive. not worth the extra $10 IMHO
Memorial Day is almost here and it's pretty much killing me.
Last year I promised my fiancee's uncle i would be able to snag at least a bottle of Founders KBS; he said i was full of it.
needless i got a 4-pack and he's over the moon.. however i can't touch it until the family party at the end of the month... its killing me
not sure if it will be worth the hype, but it being so limited in quantity makes me eager
was at Lift Bridge Brewery in Stillwater, MN over the wknd - they always have good stuff. They had a really nice Mango Blonde beer - usually not big on fruity stuff, but it was just about the perfect outdoor/summer beer.
If you guys are into Session IPA's check out Southern Tiers - Tangier.
Great IPA that comes in around 4.5% abv
