First time. METAL.
Now moved onto a Sam Adams New World Tripel. Quite a different take on the style in my opinion much more fruit forward and far less spice than I am used to. Decent just the same but probably won't repeat.
From the NOOB BIF box via NJ.
Fruity and light (sweet and thin) for an RIS but still very enjoayable.
Thanks to Brewbetter for this one. LNBAers gettin it done.
Nugget Nectar again, maybe it's a bit over-rated, but I still think it's fantastic.
The slam is going down smoothly!
Walked downtown with my daughter earlier today to watch the Sharks lose in the shoot out at Alewoks. Had a Double Standard IPA and a Sleeperwave Wee Heavy. Drinking this tasty brew that my friend Josh brought back with him while he was on a business trip.
After digging my car out most of the day I'd figure I'll start with one of these.
I like the Portsmouth Brewery glassware!
Lagunitas SUCKS!!! And so do I. But I am happy, and the wife isn't completely turned off by me. Winning?!?
May lose my craft beer snob card over this one, but picked up a six pack of Stockyard Oatmeal Stout from Trader Joe's today on a whim. For $5.99 I figured, "why not", and it's actually really good!
Gonna finish my night off with some Bristol Winter Warlock.
Moved on to so Fullakzoid...some nice psych.
Green Flash Barleywine. Need a drink after finding out that my best co-worker gave his notice...that prick. Happy drinking to all those pricks on this Saturday night.
This evening, Enigma!
Went to the bar to drink Lagunitas sucks, now some nugget nectar at home
I went for the 2012 Bigfoot Nightcap...
Sharing with my lovely wife...yeah.
Now for dessert! My days of Sucks envy are finally over!!!
Tasty, tasty, tasty! This and Hopslam . . . so worth the wait! (Unbelievable, accidental find at a local grocery store!) I always seem to luck out when I least expect it! Cheers BA! BIG CHEERS to all!
Tonight I'm having a Freigeist Hoppeditz, I was in the mood for something malty but this guy is unbeleavably drinkable for 7.5%. I might cap it and save the rest for later. Hops might be in my future.
Holla holla holla
Early Valentine's dinner with the wife at the Publican in Chicago - very good eats
Moving onto this
So, I'm looking to close my night, but I have nothing dark to drink. Instead I have three beers I've never had before from Dogfish Head:
How do you even decide?
So I randomly chose the Noble Rot, having read it is supposed to be somewhere between a wine and an ale.
Beautiful in the glass and on the palate:
White wine (like a pinot grigio) flavors meet the pale ale smack-dab in the middle. I suppose it might not be to the liking of some - totally understandable - but for the record, I'm not a big fan of wines, and I found this delightful.
Dogfish Head... Cheers!
Totally enjoyed the Sublimely self righteous! Now on to one of my all time favs!
I like where your head's at!
1300 ft uphill driveway today+30 plus inches of snow= need for a body numbing beer
So far today:

Not sure what else the night will bring.
Thanks commanderofawesome...brewery exclusive at 12.75%...bazinga!!
Now onto Ithaca Flower Power, absolute great.
Breaking in my new glassware received today from Zander.
FFF Supa Rice Ronin of Death at Three Floyds brewpub.
Starting off in Texas tonight.
At Rock Island Public House..packed house so no pics...Finchs Golden Wing and Oso`s Nitro Night Train...
Thanks for the tip! I never thought of Trader Joe's for craft beer. I do love me some stout!
Now a Sucks
Struggling through Lagunitas Cappuccino Stout....live and learn and buy a different beer
Loving this Fade 2 Black Volume 2. Been holding on to this for a while, drinking as good as when fresh.
This is up next for me.
