following it up with a 2013 Sierra Neveda Bigfoot : )
Maine Beer Company MO - American Pale Ale APA
Oh, what a night.................
Lots tonight...finishing with BCBCS...and good god...simply amazing.
Just finished brewing a Saison with Nelson and Sorachi
Recipe with some Mosher book help I made(mostly the malt bill, I kind of went off the wall with the hop additions, but IBUs are in line with what I wanted):
Fricking delicious! I bought a 4 pack back home during xmas, and wasn't too thrilled with it, but I just reviewed it at a pretty warm temp, and damn did this open up. Awesome. Great hop complexity and moderate malt balance.
Digging into this now. Over a year of age now. The barrel character is very prominent. Awesome slow sipper, tons of complexity.
Well, my girl Jennifer Lawrence won an award so im excited!
Cheers ladies and gentlemen!
Went to the back of the fridge tonight. Been drinking some top of the line stuff but tonight settled on cleaning out the back and making some room.. Started with Phin and Matt's and now drinking a Rush River Double Bubble.
finishing a growler of la cumbre elevated ipa. many thanks to Beerandboards for the trade!
Imperial Stout Trooper
I couldn't choose between the two, so I doubled-up. Great side-by-side. Thanks, wittyname, for the BCBS! Cheers on a Sunday night!!
Started with a New Glarus Back 40 Bock...
Moved on to The Bruery's Rugbrod....
Capping the night off with a Victory Storm King...
Drinking a bomber of BCBCS and hangin with some Hank 3...
Just got home from 4 days in Tampa, FL, and several great visits to the Cigar City Brewpub!
Work tomorrow, but starting with a Lagunitas Brown Shugga.
Congrats on the new member of your family.
Now put all of your shoes in the closet..

Everything is tasting so good tonight I decided to have one more and open up a trade bonus, my second (and sadly my last) Citra APA home brew from BA member Evan. Really good stuff!
been waiting to try this...
Ending the weekend after a rough week. Great beer.
A new one for me n the wife. I worked a 12 hour shift and I'm off tomorrow. Gonna have a couple cold ones
1st Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout I have ever had. Pretty Damn Good.
Tonight I'm am spending the last few hours of my 31st year with a few of my favorite beers, and some silent movies. Nothing new tonight! First up is the famous taddy porter, great beer!
Nightcap? Sadly it's very thin and over carbonated. Many thanks to Gherig13 for the tick though.
Got to try that one a couple weeks ago. Really good stuff, but a tad too sweet for my taste. How did you like it?
My first Big Foot! Love it!
Had a pretty shitty/long day today so I'm just getting around to dinner now. Broiled up a quick teriyaki marinated slab of salmon.
Just had at the pub:
The Bruery Humulus Lager
(not my pictures.)
Thirsty Dog 12 Dogs of Christmas ale. I had the barrel-aged version on tap and thought it was fantastic, so I picked up a six of the regular release. It blows away Great Lakes Christmas ale, IMO.
Started with a Piggy
Moving on to some HF Susan
Any Jew Brew left?? If not, I can send more.
sucks and a palate wrecker.
Enjoying this as I countdown the days until I receive my first Heady Topper in my first trade. Goodnight everyone!
