but I haz a sad that it is AB-Inbev now, just like Goose Island. I still drink both, but I feel like a scab when I do. NTTAWWBAS
OT: Drinking thread? Drinking thread
… but there beer is still exceptional. Their Abbey Ale is one of my favorite beers and I hear their Brewery in New York is Phenomenal.
Ommegang is indeed tremendous. The Hennepin is great, I'm not much into quads but 3 philos is great and just about everything else they do is first class. I would have loved to have been in Cooperstown for the Wilco show at the brewery but we were about to have our second son and momma don't like being 9 months pregnant with her husband drunk on Ommegang 800 miles from her ob/gyn.
18 with a couple drops of water.
Settles the lamb chops I had a couple hours ago perfectly.
Geeze... The 10 is pure smoke! I love it, but I'm afraid to go anywhere near the 18. I'd like to try it before I commit to a bottle, but anywhere I go that has it (a rarity, to say the least) always wants nearly $20 a glass.
I do believe I will have some ardmore later, though.
XMas gift ever. Love my wife.
It's actually quite a bit smoother than the 10 or 12. I wouldn't enjoy drinking it everyday, can tell you that.
The second glass inspired me to make a fire on the patio, and contemplate beingness and nothingness whilst watching the lake effect snow come down by firelight.
but I'm down to one big glass and I'm saving it for something worth celebrating.
Drinking in Sedona Az. So many milfs
Literally snorted at that truth.
..and watch out b/c cougars bite!
This. ((but it's true))
I'm in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley. The only place I could find that sold Hopslam would only sell me and my buddy 2 bottles each. It's too strong for him, so I got all 4 bottles. I've saved them for special occasions like recent big M bball games.
I met the girl who would become my wife 2 days before I started my current job nearly 7 years ago. This job has required heavy travel, including 6 months in New Mexico, 6 months in Florida, almost 2 years in ohio, and work here and there in 11 other states.
Today I got a new job 15 minutes from my new home with a Monday to Friday schedule that will allow me to be home every night with my wife, my dog, my two cats, and my eight chickens.
Tonight I drank my last Hopslam.
Don't click then.
Lame post. Happens too often.
Nelson. On draft. Best IPA ever. Except Pliney the Younger, which all these stinkin bars are holding out.
I was in San Deigo in nov...drove all over to buy some pliney. No success! I was bummed, so king of double IPAD is still hopslam at this point.
Had some sculpin, pretty good.
Dig from new Belgium, not bad, still no Fat Tire. Went to pick up some Hopslam today but just couldn't pay $16.99 for a sixer.
The last of my Hopslam or Smitten? I'm leaning toward Smitten. I can probably find some more of that at Biinny's.
Latitude 48 IPA, I'm not drinking alone when I'm on the Internet.
in this case that means a random glass or two of wine, a few Shocktop fall seasonals and maybe a glass of precious Patron Silver, but probably not.
Now I'm having some Glenlivet 12 on the rocks.
Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale. My Aunt was nice enough to bring me some from Lexington.
simple tonight and just kicking back a Budweiser
Black and tans made with Guinness Extra Stout and Sam Adam's Cherry Wheat. So yummy, one of my favorites.
Beers of the now: Bells Winter White and Sanders Chocolate Stout.
Trying Bell's Lager of the Lakes for the first time. Pretty...Pretty...Pretty...Pretty good!
Have a 6'er(ok 5'er now) in my fridge. One of my favorite lagers.
Now just going with the Soco
Started out great with a Hopslam, but after a late night email from the boss it became vodka and soda and now just vodka...
from Munich. But my time zone is +6 from you all so I've started all over again. Circle of life.
On tap at the Village Lanes in Harrisville, MI. Only $8 for a 22 oz. pour. Gotta love Northern living!
I'm getting ready to go see a live performance by En Vogue. It will be hilariawesome.
Anyone watching UDetroit on ESPN2?
They are @ Valpo who is 10-2 in the conference. Detroit is 9-4.
Detroit is on a 9-0 run to cut a lead to 6 and Ray McCallum is lookiing good.
EDIT: Also, Maryland up 4 on Duke, but are starting to turn it over a bunch.
Ore Dock brew pub in Marquette, then to blackrocks brewery and finish by the fire in the woods and a few KBC widow makers. Back to Ann Arbor tomorrow.
Arm pulled. Trying to rid the basement fridge of beer anyway. I'm going to give beer a break and stick to tequila for the next few weeks once I clean out the beer. Thirsty dog raspberry ale to start with a Great Lakes Christmas ale to follow.
This is last nights drinking thread, so i'm drinking whatI had last night. EW single barrel and Hopslam
I am ususally a Bourbon guy, Elijah Craig 12 year is a favorite. But tonight I am enjoying a bottle of Scotch my wife bought for me, The Famous Grouse, I could see myself drinking a lot more Scotch since the Grouse is so very tasty
I guess Scotch causes double posts. My first ever...
