Happy Friday, fellas. Long week here, I'm sure I'm not the only one. I have a wife who is 2 days past her due date and is quite tense, haha. I have to stay light tonight, so I'm just enjoying Sam Adams company.
What about you?
Stiff as all hell.
Maize and blue koolaid
Hoegaarden in combination with Leffe.
Dew and the dude!!!
had a couple brews at the office. heading home now (on the now ofc), and gonna crack open some whisky.
Nice choice. Sam Adams Latitude ipa... Was on sale and i'm a bargain shopper
Came home and the GF had Hopslam waiting in the fridge for me. Yes it is indeed awesome.
Starting off with Monster and raspberry vodka, moving on to Fat Tire when I'm through drinking liquor.
For what its worth, Brian Kelly is at the Luers Basketball game to watch Jaylon Smith. Second game in a couple weeks they have been at.
So I keep hearing about this McFarlin guy...who is he?
PS: justingoblue told me to ask this and I don't really know what it means.
Just a kid and his bulldog. Do you need his contact info??
adderal and redbull, huge anatomy and physiology exam on tues
There's no moderate "healthy living" tag, but that's what your post needs.
Classing it up.
I don't even know when I've seen that lately. The last time I saw it a 12 pack would cost you like $6.
It's Campus Corner's "special."
solid bro. solid.
It's my firm belief, that Journey sounds much better with a good buzz.
Journey is NOT overrated, I demand a retract of that overrated moderation.
Vodka + OJ.
Unfortunately I'm drinking absolut. Not too smooth, but still effective.
Their new Ruthless Rye and damn is it yummy.
Labatt Ice tall boys. 6 pack for $3.99 can't beat it
Cheap merlot, then some Milwaukee's Best Light...pure class
I'd go beast ice, but I still respect your purchasing decisions
Fresh Hopslam on tap at Ashley's in A2. Probably have a Dirty Bastard or two. Then top the night off with some Viking Blod.
Have you had the Dansk Mjod with caraway? It's pretty fantastic. Drinking "Monte Degli Angeli Sangiovese" myself... my wife's working in Ireland for the next 2 months... gonna be a lot of drinking around here.
All I've had is the V Blod. I've seen the other stuff though. The one that's 21% and also the one with the orange colored bottle. Maybe one day I'll have to try them.
Howell Meijer sells V Blod for like $27. Not bad.
Drinking OE800. Just kidding, although that is what I drank in school when we were digging change from the couch.
It's really Bells Two Hearted
When I heard the 2012 edition of Hopslam was coming out I called around to a few places in the greater DC area, one or two of which said they would be getting some in a week or two and would contact me then. It turns out that beer buyers down here are all very familiar with Hopslam as it is highly sought and sells out immediately. Some places that are fortunate enough to get it, ration their supply, limiting one six pack per customer.
To wrap up my cool story (bro), I got a call yesterday from a store who had put a six pack on reserve for me; picked it up later that evening. Will try my first one tonight as soon as I'm out of the office and safely home.
Sure it seems ridiculous to those who don't obsess over finding rare DIPAs, but I snapped a commemorative photo:
I was near the Total Wine in Fairfax today, so I called them up and they had Hopslam in stock. Said they got it in yesterday, expect to sell out by tomorrow, but they still had 3 cases left. I think they only sell one 6 pack at a time, like you said; I actually had to go to customer service and ask for it because they keep it behind the counter. If you or anyone else in the area wanted to pick some (more) up, you could probably catch it tomorrow morning.
I'm having Hopslam tonight based entirely on reviews from you guys on this board. My friend who plays in Kalamazoo got me two six packs to take back to school. I'm down 5 on the night and have a sweet buzz going so far. These things are delicious, and dangerous too.
Doubt your still checking this thread Doc, but a deli that's close to my house and typically carries pretty good beer got a shipment of Hopslam in. They sold me a case today. Not cheap, but damn it is a good beer. Coincidentally someone also sent me a video from WTOP and they selected Hopslam the beer of the month. According to the video there should be a second wave of Hopslam coming in late February.
That's crazy... Here in Michigan it's on the shelves at Meijer... Man I'm blessed to live in such a great beer state.
Just had one on tap at Bell's!
The fuck I can get my h ds on!
It's all about the founders tonight. Starting with some Centennial, bottle or two of imperial stout later. Maybe get some reds rye to close out the night.
I'm still wrapping up work, but it will be JW black label in about an hour.
EDIT: It's interesting/funny to see the variety on here between the posters. If I were posting this 10 years ago (when I was in college) it would have been "Busch Light, if I decide to splurge."
of Budweiser here......mmmmm good!
