Got a case stashed away for me from my local store owner, picking it up before Thanksgiving dinner

Wasn't able to get any of the variants this year because of my powerful desire to sleep, but was able to get a sixer of the standard thanks to the store relaxing on its limits towards the end.

Some friends of mine are in the R&D stage of their brewery, and made a coconut stout a couple weeks ago. I could drink that beer non-stop.

This year's Great Lakes Christmas Ale draft - great, bottle - bad

 

Had an Oktoberfest from a new brewery for me, Blue Point Brewing Long Island, very good.

 

Have a couple IPAs from another new one, Deschutes in Bend OR, called Pinedrops.

Never had Pinedrops, but have had some of the stuff from Deschutes. Usually pretty decent.

Drank the last of my Gotta Get Up To Get Down (Milk Stout) today. I knew I should have bought more when I was in Memphis.

Being an old school simple beer drinker I've usually drank straight from the bottle. The other night I tried one of those GL Christmas ales poured into a tall glass first, and let it sit a few minutes. Much better.

 

Was out at Fat Head's on the weekend with some friends, tried the Bumble Berry Ale after my friends kept telling me how good it is and not a lot of fruity taste. I liked it and will probably buy some from the store soon. Most of us were losing track of what we tried and how many we drank. 3 of our group of about 10 had growlers refilled. Need to give that a try. Since I tried and liked the Trail Head Pale Ale I picked up a 6pk while at the store yesterday. Glad to see a few more flavors from Fat Heads on the store shelf (usually just Bumble Berry Head Hunter IPA). Finding that the less hoppy/bitter PAs are usually more to me liking than IPAs.

 

Also bought a couple from Brooklyn brewery, their lager was ok and I'll see how the Oktoberfest is then try some others (love the build your own 6pk for $11).

I love Fat Head's. Hop JuJu is being released Feb. 11th at 5 at the Tap House. Gold Medal winning Double IPA...probably more hoppy than you would like but such a great beer.

 

I bought a 22oz bomber of The Butcher & the Brewer's Big Belgo Bourbon Poppa, 10.7% Belgian-Russian Style Imperial Stout that spent 4 months in Old Forester Bourbon barrels. $14.99/bottle. Going to take it with me to Indy when I go in April to share with my Hot Wheels collecting buddies that also like good beer.

So after Peyton dropped the kiss wife/kids and drink Bud comment, all I could think was really? You make millions and yet drink that POS beer? :shocking::yuk:

 

My wife calls me a beer snob, but we all had that thought right?

Don;t know, but he owns an Anheuser Busch distributor in Missouri, so the more Bud they sell, the more money he makes

Bud is also a major sponsor of the NFL, might be Bud Lite. I was more surprised that he said twice (first on field to Tracy Wolfson then on the trophy podium to Nantz) "Gonna drink a lot of Buds". Really a lot, not just a few or simply "gonna have some Budweisers to celebrate."

 

If he drinks Bud that's fine, I used to be shunned by my beer snob friends for drinking nothing but simple lagers(first Labbatt, then Yuengling), as well as by my Bud swilling friend about Heineken being "nasty skunk water". Now I probably drink as much pale ale and IPA as plain lagers, but still not a fan of porters and stouts. I don't judge people by what beer they drink, food they eat, or their possessions.

What is up with Ballast Point and their flavored IPAs?

Orange Vanilla Fathom?

Watermelon Dorado?

 

I do like their Grapefruit Sculpin and would like to try the Pineapple. Fan of the Habanero Sculpin too.

Not sure if they are available at all in North America but Im a huge fan of Beavertown brewery in London. Do a couple of fantastic IPAs and a good session lager.
