dammit man, why didn't you get me one? Maybe grab me one for tonight then? Despite living near there, I have never bought anything from Glenwood. Sad i know :(

At an Oscar viewing party tonight, a shaken vodka martini - I barely managed not to lecture the host - and the first sip of Lagavulin in years, definitely need to get a bottle of that again. Would have loved more of the scotch, but the fact that I was driving and that the host was embarrassingly drunk In the presence of her and other kids kind of took the fun out of it.

Pursuit of Hoppiness, nice IPA made in Idaho. Unlike a lot of the "hophead" beers produced today there is an attempt to focus on hop flavor/aroma with less of the bitterness, to balance out the malt/hop a bit better. They did a nice job, all considered.

I'm sure after 3-4 of these I'll have more to say on the matter...but it will probably be unintelligible.

And yes, K...wine delivered to the house is awesome! I wish I could get more of it in Arkansas...very few will ship here though (local wineries have done some successful lobbying of the legislature I'm afraid).

About six shots of Williams pear eau de vie. Got another job rejection today. Made it to the final 2 or 3 now in national searches 5 or 6 times with applications that take 5-6 months until they reach a decision, and still did not get an offer. Before I came to the US and got screwed by my boss, people begged me to work for them. Now I am too long out of the system in Germany and not established enough in the system in the US. Heavy drinking sounds like a good idea right now.

Nah haven't had either yet but I almost picked up Dales pale today! Instead I couldn't pass up another bottle of Sucaba and the Saison De Lente. Also picked up Alesmith Decadence while I was at it. I'll be sure to grab the Pale next trip and I'll keep a look out for the Deviant, thanks for the heads up!

The Alesmith is great. Had one Saturday. If you like Sierra's pale, you will definitely like the Dales. It's better IMO, its got a tad more bite, with a real nice finish. I your ever in the hanover PA area, I always have a six or so of Devient Dales. And we could hit my brewery. After seeing your beer tastes, I'm sure you would like mine. Just did a wild yeast dunkle. It's so funky, it yummy

Try to find a few bottles of Founder's Old Curmudeon

Funny you said that. I love it, drinking it now. I also have a sixer aging, it's about 2 yr old now.

A bar here in town always has something from Founders, and it they are always my go to. Centennial was my first from them, but love them all. After my Old, will be something from Roy Pitz. He was in the bistro tonight for dinner, drank a loa if my beer, so I feel te need to repay. Their stuff isn't bad, but could be better... Not that mine is any better, but still...

WA 93pts; WS 92pts; RR 94pts; IWC 92pts. I don't care for Zin that much, so I started it at lunch and sipped on it throughout the day. I'd drink that bottle again.

Jealous. Their beer is hard to get out here, but have had Trade Winds a few times, loved it. We seem to have the same taste in beer. Drank a few Stillwaters tonight. The owner/brewer is my cousin, and brings the experimental stuff by for a fellow brewers input. Always good stuff. Wish I could get my owner to let me try brewing a saison this spring.

If there is any beer you really wanna try that doesn't get distro out there just say the word, I'll do my best to round 'em up.

I think he wants me to do a Beir de Mars first. If we do a Sasion, its going to be traditional, low abv, higher IBU'S. we like to be traditional, so a Mars would have the higher abv we also like to brew. Here in America, we have bastardized the Sasion and raised the abv for our tastes (bigger is better right, lol) and moved away from tradition. I do love me a west coast IPA though. I'll put a list together, lol

Nice, yea I had read that somewhere about traditional Saisons being lower abv.
Makes me wonder about Saison Dupont. Are they marketed for us or did they change that over time.
I've had the regular Saison Dupont, Avec and the Foret.
All were fantastic, I really dug Foret but even that one which was the lowest of the lot was still 7%ish if I remember correctly.
I also just had a Almanac beir de mars but I'm pretty sure it skunked up on me.
Not sure how it'd been stored for the past year, maybe in a microwave.

I don't know this one but being a GG (the German equivalent of a grand cru), this almost still feels like infanticide to me ;) Also wondering: It would be very unusual if this wine were oaked but the maker is known for wines with strong mineral tones IIRC. Could that be what you tasted or did they actually start oaking them? I have to go home soon, need to catch up on the recent vintages...

Congratulations, Ben! Enjoy the Pappy--I haven't had any in years.

Back a long LONG time ago (i.e 6 years) a shop in Jersey had a near full flight of Pappy Van Winkle (12, 15, and 20yr) and multiple cases of each... that WOULDN'T MOVE! They got put on BIG super sale (12 yr cost me $23 with shipping and tax) so I loaded up. Sadly my store of Pappy is running dangerously low now... And in the mean time the world has wised up to Winkle's wiles...

Remember the days where you could just walk into any decent liquor store and find a nicely aged bourbon on the shelf? Remember that? Or even potentially find a bottle of Pappy?!?! Well I don't know when it happened, but I'm pretty sure it was after all of these NYC foodies and chefs (*cough* Chang *cough*) starting blabbing their damn mouths about the stuff, that now the only aged bourbon on the shelf is a bottle of ****** ass 15 yr Scouts that costs $65... And that's if you can even FIND it.

You know what kills me worse than Pappy's scarcity though? I was in a local shop the other day, and behind their locked display case they had a bottle of 6 year Sazerac Rye. That **** is now so rare it's behind their friggin' display case... It's a rough time to be an American Whiskey lover, guys...

A new brew for us. A quad Belgian Blonde. 12.7%, and fruity as hell. Going down nicely after a 12 hour brewing fest we started at 5am. We have a brew fest to get ready for, so its balls to the wall right nowhttp://i.imgur.com/QhSY42u.jpg
