    In Texas CVS has booze. No hard times; just got off a plane and too lazy to go shopping.

    Just had some coffee, Rusty's Hawaiian 100% Ka'u, medium roast, from a french press. Beautiful stuff, incredible fuit. I was just going to write it is ridiculously expensive, but compared to the coffee I pick up at the chain places it is actually o.k. Now off to work, there are always papers to grade...

    I'm drinking Stone smoked porter tonight, somebody posted it last week and gave me a hankering. I picked some up yesterday, so tonight's the night.
    IMO Hanger 1 is the best vodka under the price of Stoli Elite. Some friends and I did a blind tasting a few years ago and it beat just about everything aside from the Elite and a $200 bottle of some other Russian stuff.

    It's not very popular (yet) and I think waaaay under valued: I've seen it in sale for $25 per .750L


    Tonight though, I'm drinking beer: Surly "Wet" ..... mmmm hops.

    HOW THE HELL DO YOU GET DOGFISHHEAD ON THE WEST COAST!?!?!?! They are far and away my favorite brewery, but I can't get their stuff in MN. So do you import awesome beer along with J-knives?

    Ooh, do tell. Don't think I've got any '02's floating around (DANG that's early. That the first Optimus bottling?) but I've got some older ones. How did '02 age?
