Had two Optimal Wits yesterday watching the hockey game. Every bit as good in my mind as Allagash White

That was an offer... You mentioned a beer swap. I'm no connoisseur, but I enjoyed Dead Armadillo. Im willing to trade for whatever you send my way. PM me.

Avery Raja Double IPA simply delicious....tastes nothing like an IPA, but packs a punch at 8%

Funny story, was out to dinner about 10 years ago with friends and another couple we had never met. Craft beer still relatively new.

 

Place had these in the 750ml bottles. the dude I did not know sucked one down pretty quick and ordered another.I warned him about the ABV...but he paid me no mind! after the 3rd, and a few wines lets just say his wife was not so happy with him.

Lagunita Little sumpin sumpin is pretty tasty. I was plan on working outside today, but the weather is miserable so I'm watching bucks/raptors in between painting and drinking beer.

I am blessed to live in a region known to produce quality hops.  (Nelson-Tasman region/Top of the South Island NZ)

This year's hops were harvested about a month ago, so the local brewers are just coming out with their freshly hopped IPAs and Pilsners.

 

Last night I enjoyed a couple fresh pilsners.  Harvest Pilsner from The Sprig and Fern.

I love this time of year.

Let's go Buffalo!

That's a nice one, it's in my normal rotation.

For this evening's ferry ride I have a Brown Shuga but I'm not a big fan of this offering from Lagunitas.

went to the Yankees game saturday and wanted to hit a couple breweries on the way out, preferably in Brooklyn as we were meeting my nephew.  Decided on Other Half, have had their beers before and everything I have had from them has been top notch and ridiculously good, had 2 beers, first one was Imaginary Greenscapes, second was their Double Dry Hopped Cabbage, what an outstanding beer....wow.  This place is what you would expect from a Brooklyn Hipster place, very industrial, no aesthetic appeal at all, but holy crap is their beer good.  From there we went a mile down the road to The Three's Brewing, also some pretty outstanding beers...was able to snag a couple 4 packs, SFY and Unreliable Narrator, haven't tried them yet.

 

On a side note, buddy of mine was clearing out his beer cellar of some aged beers.  He has 3 1995 Sam Adams Triple Bocks he is giving me plus he said he will throw in some that didn't garner any interest.  Can't wait for the Sam Adams, had a bottle 0f 1994 in october, it aged well
