I lost a skaggen watch a couple years ago. it was before they switched to that paper thin design and while it wasn't terribly expensive visually it looked better on me than any other watch I've had or tried on.... I miss it.
aprihop is one of my favorates.
now I was just thinking and maybe someone can help me out but 3-4 years ago dogfish head had raison d'extra on the market as well as a special version of Fort... does anyone know the name. I remember having it on tap at the hopleaf and finding it to be one of the least drinkable beers I have ever had (I think it took me 2 or 3 hours to go through 8ozs)

tooch, you have any good bar recommendations for this weekend... we have guys weekend going on and were looking to check out a few new places around the city, more so for afternoon drinking (they are like me, heavy in the pale and ipa category)
and you dont want to expand too much and lose quality control... or worse yet, have the craft beer market bottom out on you.
and tooch is right, 2/3 years ago this beer wasn't a big deal. I have it up on my wall and I didn't necessarily think I was drinking anything all that great (sorry I'm not a stout guy)
