Ska Brew Modus Hoperandi. This might have replaced the Stone Ruination as my favorite IPA. 6 bucks cheaper for a 6 pack too.

Just got this e-mail from a local bar:

Monday, June 4
Meet the Brewer: Tomme Arthur from Port Brewing Company

The Lost Abbey Red Poppy (San Marcos, CA ∙ 5.5%) Very special, very scarce! Flanders Red Ale brewed with sour cherries, aged in French oak

The Lost Abbey Framboise de Amorosa (San Marcos, CA ∙ 7.0%) Pucker up—this ale spends a year in wood and is spiked with three additions of raspberries. Funky!

The Lost Abbey Cuvee de Tomme (San Marcos, CA ∙ 11.0%) Huge Belgian strong dark ale with wood aging, cherries, Brettanomyces, the whole nine yards

Price $4½/10oz DRAFT - LIMITED QUANTITIES

Haven't tried any of these three beers, so I'm looking forward to it.

That tap price is amazing considering a 12.7oz bottle of Framboise or Poppy runs close to $20. I'd drink all I could of the first two and the third one sparingly.

Damon, Flora 3 and B of T are awesome. Flora 3 was my favorite of the lot.

Tooch...the envy I have for what is on your countertop is undescribable.

I recently moved to Boston and its next to impossible to find good unique beer around me in a store or bar. I was spoiled living in the burbs with decent stores around. But occasionally a few places get Farmstead and Heady Topper on tap.

Just tried Mikkeller's Tiger Baby:Open Windows Open Hills. It's a pale ale brewed with mango and passionfruit. It might be the perfect summer beer. The fruit was much more prominent than I thought it would be so you have to like passionfruit and mango. Highly recommended if you can find it.

I am well aware of the good beer bars in boston but the actual liquor stores that are around me aka walking distance (anything less than 1.5 miles) is lacking.
