I believe I know a place that has it. Let me confirm in the morning and i can get a price.

Delirium Christmas and Tremens last night. So tasty for a South American winter.

I went to a rather classy place and the waiter asked if I wanted lemon and salt with the beer. I was a bit put off, but I said whatever, give me the lemon separately. It was literally a quarter glass of lemon juice. So freaking strange. Apparently people drink beer with lemon and salt. Not with good beer please! In the summer people drink an odd concotion of Fanta and Beer. It's called fan-schop. Schop is the chilean spanish word for draft beer. With shit beer it does quench the thirst... but it feels oh so wrong.

Drinking some Frangelic Mt. Brown now. I don't really taste the beer, but it tastes kind of like sparkling Frangelico with a hint of coffee. Its pretty interesting. Not going to drink the whole bottle though, way to sweet for that.

These are good places to start. Other recommendations:

Sam Smith Oatmeal Stout
Weyerbacher Heresey
Brasserie Dieu Du Ciel - Peche Mortel
Bell's Expedition
Oskar Blues Ten Fidy

Others that are popular but I'm not that much of a fran of:

Hoppin Frog BORIS
Rogue Chocolate
Great Divide Yeti - and all its variants
Avery The Czar

If I think of any more I'll let you know. I'm miserably depressed so my brain isn't firing on all cylinders.

I totally forgot about that being released. The first of the Founders special releases I won't be trying sadly.

Because of Haye's great win, Robinson's Old Tom Strong Ale. Hardly any foam, malty, liquorice. If it wasn't for the extremely dominant liquorice notes, I'd like it quite a bit.

Is there a cheaper way than UPS to send beer cross country? I'm trying to get a friend to send beer from California to NY but the price is being quoted as about $70 for a 15 pound wine shipping container.

That's about right. Shippin's a bitch. You can try setting up an account and getting the label online. That saves 10% I think. Try Fedex too.

Picked up a few Brux today. Meh.
post #4589 of 7196
I'm apparently supposed to be able to buy it tomorrow. Nobody on Long Island knew about it for some reason, so finally one store called the distributor who said he's had it for a while. I'd imagine they would get better with time, but I'm still looking forward to trying a fresh one.
