So my mate has decided on the five beers he's shipping to me. Most interesting thing is how his definition of five differs from mine. I'm not complaining though shog[1].gif




Oh, and I had this yesterday. Straffe Hendrik triple with Bretts added. Not sour enough for my likings...

I'm a big fan of both the Oude Tart and the White Oak.  I'm actually holding on to a bottle of each right now.  I've never heard of the Chicken Killer, however, but will be interested to hear how it is.

 

I had some of this tonight, Trinity Brewing Company's Red Swingline:

 

 

I'd never even heard of Trinity Brewing until I stumbled on their booth at GABF a couple of years back.  I was really impressed by their sours, wilds, and saisons; I was not particularly amused by their penchant for for naming beers after stuff from Office Space.  That said, the naming conventions take a back seat to taste, and this beer -- dubbed an IPA primitive -- wrings a ton of flavor out of a four per center, with Brett, tons of hops, some fruit, Lactobacillus, oak aging, and dry hopping.  

 

And I had this a couple nights back (please pardon the unfinished backsplash):

 

 

Meh.

Oh...no need to trade. I rarely do that anymore, I'd just have you PayPal the cost of the growlers/bottles and send me a shipping label. I am 90% sure The Illinois went into production and will make it's way around the country in bottles or cans (they're canning now)...
