Watched some Futurama back in the day. Never got that into it, though.

As for Futurama, I've enjoyed what I've seen of it, but never really got into it. 

 

 

I think I'm pretty well recovered from my stint in Chicago.  I had a lot, and some of the highlights are as follows:

 

- 3 Floyds Pear Bear -- sour, fruity, really nice.

 

- Pipeworks Sure Bet -- fantastic DIPA.  Should've brought some home.

 

- Brasserie Franches Montagne √225 Saison -- good, like a junior Bon Chien, which makes sense.

 

- Revolution Ryeway to Heaven -- rye ale aged in rye barrels; although it had a good hand in destroying part of an afternoon, it was worth it.

 

- Revolution Deth's Tar -- bourbon barrel imperial stout; same as immediately above, good thing I didn't finish the glass. 

 

- Revolution Coup d'Etat -- very enjoyable saison.

 

- Off Color Apex Predator -- saison with a funky smell, awesome crisp flavor.

 

- Marz Double Jungle Boogie -- awesomely fruity IPA. 

 

- 5 Rabbit Arroz Con Leche -- crazily sweet dessert beer.  Enjoyable and different.

 

 

And here's what I brought back.  I probably should have sought out a bunch of the above too.  Oh well.  Sorry for the abundant price tags too.  Gaudy, I know:

 

 

I then proceeded to drink most of the above.  But first, opened this one up.  It was really nice.  I mean really, really nice.  So nice that my in-laws took a photo of the bottle so that they could remember it and buy more.

 

 

This one didn't do anything for me, nor for my in laws.

 

 

I thought this one from Marz was really nice, and my in laws did too.  Just to be clear, they aren't huge beer people.

 

 

Still really good:

 

 

I'm kind of sad that I took up space bringing this one back instead of one of those mentioned above. It really didn't impress me.

I know many of you think drinking from the can/bottle is for savages, but whatevs. I'm siting on the couch watching the Avs and Flames, and drinking a Colorado Native Amber Lager.

I think I watched every futurama episode multiple times except for the last season which was so bad I quit halfway through.

It says on the heady topper can to drink out of the can

I use a glass when I'm at a table but if I'm outside or on the couch or on the move it's generally by the can or bottle

Good to hear you had a good time in Chicago, I am even happier to hear you enjoyed beers brewed by some of my friends (Off Color, Marz and Rev). We actually had our wedding at Revolution last year (brewpub upstairs), I wish I was a bit more active here I could've given you a list of great spots to go that are more local and off the beaten path. Glad you had fun.

On another note, I was in San Francisco this past week and was astonished to walk into Toronado and see more Midwestern beers on draft than Cali. Blind Pig on draft though is still one or my favorites, Reality Czech Pils was also a nice suprise, I passed on the $80 of Cable Car, but did shell out the $20 for a Temptation. That was about as much beer nerding that I did while out there, I soaked my liver primary in fermented grape juice instead...

This thing is properly spicy, in a very balanced way. LOVE it!..

Glad you enjoyed that one. I ordered a couple in my last batch instead of Bible Belt which incidentally is one of my all time favourites but never found the heat. Hoping this has a bit more of a kick.

Definitely has!..

Pannepot 2007. Downright mindboggling. Beautiful evo. Very, very slight sour touch, but nowhere near oxidised or past its peak.

So apparently there's a new Evil Twin beer in the Jesus series?.. Même Jésus Plus?.. Wondering if anyone here has tried it. Have a couple of bottles incoming by the end of November.

I'll have to keep an eye out for that.

Also, @Tooch4321, wish I'd bought more of your Marz friends' beers.

A couple of recents:

Pretty nice, but about at the end of my season for this:


Good:


Also good:


And some new acquisitions:

^ Dig what I've had from Pfriem. Had a couple Sierra Nevada Celebration Ales, Great Divide Titan IPA cans and a short pour of Orval.
