    Found some double dose. Then I found some Grassroots/Mikkeller and a Sucaba. (which hc4thehc has dibs on if he can find me a fou'foune ;) )

    Check the ISO forums on BA. There's some pretty good offers for a growler of Double Galaxy- saw a lot of Cantillion.

    Something nice from Colorado in honor of GABF (while all the photos from there make me a bit jealous, I'm pretty sure I never need to go back again).

    And to pile on the Double Dose, I think I'm getting some of that tomorrow.

    Crooked Staves Vielle Provision and Anderson Valley Gose

    CS makes some pretty fantastic beer and I find bottles better than draft. Kinda blown away by this right now at the drinkability and taste

    Definitely agreed that Crooked Stave seems better bottled than on draught. I wasn't all that wowed when I visited the place, but I've liked most everything bottled.

    Would certainly pay pal for two tasting glasses. They were never on sale when I went.

    Maybe not the right beer for this cold and gloomy weather, but at least it makes me smile...

    Petrus Aged Pale Ale is really good.

    B. Nektar Zombie Killer too. Lovely concoction of honey, cider and cherry.

    The right beer for this weather. Dangerously smooth, perfectly balanced. 11%.

    This was aptly named cherry funk. Very very funky. Pretty delicious

    Damn just realized the price tag

    Almanac farmers reserve citrus

    This is blowing my mind right now. One of the best sours I've ever had. I need a keg of this. Kegs keep well right and sours age well? Could drink buckets and buckets of it. In hindsight I should've bought every single bottle they had.

    Are they now selling Almanac in NYC? I am still pissed about the whole Shelton bullshit here in Chicago, they're supposed to be back, but I have't seen a single PA beer in a bottle or on tap forever...

    Should be able to find Almanac in NYC but I think Indesertum is still on a very long road trip. (Correct me if I'm wrong) Farmer's Reserve Citrus is definitely one of my favorites from them. Somebody who has access to Prairie Beers should send me a whole heap of them. I'll make it worth your while. :devil:

    From the weekend:
    [​IMG],
    Lot of people on BA have been complaining that it wasn't that good, honestly I think it was just people who were bummed about the hype/trying to talk it down. Personally thought it was amazing, exactly what I'd expect from Lawson's.

    Not pictured: Mikkeller/Grassroots Wheat is the New Hops - So interesting. Funky nose but drinks like a Wit Bier with a slight hop bitterness on the finish. Store around the corner has a few of these, think I might go buy them out.

    Yeah a friend also mentioned that he didn't think the double dose was that good this year

    I finished my road trip and am now in oregon. The almanac I bought in colorado. I thought almanac was from colorado but it turns out it's from San Jose which I'll occasionally visit. I hope it's readily available

    SF actually but I think you can find it anywhere out there. Plenty of great Oregon beers to drink though too!

    interesting on the bottle it says san jose, but on their website it says san francisco. maybe they're based out of SF but brew in San Jose?

    anyways it was delicious

    i think i can get logsdon stuff pretty easily which i am also excited about
