    Is home brewing a good experience??? I might give it a try. They have all types of hops, malt, etc.. at the whole foods downtown.

    Drank a B.O.R.I.S. the crusher tonight (not the barrel aged). Pretty good. But I prefer Breakfast Stout.


    I started this a few months ago. You'd be surprised at how good the beers even after a few attempts. Would be tough to do in NYC due to space constraints, though.

    I'd check out the Binny's in Elmwood Park on North Avenue or Famous on Madison, you might get lucky...

    For sure. I wonder if Marion Street will get some as they often have a lot of GI's limited releases?

    I wouldn't doubt it, but it seems to be leaking out slowly and randomly for some reason. I'd ask whoever the beer buyer is and try and find out, I am on the hunt for Firestone Walker Abacus right now, so if you happen to come across it let me know!

    Almost anything out of Stone Brewing. Arrogant Bastard, Levitation... even a couple of their stouts, which is noteworthy because I'm definitely not a fan of stouts.

    It depends on the circumstances, though... if I'm pairing it up with a meal I'll usually go for a brown ale or a lager. If I'm just in the mood for a beer, IPA. The hoppier, the better. I want my IPAs to have an IBU past the human threshold. There's a brewery in Georgia called Terrapin. They've got a couple IPAs called "Monks Revenge" and "Hopsecutioner." Great stuff. I just cracked open a bomber of Sierra Nevada's 30th Anniversary Helles Bock and it was really good. Rogue Hazelnut Brown was also very good; the only Rogue brew I've had that I didn't enjoy was John John's Junpier Ale. It's a Pale Ale, but it had some really unpleasant notes that I can only assume were the juniper.

    I've got a bomber of Double Bastard sitting on the shelf, calling to me. Soon.

    Hey! Terrapin. [​IMG] Good Lord, though. I can practically taste that stout just looking at it; black coffee and bitter dark chocolate.

    Now I'm enjoying a Black Oak Arkansas from Kuma's Corner and a Brooklyn Local 2.

    Tell me you were having a burger there too.

    Ah, haven't been in awhile. Think I had the pantera the last time I was there.

    Is the GI Big John any good? Imperial stout? Have not seen that in NYC. I don't have any GI in my stout stash. Maybe i will try Nightstalker [​IMG]
