    I'm not 21 and went with my dad who I was expecting to be annoyed if I dragged him around buying beer he doesn't like. We ended up going to both though. New Beer was slightly cheaper and had more 6 packs, but it was probably 95 degrees in there so I bought from Whole Foods instead. They had a few bottles of Blushing Monk at both stores if anyone's interested.

    Damn! I can't get to the stores until lunch time tomorrow. I bet the Blushing Monk will be sold out. At least I finally got my hands on 2 bottles of Parabola (@ a whole foods in las vegas for $14.99).

    I'm attempting to get a few more bottles of Blushing Monk. I didn't realize just how much people wanted it when I bought the one today. If I find it I'll let people know.

    It's possible you could find it, there were at least 5 bottles between the two stores at about 3 today.

    Thanks. I would ask my distributor friend to buy some of the Blushing Monk for me... but I had him order 3 cases of Devil Dancer for his store and it hasn't sold at all. So he is pretty pissed off at me.

    I will try my luck at lunch time. If they don't have Blushing Monk, i am sure they will have some other stuff. Maybe I will get more of the Solar Eclipse.

    Oh wait...I have the same raspberry theme planned for the girlfriend and myslef which will include a cheese that has been soaked in Raspberry Tart as well. I am finalizing the list of beers, but here is what we are working with so far:

    – Founders Blushing Monk
    – Founders Rubaeus (Blushing Monk's base beer)
    – Cantillon Rose De Gambrinus
    – Hanssens Experimental Raspberry
    – Lost Abbey Framboise de Amorosa

    Evil Twin Disco Beer. Sorry for the crappy cell phone pic, I can't find my camera cord. One of the biggest heads I've ever seen on a beer, it took like 5 minutes to pour it like that. Oaked Arrogant Bastard did the same thing and they're very similar beers. So similar that I'm not sure this was worth $9 for one 12oz bottle.

    If you like the New Glarus Raspberry, you might try their Belgian Red which has Door County cherries. Personally I find all the New Glarus drinkable but don't buy any of it for myself, that may be burnout from living in WI though.

    Any idea how they brew it and get that raspberry flavor? I have access to some nice raspberries and I may be able to recreate this.

    ^Had that the other day. I liked it. Wished it came in regular sized bottles though. Might be a contender with Old Rasputin.

    Had a Surly Smoke that I scored off a local guy, since my other bottle got stolen. Really, really fucking good stuff. That could definitely be a regular drinker.

    Then I had a Piraat and the new Cigar City Humidor IPA - which is just their regular Jai Lai IPA but brewed with cedar. It tasted like somebody had dropped a shoe tree in my beer. Fucking hated that.
