    pretty sure imperial is a synonym for russian imperial and refers to when a brewery in London made an ale for catherine II's court that had enough alcohol and hops to withstand the long journey.

    If anyone in NYC still wants Blushing Monk they somehow still had a few bottles at the Whole Foods in Battery Park.

    You really liked the Breckenridge? I've been consistently underwhelmed with their offerings.

    Alright, so I need a place to stash this beer now more than ever. Space is tight at my new place.

    Also, I'm pretty setup now, so if you want some of the Zhukov, let me know.

    Sorry, I'd like to but there's pretty much no way I'll be able to get back there to buy it. If I somehow am able to get back there and they still have it I'll let you know.

    I just keep all mine in a cabinet and move it to the fridge when I want to drink it. I really wouldn't worry about having something special to store it in as long as it's dark and the temperature is relatively stable.

    Its a condo, so cabinet and fridge space are at a minimum. That's why I want a small fridge, so I can kill two birds with one stone.

    Rambo, I'd be more than happy to take one of those and anything else from Cigar City off your hands.

    Tried out 2 brews tonight:

    Anderson Valley Oatmeal Stout - meh. middle of the road and certainly not near the best I've had.

    Weyerbacher Merry Monk's - my current love affair with this brewery's rarer offerings continues. This is an excellent Belgian Golden ale. A bit of sweetness really brings out the flavor.
