    Drinking a almost three-year-old Cran-bic tonight. Pretty good, the sweetness died down a bit. Think its better fresh though.

    Weihenstephaner Korbinian. Blows away any doppelbock I've had to date. I also picked up a bottle of Vitus and Schneider Aventinus to do a little taste test, but that will have to wait.

    Attending the Great American Beer Festival tomorrow in Denver. 580 breweries...2,700 beers. I....can't....wait.

    http://www.greatamericanbeerfestival.com/

    Any must try recommendations, SFers?

    ...

    The beer'll come out, tomorrow,
    Bet your bottom dollar, that tomorrow,
    There'll be beer,

    Just thinkin' about, tomorrow,
    Clears away the cobwebs and the sorrow, till' there's none,

    When I'm stuck with a day, that's grey and lonely,
    I just stick out my chin, and grin, and say,

    Oh, the beer'll come out tomorrow,
    So you gotta' hang on till' tomorrow,
    Come what may.

    Deep Ellum Brewing Farmhouse Wit - quite nice. Nothing all that surprising but it's crisp and bright with a nice hint of yeasty funk.

    Ska Brewing Mole Stout - huge let down. The flavors are nice enough but it's too thin for a stout and too flat for anything else. I had high hopes for this as Modus Hoperandi, their IPA, is one of my favorite beers.

    ya Modus really is the highlight.

    on a similar note, always heard rave reviews of Revolution Brewery, never had them. picked up a 6-er of cans of their Anti-Hero IPA. Its more refined than Modus, but I just cant get into it. I'm just finishing up a bomber of their Coup D'Etat Saison, and I was hoping for some serious funk but its moderate at best. I've heard so much about the brewery, I'm disappointed and will be hesitant in the future.

    Also picked up some of Green Flash/St. Feuillien's Friendship brew. I'm not one to read reviews but when I only see one review on beeradvocate, I'm game to try it... plus I can't recall ever having a "black saison" before. I have no idea what the taste cutter is but it seems like obnoxious amounts of ginger. whatever, it was pretty good.

    Foothills Brewing Co. Hoppyum IPA is a great beer that is worth trying

    [​IMG] Best pumpkin ale I've ever had. Don't know if it's available outside of TX or not.

    If you like pumpkin ale, two must tries: Avery's "Rumpkin" -- a 17% ABV knock you on your ass fall delight; and the much smoother, but very spicy and aromatic Upslope's Pumpkin Ale, which won Gold at last year's GABF and is finally being released in stores.
