    I have a fridge only used for beer. It's set at themax temp (7C° // 44.6F). Yes: that's slightly too cold, but I reckon it's better for the beer seeing as how the temp is consistent, it's dark and not too dry...

    If I really wanna age a beer, I cellar it at my mate's...

    And yes: corked beers (mainly lambic in this case) flat, capped bottles kept vertical. The big bottles are never around too long so no rules apply to them, although of course vertical stored bottles in the door are for consumption, horizontal ones will be stored vertical for a couple of days before opening 'm...

    A fridge is cheap. Just get one that uses fuck all in energy, and is big enough. It sure beats buying a wine fridge... Plus you can buy this and just set your temp at whatever it is you want (I've been thinking about doing this, but was wondering whether it would also fuck with the temp of my freezer compartment on the bottom, anyone?):

    Got a case of one day old on the wings of Armageddon. So good. Has this nice grapefruit peel aroma to it. Can't believe it's a single hop

    Many "Frog's Breath" IPAs at Coronado Brewing Co. Several 435 IPAs too. FB citrusy and spicy. 435 a very nice break from overtopped errthang.


    Thought it worth mentioning they were recently named World Beer Cup Champion for mid-size brewery and brewmaster, along with taking gold and silver medals for a couple of their brews.

    So the guy that's hooking me up with a bottle of KBS says he's adding 5 other beers... So far he has come up with 4. Looks promising :slayer:

    had KBS this weekend. tasty, but people are seriously going crazy over this stuff. dumb.

    apparently 470 cases of black note were sold at Bell's in a 24-36 hour period. incredible.

    KBS is good, but not better than Bourbon County. I enjoyed a bottle of Grassroots Convivial Suarez while watching the Masters yesterday, beautiful beer.

    Picked this'un... Sealed with black wax!.. And poured a black beer with a tan head... Which I emptied in the sink after half of it...
    Very poor in the nose, unbalanced and way too boozy (whiskey, not bourbon)...

    I haven't had this year's KBS, but I thought this year's Bourbon County (plain--never sampled any of the variants) was excellent.

    I've still got like 5 bottles...

    The Two Brothers 17th anniversary Rye Ale was really cool.

    Thai Basil and Milk Sugar...worked out to being a lovely beverage.
