    Heady out of a can is so much better than on draft. More resin, more texture, and the aromas and flavors are out of this world. Maybe the simple act of pouring from a tap dissipates the flavors and aromas. Also abner in a growler a few days after pouring is just outstanding. Even my non beer friends thought it was amazing

    Just goes to show tasting an oz or two in line isn't really representative of the beer. Gotta wait a little and drink it over a few hours.

    I regret not buying a growler of society and solitude #5 even if it wasn't that good in tastings

    Had my first Mikkeller tonight. Not Just Another Wit. Lived up to the hype, IMO. Strong but not at all boozy. Smelled almost like cream soda.

    Greenbush is a south-western michigan brewery I've heard great things about but have yet to pick anything up from or make the trip to. I'm in South Bend,IN which has everything 3F available and Prairie stuff (though it's not moving). As far as I know you'll have to cross over into Chicagoland to get anything Pipeworks. Jealous if you're going to Brewery Vivant! Chicago market gets it but we don't.

    Skull Splitter by Orkney Brewery is absolutely delicious. Perfectly balanced liquorice notes.

    Opinions on this BA thread? Basically, a guy found out through backchannel means about an unannounced beer being released, so he posted about it on Beeradvocate. The brewery didn't appreciate that at all, and pretty much told him as much. This brewery also asks for help from volunteers in bottling. The guy wasn't a volunteer, but he somehow managed to get access to one of those pre release bottles, which aren't supposed to even be drank until the release day since they're bottle conditioned sours, much less given out to people. He posted a short review on the BA thread, prompting the brewery to ban him from purchasing this beer from them at all. I'm surprised it hasn't been picked up by beer blogs, it's a pretty unique situation. I support the brewery though, the guy seems like a dick who just wanted to brag that he was the first to know something.

    Ha. That thread is a mess. The op didn't come off as much of a dick, though; to me it reads like the brewery and BA in general are a bit uptight.

    Finally got around to trying Founders Dissenter. Good stuff, but there are a lot of similar beers I like that are considerably easier to get.

    Was surprised and excited to see Blind Pig on draft at a bar, but it confirmed that, despite my efforts, I'm just not an IPA guy.

    This was probably the biggest disappointment of the year... Had two small sips...
