    When I was there cops in Boston called it "Drunksgiving" and hated it because it was so dangerous to even pull people over because another drunk would probably veer at you while you were ticketing. I mean, Boston cops basically hate everybody (they have to deal with Bostonians all year long) but around the holidays they all turned into Louie De Palma. In December they would treat white people like they treated black people!

    Local BBQ place is offering some interesting flights today:

    REVOLUTION Brewing
    - 2019 V.S.O.R.
    - 2017 V.S.O.D.
    - 2018 Double Barrel V.S.O.D.
    - 2019 Cafe Deth

    "Vintage" Flight
    - 2018 Greenbush Delusion
    - 2017 BA Surly Darkness
    - 2017 Bourbon County Stout
    - 2017 Sierra Nevada Vintage Bigfoot

    Both of those sound very interesting to me. Seems kinda strange to be looking forward to beer at 2pm on a Wed., but hey, it's Barrel Aged season .

    Don't have a clue what I want to pursue on Friday, especially if I can get my Revolution fix today. Hailstorm Brewing has some interesting stuff on tap for Saturday so might check that out. Like a kid in a candy store
    Revolution anything is awesome.

    The 2017 BA Darkness is saved by the BA part. That year was missing something in the base. Even then, it is a subpar Darkness version. I dunno about the others.

    I will try to get BCBS/Variants, but won't have an opportunity until about 6pm, due to work. If I miss out, I'm not going to be sad. They're a'ight, but nothing to fret about.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    If you ever find yourself in Colorado, never, and I mean NEVER, buy Elevate vodka from Mile High Spirits.

    I bought one with a chip in the neck and Clint Malarchuk'd my thumb getting it open.

    ETA: Wasn't a chip actually - it had one of those plastic top corks with a little ridge in the glass for a tab to pull the cork up, I tried to twist the top to get the cork moving and caught the ridge (which was seriously knife sharp) and registered 0.5 Muta.

    Rose and a lot of it.

    Hey, it's that time between Christmas and New Year's. I'm not sure what I should be doing.

    Apparently 450 North Brewing in IN (specializes in fruit puree slushie beers, high demand; yeah I didn't know either) was advertising their beer at 8%~ ABV....someone tested it, and it was more around 2.5%...they are facing a big backlash.

    Trader Joe’s wine crushes.

    Their platinum reserve is incredible. Best value in wine.

    Next time I'm in Grand Rapids, I'll have to check out Trader Joe's. If their wine is good, might as well make a stop.

    Re: Drinking Thread: Three Sheets To The Wind

    I had six samplers last night at Hops:

    Alaskan Amber- fine, old favorite, can drink whenever
    Bell's Bright White- wasn't impressed
    Saugatuck Oval Beach Blonde- wasn't impressed
    Short's Soft Parade- fruit beer I actually like. I like it better than Founders' Rubaeus or Blushing Monk.
    Virtue Cider Michigan Brut- way too... harsh. I like my ciders crisp, and this one wasn't it.
    Crane's Hard Apple Cider- Much better.

    Next time I'm at Hops, I'll get the Crane's.

    I figure next time with Bell's, go with the known entity like Two Hearted.

    I'm also growing more interested in ciders. Crane's also has an amazing cherry cider.

    Out your way, I recommend Blake's. A few varieties are offered, and they do sorta make it to MN (they aren't SUPER common, but not rare, either).

    I'm sad, though. Junkyard Brewing, located in Moorhead MN (about 4 hours north of me) is releasing their Barrel Aged Peanut Stout (friggin' amazing) this Sat. Due to impending weather and previous commitments, I cannot go.

    Appearance is thick and black like motor oil and the aroma hits you with flakey butterfinger candy, fudge, cocoa bean, and slight marshmallow. Flavor starts out big with dark fudge that fades into bourbon and oak tannin then delicious peanut butter cup. Fantastically full-flavored.

    Honestly, it's the best of that style in the state. Yes, better than Dangerous Man, which everyone fawns over (yes, DM is top 3, but not the best).

    I've had Blake's Flannel Mouth and Blake's habanero one.

    As God is my witness. It's good. And it tastes exactly as advertised.



    I have often admitted I have the taste buds of a 12-year old girl, and evidently these folks elected to serve me, directly.

    I cannot imagine another person on this planet would like this. I love it.

    This will make you itch for home: Jack Pine Brewing in Baxter MN, makes a TOP-notch S'mores stout. Good Lord is it good.

    If you have a list of ones you have tried with your impressions I would appreciate it. I got this for friends as a joke. Little did I know I would love it, in deadly earnest.
