I am on a Green Flash kick at the moment. It's my brewery du jour.

Currently imbibing (literally, at the moment):




I bought them at room temperature at Total Wine (greatest store ever). The first one I allowed to get too cold in the freezer. The second was cool and a better temperature.

This pours pitch black, like motor oil black. You can definitely taste chocolate, malt, coffee. It's fairly boozy at 8.8 ABV, so don't rifle them down like a Guinness or Murphy's.

Also have in the fridge:



I don't know if this is their "answer" to Russian River's Pliney the Younger, but it's their triple IPA.

Anyone use the app UNTAPPD (Untapped without the E)?

Keeps track of what beers you have had and where you had them. Pretty cool.

One of my favourites...they also have a non-nitro milk stout that is very good as well...

Arrogant Bastard finally made it over the border to Canada...not sure what I expected but it wasn't worth the wait...

I think I'm going to buy a home brewing kit this winter. Can anyone give me a good starter kit?

I had a couple of these yesterday. I wish I had found it earlier in the summer.

The best way I can describe it is by asking you to try imagining a Shock Top being a reel beer.

It's has an orange tint to it. The smell is definitely citrus. It's not too boozy at 6.5%. I could drink this in an extended drinking setting like a BBQ or tailgate on a hot day.

Brewer's Best make great kits...and assuming Austin Home Brew Supply or Mid-West Supplies would be an option for you state-siders...

This is an awsome home brew machine. It is an all in one brew cycle
It runs round $2900.00 but would be well worth the money over the years.

Just had a Harvest Shandy from Leinie. Surprisingly good. Liquid pumpkin pie in a beer.

I will wait until the leaves turn for something like that. Wait, I'm in S. California so I will have to at least wait until the temperatures drop into the mid-70s. It has been a brutal end to the summer here.

Below is the worst beer ever. I don't know how far east Trader Joe's goes, but they are known for having local or quirky stuff at a reasonable price. My GF went there and I asked her to get me a 22 bomber of something. I don't know what it is, but she has a knack for picking beers I will really like.

So she comes home with this Boatswain Double IPA; I've never heard of it, but it's right up my alley. I expect a citrus or piney hop bomb. This is swill, utter shite, as bad a beer as I have had in the last 5 years. This was not an IPA of any reasonable, forget a double, expression. Imagine Steel Reserve making what they call an IPA. This is it. I dumped at least half out. It was utterly undrinkable.



Effing filth, this was just gross.
