Most are brews I cannot get locally, pretty pumped.



I live in Chicago, so even yeungling, which is abundant on the east coast is a rarity to me. Delicious too.



Took a brewery tour of allagash up in Portland, ME. Slick setup they got. Grabbed a couple Curieoux while I was there.





And some wine and port we picked up in New Hampshire. Haunted Whisper vineyards is the label (Danbury, NH), solid wines that I would recommend to any wine drinker. And to anyone that lives nearby it, visit the place, its gorgeous. Plus, free samples! The owner was super cool.

That's a pretty sweet looking haul! Is there any Smutty Nose in there? I tried it while visiting NYC and found it pretty darn tasty.

I kinda wish I would have bought more of it, it was only $2.50. So if I really enjoy it i will kick myself.

I'm in RI and we cannot get yeungling which I am a big fan of.

Didn't see the 'gannsett till just now. That's definitely a staple of our diet.

Where did you pickup the Yuengling? I don't think I've ever seen it in New England before?
