Nice thread.

Got my monster stout called The Most Noble and Ancient House of Black on the nitrogen tap, but unfortunately I'm out of beer gas.

My Bitterly Brutal IPA should be just about conditioned and ready to go on tap 1.

And I have a 11 month old version of the same beer on tap 2. Dry as a bone. Lots of alcohol, and a lot of fun to taste how it has changed over time.

Cheers

I've got an APA and stout on tap, but we're going out for dinner tonight so I'm hoping for something commercially interesting. I also still have a bottle of Ommegang's Three Philosophers that I was waiting for someone to help me with, but I've run out of patience and plan to blitzkrieg it tomorrow after I have my coffee.

I had this for the first time on Super Bowl Sunday. I can't say that I enjoyed it very much. I still haven't aquired the taste for most belgian-style beers.

I don't have any expectations...just one of those beers I grabbed on a beer spree. I do like some Belgians, such as Leffe, but I'm really not into beers like Hoegaarden (sp?) at this point. My wife loves the Lindeman's krieks, but I find them to be a lot like flavored soda. We'll see. If it bombs, I've got plenty of other options!

Tonight while I am brewing I'll be having some homebrews. Other than that I am most looking forward to the Goose Island Bourbon County Stout I've had in my fridge for about a week now, I hear good things.

Hoegaarden Grand Cru is much better in my estimation than the 'standard'.

I was planning on drinking some homebrew tonight but decided to save it and drink the big bottle of cider that SWMBOM bought me today when she went shopping!

Try Cantillon Kriek. It's nothing like a cherry soda. It's one of the world's more complex and distinctive beers and a work of art.

I agree about the Lindeman's. Sweetened Lambic is not cool.

I haven't been able to get ahold of Ommagang out here, but I'm dying to try it.

gonna have a derail ale from durango brewing co. (no homebrews ready or that interest me right now). its classified as a american style barleywine, but is not quite that strong, 8%, but a very clean, nicely hopped, alcoholic brew. not gonna do to much tonight as i was in a beer pong tournament last night that went on til 2 in the morning. and after drinking all those 5$ pitchers of PBR last night i need some real beer.
