Default The VA haul

If you're a fellow chatter, you should know about my discontempt for TN liquor laws (i.e., can't sell anything > 6.0% abv unless in a liquor store, so selection is mediocre).

$210 later, this is the final haul. I apologize for lack of pictures, but the wife has the digital camera while she's back in her homeland of England.

Dogfish Head World Wide Stout
Dogfish Head Black and Blue
Dogfish Head Olde School Barleywine
Stone XI Anniversary

Wild Primitive Flemish Ale (SpoonWhacker)
Weyerbacher Double Simcoe

Allagash Grand Cru

Allagash Curieux
Podge Belgian Imperial Stout
Gueze Girardin 1882
Smuttynose IPA
Smuttynose Winter Ale
Bell's Kalamzaoo

Hmm, I didn't realize Ommegang put out those seasonal brews. Impressions of those would be greatly appreciated when you get to it .

The Chocolate Indulgence was great, but nothing spectacular. I didn't get much chocolate-ness out of it, but it was still solid. The Ommegeddon will go in the cellar for about a year.

Shhhh! Just kidding, Evan! was awesome as I have pointed out in another thread. I think he gave me one beer from everything he currently has bottled right now including the Meph clone which I'll sit on for a while.

Where did you come to in Virginia? I am just across the state line on I-81. I know of a few good places locally, but am curious where you picked up some of those.
