Pick up a Rochefort 6 and 8 to drink in succesion with the 10. Me and SWMBO did this and it was good night by the fire outside. We split each bottle so we didn't get too buzzed and were able to tast them each. Also did this with the 11 oz bottles of Chimay Red White and Blue. Have to say blue was my fav.

If I had that score, I'd set back one each of the Ruination and Double Bastard and a harvest just for comparisons.
Only thing I have aging is a Vertical 08. I hope it makes it till 2012

Nope....It took 3 stores in Colorado Springs to manage that haul!

BTW..We are going to DaveCo this weekend. I'm trying to try and formulate a written list to get while there...they have EVERYTHING!
I'm after a LaFolie, Pliney, Maybe some Blind Pig...of they have it.

What Else?

That's why I got 2!
I'm starting the cellar for the Holiday Ales....Someday, I'll whip out a vertical tasting of Holiday Brew that will blow your socks off. Right Now, I'm hoping to gather double Bastard, Breckenridge Christmas Ale, and Sierra Nevada Celebration.

All of which reminds me...

I need to head over to Tipsy's and get a bottle of Chartreuse. Family tradition.

Family tradition being the menfolk sitting around the table, groaning underneath the weight of homemade pasta, sauce, meatballs, italian sausage, garlic bread, spumoni, pie, beer, wine, bourbon, and coffee while sipping chartreuse and swapping dirty jokes.

Good times.

If you find an O'dell's Woodcut, buy it, even at $25+ a bottle.
Rodenbach Grand Cru.
Oaked Bastard.
Breckenridge 471 IPA

For starters...

Planning on making a trip to a few locations. I'm bleesed to live within 10 miles of a world market and a Majestic that stocks a very respectable collection of brew.

Oh and Pilsner Urquell on tap is leagues better than the bottled stuff. Totally different beer, the best pilsner in the world if you ask me.

I totally agree with the Alaskan Choice, but the La Rosa? Makes me feel like I am at a cheap Italian joint with checkered table cloth's that is run by a Korean Family. Time and place I guess.

Be sure to keep the old eye peeled for:
Allagash Curieux
Speakeasy brewery - Hoppy
Anderson Valley Oatmeal Stout - Malty
Ballast Point Porter or IPA - Really balanced
Moose Drool - Smooth
Bear Republic Racer 5 - Hoppy
Anchor Brewing Christmas Ale - Super Spiced up
Chau Tien*** - Sierra Nevada's old brewer left and created this asian style beer up at Anderson Valley, nice guy though the beer tastes a lot like SN brewed by Budweiser.

I know this is a pretty west coast (read California) skewed list, but they are worth the time and money if you can try them once. Not sure if you wanted malty or hoppy so put up a good mix

***not a beer I really enjoyed, though interesting to see where the SN people branched

PS... our "local" bottle shop here is Beverages and More and they have a great selection of beer. Try 21st Amendment as they are in cans. Their Watermelon is unique. Click the little beer tag at the top of the page and then hit craft brew off to the left. Shipping is well priced too.

Default Missed but did OK!

Well, I had all the best intentions of going to DaveCo Liquor in Denver. It's the worlds LARGEST liquor store. That is all fine and good, but it's to hell and gone north of where we were...nearly 30 additional Miles one way. So I went to Apple Jacks. GREAT PRICES! I got a full case (2 x 12 pack) of Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale for under $30!

Here is the Score.


Case of SNCA, 2 bottles La Folie. Bunratty mead, Chaucers Mead, 2x SN Harvest Ale, 1 Ruination IPA, 2 Double Bastard, 2 Vertical Epic ( I want the rest of the series!), 2 fat tire, 2 1554, and a 6 pk of Abby Dubble!

Now I know what you are all thinking....but this is it till we do a Christmas Shopping Weekend, and I needed some duce bottles to send out with Home Brew. The Fat Tire and the 1554 were $2.50 each, and they are both quite drinkable.

I will be BREWING with the next lump of cash that I get my paws on!
