Stopped by the bottle store on the way home today and picked up a pretty nice haul. Included are several Belgians I've heard everyone talk about but hadn't tried yet. I'm looking forward to exploring them over the weekend. I'm also going to take Monday off just because, so that makes it even better!

Here's the list:

Piraat
Gulden Draak
Rochefort 10
Westmalle Dubbel
Saison Dupont
Geary's London Porter (Don't know anything about this beer but thought I'd give it a try)
Bellhaven Scottish Stout
Bellhaven Wee Heavy
Batemans XXXB
Rodenbach Flanders Sour Ale (I read in another thread Rodenbachs were getting hard to find and these were on special for $3.99 ea so I picked up two. If that's an awesome deal let me know and I'll go back and pick up the rest!)

And the pictures:

On but off topic, I just grabbed some Delerium Tremens and will be tasting them for the first time tonight.

The Rodenbach is a pretty sweet deal. It's about $7.99 here for the 750mL. Its a good beer but I much prefer the full sourness of the Grand Cru which runs about $9.99. If they had any of those for half price grab all of them you can.

I'm not crazy about Delirium Tremens..I tried Delirium Nocturum last week, also not very impressed. But enjoy! nonetheless
