Drank some good beers tonight, had a Rollerdam Red/Great River and Uncommon Stout/Bent River--locals. Along with a buffalo burger in home of "Pickers"(more known now-because of) Leclaire Iowa. At a Sneaky Petes. Food hasnt got much better,but there is more of a selection of beer than there use to be. Then homebound.. had a Widmer Rotator Shaddock Ipa,and sadly the last of my California "un"common which grew on me and for a year old is still very good.Its one I thought I screwed up or infected,turns out I just overcarbed it a bit even though I went with a brew calc. I can say I have never had anything quite like it, I could see it working well into commercial craft beer.Which the Cali. Commons are not well, very common with craft it seems much.

Oh hell yes! Wookey Jack is insanely good. It's in my top 5 for sure.

I'm drinking a Deschutes Hop in the Dark. Not as good as Wookey Jack, but close.

No doubt, had a couple of imperial pints the other night with dinner, so good.

Lagunitas Little Sumpn Sumpn while harvesting my broccoli seed, one of my hispanic coworkers said "...Lagunitas...that mean... little... something" is there any truth to this? My english is nearly as broken as his, so sometimes conversations turn to hilarious misunderstandings within seconds.
Then a Hop Stoopid with the wife, and also a Stone 16th IPA, not as impressive as the Ruination 10, but definately interesting. Will taste in a flight against pliny, simtra, and various barrel aged greatness tomorrow night, and see if I want more.

Just finished up a 16th Anniversary Stone IPA, the 10th Anniversary Ruination was better. Not bad though.

I had a bottle last night. I agree that it's not as good as the Ruination 10th, but it's still a pretty amazing beer.

Yeah, the nose on it is amazing. Just what I expect from stone, and the body and taste were great but that ruination left a very high bar for their stuff.

Brau Brothers HopSession. A little pricey but I think they should can this too. 4.2%-well done. Its like a hoppy lager, to me and pretty grapefruity.Definatly deserves the HopSession title,a great beer? well its gooder?
