Yeah I had my stupid reasons. But today I actually looked closer at them and decided on the Hoppy Feet. I'll be trying more from them I'm sure.

Clown Shoes is great! Haven't had a bad one yet. Personally, I love the name, I've been calling my buddies clown shoes for years. The labels are nice too, even if I didn't love Tramp Stamp, I'd buy it here and there.

Oh, and the Blaecorn Unidragon label is pretty cool looking too.

Not sure what kind of beer you're into, but if you're into IPAs, the Miracle IPA is amazing. I will definitely be picking another couple bombers of that this weekend while I am up visiting the in-laws. If stouts are more your style, Blaecorn Unidragon and Vampire Slayer are both awesome imperial stouts. I personally wasn't blown away by Tramp Stamp, but it is still a damn fine Belgian IPA. The only one I have that I haven't tried yet is Hoppy Feet 1.5, but I'll more than likely crack that while I am mashing my brew this weekend. I really want to try their pecan pie ale, but I haven't seen it yet.

HF 1.5 is ~1.5 times better that Hoppy Feet.

Enjoying my own "Unbind These Roots", a smoked porter aged on oak and brewed with serrano and poblano peppers. Delicious.

It works really well.


Haven't had this in awhile, always one of my favorite strong ales.

Orkney makes some [email protected] fine traditional Scottish beers. This one's a great smoking beer and will definitely end with a cigar. Dark Island is great if you want a malty session brew. After revisiting this, I'm much happier with the way my No. 3 Burton pale is coming along.
