Steeltoe Rainmaker Red. Surprising hops on this one, but a good tasting hopped amber with a slight roasty hint to it. Nice to end the night on.

Was able to find in a local store the Widmer Brrrbon 2010, 2011, and 2012. Bought a 12, but was very tempted to buy the others too. Also bought 2 more Deschutes Abyss. I guess I need to try one before aging them. Ill wait a few weeks for that though.

Red Hook copper hook. Not a bad beer, got a 12 pack variety sampler. I think I like the bottles most of all.

Having a HB'ed Hefeweizen, and staring at my last 2 six packs of home brew. I gotta get busy brewing something. I'm thinking a Stout, and a Bitburger clone...

The one on the left. Cascadian Darkness.
Awesome. Clean hoppy, dry light roasty finish, bright yet black as doooom. Yessir, I will.

It's all about Terrapin Wake n Bake. IMO it's their best brew hands down.

I'd do something like 40% Vienna, 30% pale, pils, or 2 row, 20% malted wheat, and 10% flaked grain of your choice. The flaked grain would be a tweak from this version, replacing 10% of the pale/pils and hopefully giving it better head retention. 10% turbinado sugar by extract, 1.062 OG, 1.004 FG. I used ECY03, wyeast 3726 or 3725 would be good choices, too IMO. Bittered with 1/2 oz Citra at 60, almost 1/2 oz ea nelson/citra at 15 and again at flameout. Dry hopped with oz of nelson for two weeks. I'd probably move first hop addition to 30 or 20 and dry hop with both. I also brewed a version with rye instead of wheat and citra dry hop. Rye/wheat might be better than all one or the other.

Bottle it up in some nice 750 ml corked bottles and take them up over lolo pass to those wonderful Idaho hot springs on the Lochsa and enjoy! Don't get sentimental for home much, especially not in the winter, but I sure do miss a good soak.
Right on Thanks a lot. I'll put it into Beersmith and see what i can get for grains today. Might even brew it this weekend. Way too many empty carboys it's just hard to brew when it's Zero degrees outside so i've been slacking.
