San Luis Obispo, smack dab in between both Firestone locations, and there beer is at least two months old by time it hits the shelves here.

That's sounds good. It's a toss up for me between Old Chub and Robert the Bruce by 3F. It's cold here in Chicago today and a nice Scotch Ale sounds perfect.

The D3100 can take just as good pictures as any other camera as long as light and framing is right.

Finally decided to try one of the new Leinenkugel's. This one's the Snowdrift Vanilla Porter. It looks just a hair darker than my Cooper's English bitter,with roasty overtones that aren't harsh. The vanilla's on the back,reminicent of the flavor from oaking. not bad at all.

Cool video to watch. Pretty much drives home the point.

I was able to find Firestone Double Jack for 4.99 @ Costco, and Sculpin for 6.49. Not bad!

This is pretty freaking awful. I haven't had Narragansett in years so I thought I'd give it another try when I saw they were coming out with styles other than the BMC style lagers. Bad idea. It's very harshly bitter, no hop flavor and very little hop aroma. Its only redeeming quality is that its got enough malt backbone to keep it from being like drinking grass tea.
