Just look at how they helped out many craft breweries during the hop shortage in 2008: Sam Adams Hop Shortage Philanthropy.
Hey now, all I said was I didn't like that one brew. Many of my go to beers are out of a Sam Adams Sampler when I start falling short on cash and homebrew. I can get one of those for 10.99 on a good day, the same price as many of the 4-6 packs of other stuff. You just won't ever catch drinking BMC.

I am in San Antonio visiting my family and I have been drinking modus all week! Fell in love with it last year when I was in town.. I will be smuggling a 6 pack of Modus, a bottle of decadent, and a bottle of ranger creek whiskey home with me!
Both ranger creek whiskeys are awesome. I love Rimfire.

I may have to bring back a bottle of that as well.

Have you had any of the small batch beers? I saw #5 at gabriel's but didn't know much about it.

#5 is a dopplebock but they are having a little issues with thoses. Most are super over carbonated and possibly infected. I say try their other offerings like OPA, Smoked porter, Le Beast. I havent open #5 yet to find out but #3 & $ were over carbed and 3 was pretty much bubble gum but definitely get the Rimfire you wont be disappointed

Had some time before class thought I would swing by the house check up on things, have a coffee and a cigar. Turns out I packed all my cigars, and the local cigar/pipe shop wasn't open yet. So here we are French pressed Columbian, and the finest cigar the shell station had to offer.



Billy I grabbed something out of the house just for you. Can you spot it?

I know what it feels like, a few years back I lost my best friend. He came up to my house warming party had to be back on base at 0600 so he drank a few in the afternoon, called it quits, and then left at 3am. Fell asleep at the wheel. I'll never get over the guilt.

Death is trying for sure mate, but with friends and family, you have blessings that can help you get through the hard parts.

I pour out an allagash dubbel for him every year. Was his favorite brew.
