After reading about the supposed glow in the dark Dead Guy Ale growlers earlier today I went looking for them. Found the Dead Guy growler, and it glows in the dark. Also picked up the Hobgoblin since it's gotten great reviews around here. And you can never go wrong with the Trappistes Rochefort, though I've only had the 6.

I'll update as I drink, gotta eat my Whopper to lay down the proper beer drinking foundation first

Everything on the label that's printed in white glows

Is that so you can see it if the light in your fridge goes out?

Nice selection for the evening.

I'm starting off with the Dead Guy Ale. I love this stuff. I haven't had it in close to a year and it's every bit as delicious as I remember. Great balance, great beer

Well, needless to say I never got around to finishing my critiques lastnight. Too busy watching the ALCS and getting druck.

The Hobgoblin was great, vaguely like a Newcastle but 47 times better.

The Rochefort is quite possibly my new favorite beer. It really is what great beer should taste like, too bad it was $5 a bottle...

I found Hobgoblin to be 48 times better than Newcastle

WTF, you pay $5 for a beer at the bar and it no where as good as that!
