Just got back from a trip to the Beer Store and the Homembrew Store. Picked up ingredients for my Winter Brew, as well as the following:

1x Oaked Arrogant Bastard
2x Berliner Wiesse (can't WAIT to see what this really tastes like)
2x Sticke Alt
6x Stone IPA (yummmmmm!)
6x Sierra Nevada Celebration

Mmmm...I cracked a Stone or two at the homebrew store with the owner while we were picking up the recipe. Damn I love this stuff.

What to try next.....?

Whose Berliner Weisse? Not a very easy style to find in the stores... the only one I've tried is DogFish Head's.

sweet sounds like you got a hold of some great beers. I wish I could find a Berliner Weisse.

OOH, I love Arrogant Bastard. But I haven't had the Oaked yet. It's on my list!

I wish I remember who's Wiesse it was. They actually had 2 different manufacturers, but I got 2 bottles of the same one (smaller bottle, $2 cheaper each than the big one).

I want to make one, so I figured I had to buy it to try it first. I'm also making a Sticke Alt along with my regular Alt right now, so I figured I could do some real taste testing.

I dig the AB as well, but I like straight up Stone IPA the best. I've yet to have Ruination, but I saw it on the shelf. Shoulda picked up at least a single or two, but I already hit a $40 beer tab on that I got.

Can't wait to get home tonight so they'll all be chilled and I get to have some fun. Anyone have this year's Celebration yet?

I found my receipt in my pocket while I was sifting around for a quarter at work.

The Berliners were Bayerischer Banhof

The Alts were Uerige Sticke

Sipping on some of the Oaked Bastard right now...mmm.

It's kinda funny - it tastes exactly like I thought it would taste. It mellows out some of the hop flavor of the Bastard a little, but with a nice wooden bite and finish to it.

Head was small (1/8" of a tinted light brown) which fizzled out to just around the sides of the glass. A little lacing, but not too much.

This is definately a good 'warm you up in the winter' kind of brews. I likes it. Not as much as StoneIPA, but good none the less.
