So SWMBO and I made a trip up the east coast to visit her family for Christmas. We decided to drive (through every state on the east coast except Florida in fact) so that we could bring the dogs. So this meant I would have the back of the SUV we were driving to bring back some beer. I stopped at a small store in Freeport, ME that let me make mixed 6-packs.

SWMBO's family is from New Hampshire so I picked up a couple mixed 12 packs of the local stuff.

We also were able to make it over the Portsmouth Brewing Company. Had some good beers and dinner there. They sell 22 oz bottles of some of their stuff, we grabbed a couple of those to bring home. Here they are plus some other stuff (homemade chokecherry wine, etc.)

Well, that is all that I bought for myself. I also got quite a few things as gifts. Here is a 27oz pound of Bravo hops from hops direct.

Also got a few books, some good nips, and my first issue of Zymurgy (birthday gift from SWMBO) was waiting when I got home. I also got a $30 gift certificate to Northern Brewer (not shown).

Those first 2 pics look like the shelf at my local package store. Except for the Woodstock, I've had them all. The Dodfish 120 and the Shipyard Export would be my top 2 from those. Hope you enjoy them

Bah! I have been looking for the Dogfish 120 around here forever!

Great hall, though.

You did not own a copy of Designing Great Beers?! That's preposterous! Just kidding, you got some great gifts. What's that small bottle of Bailey's?

I know, crazy. I had read most of it down at the Borders, not sure why I never bought it though.

It is Baily's with Mint Chocolate. They make it with caramel too, I have had that, very good when you want something very sweet.

I love the Pigs Ear Brown from woodstock definitly one of my favorite beers. Very dark and malty. It has been a while since i have had one, i gotta go buy a six pack and try to recreate it. I like the woodstock beers, different flavors i feel.

I've only had a few beers out of your selection, I enjoyed Old Thumper and the Shipyard IPA. I can't seem to find DFH 120 around here anywhere - I've been looking for over a year.
