That way, someone can come in late and still contribute. Also, if for some reason a discussion starts, it can continue for more than a couple days before getting pushed aside by the next week's beer.

Maybe what I'll do tomorrow is start the Taddy Porter tasting in it's own thread, and we'll just keep this one for updates and questions.

Sounds good to me, Brewsmith. Now, if I can only lay my hands on some Taddy Porter! There was none at the store SWMBO went to yesterday, and I doubt I'll have a chance to go shopping anywhere else today or tomorrow.

I kept looking, but must have missed this thread in the new posts. I've found it now, and am sorry I missed the Fat Tire week, as I really like Fat Tire, and just put my second FT clone in the ale pail.

I just printed the list of upcoming beers, and will talk to the beer suppliers today, at the grocery store that I work at too see what they can get me. We have a pi$$ poor beer selection in our town, but they say they have all kinds of stuff that they only sell in other towns. So here's crossing my fingers.

PS. I'm mostly just posting here to get this thread listed in 'My Replies'.

I'm not sure if you guys have done threads like this before or not, but this is a great idea. I'm always looking for a new excuse to stop by one of my favorite beer stores and pick something up. I'm probably out for the Taddy Porter as I've made two trips already this week. SWMBO and all.... But I'm definitely in for the Celebrator next week.

Picked up my bottle at lunch today. Haven't had a porter in a while, looking forward to testing my palate.

I'll be updating the thread tonight for the month of March. Threads for previous weeks will remain open for further tastings and comments. In honor and tradition of Lent, March will be Doppelbock month.

Now, here's one I know I can get. I'm still ticked that I couldn't find any Taddy Porter around. Of course, since some folks are shooting laser beams at my eyes tomorrow morning, I may have to send SWMBO back out beer shopping.

The good news is that I already have the better part of a sixer of Optimator hanging around for that tasting!
