Nice haul,
you've got a few of my favorites, a few that are on my list to try, and ...
one other...
Anyway, have you had the Old #38 from Northcoast? Old Rasputin is fantastic, but imagine all that goodness, but drinkable enough that you can reasonably go through several in a sitting. Definitely my favorite stout.

Here's mine for the weekend
[IMG][/IMG]
The Averys are already gone. I've had the Ale to the Chief and wanted more. The 15th Anniversary was a first for me and the neighbor. We are both heading back for more.
Alesmith Anvil and Wee Heavy= established favorites
Smithwicks = New session beer obsession
Bison Red = Liked their Saison and the proceed from this one go to fight cancer, so...
Cheers Brotha have a good weekend.

And yes, I haven't had stuffed grape leaves in a long time. I saw them at the deli and I had to have them. They were swell.



......back to Rock band......

Hey I have those same plates.

Anyhow.. please let me know what you think of Rogue's Old Crustacean, I've been eyeing it for awhile now but wasn't sure if I wanted to shell out the $17 for it. I'm used to spending less than that on good wine.

How's the Brett character on that? I'm curious, I have one but I haven't chilled it yet. Everything Avery I have had rocks my world, so this beer has gotta be good...

I like Old Crustacean. I bought some to drink and some to age. The ceramic bottles are cool and yeah, they are spendy but I think the quality is ther eto justify the cost.

Yeah, SWMBO has been bugging me for them forever....so I finally caved.


I won't be opening the old crustacean for a while....it is one of my cellar beers.

Fan-Fcuking-tastic. You don't have to hunt for the tartness on the palate. It is right there, but is perfectly balanced with a sweetness and spicyness that makes this a surprisingly easy drinking beer for the flavors involved.
