I ****ing hate kegs today. Lost another brand new tank of gas. I guess my racetrack lid is leaking. Ugh! Bathroom faucet replacement turned bad, I may need a plumber if I can't fix and I'm in a bad mood. Having a coke trying to refrain from the drink. :mad:

I sent you beers to alleviate the pain. I'd open a few or six tonight.

Stone Levitation. Love this beer. Wish it wasn't $12 for a six pack of 4.4%.

Alton Brown homemade salsa. Delicious.

I completely agree. Its still good enough for craft beer drinkers to appreciate, but nothing strange for the BMC crowd to turn their nose up at. I didnt realize how fast my supply of that depleted, I only have 6 left!

That's kind of what I was shooting for ( but missed - unless time is kind ) with my SMaSH.

Change in plans. Since soccer was cancelled, we headed out to my favorite steak joint for dinner (while El Rojo chilled in the sink). I said to the waitress, "do you have IPA on tap?" She responded that they did not. As my frowny face was forming she said, "we replaced the IPA with a new beer...it's an ale...it's called Undercover something..." End frowny face.

Cooking up some paleo bacon chicken alfredo and slugging this growler of Yards Washington Reserve bourbon barrel porter. Not a bad Tuesday evening.

I see you are on the coconut oil bandwagon as well. My wife bought some and she's told me how great it is and how much you can use it for. And it's sat in the cupboard for the past month. Good investment....

You have convinced me that I will have to grab a sixer next time I am at total wine .

Hit a Hardywood tap takeover to pick up prizes for the hb comp this weekend. Tried a strange mix of grand cru, imperial stout and imperial ipa, all barrel aged. Drinkable, but different.

Now on monks blood. Darn pic won't upload.

If you find somewhere that sells it by the 6er, let me know. I've only seen it by the single 500ml bottle.

OK. Two beers that I saw while buying this Griffin Claw and thought I've seen on here:

Monkey King by New Holland
2013 La Folie by New Belgium

Thoughts?

I would get the la folie, no questions asked. Its really sour, but not too much more than ccb american sour you had, and is just incredible overall. I absolutely love la folie.

La Folie is a great beer for entering the sour world if you aren't there already. If you are, I would have it on tap in my kegerator year round if it was possible.

I am not knowledgeable of sours. Should the date concern me or do they do well with age?

EDIT: I knew you'd be the one to chime in on that beer.

Date doesnt matter and in fact most some sours hit their peak after a few years. La folie is pasteurized so it wont change much if at all. I wouldnt hesitate to buy a 2011 if i saw it on the shelves.

Edit: I'm sure most now know my love for this beer :D

I have been meaning to get out to total wine and buy a couple to give them a try since you keep talking them up. I will be on the lookout for a 6er of them as well.

They are pasteurized but shouldn't change much. I have one laying around in my beer alcove though have had a 2012 and a 2013 side by side last summer and they were both darn tasty.
