That's precisely why I stopped trading...theres enough great beer around that I don't feel the need to...for now...Im looking to buy a house next year so I'm on the shelf til then.

I still have that Zhukov, by the way. Took it to DLD and we never got to it. 

I also remember doing the Crank vs Zombie Dust side by side and that's odd since I barely remember what I did on Thursday.

Well, Cycle is at it again...a new bottle release every day next Mon-Fri. All collab BA stouts. I wont be getting any of these, the prices are too high for me unless Im trading them, but Im out of the trading game for a while. Doug is making boatloads of cash next week. From their FB page:

Release Details:

The last beer is in the tank!  We are confident enough to move forward with releasing on Monday, 6/5 at 8AM.  The releases will be M-F, 8 AM each day, limits are TBD as usual.  
We are currently planning to close around 10 AM and reopen in the afternoon at our normal time, it is simply too hot to expect people to hang out all day but the bar staff can opt to stay open if there is demand.  Apologies to anybody looking for that lunch break bottle pick up.   We will post each day when we close (or if we opt not to) just as a reminder so you can check facebook for those times.  

The beers will be as follows:

Monday is ??, a collaborative Imperial Stout with Barrel Aged Coffee brewed with The Answer Brewpub.  This is our first barrel aged coffee bean, we aged Indonesian Sumatra coffee beans in an Angel's Envy barrel.  We will also be selling the coffee beans by the 1/2 lb.  $30/bottle

Tuesday is Friendly Heads Up, a collaborative Imperial Stout with Coconut and Cocoa Nibs brewed with Angry Chair Brewing.  $25/bottle

Wednesday is Bonded In Sin, a collaborative Imperial Stout aged in Double Chocolate Bourbon Barrels brewed with 18th Street Brewery  $25/bottle

Thursday is Home State, a collaborative Barleywine with honey brewed with Toppling Goliath Brewing Co.  Our first Barleywine!  $25/bottle

Friday is Big Adventure, a collaborative Imperial Stout aged in bourbon barrels and then moved from those barrels into cinnamon whiskey barrels with peppers, cocoa nibs and a little bit of vanilla.  We brewed this with Ryan from Casita Our first truly double barrel aged beer!  $30/bottle

As usual, cash only while there is a line, advertised prices are tax included with the cash discount.  ATM's are plentiful in downtown St Pete.  We will tap the beers at 5 PM each day with all of them on tap on Friday.  There will be some shirts coming in at some point during the week, photos of those when they come in, they will be $20 as usual.  Lots of as usual with this, except for the beers themselves.   There will not be any surprises this week but we can't make an promises about the following week.  

Final note, the city changed the parking meters on our block so they don't expire at 6 PM anymore, it is now 8 PM. Start time is still 9 as far as we know but just a heads up.

Was less than impressed with that place and those guys when we were there.

I'm assuming you mean on tap?  Pretty sure the bottles are gone.  They need to do some refining for mega releases like the one on Saturday.  I had to bail on the line 2,5 hrs in.  Pretty bummed!

I live 5 min from there and walked in at 6:30 and the line was just ending.  They had bottles of all three Sunday but probably sold out then.

Any suggestions for Breweries to hit up in Richmond, VA (other than Stone)?

Was able to get 4 bottles of Buckley between last Thursday and Friday.  I live 8.1 miles from there.

Richmond has a ton of great options.  Here are the best I've been to/had recently (although haven't visited in about a year so locals may have current info):

1) The Veil: The most hyped brews in the region.  When I was there can releases were a real s show but if just looking to getting some pours wasn't be a problem.  May want to check them out on facebook to see what is going on the day you visit.  Beers are outstanding though.

2) Mekong/The Answer: Right next to each other, really pretty much the same place.  Mekong has great food and an insane tap list; Answer brews up some ridiculously good beers and has an Andall system where they make their adjunct stouts.  No cans or bottles to go but they do crowlers and growlers of things.  

3) Triple Crossing: Very good NE IPA, last I was there was a little more low key than the Veil but that may have changed.

4) Hardywood:  Wide stable of beers, distributes through most of VA.  Some decent stouts.

Tons of others including 3'Notched, Licking Hole Creek, and Strangeways that may be better for you geographically

Xtra citra and mango guppy are going to be yard/poolwork staples. 

Xtra Citra is great. I don't get Surly in Michigan but it was the best beer I had in Chicago a couple weeks ago.

My last two Funky Buddha Pineapple Beach's. 

Does anyone on here do any beer trades, mainly shelf for shelf not looking at whales?  For example I can get New Glarus while I would love to get my hands on more Funky Buddhas or Terrapin.

In Michigan and I've traded both for shelf stuff and whales. If there is anything in Michigan that you want, I would trade. O can't get Funky Buddha or Terrapin but can get similar MI beers.

They sell it in 12 packs now. Let me know if you ever need/want some and I would be happy to ship some East.

Drinking some Old Ox Hoppy Place. Brewery is pretty close to Ocelot. May have to hit them back-to-back next time I can get out there.

I don't have any on me right now. I can let you know when/should I get some. I think they only sell bottles at the brewery, and otherwise just available on tap near me. But the brewery is about 45 minutes from me, so, while I hope/plan to get out there again, it is hard for me to predict when.

Sebowski is almost certainly the better hook-up option.

No worries and no hurry. Let me know when you go back and I would be happy to send some Chicago goodness in return.

It a a good beer (when fresh) but its the best shelf IPA I can get everywhere within 10 minutes...Id have to drive 20+ minutes for the better stuff and I just didnt have it in me tonight. I drink so much JA Im pretty much sick of it...

And my Civl days are coming to an end...my GF who lives in West Palm just got a great job in  Lakeland and is moving here in 2 weeks...Im stoked and all, but it means no more monthly Civil visits, and the Florida keys are now 5 hours away instead of 2 from her place.. #firstworldprobs

Shoulder on the smoker...about to grab an Xtra citra and back into the pool. The sun crusher I just had was a nice appetizer.  

Bring it on, Funday!

Don't like either team to be honest. If they could both lose I'd be fine with it. Pitt going back to back doesn't bother me one bit. They have two of the best players in the world.  Also gives me hope the Hawks aren't done. 

Anyway, back on topic. Vallejo.

Jai Alai is good....but in my experience, it drops off quickly.  Drink it within the first few weeks.

I recently found a beer that both my wife and I really like.  I found it in a Weis supermarket:

Neshaminy Creek Churchville Lager

It is a Vienna style lager.  I've found that a good Vienna style lager or a good Marzen lager are difficult to come by.  This one is excellent.  The brewery is in Croydon, PA which is in an area known as 'Northeast Philly'.  I might see if I can plan a trip there to check it out.

Yep, I try not to buy it if it's more than 2 weeks old. I recebtly bought a 4 week old 6 pack...it wasn't terrible but the fall off was more than noticeable
