What kind of beer is everyone drinking tonight?


Recommended Posts

Hardywood Bourbon Barrel Barleywine Ale. Local Virginia brewery. Good stuff.

Hardywood is a great brewery. I love their bourbon barrel porter. There is a Northern Virginia Brewery opening in about 4 weeks that I am really excited about...

I think you'll like it.

I went with a Half Acre Senita IPA (formerly Heyoka)...wow I really like this one a lot. Juicy and dank. This would definitely be in my rotation if it was available locally. Love the hops in this one. Great beer.

I'll have to look for their porter. Also bought their Raspberry Stout today, but haven't opened it yet.

Looking forward to checking out the new one.

On my way to get some Ballast Point Grapefruit and Habenero Sculpin IPA. Going to be a good night.

Well it took two stops but I got em. Just had the grapefruit thought it was great.

Aldo picked up Dogfish Head 90 IPA and Stone Ruination IPA. Enjoying the Stone now damn it's good.

The Maple Bacon Coffee Porter is the main one I can't wait to try. Its the #3 porter right now on BA, ahead of Last Snow and Victory at Sea.

You try Victory yet? Last Snow is being consumed right now, tough call on which is better between it and Victory. Great porter, thanks GB!!

Having the Ballast Point Victory at Sea now, courtesy of Hawks.

Its pretty damn good. I like it almost as much as Last Snow. Great porter. I think the 10% ABV is what knocks it down a slight notch for me, I'm not a fan of feeling alcohol heat in beer...not that this has a lot, but I can feel the heat a tad.

I'm just now starting to like coffee flavors in beers. Ive still never met an Imperial Stout I like, but I'll buy this when it becomes available locally. Thanks, bruddah!

Edit: as this Porter warms it gets smoother and taster. The coffee is strong with this one.

Trying to decide if I can swing a trip to Rapp Monday afternoon for the Gose bottle release...only 40 cases bottled (is there 6 or 12 750ml in a case?) so it is extremely limited...I could probably get 3 bottles, of which I could trade one or two...but I'm going to the Funky Buddha kickoff Wednesday and really shouldn't do both...dammit I have no discipline. Its friggin beer week, so I should just suck it up and go to both.

Dammit.

Finishing the morning with a East Clintwood (thanks to Hawks). Solid APAs aren't talked about much, but this one is super solid. In fact, it's as good as Maine Beer Co's Mo, IMO.

This is why trading rules - the hidden gems you can find are awesome.

Glad you like that one! I have now finished all of my FL beer :kicksrock:

Sebow, when does your brewery open? Any updates or pics??

First new day was yesterday. 14hrs all told at the brewery yesterday. Celebrated with my last Bourbon County Rare and Nelson. The rarest beer I own, and the greatest beer I own.

2nd brew day going on right now. Much smoother. Should be pouring these first batches as a soft opening in 3-4 weeks. Big grand opening party in May.

Where is the brewery again? I know it was posted but I can't remember.

is there a brewfest thread? With a brewfest almost every month between now and forever (NorCal) I'm sure more than a few fbg's will be at the same one, mini meetup?

Kind of disappointed that there will only be 22 participating brewers, usually there are 30+ at this one, but that is still a ####load of beer considering they usually each bring at least 3 different types. This year I'm going to try and make it past the first hour without being completely ####faced....

Half Acre Senita IPA. Man I love this beer. I'd drink this regularly if I could get it here. Nice pick, Hawks. I wouldn't have thought about it if you didn't recommend it.

:banned:

Yes.....doing a London/Amsterdam/Paris trifecta.

It was fantastic. I kept it refrigerated since release. It was better than the last time I had it a year or so ago when I thought it was falling off.

This thread may not be the best fit for this but I am disappointed in Bells bringing up a lawsuit against Innovation Brewing. I have drank tons of Bells and I am not familiar with their 'bottling innovation since 1985' slogan.

Can't we all just get along and drink beer :banned:
