I can't claim this was what I was drinking "tonight" but my excuse is that I've been on a beer tour in Belgium and couldn't post every day.

Oh, how sad, you couldn't post every day.  Doing a FARKING BEER TOUR IN BELGIUM...  you lucky devil....

Ha, yeah, what Mike said.

NICE! Have you tried the Yang? The ultimate black and tan  ::)
Had the Yin and Yang black and tan on tap at BSP yesterday.  I don't think I've ever had a black and tan before, but it was nice.  I prefer a stout by itself though.

Just finished my last hopslam of the year.  I thought I had finished them about a month ago, but found one in what is becoming many many boxes of beer kept underneath the stairs.  Wish I had gotten to this one earlier; Hopslam really falls off quick, huge difference between one of these fresh and one of these after 4 months.

I have a few quotable beers that were set aside and forgotten.  I will bring a few of them to the forefront this week so I can weed through the "old" beerz in my garage fridge...

No these are not pictures of a foreign land and their breweries but here are some pics of some of the beerz that have been going past my lips.    I did get my hands on some Undercover Investigation and am hoarding it.  Same with the Founders KBS, I only got a couple and I'm saving them for laters.  A picture of the California common is not here, I'll post it here later.

Wee heavy seems like a drink for colder weather, but it is way good. I may be adjusting to these darker offerings



Wow, it this a delicious beer but it too seems set for a colder day then these last few.

Do you possibly have any pictures of your adventure ?

the last of my stash of the Undercover Shutdown (guess i will have to wait until next year unless anyone knows of any still on the shelves here in the ATL).
IIRC, pretty convenient to you, Perimeter Total Wine has several sixers on the shelf.

I'm not much of a photographer, but here's a link to the few pics I took, mostly uncreative, blurry shots of glasses of beer.  You asked!

Well I liked 'em, good memory stirrers.  Thanks

I could have been mistaken.  Might have been Censored instead.

Dogfish Head Theobroma, not much head, cocoa comes thru with the coconut, ancho way in the back, nice finish, good precursor to the Chocolate Oak Aged Yeti from the Great Divide, a stout with prevelant cocoa and coconut that will go well with my home made grilled burgers. But that is for another thread.

Had a glass of the Heavy Seas Dubbel at Steinbeck's the other night.  I really like the selection there, not a huge list but well-chosen.  The Dubbel was not too heavy for a summer night, well-balanced.

For the NASCAR at the Pocano's today I will be launching into the Wiconsin Belgian Red from New Glarus, a Founders Cerise and to the Ballast Point Sculpin IPA. Last night was the Jai Alai from Cigar City and I also was into the Big Bang Brew from Toasted and Tapped on Friday at Fraziers Harley Davidson (a special event)!
