Cracked a Hop Notch yesterday, very tasty! Can't go wrong with a Wake N Bake either, I think I have 2 left. Also tried out a couple of Left Hand Milk Stout Nitro's. You should try one or six!
From good authority, if you are waiting for the Depth Charge to come back, it isn't going to happen any time soon. But if you know somebody that has some stashed......

Have you ever listened to someone for a while and wondered, who ties your shoelaces?

You can't do epic shit with basic people.

Beer is why I get up every afternoon.

No. 11 on ratebeer.com's list of "best beers in the world" (2012)?

Hmmmmm, I second the Marshall being a great beer. Seasonal from CCB in Ga? Not much to choose from in Ga so you better stick to the Road Trip to Fl.  And while you are there check on that brewery whose complete  name escapes me, but it has something to do with Buddha. I think they are called Laughing Buddha. They have some great things going on!

I've had all but a few of the top 20 beers and I would put it easily beyond any of them except FW Parabola.  Even if you expect greatness it's shockingly good.

I had some awesome Lost Abbey Deliverance on tap at BSP tonight.  It's a blend of bourbon barrel Serpents Stout and brandy barrel Angel's Share.  I got home and opened some Fantome Pissenlit.  Fantome is generally just about my favorite brewery, but this beer seemed to be in the middle of a pediococcus "sickness", so it was a disgustingly thick and gummy.  It still tasted great so I blended it with a very dry homebrew saison to avoid dumping the bottle.

By the way, if you or others reading this haven't sampled what is yet again rated as the "No. 1 beer in the world," Westvleteren 12, the rumor I saw is that a total of 70,000 cases are slated to be exported to several countries including the US this year --the first time it's been exported with the blessing of the brewery.  So it may be possible to buy one without making a trip to Flanders.

I have no idea what Fantome offers other than the saison that they've long been associated with.  A bit of a mouth puckerer, I've always felt, even speaking as one who likes saisons.

I'm hoping to get some Westy when it's here, but I'll be at the brewery in 2 months so I'm not that worried about it.  It's coming through Shelton Brothers, which isn't always good about getting sought after stuff down south.  Fantome has quite a few beers that all have that distinctive musty tartness but with assorted flavorings.  The standard Sur Lie has some fruit (most people guess apricot and strawberry) and secret spices.  Pissenlit has dandelion flowers.  It's the brewery I'm most looking forward to visiting.  We have a lot tentatively planned, but what do you recommend as essential?  I meant to return your email but hadn't given any thought yet as to what we were doing at that point.

I cracked opened a growler of Red Hare's Watership Brown.  I'm typically not a big brown ale fan but I like this one, maybe because its hoppier than most borwn ale's.  It paired well with a thick apple wood smoked pork chop with a side of baby artichokes and red potatoes.  Lori found a recipe for this and ran with it.  The baby artichokes and red potatoes were awesome.  Did I mention there was lots of garlic? This capped an excellent Monday (comp day) for me.

Clown Shoes Tramp stamp....   Nice IPA, good for a bit of a different taste then my go-to's ....

I would buy it again, and would buy it for sure on draught.

see what RateBeers says:

Another Clown Shoes Beer from Ipswich Ale Brewery in Mass. 

I can't wait to try their "Vampire Slayer" Imperial Stout.

This one is "Supa Hero", a little bit too piney tasting for me, but honestly a good refreshing beer.  I'll try some of the other Clown shoes beerz, they are all rated highly.

Hoppy Feet 1.5 is pretty good also.

Popped open a 420, I think it is the right drink for tonight.
