Found it at Decatur Wine and Spirits on Claremont near North Decatur.

They also had the Sam Adams Longshot winners, which contained a mix of home brews that won the annual contest they put on.  I was tempted to pick this up.  Has anyone tried?

Mike, you probably would like the Burton Baton.  I remember liking it more last year when it seemed like a pretty even blend between DFH 90 and an old English brown.  I swear that it seems like this year there's a much higher percentage of the 90, which is of course a very nice IPA, but I don't get that into most IPAs.

I had a great sour and a pretty lackluster one last night, both from Petrus.  The Aged Pale was actually one of my favorite sour beers I've had (I've had a lot) and at $3.95 (11.2 oz bottle) from Green's was probably the cheapest good one.  Light and crisp and bracingly sour and funky.  The Petrus Oud Bruin (1.95) wasn't nearly as good, not unpleasant but a little bland.

tail end of the season (judging by the label descriptor of "Winter Warmer"), but picked up a 6 of Tommyknocker Cocoa Porter that is a little lighter than my usual stout obsession, but very refreshing and tasty.

I often remind myself how delicious I think Loose Cannon beer is.  There have been contenders but it is still at the top of my go-to beers.

Wow!    Stone Sublimely Self Righteous Ale....

Now that is a good beer...   I bet it will be even better when it warms up a little?

Good malt, pretty and tall tan head that stayed up for a while.  Almost looks black in the glass but tastes somewhat like an arrogant bastard..   More malt, a bit of different hops I'm guessing.. but a damn good pour..

I'll save the other half of the bottle for after dinner, this is a good, and filling beer..  Another winner from Stone IMHO...

added later: And this big bottle is a good price..  at Niko's less than $6.50... Nice....

Over at Young Augistine's - having a WTF and some carnitas and kimchee tacos. Can't get much better...until they get the cask tap fixed. Hop Devil awaits.

Stone SSR is awesome.  I was at BSP and they had a good selection of sour beers on tap.  Allagash Confluence is an interesting piney hop wild ale.  It's not on the menu so you have to ask for it.  Also had a Rodenbach grand cru, a hard to resist flemish sour.

Don't know if it is still there, but last week Leon's had SSR on tap.  I agree it's really good.

I have yet to meet a Stone I haven't liked.

Doesn't get good reviews online, though the guy at SWoB seemed to think it was okay.  I shall see how it works with dinner.

I had the Lagunitas Cappuccino Stout at (the dearly departed) 5th Earl, as I recall it was really good.  (However, in the interest of full disclosure there are few coffee or chocolate stouts that I HAVEN'T liked.)

Very few I dislike either... but this once seemed a little flat (from a taste standpoint) with a little coffee flavor but not much else.  I do, however, assume it tastes totally different on tap.

I am not fond of the oaked versions of these beerz...     just sayin...
