I'm enjoying a Great Lakes Christmas Ale. I had a very tough day. A bi-annual inspection that was he toughest I've ever had in 40+ years in the business. I passed but I also earned my keep!
Some more Lag Brown Shugga',which has been my go to lately.Lagunitas definitely has a discernible house style much like many of the HH products share common characteristics,what ever they are doing.......I LIKE IT!I enjoy a great many of their products.I'm trying to lay back on my Bo Co stuff until the holidays roll around,because once I start in on that stuff it doesn't seem to stick around very long.:grin:
Tried the new Terrapin White Chocolate Moo-Hoo today. It was quite unremarkable and something of a disappointment to me. Compared it to a regular Moo-Hoo which was not much better. Very thin for a stout without much malt or chocolate.
Picked up a Stone Smoked Porter with Vanilla Bean and a New Belgium Lips of Faith Ale made with Chiles in collaboration with Cigar City to try later in hopes they are a bit better. A bit frustrating that we don't seem to get regular Cigar City beers in Atlanta currently.
Founders Sweet Repute, a hefty wheat wine aged in maple barrels. This is an excellent Winter beer. Hoping to find a few more of these around.
Picked up my annual case of Sam Adams Winter Favorites Variety Pack, today. Disappointed that there is no Holiday Porter in it. It's been one of my favorite selections of the yearly release. :(. Luckily the Old Fezziwig Ale is still in there, and the Cherry Chocolate Bock sure sounds scrumptious.
My store has not been deemed worthy of all the backstage releases from Founders. I love their beers but understand that this is a business first and foremost.
Same reason why I haven't been ordering founders kegs for the growler system. Business decision...
Thanks to another SB'r, I was able to enjoy some Fremont Bourbon Abominable today.
