    Bell's Hopslam, which apparently survived the Tuesday contest (and it really is no contest; I am very disappointed with the current version of New Albanian's Hoptimus), followed by New Albanian's Bonfire of the Valkyries.

    Guess where I am, Timothy.

    Tonight I hope to make it to Flanagan's in Louisville for the C1 event, but we'll see how it goes.

    Highly recommended! Fairly rich, but not really heavy. We've had another blast of cold after several very mild weeks. Maybe I'm not drinking enough of it...

    Welcoming the Weekend with a Bell's Hopslam, followed by a Fat Tire. Talk about two very different beers. Not sure I drank them in the right order, but I enjoyed them both. The Hopslam is really wonderful.

    I enjoyed the Hopslam a lot. It may require developing a tolerance for, I mean an appreciation of heavily hopped beers. It was surprisingly smooth and drinkable considering the hop impact and the high alcohol. I got a lot of grapefruit.

    Nugget Nectar from Troeg's. It's been a while since I had this one. MIGHTY TASTY!! Kind of like a DFH 90 minute, with all the hop flavor, without the sweetness.

    I'm welcoming 5:00 with an Atlanta Brewing Company's Red Brick 15th Anniversary Ale. This Special Release is their regular Brown Ale that has been aged 13 months in Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels. Mighty delicious. Very creamy, but not syrupy, and nicely carbonated. A subtle sweetness that I think is a result of the PVW barrel interaction. Very, very nice. I don't drink a lot of the Atlanta Brewing's beers, as I gravitate more towards Sweetwater as my home town fave. But, I'll definitely be exploring their regular offerings more, after this.

    One of my highlights of the year is the release of the new SN celebration ale at our government store. That was February 1, but I did not have the beer until today. Very heavy and good as usual and a terrific food beer totally different from SNs other normal strength IPA torpedo. I did also have one of my favourite Swedish normal strength porters that also were a new release. idjit from Dugges in Gothenburg that has a very special liquorish house stile on there dark beers.
