    Just tried a new one.... to me, anyway. Widmer Bros. Winter Style. Very good stuff.

    Hibernation Ale from Great Divide. Wishing I could find the oak aged Hibernation but doesn't appear to be close to Cincinnati. Also tried the Big Eddy Russian Imperial last night. Not normally a Leiney fan but I really enjoyed it.

    The GD Hibernation is one of my all time favorite beers. It is a seasonal and usually available November-February. Great divide does oak aging in a giant oak tank and they also age beers in Stranahan's whiskey barrels on occasion. I don't think they have done a regular oak aged Hibernation but there have been 2 releases of the barrel aged done in the past with the most recent being 2009. There are barrels of Hibernation aging as we speak and I've heard it might be ready for bottling in March or April 2012. In 2009 there were only 492 bottles and I don't they were distributed out of Denver. This batch is a good bit larger, but will still be tough to find out of Denver. They bottled the barrel aged yeti about a month and a half ago. I was told that only a handful of cases were sent out to the distributors as thank yous for supporting the product. Not sure if any of those made it to out of state shelves or not. If you can find it, the barrel aged Hibernation is exceptional though and definitely worth some level of effort.

    Enjoyed my first taste of The Vixen from Sam Adams last night, part of a new line of bombers they're doing. Nice subdued chocolate and chili thing going on. Not overpowering, but a nice warm 8.5 percent bock.

    I had one of these the other day as well and thought it was pretty good. Not as overly hoppy as some IPAs can get, but still enough to remind me that it is an IPA. It was a good change from the lagers that I had been drinking.

    I love me some St. Lamvinus. I picked up a classic gueuze at Belmont not long ago, but haven't seen anything else in the state (or anywhere else for that matter) in awhile.

    I popped a Rose at a tasting a week or so ago and absolutely loved it - barnyard, mud, cherry - just a great mix of complex aromas and flavors. I've picked up about 6 bottle of 3F gueuze in the last few months as well, but haven't tried the two side-by-side ever. I'm hoping the 3F does well in the comparison since it's much easier to get.

    Ah, Belmont, Dayton's diamond in the rough, best beer selection in town.
