    Greetings from Chicago

    Gentlemen,
    It's a pleasure to be here with you. I've been reading your posts all year, and finally got an account activated. I started drinking bourbon about 10 years ago, but got sidetracked on microbrews. I blame it on my lack of knowledge at the time - I was buying Jim Beam white label.

    Anyway, thanks to my friend Binny, I've been on a tear this year and have gone through at least 15-20 different brands. Started on the middle shelf, and thanks to the hole in my wallet with the BTAC and Pappy, I've been exploring the bottom shelf options lately. I love them all. Some of my favorites this year were Rock Hill Farms, Pappy 15, and Four Roses Single Barrel (only had the OBSF so far).

    Thanks for your posts this year, I’ve learned a lot from you. I hope to be an active member and hopefully inspire fellow new enthusiasts.

    Cheers,
    Steve

    A belated welcome Steve! I'm mad jealous of your proximity to Binny's, one of my favorite places on earth. Love the avatar too, btw.

    Steve, Wecome aboard. Always good to have another SB-er in the area.
    I just hope it not the same burbs as I because you might take all the good bottles from my binny's.
