    ^ Is Fullers an English brewery? I see it says brewed next to the Thames. Looks good...nice color!

     
    . Yes. It's been around for over a 150 years and is still family owned. They make an annual strong ale with what they consider to the best ingredients of the year. It's supposed to age very well but it never lasts long enough in my house. It's rich and malty, and quit boozy for an ale at 8.5
    Very cool. 150 years is quite a history. Great they’ve kept it on the family. And I can relate to having difficulty letting beers age. They don’t last long enough in my house either.

    ^Greenbush weekends are the best weekends. Where you at, man? I think you have also posted stuff about Four Fathers in Valpo before. Seems we may be kind of close to each other.

    ^That is one boring ass drive to get to Four Fathers. You ever go up to any other breweries near Valpo or even up in Sourh Bend/Mishawaka/Elkhart?

    No, what are the ones worth visiting?
    My sister lives in chicago, and four fathers marks the perfect halfway stopping point.

    Yes, it is a great stopping point. Not sure there is anything really worth going to SB/Mish/Elkhart. The only one I really enjoyed was Ichyd Da in Elkhart.

    Surely you stopped at 3 Floyd's in Munster? Have you tried 18th St. Brewery in Gary or Hammond? One Trick Pony in Lansing, IL is a good IPA spot I think.

    Anyone try Hop Drop and Roll from NoDa in Charlotte? Tried it last night. Pretty good stuff.

    New Jersey. About ten minutes from the beach.   (Belmar, asbury park, point pleasant)

    lol.

    In Barbados we drank the local beer there named Banks.  You get used to drinking a certain amount from a bottle and you would go to take another swig and there was none left?!?  Bottle was heavier and there was less beer in the bottle.  I think it was almost 11 oz in the bottle?  I forget.

    Anyone had the 61 Minute from Dog Fish? Thinking of that for my next keg. Looks like the 60 brewed with grapes and stuff. I like their other beer/wine blends.

    ^ Good stuff Mike. Anti Hero is a staple. I’ve been picking up a bunch of stouts. Next week will be the mother load (Goose Island and Revolution). Working on this one tonight. Not bad. Nice chocolate flavor.

    It’s all about Friday now...

  • bbiggsbbiggs Posts: 2,553
    ^ Yes sir!! Let me know what you think. I’ll be picking up my full allotment of the 2018 lineup on Friday as well. I’m really looking forward to the vanilla, reserve, prop and coffee barleywine.

    Very excited for the vanilla and reserve.  Looking forward to the bramble rye as well.  I've heard that the prop is just straight up chocolate.  It's a great time of year!

    I went down to Revolution yesterday to get some of the deth's tar/cafe deth....tried a bunch of the variants too.  Some really good stuff.

    ^ How is this year’s Deths Tar and Cafe Deth? I didn’t make it to the brewery and my local store won’t have it in until later this week.
