    Keep an eye out for the Belgian Yeti...just started seeing bottles pop up. Had it at a festival and it was tasty.

  • Tried out a new lili bar the other night and tried several beers I've never had before:
    Great Divide: Titan IPA
    Lagunitas: Lucky 13
    Peak: Organic Pale Ale (my favorite, I think)
    Southern Tier: Unearthly IPA
    As you can see I'm a hop-head

    Will do. It hasn't made it's way down here yet.
    I wish I was as fortunate, as fortunate as me.

    Thanks for reminding me!!!! I picked up some fresh Bell's Two Hearted Ale, by far my favorite IPA. I also picked up my first Octoberfest beers of the season. They keep coming out earlier and earlier every year.

    Apparently there's a distribution shortage of Two Hearted here in Florida right now. It's one of my favorites as well. I picked up the Sam Adams Latitude 48 Deconsructed mix pack today. Looking forward to trying the different hop varieties and how they add different components to a decent IPA.

    The Deconstructed mix pack is great. Sorry about the Two Hearted shortage, I'll try not to drink so much. :lol:

    There is a local brewery that makes an awesome Pumpkin Porter. It's only available for a couple months and they only sell it at the brewery/restaurant...although you can purchase a growler of it to bring home. People will literally line the block before Thanksgiving, growlers in hand in order to get some for Thanksgiving.
    Mmmm!

    I was in Michigan this weekend and had some delicious Octoberfest from a local brewery in Sawyer. The name of the brewery is Greenbush and they're about to expand to the Chicago market. Definitely try it if you see it pop up in your area, it was incredible!

    Hoping it arrives at my local Total Wine tomorrow. The wife has been asking for it for a month now.
