    I drank a bottle of that when I saw Flylo/ Animal Collective @ the Hollywood Bowl. I really enjoyed the taste, but definitely had to take small sips. I had a nice buzz going when I was done with it.

    Had a Ballast Point Brewing Co. Sea Monster Imperial Stout last night. It was pretty damn good, but I've had better Imperial Stouts. But considering it's cheap price I'll be coming back for more.

    Am I the only person that finds dogfish head 60 90 120 IPAs way overrated?

    Picked up the last New Belgium Lips Of Faith series for the year, Imperial Coffee Chocolate Stout and Biere de Garde. Also picked up some narwhal and upslope Christmas ale. All delicious.

    No food with the beer tonight, i'm just about to crack one open now. Going for the Black Butte Anniversary.

    I think Dogfishhead 60-minute and 90-minute are very good, but I don't get the hype about 120-minute.

    I love the Lipe of Faith stuff. the Bier De Garde is very good. I really need to try that coffee chocolate stout though.

    It's crazy. Here in Colorado the 120 goes for $11+ for 8 oz.

    Just want to brag about Colorado's beer scene for a sec. It has been fantastic this year. So many amazing firkins this year. From pumpkin porters, grapefruit ipas, peanut butter chocolate stouts and so many more!!! I have 25 breweries in a 30 mile radius from my house. I don't even buy much bottled or canned beer any more. All growlers. I love it in Denver right now.

    I got a decent deal at work today for a 4 pack of Duvel that came with a nice glass. Only $14. Also got a rather large bottle of Piraat as a write off. Work is fun. Sometimes.

    Planning a weekend trip when there is a decent show is totally worth it. Cab rides from brewery to brewery even it was just 7 breweries each day wouldn't be more than 35$ for the entire day since they are so close to each other. I think there is some guy that does tours/barcrawls on a bus for pretty cheap too.

    It's definitely worth trying. It's just too boozy for to even be considered an IPA for my taste.

    Actually the ABV varies per batch, I've heard that they only tell you the ABV if it's a keg...

    I was back east for the last week and tried a bunch of new (to me) beers there. White Rajah IPA is the only one I'd go out of my way for again. It's very nice.

    Oh, mrs gazercmh got me a keg of Speedway Stout for my birthday a couple weeks ago. It's so nice to be able to drink that beer without committing to opening a 750ml bottle.

    I was at a party a couple weeks ago and someone opened a 1995 Cantillon Rose de Gambrinus. It was outstanding! People who say the fruit flavor drops off in those beers are wrong, as the raspberry was still strong. I'm going to try to resist opening some of my bottles for a long time so I can age them similarly.

    They can call 120 min an IPA if they want, but it tastes like a barley wine to me.

    You should visit City Beer while you're there. They just expanded their store to include a tasting room. Good people run the show there. Craig and Beth are awesome.

    Sounds like a great time.I have yet to gone to any type of Barrel Aged Beer exclusive event.I love going to a specific type of beer festivals though.It is kinda like going to a Iron Chief exhibition for beer drinkers.What is the name of the event?

    Went to AleSmith today for their Barrel Aged Speedway release. They had BA Speedway on draft and on cask, plus Speedway with nutella, a mocha Speedway, Speedway on nitro, Speedway with Italian coffee and Speedway with Vietnamese coffee. And regular Speedway, of course. A friend brought a bottle of 2004 Speedway, and it was delicious. Went home with eight bottles of BA Speedway and a smile on my face ...

    I went to a beer tasting/pairing tonight at a local bar and found out that mid December they are going to do a Stone Vertical Epic tasting going from 2004 to 2012. Jesus I am so excited.
