    A Fullers Vintage 2005 is gonna get toasted to tonight. They are an interesting beer. I usually by a couple of the same vintage at a time. Drink one right away and then store the other in the cellar to be consumed at a later time. It is interesting to note the changes that happen.

    And I have a hobgoblin as backup. I had one of the Fullers go weird (only once) and couldn't drink it. Gotta have plan B.

    Real beer (read- not that corn and rice crap that tastes like watered down urine) can be too young or too old. Heavy ass beers are like wine- they age well, then start losing it after a time. Lighter beers need less time.

    If you go to brew pubs, you will sometimes get a beer that needs another month before it should be served- the change is very dramatic. Home brewers should brew more often than they drink- some never let their beer get good before they drink it all. Brewing more means that some will age.

    I have a Bigfoot from 1999. It's lost a step, but is still good. I should finish that up.

    Wife brought this horrible stuff back from Baldwinsville Wild Blue (AB). won't be drinking it, one taste was enough. Told her the next time Edmond Fitzgerald from great lakes.
    Did have the 2012 Troggs mad elf. friday, one of those sipping beers.
    On the topic of keeping beers, Dogfish world wide stout is one that gets better with age.

    Gonna get my hands on great lakes beers. I looked at their website and they have some exciting beers on tap, available nowhere else.

    I was overserved earlier this weekend so no beer tonight but we did bottle five gallons of irish red ale yesterday. Relatively low ABV. In a couple of weeks I'll see how it is.

    Tonight's adult beverage is Highland Park. In terms of beer, my everyday is Lionshead. My favorite beers include the stouts and hoppier ales from the likes of Troegs and Dogfish Head. Troegs is very close to me and puts out some fantastic scratch brews. Most recently, their Fresh Hop Ale was amazing.

    Oh - that Fullers was a neat one. Carmel(ish) and very complex. Almost like admiring a nice scotch.

    Boom Stick, Great Lakes may not be that far from you. If you have a Wegmans near you they usually have that beer. Think I'll break out a SA wee heavy tonight.

    You can't claim that you "drank all day" unless you start in the morning.

    I have 18 snowy day beers if my basement fridge. They are hoppy and awesome. I really like them and they are not what I expected them to be. My bro is coming up in february for a steelhead trip so I'll have to ask him to bring me some more from NC.

    Did you hear that what some call the best beer in the world is available for the first and probably last time in the US today? the monks need a new roof. At $85- I'd buy it if I could get to one of the limited places its being sold before it's gone.

    No beer is worth 85 bucks for a six pack. it is a 1 time release so who even knows what it tastes like?
