The Blind Pig was drinking ridiculously bright and fresh and all that good stuff, but I'll mostly remember it as the first beer I had after getting engaged! :D

I had a Chimay 150 last night, which was downright outstanding. Still very fresh, lively and fragrant. I'm super glad I picked up a few of them.

Last night at Hungry Brew Hops

F&M Harvest Lager
F&M Harvest Ale
Stone Hammer Disco Dunkel (cask)
Stone Hammer Road to El Dorado APA (dry hopped Cask)
Stone Hammer Dark Ale (Cask)

Nice enough little feature, had a good time talking with their reps Lee and Neil. My favourite of the night was the El Dorado, but the Disco Dunkel was really well done as well.

La Chouffe Houblon Chouffe. Nice big 750ml bottle - it is 'just' one of the general (?) listed products now, but it stands out IMO as one of the LCBO's most appealing belgie ale offerings.

Very nice!

Rounding out our D.C./Philly trip at Standard Tap:
Stoudts Oktoberfest (draft)
Victory D’town Draft Gose (sample)
Sly Fox O'Reilly's Stout (draft)

Then grabbed a case of goodies at The Foodery next door. Definitely one of the best beer stores I've come across in terms of selection, and I was very impressed with the number of singles available and the fact that nearly all of the beer is fresh and refrigerated.

Good to know, I've still got a four pack in the cellar and was starting to worry about it, due to some peoples comments

They go well mixed in pancakes. We tried that with Mikkeller Beer Geek Breakfast a few years ago. Tasty!
