Yeah, oak-aged yeti is fantastic... so drinkable.

I just finished a New Glarus Imperial Weizen. It's nothing like any other hefe... but it's one hell of a beer.

Clipper City Loose Cannon Hop3 Ale, bottle courtesy of Jan Primus (can't thank you enough man). This stuff is just great. So well balanced, I think it's my favourite IPA I've had.

This afternoon I've got some interesting stuff;

Lost Coast 8 ball stout
Paddock Wood 606 IPA (Saskatoon)
Elysian Perseus Porter
I don't always piss in a bottle but when I do...I prefer to call it Dos Equis.

Both very drinkable on a hot summer day, but the Black Irish is by far the superior beer.


I had one of my remaining Blacks VS a Harviestoun, and I very much agree on the quality of Black Irish.

Brador. I just wanted to see if it tastes like I remember in the 70's.

It does (exactly).

Not drinking it right now, but a 2 year old bottle of Victory Storm King has tonight written all over it. :D

The porter is a classic. I had it at the elysian fields in seattle. Good times.

I've horribly burned my hand on a 400F pan handle, so I'm hitting high abv beers to numb the pain. Hopefully works better than these icecubes and burn cream. Unearthly, roche 8, abt 12.

God, it hurts.

Love the 8 Ball. Nice and roasty, yet surprisingly hoppy I found.

Going through a Tripel Karmeliet right now. Wow, it's complex. Yeast, bananna and citrus in the aroma. Bananna, a mix of other misc. over ripe fruits, tons of spice and a good alcohol bite. Yum.

I was just going buy what Ratebeer has those two beers under. They are both listed as Alesmith Yulesmith, and one is summer, and one is winter. Sorry for the faux pas.

Gotta say I'm jealous of the brews many of you guys have available!
I've been drinking some Anchor Liberty today, followed by my last Orange Peel Ale and a Rogue Brutal Bitter, and some ST IPA's.

Hoping to hit Gatineau / QC next weekend before/during/after a camping roadtrip up to Kirland Lake to pick up some DDC and others.
