Hill Farmstead Abner is on tap on Hoptron right now. After two glasses I can officially say the hype is real. Can't wait to go back for more tomorrow.
Just a personal log on what I've had lately:
- Left Hand Wake Up Dead Nitro -- Liked it for my first Russian Imp Stout
- Ten Fidy -- Ehh, preferred the Left Hand
- Dragon's Milk Bourbon Barrel Stout -- Hated this
- Terrapin Wake n Bake -- Now one of my favorites
- Schlafly Pumpkin Ale -- Great, really liked this
- Southern Tier Warlock Stout -- Awesome
- Lagunitas Imperial Stout -- Loved this as well, difficult to find
I got to thinking about this post because I have some stuff sitting as well and I'm not too sure why. I am the only one that really is into craft beer in my family/friends circle. My sister and her BF enjoy it but not to my level which my level is still low compared to some of you all. With that said, I waited in line last year and got one of each of the BCBS and I believe the total about $120 as well. Not too sure I am going to do that again this year especially with it being a even more "rare" release. And I actually found a couple extra random 4 packs of the regular BC after the release. I have 2 12oz BCS & my Coconut left and I've been putting that coconut one off because I'm scared how good it's going to be (and at times forgetting about it)
My joint got in a couple cases of the Backwoods about a week ago and I ran up and got my two "per person". Stopped in a few days ago and they got quite a bit more in and now it's sitting out for the taking. Debating on getting more to hold on too. It's so good.
So I called the closest Binny's to me and asked if they had XOCO in and they said yeah. I asked how much because it's about a 40 min drive without traffic and they said a "healthy amount". I took a ride up there with my sister and they only got two cases and it was behind the counter and it was one per person. He gave me one and then I told my sister to snag one. Never had this before but I'm looking forward to it something fierce!
Also, anyone try that Watermelon Gose?! That sounds fantastic so I snagged one of them too. (I read a good review about that 24 carrot so I figured what the hell!)
What's funny is that Watermelon Gose was at the very end of an isle just sitting on the floor with the flaps open with other **** piled around it. You literally have to open the box to see what was even in it. If you weren't paying attention you'd think it was just garbage. If it's good, which I assume it, I'm gonna run back up and snag a couple more if it's still there. I think there was only 3-4 missing from the 12.
