    had an EPIC score on the beer front today.

    Received two Prairie BOMB!, Evil Twin Molotov Cocktail,18th St Bitch B Crazy, 18th Street Undercrown, Mikkeller Mosaic, Mikkeller Monk's Brew, Evil Twin Freudian Slip and 18th Stree BA Hunter.

    Also found a 2013 KBS in my cellar that I forgot I had. #Winning

    Nice. We're hosting a friend's 40th birthday party and I was (naturally) put in charge of the beer. Big Red gave me a pretty decent discount on 2 cases of Lagunitas Maximas, 2 cases of Oberon, a case of Bud Lite and a case of Miller Lite. I'll probably add a couple 4 packs of Headhunter IPA and hide them for the cool guys.

    Ever had anything from Maine Beer Co? I finally found their Lunch ipa the other day and have high expectations since they make some really great stuff (although a touch overpriced)

    I've heard of it but haven't tasted any yet. They are very highly touted and rated on untapped and beer advocate.

    Nice.

    Prairie Bomb is a big beer - one of those is good for two peeps.

    You wearing your beer group t-shirt?

    I keed, I keed....

    I did find out about the BOMB release through my share group. I did happen to see two other folks from the group at the store. I did not however wear my shirt. I left straight from work.

    So you're starting to see some 18th St hitting the shelves there?

    The Mikkeller Mosaic sounds good. I'm a fan of single hop ales.

    One store in town "gets it". They got 2 cases of the 18th and 1 case of the BOMB. It it funny to watch the guy in front of me bypass the BA Hunter for an Oberon and then the guy after me had a 30 rack of Busch Light.

    Prarie Bomb! Is the shit, my favorite stout. The chilis provide just enough heat to counter the sweetness of the cocoa. Awesome.

    Having a Dark Horse Smells Like a Safety Meeting, really good, like it better than crooked Tree.

    That's saying something. Crooked Tree is pretty damn good. The DIPA is pretty damn gooder.

    Just wait until you try Surly Todd The Axe Man. You'll make a beer group tuxedo.

    Do your research, beer ninja.

    TMP replying to a beer thread = Outside shitter replying to all the pats football/tom brady posts.

    We get it man. Your point is valid and taken. So why continue to beat a dead horse?

    Your answer of "to educate us about it being a boring buzz that is lame and boring" is also beating a dead donkey...

    Never had Bomb! but I'm sure I'd love it. Perrenial Abraxas and Stone Xocoveza are tremendous Mexican/mole inspired stouts.

    I had Boulevard's bourbon barrel aged imperial stout tonight. Split a bomber. It's very nice for the style, if a tad thinner and sweeter than I prefer. It's a very good, accessible barrel aged stout that doesn't get hype that's worth checking out. I prefer the straight coffee minus the barrel aging though.

    I had Victory's Kirsch Gose. It was like drinking sour cherry lemonade which, after mowing the lawn after a cardio workout and lifting weights, was pretty flocking good.

    I'm picking up Stone Ruination 2.0 (thanks to your recommendation) and Stone Pale Ale 2.0 tomorrow, along with a 12-pack of Grapefruit Sculpin (6 bottles, 6 cans to determine if there's a difference). Seriously, I need to build another garage to hold another beer fridge.

    The Victory Gose was decent. It's a good summer beer, I agree, and a good change of pace for my usual hoppy pales and IPAs but I'm not sure I'll get another 4 pack. The Anderson Valley Blood Orange Gose is ok, the same price, and comes in 6 packs of cans. For that style it's the way to go I think, though I'll try almost anything from Victory. They just need to can Headwaters and Prima Pils.

    I picked up a 12 pack of cans of Ale Asylum's Hopalicious today. It's solid, if not great, as a cascade single hopped pale ale. It's no ZD, but that canned format and price are great. Ale Asylum is not spectacular but I haven't had anything bad from them. I'm a fan.

    It will happen. Need a window of time so I can pack it up, along with Toppling Goliath Light Speed, and send it your way.

    I like Hopalicious a lot. Ale Asylum is solid.

    I'm trying to figure out how to secure Pliny The Younger. Looks like I'm gonna have to head to Cali, to accomplish that.

    If I came across The Younger I'd be ecstatic but there is no way I'd fight the lines at RR for it. I'd love to try it but there is so much great stuff out there as you always say, it's a great time to be a beer nerd.

    A beer bar here got a keg of Younger but put "Miller High Life - $5.50" on the board. The keg lasted a week.

    Yeah, I'm not sure I wanna be that guy, but that's the whale I'm chasing. I've gotta think on this some more.

    BTW, I won't purchase any more of the Kirsch Gose, either. It was good, but not that good. I'm really looking forward to the Ruination 2.0 - I love Ruination, and 2.0 sounds significantly "upgraded."

    Phish is getting my last bottle. I have a 2013 Dark Lord I'm sitting on, but I really appreciate the offer. Maybe we can work a trade when Surly starts canning Todd The Axe Man - it's Abrasive-level spectabulous.
