Next Beer Thursday

So the NewBrewThursdays guys are going to be at DFH tonight, and there is no way I can make it down. They messaged me the other night and said they had to move their date, so that kinda stinks. We can still go down on the 1st and do our thing at DFH if everyone is still game

Haven't updated anything basically because there is nothing else to update. I've been searching the area for Founders Kentucky Breakfast Stout, but so far, no luck. I did find a few bottles of Supplication sitting around, but decided not to grab them as I already have some at the house.

Have a few things coming in the mail, but nothing too outrageous. I did manage to score a 2010 Kate the Great at Tj's last weekend, and a 2008 Surly Darkness in a trade, but I don't think those will get opened until maybe next St. Pats day. May have a few more Coffee Benders that everyone liked coming my way, so we should be able to enjoy that one again.

Other than that, just keep looking for good stuff.

Didn't think it could get any better? Well it did!

F'in Awesome! That was the motto of the night.
Once again, we opened 12 beers. Words just can't describe this line up, so have a look.

Iron Hill Russian Imperial Stout
2008 Founders Breakfast Stout
2007 Dogfish Head World Wide Stout
Troegs Java Head Stout
2008 AleSmith Speedway Stout
Victory Storm King Stout
Flying Fish Exit 1
2008 Rogue Imperial Stout in the Ceramic Bottle
2008 Deschutes The Abyss
2006 Three Floyds Dark Lord Imperial Stout
Dogfish Head Wrath of Pecant
Dogfish Head Theobroma

We were working up to the Dark Lord, but once we got there, there was no stopping. Almost opened a Growler, but people started running! Very successful night, and we may take the next Beer Thursday on the road...

12?!? Again!

Ok, so we decided that 8 different types of beer would be opened tonight, but that didn't work out so well. After the first six (Iron Hill RIS, 08 Founders Breakfast Stout, 07 WWS, Storm King, and two more) we still had four to go.

Last four were Flying Fish Exit 1, 2008 Rogue Imperial Stout in the ceramic bottle, 2008 Abyss, and 2006 3 Floyds Dark Lord.

Once the Dark Lord was gone, we decided to open some Dog Fish stuff that most haven't had enough of. So a bottle of Wrath of Pecant and 2008 Theobroma were opened.

Then there was something about a cow and West Side Story.

More to come tomorrow, possibly with a new logo. I kind of remember it all, but here's the picture I had on my phone. More pictures to come tomorrow...

It's Beer Thursday!

Today is Beer Thursday, and we will be opening a good amount of beer again. Same six should be here as last time, and some mighty fine brews are set to be opened. Check back later tonight for the list, and hopefully we can get some kind of reviews and pictures for the night.

Looking forward to the brews, and hope everyone brings something great!

See you tonight.

Stocking up!

Because the next Beer Thursday is the day after St. Patrick's Day, I decided that a few Stouts would be in order. I've come up with a list of five that I would be interested in trying, and wanted opinions. Let me know what you think..

08 Dark Lord
08 Abyss
07 World Wide
Breakfast Stout

Thinking we could open at least two of those on top of the other five. Problem is I only have one bottle of each of the top three.

Opinions or suggestions on any others?
