Ah okay. Well expect kegs at your local bars this month based on what I'm hearing.


If you guys like Belgian-style beers, then hopefully Pere Jacques will be one of the GI beers heading that way on tap. It's phenomenal.


I'm sipping one right now. Excellent stuff.


Sheer greatness!


We get in the 22 ounce bottles here, and the 9% alcohol sneaks up on you though.

D is attending a wedding expo on Sunday, so Dan and I are planning a beer day, perhaps in Chicago. Cool

Trois pistoles, dark ale on lees. Sparkling wine like cork for closure.

The beers of Deschutes from OR have recently become available here in IL, to a lot of hype. I got to try 4 of them on tap today at a local pub. I can't recall the exact names but I really enjoyed the white IPA and porter.

I picked up Deschutes Red Chair Northwest Style Pale Ale at Binny's recently and really enjoyed it. A lot of good buzz around this stuff. All six packs are $8.99 at Binny's during January as they push this beer into our market. You can also mix your own 6 pack.

I had my first Hopslam this weekend. I liked it, but don't think I'll be buying more at the price.

You guys will be happy with anything Deschutes makes. One of my go-to producers.

I'm pushing for us to get grub and drinks at Goose Island on Clybourn this coming Saturday before we head to the Flogging Molly show at the Aragon. If someone else is driving, I'll plan to get at least one of their Belgian-styles on tap.

Goose Island Sofie.

I prefer the Pere Jacques, then Matilda more than Sofie. They are all excellent though.

Dude, ain't that the truth! You and I both know that anything even close to, "...Honey, are you sure that's reduced enough?..." would result in instant death.

Recently: Port Brewing Wipeout IPA (from 22 oz bottle) - very good, would love to try on draught.


Cheers!

I was just thinking about that myself. Our flight was supposed to leave early tomorrow morning...

We'll try again next year.

Yesterday at lunch. All on tap:

* Deep Ellum Darkest Hour (pretty good, finish a bit weak for such a big beer)
* Left Hand Fade To Black Vol. 4 (nice black ale with just enough IBU not to overpower)
* St. Feullien Triple (A bit lightweight, lemons dominate)
