A friend got some in a trade and gave me a 6er.

My lady was in Chicago last weekend and couldn't find any 3 Floyds to save her life.

Cool. Same here. I'll land some eventually.

Started the day with a homemade Belgiam Triple Ale that floydtp made. Pretty tasted and pretty close to on profile. Good first effort.

Now I'm finishing up a Schlafly Oktoberfest that seems tired on over the hill. Moving onto ???? shortly...

That beer is delicious, VT. Hope some is available this summer - I'll be drinking a lot of it if so.

I had Bourbon County Coffee stout yesterday, 14+% ABV and one of the more incredible beers I have ever had. Aged in bourbon barrels and coffee added. I could smell it from a few feet away after pouring it.

Sierra Nevada Ruthless Rye: This is an IPA brewed with Rye. Really nice with more of savory (pepper) than sweet (floral, citrus) aromas and flavors. Well worth seeking out.

Good one! If you like Imperial/Double IPA give the Racer 15 a try if you can find it.

I just popped open a North Coast Old Rasputin XV Anniversary. It's a huge stout and I'll be sipping on this for the next hour at least Smile

Tonight with dinner:

* Esser's Best Original (on tap)
* New Glarus Spotted Cow (bottle)

I really liked the Esser but after a few glasses the profile wore a little thin. I think I actually preferred it to the Spotted Cow (although the Spotted Cow was pretty good in it's own right).

New Glarus Spotted Cow is one of my favorite beers period. The problem is that I do not get up to Wisconsin very much.

Circle Amber - local micro I'd never tried before. Nice hops but not as heavily hoppy as an IPA, of which I'm not typically a big fan. A little darker than most ambers as well. Good stuff!

~8 different beers from Chicago's new Pipeworks Brewing with Chinese New Year dinner last night at Sun Wah.

Galaxy Unicorn IPA a standout, among others- all very good.

These beers are now widely availabe in the Chicago market and worth a look if you're into the craft beer scene.

Ale Industries Unity Wild Ale - Awesome, brewed with peaches, sour and clean. Probably just a one off but man I would love these in 6 packs or 750 mls.
