Beau's Best of 2015

I'm usually a fan of some of Beau's special releases and look forward to their mix packs, but this one was a real downer for me. Not being a fan of high alcohol or fruity beer, this eliminated 3 of the four bottles. The Mango Saison and the Screaming Beaver were poured down the drain. I choked back the stout, which was 8.8% I believe, and mildly enjoyed the regular saison.

Just didn't do it for me this time around.

That's my reaction when I think of Pere Jacques not being produced anymore.

I agree... Very disappointing. IndyBob introduced that beer to me and easily my favorite from Goose Island.
3 Floyds Gumballhead - I used to love this, but now it just seems so plain and bland
Goose Island Bourbon County Brand Coffee Stout - a lot of infected bottles seem to be out there, but mine was good. I definitely got some of the fruity flavor to go along with the coffee.
18th Street Devil's Conclave - pretty good, but a bit too much cinnamon for my liking
Had a boys' night out at various breweries and bars last night:
Half Acre Space - really enjoyed this IPA
Half Acre Chocolate Camaro (OK - would've liked more chocolate)
Pipeworks Citra - this is consistently good and not heavy for an IIPA
Green Flash Green Bullet
Maine Mo - liked this one
Maine Lunch - I can't figure this one out; I didn't care for it last night, and that's how I felt about it when I had it on draft before, but I had a bottle of it a month or two ago and really liked it
Revolution Straight Jacket - really boozy, which is what I've come to find from their barrel aged stuff
Revolution Civil Unrest
Bell's Lager of the Lakes
Deschutes The Abyss 2014 - thought this was rather unexciting, but also had a ton of beer already at that point
