OK, seriously, what are they smoking when they decide to name a beer?


dunno... but w/a company name like 'Clown Shoes';sumptin' sumptin' pretty good I'd wager. Wink

It went well w/my 'Vampire Slayer' cheese I picked up in Philly.
The beer is made with holy water, so , I was really covered on Halloween. Smile

Dogfish Head 61 IPA - a 6% IPA infused with a syrah grape. It works nicely.


Just picked up a 4-pack of this for tomorrow. It sounds like a funky combo, but the "Noble Rot" was pretty good.

Right now, Rogue Dead Guy Ale.

It's a favorite of mine. What year are you drinking?


Shane, I have had several of these over the last couple of years. Do you or others feel that there is variability between years? Are there good vintages and bad? I see the year on the cap, but I personally do not get the significance of it. To me, it is a little bit like asking what year a Budweiser was made. Most people drink the beer within a couple months of buying it anyway. Would you suggest that aging the bottle will make it better? After all, why else would the vintage be important.
Thanks for your thoughts.

it is a beer that can age... so if drinking young, there is probably little variation, but it definitely shows its individual profile after some age. happy thanksgiving to your family wine doc. like the sours from russian river, they can really shine with some age on them.
