    Dublin Bay has this on tap right now. Delicious!

    I've got a bottle of SR-71 from Toppling Goliath that I'll be ringing in the new year with. Can't wait!

    My plain 2015 Bourbon County was excellent. Also had a 2014 last weekend that was great.

    Good to hear, I know it wouldn't be hard to check the dates on mine and look online to see, but can't bring myself to.

    I've had 3 month old Sosus taste good if it's been cold the whole time.

    Awesome, if I had to guess, I'd day its about there in age (if I remember right, you could probably tell me when the last distribution was).

    It's been bottled in the last 2 months I wanna say. I still have one bottle from the last bottling. I drank one last week that was decent. Sosus has been a little up and down from batch to batch and with different ages this year. Some are killer, some batches the first bottle seems disappointing but a week later the next bottle is awesome.

    If it's the last run it should be in good shape yet.

    OH HOW I LOVE HYVEE!!!

    Decided to go into my favorite hy-vee over lunch to get a few more bottles and one of the employees walks over to me with 2 bombers and says "Would you like the last two of these we have?".........KING SUE!!!!

    Agree. Actually I've never had a bad IPA from them.

    Passe'
    Hopititis (both)
    Mediocre
    Blase
    Bogan
    Western Gateway


    Cooter Ray IPA was probably my least favorite

    Boone Valley Brewery released their 2016 Ol Griz barleywine a couple of weeks ago. Definitely going to open a bottle Saturday night. The Tallgrass Vanilla Bean Buffalo Sweat sounds great, also.

    Costco has cases of Psuedo Sue for $44, which is a lot cheaper than any local stores. Of course it's the Florida stuff but still a good deal.

    Keg Stand had $5 growler fills tonight on everything. I picked up some 2015 Pentagram. Awesome way to get customers.

    Enjoying some Prairie-Vouz Fran├žais right now in lieu of champagne. Otherwise, I'll stick with the stout keg I took from work.

    Made a run to Alluvial earlier and picked up a growler of Pluvial Porter with coconut to add to the mix. Very good!
