No I haven't. I've got sooo much ground to cover it's amazing. I used to think I knew about beer, what with my liking of Newcastle and all. But now I realize that I'm still very inexperienced. The good thing is I have a whole lot of drinking to do! Wooohooo!

Visited a buddy in Carlsbad on Saturday. Headed to Green Flash and then Port Brewing/Lost Abbey for a couple flights.
Then headed back to his house to do a little more damage. Here is a picture of some of the bottles we tapped. Keep in mind there was 6 of us...so the damage isn't THAT BAD. I left out a couple bottles in this picture (Abyss and couple others).
I HIGHLY suggest the Abt 12. Good Lord that's a delicious brew. I give it a 9.5.

Yeah, it's like the more you try the less you're sure about anything. It reminds me of my cigar smoking, when people ask me what is my favorite I can't really answer because I've been trying so many new cigars (or beers) recently that I don't really have a favorite anymore!

If you have a female significant other that's not a beer fan, serve her this without showing her the bottle. She'll drink it down in no time. Then you can rag on her for liking beer after all!

Went to a beer and cheese tasting event at Whole Foods in Tustin last weekend and the beer flights were Stone. Plus they had for sale - 2007 Russian Imperial Stout. Amazing. I bought nearly all they had. They were also selling 2007 & 2008 Barley Wines. Whole Foods has an overall amazing beer selection. They are located in the District in Tustin.

Drinking Lagunitas Undercover Shutdown Investigation ale. Love the HOPS. Just as good as last years batch.
