    good stuff, maynard!

    I stopped frequenting a local restaurant when they stopped serving Longhammer. every time I go back after weeks of absence, they'll ask "where have you been?!"

    I'll shrug, then say "no IPA, no show."
    I BELIEVE I'll have another beer!

    More appropriate for a "Do-Not-Recommend-A-Beer-Thread" I had a pint of Guinness 250th on tap Friday night. Booo. Tasted like watered down Guinness. Disappointing.

    Went looking for some pumpkin beer today but didn't find any. I did find a sixer of Black Butte which I've never tried before. Looking forward to getting the chance to try it.

    like Stone 9-09. Reminds me of Delirium's Nokturnum.

    Bought a 6er of Bridgeport IPA. Was at Club BevMo price for $7.29.

    One of the best porters out there! If you like it, I highly recommend the XXI Black Butte. It's an Imperial Porter that is just outstanding.

    Trader Joe's has the Kennebunkport Pumpkin Ale in stock.
    Wasn't thinking of anything specific
    Like in a dream, when someone wakes up and screams
    Nothing too very scientific
    Just thinking of a series of dreams

    Snagged a couple of The Bruery's "Autumn Maple Barrel Aged" beers. WOW, WOW, WOW!!! Easily in my top 20, and an A+ all the way around. I will be going back this Friday to pick up some more. I cannot recommend this beer enough! It was actually some of last year's batch that they saved, but I believe they force carbonated the BA partition to fix the obvious issue from last year's under carbonated batch. So you've got a delicious autumn maple aged in barrels WITH an adequate and much improved level of carbonation. One of the best beers I have had in a long time. I sampled the Snicklefritz while I was down there as well. Not too shabby. However, their White Oak is downright fantastic. It's a barrel aged Belgian Pale, and I have never tasted so much wood in my mouth before (ok I set myself up for that one). It's literally as if you were drinking out of an oak cup, or something to that effect. 12% ABV and $25 to fill a growler, but it is sooo worth it I will be going in with a couple buddies on a growler of that this Friday. Unfortunately, The Bruery is getting pretty big and the employees had that "I work for Stone and I'm going to be a dick to you" attitude. I understand they have to be careful, but you can still let the visitors feel welcome at the very least. It won't keep me from going, I'll just be in and out, taking care of business

    Stone's 9-9-9 was a big disappointment. Not really sure what they were going for. It came off as a very thin bodied boozy porter that had no real identity. I could pick up the tangerine peel that they used, but it didn't help the brew overall. I'll get another one and sit on it, but I don't see this one aging at all to be honest. Glad you liked it though Mitch..... maybe I got a bad bottle. Who knows!

    Maui's Coconut Porter is amazing! I tried Angel City's Ale at the fair last night which was nice, and the Kona Fire Rock Pale Ale was surprisingly good. Over the weekend I also had a sip of the Marin Rasberry Trail and it was pretty bland, just like the rest of their beers. Pass on it.

    as mentioned in the other thread, these Vertical Epics are meant to be aged.

    have you had Kona's Pipeline Porter? I like them better than the Fire Rock, which is a bit thin IMHO. or maybe I was thinking of their Longboard Island Lager. come to think of it, I haven't had the Fire Rock in a while, which is probably why.

    how about this beer?

    I am hoping to pick some up soon, along with the 09s
    I BELIEVE I'll have another beer!

    I'm getting into beer more and based on this Wikipedia link there are two main varities of beer:

    1) Ales
    -Stouts
    -Porters
    -Lambics
    -Pales, browns, reds, etc.

    and

    2) Lagers
    -Pilsners
    -Bocks
    -Malt liquors

    Am I on the right track or . . . ?
    Edumacate me.
