While I've been stuck in Vancouver had a really nice beer, Granville Island Brewery Winter. Reminds me of anderson valley winter solstice with the nice kick of vanilla at the end. Highly recommended if they have it in the states anywhere.

Oh I have gone on expensive shopping sprees and still do. For me its just more enjoyable to savor in my own home.

In the end, I hate people. So I'm much more comfortable popping open a bottle at home or going to a bar with friends.

Just give me beer! At home, at fests at backyard shares (we really need to make this happen!). Just beer me! I've been taking advantage of the barter system lately. I take home baked cookies to bars, and get free beers in return. Plus I have a lot of waitresses and bartenders who are always happy to see me.

So I stumbled on to this fine specimen today at a local liquor store...
Stone Sublimely Self Righteous Ale....I have to say it is exceptionally good. A dark ale, and supposedly fairly new. Anyone else tried it?
Port Brewing Mongo IPA will be my second recommendation....out of a 22oz bottle it is very good, served from the kegg
it is phenominal...

The Sublimely Self Righteous Ale was their 11th Anniversary Ale, only to be renamed and part of the year round lineup. The Sublimely Self Righteous has been out for about 3 years now. Good beer.

Does anyone here have or can get a Bruery Partridge in a Pear Tree? I would really like to have one for the eventual Vertical 12 days of Christmas. I am willing to trade. I have 100% barrel aged 2 Turtle Doves, 100% barrel aged Coton, 100% Autumn Maple, heck, I'll trade a 2011 Black Tuesday.

Hate to say it, but it would take you more than those 4 to land you a PIAPT. The damn things go for hundreds on e-bay, and I would imagine the Barrel Aged version (i think it was limited to 250 bottles) would go for even more.

We bought a ton of Bruery beers at Lone Hill Liquor before they hit the map. PIAPT was 10 bucks, if that, and you could buy as much as you wanted. After Black Tuesday came out, things changed and Partridge was a new collectible. I have a few PIAPT's and one of the barrel aged ones. I'm hanging onto them for special occasions, likely a vertical. I'm not being a hoarder - but I am unwilling to trade but would definitely send you an invite when one of them gets opened. Its a great beer, but dont give up your life savings for it. As a RS member you know they still have tons of it left and pour it at special events.
