So I bought a 24 pack of Firestone Walker brews at my local Costco for $25 this weekend.
Included in it are the delicious Velvet Merlin stout, the refreshing Pale Ale 31, the malty amber Double Barrel Ale, and the hoppy, earthy, boozy Union Jack IPA.
Also at my local Costco was a 24 pack of Stone IPA for $27 and Sierra Nevada Pale Ale for $24. I wish Stone and Sierra Nevada did a mix pack like Firestone.
Last year at Costco I picked up a mixed 24 pack of Anderson Valley brews. They were great.

Enjoyed some Old Chubb over the weekend. Also used it for making my beer can chicken.

Sipping on a friend's imperial stout. This is seriously one of the most ridiculously dark, boozy, and complex imperial stouts I've ever had. Syrupy, tons of alcohol bite on the tongue, I'm getting a lot of barrel ageing, hazelnuts, and a finish of guava and mild tropical fruits. I certainly hope he gets his own brewing company off the ground because this one would be a sure hit.

I know this has been said before, but it just should be restated now and again. As I sit here with a fresh, slightly frosted pint of
"Pliny the Elder"(RRBC) in my living room, some things are just too good to be rushed. If you have not sampled this offering yet,
then I highly suggest you pursue it at once. For those who like hops, this is a fine, fine specimen..

Firestone Walker Invitational Beer Fest
In case you haven't gotten a ticket yet, there are still a few left. This is a GO TO event if you can make it. The list of breweries representing is on the website below. They also just announced these additions: Bell's Brewery, Odell Brewing Co., New Belgium, Southern Tier Brewing Co., and Yo-Ho (Japan). If you're on FB, you should add them to keep abreast of additional breweries. It's a 5 hour event. Going to be epic.

It is, and it's that time of the year when "the Younger" is out...
