    If anybody wants to get their hands on some Heady Topper and is near West Covina, Stone Liquor is getting a big shipment of that stuff.

    Port Brewing Santa's Little Helper on the shelves already. It's great stuff. And from what I hear only one case of the bourbon barrel aged SLH will hit the county so I'll be scouting for that, hoping to get my hands on at least one.

    F me.

    Tonights menu...getting rid of the 2009's in the cellar.

    2009 Founders Nemesis - Didn't like...at all
    2009 Dogfish Head World Wide Stout - Potent but held up very well
    2009 Green Flash Silva Stout - Excellent

    Feeling buzzed now. It's my wife's 31st b-day...thought we'd do it right.

    Mmmm, Silva Stout. Had a couple pours of it at Tony's Darts Away on a random weekend a year or so ago. Very good stuff.

    Went up to KRBC on Friday. The Citra was awesome but the bourbon stout was AMAZING, tasted like bourbon candy goodness.

    Yeah, Class X is phenomenal. Maybe it was the time and setting of the one time I had it but I'd put it up in the top 3, and maybe even top 1 of bourbon barrel stouts I've ever had.

    Agreed. In my top 3, that's for sure. Hard to choose between Class X and a Black Xantus or Velvet Merkin. Damn, if it weren't so early in the day AND me having to work I could go for something like this right now!

    so, that booze road trip that my wench and I took for our 1st anniversary was a blast.

    Friday, on the way to Monte Rio (west of Santa Rosa) we pit-stopped at Firestone in Paso Robles where we ordered a set of Tap Room exclusive tasters: unfiltered DBA, Pivo Pils, Hefeweizen and IPA. all were great but I got a growler filled with the IPA which I have enjoyed since arriving home last night.

    Saturday at noon we went to Russian River where the place was full of hipsters, so we took the patio table rather than wait 45 minutes to get seated inside. had the usual offerings of Blind Pig and Pliny the Elder. on RR's exclusive menu was Shadow of the Doubt Imperial Porter which was enjoyable. if there's a bottle of that around here, I'd grab it.

    after RR, we stopped by Lagunitas where many people dressed in halloween costumes. I joked to my wife that I should have arrived as an hipster since Lagunitas lacked one. there we have cappuchino stout and imperial stout. holy **** were they both heavy, or seemed more so than what they had listed in %. it didn't help much that the tempurature in the tap room was uncomfortably warm and stuffy. above the table where we sat was a thermostat and it somehow was set at 86 degrees. the wife said that while I was at the bar ordering the drinks a staffer went up there to bring it down a notch. apparently the thermostat had a mind of its own as I saw the number increase to 87. needless to say it was a short visit even though a waitress brought us a complimentary treatment of cold water and pretzels. we tipped her nicely.

    Sunday morning after my luckless flyfishing attempt on the Russian (it was cold and foggy, not ideal but I had to try), we set off for and hour drive to Anderson Valley Brewing Co. had the tasters of Barney Flats Oatmeal Stout, Wild Turkey Bourbon Barrel Stout, Fal Hornin' Pumpkin Ale, Mendo Mello Estate Wet Hops Ale and Heelch o' Hops DIPA. I am now on the hunt for the bottles of the last two beers. I may never get tired of those!

    and lastly, on our way back from AVBC, we made an unplanned stop at Stumptown Brewery in Guernville down the highway from the cottage where we stayed. we just happened to find the place as we drove past it every time. very nice looking with a silo out front so that was what caught our eye. had their Blimey The Wanker ESB and Rat Bastard PA. both were great for a small brewery. man, what a great place, even their outdoor deck overlooked the river. next time I go to the Russian, I'm camping out in their dining hall.

    oh, and last but not least, KRBC could not be missed. besides, there was a 6er of Citras for the wench to claim. and their latest anniversary release, a coffee stout, was very tasty. too bad they couldn't fill the growlers with it, so I elected for the Class 5.

    this is most likely the road trip that I will never want to take again. ever. so much driving around, so little beer tasting and fishing time.
