one more year and I get to drink. Aunt Stephanie promised to take me to Stone Brewery and then of course to Hooters for some Hot Wings.

I was surprised to find some Oaked Bastard also and enjoyed every drop. That's one of my fave beers for sure.. Here is what's on today's menu:

Sam Adam Hallertau Imperial Pilsner
A nice hoppy beer by Sam Adams. Picked up a 4 pack at Bevmo and love it.

Finally had the 11th Anniversary tonight. Damn, that stuff is intense.
Btw, I think I've mentioned it before (but just reminded of it because my dad picked up another bottle), you hop heads need to try Port Brewing's Hop 15. It's in stock right now at BevMo.

I had the Moylan's Hopsickle last Thursday evening. Very complex and definitely lots going on. Not quite as devastating to the palate as Stone's Ruination (which left me dissapointed because I am a hop head and thought a "hopsickle" would be up there in bitterness). I found the balanced lacked a bit, but overall I enjoyed it and would grab another one next time at Liquorama.
Had the Hop Ottin IPA on Friday night. DELICIOUS !!! I had it once on draft at The Yardhouse, but that was after I had a crappy so called Hef from Lucille's BBQ which totally interfered with the greatness of the Hop Ottin IPA. I was glad I picked up a 6'er of it in bottles. Definitely up there with my favorite IPAs. Very well balanced as far as the malt & hops go. It really doesn't get any better.

Lagunitas Imperial Red is out now. Had some with dsctaz yesterday. Good stuff.

Blue Moon has a winter ale out called Full Moon. I just got some yesterday and it's really good. I don't have a picture because it's pretty new and I couldn't find a jpeg anywhere. It's brewed with roasted malts and dark Belgian sugar.
Also got the Sam Adams Imperial Pilsner today that Mitchrock recommended above. That stuff is strong! It's really rich. I don't think I'll get it again, but definitely good for those who like the hops.
I had to go to Bevmo for this so I grabbed a Stone 11th anniversary while I was at it... can't wait to try it.

Innis & Gunn oak-aged beer is like no other.
Our pioneering production process is unique to us, a world first.
In fact, it was discovered by accident!
Using oak to age beer is unheard of. But, the flavours imparted by the oak barrels (previously used to mature bourbon) lend an incredible depth of
taste. Think vanilla, toffee and orange aromas, with a malty,
lightly oaked palate; soothing and warm in the finish.
There is nothing like this among mass produced beers.
Try it and see for yourself...
