We brought a 6'er of it to Vegas this last weekend and it was surprisingly bitter ! Kind of rough going down......

I highly recommend the Alaskan Winter Ale. Such a great one to put down in the winter, and extra winter-like with the spruce tips used in the brewing process.
The Anderson Valley Winter Solstice was a bit of a letdown. All of their brews I have had thus far have been nothing but top notch - but this was the first letdown of theirs.

Agree with you on the Alaskan Winter. Drank quite a bit of that stuff last year. BevMo had some great pricing on it right after xmas and I'm hoping they'll do that again.

Chummy consumes Samuel Smith Oatmeal Stout.
Chummy consumes Downtown Brown.
Chummy consumes BL Smooths when he wants to drink for hours and hours. Chummy asks you to refrain from obvious lame jokes here.
Chummy drinks vodka and gin too.

I just had a fantastic beer - Kaiser Octoberfest from Avery. It was on tap at a Lampost Pizza in Ladera Ranch. Not bottled as far as I know. This pizza place brews their own beers and always has some good guest beers on tap. I also had some Anchor Steam Holliday Ale on tap. I go to this place nearly every Sunday and am never disappointed in the beer selection. They have Stone Ruination on tap right now as well.

Kaiser Octoberfest was indeed bottled. I bought one for my dad... but he drank it without me. :(
