Three Headed Hop Monster….

We found a place that still had a keg…..and it led to bad decisions, especially if you drink 3 glasses of it.

IMAG0341

Probably a top 3 IPA for me, and it’s 9.5% ABV.

Fuck it, let’s get drunk.

3 glasses later…

IMAG0342

SILVA STOUT?! FUCK YEA LET’S SPLIT THIS SHIT.

I’m only slightly drunk now, let’s go home and keep going.

IMAG0343

Oh yeah, this hits the spot, but that small bottle makes me feel inadequate…

IMAG0344

MUCH BETTER.

Small bottle night

Sometimes, not everyone can man up and hang out, but small bottles were specifically designed by NASA to accommodate very small groups. Thank god for NASA.

Crooked Stave Hop Savant: Reminds me of Hose, with a more aggressive Brett profile. Really nice change of pace from all the Hose I’ve been drinking lately.

IMAG0337

Crooked Stave Vieille: This winter version with Cranberry and spices is fantastic. Getting close to tasting like red hots, but doesn’t quite toe over the line. One of my favorite beers to dome solo.

de Garde Special Rouge: Holy shitballs Batman! There is an enormous amount of jam in this bottle. I could pour this sucker on cheesecake and be really happy. Wait, I should actually do that…

HOMEBREW LAMBICS!

If you go to de Garde once, might as well go again right?!

Yeah, we have problems.

IMAG0334 IMAG0335

But that Imperial Cherry/Marion Bu is the shit.

More Tin Bucket

They are really kicking their own asses with all the events they are having around their anniversary. This particular day was a de Garde bottle release.

Gotta have a glass of Ching Ching when it’s on draft. 🙂

IMAG0332

Wooo bottles! Aged in gin barrels if I’m not mistaken.

My denver buddy is the best. Love that dude.

Trip to de Garde

Went out for the latest release, and it was nice and relaxed for the most part. Well done de Garde, well done.

IMAG0316 IMAG0315 IMAG0314

The winner: Imperial Purple Raz Bu, but the Boysen is right there, and will surpass Imperial Purple as it gets more funky and complex.

Tin Bucket

Dropped in to Tin Bucket’s vintage keg tapping. Did not leave disappointed.

IMAG0323

Ballast Point Four Roses Victory at Sea: Best Ballast Point beer I’ve ever had. So ridiculously good, like chocolate milk!

IMAG0324

Sante Adairus Stenciled Pages: Close, but not quite as good as Nonna’s #7, probably because this is an older bottle. Anyways, TICK!
