No worries Joe, I scored plenty of them so there's absolutely no rush at this point. They are just sitting in the basement now. As far as shipping goes, I can originate shipping myself via UPS or FedEx, but if you already have an account with a commercial address, I'm sure it would be cheaper for you to email me the label from your end. Either way, we'll get your w00t on.

Had a pretty decent beer weekend

Saturday, the Flying Saucer had a Sour Day event. The Big Boss "Sunday Punch", and the North Coast "Cherry Berlinner" were both perfect Saturday brews. Light and refreshing, though I did break up the sour taste with a Big Boss "Night Knight" Black IPA.

Yesterday I had DeStihl's "Sour Cherry Stout" on draft. I want a keg of this at home. So very good! I also took a sneak taste of my 3.5 year old lambic, which I think is ready to be fruited and bottled.

Joe you can get them on the east coast too.

They had them at my local whole foodses.

The Sculpin seems to have more bittering hops vs aromatic in the 90, though I am easily way off considering the brief review of recipes.
Sculpin is a great Northwest-style IPA, whereas Dogfish 90 is more traditional east-coast style. If you like Dogfish 90, try Lagunitas Sucks. A little smoother and less boozy than 90.

Like I said said Joe, there's no rush, so go ahead and look around where you are a bit more and see if you can find them locally. If you can't, I got you covered.

Incidentally, I found them today at Costco for $6.99 ea., so I just got another case there and promptly returned all the bottles I bought last night at BevMo for $11.99 ea. (in spite of the BevMo clerk trying to tell me that you can't return alcohol. Pffff! ).

No ****?

When I lived in SD, you had to go to the brewery to get W00tstout 1.0 - Not even the local specialty shops had it. I didn't realize they'd ramped up production so much.

Well, truth be told, the Costco near me (Concord) is pretty phenomenal with the stuff they come up with. I think the local buyer is an enthusiast him/herself, and I doubt it is the norm across all stores. In contrast, I actually had to call 4 or 5 Bevmo stores in the area until I found one that carried it last night. Regardless, I'm quite sure the production has indeed ramped up significantly on this year's w00t due to its ever increasing popularity/demand alone.

Remotely related trivia: This year is the 30th anniversary of "Stand By Me".

Heavy Seas TropiCannon Tropical IPA - Never had anything like it. Aromas of the citrus-y hops blend with fruity vapors but aren't but a touch sweet because of the hoppy bitterness keeping it in check. A truly unique and surprising experience.

Quote:
TropiCannon clocks in at 7.25% & packs a full blast of blood orange, grapefruit, mango and lemon flavor. We've amped up the citrus with fAmarillo and Simcoe hops. We've introduced dried grapefruit, orange and lemon peel in the brewing process and added mango, blood orange and more grapefruit post-fermentation.

What's a guy got to do to get in on this W00tstout gig? I have PayPal and I'm not afraid to use it.

Edit: Or I can trade it for an unusual local brew if you like. Straight to Ale, Blue Pants, Salty Nut, and some of the others all have some stellar beers.

My best friend lives in Seattle and is flying down this weekend for business, so he's bringing me a whole bunch of Melvin IPAs and 2x4 DIPAs. I can't get them in CA and their single IPA is the best I've ever had, Pliny the Elder included. Super excited.

My niece and a couple of her coworkers came over tonight and wanted to "try some stout beers", so I obliged.



One of them may have sworn off stouts forever, but the other two have most definitely become converts.

Nice, I gotta get me some of that Black Tuesday. The annual sale is coming up soon. Where did you score that Avery Mephistopheles ?
