Tomorrow me and a friend are going to this place:
http://www.thewoodenmatch.com/
I haven't had any alcohol since like November 12th?
I probably will just eat lunch, unless there's something I absolutely must drink. I doubt it though, this list doesn't look too awesome. They have Port Mongo IPA, which is fantastic, but at $12 a glass they can keep it. Southern Tier 2X IPA...that's pretty good. The only thing that appeals to me is the New Holland Dragonís Milk Bourbon Aged Stout.

So I quit drinking on Nov. 12th, but this is what I didn't get **** bag wasted on 1 month later:
Today I went to The Wooden match, which is an old train station in Bethlehem. I had a New Holland Dragon's Milk Stout...Holy ******* wow. This was totally awesome...
Then I had a Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout...it was OK. Very mellow, almost too mellow after the previous....
Then we ditched that place and went to the liberty Taproon:
I drank a Unibroue Trois Pistoles...This was absolutely amazing...I thought it was going to taste like a barley wine, which I'm not a fan of, but it was amazing. Very smooth, yet fruity with a slight cocoa flavor. I really liked this beer.
Next was a Left Hand Wake Up The Dead Imperial Stout:
It was smooth, and that's all I can say about that...10.2%...
Last was a Brew Works Bag Piper Scotch Ale which was 8.5%...it was sweet, but not too sweet. It smeeled sweeter than it was. It was very refreshing, and very tasteful, but yet almost watery.

The soundtrack of the night was Clutch. Songs included, " The Regulator" and "green buckets".

Started tonight with a couple 9% IPAs...for the life of me I can't remember which ones lol. Ended with a couple of these:

Shitty cellphone pic of Ommegang Abbey Ale. A "dessert" beer for sure. Incredibly rich; sweet (but not cloying); caramel, brown sugar, molasses flavors; unfiltered; 8.5%. Like meade, but far richer. Holy **** they were incredible.

I wonder how many monasteries there are in upstate new york....

I think it's awesome that Ommegang and places like Allagash can produce some really good belgian-style beers.

Tonight was dogfish head 120 minute, southern tier oak aged pumking, bells double cream stout, and lagunitas sucks holiday ale.
That pumking aged like that is so amazingly good. I really favored the cream stout as well. The lagunitas sucks ale didn't have that signature lagunitas taste. It tasted similar to Bells Hopslam.

Annual tapping today of the Cherry Awaken Stout at the local brewery, Trinity. They start with the always available Awaken and age it on 1lb of cherries per pint. The result is ******* heaven. The cherries impart a subtle tartness and fruit flavor, but not sweet or over the top in any way. I typically don't like fruit beers at all, but this one is fantastic. Was able to score 2 pints before it ran out.



Earlier in the day I had started with a pint of Trinity's Soul Ale, then finished with this, Decadent IPA.

Started with this and as always, it was wonderful.


Then went on to this, yuck. Should have read the small print on the bottle...


Then a few of these, always good.


Just had one of these and it was as good as I remember it. Give it a try if you haven't.

The list for new years eve includes:
Magic Hat Winter Howl and Victory Storm King Stout (those are the primer beers)
Then we move on to:
North Coast Old Rasputin Russian Imperian Stout
Founders Breakfast Stout
Fort Collins Chocolate Stout
New Holland Dragons Milk
Then hopefully Southern Tier Mocha...but I have more shopping to do tomorrow before the festivities start.
I may not be drinking those, but serving those as the party bartender to guests who have an appreciation for fine beers.
I'll probably be sipping McClelland's Single Malt Islay Scotch.
We'll see what happens.

Sipping on an Anchor Christmas right now. I don't like this year's quite as much as some previous vintages, but it's still pretty decent, and has one of the more classy labels in the beer kingdom IMO.

Had some of this the other day - not bad at all...

My wife's bar has this on tap. I thought it was OK but preferred Flying Dog Pearl Necklace Oyster Stout (special $3 pints!) and my favorite local, Heavy Seas Loose Cannon.
