Blaen, not sure where you are now, but you can leave those bottles with me. I'll take very special care of them.

If you're willing to take a ~1 hour train, I'd be happy to share a beer with you. I'm in the amsterdam area.

Already bringing back two suitcases filled with just beer and bubblewrap .

I'm prety confident that I can take back a couple extra bottles of blonde and/or 8, assuming I can get ahold of them, with me due to having slightly larger baggage limits than I thought.

I've done this before on a European trip. Only it wasn't beer but other souvenirs. Would you believe glass sculpture from Murano and beer glasses from Germany?

oh the dogfish head flight.

we have left to right...
Brews: What's On Tap? | Dogfish Head Craft Brewed Ales

Monty's m2E
sah'tea
firefly ale
my antonia
and sixty-one

not shown is the providence brewing collaboration stewed beer...
For August, the Province Ale Company brings a truly peculiar brew to the tap (and table) with a “Stewed Ale." This unique Ale contains 25% wheat malt, as well as two pounds per barrel of lean beef in the kettle along with ground mustard. Yes, we said lean beef. Salted hops round out this culinary concoction to create something that sounds like it could be more of a soup than a beer. However, Ragged Jordan and Nicolo insist this crazy sounding beer is very normal in flavor. A strong English style pale ale in its true essence, Stewed Ale stays true to its heart with notes of bready malt and spicy undertones from English East Kent Golding and Fuggles hops.

Meat as a kettle addition is nothing phenomenally new. I believe Uncommon Brewers does something similar to this with one of their seasonal brews, but they use an entire ham hock or something.

Rumor has it that rats falling into the boil kettle is what gave early Guinness some of its body and unique pallet.

Edit: Found it! Uncommon uses it in their Bacon Brown Ale. Unlike Rogue's abomination, the Bacon Brown is quite tasty. I went to a beer pairing dinner with some of the production guys and brewmaster for Uncommon a couple years ago, and they said they would likley stop making Bacon Brown until people forgot how bad the Rogue VooDoo Doughnut Maple Bacon Ale was. Too bad, I really liked the Bacon Brown

Oh, I completely understand. The Bacon Brown wasn't exactly bacon flavored, almost no meat flavor at all. It gave it something... different. If they hadn't told me what it was, I would have never guessed. The Hebrews and Muslims in the room bursting into flames would have been a dead giveaway though.

I got to stop at Russian River on my honeymoon, I did the "California Flight" listed on the left:



The Blind Pig was awesome, I actually liked it better than the Pliny

one other comment about dogfish... take a designated driver. with all but one beer (I think?) clocking in over 6.5%, it is not an easy place to drive home from.

Just had some Jubilaris at the Abbey of Our Lady of Koningshoeven.

It is on tap at the Abbey's restaurant as a special 25th anniversary brew of the La Trappe brand.

It is...interesting. 6% ABV, lightly bitter, and a definite fruity taste to it. Not something I'd have expected from a Trappist brew.

Had some Westvleteren 8 at St. Sixtus Abbey.

It's actually surprisingly different than Westlveteren 12. I thought it was going to be very close to 12, except for less alcohol content.

It's not. It is definitely it's own brew - and quite a good one.
