state your beer, drinkers

Word! The bar had a vintage bottle sale. They had Rodenbach 08 for 15 and consecration for 25. It made more sense to get RR than the Rodenbach.

Yeah, $25 for a batch 1 Consecration? That's awesome dude, great price.

Second to last from the swap, taking a little of the edge off while studying for finals (this is a good idea, right?). Time for another swap soon? :)

I'd be up for another swap too in about a month or so, I should have a lot of good stuff from my road trip to send to somebody. Drank these last night, really enjoying everything I've had from Two Brothers:

I had a bottle of this today. It was pretty good. Unique IPA. Probably the oak.

Wow man yeah, I just opened this Bitter American and it's much better than I expected. Really looking forward to getting some Narragansett Summer cans after seeing how much people like it on BA.

Unable to get it here in Chicago, I'm usually craving Yuengling Lager. I haven't had any of their other offerings, but have heard that they're just okay.

Courtesy of youkinorn. Nice IPA, super tropical fruity nose. Taste wasn't quite as fruity but was still really nice, liked this one a lot.

^^ I went to Saint Arnolds last time I was in Houston, but I don't remember trying that one. Their beer is pretty good, their lighter stuff the kind of beer you can drink all day while you're grilling out.

It's a series of IPA/DIPAs they do, changes regularly. #11 is the most recent I think, came out in late March/early April.

You guys get Allagash in Cali?

I've been drinking Ithaca Hop Stash for the last few days since it came out. Really chill IPA, was expecting something more like Flower Power but it's a nice change of pace.

I volunteered at the American Craft Beer Fest this past weekend. I wristbanded people after they got their id's checked for like 2 hours then i got to cut the lines and sample a bunch of beers for the final 2 hours of the fest. Met Jason and Todd Alstrom, founders of BeerAdvocate, we enjoyed Surly's Five - a pretty freaking awesome sour that I will definitely not get to try again.

I did not take any pictures but some of the other highlights were Bobcat Cafe from Vermont's Saison, Lawson's Finest Double Sunshipe DIPA and Acer Quercus (http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/17980/68900) which is a collab with the Bruery, DFH WWS through a Randall, Cisco Peschisch Woods (awesome peach sour), Duck Rabbit End of Reason (http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/9790/66698) Baltic Porter aged with sour cherries, Goose Island BCBVS, Long Trail Triple Bag and a few others

also tried to get the Ithaca Stash IPA but they were out of it by the time i got around to them

Enjoyed this as well: had never seen it in 12 oz format, but my buddy brought over a wachusett mixed 12 which included 3 of these (normally 6$+ a bomber) and we split this

Stylish Pilot: Smutty Robust Porter is definitely one of the best american porters

Thomas: allagash white pitchers is an awesome idea for warm weather! not liking the glasswear though :P
