Here's one from a couple months back. It's a Christmas ale from a pizza brew pub back home. Rudolph's Revenge - strong stuff.

Just finished a Pliny the Younger at Father's Office in Santa Monica. A happy find after the most fucked up 2 weeks of my life. RIP Mom.

At Toronado for Lost Abbey night: Cable Car, Veritas 007, Red Poppy, Duck Duck Gooze, Cuvee de Tomme, 100% Barrel-aged Serpent's Stout

Later that night I started talking to the guys from Lost Abbey and gave them some beer from the brewery I work for and got invited into Toronado's secret room where I played awesome games and drank free all night. Truly the best beer experience ever.

Russian River night: Bottleworks IX Deviation, Beatification, Toronado 20th

B-Dawg:

While scrolling, the tap list was the first image I saw, and I knew it was Toronado. That place is ridiculous.

I hope I can touch base with fellow homebrewing sufu users. Do you typically make your own recipes or use existing ones? I'm just starting to create my own.

B-Dawg, I haven't been able to rep you for like 6 months. Don't know what's up, but I should contact the mods soon.

Great stuff.

B-Dawg, why are you fermenting your sours where they can be exposed to light?

Recently met a guy with the coolest job ever. He's the beer manager for a place back in PA called "Tap and Table". His full time job is to travel around the world sampling the best brews and bringing them back to the restaurant a case at a time.

The restaurant has the most ridiculous beer selection Ive ever seen. He spends two weeks out of each month in the store educating the clientele and the other two weeks abroad sampling beer. The only way I can imagine getting that job would be to give God a blow job.

Surly: Toronado rules. I haven't gone straight from a recipe ever, but when I am interested in a style I generally look up as many recipes as I can and work from there deciding what I want to achieve with that beer.

TT: Some day, haha :)

Soonami: If I took those iPhone pics in the dark closet where those beers now reside they would look even shittier. Have no fear, they are safe.

Just received some beer from a trade. Can't wait to partake.

I'm a pedestrian. I drink:

Carlsberg%20-%20Liverpool%20Ball.jpg

Sure they sponsor Liverpool, but I can forgive that. Not really digging the bottle redesign they did over the last year though.

I support Liverpool and even I don't drink it (btw it's the last season of sponsorship)

That color is fantastic. Looking forward to hearing how it turns out.

Indeed. The juice from the smooshed up cherries turned the amber/mahogany color blood red. I am excited about that one too.

Did you use the same base for all three sours with fruit? If so what was the grain bill and yeast.

From the past month or two

Dark Horse Perkulator. Really good coffee stout

4392622029_24d37317dc.jpg

Founders Double Trouble. A DIPA on par with the rest. Good, nothing out of the ordinary though

4392618263_9c6d81d380.jpg

Three Floyds Lord Admiral Nelson. Very good. Nice and hoppy, with almost a red ale maltiness

4393377750_e8289718cc.jpg

And Hopslam. What can I say that hasn't already been said about it before? The best part is the price. Sure, it's expensive for a 6pack, but when broken down, it comes to a little over $5 for a bomber. At least, that's how I've been justifying it to myself.

For sure hit up The Horse Brass. They have a great selection of fantastic beers, and they serve scotch eggs. Belmont Station is also a 5min walk away - they are a beer store with a small beer cafe with about 10 taps I think of also awesome beer. I hardly ever go up to Portland but it seems that when I do, 9/10 I end up at the brass.
