    Shyrmp sent me Stone ales last year for Secret Santa. I liked them all.

    You posted in the wrong spot though, BV. ;) God, you mods do whatever you want around here. :D

    I don't think $80 worth of specialty beers is synonymous with drunken college shenanigans.

    Also, yes, the Two-Hearted ale is awesome. A bunch of those (including the Stone's Oaked ale) I haven't tried yet - looking forward to sampling many of them :D

    A bunch are gifts for Jenn's dad and brother when we go up for Christmas.

    nono....everyone in college used to display every bottle of liqour they ever drank on their shelf/cupboard/mantle, especially when filled with multi colored highlighters.

    Good choice in beer, but I had to giggle at the display, that's all.

    If you haven't already, check out Bells Amber Ale.

    Ruination IPA and Terrapin India Brown Ale FTW

    I see you have two beers from the "Heavy Seas" series, the Loose Cannon and the Winter Storm. 'Round here where they're brewed, you can get the "Heavy Seas Sunken Sampler" which is a 12-pack that contains 3 beers each of 4 different Clipper City Heavy Seas beers, all of which range from between 7.5% - 10.0% ABV. They are my personal favorite local brewery and are always present at the local brewers festivals and have special events on the Inner Harbor's resident Clipper Ship summertime booze cruises. I have finished a whole 12-pack Heavy Seas Sampler by myself twice and on both occasions, I was left unfit to operate velcro.

    Quite a nice selection. I just had the Heavy Seas sampler pack and it was awesome. I highly suggest getting some stuff from Southern Tier in that lineup though. Much like Bell's pretty much everything they make is outstanding and a bit different. My favorites by Southern Tier are Pumking Ale, which it's a bit too late in the season for but probably my favorite beer ever. Their Gemini Imperial is AWESOME which is a mix of Hoppe and Unearthly ipa. They also have a seasonal out now called Krampus christmas ale, and is the best hoppy lager I've ever had.

    Also notable is the Old Man Winter ale...

    They had some Bell's Amber Ale on tap at the place I got all of these, and I had a Bell's IPA last weekend... both delicious :thumb:

    being only 30 mins from Pittsburgh, i've been diggin some of the Penn Brewey's products. the Penn Dark (btw voted best dark beer in the world 'World Beer Cup 2000') is awesome, i highly recommend it to anyone who has access to it.

    i'm easily satisfied with a 12pk of Magic Hat #9 usually though :biggrin:

    Needs more hops. And an IPA should be closer to 7% ABV, not 5% ABV.

    I've never been a big fan of porters. The beer store does carry it, though.

    chicodude; I have been informed that it's the last bottle of the SN Harvest in the county. It certainly was the last one in the store, tucked away - Jenn spotted it and snatched it up. It's being given to her father but I will be finagling a taste of it for sure!

    That looked like the selection in my kitchen last night. Invited my employees over for a big BBQ dinner (catered) and a large variety of beer.

    If someone screams out "I had sex" and another one is googling "alabama hot pocket", does that make me a bad boss?

    Was that a gift pack? I'm not a big beer guy, but it would be nice to pick up something like that to find out what I like in "gourmet beer" rather than buying expensive six packs that I don't like.

    Other than that, I say Guinness...
