    Can't find any good brews locally where I live so I am off on my monthly beer store trip today... I've got a list of what to look for but wanted you guys to give some suggestions. Here is what is on my list so far:

    Trappist Westvleteren
    Chimay - blue or red
    Unibroue - maybe Trois Pistole
    SN Celebration
    Troegs Mad Elf
    Rogue Choc Stout
    Fullers London Porter
    Founders Breakfast
    Three Floyds Dark Lord

    and I'll be picking up a couple of the old stand-bys :

    Sam Smith Oatmeal Stout
    Troegs Oatmeal Stout
    Rogue Dead Guy Ale

    I'm not a huge fan of hoppy bears, especially this time of year. I will sometimes go for an Arrogant Bastard or a 90 min IPA.

    Since you are shunning the Bastard this time, get some Maudite.

    yeah I was able to get grants perfect porter here. There is a store in Rochester called Beers of the world, they have a couple thousand kinds of beer or something absurd like that with pretty much any beer I want.

    If you are going to buy a Unibroue-Trois Pistole, buy 2. Drink one soon enough and keep the other one for 2 to 5 years. You cannot believe how tasty the unibroue beers are when they are old. I have the luxury to have a friend, working for unibroue, that has most years of their beer. The unibroue are like wine, the older the better.

    Good luck and let us know in a couple of year if it was true or if I just wasted your time.

    Well they didnt have everything I wanted so this is what I ended up with:

    SN Celebration
    Fullers Porter
    Troegs Mad Elf
    Avery Ellie's Brown Ale
    Yard Brewing Tavern Porter
    Unibroue Trois Pistole
    Rogue Hazlenut Brown
    Left Hand Milk Stout
    Anchor Porter
    Dogfish Head Raison D'Etre

    Not a bad haul... still had 6 Troegs Oatmeals and couple Dogfish Punkin Ales so these new ones should fill out the beer fridge nicely.
