Found this on sale for just a few bucks more than my usual Glenlivet 12. Pretty good. A bit smoother and more vanilla flavor than the standard. Would be a good one for people who don't appreciate the smokey notes as much.

I'm sitting at the bar and was just wondering what that was.

Interesting beer. I think this is the first hazy IPA I have tried with a wheat/oat base. Gives it a very light flavor with a bready finish that reminds my taste buds of pretzels. Also it's 8% but drinks like 6%.

Moro Oro, Collaboration Milkshake NE DIPA with Mosaic, Blood Orange and Blueberries

Not my usual cup of tea. I'm not a fan of milk stouts or beers brewed with milk sugar but this one managed to combine the interesting flavor of a milk stout with the deliciousness of a NE DIPA. I wouldn't drink this all the time but it was an interesting beer to try.

Would recommend. Strong as fuck at 12% but not particularly boozy, great scotch/english style ale, and apparently it ages well (get back to me in 2 years on that). I'm gonna have to go back and get a few more of these.

Novo Brazil Quadruple Ale - This one got me drunk. Do not consume on an empty stomach. Or do, but don't be surprised when you catch a buzz.

A bit boozy but well balanced with classic malty flavors.

Continuing on the theme of 10% + beers, last night I tried this.



Freaking delicious. Not too hoppy not too boozy. My girlfriend guessed the ABV at 7.5% so it's way easier to drink than the numbers would suggust.

So I found a salvage title (theft) awd, 41k mile 2016 Highlander at Copart. Needs new keys, no visible damage. Current bid $6100. Probably all-in around $10k max. Told Wifey and got an angry "I don't want to hear it. I'm not even listening to your" esponse. That is a $35k car. W.t.f. save $20k, but no because it's been stolen.

This beer is good. Like really good.

I'm always looking for good dark beers that aren't sweet. Too many stouts and porters have a bunch of vanilla or whatever in them to make them more palatable to the Starbucks Crapachino drinkers. Well this beer is just what it should be, dark, smokey and delicious. They call it a dark IPA on the can (then they call it a dark ale in the description) but there's nothing IPA esq in the beer.

Had some other locals last week, there were some decent things, wasn't blown away by the beer, but one wouldn't suffer in this region either.
