Seconds on Trois Pistoles and all Founders beers! On the PAcific NW tip, I have had some great beers from Two Beers Brewing Co in Seattle. If you come across one, I highly recommend it!

Haven't bought beer in about a month. This was my 1st buy in awhile. Damn good, although not as good as their Breakfast Stout.


We just got a huge order of the breakfast stout at the shop, definitely gonna have to pick some up

The Breakfast Stout is the best beer that I have tasted. Granted, I have quite a few I haven't tasted!

I've been looking for a good schwarzbier lately, but I've been unable to find any. Is it out of season or something?

I discovered Kostritzer on a works trip to Germany, super good, I'd drink it all the time if I could get this in the UK

There is a distinct lack of dark beers in the UK as most folk like normal laaager

As a result I've taken to brewing my own dark beers....

Lol, I picked up a 4-pack of Ommegang Scythe and Sickle, pretty nice. We also have a bomber of their Seduction ale with chocolate and cherries, was delicious when we had it back in February, hopefully it's only got better with time.

A local brewery does weekly firkins on Thursdays, tonight it was a Tiramisu Brown Ale. Their regular brown with espresso, chocolate, lady fingers, and marscapone cheese added. It was amazing, tasted just like the dessert. Unfortunately it sold out in about 10 minutes so I only got one.

Stone RIS is amazon. I've only had it once at a brew fest in Missouri since they aren't distributed here in Kansas. Also Midwest Beerfest is this weekend here in Wichita! 300+ beers FTW!

It's quite good. More of a malty character up front than most other stones, and then the trad stone hops comes in a bit after and lingers. Starts sweet but finishes dryish. Interesting. It's probably not sweet by most barley wine standards, but it's malty by Stone's.

I had the 2011 version, apparently they tweak it yearly.

Definitely worth checking out. There's also a "belgo" version, which I might prefer but haven't had in a while.

I love Ommegang, but I can't find any of their newer/smaller-batch brews out in LA (although I'm thankful for the Saison and Dubbel and Three Philosophers I can get).

The 10 is like cumming stupid hard with a finger up your butt

As per the simile, my girlfriend won't touch it
