Somebody please lemme know when "Power of the Unit" boxers are available in the 11W Dry Goods store.
If you haven't already, you must visit Torst in Brooklyn. It's the Evil Twiniest bar with the most advanced beer storage / pouring system on the planet.
Interesting; I've always felt Blue Moon was a poor man's Hitachino Nest.
Ed Fitz is deserving of its accolades, but my personal standard for American Porter is Deschutes Black Butte Porter.
Zombie Dust is brilliant. My IPA Hall of Fame also includes Heady Topper by The Alchemist, Lawson's Finest Double Sunshine, Pseudo Sue by Toppling Goliath and Firestone Walker Union Jack.
My favorite coffee stout is Beer Geek Brunch Weasel by Mikkeller. The coffee they use is harvested from the excrement of the civet. It's extremely robust and slightly disturbing.
Never understood the Fat Tire hoopla. I put it in the same echelon as Shiner Bock and Spotted Cow (among others); they're pounders. All of them go down easy and serve their purpose, but there's really not much going on flavor wise.
If you can get your hands on it, I recommend Belching Beaver Peanut Butter Milk stout.
FIND another Wiggins?!?! Good luck...
Someone should let Kirk know that if he commits, superfan IRISHFURY would most certainly be very ummm... appreciative.
Sorry, not ready to let that one go just yet.
We all have our peccadilloes. And while I applaud your openness, perhaps some things are best left unsaid.
