    I see Black Diamond has opened a new huge taproom in Concord. My company's Regional offices are in Concord. I haven't been invited to go back there for some time now. I think they need to invite me. I've been to EJ Phair, but had not made a venture to Black Diamond in Walnut Creek previously. Sounds pretty awesome though...

    Bell's is awesome. Two Hearted Ale is sublime. I was in Detroit for a job interview when I had my first taste. I haven't had the Oatmeal Stout though.

    Bastard.


    ;)

    Just got back from an LA trip last night. We finished our conference at 3:00 and the flight back wasn't till 7:50. Green Flash IPA on tap, a couple bottles of Delirium, and a Firestone Walker Union Jack on tap later made for a tough plane ride to keep my eyes open. Good times with workmates I hadn't seen for several years though.

    I like all of Green Flash's stuff. The Trippel is great. Le Freak is one of my faves. West Coast IPA is really good. They finally started selling here in NM.

    First time I've been able to get my hands on Firestone Walker though. Glad to have finally tasted it.

    I just got back from the liquor store... my order came in.
    Let's just say I spent over $450, and I do not regret a single thing.

    Add this to my recent $140 Unibroue 17 order, and it's going to be a good year.

    EDIT: I'm sure Shred would like to know what I got, so here's the list:

    8 - Lava Smoked Imperial Stout
    14 - St. Ambroise Russian Imperial Stout (bourbon wood-aged)
    14 - Dominus Vobiscum Triple
    14 - Affligem Tripel
    4 - La Chouffe
    3 - Fuller's Vintage Ale (2009)
    2 - Southern Tier Choklat
    8 - Solstice D'Hiver
    14 - Brooklyn Monster Ale
    10 - Nogne 0 Imperial Stout

    The spring release just came out, so I'll be adding some IPAs to this list shortly... then I'm done for a while.

    I'd suggest a refrigerator. haha. Don't want all that good stuff to go icky. Or are you saving it for those drinking games from the book below? I wouldn't think it fitting to waste all that wonderfulness on drinking games either... Get a fridge.

    Impressive. Most impressive.

    LOL, I knew somebody would mention the drinking game! Don't worry, I'd never drink this stock without appreciating every drop!
    I usually drink this stuff before it reaches 18 months old, so it should be okay in my basement here. I would prefer about 10 degrees colder, but I can't get a fridge at this moment :(

    on St. Patricks Day, I enjoyed a few new beers to me, which I really enjoyed

    Allagash Black
    Highland Oatmeal Porter
    Tommy Knocker Coco Porter

    I enjoyed these with a very good shepards pie.

    Ah, basement. Ok, you're in the clear. It looks like kitchen cabinets. Must be nice to have a finished basement. Few homes in Albuquerque have basements, which is unfortunate.
