Not a big Stout lover but, Damn!
I’ll admit, I bought it purely for the bottle cap. Had very low expectations… it still disappointed. Oh well.
Should have known not to put it in my Texans glass. Probably couldn’t of helped.

My reward, check!
Still outstanding but seemed really sweet this year. Previous batches seemed to be a bit hoppier with a little less sweetness. Also, I’ve never really tasted the 10% as much as this year.
Still amazing but different, at least to me. Last year’s batch was superior IMO.
Surly’s Furious IPA
Had the Abrasive and I’m not sure which I prefer. Different brews and I loved both of them. Either way, you can’t lose.
Breakside Brewery’s’s Wanderlust IPA.
Breakside just recently started distributing to Washington but they have been getting lots of attention down in Oregon.
Wow, this is a really good IPA. Gonna put this in the regular line up. $4.99 a bomber is a steal for this.
Had my first taste of Cigar City’s Jai Alai.
It was good but not outstanding. At least IMO. I’m glad I was able to try it but won’t be seeking it out.
Beer Mail! Gotta love trading.
Surly Abrasive Ale.
This is some good stuff!
If only I had some Hopslam to go with it!
Wormtown’s - Be Happy IPA
Acquired through a trade with a trader on the east coast. This is a really great big IPA. Big piney burst followed by some citrus flavors. Really a nice bright IPA that drinks easily. Got one left and I’m going to enjoy it!
And, very cool can!
I’ve got to pick out a special Super Bowl beer now for the game.
Dirty Bucket - Filthy Hopping IPA
Dirty Bucket has been one of my favorite local breweries to visit. Especially in the summer. Great little brewery and a great owner/brewer. My wife and I love to go there with our dog and just sit outside and enjoy the beer. Now they are finally canning.
Filthy Hoppin is an outstanding IPA. Big pine notes hit you first and then a nice light and kinda roasty malt balances it out. Just really drinkable.
Dick’s Brewing 12th Man Pale Ale. Decent enough but who cares.
