FBS is grreeeeeat! I am really looking forward to the Meridien Pint brunch where they tap FBS, CBS, two years of KBS, Blushing Monk and Backwoods Bastard


For only $10 more the Founders brunch at Meridian is a slam dunk compared to that one.

this is the first i've heard of this brunch - why didn't you tell us about it before?!?

the founders brunch is actually $25 more - there is an obligatory $10 gratuity and $5 tax, so $65 total.

i'm running a 15 km that morning... this might be the perfect recoup meal ;D

finally hit up churchkey tonight for the first time.  yes, bad boy, bad.

enjoyed:
MAHR'S BRU WEISSE
SCALDIS TRIPLE BLONDE
KASTEEL TRIPEL
SCALDIS NOL
PANNEPOT
FOUNDERS BREAKFAST STOUT
(from http://www.birchandbarley.com/documents/CKDRAFTWEDNESDAY11-16-2011.pdf)

favs: scaldis tripel, scaldis Noel, and the breakfast stout (obviously).  pannepot was quite interesting but not quite a top 3 of the evening.  all beers were on tap.  
 
in reality what i enjoyed the most was the fact that someone else picked up the tab ;D  that, and the deep fried mac and cheese.  yes, i know you're not supposed to like it - but you try resisting that.  <game=over>

speaking of Ommegang, local Costcos now have their Holiday gift packs

3 750s (Three Philosophers, Gnomegang and Hennepin) plus a nice tasting glass for 21.99 - seems like a great deal to me

But getting a Costco membership would kill my indie cred.

Trader Joes Vintage Ale 2011 out next week.

Great value, very good Belgian, made by Unibroue.

Or just get a four pack of your favorite Unibroue beer. It's about the same cost per ounce.

FYI there is this great alternative to the minivan called "the metro" :P

no way in hell i was driving after that many beers.  i could have gotten in an accident and damaged my car.

I got one last year.  The glass has a nice shape but the gold trim isn't holding up too well after a year of use.

Let us know what you think of that one. Reviews I've read have been mixed. It's a beer made with chilis.

I just bought a chilli pepper porter...Left Hand Fade to Black Vol. 3. Not a big fan of that brewery, but their Fade to Black series has been excellent, and this one it too. $9.49/six pack minus $1 coupon at Total Wine.

Also got a four pack of Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout. $7.49 minus $1 coupon.


Headed to the midwest for the holiday. Hope to bring home beer by Three Floyds, Half Acre, Goose Island, Columbus Brewing, and The Brew Kettle.

I randomly found a few bottles of DFH's Bitches Brew at the Springfield Whole Foods on Saturday (just FYI in case you missed out on the limited run). They also have a favorite from when I lived in Richmond, Legend's Brown Ale. I was hoping to find some of the beers from this thread but the three year old claimed that looking a bottles was "boring".
