Broke out the good stuff last night: Three Floyds Dreadnaught and Mikkeller Beer Geek Breakfast (Bourbon Edition). Held onto the Dreadnaught a little too long as it lost a little bit of its hoppiness. The Mikkeller had a nice, smooth finish.

yup - had some - very good - sweet but good

On tap today at Big Hunt, apparently.

Stumbled into some of this at Rick's the other night while picking up the Better Half. 

dang! you got your hands on better half? My wife went to rodmans specially during the day yesterday but they sold out their entire allocation an hour after putting it on the shelf

Perfect Pour says their wholesaler is arranging deliveries and it will be on their floor next week.

It's already out there so I suspect some local shops will have it this week.

No, you want to drink that one asap.

Anybody know if there will be a second round of Nugget Nectar? Definitely want to get some but i still have 12 L. Sucks, four Hopslams, and three Double Troubles to drink!

You have some time.  NN hung around a pretty long time last year.  It's not like certain brands that are gone as soon as they arrive.

Yeah, but i'm wondering if there's going to be a second batch. If I wait and buy in late March or whenever, I want some that's fresh, not some that's been sitting on the shelf for a month.
