i love the fact that when you live in the country like i do, you sometimes go to country stores to buy a quick six pack of beer on the way home.  they only ever have the classic american shite mighty three (bud / coors / miller) and one other type of 'fancy' beer, "for the stuck ups and queers."  well just today it was heineken, and they were charging almost nine dollars for it.  bastards.  heineken isn't that bad in a pinch.

I've been in San Diego all week, and checked every store for Pliny. All out. They're getting the next shipment tomorrow, hours after I fly home.

I did have it on draft. Both my friend and I though it lost in a side by side match with Sculpin.

I've never had Sculpin, but I've been drinking Heady Topper for the past month and I'm going to have to give a slight edge to Pliny... I wish I had a fresh hopslam to compare it to.

had pliny, sculpin, and heady topper recently. all are so amazing. agree though, heady topper gets the nod.

had a stone ruination 10th anniversary last night on draft.  i don't hesitate in saying that's the best fucking IIPA i've ever had.

One could do far worse.  It's better out of a can, methinks.

had that the same day i had sculpin and pliny. Best day of my beer drinking life. :)

Alesmith Speedway Stout wasn't too shabby either.

Actually, the day that i went to the tasting rooms of Ballast Point, Alpine, Alesmith, Green Flash, and Port/Lost Abbey maybe have been tops. Sure made it tough to get up and run eight mils the next morning.

Thinking about it. Would love it if they had four ounce sampler flights of each beer. Too bad Bolt Cutter isn't out yet.

So if my wife and I each do a flight of four, making sure we don't repeat a beer, we still need to skip four beers.

Which four should we skip?

Thanks

I've actually had them all except Better Half.

Wife's cousin lives in Gran Rapids, about 2.5 hours from her parents. May have to go to the nrewery sometime!

Ratebeer has them in this order. Might go with the top 9, minus a KBS. Might sub Centenial for DT, since a kep of DT in August has probably been sitting around for awhile.

Really like the Red Rye, token lower abv beer, along with Porter. Can't skip that!

1.       KBS 2011/2012
3.       Imperial Stout
4.       Porter
5.       Double Trouble
6.       Backwoods Bastard
7.       Devil Dancer
8.       Better Half
9.       Red Rye
10.   Centennial
11.   Curmudgeon
12.   Dirty Bastard
