sweetcell - when are you going to brew a 930-themed beer, like my favorite sports blog:

nice!   dude is a baller: he makes 18 gallon batches in a 25 gallon kettle.  that's about 200 12-oz bottles (i make 5 or 6 gallons at time).  nice screenshot of the brewing software - dude is sharing his recipe, appears to be a nice all late hopping american pale ale.  i'd be interested in trying one of those.  have you had it, hoya? 

i will be brewing a tangentially 930-related beer at the end of summer: i promised to brew a IIPA/DIPA for the fantasy football league's draft party. 

or i could brew a throw-back beer, based on the aromas of the old 930 club on F street...

my next growler was of the mighty north coast brewery (the brewery to beat all breweries, state side) old rasputin which i do believe was a "nitro" thingy madoodle.  nice . . . but goes flat quick.  sometimes growlers are nice, sometimes they are a shame due to the sealing tops not doing their job.  the beer was still good.

no, I haven't tried it yet, but I hope to in March when he brings it to the blog party (internet parties!!!!).

the best part of this story is that he got his brewing gear from blindly following a kentucky derby trifecta recommendation on a college basketball blog, then made a beer for said blog.

Finally cracked open the BCBS Cherry Rye last night. The hype for this beer is totally justified. Definitely one to share amongst a few people as it's really heavy and 13.7%, but man, it's one of the best beers I've ever had.

Also tried Sierra Nevada Barrel Aged Bigfoot. I'm not a huge barleywine guy but this one was a winner.

So I managed to score a 64 oz growler of this stuff for $7. The 26 oz bottle goes for $9ish.

Very good stuff, though not sure it's worth the bottle price.

Had that the same night as the Cherry Rye and Bigfoot. Really liked it. Still want to try Rye on Rye.

Max?s Belgian beer fest in Fells Point is slated to have over 100 Belgian beers on draft this weekend. Which is ironic, because in Belgium you?re lucky to find ten beers on draft  at a top notch beer bar at any given time.

Big Hunt's got the RoR on draft as well as some other quality beverages ...like,.... Hopslam, perhaps......

Have only been there once.  Wish I could get myself up there for that but I'm heading out of town early the next day.
