Troegs: Perpetual IPA, Troegenator Doublebock, Dreamweaver, Wheat, Hopback Amber

Yep. Village Pump had Nectar ($11.99/sixer) and Rye on Rye ($8.99).

"had" - sold out when i dropped by on my way home from work.  what a disappointment.

instead i picked up:
- FW Double Jack (solid IIPA, first time trying it)
- Troegs Nugget Nectar (very tasty, as always, my first of the year)
- FW Wookie Jack (i told y'all i'd be getting more)
- Avery Czar
- Van Honsebrouck Brigand (on sale for $6.99 - paging smakawhat)
- another 09.09.09 12.12.12 for the cellar (corrected, i had the 09.09.09 on my mind because i bottled my clone of that beer last night)

Had the St. Joseph's Tripel at DC Brau today.

Very nice tripel, definite improvement over the Ghouls Night Out quad they just did. Brought home a growler.

Looks like someone sold you some mediocre beer. Other than their excellent orange whip IPA, i've found all their beers to be mediocre.

not talking about the taste dude...talking about having your esophagus almost swell shut..

i've had this happen before with some beers...

for the record i really like the mad fox place...great burgers... and some of their beers are up my alley (defender american pale ale for example)
