    I'm a member of their Reserve Society so I have a ton of their stuff. They make some killer beers. Awesome barrel aged beers and sours. They also some make some very average beers. Mischief is probably their best regular offering (their specialty is really their, well, special release stuff.) ---------- Post added October-27th-2012 at 10:28 AM ---------- You probably run across their anniversary beer. Wax dipped bottle? Fruet? It is worth the $30.

    I love the few beers I've had from Hill Farmstead. Would also love to try a lot more. Interested in a trading parker in San Diego? I don't think there is anyone in the world making IPAs like Alpine and Pizza Port. Be happy to send you some of those to test your "best brewery in the country" theory.

    Nice job on the review. I noticed you poured out the whole bottle of the aged one (sediment and all) and only part of the fresh one (no sediment). I always try to leave the sediment in the bottle. I know some people don;t. Just noticed a slight difference in the pour.

    I'm hoping to see 2 repeats of your sinature. Stann on Bisping and Vitor on Jones.

    I went to high school in PR. Great times/no good beer. I heard they have Ballast Point now though. Have to pretty much stick to ****tails there. If you feel the "when in Rome" moment you can handle a Medalla or 3. In HS we used to order Coronas, drink the neck, and then have them pour a shot of Bacardi Limon in instead of adding a lime. I call them Puerto Rican Coronas. Make sure you plug the bottle and turn it upside down so the rum doesn't sit on the top. If you make it back to Old San Juan and walk by a bar called "El Batey" pop in there for a second. I spent my Junior and Senor year of HS there. My name is on the wall and my business card is hanging from one of their lamps.

    I am going to try and put a serious dent in my 300+ bottles tonight. Invited a bunch of beer geeks over and told them all they better not bring any beer with them. My stash is out of control.

    That old Loose Cannon is going to suck. My prediction is you don't finish the glass. IPAs or built to be drank fresh. The hops will be gone and the malt bill won't be string enough to really hold it's own after that long.

    That is too bad. Even more surprising that he wasn't subbed out with a yellow in the books. Do you watch a lot of Roma? If you do I'd like to nominate you for weekly Bradley updates. TIA.

    Bradley went 90 for Roma today despite getting a yellow in the 12th. He rewarded his new team with an assit to tie the game in injury time. Great long pass and amazing finish by Lopez http://youtu.be/kvN1keV9GRw?t=5m41s

    I just always hear it called "Pizza Port Bottleshop" or "Carlsbad Bottleshop". Pretty sure Pizza Port owns it.

    Firestone Walker is in Paso Robles. North of LA. DBA is a great beer though as is almost anything else they brew. You should be able to find their stuff in DMV. That little bottle shop you mentioned is really cool. The Carslbad Pizza Port is one of the most award winning brewpubs in the country. They also run festivals in that back area. Always good times. "Pizza Port" is a local treasure. Great business and great story. A brother and sister wanted to open a pizza shop that made their own beer. They hired a guy to be brewmaster and opened Pizza Port in Solana Beach (North County San Diego). :time-lapse: Some guy who just started a brewery comes in their little pace with a sample beer and asks if they'd serve his little brewery's beers. They like the beer and decide to be the first place to put Stone Pale Ale on tap. :time-lapse: Pizza Port really starts taking off. They open another couple locations and decide they can branch a brewery operation off from the brewpub business. Meanwhile across town.... Stone has gotten so big they need a bigger brewhouse, so they sell their small one to the Pizza Port people. The Port people give the keys to their first brewmaster, Tomme Aurther, and Port/LostAbbey is born. Port/Lost Abbey is now run as a separate business than the Pizza Port locations which each have their own brewmaster and are draft only brew pubs (for now. Plans are in the works to start canning Pizza Port beers). On a side note, the newest Pizza Port is two years old and a few blocks from me and you can find me there 3+ times a week.

    Helsingborg-Celtic Champions League playoff round kicking off in a few minutes. If you need an excuse to watch US National Bodoya in the starting 11.

    I haven't tried everything of theirs as they've ben hit and miss with me. Really like their Imperial Stout "Velvet Glove" Still need to head up that way and check out the brewery. What else did you like while you were out here?

    If you Hop Heads get the New Belgium "Lips of Faith" Series beers, go seek this one out. *Action figure and glass sold separately The brewery they made this with, Alpine, makes the best IPAs on the planet, and it isn't even close. This is a decent representation of what they bring to the table with New Belgium putting a twist on it.

    That is how it works in a muddled division sometimes. Better than the champ just taking a 9-12 month break. And Machida may have only won once wince the loss, but he is a former champ. That counts for something.

    He was the only guy to win a round against him. He get caught with a vicious elbow in the 2nd and then he was done. He is a former champ who was also considered unstoppable not that long ago. He deserves the shot as much as anyway. Couture domintaed Liddel in their first fight, but Chuck still got a rematch and he KO'd Randy in it. Rematches are part of your gig if you are on a championship run this days. And to qoute his PPV numbers? Give me a break, Pretty Boy. Rashad was right. This drunk driving DBag is a phony.

    If you love whiskey and are looking for a non-traditional taste, try a Bourbon Barrel beer. If you are in DMV look for Williamsburg Bourbon Barrel Porter or Barrel Aged Gonzo. Both fantastic. CuClaw makes some too, but they have been hit and miss with me. I can give the two I mentioned my personal guarantee. ---------- Post added August-2nd-2012 at 11:36 PM ---------- Surprisingly not a tough call at all for me. Alpine Nelson. Nothing like it. Incredible. ---------- Post added August-2nd-2012 at 11:51 PM ---------- Read once that Stouts have an emphasis on roasted barley and Porter on *chocolate malt. Generally speaking, porters don't have any roasted barley (stouts do use chocolate malt though). They are smoother and a little easier to drink because of this. Stouts use heavy roasted malt so there is more of a "coffee" flavor going on. *"chocolate" refers to the color of the malt. It is roasted less than roasted barley so it has a chocolate brown appearance opposed to a roasted black appearance. Like double said, "Imperial" generally means an almost double version of the style. More malt/hops depending on the style. While we're talking differences in styles... Foreign Stout is very like on bitterness/hops while American Stout means there's some hops in there. Same with Englich Barley Wine vs. American barley Wine. American version is always more bitter and hoppy. Also: DIPA=IIPA=Imperial IPA. Same thing.

    Really liked it right at the release. It has gotten a touch maltier and boozier since. Really heavy on the citra hops. That with the malt give it a juicy kind of flavor. Can't wait for their anniversary Rye IPA
