Tonight will be a very special beer night, as I'm having 3 of my aged beers.

Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA (2 years old)

Heavy Seas Peg Leg (3 years old)

Flying Dog Double Dog (3 years old)

The Flying Dog Double Dog just won the Washington Post's tournament for best local beer. Heavy Seas had a couple beers in there, but the Loose Cannon wasn't in there. Awesome that my favorite beer won, but Loose Cannon is #2 to me. This aged Double Dog has the old school lable on it, definitely going on the mantle.

The Heavy Seas Peg Leg - age it. Amazing at 3 years old. Lost the sort of spritsy feel and weak toffee note. Became a dark chocolate malty delight. I put 2 more in the cellar from the fresh pack. The 2 year old Dogfish Head 90 lacked malt and became very grapefruity. Big flavor adjustment, but I preferred the fresh one slightly more.

Tonight its Sierra Nevada Torpedo, Heavy Seas Gold Ale, and Flying Dog Snake Dog.

I think this was brought up a bit back ... but I think Ommegang has won me over to the Saisons over the IPAs. I also like their blonde ale.

Any suggestions for other Saisons that I should try? I love Hennepin ... but would rather not spend $8 on a 24 oz. bottle every time I have a craving haha

Has to be my favorite DIPA to date I talked about it earlier in the thread for the amount of IBU (~120) it is incredibly well balanced and easy to drink. If you are a fan of IPAs you will love the Heady Topper..enjoy it is hard to comeby outside of Vermont.

So I don't want heart failure, and I've always told my girl that if craft beer had no alcohol in it, I'd still drink it. She never believed me, so I did the equivilent of Luke going to the dark side and bought a 6 pack of O'doul's Amber non-alcoholic brew. I of course covered my ass and bought a bottle of Raging B***h, can't put all my chips in to a baby's beer.

I take that back, I actually enjoy this stuff. Caramelly, toasty, nutty flavor peaks out when you breath through your nose. Definetly got to take giant swigs, and having no buzz is hilarious. That's sort of the point, to improve health. And before all you beer snobs go off on me (muhaha!), I have a bottle of Russell's Reserve 10 year old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey to go with that Raging B***h when the time is right.

Was doing some research on Zagat yesterday, and happened to find out about some local beers here in the area.

Drinking Historical Beer

Summer will be big for hopsheads when Bluejacket, a state-of-the-art brewery, bar and American restaurant from the Churchkey talents, joins the local craft brewing scene in August. It's set in a former Navy Yard building, and a mind-boggling array of equipment will enable it to turn out constantly changing, slow-maturing beers, some of them re-creations of historical styles. Prost!

Any one had Ballast Point Sculpin? I first had it out in San Diego and then a few weeks ago here in NoVA. I looked it up on BA and it scored a 100. Great beer but that score surprised me

Sweet. That's shouting distance from Nats Park, in that all-glass warehouse building  just to the east that they've been renovating for awhile.
