    Artisan Farmhouse Beers From The New Braunfels Brewing Co.

    Black Fury

    6.2%

    Very complex and the first sip will cause puckering.

    That sounds very interesting, T. I’d drink that one in a heartbeat. I also had a really good wild ale today. This was aged in oak barrels and fermented on grapes. Very, very good. :cheers:

    Hey OGW! I'm not really a scotch person so I would like to get your thought on this comment I found in a scotch thread on another board.

    "If you want one that will put hair on your hair then I like Lagavulin 16. It tastes like an unwashed kilt that somebody wore while swimming off the coast of Islay then dried near a peat fire (lots of funk, hints of salty sea air, and good smoke)."

    We had an interesting event today in the beer world.

    "Anheuser-Busch Inbev NV will buy the rest of Craft Brew Alliance that it does not own in a deal valuing the Portland-based brewing company at about $321 million, the two companies said on Monday.

    The deal is a reversal in stance by the world's largest brewer, which owns 31.2% stake in Craft Brew and had said in August it would not buy out the company."

    These guys make the Kona and Redhook brands among a few others.

    I was trading today and looking at some call options in this stock, but declined because AB had already said they were not buying them out.

    It appears someone has been lying to me...:p

    I shall console myself with a nice milk stout.

    '17 is much more "smooth" than '18 at the moment. Both are still amazing!

    I cannot wait for Goose Island Prop Day 2019!

    Good to know that extra year of aging made a positive difference. I’m with you, looking forward to the upcoming release. Hope to get some!

    Whisky & Cabernet Cask Imperial Stout

    12.5%

    I am impressed.
    This is a damn fine beer.
    Great flavor and balance.

    I bought a six pack and it contains three different beers. I am now really looking forward to trying the other two beers!

    I send great beer love to my Homies. :cheers:

    If any of you degenerates can get your hands on Odd Side Deleterious, buy it! It be good. Also got my hands on a bunch of CBS today along with more Perrin's Reserve. I'm building quite a stock but I can't compete with T's or tj's inventory.
