    You drive, I buy lunch. Just make sure James puts some aside for you. It'll be dribbling in and he has only six bottles in inventory at the moment. Or I can have him save it in my stash as he replenishes stock with others' rejects.

    I’m still a fan of IPAs. Some of the flavors and names have certainly gotten silly over time but choice is a good thing IMO. I’m surprised they have become as popular as they are compared to a time when very few Americans were even interested in trying them.

    A good friend of my son is a brewing instructor at KVCC. He says the hardest beers to brew well are light beers like Pilsner. I think you can hide a lot of sins in a hoppy bold flavored mix found in many IPAs, backing your theory.

    Imperial stout with vanilla and barrel aged maple syrup. Sweet, smooth, lots of vanilla!

    My local beverage store got some Boulevard 30th Anniversary Ale that was wonderful. I asked him to investigate getting other Boulevard brews and none were available to him. They certainly have several interesting offerings and it looks like you got one of them. Cheers.

    Barrel aged Imperial stout with chocolate, cinnamon and vanilla. Last year's brew, still has cinnamon, little chocolate and vanilla left. Was amazing fresh.

    I’ve thought about it, but every time I do, I realize that he’s a true inspiration. :D

    Not being able to access the beers he posts is frustrating to both me and James. BAN HIM!

    Then again, I have a helluva good supply of BCS and WWS so I can drown my sorrows. Hail to tj!
