    I'm grabbing this on Black Friday

    -Lord Whangdoodle
    is our Imperial Chocolate Milk Stout blend aged in maple bourbon, honey bourbon, and bourbon barrels for over a year then conditioned on vanilla and cinnamon A truly unique Imperial Stout, very decadent and complex. Sappy sticky sugary sweetness, decadent chocolates filled with liqueur, baklava, some candied orange peel Perfectly balanced by the toffee finish of the amazing Whangdoodle base beer. Honey is very apparent, blends very well with the maple and bourbon Cinnamon baking spices and vanilla add more balance + complexity. Great holiday beer and standout of the Whangdoodle variants

    I just read that last month. It's truly an incredible and insightful read. Fuck ABI so hard.

    my fiancee went to Chicago with her mom a few weeks ago, she brought me back a 2016 BCBS, 2017 BCBS Coffee and Cooper Project #3 from Goose Island. AND a dope shirt. I've never been to Chicago but it's high on my list for sure

    this is the Veil, right? that whole release looks insane and wonderful. I wish there were breweries around Philly that did something a little more special for Black Friday - it seems like quite a few breweries are doing some kind of stout day on Friday.

    Forest & Main released a stout today and Tired Hands had Only Void day about a month ago (although, those beers were mostly disappointing), but no other breweries (as far as I know) are brewing any type of barrel-aged big bottle stouts for the Thanksgiving season.

    Yeah it's their Dark Daze event. Should be pretty crazy, people were lining up at 5pm Thanksgiving last year. LOL. Just worried about the people being there and drinking a bunch of huge >10% stouts.

    The Beer Store in Nashua. He also said they're one of the biggest contracts in the state for them so if NH got some he was pretty sure they'd be the store to have them

    My local liquor store has been putting their old Perennial 750 mLs (Funky Wit, Glitter & Gold, Aria) on sale for $5.99 a pop and I’m loving it. Not a brewery I buy from that often because they tend to be on the pricy side.

    It’s an interesting store in general, too. Not a huge selection, and I don’t think it attracts a large craft beer fan base judging by how long some of their rare bottles last, but they usually have something fresh and interesting to pick up. They have singles of everything they carry at a good price point. Amazingly they’ve been selling Almanac’s canned sours for a buck cheaper than you can get direct from the brewery. But while most stuff is reasonably priced, I saw CBS for $34.99 while Whole Foods across the street is selling it for $23.99 I believe.

    Yes, it’s real good and somewhat style-bending, because you don’t see 9.5% abv saisons every day. To me, it drinks more like a Belgian triple, and although it doesn’t have holiday spices or anything, it is brewed for the holidays.

    The more I think about it, the more that I don't think I'm going to go hunt down the little BCBS that lands here.

    Somehow had an easier time than ever this year with BCBS. Got four bottles of regular and one bottle of vanilla.

    The vanilla was gone by the time I got there but I grabbed a bottle of the regular. I also had a Tree House Impermanence last night and holy shit it’s the perfect dessert beer.

    If you were to get just one bottle, what would you recommend? There is a place in midtown NYC that has bottles so I may have no problem getting one.

    I haven’t tried any variants this year, but personally the vanilla was the best sounding variant to me this year. Bramble sounds intriguing too.

    Got one bottle of vanilla and put my name in for a raffle to get a bottle of the orange and regular. Apparently all the NH stores got super limited quantities so the store I was able to get the vanilla from had a one bottle total per person of the 3 types (orange, vanilla, regular).

    yikes. that's insane. wild that people line up so early for that release cause it seems like they're other beers last over a week on a regular basis.

    my friend was in the area and they grabbed it, I haven't tried it yet though.



    I was lucky enough to get a pour of 2014 Vanilla Rye yesterday and wow, what an incredible beer.

    Thanks for the rec. I went to that brewery (Bold City) and a few others in Jacksonville over the last week: Green Room, Intuition and Wicked Barley. Intuition was my clear favorite because their IPAs were MONEY and very fresh tasting. Wicked Barley had a Belgian quad called The Devil And God Are Raging Inside Me it was delicious

    I'm sure Philly people have already seen, but it seems like all of the decent beer stores are getting Sip of Sunshine as well as Super Session.
