      The chronic was a great beer.

      Orange Blossom Cream Ale....

      it was actually delicious! the aroma after I popped the cap was of freshly cut oranges and I though " this will be interesting"
      I was expecting something like a Bell's Oberon or *gasp* Blue Moon with orange. I drank it for dessert after eating enchiladas and it was really sweet and citrusy. I doubt if I could drink more than one in a sitting but, I will buy it again.

      Nice, I was debating going to the 13th Ann but was too busy.
      Lil Devil is a refreshing Belgian ale that I love drinking during the summer.

      Went to the one in Carlsbad. I wanted to go to the Session Ale Fest in San Clemente last Saturday but couldn't make it. So instead we stayed two nights in Carlsbad and stop by for some pizza and brews and went next door to the Bottle Shop as well.
      Monday night Alesmith beers were three dollars a pint and Lil'Devil pitchers were $12.00. Go to their website and during the week they have $3 pint specials.

      I also had a pint of the Coronado Orange Pale Ale. Didn't taste a hint of Orange.

      I just finished off a bottle of Stone 13th and it is a great beer! Sticky imperial red with an amazing hop profile. I have also been drinking a ton of Monks Flemish Red this summer. Perfect hot weather wild ale!

      Late August means... time for Oktoberfest biers to begin rolling out. I am drinking a St. Arnold Oktoberfest and while a bit young, its a great beer. Now if the weather would catch up with the beer styles I am moving towards then I would be in good shape.

      Well we ended up hitting Pizza Port San Celemente Friday and also today on the way home. I had a Ballast Point Fathom India Pale Lager which was very good. today I had their housemade rootbeer which was tasty too. and good pizza! I get mine sans fromage. Still probably the best pizza i've ever had.'
      back to the beer.
      MrTopher, my wife, and I went to the Stone 13th Anniversary Celebration yesterday. Wow! It was hot!!! But tons of fun and many good beers.
      Some highlights were: Stone 13th on cask with Amarillo hops. Lagunitas Little Extra Sumpin' - I was chatting with their rep and she gave me an extra free sample. The festival limits to 10.
      Brewdog Paradox - I don't even like stouts but I tried this one and its awesome!
      Lost Abbey had Angel's share on tap and I had 2 of those tasters. Super good.
      Port Summer Pale Ale - very good P.A. and refreshing
      That's about all I remember. Great beer weekend.

      If you like the Stone Russian Stout check out Brewdog Paradox, its freaking AWESOME and shouldn't be that hard to find out on the East Coast.
      Had a Lagunitas Lucky 13 on Saturday at Senior leitmotif's place, its AWESOME!

      Agreed, Paradox is excellent! I don't even like stouts!!
      Lucky 13 is the shiznit. very good. maybe better then Shark Attack. Thank you MrTopher for recommending it. BTW the lagunitas rep was cute.

      Post Road Pumpkin Ale.
      Pretty good. Not spectacular, but pretty good.

      Was just in Hawaii and had the chance to try Kona Wailua Wheat at the airport on my way home. It's a slightly hoppy wheat beer with hints of kiwi and passion fruit, extremely delicious. It really makes me wish I had tried it earlier in my trip so I could have grabbed some in bottles and shipped it home as there's no chance I'll ever find it here in NJ.

      Today was an unexpected good surprise. But bad too. Went to Widmer in Portland today. Had their black IPA and enjoyed it. Bad news is that they don't bottle it. I did have a chance to try the drifter pale and it was actually really good. I've only ever associated Widmer with their heff. It was nice to get to try a bunch of their beers.
      I've had so much beer in Portland these last few days I'm beer
      d out. Deschutes had a really good one called hop henge. There was one call homo erectus from. Brewery I forgot the name of. Good times in Portland.

      Same here. I went to Portland back in May and had a beer with every lunch and dinner for the week. Rogue was awesome. Alameda was awesome. Widmer's Hefeweizen was awesome (awesome restaurant, too).

      Maui Brewing Co. Toasted Coconut Porter.


      Damn. Coconut is my favorite fruit and porters/stouts are my favorite beer. I bet that's freakin' awesome.

      Tried this for the first time tonight, this is some DAMN good beer. I was buzzed pretty good off one bottle.


      I've had the Double Dead Guy. It's an alright beer. Not sure why the Dead Guy is the most popular Rogue beer...I actually dislike it. When I was in Portland, I went to Rogue to drink three nights in a row. Tasted over 10 of their beers. I've always been a fan of their chocolate stout. While there, I had the Hazelnut Brown Ale/Nectar and brought home a few bottles. I also tried the Brutal Bitter, Shakespeare Stout, Mom's Hef, Chipotle Ale (yuck), Mocha Porter, Yellow Snow IPA, and the XS Imperial Stout.

      Mikey, the bartender there, gave me two free beers and a free t-shirt on my birthday.

      I went to rogue's world HQ in Newport yesterday. Kinda disappointed but the distillery there is cool. Brought home a bottle of the hazlenut spice rum. Their morimoto black obi was pretty decent too.
