Untapped is another social beer app. I'm not sure if it is on iOS, but it is on Android. I tend to use it when I'm at festivals if I remember it. That is till I'm to drunk to use it. The app is better than the site because you can put the points at half and not a full point unlike the site that is just 1 out of 5.

Yeah Untapped is a nice little app. I like to use it to keep tabs of all the new beers I try and for when im out looking for new beers Ive yet too try.

Went to a local pub that was having a Great Lakes Brewing launch event last night. Tried out their Edmund Fitzgerald Porter and it was damn good. Really nice coffee taste too it. Picked up a six pack of their ipa today along with a Founders Doom and their Double Trouble and a Lagunitas Cappuccino Stout.

That's the clone recipe I just brewed - a week or two and I'll be trying one.

I haven't had anything too exciting lately. Southern Tier Eurotrash Pils - decent I suppose. Also picked up a case of local brew from Costco - Good People pale ale (in cans) - real easy drinking hoppy pale ale - having one right now. Been drinking bourbon and wine a bit more than beer lately though.

Had a bottle of this over the weekend. Peach is subtle and kind of lessens the hop flavor, especially since it is an Imperial IPA. Either way I enjoyed it and will probably pick up another bottle :)

^ I just put that on my next to try list. Sounds good.

Also, has anybody ever been to Three Floyd's Dark Lord day (or even tried Dark Lord)? I was in Hammond this weekend and wanted to stop by the brewery, but I forgot it was Dark Lord day. :( I'm thinking about trying to get tickets next year. It seems like a fun event.

Bustin' out an oldie tonight! 2007 Jolly Pumpkin Noel de Calabaza Oak Aged Belgian strong dark (batch 331). 9% abv. No lack of carbonation in this bad boy - crazy head on it every pour! Very smooth, creamy mouthfeel though. Typical banana (and some plum) fruitiness. A bit dry. Nutty/bready-ness at the front. No alcohol taste at all. This thing aged nicely. Very easy drinking beer.

We opened it for a special occasion - my wife is pregnant! It will be our second - we have a 2 1/2 year old daughter.

Access - I've never been to DLD nor had a Dark Lord but it's sort of kind of on my bucket list. That and Pliney the Younger and maybe Hunahpu Day at Cigar City Brewery. Maybe one day.

Congrats on the news bordjon.

Never been to Dark Lord day either but going by the pics Ive seen on instagram, it looks like a blast. Definitely something I wanna attend someday.

Had the Stone Drink By the other day. Really enjoyed it. Also had a Tripel Horse by River Horse Brew which is always excellent.

Anyone try out Yeti? It is a really dark stout and has full flavor! Also had a try of a local breweries taste favorite, which is a banana hef.

Both were great and of course the Yeti was very strong.

Our governor just signed our homebrew bill in to law! Sure - we are the 50th state to legalize homebrew but it's legal here now! (well - technically - Mississippi's law won't go in to effect until July 1 so it'll be legal here before there...)

Had some good stuff the past week or so.

Finally got to try Founders Kentucky Breakfast Stout randomly. Was having brunch last saturday and the place was having a Kentucky Derby Special and guess they had saved a keg of KBS for that. Damn good, definitely lived up to the hype.

Sam Adams Grumpy Monk--pretty solid take on a Belgian-style pale ale.

Sam Adams Stony Brook Red--they call it a Belgian style red, but I'd liken it more to a Flemish sour. Pretty good.

Other than that, just been pounding regular staples like Dales Pale Ale, Stone IPA and Terrapin Hopsecutioner.

My lady and I put away 3 pitchers of PBR over the weekend while playing shuffleboard. Haven't had it in a while, and it wasn't too bad. . .$6 a pitcher means it was a cheap night. Choices were Miller Lite, Bud Light, or PBR, so I let her decide. Bud Light is super skunky swill and I detest it, Miller Lite is tolerable at its best, horrid at its worst. Bud Light with Lime isn't too bad though. . .Surprisingly.

Beer of choice at the moment is Sol, imported from Mexico, with some lime. It's like Mexican Corona AKA better than shitty US Corona. Typically I pick up Sam Adams Boston Lager because it's easy to find here. I'd drink Newcastle more often if it wasn't $9 a six pack.

I like how this one black guy manager at my nearest KFC rejected the chicken and told the employees to make me some new chicken. He understood how us black folks like our friend chicken fresh and not hard.


I love me some fried food. I eat friend food all the time and I'm still super skinny. I can eat all the friend chicken and other unhealthy foods never getting fat.:D

I don't mind shelling out a little more when it comes to beer. Ive spent more then 9 dollars on a four pack of beer, but mind you I tend not to drink the whole thing in one night. I like to save a bottle or two and let my stash of beer stack up so I dont have to go beer shopping so often(which is a lie cause I still do every week:razz:).

Which brings me to this question? When on a budget, whats you're go to cheap beer? I personally tend to go with Yuengling black n tan, Saranac IPA, or a Stone bomber.

I don't really drink any cheap beer these days. Even Sam Adams, Sierra Nevada etc. that are my "buy if they don't have anything better" beers are $8.99+ a six pack usually.

I mostly buy things that are right around $10 a six pack, be it Stone IPA, Dale's Pale Ale or some local beers from Sweetwater or Terrapin, or trying something new.

Just not much I like under that, and I don't often buy things that are more than that price since there is so much I love at the $9-10 a six pack price point.

For trying new things these days I more often go for growlers. Often pricier than that, but draft is the way to try new stuff IMO.

Just had a Left Hand Nitro milk stout for the first time - not bad at all! And of course - fun to pour!

I don't really do budget beers exactly - but I do buy them on sale or in bulk sometimes. For instance, today a local grocery store put some beer on sale for craft beer week. I picked up a couple local sixers (cans) for 7.99. Good People coffee oatmeal stout and Straight to Ale Monkeynaught IPA. Regularly 8.99. They also had all the Oskar Blues sixers for 7.99 which is a good deal as well. (Can't remember the other stuff they had on sale.) I also picked up a case of local brew a few weeks ago - Good People Pale Ale - at Costco for 30 bucks - which is a six dollar savings off of regular price of their sixers. Which I'm drinking right now (after the nitro stout.)

I got a 12 pack sampler of Leinenkugels Shandy stuff. It comes with 4 Lemon Berry, 4 Orange and 4 Summer. They're all pretty decent and for $10 it's a nice buy. These would be pretty nice to drink on a hot summer day and they go down real smooth.

While anything Sierra Nevada is a win, I've been enjoying Victory as my go-to brew for a while now, especially Prima Pils and recently, Summer Love. Doesn't hurt that I live near the brewery, which also serves great food.

Honorable mention to Golden Monkey and Stormking Stout.

Took a trip to Nashville this past weekend and picked up a few things. I'm having a 2013 Sierra Nevada Southern Hemisphere Harvest ale and it's really awesome. I sort of remember last years not really blowing me away but this one is great for whatever reason. These New Zealand hops are nice! (I'm really not trying to sound like a goofy beer geek here...) Maybe also I'm excited because the freakin' bomber was only 4.99 on special. I don't remember the Harvest being that cheap. Also picked up a sixer of that New Belgium Rolle Bolle - nice, easy drinking beer for sure. Yazoo Sue (Imperial Smoked Porter) bomber for 4.99! Some sublimely self-righteous and some oaked arrogant bastard since we don't get stone here (yet!). And a 750 of some Lexington bourbon.

Picked up a six of Caldera IPA the other day and have had two so far. Really nice, complex beer but I'm not sure it's worthy of the 12.99 price tag. Maybe.

 

My homebrew porter is finally coming in to it's own and is pretty darn solid!

Harpoon's Rye IPA is petty tasty.  Been on a rye beer kick lately, and that's probably the best one I've had thus far as I'd put it a bit above the Sweetwater Lowryder and Sierra Nevada Ruthless Rye.  Didn't care for Terrapins, and the one in the Sam Adams Summer Mix pack is just all right.

 

Rogue's Roguenbier Rye Ale was pretty solid as well--but very different as its a german rye ale and not an IPA, so a lot maltier/sweeter than the ones above.

Had a wonderful evening last night with a few Yuengling traditional lagers.  My absolute favorite beer.  Fun to party with, fun to socialize with, fun to casually drink with.


Here's to a great year of gaming in 2014   :beer:

Brewing a DFH 60 min clone right now. Man brewing beer smells so good!

 

Got to have some Seeing Double IPA from Foothills the other night for the first time in a few years. A friend brought some back from his Asheville trip. Excellent beer. He said he also brought a People's Porter back for me but forgot to bring it that night.

Only new thing I've had lately was Magic Hat's Ticket to Rye last night.  One of the better Rye IPAs I've had so far.  More rye bite and hoppier than most, and higher ABV than most at 7.1%.

 

Otherwise, just been drinking favorites lately.  Did have Sam Adams in a can for the first time.  Pretty solid assuming you like the Boston Lager.  Tastes fine straight out of the can, whereas a lot of canned microbrews (21st Amendment, Oskar Blues etc. I much prefer pouring into a glass).

Nothing too adventurous lately. Had a Sierra Nevada Hoptimum and a Double Dragonfly IPA (Upland) over the weekend. Also had the Goose Island Sofie which I REALLY liked. Other than that, been drinking the usuals. Managed to score some Gumballhead last night though, so that was a treat. :)

Guy at work gave me his beer brewing equipment. It's just a random box full of crap, so I've got a lot of learning to do. :p Thinking about taking some time this Saturday to sit down and figure most of it out. There's a place nearby called Great Fermentations that has all of the supplies I need, so I'll probably be asking for plenty of advice. I'll probably get set up this weekend and do my first brew next weekend, but we'll see. I'll let you know how it goes.

 

Also, grabbed some good stuff today. Gumballhead and Zombie Dust are in the vault, and I grabbed a Sierra Nevada variety pack. Came with their IPA, their Black IPA and their Imperial Red Ale. The Red Ale is delicious so far. I'd recommend it to anybody who likes Sierra Nevada.
