i'm about 4 minutes away from cracking open my first toppling goliath "king sue" DIPA on my lunch break. this is the big brother to "pseudo sue" which is one of my favorite pale ales of all time.

i'm about to take a drink of bud light orange. not because i want to, but because i need to know how to describe it if i want to effectively sell it.

i'm kinda gagging here. in 3...  2...

that was expectedly underwhelming. it's bud light ... with orange flavor. wait, let me rephrase that. it's a lesser version of both of those things. not heavily orange-flavored, and only the slightest bit of malty grain underneath. it's like tasting a little malt on the back of a watered-down orange soda. it's not very good at all. and i'm belching like a motherfucker, but that's probably my fault because i'm drinking it straight from the bottle. 

2/5

drank a founders kbs last night. it was good, don't get me wrong. there was some earthy, oaky, peat-moss something going on in there and that was kinda unique. but for $25 per 12oz 4-pack, i'm pretty sure i can find something slightly less interesting and buy 2x or 3x as much of it. dare i say, kbs is a bit overrated.

4/5

Over the weekend I drank Kona Brewing Co’s Kanaha beer. It’s a pretty serviceable light beer with some tropical flair to it. I enjoy Big Wave from them so Kona is one of the few brands I’ll happily drink golder beers from as opposed to the stouts and porters I usually gravitate towards.

Also had Sapporo Black which is amazing, but hard to find. Had to get it at a festival after my Total Wine stopped selling it. 

I also got the David Lynch Espresso Roast coffee over the weekend. Had it as black as midnight on a moonless night. Needless to say it was a damn good cup of coffee.

I've been drinking this Pabst APA that I found recently.

I actually kind of like it. It's definitely better than I ever thought Pabst would do. I mostly just buy it because it's cheap.

we started stocking this a few weeks ago. i agree, it's surprisingly drinkable, which is something when it's coming from pabst. 

i'm currently enjoying a couple new-to-us beers: dogfish head dragons and yum-yums, and 4 hands contact high juiced. tonight i get to try a couple we just got in from left hand: death before disco porter and juicy goodness golden ale. exciting.

we picked up cases of the dogfish head today (60, 90, 120 minute ipas) at the bar. going home to a cold 4-pack of the 120 in about half an hour. no, i won't be drinking all 4 of them (not tonight, anyways). i figure the wife will have a sip and her face will pucker up, and i'll be left to the rest of it. so i'll put two in my cellar and keep 2 in the fridge. maybe i'll let the bro-in-law have one of them too. but at $10 per 12oz bottle, it's not something i'll be taking to the community bbq to share with the domestic drinkers. i've actually never tried this beer before, but at 18% abv and OVER 9000 ibu, i'm pretty excited. might report back after drinking it, if i can still see straight.

Found some tallboys of Sapporo Black for the weekend that were great. Also have some premixed margarita stuff I've yet to dip into. 

Right now, I'm drinking some Nespresso coffee pod that's supposed to taste like cherry, but actually tastes like earning your red wings.

just received delivery of the goose 2018 BCBS this morning. we're taking part in their black friday release, so we aren't selling it just yet. but the keg is in the cooler, and there's a case of bottles waiting in there too. i most definitely didn't crack the case open three days early to take a bottle home and "sample" it tonight...

tale of the tape:
2018 bourbon county brand stout
imperial stout aged in heaven hill bourbon barrels
14.7% ABV
60 IBU
441 calories per 16.9oz bottle

verdict is in. 2018 bcbs is not the best vintage i've had, but it's pretty damn good. bottle poured a little bit flat with minimal head, but it didn't affect the flavor. first taste was chocolate and musty wood, moving to sweet malt and finally a boozy bite on the back end. maybe 2nd best i've had in the past 5 years, behind 2015. one of these days i'll be having friends over for a vertical tasting of 13-18, and we'll find out which is the best at that point. 

and now i'm drinking another chicago beer. two bros atom smasher oktoberfest was a great beer and we sold a boatload of it at the bar, but we ended up with about 8 bottles that i haven't been able to unload. so they came home with me tonight and i'll be disposing of them in the best way imaginable. added benefit, i opened up a lane in the beer cooler for southern tier 2xmas ale. this job sucks so much ass :D

diving hard into the quads tonight. started with a st bernardus abt 12, about 18 months old. delicious. second was a deschutes the stoic from 2015. also pretty good. now we're drinking la trappe quad, brewed this year. talk about banana boat. it's also the only true trappist beer we have in the lineup tonight. after this we're cracking a unibroue terrible from 2015. it's been a year or so since i've had one of them, and i'm looking forward to it.

finally found a style that both the wife and i enjoy. this could be a dangerous combination...

i was turning these little fellers out pretty hard for the bar xmas party last night. stopped long enough to take a quick pic early in the aftrnoon. it's basically a frozen pina colada, with blue curacao to give it a wintry look. rimmed with coconut flakes.
