    Lots of bad things can happen with draft, especially with stronger beers. Try Unearthly in the bomber. Haven't had one in a while, but in my experience it has been excellent.

    Went to see the dB's at the Hideout last night. Excellent show. It's been a long time since I'd been to the Hideout. Could even remember if they had a decent selection or not. First tap handle I recognized was Three Floyds. I asked which one they were serving. They said Zombie Dust. Best music and beer pairing I've had in years. Just an outstanding show. Wish I'd been able to go back tonight.

    Bomber of Sweatwater Festive Ale. Only 4.99. Really solid dark spicy ale. At 8.7 ABV, pretty good punch too. For the price, I'd recommend. Plus it's got a wax seal like makers mark.

    This afternoon I picked up a 64oz Growler of Lazy Magnolia Southern Pecan. Just finished my first glass. Looking forward to my second.

    Had a few pints of Swamphead Darkwater followed by Cigar City Florida Cracker White Ale last night. Both were very nice.

    110K+OT Batch #5

    The first thing I've tried from Cigar City I didn't love. It's supposed to be a DIPA, but it's more of a barley wine to me. Very sweet.

    Maybe it grows on me. We'll see.

    I think it was much more of a double ipa 6 months ago. Barley wine sounds about right now.

    This was bottled 11/16/12. I picked it up at the brewery tasting room. I don't think it gets much fresher.....

    Interesting. I thought this was a one time brew from 6 months ago. Didn't realize they made a second batch. I wasn't too crazy about it myself If I recall.

    Green Flash Rayon Vert followed by Intuition I-10 West Coast IPA. Finished off the night with some home brewed IPA late hopped with Cascade, Centennial and dry hopped with Columbus. Great night drinking good beer and watching the Gator basketball team win.

    Just picked up a bomber of Hebrew Jewbiliation 16th Anniversary, 16 varieties of malt, 16 hops, 16% alcohol. This beer is a little on the dark side for me with the roasted hops, but it's got huge balls on it. Had to work up to it with some Lagunitas Hop Stoopid.
