    Picked up a growler of White Oak Blueberry Jai Alai. Unbelievable.

    Good to know. I am currently on phase 2 of my beer break but I should pick up a couple of growlers on the way back from the gym and store them for when the sud hatch is open for business again. I don't anticipate a two month hiatus like phase 1 was.

    I'm not sure if there is any left, but its worth checking. It was the growler Tuesday special, one growler per person limit.

    No beer tonight, taking a few days off after beer overload from my trip to Portland. We had a great time and visited 7-8 different breweries and a few beer bars. On our brewery hop Sunday, we sampled over 60 beers via flights and it was amazing. I highly recommend making a trip out there and stopping by, at least, Cascade, Hair of the Dog and Breakside breweries.

    I've heard that both BA Roosevelt and BA 10-10-10 may arrive during American Craft Beer Week. They won't release it until it is tasting to their liking so of course this is tentative.

    Cool. My niece nephew are in Gainesville so it's a great excuse to do both. Perhaps a mini bottle share could be worked.

    I think I'm going to do a blind taste this weekend with KBS/BCBS/Black Note. I'll report results, should be interesting.

    Underdark is a great beer. I was fortunate enough to have some on tap Easter weekend in Jax. I can't wait for the next batch!

    That Permanent Funeral looks tasty and I'll be brewing a ZD clone shortly, love that stuff. Received a box yesterday that included FFF's Toxic Revolution, Brian Boru and In the Name of Suffering and a few other brews...

    That's a nice box.

    I had a Toxic Revolution in my box as well. 12 ZD's, 2 Funerals, 1 Toxic, 1 KBS, and 1 Dreadnaught (which didn't survive) :(

    My first Sculpin right now. Pass it up all the time. Its good, but at 3.15 a pop, I'll take a cheaper lil sumpin and jai alai all day.

    I always hear Sculpin HAS to be fresh. It has a drink by date of 7-23-13. I prefer a bottle/can date by far.

    Edit: just read on freshbeeronly that BP's enjoy by date is 120 days after bottling for beers under 10% abv, abd 1 year for beers over.

    20ish days old is pretty fresh for my sculpin.
