    Not exactly right now but I did start my evening with a Goose Island Old Man Grumpy. Then a lot of 312 at the Dead and Co show.

    I live in CO, so some aren't avail for a lot you.
    In the fridge right now. Unfiltered Sculpin, Melvin 2x4 DIPA (fantastic, but only in W. states) & Melvin Lamda 3IPA, 13% & really, really good.

    I like Lagunitas UCIA so much I wrote this tune about it.

    All my Colorado/Wyoming peeps rave about Melvin.

    I was in Colorado a few weeks ago and my favorite brewery I went to was Westbound and Down in Idaho Springs. Relatively new.

    For IPAs Melvin really came on in a hurry. Damn, I go by Idaho Springs a lot & never heard of it. They pop up like weeds. Did you go up Mt. Evans by chance?

    I think it was about a year old, right in the little downtown of Idaho Springs. If you go tell the short haired bartender the couple on their honeymoon from Florida sent yah :)

    We were going to do Mt Evans but didn't realize how long it was and didn't have time. We did do a whole lot of other things in 8 days

    Tonight it's the Glen Goyne 10 year. I've enjoyed the 12, 15, and 18. The 12 and 18 are both special. I'm pleasantly surprised by the 10. Like it better than the 15.

    No we didn't. Was supposed to be a parents only weekend and ended up having to bring our son. So, we did not get out as much as we wanted to.

    Had dinner at Roister Friday night then just wandered around Wrigleyville and concert on Saturday.
