Anybody else been enjoying New Belgium's Folly Pack?
It's 4 specialty beers, and all of em can't miss

Ranger IPA-  serious hops, but not overwhelming
Abbey-  clovey, medium body, very drinkable
Snow Day-  strong winter ale, maybe my favorite of the group
Fat Tire-  the og standard from NB

I get one of those pretty often but I really wish they'd work the 1554 in there more frequently.  It's a solid sample pack though.

Has anybody had anything from Marshall Brewing Company?  I'm not familiar with them but I've seen good ratings so I have a couple chilling in the fridge for the game tonight.

Green Flash Le Freak.
A 10 out of 10.

TP, that one is a sentimental fav of mine.  I was in their Vista tasting room when they first broke out Le Freak back in 2006.  Filled many a growler before they relocated to Mira Mesa

I tried Ranger, and found it a little green/grassy for my taste. And I love hop-bombs. Maybe it was a bad batch.

Like FWF, I am partial to 1554. Or their Mothership Wit.

I saw the info on Julio's facebook page...I thought about heading over there but the $84.99 price tag scared me off.  I know it's considered the best, but that's a lot of cash.  I also just spent $50 there the week before, so that didn't help.  :P

I called a few places but was summarily rejected. 

However, they're on eBay for just a few hundred dollars!!  ...which is more than any beer that doesn't have a Benjamin for a label is worth to me.

When you called around, did people laugh haughtily at you and tell you that it was just as well they couldn't sell you a six pack of the best beer in the world, since you probably wouldnt know how to appreciate it anyways?

My problem with NB is I really don't like Fat Tire. Probably cuz I've had way too much of it in my life...

Speaking of stuff that is that price range,
Has anyone tried any of the whiskies that are made with beer? I know, sounds weird. I haven't had a chance to try, but there is a whiskey made with Black Bear Stout for sale at my local package store for ~$70 a bottle.

I'm not sure how much you know about distilling, but the process for making whiskey and the process for making beer, very similar, except for the distilling part. Both need to make a mash and wort (of sorts).

Actually, you can kind of do this at home, but from a totally different process:

Nah it was a bunch of Total Wines (only places that had it in the areas I'll be traveling through), so they just sounded tired of having to give the same answer, and quick to tell me every other store in 200 miles was also out.

So I've caught the tail end of a segment on the radio today that some Belgium beer goes on sale today in the states that costs $85 bucks.

Has anyone tried this yet?

Edit: Here's a link to the article. I guess it'll be a bit tough to get these.

Ah, the Westvleteren XII promo. It's on sale at my local biercafe. I'm considering it, only due to the beer's reputation as perhaps the "best in the world." I can't say I'm fond of quadrupels, though.

I might still do it, if I can find someone to split it with me.

Shoot, sorry I saw this too late, but if you're near the DC area I'll go halfsies, but the previous posts seem discouraging  :(

Bison Brewing's Organic Gingerbread Ale.

A nice holiday porter. Not a spice bomb, but subtler: ginger, cinnamon, dark malts. Not overly sweet, nice finish. I have another of these in the fridge, looking forward to a second one later this weekend. This coming from a guy who generally does not do porters.
