Update: so they're a newcomer (founded 2008), but Marshall Brewing Company makes some excellent beer.  This:



Is probably the best black IPA I've ever had, and I'm a big fan of the style.  It is just delicious and hoppy and I'm picking up a couple more bombers today to bring back home for the holidays.




This is not quite as exceptional, but it's an excellent smoky porter.  Also very good.


They're out of Tulsa, so they may not be very available on the East Coast, but if you see some, I strongly encourage you to pick it up.

Firestone Wookey Jack, Black Rye Imperial IPA. Drinking it meow, and I can already feel the hangover coming. 8.3%, delicious, rye is pronounced, and complements the hops rather than fighting them. And the label is awesome.

Had this stuff in fall of 2010 and hadn't seen it since until came across it at one of the regional liquor stores on Friday night. 

Excellent stuff.  Strongly recommmend.  2 years was worth the wait to have it again.

Dogfish Head Miles Davis B*tches Brew


Did you have as much trouble as I did finding a picture that wouldn't set off the filter?   :)

I love this stuff, I (hopefully) have some waiting when I get back East for the holidays.  One of the best DFH limited runs.

If you can find the Faithfull Ale I strongly recommend that too.

My new best friend!

I had one of these Christmas Eve and another back on Thanksgiving.  A feast worthy beer.  Absolutely delicious.

Man I've had the b brew, and I think I need to try it again because it was just meh to me.

I also got a nice Lil Xmas present: 4 bombers of Lagunitas's Lil Sumpin Sumpin Wild for 4.99 a pop. I wanted to high five the beer god. It's out of season, but it's an imperial, so spoilage isn't a real concern. Those come out tomorrow.

Funny note: Utica club is $5 for 2 12ers at my local weird beer dispensary. Almost did it. Almost.

Weyerbacker Unfiltered Double Simcoe IPA (9% abv)

Served from a bottle. A wonderful beer and highly recommended for anyone who likes their beer hoppy (though it wasn't overwhelming on that front).

Formerly known as Johnny Cask before DFH decided they wanted to sell it without getting sued.  Get it - it splits the difference between their 60 and 90 minute IPAs, and adds a touch of maple syrup to smooth out the flavor.  Delicious.

Single Hop Imperial IPA (Centennial).

12oz draft pour in a tulip glass; ~10% ABV.
I liked it -- it had sort of creamy taste to it upfront that I wasn't expecting, given the high ABV, hoppy, slightly bitter aftertaste.

I'd give it 3.5 out of 5 stars.

Had a Clown Shoes 'Tramp Stamp' Belgian IPA on draft at Bison County the other day. Pretty solid, and brewed in MA, I believe...

  • You ain't the boss of the freakin' bedclothes.
Its been a banner holiday season in the IP household.

I got to try Firestone's Union Jack IPA, and I officially rip the mantle of 'Best beer I've ever had' from Racer 5, and bestow it upon the Union Jack.

If that wasn't good enough, I also got to FREAKIN TRY THE FOUNDER'S BREAKFAST STOUT!!!

This beer has been on my bucket list for years. I found it in a tiny little out of the way convenience store outside of Saranac Lake, NY on route 86.

It was extremely good. Satisfying, unique, and one I'll try again, but I'm on the fence about whether or not its a world class beer.

I also tried every beer from the two breweries in Lake Placid, they were meh.

I also tried Blue Point's IPA, Founder's porter, Speakeasy Big Daddy IPA, and a few others all on tap.

I finally re-tried the Miles Davis Batches Brew. It was still just 'okay' to me. I feel like i've betrayed all of you.

Well, you should feel that way because you have.
