I'm not a huge beer drinker, but I've been drinking quite a bit of this over the holiday season thus far.

I'm sure I missed it being mentioned in this thread somewhere, but Left Hand Milk Stout Nitro is downright fantastic.

One of my favorites. How much does it go for down by you? A 4 pack in NJ sells for around $12.

It was about $14 before taxes for a 4-pack.
The place I found it (Earth Fare) also has Gubna Imperial IPA. I may check that out in the next couple of days.

Re: The Official "Great Beer" thread. Part 2; Same great taste but this time more hop

Solemn Oath "None More Black" Black Saison: 22oz on tap. Very local (to me) brewery that's coming up the ranks. This one is really weird stuff, but I liked it. Basically a stout with saison yeast and some light c-hopping. Reminds me a bit of (the superior) Allagash Black. What a great name as well.

Uinta Hop Notch: top drawer example of a West Coast IPA (even though it's from Utah). Grapefruit and mango, terrific oil extraction. Still nicely balanced with malt and sweet. I think this is up there with Racer 5. I'll definitely get this again.

On tap:
Trader Joe's "Providential" spiced Belgian ale. Another private label corked bomber from Unibroue. $6 at Trader Joes right now, along with the last few cases of the 2012 Vintage Ale. Unibroue is easily one of my favorite breweries, I love that Trader Joe's is private labeling their stuff and selling it for roughly half the price of the very similar and very awesome "Le Terrible". Get a bunch of this while you can.

Not bad, but I can honestly say my own apple pie "moonshine" tastes better.
My most recent concoction was Simply Apple juice, mulling spices, cinnamon sticks, white sugar, brown sugar, Everclear, and Pinnacle Whipped vodka.
Anybody else have a good Apple Pie recipe?

Any proportions you can share for your recipe, Tom Banjo?

I have the itch to make some.

That's the basic recipe I started with, and it's perfectly fine. I've tried the other stuff as experiments, with mixed results. It can easily get too spicy and become a thick, cloudy mess.

ETA: Or you could save the trouble and just get this at the ABC store:

I know somebody who works for Bells. Last week he was telling me how he has been drinking Hopslam right off the tap. I wanted to punch him out of pure jealousy.

Yeah, I live in kzoo, with lots of friends who work there. We are a bit spoiled (IE 10 bottles of black note, 15 bottles of wild one in my cellar). I never buy Hopslam cause anytime I want it from now until usually April/May I can just go to the Eccentric Cafe.

Also, if you want to be more jealous of the beer scene in kzoo - http://www.kalamazoobeerweek.com/

Going on right now.

Finally fired up the dedicated beer fridge in my bike room in the basement. Spent $150 at Binny's filling it to the brim with good stuff. Good beer + carbon fiber bikes + neatly arranged tools = happy Hiro.

Re: The Official "Great Beer" thread. Part 2; Same great taste but this time more hop

Finally after missing out the last 2 seasons I got my hands on a 6-pack of Hopslam yesterday. The same time I went to the new Warren's Ale House right down from where I live and they had it on tap. A great day to say the least.

Next on my to do list is check out the Solemn Oath brewery as I learned how close it is from where I work.

I've also been wanting to check out Solemn Oath. Last time I checked, they had very limiting hours of operation.

The bulk of my haul from a two-day beer store excursion. (Multiples and a few others not shown.) Yes, I like stouts.

Had a few of those before, have a few in my cellar, but jealous of the Moloko and BCBS (coffee?). And what is that with the green wax?

(Never had Biscotti Break in a bottle, but on tap it was amazing!)

Yeah, that's a Coffee BCS. The owner of the liquor store went into the back "into his personal stash" to find it for me. And Moloko is one of my favorites, I always buy as many as I can when I see it.

The green wax one is Abduction Coffee Break. Haven't had it before.

Sweet! (I wish Moloko would make it out here in bombers.) Gotta like the rating on that Abduction. Let us know how it is.

For you guys in Texas. One of my best friends has his own microbrewery in College Station (you'll find them around that CS, Bryan, Cypress area). They do tours and such. I'm not much of a beer-guy personally, but it is a pretty cool time if you are in the area and wanna see the insides of a microbrewery.

Had a New Glarus Enigma and WOW! was that great. I didn't think it was too much anything, but plenty of a lot. Much tartness, lotsa cherry, totally delicious!

Any TX folks find an extra 512 BA Pecan Porter they're interested in unloading?
