Two impossible to find beers that i dearly love (both British):

Flowers Bitter
Young's Double Chocolate Stout

I believe the latter beer is plentiful around here. I'll have to give it another try (it's been many, many years since I had one). If you can find the Anderson Valley (Andersonville?) Barney Flats Oatmeal Stout up there, it is an excellent beer as well, IMO.

Young's Double chocolate is hard to find? That's a shame, it's a great philly I could buy cases of it at a moment's notice. Up here in Boston, not so sure, but I know I've seen it around.

indian buffet, sounds delicious. i would have to say i dont think i have ever had 'authentic' indian food. but, i know its supposed to be spicy, so that works well with me.

we went and ate at our favorite local mexican restaurant last night(Chilango's), and they had banners up advertising their summer beer specials. every tuesday night, all summer, is $1 dollar any beer. including corona, bohemia, carta blanca, tecate, dos equis, modelo, and pacifico. so, looks like i know where i might be spending my tuesday evenings.

BTW- they make an awesome beef quesidilla.

I'm still working on that last case of Sierra Nevada Celebration ale while the old lady takes her own sweet time finishing that keg of framboise. Someone also gave me a case of the Sam Adams winter brews (minus the Cranberry Lambic which I insisted she keep for herself). So far, the Holiday Porter and Winter Lager are real standouts - excellent beers by any measure. Probably a little older than Tom would prefer, but I notice no oxidation. If you see them clearanced, I'd grab 'em.

Anyone try anything from the Flying Dog brewery (Denver)? I got a 6-pack of their "Road Dog" Scottish Porter and it's quite good. Has a classic slightly smoky porter taste with a clean malty finish.

The label designs of all Flying Dog beers is actually a big turn off, but why judge a beer by its label...
I can explain it to you but I can't understand it for you.

yeah the Flying Dog is some good stuff. my local store carries a 12-pack sampler of their's that i get all the time as my "just sittin' around" but not quite "session" beer. they do have butt-ugly labels though, i have to agree! their "In Heat Wheat" hefeweizen is pretty tasty too.

Gratuitous bump.

I bought some single-barrell Evan Williams bourbon. I like it pretty well - it reeks of vanilla - but still think Maker's Mark is smoother, rounder, richer, nicer.

Somebody should start a Baseball thread. Or Horse Racing. Or Poker (which I do not understand as a spectator sport).

I'm thirsty.

I don't think you are the only one. Every week more of the players seem to be young ladies in scoop-cut tops, so there are probably some ratings problems happening...

Have you tried Black Maple Hill 16 Year bourbon? It's quite possibly the best liquor I've ever tasted. Wonderful aroma, fantastic finish. Great stuff.
