I just enjoyed a 22 oz New Belgium 1554, which I got at my local Kroger.

Delicious - compares very well with Young's Double Chocolate Stout.

That's my older sister's favorite beer. It's tasty.

I agree. Very smooth and delicious. A fancy beer!

I decided to splurge a bit on beer after spending a few hours at the town's new outdoor activity pool (slides, flumes, tubing river, waterfalls, etc.) with my son today. I picked up a six-pack of Stone Ruination IPA and a 750ml of Allagash Curieux, a Belgian-style tripel aged in Jim Beam barrels for 8 weeks. I felt slightly guilty since the total at the register was about $35.

When I walked into the house with the bag, my wife looked at me and said, "Did you buy beer, too?"

"Too? I kinda splurged."

Then she tells me that she splurged, too. She picked up a six-pack of Stone Ruination IPA (heh), a four-pack of Dogfish Head 90-minute IPA, and a 750ml of Chouffe Houblon Dobbelen IPA Tripel, which is a Belgian take on the imperial IPA style. The guy at the store my wife went to asked if the IPAs were for her husband. She told him IPAs were her favorite style and I enjoyed them as well, but that I usually preferred Belgian beer. This last bottle is what he recommended and I can't wait to try it.

What a haul! \:\)

I'm drinking the Chouffe now, and holy moly is it ever tasty. It's officially one of my favorite beers. Although it's more tripel than IPA, the bright hoppy influence is definitely present and a strong component of its flavor. So many layers, all so tasty.

I'm home alone at the moment and am having a hard time leaving some in the bottle for my wife when she gets home.

Fill it back with water and call it a Budweiser.

My wife just found out that Kilkenny's is not distributed in the US. Oh the humanity...

As some of you know I'm in the process of making 6 gallons of wine, ooops, don't mean to hijack the beer thread.

Ok, I'm also making 6 gallons of Coopers Australian Lager.

Unless you're fermenting the beer below 50F, you're not making lager \:\) Hope it is delicious!

I had a wonderful evening with friends a couple days ago; one of them brought about a dozen beers back from a recent trip to New England. I'll try to post the details later. But, oh, that Smuttynose!
