Oooo. We'll probably have that sampler at the Hy-Vee. I'm checking that out tonight.


Bingo. Only it was at the old stand-by, Cyclone Liquors. Plus, I got the deal of the week: $10 for the 12-pack.

It takes a man to quote himself. I expect a full report on those 12.

Picked up some Moose Drool Pale Ale from Missoula Montana when I was in Minnesota this past weekend. Very smooth and tasty.

I have a friend here in CLT that used to live in Montana and still has friends there. He had a 12 of Moose Drool shipped to him just a couple weeks ago. Thus, I got my first sample. Tasty stuff indeed.

Erm, except that I'm pretty sure it was a Brown, not a Pale Ale. Indeed, a quick googling confirms this.

Got a large bottle of Samuel Smith Winter Welcome yesterday. I've had this beer each holiday season for the last 4 years or so. It doesn't get great scores on beeradvocate, but man I like this beer.

It was a Brown Ale, my mistake.

Moose Drool is a pretty nice brown ale from Montana. I know they used to be disc golf friendly, too...I have a Moose Drool mini that James Ledyard (disc golfer from Montana) gave me back in 1999 at Am Worlds.

I'm really impressed with all of the Christmas offerings I've had this year, including Rogue's Santa's Private Reserve, Anchor Christmas, Boulevard Nutcracker, and Sierra's Celebration Ale. Also, really impressed with the complexities in O'Dell's Isolation Ale.

Mmm, mmm! Drinking some Bell's Oberon. Very tasty. Smooth, almost sweet in your mouth, with a nice hoppy finish. Wheat beer that is not too wheaty.

I have tried the Bell's Pale, and I think the Two Hearts ( I remember the fish on the label) and I did not really like them. I'm glad I gave this one a try.

Tried to get the Rogue winter seasonal last night. Cyclone Liquors was out of it and so is the distributor.

The Oberon's a nice wheat beer, and I'm not a big wheatie fan.

The Bell's Pale is much sweeter than most pales, has a distinctive flavor, and I like it, but any hophead should love the Two Hearted Ale, which is Bell's IPA offering. Very hoppy indeed.
