I was at a place in Davenport on Saturday that had it on draft. I'm not sure what year it was and didn't ask because it's not really my thing, but it was ten bucks which I thought was pretty good.


Founders CBS?



No, Goose Bourbon County. I thought that's what you guys were talking about.

$10 for a snifter isn't too bad. I think they were $12 at John's in Winfield.

Who would order that shitty New Belgium beer over BCBS?

I didn't think it was that common to have the barrel-aged stuff as a regular product on draft. I usually see bars making a big deal out of it. Like, "TUESDAY! We're tapping a keg of Deth By Cherries!"

Somebody who doesn't like good beer is more like it. And that's fine, but nobody cares about a Miller Lite drinker's opinion of overrated beers.

If I listed overrated beers, MANY from New Belgium would be on the list.

Barrel-Aged drafts are becoming more common as these breweries begin to ramp up production (which can obviously take years). Goose Island has an entire warehouse on Sacramento with barrels stacked floor to ceiling. This has been probably been the easiest year to find Bourbon County in a long time.

No doubt on the regular BCBS. I saw several cases at a store today. The variants are becoming harder to get. I was 20th in line at Binny's, and I didn't get a Reserve or a Northwoods. It is getting to the point of not being worth waiting in line if I can't get them all. I can't believe that a Binny's that big only got one case of those.


You saw what they were going for at John's. They were charging $80 for a bottle of 2017 Prop. Had I known that, I would have brought mine, and tried to sell it once theirs were gone.

I was at John's on Monday night and asked the bartender if they had any of the prop bottles left. He said they sold out of them on the Saturday after Black Friday. :lol: :lol:

You could probably sell that bottle of prop on Craigslist for $100.

I didn't find the Reserve much different than regular BCBS. The difference in price is strictly scarcity rather than quality. Prop, on the other hand, that's some good shit.

Haven't tried on tap or cracked open my Northwoods yet.

The only leg work I am doing, is using my legs to carry the box to the basement.

Somebody opened a bottle at John's. I got to try some. Tons of blueberries.

No way. They've must've been jacked. I'm going to leave mine unopened. Opening it is too much work.

Walked into a random grocery store out here in middle of nowhere and they had a display of BCBS. Several cases. In past years I would have been surprised to see it in one of the specialty liquor stores but this is just a crappy store with a tiny beer area.

Stumbled across a Douple IPA from Victory called Dirt Wolf. I like Hop Devil so I'll give this one a chance.

Great Lakes is nicknamed "Christmas Crack" for a reason. Damn tasty stuff.

I had some of Alter's "King's Blood" today, their Balaton cherry-wheat aged for four or five months in cabernet barrels. I ended up buying two 22oz bottles, one for a gift.

I saw three varieties of Alter at Binny's in Naperville yesterday. I grabbed a sixer of Hopular Kid.

Watched part of the Bears game at the Mars Cheese Castle in Kenosha. They have a brand new bar in there with some nice
beers on tap. Had a few of the Toppling Goliath Pompeii IPA which was delicious. Picked up a bomber of their Hopsmack IIPA
for when I got home. That was also delicious. Literally looks like you are drinking Orange Juice.

went on a little christmas shopping spree at binnys the other day. cracked open throughout the week/weekend:
xocoveza, ten fiddy, old rasputin, deth's tar, backwards bastard and founders imperial porter.

deth's tar is good but pricey. i want to stop by revolution tap room and try deth by cherries.

xocoveza was really interesting. by itself with clean palate the coffee pops. drank with dinner (chicken curry) and the beer transformed into milk chocolate.


ten fiddy will always have a special place in my taste buds. love that beer. wish it wasn't so damn expensive.

I was very underwhelmed by the Barrel Aged Ten Fiddy. For the price I would consider it average at best.

ya, i had it on tap last year at kaiser tiger. i didn't really detect anything different.

i'll just stick with a 4-pack of regular ten fiddy once or twice a winter/fall.

Really been digging Baderbrau's South Side Pride. It's probably my favorite Chicago area lager. It's maybe a touch hoppier than a traditional German Helles, but it just finished in a really nice clean way.
