  1. Best (and worst) beers you've ever had

    Annnd 40 oz porterhouse
  2. Best (and worst) beers you've ever had

    Buddy had a rough/successful week at work. So we’re up at Ruth Chris drinking on ~$400 worth of his own wine.
  3. Best (and worst) beers you've ever had

    Word. We’ve got plenty of 4 Roses, no fear of running out.
  4. Best (and worst) beers you've ever had

    I forgot you’re in Hilton Head, I was going to request some Tropicalia.
  5. Best (and worst) beers you've ever had

    Bourbon and craft beer. Making alcoholism seem like a hobby.
  6. Best (and worst) beers you've ever had

    $60 at our store. We also sampled Smokehead with it side by side, wasn’t too crazy about it. The Four Roses is our store single barrel. I’m not sure what the rye content is on the regular single barrel. I can, however, send you a bottle of ours if you want—or trade you for some beer. It’s $37.99.
  7. Best (and worst) beers you've ever had

    Probably this then I’ve never had it, but heard good things. $60 is typical retail. Do try and see what their price is on 107 Antique. Do not spend more than $40 on it, and really you shouldn’t spend more than $35.

    Anyhow, as far as pointers, you should try Angel’s Envy(retails at around $40). One of my favorites for the money. Port cask finish, so it’s got a nice roundness to it and a bit of sweetness. I personally prefer sweeter bourbons(think Maker’s Mark). However, I’m starting to acquire a taste for spicier(not heat) bourbons with a higher rye content(think Knob Creek). Rye right now is really starting to take off, so expect to see more and more of them on the shelves. There’s a lot of complexity to bourbon that your palate will learn to pick up on. A lot of subtleties.

    If you can get George T Stagg for $60, you should buy it. Stagg Jr. retails for about that much. Stagg Jr. is in a squatty bottle, whereas George T should be in a tall slender bottle.
  10. Best (and worst) beers you've ever had

    Was the Stagg, Stagg Jr or George T Stagg? That Weller you bought was normal price. You shouldn’t have to pay more than $35 for 107. And honestly, $28-30 is the typical retail here. We sell it for $32 simply because we can. I think I said that we got our own barrel of it and mostly sold out in less than 24 hours. We put away a couple cases initially—we threw a case out on the shelf last night at one bottle limit and sold all but 2 bottles until this morning Owner didn’t want us showing customers where it was, as it was “hidden” in plain sight on a lower corner shelf. However, an AU fan came in and I had to nudge him in the right direction. Never had McKenna, and we don’t carry it.
  11. AUF Anglers

    Caught an ugly ol’ channel cat the other night on a Texas rigged worm. PB catfish of any species. Was about 24”, 5-7lbs.
  12. Post a picture

    If there’s one thing I truly appreciate about Memphis, it’s the sunsets.
  13. Best (and worst) beers you've ever had

    How much was the 107?
