    Best (and worst) beers you've ever had

    Don’t stop with that one. Roughtail has several nice offerings. Hoptometrist Double IPA, 12th Round Strong Ale, and Polar Night Stout are great. They are a relatively new company, but they do good work. Almost everything they make comes in 4x16oz cans for around $9

    We didn’t go for any of the finer things on the menu, but what we had was really good. We had a crab cake appetizer, which was top notch. My wife enjoyed her burger (she orders them well-done, and the staff was attentive enough to get that right on the first try... a rarity). My Po-boy was big and tasty. Oh, I almost forgot, I found a pearl in my sandwich. If you do like fancy food, they had boudin-stuffed quail and such. I’ll definitely go back if I’m passing through again.

    We had dinner at the Abita Brewpub tonight. We made it into town too late to tour the brewery. I had two excellent beers: Bad Mother Shucker Oyster Stout, and Baltic Porter. If I’d never tasted Purple Haze, Abita would be one of my favorite companies. But the two I had tonight brought me closer to forgiving them.

    The one on the right says it’s for “American Wheat beer”. I’ll probably use it for Paulaner Salvatore and various other Dopplebocks. I’ve already learned about how breakable the IPA glasses are. I had one break last month from rubbing it too hard with a dish rag.

    It ain’t beer, but I’m pumped about these glasses. My better half found them at goodwill for $4. I checked amazon, and they go for $40. Now I can spend $36 on beer.

    My usual beer store has Son of a Baptist in cans. I found a taproom with BBB and Triple Barrel BBB. Now I just need to get my wife to drive me there.

    As usual, you guys were right. Jai Alai is legit. I don’t think I’m going to find any Snake Handler in San Antonio, but there is some Hopslam in town. That and Big Bad Baptist are next on my list.

    After spending all winter chasing rare stouts, I’m starting to enjoy IPAs again.

    This O’dell Rupture is really good. If you see it, I recommend grabbing some.

    The Kronik is labeled as “Censored”. That might ring a bell.

    Any thoughts on Jai Alai or Lagunitas Kronik? Both are available here, but I haven’t tried either.

    https://www.bonappetit.com/story/ipa-beer-styles I found this kinda educational. Talks about the difference in New England and West Coast etc. Defines dry hopped, fresh hopped, and double hopped.

    Holy mackerel! I’d put this up against BCBS or KBS any day of the week.

    Got my hands on a sixer of Brown Shugga tonight. I can’t wait to try it. Any recommendations on temperature for this one? I don’t want to make the same mistake I made with the Xocoveza.

    It got much better as it warmed up. I ended up really liking it. I’ll be more patient with the next five.
