What are you drinking, right now? - Page 168
I'm visiting family in the southern part of the country so made a border run to Panamá to get some duty free alcohol. Managed to pick up about two dozen bottles of stuff ranging from good (Glenfiddich and Glenmorangie single malts) to cheap mixers. Drinking some of the cheap mixers tonight to make a rum and coke. They had some Brazilian white rum that they only sold in lots of 3 bottles for $8. The stuff is like moonshine, but it was dirt cheap so who can complain.
I picked up a 4-pack in Florida and am working my way through the first one. I don't think any beer can forever live up to the hype of being rated best in class, or justify the price this beer commands, and sells out in days. I think it's pretty damn good, and as a home brewer would still rank this among the best.
I'm a beer snob but I'm not ridiculous about it.
I was planning to compare the attributes of North Coast's Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout and the surprisingly comparable Flying Dog Gonzo Imperial Porter; however after consuming the test subjects, I find myself unable to coherently express an opinion.
I think I'd like to go to Colorado and perhaps evaluate some Blue Dream with Purple Haze and see where that gets us.

Ah, the days of my youth (considered daze, but it's an impossible pun). Some day I'll be back to a legal state, though, yes indeed.
This thread is currently at 168 pages, 5039 posts. In that time, does anyone know if Tree House Brewing's Julius has been mentioned? Just curious. I'll be making a trip to the brewery this summer (it's closer than Okemo from here).
