    This mornings breakfast was an Odd Side Ales Rye Hipster Brunch Stout along with an omelette and toast. A good way to start the day.

    I'm having a Simcoe Revenge, a single-hopped (100% Simcoe) Double IPA from Revision Brewing Co. in Sparks, NV. Bitter and twisted, as Mr. Daltrey might say. I like it.

    revving up t another double-blind beer evaluation with the wife...

    I have cold:
    Imperial Stout
    Coconut Porter
    Coffee Porter
    Brown Ale
    Smoked Porter

    I'm leaning toward one of the Porter styles for this evaluation
    Why is it whenever someone mentions an artist that was clearly progressive (yet not the Symph weenie definition of Prog) do certain people feel compelled to snort "thats not Prog" like a whiny 5th grader?

    Be sure and have some of this when it becomes available. Brewers across the country are brewing it or at least selling it, starting soon. Proceeds go to help victims of the "Camp Fire" in Paradise, California.

    I finally got to try a Founder's Breakfast Stout. Not bad at all. The coffee part of it must work, because I am still awake. So far as I know, Founder's is the only breakfast stout available in my neck of the woods.

    If you can ever get your hands on Kentucky Breakfast Stout or Canadian Breakfast Stout from Founders I am guessing you would dig it. Both are like regular Founders Breakfast Stout on steroids.

    Although I carefully peruse the craft beer section of any store that sells them (see what the demise of record stores has reduced me to?), I have yet to see either of those. Someone does not want us having a variety of breakfast stouts. There are at least two large liquor stores in another town where I have yet to look. Not today, though. I ain't going down that long, lonesome road all by myself in this snowstorm. Better to listen to Hatfield and the North and watch the flakes fall outside my window.

    Both of them can be hard to find. They only make CBS in limited quantities and only once in a while. KBS is made once a year, and lately they have been making more and more of it, but in other parts of the country I would imagine it could be hard to find as well.
