    Good news for Boston-area beer snobs: the Bone Up tasting room in Everett opens this Saturday (8/27) as noon. I'll be in line.

    Hi Ian,

    I think they are pretty good (http://www.boneup.beer/). Went to a tasting at Kappy's about a month ago. I bought a growler of their Honey & Hops, which is what it sounds like. I have a sweet tooth, so I don't mind a little sweeter beer. If I get to the tasting room before ProgDay, I'll bring some with me.

    I got hold of Rogue's Honey Kolsch last weekend. Damn, I like this.

    I don't like everything Rogue does, but when they hit with me, they hit big. If this year's Pumpkin Patch Ale will be anything like last year's I'm buying heavily to get me all the way to Christmas.

    Their Sriracha Stout ain't bad either, though a bit spendy.

    Looking out at the cloudy day and sipping on a Expedition Stout thats had 3 years aging. Oh ma Lord! Do yourself a favor, buy some Expy, put it somewhere cool, then forget about it for a while.

    I scored a little bit of Dogfishhead's Punkin Ale this weekend. I'm liking it a bit better than I did last year. I don't know if it is me or the brew.

    Sitting outside after work and listening to some thunder in the distance. Looks like a storm coming. Sipping on a Jack's Abby Smoke & Dagger Black Lager. Very tasty!! This was given to me at ProgDay from my friend Lopez. Thanks Lou!!

    I had a Surly Fest last night, their twisted take on Oktoberfest. They add three types of rye to the mix and up the bitterness a little because Surly never pays attention to the rules. Nonetheless, it's a stellar brew.

    Had a sample of it yesterday, still one of the best. Rated 90 by Beer Advocate. I bought Schafly's Pumpkin Ale yesterday and will be opening soon. It was rated 94 by BA and is 8%.

    I still have a few of these left from the case I bought when it first came out back at the end of July. I think it is a fantastic batch this year.
    Have not tried this year’s Oktoberfest release yet although it is usually a pretty middle of the road beer. I like Oatsmobile for a lighter session beer.

    Yup. Have had a couple of The Oracle tonight. What the hell? Just one more day till the weekend!! Have a few left also. Finishing them as fresh as possible.

    The Oracle was one of those Philsunset gave me at ProgDay. At 10:45 AM it hit the spot.

    ^^^^ It's 8:45am and just opened a Prairie Artisan Ales Bomb! It's a wonderful way of having some morning "coffee".

    Can't describe it well but there it was, a Himalayan IPA. Got (embarrasing) slapped by a Yak.

    On the whole I've found Santa Cruz Mountain Brewing Company a bit pedestrian. However, they have produced a lavender IPA, which is one of the few IPAs I actually enjoy.

    I got hold of this at the end of the run last spring, but it is back. I'm pretty stoked.

    Had a great Deschutes IPA at the Red House in Kent WA (near Seattle). This place has hop vines growing all over theses trellises out front. Menu was awesome, Seafood Gumbo, Portuguese seafood stew and King Salmon.
