    From last night's stop at Small City Tap House & C.L.A.G. Brewing, with my Untappd scores:

    Surly Brewing One Man Mosh Pit New England style IPA 3.75/5
    Foreign Objects Chrysalis Into Beauty DIPA 4.25/5
    Toppling Goliath King Sue New England style DIPA 4.5/5
    Sepratist Beer Project Good Good DIPA 3.50/5
    JAFB-Wooster It's Just Hops IPA 3.25/5

    I also had a couple Masthead Hollow Earth Triple NEIPAs which I had previously scored at 4.75. Just an amazing beer.

    Got to try a Foam - Distopian Dream Girl last night, a Vermont brewery I haven't had before. Really very good. 7% dry NE IPA.

    It was released on valentines day, but I have been out of town. Hoping to pick up a 6-er sometime this week.

    I finally found a place with Street Sodie on hand, the stuff is absolutely delicious. I've always considered Old National's M-43 to be the benchmark for hazy IPA's but the Sodie give's them a huge run for their money. I'm going to be very bummed if i find out this is a one-off special release in which i'm buying up whatever i can get my hands on.

    I'll give them extra credit for lifting their graphics from the old Sweetheart cup company's "Jazz" imprint found on wax paper drinking cups from the 80's (sorry, i used to stock a warehouse full of that shit back in the day).

    Iíve been looking for a beer like this since I had Georgetown Brewery Chop and SuperChop Red ale. A quite hoppy concoction with a significant malt background. This is not Killianís, but a nicer beer to celebrate St. Patís with:

    Over the last couple of years, I've found Harpoon (local to me) rather disappointing. I had an IPA at the brewery that was skunky. Maybe they hadn't cleaned the lines that day. I like cider and I find their's off-tasting without a hint of apple flavor. But I don't give up. I'll give this Craic IPA a try.

    A couple days ago, I went to the market to do battle for toilet paper and bottled water. Instead I came home with four-packs of Murphy's Irish Stout and Lord Hobo's Hobo Life.

    I had to take my wife to a doctor appointment out of town on Monday. My stock had gotten real low and I didn't have much time to shop. I got a twelve of Two-Hearted and a twelve of SN Torpedo

    With the state pretty much shutdown, I stopped by my local convenience store on my way home from work last night and they still had 6 Packs of Hopslam, at a reduced price so picked some up. Not quite as fresh as January, but it still tastes pretty damn good.

    Freshness is pretty important with hop forward beers. Some of the beers I love are still decent later on, but the wow factor is gone.

    One my fav locals is Heavy Seas Loose Cannon which is triple dry-hopped. At the brewery, the aromatics on a draft are awesome. No so much at your local, or in the bottle, but not bad if relatively young.

    Why is Buffalo Wild Wings called BW3?

    I asked a guy who was from Ohio, who was stoked that a BW3 was opening nearby and shocked that I didn't know what that was. When he told me i asked him what did BW3 stand for he stated simply, "c'mon, it's short for Buffalo Wild Wings" and I pushed, but what's the 3 stand for and he didn't have an answer. I mean, there's only two 'w'.

    They used to be called Buffalo Wild Wings & Weck (an NY style beef sandwich)

    SNL aired a video of Michigan gov Gretchen Whitmer drinking a LaBatt. Whitmer issued a statement that corrected them on her beer of choice, Michigan's best IPA.
