My Whole Foods beer guy hooked me up again. It's always fun to ask him "What's not on the shelves?". He returned from the back with a bottle of the Russian River/Sierra Nevada collaboration Brux. I'm debating whether or not to drink it now and buy another to age. History indicates that I will almost certainly consume it sooner than later.

Good news for the non-West Coast beer aficionado, too. This brew will be shipped via Sierra Nevada's distribution network, thus a far higher probability that it ends up in Pittsburgh.

this week's bottle



sweet caramel/toffee entry with a slightly astringent tequila-like finish. the addition of water makes it even more sweeter. i guess the whole blue-corn thing is unique and on the whole it's tasty stuff but i'm glad this bottle was a gift.

Waco of all places. the True Blue is the cask aged version of the Baby Blue - from what i hear the Baby Blue is considered one of the best un-aged corn whiskeys.

Pumpkin beers are out already? This summer went by way too quickly.

I'm hoping some of Great Lakes Pumpkin Ale makes it's way up to State College. Definitely want to try it.

Picking up a case of 120min today. Should go great with my case of Westvleteren12 and 40 bottles of KBS.

From the Great Lakes Website, the pumpkin ale is only "available" at their brewery on tap. However, I've had it on tap in Pittsburgh(Oakland) a few years ago, so a few kegs must make their way around. It was definitely one of my favorite pumpkin beers, enough that I might try and take a trip up to their brewery when it's out this year.

I saw some Oktoberfest and Pumpkin Beers in the Settler's Ridge Giant Eagle, no Pumking or Dogfishhead though.

Gigantic and Three Floyds released a collaboration beer called "Axes of Evil". Essentially a very citrusy hopped Americanized version of an English IPA. Gigantic is new and has only released three of four beers, but they're doing a kick ass job so far.

You need to get your hands on some Southern Tier Pumking. Best in the game.

I live within walking distance to the brewery so I am a happy man in the fall through winter.

Pumking/Nugget Nectar seem to be priority 1 and 2 around here. Another great ST would be Gemini. While Troegs just starting releasing Perpetual IPA year around. They changed up the recipe this year and it is even better. Same with Hoptimum for Sierra Nevada. They also altered the recipe and it is very good.

Still have one Westy waiting for a rainy day. But I haven't been able to stock up like I'd like for a few years now. Might be grabbing a case of Pumking if I find one this year.

I had the Troegs Perpetual a few weeks ago. Pretty solid.

Well that bums me out some. I've heard good things about it.


I've had Southern Tiers Pumpking but I actually prefer DFH's Punkin Ale. I know their Indian Brown Ale is produced year round, but I always get a big craving for it around this time of year too.

Maker's Mark is gross.

Ha, I am pretty much the opposite on that one. I could bathe in Maker's Mark.

Get Gosling's instead, cheaper and better IMO.

And I completely agree with this, I always have a bottle of Maker's in the house. Join their mailing list, they send nice, free stuff yearly. They sent me a trey for ice spheres and the year before was gift bags and tissue paper. They also put your name on a barrel and you can taste it during the aging process if your in their area. All a very good deal for free...
