    Made it to my parents and enjoying a little bit of wine. Mom loves sweet wines so she’s got some sort of strawberry Moscato. The cab I had was ok. It was $11 at the grocery store. It did its job.

    Christmas Party yesterday. M's cousin has good taste. He bought some 3 Floyds , which is probably the most overhyped and overpriced beer in the Chicagoland area. But it is...

    Gumballhead (5.6%; 4.5 sips)
    [​IMG]

    Zombie Dust (6.2%; 4.25 sips)

    Also another classic Chicago IPA

    Revolution Anti-Hero (6.7%; 4 sips)

    [​IMG]

    Later on had a pretty solid beer from the area

    Hailstorm's Vlad Russian Imperial Stout (10.6%; 4.5 sips) Cool can art too.

    Chardonnay at the zoo to see the Christmas lights and the cashier needed to announce “Just so you know, you’re only allowed one more glass.”

    I just got cut off at the zoo.

    (I had 2. Total. Announcement was made after I paid for the second.)

    St Arnold’s Cut With Bread Pudding. Been cellared for a year. I get the cinnamon notes. It’s average to above average. Happy New Years everyone!

    First "Brut IPA" ever. From 2nd Shift and Transient Ales, which are good breweries. Not too impressed with this though. Very dry. I guess I don't want a champagne like beer (5.9%; 3.5 sips)

    Drinking some great beers tonight in one of my Christmas presents.


    Toppling Goliath King Sue(7.8%; 4.75 sips)

    On my Untappd "wish list" since 7/11/16. Finally got her. Pricey ($19/4 pints), but the taste matches the price and hype. Hoppy, juicy pineapple. Perfect bite.

    [​IMG]

    Toppling Goliath Sosus (7.8%; 5 sips)

    Hoppy, juicy, and smoother than King Sue! Screw it, this is my type. FIVE! Thx Binny's employee for talking me into it! But in the future I would buy their Pompeii (6.2%; 4.75 sips) for value.

    [​IMG]

    Lagunitas Undercover Shutdown Ale (9.7%; 4.75 sips)

    Winter go-to. Such a great strong ale for a great price ($10/6 pack)! A strong brown ale that's ultra smooth.

    Looks like I gotta get to Binny's for some TG. Loaded up on Zombie Dust over the holidays - local grocery stores were doing $9.99 six packs, fresh too.

    Dunno about your choice of glassware though. Haha

    Flamingos are basically a running joke for us.

    Yeah, been impressed with a lot of TG's stuff. King Sue won't last though. I've on and off looked for 2.5 years. Untappd tipped me off. "Untappd Verified Venues" in Chicagoland started to say they had it and I had my app set to notify me when the beer was available. Called binny's to make sure they still had it. There were 8 4 packs on the shelf (limit 1 per customer). Dunno if more were in the back. "The Open Bottle" in Tinley Park also got some Friday afternoon. It's already gone according to Untappd. :(

    And $10 for Zombie Dust? Wow. Never seen it that low. It's bordering on a pricing error!

    Getting ready for Cowboys v Rams. Flipping between Colts v Chiefs and LSU v Arky basketball. While sipping on a Parish Our Cake is A Lie which is a reference that beer nerds that are actual nerds will get.

    Watching football. This is pretty solid but also $8-9 a can. Yikes!

    Revolution Café Deth (14.8%; 4.75 sips)

    Bit boozy at first. But great taste once you get used to it. Nice little barrel like sourness and very smooth otherwise.
