Omnipollo by Shploing!!

Russ P. is drinking a Shploing!! by Omnipollo

As long as Schploing!! is available from The Party Source, I'll never feel the need to trade for Heady Topper.

Bell's Brewery by Hopslam Ale (2018)

Russ P. is drinking a Hopslam Ale (2018) by Bell's Brewery at Higher Gravity

Well enough made (well balanced, no alcohol burn, etc.), but still overpriced & overrated. A bit bland if anything. (From 6ish.)

Brink Brewing Co by Armored Heart - Rum Barrel Aged

Russ P. is drinking an Armored Heart - Rum Barrel Aged by Brink Brewing Co

The rum helps to give it a wonderful butterscotch flavor that doesn't overwhelm the coffee notes of the base beer. From Brink's first BR!

Bottle Logic Brewing by Backwards Compatibility

Russ P. is drinking a Backwards Compatibility by Bottle Logic Brewing

Has a nice complexity that starts w/ boozy cherries, & ends w/ rich coffee & chocolate notes. I like! (4.35. Taster @ Brink bottle release.)

Clown Shoes by The Train I Ride

Russ P. is drinking The Train I Ride by Clown Shoes

My first Clown Shoes beer. All but identical to Jackie O's Grave, which is far from a bad thing!

Brink Brewing Co by Afterglow NE IPA

Russ P. is drinking an Afterglow NE IPA by Brink Brewing Co at Brink Brewing Company

Similar to, & almost the equal of, #blessed by Streetside (I'd give that a 4.67).

MadTree Brewing Company by Rubus Cacao

Russ P. is drinking a Rubus Cacao by MadTree Brewing Company

A year of aging has turned a great stout into a fabulous one. It's like the liquid version of a raspberry creme-filled gourmet chocolate.

Lagunitas Brewing Company by Willettized Coffee Stout (2017)

Russ P. is drinking a Willettized Coffee Stout (2017) by Lagunitas Brewing Company

My first beer disappointment of 2018. It hurts to say that, because I'm a huge Lagunitas fan. But this is entirely forgettable to me.

Ballast Point Brewing Company by Fathom IPA

Russ P. is drinking a Fathom IPA by Ballast Point Brewing Company

Nicely combines the crispness of a lager with the peachiness that you often find in a WC IPA. Underrated! (From 4:30ish yesterday.)

I Believe in IPA!  (Level 24) Earned the I Believe in IPA! (Level 24) badge!
Urban Artifact by Pocket Watch

Russ P. is drinking a Pocket Watch by Urban Artifact at Kroger Marketplace

Cherries & plums all day. This might be UA's best MWFT to date. (From 4ish yesterday.)

Streetside Brewery by Yellow Polka Dot Bikini

Russ P. is drinking a Yellow Polka Dot Bikini by Streetside Brewery at Streetside Brewery

And another! Like a creamy lemonade. Arguably the best beer that I had @ Streetside today. (From 2:30.)

Streetside Brewery by Cereal Milk

Russ P. is drinking a Cereal Milk by Streetside Brewery at Streetside Brewery

Like liquefied strawberry jam at first, with the blueberry coming out as you drink. Hey Mikey, I love this! (Taster in flight. From 2ish.)

Streetside Brewery by Barrel 1 - Coconut Cream Pie

Russ P. is drinking a Barrel 1 - Coconut Cream Pie by Streetside Brewery at Streetside Brewery

The taste is delicious, but the body is so disappointingly thin! This beer needs to get physical. (Taster in flight. From 2ish.)

Streetside Brewery by Little Balls of Blue

Russ P. is drinking a Little Balls of Blue by Streetside Brewery at Streetside Brewery

The one more or less forgettable Streetside beer that I had today. Good, but pales next to Whirligig. (Taster in flight. From 2ish.)

Streetside Brewery by Don't Worry Be Happy

Russ P. is drinking a Don't Worry Be Happy by Streetside Brewery at Streetside Brewery

The kiwi comes through beautifully here w/ its distinctive taste (at once tart & melony). (Taster in flight. From 2ish.)
