[LN]. Ted comes and hugs me; I love drunk Ted hahah. Bottle of this gets poured out for all us industry & amigos inside, one huge toast. Ah, this and '13 Prop were the 2 best. The night was a reminder of ye olde times. Necessity🖤🍻🤘🏻
[LN]. Sifting what's left in the fridges. Luckily, I only want lagers & such, and bros only grab all the NEIPAs & pastry sours. Ironic this. Also watching these dudes straight up fight for my attention was HILARIOUS. Unyielding snide smirking.💀🍻
Final offering last night, close to closing time for TH’s final day at 94 Orchard. Details not logged but I recall impressive strength of character delivered very smoothly w no heaviness. Sweet maple n slick smoothness for this 5+YO, possibly some smoke?Earned the 99 Bottles (Level 41) badge! Earned the Beyond a Shadow of a Stout (Level 8) badge!
Top Hops 94 Orchard St. closing day 210418 — This appears to have been the last bottle of old Rasputin available at the bar, making this one even more special than usual. Very glad to have found it amidst the remaining offerings. Cheers Ted and TH 🍻
Top Hops 94 Orchard St. closing day 210418 — Thanks Ted for the special pour. Impossible to compare w any previous sampling but this could easily have been the best I’ve had, or the only at eight years. Stellar complexity rivaling any wild or aged beer.
Top Hops 94 Orchard St. closing day 210418 — This was really nice. Recall hazy from earlier checkin but this was full on breakfast juicy big on tropics, esp, pineapple and a VERY smooth resiny dankness. Warming, round, and full. Cheers Ted and Top Hops!
First of the last yesterday at Top Hops’ (first) flagship closing 210418. Memory hazy at this point but this impressed as better than expected, relatively full bodied, nice and sour, not so salty, and impressively colored. Cheers Ted & Co. 🍻
Dude sits down at a table next to me: "Wow. Who made the mistake of leaving YOU alone?! I wouldn't let you out of my sight!". Duh sir. Also, somehow I've never checked this in. Alightamong t. since we're talking about Scotland!💋👸🏻💀Earned the Wee Bit of the Scotch (Level 2) badge!
TH's final night. Obviously had to take a quick strut over to say some goodbyes! So many years on Orchard. First OMH, now this.... But oi, running into some of the boys already, so guess it's gonna be a night. 👻🤘🏻
