Stone Xocoveza Mocha Stout - Really enjoyed this. My favorite of the Stone collaborations over the past few years by quite a wide margin.

Founders Breakfast Stout - I took 2013 off FBS because I still had 2012 bottles left over. This year’s version is tasting great. The 1st 4-pack went very quickly so I’ll be going back for more.

Hill Farmstead Anna & Grassroots Sankt Hans - Major backup of beer photos to post.

Very few things are more enjoyable than cooking a nice weekend meal while drinking a saison out of Greensboro Bend, VT.

Galaxy Brewing Galactic Harvest - We were downtown for a late lunch on Saturday (Lost Dog of course) and decided to stop in at Galaxy for a growler fill. This beer is made with lots of locally harvested hops in the brew kettle and even more fresh / wet hops in a hopback. Pale ale level hopiness. A nice beer. I think this is the way to go - enjoy Galaxy’s beers without having to put up with the spotty food and service.

Jack’s Abby Session Rye IPL - This is a session beer I can get behind. Very nice.

21st  Amendment He Said (Baltic Porter with Pumpkin) - This was alright. Not a lot of pumpkin. 

Boulevard Bourbon Barrel Quad (BBQ) - 5 years ago I would have loved this. It’s good, but feel like I’ve grown out of quad’s at this point.

Southern Tier Pumking - I’ve grown out of a lot of Southern Tier’s imperial series (looking at you Chocolat), but this remains a nice fall treat. Always good for at least one bottle - tempted to pick up a couple more this year.

Hill Farmstead Damon - Could not be at the Hill Farmstead Zwanze Day celebration, but celebrated with my own special Hill Farmstead bottle. An amazing beer.

St. Lawrence Maple Porter - My family camps on the St. Lawrence river every summer so I felt obligated to try this. I had pretty low expectations based on the BeerAdvocate ratings, but thought this was pretty good.
