In Reply To #1 Not bad. I've had them all but the last one. I have seen it in my local store, though.

In Reply To #3 Kwak is an interesting belgian. I've seen several Kwak Yards and half Yards. An excellent glass for an excellent beer.

In Reply To #5 Did you just buy those? Man, I haven't made a run like that in a while. plenty of Stone and I see there's even a Raftman in there!

In Reply To #6 Yep, $125 of splurging. I took a trip to Massachusetts Yankee Spirits in Sturbridge for this one. Future note to self, buy beer, then drink, not the other way around. It results in a credit card bill from hell. I was real excited to see raftman. Sources from Unibroue have said that it's no longer imported. I found 750ml bottles, and was wary of buying them, for fear of them being in the light too long. I then found a closed six pack box. The sixer was only $9.99, whereas the 750ml was $4.99. Excellent. Since Stone, Weyerbacher, and Bear Republic aren't available in CT, I had to stock up. In the past I've only had Stone's Ruination. I was very excited to get a hold of the rest of the lineup. I won't be so excited when the bill comes in though. I also picked up a Rapscallion snifter that came with the four pack of Creation. Cool glass.

wow, i hope your stash lasts you more than a week. That's funny that you don't have Weyerbacher. It's local here and dirt cheap. I haven't even tried much of their stuff though!

In Reply To #8 Connecticut has really shitty distribution laws. If Weyerbacher were to sign a contract with the lone CT distributor, they are forced to stick out the contract. Once signed, there is no cancelling. If the distributor sells old cases, or only sells one case a year, etc etc, there is nothing the brewery can do about it. This is why a lot of breweries stray away from CT, or do extensive research before expanding their business into the state. I long for the day Stone, Bear Republic, Weyerbacher, Midnight Sun, Alaskan Brewing Company, and Stoudt's line our shelves. I got three sixer of Weyerbacher beers; Raspberry Imperial Stout, Blithering Idiot, and Old Heathen. I'm interested in brewing a Raspberry Imperial stout at some point but I wanted to get a taste for them first. I've never seen one until now. You're lucky to live local to such great breweries. That's not to say CT doesn't have great breweries, but they're small and limited by stupid legislature.

that sucks. supposably PA is the most expensive to sell beer to (according to a guy at a place witha big selection here). he said each brewery has to pay a license fee, which is the most expensive of any state to sell their beer here, and that it prevents some places that would only sell 10 cases a year or so.
