    I'm still waiting for a report from August West about the beer tastings at tailgate yesterday. CB&B sent me photos of CBS and Curieux already...

    They were both excellent. I've picked up some more CBS yesterday. Let me know if you want some. The crowd at the tasting table was as sparse as the crowd in WW after halftime. Hopefully the weather and attendance will be better for Miami. AW.

    If you're willing to part with a 4 pack of CBS, I'll print up some more Hamiltons to cover the cost, or, negotiate some traders. Happy either way.

    Yeah, we love her. We donít like him. She loves Duke, huge Grayson fan. She came to a tailgating this year. My wedding gift? Tickets to the b-ball game 11/29 and a night at the Washington Duke Inn. His gift? Pots and pans.

    Thatís a crazy generous cache of beer for a wedding. Wow!

    Ending the weekend with another stout. Vasen Velvet Walrus. Yeah, velvet walrus. BBA milk stout. 9.9%, 22 ibuís. Not as thick as most, and not as boozy. Kind of like a lighter version of BBA stouts. At 9.9% that makes it dangerous. 4-pack, 16oz. cans, really easy to drink. If someone didnít like stouts or thought they were too heavy, this would change their mind. Maybe not quite cat. 3, but close. I like the hint of sweetness and the hint of chocolate, not overpowering. Enjoyable. Getting into more Vasen beers, god help me another Scottís Addition brewery to spend $$ at, and right around the corner from Veil and Ardent. They have a really cool space/tap room.

    Survived the journey to the Island of Hawaii. Managed to swing by three breweries in the time there: Kona, Ola, and Big Island. Returned to Indianapolis and promptly made a stop at the new downtown Taxman location before ending the evening at Sun King. Will hopefully have some notes up after fighting off this jet lag.

    Not sure if it's been mentioned, but Founders claims this is the last year the will be brewing CBS. Also appears to be available in four packs now.

    Sounds like a great trip. Will be interesting to compare your Hawaii tasting experience with Tripping William's.

    Also anxious to read about any new Taxman and/or Sun King brews.

    Fuse also mentioned the same claim by Founders which sounds verrrry similar to what they said in 2009. And 2011. And 2014. And 2016. I have a four pack waiting for me in Columbus, OH, this weekend and August West may have some more from Durham at the miami tailgate.

    Revisiting AMB mystic dragon (Ymm, cider!) with green tea, rhubarb and strawberries

    In a word, sweet.
    Two words- pleasantly sweet.

    I taste a lot of vanilla, which I think is really green tea, and the finish is juicy strawberry.

    Having avoided rhubarb all my life, who knows what that adds 🤔

    Far too easy sipping. 🍻

    Wait, why would I want to post in the LTE when we're trying to narrow the gap here?

    Oh, *this* that other thread:

    https://forums.dukebasketballreport...8179-Ycch-Beer!

    Sheepishly (not *those* kind of sheep), I now remember that "Similar Threads" appears at the bottom of every DBR page and I coulda/shoulda simply scrolled to the bottom of this (or any) Ymm, Beer page, found Ycch, Beer and posted there.

    Sorry, I'm not much help here. Don't recall every having seen anything from this brewery, whether in Charleston or Hilton Head/Savannah (which is where Bluffton is located).

    Question to our Richmond beersters about The Answer, a brewery that appears to be associated with Mekong, a Vietnamese restaurant in RVA:

    Good reputation?
