    Stranger than truth. I had to check and be sure the story wasn't dated April 1.

    Revisiting Garden Groveís Death. Local -Carytown, brewery and urban winery. Belgian style ale made with VA grown 2017 Petit Verdot grapes. Aged 14 months in Napa Valley carved and grooved American oak Cabernet Sauvignon barrels. 10% abv 41ibuís. Only 100 bottles produced. Well crafted, ale and wine. A bit of hoppiness but a smooth, bold, bit of sweet wine finish. Hard to classify this as a straight beer, but really interesting and quite good. Curious if anyone else has come across this type.

    Not exactly what youíve described; historically DFH has made some similar beer:

    https://www.dogfish.com/brewery/beer/red-white

    https://www.dogfish.com/brewery/beer/sixty-one

    Fort is made with raspberry juice, by my memory it was also sweet and vinous.

    Trying to think of others, these were the first I could recall.

    Neglected to add in addition to your question, this reads like quite a tasty beer.

    Format-500 ml bottle
    Stemware-cute little Gingerbread Stout tumbler
    Style-d'oh!
    Appearance-dark brown, modest tan head
    Nose-ginger, honey, vanilla, cinnamon, dark chocolate

    Overall impression-this is either better fresh as the bottle recommends and/or the smaller format make this a bit less flavorful than I recall
    Ymm, Beer rating-still cat 3 but I'm moving this down to the lower tier; worth seeking

    Younger son-in-law just sent me a photo of a beer list at a brew pub near him offering a 1.5 ounce portion of Sam Adams Utopia for $35. No typo. No missing decimal point.

    On December 5, 1933, the 21st Amendment was ratified by Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Utah, thus meeting the required number of states and repealing prohibition.

    I hope you all have commemorated the date accordingly.

    Had my first 2019 CBS last night. Have another in the fridge and aging two more. Debating when I want to break out the 2018.

    Thought the 2019 had a bit of a harsher finish than last years. Would like to compare the two side by side. Either way, still an excellent beer and one I look forward to each year. Wonder how long production will stop this time


    Found a three pack of Bourbon County at a store. 2017, 18, 19 versions. Didn't pull the trigger last night, but will likely go back for it. No luck on variants so far.

    Abbaye de Saint Bon-Chien - Brasserie des Franches-Montagnes (BFM)
    Sour
    11%ABV

    Apologies if I butchered the beer name or brewery

    My oh my. Absolutely outstanding. Possibly the best sour I have ever tasted. Had it on draft at Sergio's World Beers in Louisville.

    Description from Untappd since I will not be able to do it justice: L’Abbaye de Saint Bon-Chien is an antique beer, a strong sour ale with 11% abv aged in old wine oak barrels during one year. After the aging period, the different casks are blended together in order to obtain complexity and lots of flavors. St Bon-Chien is one of the world's flagship's sour beers coming from a mixed fermentation. It first ferments with wine yeast, then during the cask's maturation, lots of microorganisms coming from the casks change the beer's flavors' profile.

    Nowhere in Particular Batch Number 036 Black Peach Gose

    One of devildeac's O-hi-o selections. Not sure quite what I was expecting, because I can't say I know what a "black peach" is. Well, I don't think it's the peach that is black but, instead, the color profile of the beer. Imagine thinking "peach" and instead pouring mahogany/brown? Interesting. I think the "black" comes from the black sea salt, that is mixed in with the peach and some coriander. Not as tart as I would have expected, and all the flavors are pretty subtle (especially the peach). A fascinating beer, and solid Cat 2. Props to the acquirer . . . .
    "Amazing what a minute can do."

    I missed this completely. Thank you for bringing it to our attention. I had a couple ales last PM but did not acknowledge the occasion appropriately but will do so tonight.

    Great find.

    Three variants being delivered when our son visits in two weeks. Will report back.

    Ooooh, that sounds vaguely familiar. I wonder if RJ199 included this in the cooler during a recent trading session. Will check tonight.

    The beer is/was a complete unknown to me but I've had several from that brewer who now has a brick and mortar establishment and may call their business Somewhere In Particular now instead of Nowhere In Particular as they did when they were "pop-up" or "gypsy" brewing. Every batch they brew is a one-off.

    You're most welcome.

    I've got a couple 2016 (?) large format bottles and a couple 4 packs of the 2019 edition, both of which should see PT (pouring time) over the holidays.
