    Warm caramel and notes of raisin, plum, and fig.
    I'm guessing Great Uncle even better than Cousin, but both sound amazing

    I've already got a couple/three sequestered for a large deck meeting this summer, hopefully.

    Put one in the fridge, will be trading 2-3 others.
    Would be nice to see more Intermingling.

Ruse offers a rich mouthfeel with a deceptively dry, tannic finish. 11.3% abv. 60 ibu’s, but I don’t believe that.

    I've seen/experienced a Ruse or two before.

    This was today’s from-the-can swing oils. It is the most “floral” Pils I have ever tasted. In a really good way. It’s light, and has a bit of bite, but also a complexity that I usually don’t see in this style. I wanna revisit, but from a glass. Thankfully I have three more (and Mrs. Tripping isn’t really drinking much beer lately).

    Good stuff.
    This sounds excellent.

    I saw Stella also recently got a Pilsner with a fun name:
    @casitabrews Collab Sorry If This Doesn’t Change Your Life Pilsner

    The last Pilsner I had from Casita was the best one I've tasted from that style, called Go Ask Your Father back when Stella had draft.

    Thanks for rec - I'll look for this one too.

    Probably not, but no reason she can't have roses and a beer like that to share
    You are correct on both counts. However, I'd make it roses, beer and some fine chocolates.

    I'm pretty sure every beer you describe I say - Damn!, I've got to try that one.

    And damn, I've got to try that one.

    Worth seeking out. Or trading for.

    Family Tree *might* be even better than the Cellar Door program.

After Trickery is born, we condition on bourbon Madagascar vanilla beans and Vietnamese cinnamon. Family Tree exclusive. 13.5%
    I would love to try this one. Trickery is so good by itself. And the Mega GBS I had aged in Laird's apple brandy barrel was one of my favorite GBS variants.

    This beer will be no joke

    It can be anywhere in the world.

    My favorite used to be Brewery Bhavana. And it's tough because different breweries specialize in so many fun styles. Plus I love local favorites.

    But as we all know, there has to be a #1 meaning there has to be a #2

    Right now my favorite is Hardywood, but would love to hear about others and your picks
    #1 might be Wolf's Ridge and my #1A might be The Veil.

    More for you .

    I don't think I've had many (any?) Perennial brews before.

    We take our classic barleywine and boil it for four hours in the kettle to carmelize malt sugars into a rich malt with dark fruit aroma and flavor. We then age it in Basil Hayden bourbon barrels for 16 months to provide smooth barrel characteristics like oak and vanilla. Family Tree exclusive. 12.5%
    Interested to hear what you think of this one too.

    I had one BBA barleywine from Commonwealth I loved. But I've had some others from lesser breweries that were tough for me to drink. I bet this one is of the Cat 3 variety

    This one had me at better than Caliente.
