Albany BeerAdvocate Tasting: November Edition

Another month, another night of great beers and eats with the Albany BAs. Ross made some killer ribs, I broke out the Baking Steel and slung a few pies, and of course more than a few beers were shared by all. Let’s check it out.

Beer Mail Part I

– I wanted to make sure I put up a shout out to Yet Another Beer Blog for sending this killer extras box before half of it got drank today on #IPADay without proper attribution. I haven’t done a trade that wasn’t an in person trade since the FedEx Beer Fairy graced my presence back in April, where I traded the same thing, Heady Topper. I love to trade Heady Topper for locals since it’s (fairly) easy to get, I might get to try beers from another part of the country I’m not be able to get otherwise, and I know it’s going to blow the mind of the person receiving it for the first time.

I got home and this was one of those kinda things where I expected a can or two extra and saw the box when I walked in the door and was like “Wow, that’s a large box for a couple of cans of beer, he must have packed those cans up pretty goo….hhhHHOLY SHIT THAT’S A LOT OF BEER!!!” Please keep in mind, this is just an extras box. That’s fucking awesome. I was just saying earlier that day I was looking for some more Breakfast Stout (which isn’t available around here) so I could finally do the Founders Breakfast tasting I’ve been waiting to do since I got my bottle of CBS last fall. This rounds out what I need and I can finally get that done. Also are you fucking kidding me with that Surly Furious? What a solid IPA that nooooooo one can get around here. Can NOT wait to crack that open tonight.

Thanks again. Cheers!
