Went to the store to pickup a six of something yesterday on the way to a party and saw Racer 5, went to grab it until i saw the price, $13.99! I think $10 for a six is a my limit so I grabbed a Full Sail APA which was excellent, and only $9.99!

Bought a six of Full Sail Pale Ale last night on the way to a BBQ because i had never seen it before. A nicely rounded beer, both the flavors and bitterness were really well-balanced and i liked the hop flavor, not sure what they use. I only got to drink 3 of them because other people wanted to try it also but I will definately be buying this again.

I might try the IPA next time to see the difference, but the APA is very close to a session beer.

If you see this near you its worth a try.

Love the pint gavel, its excellent, it adds a nice light-hearted feel to starkness of the color. My only criticism is the typeface, its very cartoonish, you might want to choose something alittle more serious to reflect the law part of the site, the gavel takes care of the lighter side. Something like Trajan, Garamond, etc might fit the bill or maybe a slab serif like Unit or Chunk Five.

good luck with the site!

I just had this for the first time last weekend and it was excellent. Sometimes DFH seems a bit over the top but i drank 3-4 of them with little problem :) I cant do that with the 60/90 any more than 1 or 2 of those and i'm done for the night.

nice beer, i'll def pick it up again.

I tend towards Speyside as my go-to whiskys because theres something about drinking smoke-flavored scotch that activates my gag-reflex so Talisker/Laphroiag/etc is right out the window for me...I dont mind the earthy flavor of the peat but the smoke is just disgusting. If i wanted that flavor in my booze i would dump an ashtray in it. yuck!

I think Balvenie 12 Double Wood is probably my favorite at the moment but I also like Macallan, Glenmorangie, Drumguish, Speyburn, Singleton of Glendullan, Glenlivet, and Glenfiddich to name a few.

I found a nice flavor map which has been a huge help in determining what to try next:

I also have a PDF here that's printable and with more info.

I've seen the big mouth bottles like above, but it's been years since I saw the grenade ones (with the pull tab cap).

yeah i didnt notice an exact match for the old ones when i was searching

We used to really enjoy Mickey's on a hot summer day but when they stopped producing the "grenade" wide-mouth barrel bottles we stopped buying it. The puzzles under the cap were fun too.

My wife still has a few 6-packs of the bottles left over, she uses them for flower vases haha.

I picked up a 12 pack of Olympia 95% Malt in orange cans. It's fairly good, although head retention is not as good as the older recipe. It's sill cheap without marketing hype. Put money in the ingredients and not the marketing department.

ahaha my grandfather used to drink Olympia, I remember the slogan on the can was "Its in the water" and we always joked that the logo should be a picture of a bear standing near the side of a stream facing away from you with his arms crossed infront of him near his waist. ;)

If you are a whisky drinker I highly recommend Whisky Stones. My wife bought them for me last year for father's day and they are fantastic, I use them all the time.
