Christmas Stash
« on: November 21, 2015, 11:32:01 PM »
Do you have a Christmas stash? Throughout the year, I buy beers to be cellared and enjoyed around the holidays. They are usually, but not always bombers. Here's what I have so far this year...

I opened a Crime earlier this week and really enjoyed it. That and the habanero Sculpin and our taste buds were fried.

What brewery makes those wine barrel aged beers? I've never seen them before.

Yes. The boulevard beers I've had so far are really good.  I almost bought a cherry stout from them.  Might go back for it.

Yep.  Every year.  Some of these are from last year and the year before that and so on... it can be tough deciding on the right time to crack a bottle of DL.  Certainly I need more than just me around!  Most of the hording comes from me not wanting to tackle a high abv bomber solo.

I wish that I could land some Three Floyds. I went to a place yesterday that had Dreadnaught listed on their online taplist. I got there and they told me it was gone in less than two hours.

Yeah, sometimes a bomber is too much for yourself. But that's not where my idea of the Christmas stash originated. It started back in the college days and it wasn't with beer   ::)
