Tried a Stillwater artisanal - folklore last night. It is labeled a "mythical traditional ale" but I would say it is far from traditional and didnt really resemble an ale. It seemed like a combo of a porter, a stout and a sour ale (maybe it was just a sour ale and I don't have enough experience with that genre). The strange thing was, it seemed to have a different finish with almost every sips. I found myself saying, "mmmm, that was good." and a couple sips later saying, "what was that, not sure if I like this or not. One sip, I'd think porter. 5 minutes later, I'd think "too smooth, seems to favor a stout." usually the early sips (poured into a glass from a bomber) favored the sour beer. Very unique experience. Love to hear someone else's take on this if they've had it.
i remember liking it but all their beers run together for me. I think they all fall under the "farmhouse ale" general category, which is sort of vague, but they all have some sourness going on somewhere. Every time I have a stillwater I like it, but i honestly have a hard time differentiating them. guess if they were side by side it'd be easier
Ballast Point Indra Kunindra - anyone had that? thought it was amazing. stout, but smelled like limes, tasted like i dont know what, and had a nice cayenne burn on the after taste. seemed crazy to me that they could pull that off in a mass produced bottle

I.M. Wine now has growlers - 6 taps. and its a counter pressure system (rather than just filling up the growlers and capping it), so unopened they should keep for a fairly long time in the fridge.
Rodman's in Friendship sold out of it 15 minutes before i got there...HOPSLAM!!! I NEED IT NOW
Was kinda disappointed with hopslam. Still good, but just a lot of hype that goes with it.
When does Nugget Nectar come out? Chevy Chase told me they're getting Hopslam this upcoming week.
Nugget Nectar is all over VA, Total Wines, Whole Foods, etc. not in MD yet
Had some Heavy Seas Black Cannon this week...seems this years batch is a but more roasted malt and less hoppy, but still works and is delicious!
IIRC Frisco's has a cask of that. Was not overly impressed.
Was my first trip to Frisco's. They may have 50 taps but that place is awful.
Hopslam is all over the place in my hood. I picked some up at D'vines in Columbia Heights, my roommate got some at Irving Liquors (Irving/Mt Pleasant St). D'vines seemed to have a decent supply.
had this out west last week ... it's really good
Deschutes Mirror Pond Pale Ale ... i also asked for a Douches Mirror Pond Pale Ale and the hot waitress laughed.
Drinking the 12.12 vertical epic. Blah. Just not a fan of beer with a ton of spices I guess.
Where is Nugget Nectar in Maryland or when is it getting here?
Friendship in Abingdon/Bel Air has it now so I'm sure it won't be hard to find elsewhere in Md
Anyone here been to Hops n Vines in Odenton? I'm going to be in the area tomorrow and was thinking of checking it out if I get the chance. Worth a visit?
Also I previously posted about the Olney Safeway deal on Sierra Nevada. Now they have six packs of Torpedo and Ruthless Rye for $6.50 each also. I tried the Ruthless Rye, 6.6% pretty spicy/citrusy and smooth for an IPA. I think the deal runs through April.
Too far. Randomly found it at either Corridor or Village Pump the last two years. Haven't see it yet this year.
Any Hopslam still around? Haven't passes Chevy Chase or Magruder's recently to check.
CC is out of Nectar currently. I read somewhere Troegs is having distribution problems in DC.
To each their own. 12.12.12 is stellar, imo.
In Jackinsville, drinking Killer Whale Ale, much like the city, meh!
If you're in that area you'd be better off going to Odenton Liquors, 1115 Annapolis Rd, they have a bigger selection and cheaper prices.
Hopslam is gone but supposedly there will be a second drop.
If you are in DC/VA, Williamsburg Alewerks Bitter Valentine is out now (in the last few days) and is every bit as good as Hopslam / Hoptimum / 90 Minute, etc. I'd argue its close to Pliny the Elder territory, frankly. need to do a taste test.

Finally cracked open the BCBS Cherry Rye last night. The hype for this beer is totally justified. Definitely one to share amongst a few people as it's really heavy and 13.7%, but man, it's one of the best beers I've ever had.
Also tried Barrel Aged Bigfoot. I'm not a huge barleywine guy but this one was a winner.
You need to go to Kickbacks Gastropub. They have like 80 taps. I was there 2 weeks ago and they had Ruination, Sublimely Self Righteous, Palate Wrecker and many other awesome IPAs all on tap that night
Kickbacks Gastropub, Gastropub Restaurant in Riverside. See 45 photos, 11 blog posts and 137 user reviews. Reviews from critics, food blogs and fellow diners.
Had a widmer bros. Omission today. That was my first. Delicious!
when is this second drop? ...and where is the closest place for an Anne Arundel County guy to drive to get Bell's sixers?
