Mikkeller's Breakfast Kløb imperial coffee stout is outstanding, especially for a non-BA stout
(not meant to be an answer to the "canned stouts and porters" question)

I really like porters and I generally think you're right that they're hard to screw up, but really good ones are significantly better than the average. Founders is so good/available so I usually don't deviate outside of a Maine beer co, HF, or other special one from time to time.

Ironically this one I'm having from la cabra right now is not very good

oo yeah this is a good one too but I wonder if drinking from the can would underwhelm? the non-nitro mocha Merlin is good too and while it's not adjunct free, the chocolate/coffee notes are super subtle

I find most porters to be pretty underwhelming. Pretty happy Mocha Machine is getting distro'd frequently now though.

I do. It's in bottles and i try to avoid glass in the woods but maybe I'll pick some up and be careful.


took some bottles of founders porter climbing yesterday. two of them clanked together in my not very full backpack and broke. 24 oz of beer all over all my climbing gear. so much for being "careful" :(

had a 2017 Grey Monday yesterday, that is still a really, really good beer. Bruery kind of gets left behind in all the BA stout hype these days

I'm predicting that 2009 will be drain poured

We had a 2012 like last year and it was totally disgusting. Maybe we stored it really bad though, I dunno. Hopefully it works out for ya

Just had a few beers at Braven Brewery. It was good I guess.

i think braven is fine, but with grimm, interboro, and kcbc a short walk away, competition is very stiff

is the food good?

Ended up going to rip current, pizza port and eppig I'm SD. Eppig has a good lagering program so it was up my alley. Pizza port was awesome for having a kid and really really wish there was something like it in Seattle.

pizza port is awesome as an adult. really wish there was something like that in LA. PP is probably 50% of the reason i am willing to go down to orange county to surf.
