Sierra Nevada kinda always makes these lists because of how influential they were for IPAs and their sustainability in general. Their beers are good shelfies that deserve mention over the latest fads.

Speaking of Sierra Nevada, went to one of my local stores today and they had bottles of the 2006, 2008 and 2011 iterations of Bigfoot gathering dust. Been in a big boozy, malty beer phase recently, so interested to see how these have aged. Overall finding myself really uninspired lately with beer. Just got back from two weeks in England and had some lovely traditional ales on cask here and there, but nothing that really blew me away. Totally bored by the walls of hazy four packs that are greeting me around town every time I go in a shop.

Oh holy shit how much for the vintage bigfoots?

I used to have a vertical from 99-14 but I fell off the beer train basically in 2010 and would love to replenish it

They really shine at a decade plus, definitely grab at least one of each of the vintages if they're not ungodly expensive

I got into bourbon right as the dusty phenomenon was peaking but being able to buy old Bigfoot sixers 2000-2006 that had been kept at cellar temperature the entire time was a luxury I didn't appreciate

Three or four of those a night will up your weightclass quite quickly

I still drink IPAs way too often but I've been on a stout kick all year, which hasn't been optimal in the current weather.

Highland Park Brewery's new member bottle is a barrel aged Neapolitan stout. I'm really excited to try it but I only got two bottles so it's gonna be hard not to crack one open immediately. Their 504 collab with Horus was also really good, as was the MT Mega Devil's Teeth with cocoa, coconut, and macadamia.

Can't remember the last time I've had Bigfoot but now I want some.

I gotta do this, I've been getting a lot better about buying stuff, but I do have a few too many bottles. Probably doing sober october to save money for the holidays.

Heard Reubens Crikey is real good too.

I liked the Fremont Centennial/Simcoe, though it was wildly bitter in a way I haven't experienced in a long time. Looking forward to the Citra/Amarillo.

Had some Cantillon Kriek at the Mecca Grade Estate Malt harvest fest on Saturday. Ruled, of course. Also lots of rare Ale Apothecary, Alesong, De Garde, and Fremont stuff. Rusty Nail was a highlight.

Track brewery in Manchester have got really good lately. The green can is an imperial version of their flagship pale ale Sonoma, brewed at Other Half.

Had a taster at the bar and seemed pretty excellent. Anyone had a can in the US?

This fresh hop stuff is getting out of hand. Picked up the Cloudburst/Bale Break Citra Slicker, Reuben's Fresh Hop Crikey, and Matchless/Skookum The Freshmaker.

They are canning and distributing now. Having their No Mates Citra IPA right now and it's...fine. Really nothing special.

Is anybody heading to Woodshop 13 next month? Last year was a blast, my buddy who makes fun of me for being a beer nerd had such a good time that we're heading down to San Diego for the weekend for it. I haven't been outside of LA in two years so I'm very much looking forward to it.
