I'm guessing a lot of people might have issues with Taking Donations being a bit thin, but I find most barleywines to be too thick and sickeningly sweet, so I'm really digging the single barrel version I just cracked. Gonna be hard for me to save my other bottles.

I am moving apartments and I just found a box of 8 remaining gap earth tulips. If anyone wants one, you have two weeks to email me at gapearth at gmail. I forget how much these cost, but I am pretty sure I recouped the money I spent getting them made so I am happy to just send them out for cost of shipping. Otherwise, they are going to the goodwill in January.

Industrial arts make very solid beers and I highly recommend visiting. It's not the best place to hang out but it is a really cool/unique space (some kind of old Mill/factory?)

I prefer wrench to Sloop JB, but they are another brewery I've randomly been into twice in the past few months. They make great stuff all around too but have a very strange Nickelodeon Studios vibe to their branding and decor which is extremely odd.

Hudson valley beer scene is heating up, sloop has another spot right near Suarez. Hudson valley brewing is good. In the Catskills you've got west kill and catskill. I think Woodstock is supposed to be good but haven't stopped in.

Picked up some other half for the first time in a long time

what are the chill, readily available canned stouts / porters these days? something that is 6-8%, non-barrel aged, with no adjuncts. just want to drink something in the cold without getting blitzed or smelling like a coffee pina colada.

I think what I am thinking of is something like la cumbre malpais stout or fremont dark star. both in cans, both lower abv, neither have any adjuncts.

are there other widely available beers like this out there?

honestly, I've never brewed beer but I figure porter is a hard one to fuck up, as I've never had a bad one.

atm I'm drinking a collective arts brewing stranger than fiction, 5.5%, cascade & nugget hops, unfiltered, 16oz can.

but I'll drink an anchor porter or a great lakes edmund fitzgerald any time. Bottled not canned but that makes no difference to me.

like I wouldn't over think porter as a style. my preferred bottle shop gets new ones all the time from a raft of downstate IL brewers and they're always.... good? Satisfying? again it's just an approachable style, pick one out of a hat and you'll be fine.

was lamenting tonight that even though deschutes is canning they hasn't expanded to the obsidian stout.

Mikkeller's Breakfast Kløb imperial coffee stout is outstanding, especially for a non-BA stout

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.

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" :(
