    my drinking session includes one stout ,one ipa,one dipa, possibly a sour ,a Belgian beer or a german beer like a Schneider aventinus, I can't drink too many stouts because my poop comes out dark brown and colon cancer runs in my family it freaks me out, I have some british sam Smith beer too I like the taste of oatmeal.

    I found a Fieldwork coffee porter style in an English pub at lunch and it's doing my head in now because I can't remember the name of it and I can't find it on their website. My Bloody Mary was horrid so I had to swap out back to beer again.

    I have tried many sours but I have yet to find one I enjoy.

    I am not a fan of sours, saisons and white beers.

    I like sours but can't drink more than 16 oz at at time if I drink two pints of a sour at a time because I will puke it is rough on the stomach.


    my favorite sour is rodenbach alexander aside from micro brew sours

    petrus aged red is also good but expensive

    At Altamont Beer Works earlier. A Maui Waui west coast style IPA and a Rich Mahogany American red ale. Didn’t think much of his but my Maui is always awesome.

    @ Uproar Brewery in San Jose. I’ve got a Fieldwork Pulp which is the haziest of all pulp beers ever. The other one, ugh. Waiting for some freind of a friend to come play music and be supportive.

    Not necessarily craft beer but that Sierra Nevada's Hazy Lil Thing IPA is delicious.

    It’s still a good hazy.

    I finally bit the bullet and went for it.

    We attended this thing last weekend. Over 100 craft beer vendors from all over the country, set up in a corn field. Each vendor had 3-5 different beers on tap. They give you a glass when you go in, and it's try as many as you want. It was awesome. Loved Bier Brewery's pumpkin spice.

    We have loads of those around here, it's awesome.

    The last one was a punk craft beer festival...I don't even like punk but it was awesome fun.

    I can't get on with pumpkin in my beer though, haha.

    It was a lot of fun. Long day, but a lot of fun. I didn't think I would like the pumpkin spice either, but it was by far the best that I had there all day.

    Love the corn maze festival idea.

    Can’t stand pumpkin beer.

    I'd just start at the left and work my way to the right. Keep track so you can pick up where you left off on your next visit.
    Looks WAY too bright for a bar though. And they need to get some shit on the wall. Looks like a bedroom.
