I never would have thought, even just a few years ago, that a large portion of my Christmas presents would be beer. Thankfully, that is now the case for the last couple of years (it seems people are starting to learn).
I got a couple of books, Tasting Beer, and Beers of the World. I also got a Hopside Down glass, which I'd wanted for a couple of years. You'll see it in a post or two in the near future. Still looking for a good Belgian glass / snifter / chalice, though... any economical suggestions?
So... what beers did I get?
BrewDog's 77 Lager and 5 A.M. Saint, VB - Victoria Bitter, Red Racer ESB, Mill Street Lemon Tea Beer, and a Sam Adams Octoberfest.
Propeller Revolution Russian Imerial Stout, Garrison Black IPA, Westmalle Dubbel, Caracole Nostradamus, Tripel Karmeliet, and a Lagunitas Little Sumpin' Sumpin' Ale
Innis & Gunn Highland Cask, La Vache Folle ESB and Imperial Milk Stout, Young's Double Chocolate Stout, and a Fuller's 2010 Vintage Ale.
Finally, I got some nice corked 750's of: Unibroue's Don de Dieu, Blanche de Chambly, La Fin du Monde, and Noire de Chambly. Also, a bottle of La Trappe Tripel.
I've had a couple already.... one very unique and good, the other wasn't quite my thing. Can't wait to "work" my way through them!
