Went to Timer's in Racine over the weekend, so much old beer. :cry: Other Half cans that were a year old, an American Solera beer from 2016. Nothing I wanted to gamble on. Also lots of newer WI breweries i'd never heard of like Broken Bat, Minocqua, 1840. oldguy feels :bakes:

Lactose on my mind, a friend of ours came by to trade beers and gave me 2 lactose beers out of 4.
I was like "no lactose beers please"...but not sure that it computes. :rant:

One was from Pipeworks, just literally tastes like carbonated fruit juice. Getting tired of this crap.

The OG lactose DIPA :bow: They also beat Hop Butcher to using Dan Grzeca's label art by a decade or so. I remember thinking "what's that weird aftertaste" even back then.

I never had a problem with the aftertaste, but I haven’t had one in quite a while.

I remember popping a <7 day old bottle in the middle of a sour tasting event at Mekong (local beer bar) and you could smell the hops from across the room.

That thing is a tooth melter.  Between the extreme bitterness fresh off the line, plus the sugar, it's an experience.

3F Intens Rood PX

PX Sherry barrel blend of Intens Rood. $45 was a little steep, but it was cool to see in the wild.

Label text
Bottling date: 07/10/2020 • 75cl

"While looking for old sherry barrels, we cannot get lucky all the time. While we will be sourcing barrels directly from bodegas to assure provenance and quality, we had a batch of Pedro Ximenez (PX) barrels that was on the peated side (albeit subdued). As a result, we decided not to use them for Zenne y Frontera, but to blend them with other (fruit) lambikken into geuze and fruit blends.

This is the first of such blends to be released. Sour cherries were macerated partly on young peated lambik and partly on two-year old straight lambik in a stainless steel tank. We blended with young and three-year old (!) lambik. 55% of the blend is old lambik and the final fruit intensity is 567 grams of sour cherries per litre.

3 Fonteinen Intens Rood, a vigourous Kriek, is the slow and all-natural maceration of whole sour cherries on traditional lambik. No addition of juices, syrups or artificial sweeteners. Unfiltered. Unpasteurised."

I passed on 3F Druif Muscat Bleu 750ml over the weekend.  Burger Antics had them to go for $75.

I did not pass on a $60 3F Hommage. I had to have one. Ten years ago, imagining that I could buy this on the shelf in Texas would have blown my mind. I won't buy it again at that price but it was so good.

Caption: "This beer is blue." :confused: Proof this shit rots your brain :chooch:
Wasn't the Brawndo beer at the Taste was like 4 years ago already? Can this joke fad/bullshit be over now? :shrug:

Also, last week I went to Tenuta's and took one look at the rack of 100 singles and it was all juice and candy beers. :backsaway:

Benthic from Half Acre - $50 a four pack of 12 ouncers.  A buck an ounce is not too terrible but I would have bought a can.  Just not four.

I definitely didn't buy any the brewery either. Dunno why it's not 2 packs or singles.

Noted that the corner store had a decent Bells selection, Porter, Double Cream, Official, Two Hearted, in addition to the Expedition I bought. Just too much beer to drink right now. :bag:
