@cigarcitybrewing #moatwater a big stout brewed with vanilla and coffee and aged on maple veneers. Very nice! #craftbeer #cheers Awesome goodness with @gooseislandbeer #bcbs vertical '12-'14. Thanks @rowingmachine2k for the share. #cheers! So ready to try the '15. craftbeer Brought home these #smallbatch #bourbon puppies. @woodfordreserve #doubleoaked and this one I am very excited about -#jeffersonsocean To make this batch of Jefferson’s Ocean Trey Zoeller, Jefferson’s Master Blender, sourced 62 barrels of bourbon aged 6-8 years and then put them on a container ship for 6 months where the barrels rocked and sloshed across the oceans stopping at a total of 31 ports and making their way across the equator four times. The theory is that this constant movement of the liquid in the barrels ages (matures) the whiskey faster because more of the liquid is in contact with the wood more often also giving off caramel and some of that sea brine. #cheers! The man, the myth, the legend! No, not talking about my buddy #samcalagione founder of @dogfishbeer 😂 #justanotherbeergeekselfie @ #savor2015 in #washingtondc #craftbeer #latergram A fine brew @firestonewalker #stickeemonkee It was a @cyclebrewing kind of night with some #creamandsugarplease plus a delicious treat of some #crank!
