Congratulations Mr. Brew Master. I think I'll have a Free State Ad Astra Ale in celebration.

Seems I am graduating from homebrewer to professional. Local brewery and restaurant is reopening this fall and brewer friend of mine put a word in and I am currently helping getting the brewery area organize and back into operation.
Cool!

I was in Manchester and northern Lancashire two weeks ago and last week. I had some great beers and ales.

Two were Black Sheep's Best Bitter and Ale.

Another was Thwaite's Lancaster Bomber. Unfortunately, I couldn't find their Porter on tap.

Popular Beers: From the ancient Egyptians to the President of the United States, beer has always been popular.

President Obama has been brewing his own beer in the White House, which seems appropriate given the popularity of beer in America and, indeed, the world.

If one happens to pass through Grand Central Station in NY City, stop in at the Beer Table Pantry and check out the excellent selection on the shelves.

http://beertable.com/beer-table-pantry/

and they have growlers - http://beertable.com/draft/

Today's list:

Greenport Harbor Black Duck Porter
De Dolle Arabier
Lagunitas Daytime
Southern Tier Pumking
Schneider Wiesen Edel Weisse
Red Hook Winery Brooklynbrusco
Brooklyn Soda Works Apple Ginger Soda
Cask: Harviestoun Old Engine Oil


I passed through recently, but didn't have sufficient time to check out all of the stock.

I'll be back though.

This is a wee bit over the top, but Scottish brewery Brewmeister claims to have created the world's most alcoholic beer, Armageddon, using a process called freeze fermenting to reach super-high alcohol by volume levels -- 65% abv.

http://screen.yahoo.com/is-this-the-...-30957670.html

And some think Deschute Abyss Imperial Stout (12% abv) is strong.

A beer somewhat similar to Deschutes Abyss is Goose Island's Bourbon County Stout.

Anchor Steam's Christmas Ale that is out now is pretty good.

Recently brewed a California Common, which is what Anchor's Steam beer is a representative of. Anchor trademarked the term 'steam beer' so no other brewery can use it, so the style is called California Common.

My new favorite is Yeti from the Great Divide Brewing Company. A very nice Imperial Stout. Not cheap but well worth the money.

I recently had Anderson Valley Brewing's Wild Turkey Bourbon Barrel Stout. It was excellent.

http://avbc.com/our-beers/anderson-v...-barrel-stout/

It is definitely smooth.

I've developed a taste for stouts and porters aged in bourbon or whisky barrels.

Bois from The Bruery

http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/16866/93643
Bois is the fifth anniversary ale, loosely brewed in the English-style Old Ale tradition using our house Belgian yeast strain and then blended using the solera method. A portion of each of our anniversary ales is saved in our barrels and blended in with the next year's production, providing more complexity and depth of character that comes with age. Layered with complex flavors of dark fruit,vanilla, oak, and burnt sugar, Bois is a robust ale, surely the perfect beer to mark this major milestone.
It is one of best beers I've ever had.

That sounds like my kind of ale. Must be the the Sherry of beer, with the Aging Process they use.

Are those bottles 28 oz? With a 15% ABV, I might be able to drink two.

I see a road trip in my near future.
