I'm jealous.
I've heard very good things about fresh Guinness. :D

that's what made me fall in love with it.
Bottle is terrible. Can is ok, as long as it was brewed in dublin.

I believe it is not pasteurized. That's why it's so good.

It is actually harder to find Maine lunch than sculpin. My biggest find was cigar city jai alai, but wasn't too crazy about it. Way too citrusy!

Even in Cali it's tough.
I've had PTY and PTE. Honestly, not that impressed.

Jealous that you had access to heady topper. Worthy of a road trip? I tried convincing the wife that it's normal to drive 12 hours for a beer (6 there and back) but she didn't buy it. Ah well...

My BIL goes to school in VT. I fly him here, he brings me Heady. It's a good arrangement.

Rye IPA's are so good. Would love to try that.

I'm down for a beer DO whenever. Just make a date.

Now that's an arrangement. Need a BIL like that

In  for the  DO, but should be limited to strictly IPAs :)
