    I had a Great Lakes Double Stout or something. Maybe a winter warmer stout? I'm not sure. It's seasonal and the first time I've seen it. I was so impressed I drank all four bottles and told everyone else to screw off.



    good man.

    Drinking a few glasses of cab, no idea the name.... It's from Tuscany and in a simple numbered bottle

    I swiped a bottle from the gala thanksgiving event.

    Brother in law shipped 12 cases over for the holidays. It must be spendy stuff because that's what he gravitates to.



    Does it taste spendy? Or Boone's Farmy?


    Spendy, but I'm a poor judge of wine, I drink what tastes good, usually that would be a 19 dollar cab or Malbec

    Never had box wine to my knowledge, but I'm open to suggestions!

    Really into these seasonal bourbon and other spirits-finished beers right now! Found another of those Widmer specialty batch beers and something called The Abyss by Deschutes. They are hiding in the bottom drawer of my fridge. Might open them today if we go get the Christmas tree. Decorating plus beer plus a Star Trek marathon on TV is all good.

    Well what I'm drinking right now. These are both drinkable but I think the black box is much better.

    The Bota box Malbec is decent. At least you don't care after a bottle of good stuff!

    Had to find a decent box to take camping and fishing so we didn't have to bring a bag of glass back with us.

    I've been down on long trail in the past, but after meeting their quality assurance guy I thought I need to give it another shot. I'm not calling this the best Amarican style IPA but it's good and at a very reasonable price.

    I find the winter beers aren't quite as dark or complex as the Fall beers?? Haven't seen anything yet to get worked up about. The good news is all the spirits are on sale now so we picked up a couple scotches and three bottles of rum/bourbon/brandy for egg nog!

    My Centennial IPA. It's good, but I'm getting tired of it.

    Get something else going. Bottle the rest of this if you need the keg space.
