    Stores got a shipment a week or two ago. But I think most places only got one case, maybe two, so its probably all gone by now.

    Picked up the case of Zoe's last night from my buddy. Had them in the fridge over night. It is just delicious. It truly is, as the label states, a Happy, Hoppy, Amber Ale. Mmmn, Mmmmn! Ended up being $5.25/16.9 oz bottle.....and that's wholesale! Pricey, but it is definitely worth it. Could very well be my favorite. Definitely top 3.

    Have you tried Lunch? Not sure which one I like better, don't buy them enough due to the price, but like you said definitly worth it.

    Also just picked up a 4-Pack of Sierra Nevada Torpedo pounders, might have to become the go to hiking beer.

    I have had the Lunch. I like the lunch better than the Peeper's Ale. But, IMHO, I like the Zoe better than the Lunch.

    Alas, no Rogue Voodoo Doughnut at Valley Spirits. But I did pick up some Brewnette Beaver (Beaver Beer Company) and Doggie Style (Flying Dog).

    I just picked up a Peeper and a Mean Old Tom. That was all the beer store had for Maine Brewing. Was hoping they had some Heady Topper, but no luck. Never had it before.

    Let us (me) know how you like them.

    I'm definitely interested in trying the heady topper. I'm going to look next time I'm at the LBS.

I was initially drawn to check it out by it's can't miss bright pink bottle. Then when I read the description, I was suddenly putting a few into my shopping cart. It's a 5.6% ABV MAPLE BACON Ale!!!



    As i'm in my final few hardcore training days for this weekend Tough Mudder at Mount Snow, I've yet to do more than just look at the bottle and think of what it will taste like after I finish Tough Mudder this Saturday. A "trip report" will follow for sure!
    My TR:

    Upon opening that big pink bottle the pour is medium amber and clear with an average amount of head. The aroma had me thinking breakfast. Definite maple, definite smoky/bacon smell. This really got my taste buds excited!!

    The taste, kind of a let down to be honest with you after how good the aroma was. My taste buds could detect some maple and definitely had some smoke with a moderate hoppy finish. My 1st taste impression was something along the lines of a Sam Adams Boston Lager with a mild smoky finish. I had no problems finshing it, and would likely buy another pink bottle if I happen to come across it again. Overall I'd give it a "B" - above average and quite acceptable, but there just seemed like there was more potential for something better than the end result

    Drinking the Peeper right now. Was amazed at how the smell of the hops jumped out of the bottle when I opened it. Not as heavy as I expected but it's very hoppy. Tasty brew. I'd get it again.

    A friend gave me a sixer of 16oz Narraganset Summers, not bad, good session beer it is only 4.25% so you can have a few.
    With the weather looking good for the weekend anyone have any summer beer suggestions?
