I didn't drink my Kudzu either yet, may kill it after the Mexican nut brown tonight. Can't say I've had a Mexican nut brown before.

It's an American style brown nut made in Mexico; basically confused, beer advocate doesn't rate it very highly.

Snowcase #3:

I didn't know Phillips even made a doppelbock. Would buy more for the holidays.

Lucked into the last wax dipped bomber of Hermannator that Brewery Creek had today. Into the cellar it goes for a year or so.

i have not managed to find any of these snow cases. Do the combo's that come in them change, or are they always the same?

I think they are pretty much all gone, they were raffling off "refurbished" cases at the brewery that had been returned from BCL due to broken bottles. There is an Iphone app you can get that checks BCL province wide, buddy at work has it but I don't know the name of it.

What PaulB is posting matches my box but the second case I bought for a friend has been different for the first 3 days.

I thought it was better than the first Porter - the Maple one…

Yeah I could get on board with that. Neither were too notable but I enjoyed the second one well enough.

Picked up 3 of the just-released Parallel 49 Braggot, plan to crack a bottle Friday though may give in tomorrow. It's a barrel aged beer / mead blend. I like the detail of having the cap waxed with beeswax for the full bee effect (mead is made with honey).

Speaking of waxing, I tried doing my own batch at home and it turned out pretty good.

Phillips advent day 4 [HTML_REMOVED] 5

Boxcar ESB yesterday, Zeus IPA today.

Boxcar was good but not great, there are better EBS's out there with a little more body but still really enjoyable.
