Latest Brew Hauls - San Diego part 3 & Minneapolis
Two incredible Hauls this week! John in San Diego sent a third box full of West Coast goodies. My favorite so far being the "Fred" from Hair Of The Dog in Portland. The Ballast Point "Victory At Sea" was intense, even after sampling both '08 and '09 FFF Darklord. Jon @beersys sent a weighty Minnesota care package full of Flat Earth, Surly and Brau Brothers picks. He bottled up some Xanadu, A limited version of the Flat Earth Porter with Orange. At first I was not a fan of the Xanadu but it grew on me fast. Orange is not overbearing and mixes well with the light chocolate malt. Tasty! Thanks to both John and Jon for the great trades!
