A glimpse into the future!

As I sat staring into my beer fridge (Yes, there is one dedicated to beer) I realized that I am simply bored with the things that are in there. I’ve been looking at the same stuff for months now and often resort to a rum or cocktail because I’m simply not digging what I see.

I am not saying that there are no good beers in that fridge, just nothing that I’m excited about. It’s a lopaloosa batch of unorganized craft beer at best. There are beers from several countries, the best beers Colorado has to offer, sour beers in three or five different variations, lawnmower beers and Imperial beers. But really... Nothing exciting!

Poor Kahuna! I know!

But this, as with most things, presents an opportunity. Realizing a problem only serves as the first step to fix it! So as I was par-oozing Applejack Wine and Spirits the other day, looking for some inspiration, I found something so simple, so obvious and OH SO TASTY!

I found the Yeti! Well, actually, several variations of Yeti to be more specific. I grabbed the original Yeti, Oak Aged Yeti, Espresso Oak Aged Yeti and a Belgian Yeti! I have had the original and the espresso and loved them both! I have been a Great Divide fan for a long time, so I’m excited to try the Oak Aged and Belgian!

I was glad to see some Lips of Faith in the cooler as well. Cocoa Mole is one I’ve been wanting to try (not that there is anything New Belgium does that I don’t want), but the real treat of the day came when I got to the warm bottles.

2012 La Folie! Sssshhhhh! Hear that? It’s angles singing!

Completely caught off guard by this fantastic discovery, I quickly snatched up five bottles to add to the stash! OUCH!

The best advice I can give when buying La Folie is to not look the cashier directly in the eye, don’t look at the screen, hand over your credit card and try to remember how wonderful it is!

Anyway, all of this to say that we have some interesting beers to look forward to here at BKB and you know I’ll be doing my best to help you experience them with me weather you get to have a bottle or not!

~Cheers

Gotta snatch em up when you see them. Nice haul - you're going to have fun with that set of bottles. Tis the season for Yeti! I also love La Folie - it's the beer that turned me on to sour beer. Enjoy!

Buck!
