Sometimes, it is easy to forget just how lucky we have it here in Seattle. Posts like this one from the Beeradvocate.com forums remind me of why Seattle is one of the best beer cities in the US:
I now worship the foundation Bottleworks was built on. As I staggered, eyes glazed, drooling at the insane selection of beers at this magnificent Mecca of beerdom, I wept, quietly, at the wonders I beheld. Without further adue, the haul:
Great Divide 15th Anny Oaked DIPA
Brassiere de Rocs Brune
De Dolle Oerbier Reserva 2005 (Bottled 2006)
Rogue Old Crustacean 1998
Girardin 1884 Black Label Gueuze 2004
And last, but certainly not least:
Russian River Deviation (you read right)
All this while sipping New Belgium Bottleworks X wild ale.
I cannot say any more. The haul speaks for itself. Bottleworks, you have my soul. And I like it.
That post is from a user by the name of “0110×011″ on Beeradvocate who lives in California. I read the post while sipping on a glass of Firestone Walker Union Jack IPA (from CA)…which makes reading it even sweeter for some reason.
