So few childhood heroes stand the test of time. I don't even remember when I first fell in love with Leonard Nimoy, it was so long ago. Yet I love him still, and mourn his departure. I've had this stein many years, but never filled it until tonight, to toast the man who was an actor by trade, and an artist and gentleman by nature. #llap in our hearts

And this, my friends, is how we go from "I've been excellent with my budget this week - I'll treat myself to one beer and a bite to eat!" to $100 sucked out of the checkbook.

I enjoyed this at first but then i quickly got reminded why I am not a fan of barley wines.

Nocturnal person's Thanksgiving is just getting started. Enjoying a Shaman's BBL porter from Atwater while I decide what kind of cornbread goes best with duck breast

Date night with my best girl and a Brooklyn Blast. Mild for an imperial IPA but great nose and flavor.

Thanks! She loves going out for beer, but she prefers stouts.

So new it doesn't have a name yet! Preview cask of +Big Boss Brewing Co​'s new sour made with Yates Mill cornmeal. It's delicious - not too tart, nice apple notes. Official production release comes in late Feb or early March, with a fundraiser for Yates Mill Associates!

Got my hoppin' john, got my hockey on TV and got this delicious Smoking Wood from The Bruery ("contains alcohol" indeed!). There's an old tradition that whatever you do on New Year's Day, you will do the rest of the year. I certainly hope so.

Nice little haul from the bottle shop this weekend. Only slightly disappointed that the first one I opened (Erie Derailed black cherry ale) is something I've tried before - only slightly, because it's delicious. The Troegs are the beer club monthly selection. Everything else is just random stuff that sounded interesting as I start to the right of the cash register and work my way around the shelves.

It's National Sour Day - where's my badge? At least I get to drink this delicious Hidden Pipe Porter at Raleigh Brewing. It's fantastic - neither the funk nor the Jack Daniels barrel-aging overpower what is, fundamentally, a really good porter.

Waiting out a storm at Sam's Quik Shop with a Saint Bernardus Extra 4. This would have been perfect earlier today, but it's fine now, too.

Oh yeah, I should share this before it's gone ... apple brandy barrel-aged impy stout at Trophy. Sweet and smoky.
