Knocking back a few beers before mnf comes, and goes. Cheap stuff with a good buzz. :beer:

buddy of mine brought back some beer from the Alchemist in Vermont.  Got to say the Heady Topper is a fantastic Double IPA but the Focal Banger IPA was just a little better, splitting hairs.  

But I would give both of these beers a 100 .  These along with Pliny the Elder from the Russian River Brewing Company, Chillwave from Great Lakes, Hopslam from Bell's and Head Hunter from Fat Heads are among the best beers I've had.  

:beer: 

Cheers!

Having a Great Lakes Chillwave right now.  :beer:

But there are a lot of great beers that just came out.

Have some Bells Hopslam and Troegg's Nugget Nectar in the fridge as well.  :banana:

Here's something to try if you have a mind to - a Boulevardier. Cousin of the Negroni, but works better for me. In a rocks glass:

50ml Rye

30ml Martini Rosso

30ml Campari

Dash orange bitters

 

Stir well, add plenty of ice and if you fancy, chuck an orange wedge in as a garnish. Watch you don't neck it too fast and/or have too many....

At age 65 I try to have a good scotch (on the rocks) several nights/week prior to dinner, accompanied by a good maduro cigar.  The OP mentioned Lagavulan which is one of my favorites, but my house scotch is Johnny Walker Double Black.  I do treat myself to a good single malt occasionally, as well as my daughters gifting them to me.

Amen to that.  I like my Scotch neat (single malt) or on ice with club soda in a tall glass with no twist.  And I love a good cigar, whether Maduro wrapped or other.  Whats your go to cigars?  Mine are Gran Habano Vintage Maduro for an every day smoke.  Cuban Montecristo #4s in the humidor as well as some Padron 1964 Maduros for nicer times (I usually keep an assortment of anywhere from 40-80 cigars in my humidor).  My regular scotch is Glenlivet.  Its only a couple bucks more than JW Black and is smoother, easier on the stomach as I think its not charcoal filtered which JW may be.  Have an 18 year old bottle of Glennmorangie as well.  

We drank a healthy amount of wine and scotch the night before Irma and had a couple Cubans to get ready.
