Mikkeller 1000 IBU

March 8th, 2011

I just picked up a growler of Mikkeller 1000 IBU from CBX.  I’ve had it in a 375mL bottle before but never a half gallon jug.  If anyone reading this knows me, I can’t sit and drink this one solo.  It’s in the refrigerator.  First person to ask if I still have it, I’ll pop it with.  Not before noon though.  Better yet, not before 3.

Bomboras in Hilton Head

February 21st, 2011

I just finished installing a 20 tap system at a new bar in Coligny Plaza in Hilton Head, SC.  Included in it was a Grinon Bottoms Up beer filler and Chilldisc setup at the bar.  They plan on serving a nice selection of craft beers and a couple of macros.  They’ve also dedicated a spot for FreeFlow wines at the bar as a future addition.  The design is nice with an awesome granite bar and walls that feature a metallic paint that will oxidize and change colors over time.  They aren’t open quite yet but plan on being open within the next month.

Allagash Interlude

February 3rd, 2011

I just had one of these beers at Closed For Business.  I hadn’t had one since last years and was blown away.  It’s frickin’ delicious.   I think it’s their Belgian style Triple aged in Pinot Noir and Syrah barrels.  It’s very winey.  I’m going back for another…..
