As it's currently 47 degrees, I just polished off a Southern Tier Choklat. After the first sip, it was chocolate milk bliss. Earler, popped the X-IPA from Flossmoor. What a fantastic day!

man that Choklat is so good. After I had my first I had to immediately trade for 3 more. I'm waiting for a good night to crack another bottle! I wish it was still 47 here. I like the winter.

I had their Oat last night and may have liked it even better!

Steve said...

I enjoyed Oat, but Choklat is just like- wow- so unique. For me.

Alpine Beer Co? never heard of it. are they in Alpine, CA? is that the only place to get it?

Steve said...

Yeah Alpine Beer Co is in Alpine, CA. (there is an alpine *brewing* company but they are in washington). You can really only get the beers at their very tiny brewery (that only does growler fills and has some stuff in bottles), as well as a few liquor stores in Alpine, and a couple in San Diego. There are a handful of places to find it on tap in San Diego as well. And that's it. They are hard to get, but very sought after by beer geeks around the nation.
