Thirsty? What's in Bryan's cooler? Part II

Well, it's been a while since I've given you a peek inside my refrigerator. So, c'mon in and let's see what's sitting around and what's yearning to be left out. Anyone?! It's certainly a family affair lately. Let's see, I believe I've spotted a family gathering of Victory (St. Victorious, 10 Years Alt, Weizenbock, and Storm King), Dogfish Head (60 min, 90 min, and 120 min), and Penn (Dark, Gold, and Weizen). Then I see a few winter seasonals just chilling out waiting to see if they make it 'til next year for a vertical. Hm, yes, Bethlehem Brew Works (Rudolph's Reserve 2003; Rude Elf's Reserve 2004), Troegs (Mad Elf 2005), Sly Fox (Christmas 2005, joined by the Saison), Left Hand (XXXmas Ale), Rogue (Santa Private Reserve, joined by the Festivale). And, who can overlook the mighty Belgians? The Chimay family is represented well with the Red, White, and Blue! How about St. Bernardus 12.......ooooh, can't wait for that one. Is that a Rochefort 10 that I spy? Oh yes, it is! And an Affligem Dubbel to round things out from our Belgian friends. How about a few other odds and ends from Long Island (Southampton Publick House Saison), Brooklyn (Monster Barleywine 2005), Ohio/Maryland (Thirsty Dog Imperial Stout), and Canada (Unibroue Maudite). The remaining is a grab bag of Corona, Rolling Rock, and Amstel Light for our less adventurous friends. Phew, I'm tired....but, boy that was fun....and it made me thirsty. Oops, where did that Affligem go ;-)

You need to round out that collection with one of my barlywines :-)

So, um what the heck are you doing with all that beer? It must be a huge weight on your shoulders to have it all just wasting away in there. I would be happy to help you alleviate that burden.

I'm happy to have such good friends who will help out when I'm in such dire need of a friend ;-)

So, what's in your fridge?!
