Originally brewed to celebrate Toronado SF 20th Anniversary, and only made available at Toronado, I was fortunate to be given a few bottles. Going on 9 years in the bottle and still quite spectacular. A wonderful blend of tart, mildly sweet fruit and oak flavors, with a smooth finish.

Something to sip whilst doing homework.

Glad there were still bottles available this week! Love this delicious 14.3% ABV blend of Bourbon Barrel-aged Angel’s Share and Brandy Barrel-aged Serpent’s Stout! Hope my lucky ticket is drawn for a chance to obtain a full set of Tracks!
Another place you would not expect it… The High Dive…yep..just pulling stuff from our backsides. Dropped in minutes before closing..and drank it waaaay too fast…jeez.

While rummaging around in search of something to quench my thirst…I stumbled across […]
