Eh, I don't have to be at work for another seven hours.

But, I guess I'll have to stop at the liquor store on the way home tomorrow, to.

Hey, Phil, what beer should I pick up?

When you hit 40 and have to be at work in seven hours, you will be sleeping.

I should be sleeping now... but, if I leave just one beer in the fridge, it will serve to only piss me off. So, I might as well finish it.

Really? I had no idea. When I go to someone's house for a dinner or something, I generally try to grab something in the 20-25 dollar range assuming it'll be the "Budweiser of wine"... something that shows a nice gesture, but not much else. I don't know enough about wine to do much more.

Nah usually something that is $20-25 is something only some of the more harcore wine drinkers only will notice. Wine is one of those things that diminishing returns sets in pretty heavily. Most of the stuff around 10-20 can be damn good if you pick it right. Its not like a bottle of single malt where the expensive shit is much better.

But that one lone beer serves as great motivation to get more as fast a possible. Sunday morning lone beers really suck tho.

Not everywhere, but I've found it at most trendy liquor stores. It's a french canadian brew. Incredibly tasty stuff that will knock you loopy pretty quick. Discovered it at a bar in downtown Fort Worth 4 or 5 years ago.

A 750 mL bottle of beer?

I'm so used to 12 oz bottles. I guess I could give it a shot... if the liquor store has it.

Actually, no. Though that would be the logical choice. I spent a shitload of time in there. They might have it.

I don't recall the name of the place I got turned onto this stuff. Though, I believe it was across the street from Texas de Brazil. More of a nightclub type place rather than a pub. It had three different stories.

I don't know if I'd consider this liquor store "trendy". I consider it nice... with a wine dept that you don't find in most liquor stores. It's not in a part of town that would cater to yuppies or anything.

But, they might have that. I'll look tomorrow.

It doesn't come in a 6 pack. You'll need to search the individual bottle section. I'm trying to come up with something else you might like....

I kinda like Blue Moon's wheat brew and they'll probably have that available considering your proximity to Denver. That finishes incredibly well, especially for a Coors affiliated product. You can rarely go wrong with Siera Nevada Pale and that's available everywhere. New Castle Brown Ale is incredibly popular with people who are expanding from their domestic beer rut. I used to love it until I ran across a bottle that had been skunked. That's the problem with those clear bottles.

We only have two liquor stores here in Agusta and there is no way in hell the'll have that beer. I had to go to the locked freezer with armed guards just to get the BLVD.

Wow - this website also publishes distribution info.

If you like the La Fin Du Monde, you'll also like Trois Pistoles made by the same brewery:

Yeah, they've got the single bottle beers in the same general section with the other "fancy" beers. The ones that move better (I assume) are in the cooler. I'm not just now expanding from the domestic "macro brews" I just like to have the more esoteric stuff every now and again. I'm just as likely to grab a twelver of Schlitz next weekend. I'm weird that way. I was hoping they'd have the Shiner winter brew there... when I got the hair up my ass late in the day to pick up something different, I searched online for winter brews and it sounded tasty... but, alas, no luck.

Sierra Nevada makes a winter ale. I do not recommend it.

Also, Arrogant Bastard Ale is a bit of a novelty item, but it is a very good Ale. Same story, you'll find it in the singles area.

I've had that before. There used to be a bar in Tempe called the Timber Wolf that had over 100 beers on tap. Arrogant Bastard was one of them.

I got a taste of that from Phil at B5 one time and thought it was pretty good. Bought one later when I was in Vegas and damned near spit it out at the bartender.

I guess it's like any other beer and depends on how fresh it is, but when it goes bad it's some nasty ****ing stuff...

Well, I suppose next time I decide to follow one of your recommendations, I'll ask about how much it should cost so I'll know if the liquor store is bending me over.
