Went hunting for Founder CBS, didn't find it but did get some Bourbon County and BA Ten Fidy.

Sitting at Paradise Brewing in Cincinnati right now, enjoying a pecan pie kolsch. 

The best new beer I've had recently was Pennsylvania Tuxedo from Dogfish Head. Tastes like a Christmas tree, but in a delicious way.

Thanks for the reminder. I had PA Tuxedo last year and ended up buying it several times. I really enjoy that one.

Now that sounds interesting. Next time I'm in the nati, I'll see if I can hunt that down (assuming it's not a one off).

 

Had a french toast DIPA today was pretty damn good. Had a toasted Marshmellow DIPA from same brewery that I'm saving to crack with some family in Jan.

You come to Cincy often?

BTW, your post was the 500th since launch.

No, but I was there for last yr's thanksgiving. I'm from Cleveland (obvi) but have some family and family friends in Cincy. Hit up Madtree, route 50, Rheingesit last time I was there. Really solid scene.

Next time you're in town check out Streetside and Urban Artifact (if you like sours). They are smaller that the 3 you mentioned, but both are fantastic. Urban Artifact is my favorite brewery in the city.

I got a bottle of CBS on Friday hoping to get more this week as a bunch of places near me aren't getting theirs in until Tuesday-Friday at some point. A friend of mine just moved to SC and he picked up some BCBS and a few variants for me. Had a 2013-2017 vertical the other weekend. The 2014 was amazing.

A few bottles of CBS secured today.  Wife wanted to open one immediately, maybe tonight.

It's worth picking up a bottle or pint if you run across it again.

I took the day off and am out running errands. Stopped by a new brewery in Cincinnati called Fretboard. Pretty cool place with good beer. I'm drinking their IPA now, 7.1%, 69 IBUs. I would drink again.

Fat Tire has a pretty good seasonal white IPA called Accumulation.

Rotating between GL Christmas Ale, Mad Elf, and there's a brewery in Dayton called Warped Wing which I especially like their Abominator (doppelbock) and Esther's Lil Secret which is a chocolate/vanilla winter ale.

Anyone have the Platform Christmas Ale? It's Belgian-style, I like it quite a bit.

Esther?  I was dispointed, expected much more from both Brewery and style

Yeah. I like it because it's not your typical Christmas ale, I suppose.
