Moving it was a a whole different story, becuase it weighs about 800 pounds. What Im finding that's really nice is that it's size allows is to double as a garage fridge since there is so much space leftover....

Who do y’all think has the best barrel aged program? I am going to go with Firestone Walker, I just enjoyed a 2019 sucaba last night. They kill it and honestly have some of the most accessible ba beers. Love to here everyone’s thoughts as this style is easily my favorite.

Firestone is pretty amazing. If you're ever in their neck of the woods, their bar that is attached to the brewery is an old semi truck repair shop. They have instruments on the wall that they encourage patrons to take down to play along with whatever live band they have booked. Its a really cool, fun time...

Ok so I had a very smooth IPA called Einstein's Little Favorite. Brewed with orange and vanilla and it was delicious.

I have two more. One is a 10ABV DIPA and I forgot the other IPA. I think it was also another orange flavored. Maybe orange and creme? Creamsicle maybe?

I'm not sure. I would have to double check when I get home and get back to you on that one(I'm working at the moment).

I like the packaging of the beer and your presentation (nice glass/pour). I am not familiar with the beer but I will look for it.

I'm in the Midwest, so FW is not an option for me (but, I'd be happy to run some swaps on you if you're ever looking for something that's not distributed beyond the MW).

The big names in my neck of the woods are Founders and Bell's. Founder's definitely puts out some quality BA's but it seems like they've lost a little of their mojo, recently, IMHO. Transient can be a bit hit or miss (and doesn't distribute) but they put up some great stuff.
That being said, they best I've had is probably Avery out of Boulder. Lots of variety, pretty good consistency and huge ABV's.

FW actually distributes to Il and Indiana. I agree about founders, but if you haven’t tried their new KBS with mackinaw fudge you should. Avery is great too yep.

Yeah, I've got KBS Fudge downstairs and it's solid. Thanks for the tip on FW, I'll see if family in IN can nab some for me.
https://www.brewbound.com/news/city-built-brewing-company-to-release-fibonacci-inspired-stout-series/ that I mentioned on a previous post. You can only get it around here but it is something special. Next one in the series is the 21-hour which promises to be a monster. The 13 was the first PB stout that I've gone back to and it was really great.
Looking forward to them dropping a BA version at some point in the future, though I'm not sure you can get a beer to hold up much past 20% ABV.
