Start off a bit early -
1) Hardywood Park - Ginger Bread Stout - 9.2% - Milk stout brewed with local ginger, honey and some cinnamon added. Might be one of the best beers I have ever had. This is a liquid cookie. If they sell growlers of this I am going to get one filled. Matter of fact this is a fall beer....I am making the drive to Richmond next year and stocking up. Freaking outstanding!
2) Brooklyn Brewery - Bam Boozle - Belgain Pale Ale at 8.67% - Not bad but am ruined from what I had above!
3) Thomas Hooker - Saison - Aged in Ct. Wine barrels - Pretty nice like to see the locals step up!
4) Sixpoint - 3 beans - Chocolate & Coffee stout - Thin body, tasty & a bit of an alcohol punch!
