LH Milk Stoudt is manna.BTW congrats to utee 94.Dec. 2005 he gave birth to the Beer Thread on the CFN Board.Waiting for the Horns to take down Pretty Pete & the Spoiled Children.Oh Happy Day
Yeah, those were the days.  Now I'm just praying Texas can eek out a 7-6 season with a win in Mattress Mac's Galleryfurniture.com Bowl.  
Anyway, this week my buddy Bald Greg and I are hitting a different brewery every day, leading up to our annual Liberation Day (last day of work before Christmas break).  On Monday we went to Austin Beerworks.  Yesterday was Oskar Blues (they opened a branch brewery in Austin about 1.5 years ago).  Today we'll be hitting up two-- Hops & Grain AND Zilker Brewing.  Thursday is probably Celis, and we'll finish up Friday with Live Oak Brewing, of course.
Speaking of milk stouts, Zilker makes a really terrific Coffee Milk Stout, not overly done on the coffee so it's just right.  And Celis just brought out a Coffee Belgian Dubbel that is promising based on its predecessor that I tried about a year ago.

Just finished big bottles (22-25 oz) that I got from my work secret Santa of 3 Floyds Alpha Klaus (better version of Alpha King) and Goose Island* Bourbon County Stout, while watching Michigan basketball annihilate Alabama A&M.

*Yes, Goose Island is still a sellout, especially with so many other great microbreweries in Chicago, but they still make some good small-batch beers like this.

Goose Island is still good.  And I don't have a problem with "selling out" in general, I'm a true believer in pure Market Capitalism after all. :)

The problem I DO have with the macro breweries is that they actively engage in anti-competitive behaviors, like working through lobbyists to obtain extremely tilted anti-craft legislation in their favor, as well as tying up the raw ingredients and commodities in order to force the prices up for their much smaller competitors (or remove their sourcing entirely), even when they don't need those materials and have been known simply to dump them.

Those behaviors are why I typically choose against drinking anything owned by the macros, even if it's one of the craft brands they've bought up over the years.

I have a dream. I have a dream that one day, I will check the contents of my grain bin prior to brewing so I don't make an unintentional hoppy wheat ale instead of a blonde. I have a dream that one day this unintentional hoppy wheat ale will be delicious and quaffable, despite the last minute recipe changes. And I have a dream, ladies and gentlemen, that one day we will be judged NOT by the color of our worts, but by the contents of our kegerators!

I'm nearing the end of my Dry January.  One week to go.  Gives me plenty of time to decide what my first beer will be next Friday.  It looks like it'll still be pretty cold, so something dark and malty would be my guess.
