We bought a bomber of Black Butte XXIII anniversary porter that is 11% alcohol and is very tasty. I had a 10-ounce pour at Freshcraft tap house in Denver.
Full Sail's Black Gold Bourbon Imperial Stout is another bomber we had to buy, it's 11% alcohol and was barrel-aged in bourbon barrels for a full year, can't wait to try this one.
We also bought a new release from Stone Brewing, a cherry chocolate stout that was a winner of Stone's March Madness Homebrew Competition. The winning recipe was submitted by a homebrewing duo, Jason Fields and Kevin Sheppard, an additional brewer was added to the collaboration, John Trogner, who is headbrewer at Pennsylvania's Troeg's Brewery.
La Trappes has oak aged quad that looks interesting. Larry is going to share this Belgium rarity with Mix and Match, Mitch Smith and Max Wolsky. It is 10% alcohol and received an A from Beer Advocate!
When you ever visit Fort Collins drop on by at Wilbur's for some outstanding selection of beers!

I had the New Belgium's Kick a new ale from the Lips of Faith series, which was a collaboration between Kim Jordan from New Belgium and Dick Cantwell from Elysian Brewing. It is a slightly sour ale made with cranberry and pumpkin. It is 8.5% alcohol but doesn't taste that big. Larry went with an old favorite, Dead Guy Ale from Rogue.
The Red Table Cafe has it's second location at the Mayor but I can't recommend the food since we didn't eat there, maybe next time.

He used to hang out at the Spot Tavern in Jump River, Wis! The Spot used to be owned by my sister, Dana and her husband, Jon, what a small world.
Tonight is a beer and dinner pairing at Choice City with Equinox Brewing.
