yeah I'm ok with getting a URL and slapping it between <IMG> tags (except with square brackets), my goal is to control the size. Interwebs said IMG=WIDTHxHEIGHT instead of just IMG is standard bbmarkdown, but it didn't work here at BF.

Right click the image and save to your computer, open and edit with any of a number of applications that should already be on any home computer.

If an image is too tall I save it resize and then upload to BF.

Modern Times fruitopia is my go to summer beer of all variations. I prefer many Alpine IPAs over Sculpin.
Drinking Prairie Vape Trails right now.
I hate PB in my beer.

As I've mentioned before I have dozens of high IBV stouts, barleywines, etc in my cellar. I just lost interest in heavy beers.
Still need to open an AleSmith ~2006 Speedway Stout and a Wee Heavy. Overaged, but my other overaged beers don't seem to suffer.

I have a bottle of Anno Unum from the 1st anniversary of Mike Hess brewing, I don't even remember the year, it's probably like 15 years old now. And I haven't taken good care of it, it's just been in my closet, getting up to 90F every summer. By this point I'm scared to open it. When I tasted it at the anniversary party though, I recall it had an interesting (but not unpleasant) aftertaste as if an orange had fallen from a tree and rotted in the sun for a week or so.

PB beers (usually stouts or porter) vary greatly by brewery. The thin watery ones suck - my memory is Belching was one of them. I've had a few that had more body that were better. I just don't like PB in general.

Many of my >15yr aged beers are either cellar temp or near freezing. A few see up to 80F once in a while. I assume the ultra cold stored ones don't age much.
I just can't open a 12% bomber and drink it all, 8oz is fine for me and I hate to pour out the rest so they age.

So sorry for answering your question.

Posting 20 images a day to the web? Who knew you were such a busy fellow?

Yeah that beer garden up in off 78 is quote awesome... and the one down at Liberty Station is quite nice too... very bold decor, interesting food. Was not familiar with the Woot's, until recently.

I will need to checkout Liberty Station.
The Woot's have been produced since 2013, see https://www.stonebrewing.com/beer/stone-collaborations
If you goto the 78 / 15 area check out Lost Abbey Port Brewing, much smaller than Stone but some awesome beers

Another killer local offering from Martin House at Ft Worth is Colombiana.
Its a Rum Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout with Cherries and Coconut arount 14%
https://untappd.com/b/martin-house-b...mbiana/3995035
I enjoy stopping at Martin House after riding the gravel river trails as it right off the trail and has a big yard with food trucks where everyone hangs out enjoy the great beers and grub

these were the only ones in the reefer currently:




pizza port travel perks (new!) ipa and their flagship beer: swami’s ipa. both west coast style ipa’s. the swami’s is arguably the current poster boy for the west coast ipa style. the other pizza port beers are good but they nail it with their various rotating ipa’s.

could post dozens of beers and a list of must have/must visit breweries in san diego county now but thinking of stringing out the thread with posts of essential sd co beers as they get crushed.

On the other end of the spectrum is something that should not exist, but I still had to try it in Copake, NY while touring.

I'd like to submit a link/photo of the beer Blood and Honey brewed by the Revolver Brewery here in Granbury, Texas (look for it in a couple scenes in the upcoming prequel to the series Yellowstone. The town, not the beer.) but the Revolver website is apparently FUBAR.

I had a couple four packs of these over the summer. They grew on me, but overall prefer other MT sours.
