    I had a Deviant Dales in their new 16oz can yesterday. Tasty. Bottom of the can says "Double D's in your face. The guy who picked them up said Dave thought it was the funniest thing ever.

    OB isn't overpriced - it's dead on for what you get. Quality beer with a lot of good, quality ingredients. Love me some Deviant, too. Bout time it got packaged up for on trail consumption.

    edit - here's a more in depth article from the Longmont Times Call.

    Longmont-based Oskar Blues going back home to launch new distillery - Longmont Times-Call

    Also note at the end of the article, new packaged rootbeer named in honor of our good buddy Brian Stiff!

    "In addition to canning spirits, the company also said it will begin canning the root beer it has sold at its restaurants for the past few years. A press Oskar Blues put out said the root beer "will be named in tribute to Brian Stiff, a Lyons local and father of two who unexpectedly passed away a little over a week ago."

    "He was one of our bike riding buddies," Katechis said Friday. "He lived up in Lyons, and it's just an awful, awful story."

    Stiff died unexpectedly earlier this month at age 41. Since then, Katechis said, he and others in Lyons have been looking for ways to help his widow and two young children and canning the root beer, with a portion of the proceeds going to the family, is his company's way to do that."

    Really? Overpriced I don't think so.

    And I can usually get a 12 pack on sale for $13.99.

    Went to the Tasty Weasel for the Deviant release party. Fun times.

    Expensive?? 7.99 for six.. isn't pbr around 5.99 and its not that good..

    to each his own though, some prefer quality over quantity and some prefer quantity over quality..

    Happy about the whiskey though, love their beer so I think I will love the whisky..

    I have no idea why I had that one with me when I was at Redstone for that pic...or maybe it was Dave's. Memory fuzzy. Dave's original Dales can though.

    Other spirits?

    "In the meantime, we'll experiment with making those other spirits that don't require an aging process," Katechis said.

    So they are gonna be canning the whiskey? Weird....but in a good way. But I don't really want to have 12 oz of whiskey in one sitting very often. Even if shared, that's a lot of booze. Maybe if they can it in those mini cans like Coke comes in. That would be an awesome way to carry whiskey on your outdoor endeavors!

    Yeah, but it would be nice to be able to close it back up for storage and transport since you most likely would not be finishing it in one sitting. I guess you would just switch it into a flask, but the can just seems like a weird storage device for whisky.

    On another beer related note:

    I'm at the Total Bev at 92nd and Sheridan a few hours ago, fixin' to buy me my go-to IPA, Sierra Nevada Torpedo. It's stayed at $12.99/12 pack for the past six months which is always Good News for me.

    A guy there to buy as well, turns out he brews his own but still buys micros as needed. We get to talking, he points out three beers:

    1) Alaskan Black IPA
    2) Deschutes Inversion IPA
    3) Sierra Nevada Ruthless Rye.

    Turns out he's never had Torpedo and is buying the Alaskan so we swap two bottles from each 12 pack. I'm in the middle of the Black IPA and it's not bad, sort of like a 1554.

    How I picture canned whiskey

    How I picture canned whiskey: Perfect for around the campfire, OB whiskey in a can. Just needs some sweet mountain/sun graphics on the side.

    I'm puking already from the idea of all that whiskey..

    That reminds me of that monster flask Yeti's Joe Hendrickson has, shown here with the late, and great, Anthony Sloan.

    Well, I drink some Momma's Little Yella Pils, love me some Guiness in the nitrogen charged can, Ska Modus Hoperandi, Yeti, lots of others.

    Never said it wasn't a great product. It's just a bit spendy if you have a bunch of lush friends that clean out the beer fridge every week or 2...

    That's a great catch. Reminds me of bumping into that guy he and some other notables camping near BV drinking beers and G&Ts, entertaining some folks from down south.

    I like this beer a lot but was a bit disappointed with the price, while I love beer and have no problem spending good money on good beer, 14.99 for a 4 pack will not get this beer in my regular rotation unfortunately.. Maybe its cheaper at the Weasel or if they get it at Total Beverage?

    Haven't seen it at the Total Bev at 92nd and Sheridan. And at that price, I think I'll stick with Sierra Nevada Torpedo at $12.99 a 12 pack at that same Total Bev.

    Just grabbed a 4 pack at PJ's in Longtucky for $11.99. I'll pay that.

    Also grabbed a 6er of one of my faves lately Firestone Walker Double Jack IPA.

    the DPA from Firestone Walker is also one of my faves. If you like that check out Breckenridge 471. It's similar. On tap at OB Longmont, too (as is Firestone Walker DPA).

    Firestone does have a killer lineup. Their Union Jack IPA is very good as well.

    My new value favorite

    I never got a user opinion about this at Total Bev. Lots of "I heard it's good". It was the same price as the Torpedo so, what the heck.

    And it's great, IMHO. It's a seasonal so I'll be drinking this till it goes away, then back to Torpedo.

    Speaking of beer

    I walked over to check out a perennial Great Horned Owl nest for activity. It was a 55 mph zone. I saw a beer bottle laying on the of the road, as if tossed at that street sign right there. What brand of beer bottle would be tossed from a speeding car? Firestone? Deviant? Dogfish Head? Ah, yes, of course.

    Oh yeah, Momma Owl was there.

    OK, back to our regularly scheduled bike content.

    I just saw Deviant on sale at Superior Liquors for $11.99. Guy said they just got it in.
    Who's in charge, the thinker or the thought?

    Picked up a 4 pack of DD the other day.

    Just opened a cold DD and took a swig - Wow, this DD by Oskar Blues tastes just like the Real Double-D from the college dayz.
