|Even Black Friday tickers recognize.|
Holy shit, what a month. The ticks added up fast this month between the Cantillon Tasting, my Birthday, and open cellar during Thanksgiving. I still can't get over the generosity that flows for the tasting group here in Buffalo.
Total beers rated for the month is 80 with 31 scoring a 4.0 or higher. Barleywines and Belgian Strong Ales lead the way with 9 ratings each. Imperial Stouts and Fruit Lambic each added 7 more.
Lots of countries were added from my mystery box and the tasting: Chile, Croatia, Iceland, Latvia, Jamaica, Russia, Sweden, and Sri Lanka.
The month was light in trading, just completed a simple trade for De Cam Oude Lambiek. I shipped a porch buster to Floriduh and return shipment will land later this week, ticks will amass in December.
