Ballast point victory at sea

Pretty amazing beer....posted about this a few months back.

I haven't had a bad beer yet from Ballast Point.

Scored a six pack in an unlikely place around town, pretty good stuff. Thanks for the heads up.

I tried a Ballast Point Grapefruit Sculpin last night. One of the best beers I've had in a long time.

I love the grapefruit sculpin.....been drinking those for awhile now.

Don't know why you think they are ridiculously expensive.....$14-$15 a six pack isn't outrageous by any stretch.

Had the Grunion pale last night at Row 34. They also had Mo and MANY other tasties on tap. Certainly the best ceviche I have eaten also.

$7.50 for 72 oz. of Budweiser @ 5% ABV

$14 for 72 oz. of BP Victory at Sea @ 10% ABV

Victory at sea is actually cheaper.....and which one would you rather drink?

Isn't grunion a term for the area between your sack and your sphincter ? Im not sure I find that a desireable beer name.

Having a Victory right now...not my first but just getting to say how much I am really enjoying it!

Also ran across Indra Kunindra recently and of course had to try it. It was unique and very good in a strange way, loaded with spices (tasted like what walking into the quintessential country store smells like, when I mentioned that my husband could only say "Exactly"!). I would say a bottle would be best shared by 4 than 2 people though. We both were "wowed" during the first half of our glass but quickly found the second half a bit overwhelming.

Simplify.......
