^I wanted to make that joke for a long time now.

Made the decision that adding alcohol to my regular diet would not be wise after getting diagnosed with Celiac Disease. And yet I hang out at bars/pubs probably 2-3 times a week.

Just stay away from grain based alcohol and you would be fine from the disease perspective. Wine & derivatives, cider, perry, potato spirits, sorghum beers, ect.

Adding? Were you diagnosed quite young?
23

I didn't start hanging around people who drank socially until about that time and I felt like crap all the time and didn't drink. They I discovered why, changed my diet, and my diet is so light I don't really feel like adding alcohol into the mix.

Some real highlights in the Beer department were the "Speedway Stout" (12% ABV) and a Scotch Ale from a brewery called AleSmith.

The "Hefe Hell" and Schwarzbier from Pfungstädter

And the Islay Scotch Ale from Highway 97 brewery.

I wasn't in love with Speedway Stout, but my impression is AleSmith is one of the feathers in the cap of the San Diego brew scene that Keith speaks highly about.

For a widely distro-ed Imperial Coffee Stout, it's pretty solid, though some of the variants are really exceptional.

Went to one of my favorite breweries on Saturday and they had a cherry sour made with lactose and vanilla, so basically a milkshake sour rather than the increasingly prevalent milkshake IPA. Keith, have you seen this catching on? It was amazing so I'd be pretty excited about that trend since I've found milkshake IPAs less dependable than I had hoped after discovering them via Tired Hands. I've only had one truly great milkshake IPA from these parts, a coconut one that went with the tropical hop palate to really hit the spot.
