The names are endless entertaining and I the artwork fantastic. But I could no more drink Habanero Sculpin than I could eat bacon ice cream. Sounds like you had a little trouble getting through that particular selection! Do you have any idea how many you've taste-tested so far?

Sorry for that extra "I" in the first sentence. I don't know how long I'll have to live before I consistently remember to proof my comments. Arggh.

I have the exact records at home, but off the top of my head, I'd say 650!!!! It's risky business; some beers I enjoy and others I only tolerate. It's quite a hobby!!!
