The Fridge is open for business!

Holy crap, has it been that long since I posted? 

So, before we get back into more beer bidness...let's see what has been happening in the world of the Beer Fridge since the last post...
  • Tina and I welcomed Baby Levi Jackson into the world.  I am disappointed I have to wait 21 years to share a beer with him.  Who knows what we'll be drinking then (space beer?  Venus Pale Ale?), but I certainly hope he enjoys a good stout like his papa!
  • We've seen a bunch of new breweries open up
    • Il Vicino's Canteen (sorta a revival of the old tap room)
    • Bosque Brewing
    • Broken Bottle
    • Marble opened a West Side tap room
    • Sierra Blanca opened a grill/taproom in the Sunport.  Now you can suck down a imperial stout when you have 5 minutes to get to the gate
    • BJ's Brewhouse opened up in ABQ Uptown (it's a chain, but enough good taps that I don't complain)
  • The west side found two new beer paradises - Latitudes and Total Wine.  Both have a fantastic selection at really good prices. 
  • Total Wine took over the old Morgan Stanley office - now all of the alcohol that was there is just out in public and not hidden in a desk.
  • Beers we get in Nuevo Mexico now...
    • Green Flash
    • Pike Street
    • Clown Shoes
    • Alaskan

So, I'm taking any special requests!  Let me know and I will hunt it down to try it!
