    Any of these good? Denise picked these up for my trip up to NoVa. I’ve had the WWW - we can get that one here

    I just had the Ariana last night and I thought it was pretty good. I passed on the Campfire Biggie S'mores just because it rated below and I already had a hand full of brews. The Sugarcane Pecan sounds mighty good although I've not had it or seen it yet.

    I know it's not on the list but here's another local that can't be beat. I hit them up every time I go to Richmond to see my son.

    Triple Crossing Beer


    Our vanilla bean laden barrel aged imperial stout returns today. A blend of various stout barrels, all purposely brewed to inky black levels designed not only to withstand the barrel aging process, but to thrive in the presence of the charred whiskey-soaked staves. Without question, this batch of Less than Alone has the oldest spirit barrel aged stock we’ve ever put together, with every barrel of the blend at 19 months old… it’s kind of a big deal.

    After maturation in barrels, the blend was moved to stainless for further conditioning on a measured, yet ample amount of our proprietary in house processed whole vanilla beans for what we sought to be our ultimate expression of our favorite stout adjunct. As we continue down our often singular and focused approach to refine what we do, our attention to vanilla bean processing has evolved to showcase the depth of vanilla in a way we’re quite proud of.

    We notice impressions of deep vanilla leading into sweeter dark cocoa dusted marshmallow filling, mocha covered dark chocolate covered cherry, and finishing with a deep burnt turbinado sugary caramel like character. 12% ABV. Available at noon today at both locations. See links in our profile for ordering ☝️

    @fpl1 I tried to order 2 but they would not allow me to. It said only one left in inventory so we'll see if I even get this one. This won't be a cheap one :(

    I think total wines in Fredericksburg. She’s visiting a friend near Richmond. Looks like we may head there for a day too.
