As some of you may have noticed I took a couple weeks off, but that didn’t stop me from indulging in a few beers. The most memorable was an exploding bottle of Hitachino Nest XH. I pulled this out of my cellar when I decided to have a personal tasting of some barrel aged beers. Normally a bottle of exploding beer would really piss me off, in this case it really pissed me off, why? Because it was so damn good.
