To celebrate the launch of the new Brew Dog pub in Aberdeen, here's a shot of some bottles of their latest beer - Bashah Reserve 2009 - a Collaborative brew between Stone Brewing Co. and BrewDog . The labels were drawn by Johanna Basford.

Left Hand Brewing Company

Fast moving hands on the bottling and packaging line at Left Hand Brewing Company in Colorado. Looks like they are packaging up some 400 lb Monkey. Yum!

Ska Brewing True Blonde Dubbel

This awesome brew was being poured in the Farm to Table area at the 2010 Great American Beer Festival. A very tasty dubbel with a fun label and to be honest sometimes I visit their site just to listen to the tunes.

Firestone Walker's Reserve Tasting

Volunteers pour a taste of Firestone Walker's Reserve for excited tasters at the 2010 Great American Beer Festival. A fantastic dark ale, smooth with chocolate hints. Only a few bottles were opened at a specific time during the festival, those at the end of the queue missed out!

Alchemist Brewery

Alchemist Pub & Brewery Ouroboros Double IPA. The beer from this brewery is usually draft only, but the brewer personally bottled a few specifically for the Media Luncheon at the 2010 GABF. I was lucky enough to attend and try this amazing brew, as well as hear the brewer speak about it. If you live in Vermont, go give this brewery a try!

Stone Sawyer's Triple is a golden, Belgian style ale named after the son of one of the brewery's employees. Sadly, the boy died of ALD (Adrenoleukodystrophy) shortly before the beer was due to be released. The aim of the beer is to spread an awareness of ALD and to help find and effective treatment. 100% of the sales of the beer are donated towards the fight against ALD.

Sampling the Great Lakes Barrel-Aged Blackout Stout at a party

Sampling the Great Lakes Barrel-Aged Blackout Stout at a party. Yes, it really is as good as Beer Advocate users say.

A bottle of Sexual Chocolate from Foothills Brewing as spotted at a private Beer Advocate tasting. Delicious beer! I'll be featuring more photos from this tasting in the coming days. It was strictly for cellared, aged, one offs, limited or rare beers.

NSCS Corner Store Selections

We have many great local businesses that cater to the craft beer scene here in Rochester. One of those is Nathaniel Square Corner Store in the South Wedge. NSCS is located next door to John's Tex Mex, which also serves a great craft beer selection. Not in the mood for Mexican? NSCS serves up fantastic breakfasts and lunches. Looking for a new beer to try? NSCS regularly does craft beer tastings at the store. Follow them on twitter at @nathanielsquare. How many beers in this shot can you name?
