I had a Belgian Gruut Amber that was great. If I could get it locally it would be my go to.

Not familiar with that one, but I'll try anything Belgian.

The zero visibility IPA was freaking delicious. Also had a chocolate nitro Stout and calypso IPA. I know the owners so I'm a little biased but damn these guys know what they are doing. They only can the golden lager and big house IPA right now but if anyone is ever around Port St. Lucie it is definitely worth a stop to try their beers.

Total wine and beer find. I’ve never been able to find it there in the three times I went but I finally asked someone and they said it was alphabetical order. I still have a 1/2 litre bottle of the original Czech Budweiser I got while in Germany and a Brugs Tripel Bier made by Straffe Hendrik from Belgium.

Solid rye.

I think it is hard to find good Bourbon. The special releases never hit the shelves and are scalped for several hundred dollars. The next tier is intermittently stocked and not what they used to be.

There are a lot of good ryes.

It wasn't the rye, it was the drink, made with Bulleit... and absinthe.

Just made my own sazeracs... apparently, adding simple syrup, peychauds and absinthe to rye turns it into kool-aid.

Sazeracs are OK as a change of pace. You shouldn't put much of the other stuff.

Cochon in N.O. had a not too sweet drink that I liked with rye, a healthy splash of apple cider vinegar, angostura, and maybe a couple drops of simple syrup

Oh, yeah... a bottle of Elijah Craig is on tap for the weekend... thanks, blue!

If you bought it from a store, that's still not real absinthe. That's not legal to import into the US.

You're one of those that think "real absinthe" is a hallucinogenic, aren't you?
It's not. That was a narrative pushed by the temperance movement. There is no proof that it makes you anything other than drunk. Granted, the stuff you get here is thujone-free, but again, no real proof that thujone gets you high... it's a myth.

No. The supposedly hallucinogenic absinthe was different in the 19th century than the recipe today. I believe they also added something else though that was the true hallucinogenic property. Opium? At one point I'd read it was something poisonous like arsenic. Can't remember now.

But the effects of the European absinthe with the thujone are, while mild, noticeably different than standard alcohol.
