Are all stores closed now that sell alcohol? I guess it isn't a long drive to nj for some of you.  

You can still buy and order delivery or pick up I believe. It’s on the state lcb website.

Any gin drinkers out there? If so, if you ever have the opportunity to purchase or otherwise imbibe this do yourself a favor and take full advantage of the opportunity. Likely the best liquor I’ve ever had. Made in VT.

Big gin drinker right here, happy to compare notes with you anytime!!! I have my favorites, and some are cocktail-specific. I have had the Barr Hill Tom Cat, which is great in a Martinez, happy to send you my recipe if you like. I have also had the “regular” (clear) Barr Hill, which has honey in it and is also excellent, although when I put it in the freezer I got some “sediment” in it, which I think may have just been the honey crystallizing...

My (current) favorite gin for martinis is Tanqueray 10. My favorite gin cocktail - probably my favorite overall cocktail - is the Negroni, and I experiment with all different gins. For Negronis or martinis also try Five Saints, made in Norristown.

Which kind of gin is it like? I like Hendryx and am especially fond of Bombay Sapphire. Okay, I almost exclusively drink Bombay Sapphire. 

Barr Hill is totally different. Not for martinis. Drink it neat, chilled/up or in a Martinez.

Old news already but I haven’t been here in awhile. Smart move, keep people locked down in their homes, without any alcohol. Enforce social distancing, but announce you’re closing the liquor stores so everybody congregates in a buying spree and waits on line together for an hour. Thank goodness my sister in NJ gave me the news, I ran out to the store Saturday night. Bought much more than I needed, but just pulled off the shelves whatever I thought I could possibly want for various cocktails (I enjoy experimenting as a home mixologist). Figured it could take weeks to reopen, plus time to restock and people swooping in and wiping everything out with pent up demand. Also bought plenty of wine for my wife and me, I know the grocery store carries it but figured they would be wiped out once the liquor stores close (and they don’t have a great selection anyway, particularly of the Old World wines that I prefer). It was a 90-minute door to door excursion on Saturday night but I was set. Ironically, my wife told me I got the “wrong” wine so I had to go back and get what she likes at the supermarket the next day LOL.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! This Open Gate Guinness milk stout was interesting, it’s not a nitro but it was smooth and delicious. Need to find out more about the relationship between this Baltimore brewery and Guinness. 
 

Had a Murphy’s with my corned beef, the milk stout as “dessert” right after, and will have a couple sips of Jameson soon just to complete the trifecta.

Only in PA? I have been doing Jack & Coke with pizza. I should have done Jack & Jack & Jack with the insanity from today.

I don’t think so, but it’s insanely good. It’s sugary but man you can put a whole bottle down

NJ liquor stores are considered essential, so maybe I will look for it this upcoming week.  Golf courses are now closed.

I still love the Yeti imperial stout, but with grass cutting season upon us again, I've been working in some Pilsner Urquell and Warsteiner

I've really been enjoying Dogfish Head Slightly Mighty. It has the body and flavor of a classic IPA, but somehow is lowered calorie and an ABV of only 4.0%.
