any LA folks have brewery recs for LA area. Specifically around Anaheim, Palm Springs (will be there later this week). Can get around but don't have a lot time to travel all over

Utopia? I wasn't a fan of it at all. Plus it's crazy expensive.

Buddy of mine grabbed a bottle of Utopias a few years back, said it drank like a sherry. ABV around 28%, price point too high to catch my interest. I got a small taste at a OH line share years ago, not really memorable.

I'm turning a bit of a new leaf, paring down my cellar stuff and cutting back on cans as well. Grabbed so much fudge over the past years. Past few nights have been:

BCBS 2017 Northwoods - this was ok. Some almond, some sweetness from blueberries.
OH Pistachio Vanilla Cake - delicious, both adjuncts came through, pistachio on cleanup.
BCBS 2018 Vanilla - exactly as it says, mad tasty
BCBS 2016 Coffee - holy fudge was this enjoyable, straight 5/5
Perrin BA No Rules - enjoyable

No Rules by far is my all time favorite for a thick, sweet tasting dessert beer with a punch.

I waited in line 5 hours last year for 2 cases of various years.

Yeah your description is spot on. TBH it paled a bit for me in memory compared to the first time I had it. Didn't get the individuals of coconut/cinnamon/vanilla but more of an overall combo. Def sweet but not overpowering, and 15% is just right for that nice warmth.

I grabbed these bottles a few years back at whole foods, they were there and I was there so I made it happen.

Obligatory how is hopslam this year post. I haven't grabbed it in a few years but was thinking of giving it another go this year since it's started showing up here.

They were doing free samples of it at the grocery store today. That should tell you something. Easy pass.

Other Half had their 6th anny this past weekend. I lucked out with a bottle of each of the BA stouts, and mad cans. Also this happened :
