    Finally back from my office on campus, after reading archaeological methods for a few hours (with a waffle break at Funk n Waffles, which anyone in Syracuse (plus Guy Fieri aficionados :-( )knows is the shit).

    So, I'm now drinking some Captain Lawrence Captain's Reserve Imperial India Pale Ale, kind of as a belated birthday beer for myself.

    Sidenote, I was going to re-review this beer, but I'm not convinced this bottle is fresh enough to do it justice. Next time I can be reasonably sure that the bottle I've got is fresh-fresh, I'll write some new notes.

    Ha, ha. Guy Fieri. He directs us to good food, but this parody site is hilarious:

    http://guysamericankitchenandbar.com/

    What a fool for failing to register that domain.

    Firestone Walker Rufus with Brett. Mini tap take-over at Angel's Trumpet in downtown Phoenix for AZ Beer Week. One of the brewmasters, Jeffers, brought the keg & spoke a bit. Cool guy & top 5 beer for me!

    What you were supposed to do here is quote Winston Churchill. "I may be drunk, Miss, but in the morning I will be sober and you will still be ugly."

    There are those who are Italian, and those who wish they were Italian. My guess is you're the latter.

    Last one for the night, folks.

    Another great band. I can't believe they are probably done, but I have some great memories surrounding them.

    Bought my opener online. Cost was a touch more than a single live round, though.

    North Coast Old Stock Ale, 2012 vintage. Almost 1 year old. Sooo good, one of the styles I tend to forget but truly appreciate especially when aged.

    Fremont Brewing Proletariat Porter. It's solid. Sessionable. Kind of thin body though.

    That's Churchill? Always thought it was Groucho Marx. Great line anyway.

    Becuase of my visit to their brewery and picking their beer for my wedding, I'll always have a soft spot for their brew. The Abbey in particular.

    Yep, not Italian, don't wish I was Italian either. Your logic is lacking and quite flawed.
