    Still on the road, no pictures, but have a Victory Ranch R Simcoe in my glass right now (on tap). I'd give it a fist pump but everyone in the place will shoot me a hairy eyeball and I'd like to stay incognito.

    That was YESTERDAY! hehe

    I am sure you know this but I enjoy many from everywhere in the world. I am glad to be open minded, maybe so open minded, that people may not know how to react to that. But thank you, kind sir for seeing my journey! :D

    Oh and this same place, PJ's Pourhouse was actually the first time I had my first craft beer and Italian beer in one day: the Verdi Stout. 3 years later I enjoy some great taps here!

    Just got back to the hotel after work, and it being my bday decided to start out with a new beer to me. Islands Brewing Kriek bottle 381/540, a 50/50 blend of 2 and 3 year old sour ale aged in oak with sour cherries. Very nice, great sour/acidic bite while remaining very smooth.

    Massaman curry (homemade!) and sucks. Shocking. Well, I gotta get used to sucks, because my "drug supplier" just sold me a full case of that heroin-like beverage.
    And because of several rec's, I'm going to have my first flower power this evening..... still chillin' on the frozen blueberries as of yet.....

    My own hb, bourbon oaked American barleywine. Listening to Van Cliburn, who passed today, actually becoming Tchaikovsky, as much as playing his Piano Concerto 1, in Russia, 1962.

    Happy Birthday, man! Business birthday travel sucks, especially when you could be with family and friends to celebrate. (If only our beer drinking would pay the bills instead.)

    True but I get home Friday night, though I was planning to go to the Norma release today until work changed my plans for me.

    Can't say I can compare it to the previous versions, but they must have done their due diligence on this batch since the mishaps with the prior! I'm bringing back a bottle for the old man this weekend to try!
