    Looks like the tropical wave is passing to the north of the island this morning-still expect rain and gusty winds all day. Yea!

    Good morning, BAs! Home from duty, and ready to rock! Starting off my morning with a Stone Americano Stout.

    [​IMG]

    Some (admittedly indulgent) background on the cup in that pic. This cup has been featured here before, and I know a few people here will recognize it - albeit not quite in that state. The day before deployment, I dropped my cup leaving for work. It completely shattered. Fortunately, I had another one - this one.

    Less than two weeks in (and therefore with 22 weeks to go), I dropped this one, too.

    This cup is very special to me, and I wasn't about to go down without a fight. Some superglue magic later....

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    ...and it was good to go. (Well, kind of, anyway.)

    I made it the rest of deployment with it in that state. People were impressed at the dedication, patience, care, and certainly the coincidence - that of having a puzzle piece cup that has literally been pieced back together like a jigsaw puzzle.

    So there's my self-indulgent deployment story for you all. I am retiring my cup, but I am not throwing it away. You will never again see a beer in it, but it was a hell of a trooper.

    Cheers, BAs, and enjoy your hump day!

    Good morning BAs! Another (unusual) sunny day here in NW PA - really weird for this time of year - Clarion's Autumn Leaf Festival is apparently in full swing - no leaf changes but also no freezing rain or snow - YEA Global warming! Today's breakfast beer:

    I love me a Gulden Draak, but this guy is 'way overpriced.

    Wind and rain started about an hour ago; time to get the "bicycle" out:

    Mount Gay rum and a lager from St. Vincent, W. I. So far, the weather has been pretty tame on this part of the island and hoping "future Matthew" just keeps heading out into the Carribean Sea - Cheers!

    Spices always help clear my sinuses, hence the 2015 Dragon's Milk. But since it's still a little too hot for my wussy taste buds, some Luponic D to extinguish any fires. After all, it is "starve a fever, buy a cold another drink", right?

    Some contrasting live songs recommended to me by my twin to go along with the above contrasting beers. Sometimes nice to have someone so similar to you that they know exactly what bands you like.
    A 2013 performance

    Happy midpoint, Advocates!

    I too am a fan of pFriem, but @JouerAvecLeFeu , that must be exceptional as I have seen you post this one quite often. And with that, I will definitely be seeking it out next time I'm up in Portland. Cheers!

    A perfect day for golf. Cloudy, 55 degrees, and winds of 20 MPH. At least it wasn't raining. Despite the crappy weather I shot one of my lower rounds of the year. Go figure, right?

    Yes, they do some great beer. Have you had Blåbær?

    When it's available, I usually have one a week... It's one of my favorites.

    Gooooooood morning BA's! I hope you all enjoyed your time without me :confused:, but I'm back and ready to be at it with a vengeance :mad:! It's hump day, it's hotter than hell (here) again, and most importantly it's time for the Glass of the Day Awards!

    GotD:
    It's very fitting that in the Staff's return @dcotom brings the noise to stay atop the leaderboard with the hand painted "Lolita" weizen glass. As if the summer-like weather here didn't already want to make me do some grilling, this glass put me over the edge. Cheers and congrats!
    2nd: We all love those vintage bow tie glasses, and @goingbrokeonbeer has one from the "World's Finest Draught Beer"...Schlitz! When you're out of Schlitz, you're out of beer. ;)
    3rd: Leaving us all with words of wisdom, @Rcruz9230 's mug encourages us to really make the right decisions. I wish I had that mug during my teen years :cool:.

    Honorable mention goes out to @tasterschoice62 for a fine swirl stemmed pokal-ish glass.
    Cheers everyone, and I will see you all soon!

    GotD.

    Last night was my first day of working in this brewery. Volunteering right now but Very excited and lucky to have been given a shot at learning to become closer to my dream job. I couldnt ask for more i appreciate it so much

    Knife Hands by Backward Flag in Forked River, NJ. A DIPA of warrior, and liberty hops and victory malt. I was told by the owner/brewer that it is a toasted dipa, but not as in toasted malt. And i can see that.

    Cheers to them for giving me an opportunity to increase my knowledge and get a foot into the brewing industry.

    Glad to see the return of the GOTD!

    A fellow advocate told me, and I quote, "Yeah, for a cold no beer." But if I don't listen to my mother or my wife when I probably should, I doubt I'll listen to a fellow beer drinker. Oh well. For a first time having this one, it is powering through my dulled senses loud and clear. As usual, Bells, awesome job.

    When you have a cold you're supposed to drink plenty of fluids.
    And beer is a fluid, right?
    That's all I'm gonna say.
