Starting out light on this bright shiny day
From Great Raft out of Shreveport, La. Fruity, crispy, refreshing. remember kids, always keep at arm’s length
The third in tonight’s rotation. After that, rinse and repeat. Once I get my fill, @scream will make me drink cheap white wine.
Done with trimming and cleaning up grass clippings, sweeping the sidewalk e.t.c.
I think I deserve a break! Another lawnmower beer if you will...
Lud-Lite from Bircus Brewing in Ludlow KY, the growler is actually from Crooked Handle. Sorry Bircus!
Pivoting from IPAs but sticking with collabs, Stems & Stones from Logsdon w/ Mikkeller San Diego. Syrah grapes really shine in this wild ale

Singlecut Softly Spoken Magic Spells IIPA. Wonderful soft melon fruit DIPA
Opened a 2016 bottle of North Coast Old Stock. This is amazing at 4 years. Still has great carbonation. Dark fruits, dried raisins, plums,, figs, chocolate. A bit of tobacco, and almost Port like, there are few beers I still like to age, and this is one of them. Love it.
On to Tom Waits' The Heart of Saturday Night. His ode to late boozy weekends.
I'm drinking a Sierra Nevada Flip side Red IPA.
Hoppy and somewhat malty.
An Irish Red meets a California IPA.
This is an excellent example of a malt-accented, American amber ale from a fine brewery.
One of the ones she wanted to get rid of was a ‘96 French Chardonnay. In her best Boston accent , she walks into a liquor store and says” Hey do you have any fresh wine all this shit it wicked old”
Might as well... SHELTER in place. 9% - hits like a yurt blown off its anchors in the Outer Range.
In the face. Yeah, this is naughty. Damn bitter, heavy, and liquid nectar hop gold.
That looks better and better every time you post it.
Another weird day selling to gloved people, masked people, gloved and masked people, and those other ....... people.
Glad to be home.
haha. How I wish I was back in the kitchen making people happy.
Beers going by quickly. 2X a Two Hearted.
Commodores. 3X A Lady.
Had my last two cans of Enjoy By...
Benihana didn't work out last night but I still have sake...

First nice day in a while. Kids are out hitting golf balls, I’m grilling and drinking a classic.
Woah, who's the lucky sous-chef?

An organized grill is the sign of high intelligence
Double Mosaic Dream by OH. Fantastic. Still pretty green but getting that blueberry pie taste I love from Mosaic.

Having some Fresh Grimm - Maximum Impulse:
Do you deliver with the sausage? I tip well.
Hey, I meant the andouille.
Monday Night Brewing -- Overnight Celebrity
4.2/5 rDev -0.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
Dark and opaque brownish-black body topped with a thick, sculpted, creamy tan head; broken rings of foam and some sheeting along the glass. Muted dark roast smell; sweet with a milk chocolate quality and a very mild coffee or mocha presence. Outstanding tastes; sweet coconut and milk chocolate; some roasted grain chair lurking below the sweetness; a touch of booziness appears near the finish; minor coffee bitterness rounds things out. Heavy body; dense and silky; oily; coats the palate with sludgy, sweet richness, barely broken up by a touch of alcohol heat.
This beer exudes depth and complexity with every sip. It slips up some with the aroma, but everything else comes across in a most alluring manner. A very, very fine dark ale.
...and the below tune is somewhat muted in the volume, but still kills it...
Urban Chestnut #6 Classic American Lager (brewed for Stan Musial's 100th birthday)
Whoever posted Three Times a Lady, Go to hell. Stuck in my head now, not how I wanted Saturday to go.
Definitely have to open less beers with the pounders. I'm worn out opening all these 12oz cans A 6 of 16 ouncers goes for about $5 here. A 30 pack runs between $13-$15.
It's the 77th Anniversary of Col. Jimmy Doolittle's Raid being launched from the USS Hornet to bomb Tokyo. North American B-25 Mitchell's being flown off the deck of an aircraft carrier was a new tactic for the Army Air Corps and the Navy. They made a movie about it called "Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo". Here's to the "Ruptured Duck".
Those are Wright Cyclone 2600 radial engines.
I got to meet Mr. Cole at the Reno Air Races about 10 years ago. The last Raider died last year.
A special thanks to @jzeilinger for the Hop Juju. What a fine Imperial IPA. Kind of unique in it's taste.
A little Cloud Candy in the offering this evening ..
This beer holds a special place in my heart. In 2015, this beer made me a craft beer fan (although I had enjoyed stuff like Sierra Nevada prior). When I had it back then on draught, it blew my mind with the amount of complexity of flavors it had.
Now that it's been in a bottle for the last few years, I feel it's fallen short of that first year I had it. (Consequently, I've had it a couple times on tap since, and it's definitely better than the bottle.)
That being said, drinking this in 2020 is fascinating. On one hand, I think my palate has shifted away from this, as this bottle version seems a little simplistic. It goes all-in on WC IPA, so it's sticky, sweet, and bitter. But on the other hand, it's been a long time since I've had a brew that's like this.
At 11.7% ABV, you taste it and feel it. But that's not stopping me from being on my 2nd bottle.
