Sorry to hear this. Decades ago I had a dog who lost the use of his back legs. It was too long ago to remember the reason why. Was not due to an accident but some medical thing.
Ive gotta a killer bass line and drum beat that needs lyrics.....
Just got off from work, long hot day at the cemetery. Need to swing by the grocery store.
But first this one is going in the shower with me. No shame.
This beer is one that I wish was available more than once a year. But I’m not complaining that it’s available only once a year.
How did I miss this post from @Shanex? I know I liked it, but please forgive me for not thoroughly reading it. I love you!!!

I'm a walking encyclopedia. I will show you and a lot of these new age rappers what a real "freestyle" truly is. If I'm wrong, a case of beer of your choosing is on me. Haha! It would be so much fun. Just having a conversation would be nice.
Ponysaurus Rule No. 1 Don't Be Mean To People
Very tasty farmhouse ale.
Now more than ever. Leon
I do not want to get political either because sister #1 and I do not speak anymore because she hates my political preference.
As a dad and a grandpa what saddened me was to see a young mother with her three week old baby mingling in the midst of a lot of folks at the Saturday rally. No one around her wore masks nor did she or the baby (it might have been risky for a baby to wear a mask). I would never place a baby at risk under any circumstance. I am not a doc but I do not think a baby’s immune system can fight off the virus. I pray it all works out ok.
End of my rant. Time for another beer.
I think I have a Schlitz in the fridge and I forgot it was Monday. @TheIPAHunter
Phase Three Strawberry Chantilly milkshake IPA. They did a phenomenal job incorporating the strawberries, lactose and vanilla with the hop bill. Wonderful drinking experience!
Damn, that looks good! I have not seen anything other than Anchor Steam around here in ages - their distro here sucks!
It's funny, I suggested this idea months back and I have rarely participated. Malt liquor really used to be a go-to. I suppose I'm thankful that I elevated my game? Either that or I know my own weaknesses. Cheers!
Long Monday, beer time.
Booked our NH trip for this August, in-laws 70th anniversary (no typo). Checked Alchemist website since we usually stop there. Curbside pickup only Wed-Sun, order up to 48 hours prior, Heady limit....3 cases used to be 3 4-packs, oh hell yeah.
Valhalla. A DIPA brewed by Triple Crossing. Got eight on Friday. Down to three now.
Beer number two today, Freedom of Expression by Revolution Brewing. Revolution first released this offering two years ago. It is an excellent session sour ale with strawberries & rhubarb clocking in at 4.5%, and I am grateful to see it each summer. A portion of proceeds in their Freedom series sales go to worthwhile causes.
Love the art work as well on this one, as I do with most Revolution releases.
A community is only as strong as people are allowed to freely express themselves. The recent censoring of quality beer discussions have been concerning, to say the least.
It is important all of us support brewers like Revolution, and other organizations who support free speech and an open discourse.
Thought it would be fun to drink Nimble Giant and Sip of Sunshine back to back. Cheers, Advocates!
I haven’t had anything from 18th Street in a while. If a brewery puts Mosaic hops on a flip flop, Imma try to figure out how to drink it.
River North Brewing Co. -- Colorado Double Strong
4.28/5 rDev 0%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
Dull, partially cloudy amber-orange body topped with a very thick and creamy off-white head. Alluring smell of ripe peach and other yellow pitted fruits; faint caramel quality. Big, juicy sweetness and prominent alcohol taste at first sip; heavy bread-like malt base; low-key hop bitterness appears at the finish. Heavy body; dense and spongy; thick and sticky; boozy warmth.
There is no mistaking this beer for a lightweight! Big beers are a River North specialty, and this particular offering makes the grade. It has a fine and complex malt base; coats the palate with warmth and residual sugars, and has a fine, comforting boozy kick. When a hop bomb or light lager won't do, and a sour or saison aren't in the cards, chances are this one will fit the bill and bring a smile to your face...
@BeerVikingSailor I never see the porter here either. That's what made me grab a six pack plus I just have a nostalgic idea of it
Time for another brew!
Sticking with IPAs today (apparently); going back to a more modern take.
Hubbard's Cave Fresh IPA
Another fresh Chicagoan going down. Daisy! Since I missed out on much of Saturday, posting my finally completed read. Interesting - and lots to inform conversations on BA in the last few months. But there are real differences, too, since that was flu and this is a Coronavirus.
Not a Desert Island choice but definitely timely. Cheers!
Splitting this with the gf as I watch her play The Last of Us 2. This is some ripe ass shit, brothers and sisters. Ripe... ass... shit... hmm? Ponder that one, but not too long. It's amazing. Cheers!
I like Bruce Hornsby. That man is an OG, as far as I'm concerned. This one is my personal favorite. I like to belt it out with the windows wide open, although not right now. It's pretty hot outside. I need a climate controlled environment. Peace...
I believe in you.
Certain Swagger @ Old Bust Head Brewery, Vint Hill VA
Your pours are so damn consistent it is extremely impressive.Whether it is Breakfast Stout, Ghost in the Machine, or that Hubbard's Cave IPA you are going to have a beautiful head 100% of the time
What did you think of the movie? I got like an hour in a week ago and haven't finished it yet. If you like that style of movie might want to check out Mid90s from Jonah Hill.
Ha thank you! I try. My Narwhal last night was a little flatter than I'd prefer; being a 2017 bottle, I should have poured a touch harder.
Just cleaned the yellow off the wife's Durango headlights, in the 94 degree heat index. Big Nose time....
So far so good. Saw that Jonah Hill movie in theaters.
A Virginia dude. Gotta like him.
Spent a few nights over the years at the Hornsby House B & B in Yorktown, Virginia. I think it was run by his relatives. Lots of historical stuff in Yorktown.
How were your stays? Would you recommend it to a friend?
Citra Squid ...
Beer time. Politics has driven me insane. The Virus has me bored. But I think I can fix it.
get down get larrrge...
I went to elementary school in Hampton and spend the majority of my childhood years living in Virginia before ending up in Ohio then Georgia.
One thing I would recommend to anyone checking out Virginia is Jamestown. Not sure what kind of breweries you will find it the area but Jamestown is a unique experience that can't be replicated anywhere else.
A wit with a slice of a blood orange.
What? No pics?
