    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Phase Three Strawberry Chantilly milkshake IPA. They did a phenomenal job incorporating the strawberries, lactose and vanilla with the hop bill. Wonderful drinking experience!

    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!

    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.

    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

    [​IMG]

    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...

    Back.
    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!

    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...

    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. :slight_smile: My Narwhal last night was a little flatter than I'd prefer; being a 2017 bottle, I should have poured a touch harder.

    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.

    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.
