    Was patiently waiting for one of the morning crew to open things up, but couldn't wait any longer. Still clearing late Summer beer from by stock. I don't see one of my favorites I cracked open this morning on the 2021 Founders Calendar yet, hope that is rectified before Summer. It's a great 15 pack I look forward to each year. Still holding up well, drink beer fresh or keep it refrigerated.

    Came across these clips from a youtube wormhole late last week. Cyndi's voice is divine, sounding and looking incredible decades after breaking big in her 30s (concert recorded in 2004).

    Today is a day to cherish the great beers and musicians, young and old, may they always hit the high note forever!





    2:30-3:00 is beyond money, the falsetto drop at 3:00 may be even better than the OG recording.

    Good day BAs! Another cool morning with enough overnight snowfall to just notice - we must have accrued nearly 2.5 inches over the last week. My brother in TX has electricity again (has had, for several days) but still no water because his pump and lines froze/broke. We'll do some severe winterizing the next time I'm down - he'll plumb and I'll wire. I'm getting twitchy enough being under COVID house arrest that I feel a long drive coming on - it won't hurt to pick up some TX brews for BIF 13. Today's New Breakfast Beer:

    Another OK variant of BBB, but doesn't justify the price point. Rating 3.7. rDev -10.4%.

    Early nominee for best beer name of 2021, Anchorage’s “Tired But Wired”. Truth!
    Oh and the beer itself is fantastic, coffee provided dark depth to go with the oak and coconut

    Good morning @ChicagoJ, I can see it’s still pretty much winter in Chi-town whereas we’re currently enjoying a bit of an early spring here in Western Europe. Mild temperatures and sunny mostly... can’t complain about this for now...

    Duvel, BIG Duvel is in my tulip today. Later this week we are going to celebrate my mother’s birthday, then visiting the grandma who’s a bit unwell and then a few friends coming over and start more renovation work this time in the kitchen. Keeping busy cannot be a bad thing.

    Cheers all!

    What an amazing day it was yesterday. We don't get these kinds of bluebird days often down here.

    And today, a humble breakfast burrito, cast-iron crisped lunch meat...salami, turkey breast and then the egg got fried in the salami grease. Yum. May have browned the egg a little too much, but it was still good.

    Troegs Perpetual draft to go with all that greasy yumminess.

    Happy Monday, as far as that is possible.
    Lots of work to accomplish so will do one light a.m. one, and then likely see you this p.m.
    Chuy, here, my oldest, noting the last of the Hopslam - mournfully pushing the cap around.
    Otherwise, TRVE Death Ripper (brown ale). Straight from the can.
    Cheers... have a great day.

    Have a good Monday. Came back after bw3 and passed out last night. I got a multimeter and a Philips screwdriver from Walmart to take my Amp apart. I want to find where the noise is coming from. Bad capacitors likely. Will research it. We are watching cooking videos again.

    Sharing a Sam smith's with Julia. Amazing stuff as usual. Not too sweet. Authentic flavors. This and apricot are tied for me.

    I'm starting off the day early with an Einstok Icelandic Dopplebock. It's full of malty goodness. Caramel, chocolate and dark fruits are in the aroma and taste. Who knew they brewed beer in Iceland? And they do a pretty good job of it, too.

    Me, Myself and IPA. Narcistic IPA from Uiltje.

    @Shanex I found the Dragon's Milk in a bottle-shop a 30 minutes drive away from where I live. Payed 8,40 for it. Had to rush through the shop because of some lack of time. They run a nice selection, found some Cloudwater too. Hope to go there again soon!

    Cheers all

    Keeping with the German style theme, I'm having Du Hast, an Oktoberfest/Marzen beer from Round Guys in Lansdale, PA. It's a very good looking beer. It's sweet & malty with some hops for balance. If you were at your local German club for Oktoberfest and got served this, you'd be happy.

    I'm moving on to a DDH NEIPA, Lil' Juicy from Two Roads. It's okay as a sessions let NEIPA, but it falls flat as an actual NEIPA, especially a DDH one. There's some lemon and vague tropical notes, but it just doesn't seem to push any real buttons. I rated it 3.47 which was a good bit lower than it's BA average of 3.86.

    What mountain do you ski? Just found this article, is it one of these? https://www.snowpak.com/pennsylvania/best-ski-resorts

    I didn't know PA had a bunch of 1,000 ft vertical mountains. Looks like ski areas there are similar to the ones in CT and MA, good for being outside and burning laps but you need to get into VT/NH for real mountains. Not that I'm opposed to the former, I go up the Butternut in MA about once a month just to be outside with my skis on my feet. And $25 mid week pass. Love it. Cheers.

    Beer related: working from home so quenching thirst with a stovepipe of DFH 60 Min.

    Good afternoon BA
    I just accepted a Monday through Friday dayshift job with my current employer after five years of swing shifts. Wife is happy. Sadly, my day drinking will suffer. I should enjoy it while I can...

    Afternoon Advocates. I’ve already shovelled two driveways twice each today, including snowplow ridges, so what more could a fella really ask for. It’s still coming down hard, but I’ve cracked a beer, so anything else sits until the AM.

    Sitting in the workout room contemplating weights, but it’s not happening. Starting with a very refreshing Raspberry Dry Hopped Sour. Cheers. [​IMG]

    Texels Storm Bock 2017. A beer from the Dutch Frisian island called Texel.
    Going there in March, when all goes according to plan. While making some preparations, now is a good moment to open this bomber.

    Second beer is another Sour from Collective Arts. This style is going down real easy today. I like Sours, but sometimes they’re hard work. I’m thinking of the 750ml bottle of Cascade Rose City Sour [​IMG] I had last week. You’ve got a fight on your hands to get through one of those. Cheers.

    Beautiful day, the first over freezing so just returned from my first long walk in a while. One of my favorite Pilsners and beers from Half Acre.

    Oh my gravy. Heady Topper is one of my all time favorites. There are so many fantastic Vermont beers. Fiddlehead is another that I just can't get enough of.

    Wow, a Colts receiver who just finished his rookie year says he will not cough up his number for Carson Wentz. If a rookie won’t give his number to the starting QB, there may be respect issues for the new guy.

    Beer two went down in the snap of my fingers. Sticking with Collective Arts, but their new IPA this time. Cheers. [​IMG]

    Just got some big and exciting news about where I'm moving next! My partner and I are very excited, and already started looking at homes. More importantly, we can really nail down our wedding date now. :slight_smile:

    All in all, I'd say it's a pretty Glorious afternoon. :wink:
