    OH Patchwork V3, it can be assumed that it is very good, and all assumptions are correct. @eppCOS FYI I'm seeing Outer Range at my local also, have you tried Ledges DIPA???

    A friend sent me some brews from damn near th’other side of the country. Figured I’d start with a GABF winner from his local favorite:

    Wren House Spellbinder reminds me a little of a few Ocelot brews, even though I think there might be a bit more adjunct in this. Clean, soft, simple but tasty with a fair hop bitterness. I’m thankful!

    Almost exactly 5 years old…10/26/16…BBA Ten Fidy stovepipe. Not quite a side-by-side to yesterday’s 2020 version, but pretty close.

    Poured cold to a tulip glass. Nose is mostly a dark chocolate malt. Half-finger mocha head that disappears quickly. First sips lack any sweetness from the bourbon or malts, opting to go hard on barrel wood presence and an astringent alcohol bite. It’s not off-putting, but it’s definitely morphed into a different profile. It’s really a sipper now, as a full mouthful would likely be too strong. Intense dark cocoa type maltiness. Mouthfeel is medium, with a lingering alcohol bite.

    Oh taboo I know, but had a happy hour cocktail after some Vietnamese. With a great classic Gin Martini. With white Vermouth, Citadelle Gin. One of my favorite cocktail spots called Johnny's Gold Brick, just down the road. Well, there was this odd jazz tune playing...wait for it, it was Bitches Brew. Yeah, I never hear my kind of music at a bar, ever, so I was happy :slight_smile:

    Just had to share that, so I could get a good Martini shot in :slight_smile:

    And now spinning Bitches Brew with a VITUS...

    Reminds me of a former life. In the mid to late seventies, I was an auditor with state government. Only beer and wine could be sold outside of state liquor stores.

    Anyway, I was in charge for three years of auditing the state liquor monopoly. This involved unannounced inventories of state liquor stores and an annual inventory and reconciliation of the warehouse.

    Holy crap! If you could have seen the booze in the warehouse. A city block of booze stacked to the ceiling as far as the eye could see. It took all day to perform the inventory. One of my favorite assignments! The least favorite assignments was having to go into the worst of the worst state prisons to do an audit.

    I agree. The words “snow” and “work” should not be allowed!

    I hope all is well on your end my friend. Still warm in Richmond.

    Good to hear. A couple of weeks ago, hired folks to get rid of the woods encroaching our house from the back and side. Now thinking about building a patio with a fire pit on the now open space. All new to me. Any recommendations or things I need to consider?

    Thanks.

    ...my first active duty station was Beale AFB in 1984...and the first aircraft I saw fly from there was the SR-71. It was during our squadron intro tour (1883 CS). The comm squadron ran the tower, and the actual tower was being rennovated, so during our intro tour, we went out to the mobile tower setup along the runway, and lo and behold, an SR-71 was launching...kids, I'll tell you, you don't know what power and thrill is until your standing literally feet away from a launching SR-71...wish I had pictures and/or video, but the memory itself is burned into my brain...the following 16-18 months, every time I saw one launch, it was like watching some kind of Star Wars space ship taking off...early evenings were especially interesting...
