    Well, BA’s, we all have things that affect us - good and bad - and I suppose that in the end, it’s all about how we react to said things. We are all different in our own way, and we are all on our own personal journey. Sure, the guy on the barstool next to you can give you his own personal advise, but at the end of the day, only you truly know you. Cheers to discovery. Cheers to whatever it is that makes you happy. And cheers to simply “being.”

    Sage advice!

    My beer tonight is Hawkers' Saison. Hawkers are from the suburb of Reservoir in Melbourne, Australia, founded by a guy who also founded the Middle East's first craft brewery, 961, in Beirut in Lebanon. So quite the entrepreneurial journey!

    The beer is quite nice, very dry and refreshing.

    Cheers to all, and have a great weekend!

    Good morning all, some good and some bad indeed.

    Sadly have learned about the passing of an old friend and then colleague of my mother this morning, she also became a friend for me as I was growing up. Last time I could talk to her was on the phone while she was hospitalized. Apparently she died in her sleep.

    So I’ll raise a toast today to her; Christiane T.

    And a homage to her one last time here on BA, photo from a couple of years ago sharing something she also enjoyed: a Belgian blonde:

    Happy Friday! Got the day off. Just exercised my right to vote in the GA primary. Starting with an Ironshield Lorelei Hefe. Very tasty. Then headed to check out Good Word Brewing. Never been there, so looking forward to it. Cheers!

    Sorry for your loss, @Shanex.

    Jr has his last school concert of the year this afternoon, so I’m working from home today and hoping the baby brings me good luck on this Friday the 13th.

    Outer Light Brewing Co. -- Whiskey Business
    Sour ale aged in whiskey barrels with lemon and cherries addes
    ABV: 8.5%; pouring temperature: 42 °F; canning info: none seen
    Source: @Roguer (BIF #15)

    [​IMG]

    4.29/5 rDev +0.5%
    look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

    Medium amber body topped with a thick, frothy head; splotchy patches of foam stick to the glass. Gentle fruit aroma; grape, orange and lemon; very light wood mustiness. Very tart and juicy taste; lemon drops and sweet cherries; touch of whiskey in the background. Medium body; acidic and mouth watering.

    This outstanding sour ale exudes mouthwatering goodness. Yes, it is sour but not extremely intense. The whiskey barrel aging is pretty low-key yet does provide a bit of offset to the lemon and cherry character. Well-crafted and very approachable.

    Hello Advocates! Great to be here! Thanks @RaulMondesi for todays thread. The past week has been chaos for me. Goofus Interuptus daisy chained all week. Lost electricity Wed night in a storm for 19 hrs. Came back on yesterday at about 5:30. Then internet & cable were out for 12 hrs in yet another bad storm last night. At least all the contractors are done, we got rain and my little gas generator was perfect. No loss of fridge/freezer items because the house can run on gasoline! So, to usher in this Friday the 13th today I shot hoops for 1 hr & I'm having my last Stone 25th Anniversary Triple IPA. 12.5% ABV Purchased a 6pk 10/19/21 for $15.99. A very incredible TIPA. Cheers!

    2. A Troubadour Speaks German Pilsner 4.9
    3. Analog Life Dark Mild 3.6

    That Dark Mild was tremendous btw.

    My Dark Lager treatment linked here. Bottom line is this is a good beer, but I like less sweet versions including Dovetail's take on this style.

    80+ degrees here so I think it's a good time for a beer. Haven't had this one in a while and very easy to drink.

    Finishing this one off. Just put some spicy jalapeno-thai chilie Bolognese sauce in the oven for dinner. Based on @Eddiehop 's excellent recipe. I just added a chopped up jalapeno and about 6 dried Thai chilies. Going to experiment with some egg based Pappardelle to see how it affects my blood sugar vs the Barilla Protein+. They have similar nutritional profiles.

    Okay, the markets did a bounce back today and buying on the dip last night will hopefully make me some good money. Hopefully.

    Time for a starter beer.

    Today is the day! Before the pandemic we tried the four from the variant box my friend had bought, now today we try my box which has been aging in my cellar. Should be fun to compare to our pre-pandemic notes. Cheers!

    @Beer-Panda I had never seen that Hendrix clip before either. The Coors Light glass really is one of my favorites, unfortunately the mountains don't turn blue anymore so I'm never sure if my beer is cold
