    Saturday is the day of temptation, where base instincts are on display, seeking release in the freedom of the weekend.

    So if temptation's on the cards, temptation should be in the glass. Durham Temptation, to be precise.

    Cheers!

    [​IMG] Busy morning, but I have time for 1 or 2 before. I hooked my brother up with a keg of this new Kettlehead for his daughter and my goddaughter’s college graduation tomorrow. Need to research how good it is. Pretty special. Cheers

    Lawson's - Double Sunshine (Ruby Red Grapefruit edition)

    Expecting some beer-drinking company later on so decided to pre-game with a beer that a lot of you have been praising the last few weeks. And boy does it deserve it.

    Am I crazy to think that this is more like Sip Of Sunshine with grapefruit, rather than Double Sunshine with grapefruit?

    [​IMG] More Kettlehead and not as good as the other, but pretty darn tasty.

    Today is going to be quite an adventure! I am meeting up with some BAs at the 3 Sheeps Brewing 10th anniversary party, then will attend a Sum 41/Simple Plan pop-punk concert along with one of those BAs and my brother. I spent the last couple days digging up all my The Black Dahlia Murder CDs. I will be blasting those albums on my journey today, after the tragic death of their frontman Trevor Strnad on Wednesday. I met him once in 2008 at the venue I am going to tonight. He enjoyed walking around meeting fans before his band played. He was a great guy. It is a huge loss for the heavy metal community. I will be in the mosh pit at the concert tonight, but I am certain nothing tonight will get me as fired up to mosh as when Trevor would announce before playing this song, "This next song is about Castlevania!"

    Philly Pale Ale for that simcoe fix

    While getting tattooed yesterday I see a guy with a madbal tattoo and an H20 tatoo so I start a conversation he sees my judge hammers straight edge stuff. The dude ends up telling me he's DMS crew and he is the guy on the Hardcore Lives album cover who spray painted the store front for it.

    Cheers to that guy

    @GreenBayBA @CreightonSM @Urk1127 I spun some BDM the day I heard (well, digitally spun). Super huge loss. It's rare to see such an amazing outpouring of love from the community, too; a universally loved and now missed icon.

    Spring is in full swing. The windows are open (hopefully for the next several months), and the house is filled with non-stop birdsong. Life is good.

    A Czech Pilsner from Angry Chair? Sure, why not? Cheers!

    Lawn mowing and weed trimming completed. It's pretty warm out today - 80 degrees at the moment. I'm pretty thirsty and this NA option is pretty refreshing at the moment.

    I don't think there's a person who loved the death metal community more and I've said this for a while not just because he's passed. The collecting. The shows. Dude has multiple Carcass tattoos like a living embodiment of the scene

    Happy Sat. BA's! It's a nice sunny 80 degrees (83 in NH right now) on our way to 87. Starting lunch prep with a Magnanimous Brewing Critical Haze and it's great!

    Good morning BAs! A schwarzbier to start my morning - Common Root’s “Chasing Night”:

    [​IMG]

    Very tasty. Mild bitter roast and dark chocolate. A full review over on the Dark Lager tasting thread.

    We spent a week camping at Lake George a few summers ago, and I really liked finding the beers from Common Roots. I hope Tavour offers more in the future. Cheers and have a great day y’all!

    Another beer gift from a good friend who visited the brewery recently. I had a late night cinnamon bun barley wine from him a couple days ago that was surprisingly tasty and quite well done. Today’s Alewerks brew is a flavored blonde ale, one I saw around here but didn’t interest me.

    However, being gifted one is a different story. Once again, the additions are nicely handled it’s Shortcake, and I would’ve finished a 6pk easily had I purchased it, it’s not as impressive to me as the previous beer.
