    Then next door to a newish sandwich shop. Cheba Hut. Interesting take on some sandwiches, this is the BLT, and a Saint Arnold Art Car IPA. Pretty good.

    The best compliment I've had recently was playing against a high school team where they said you have the best forehand we've ever seen. I need to quit drinking beer. If I'm going to do this tennis thing again, I need to leave all of this shit alone. That said, I'm going to listen to another song I love. I'm happy.

    A Monument to All Your Sins, a New England DIPA from Two Villains Brewing in Nyack, New York. I understand this brewpub may be closing imminently due to business issues. I hope that doesn't happen - or if it does, then the brewing operation survives - since this is a really tasty ale. If any BAs from Rockland County know any scuttlebutt, then please post on the NE forum of PM me. It would be a real shame to lose this brewery.

    We're getting a sneak preview of Fall this weekend with these 60 degree temperatures. I can finally drink something dark and feel the cool breeze coming through the windows.

    Phantom Canyon Brewing Co. -- Casual Explosions
    Helles bock
    ABV: 6.8%; pouring temperature: 42 °F; crowler info: canned 08/08/22

    3.95/5 rDev 0%
    look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

    Noted as a 'pale lager'(as well as being described as a bock beer) on the brewery's web site, this is a nice smelling and tasting strong lager.

    ...battling some ragweed allergies today, but a nice, heavy, local rain has helped clear the air...

    Well for those folks who don't know the story - like myself, here it is.

    https://whyy.org/articles/fire-jims-steaks-south-street/

    Jim’s Steaks owner Kenneth Silver told NBC10 Saturday that the city’s licensing and inspections department does not believe the building on South Street is a total loss and that its structural integrity will be able to be maintained.

    Jim's Steaks first opened in 1939 in West Philadelphia, but the South Street location opened in 1976. The building on South Street was originally constructed around 1900, according to city property records.

    “We are definitely going to be back for year 48, so just give us a break," Silver said standing outside the boarded-up restaurant. "Visit the other great establishments in Philadelphia. There are so many of us. We’re one big family and we’re one big cheesesteak community."

    A great place with really good steaks. A fire ripped through the place. I’ve had many steaks there. An iconic place in Philly on South Street. Sounds like an AC or ventilator fan may have malfunctioned and sparked the blaze. Fortunately no one was hurt. Hopefully they can reopen. Something like this can devastate a small business.

    In my town here in the Boston area a family owned bakery that had been in business for decades was wiped out when an oven sparked a blaze. They weren’t able to reopen and had to shut down.

    Savor those local owned / family owned restaurants and establishments.

    Just read the WHYY story (that’s the local PBS affiliate in Philly) that Larry posted. 100 firefighters were brought in to battle the blaze. 100!

    That area of Philly is densely packed old buildings. They just have been terrified of the fire spreading.

    Couldn’t reach my beer earlier. I did figure it out. Haven’t had this one today… tastes like a very good, well, you know. West Coast IPA from Green Flash.

    Well the rain blew thru and dropped the temp to a really nice 80. It also shows that I could spend about 10 hours pressure cleaning the pool cage. Anyway, a surprising pic of a Jai Alai on the pool deck....

    After a couple of fruity NEIPAs, I'm craving something hoppy and bitter. Ironically, we had better Foreign Objects can distro a few years ago but thankfully the new tasting room is close enough for fairly frequent excursions and these hoppy ales age well. Cheers and have a great week, everyone!

    Decided to crack this since its my Birthday.
    And holy crap this is damn good.
    Cocoa Colored beautiful head.
    Cocoa powder on the nose as well as espresso, vanilla and spices.
    Head lingers as the 14% abv lurks but never overpowers. Nice bourbon and oak with white pepper, sweet black cherry, coffee, caramel. Just layers of incredible dark fruits, licorice and spices. Body is lighter than you would think for a dark fruity beer. Still medium but astoundingly drinkable.
    One hell of a good beer. Feeling some bourbon burn now. The buzz is real.
    Fantastic brew IMHO. Im not a huge pastry stout guy so this fits the bill with all that character and not the sludgly body. Loved it.[​IMG]

    At the beach, drinking a somewhat-local IPA from Burnish Brewing in Salisbury MD. My first (and quite possibly my last) from this brewery. Astringent, bitter, lots of sediment, and not a whole lot going on flavor-wise. But hey I'm at the beach, and it's drinkable, so I'm not complaining.

    ...this day was so-so score-wise (too many 'M's primarily), but the bulk of the attempts grouped nicely...used two different loads, so sighting adjustments were a big factor...still, a fun time...
