    I had some friends over, they brought warsteiner. So I had one. and a glass of sangria. followed with a can of jai alai because i'm trying to figure out what kind of beer my friend likes that isn't 'run of the mill' and needed him to try it to see if he was a hophead and didn't know it yet. no go. anyways, now there is a bottle of pliny that i'm debating getting into. I haven't had one yet, the order just came in yesterday. was going to wait for a friend, but I am not sure if I should wait. there is a second bottle after all...

    Pleasant surprise. I found a Velvet Merlin in the back of the fridge.
    Was ready to open it when I decided to go with another Flower Power.
    If I have another, it will be the Velvet Merlin.


    Now listening to the Lords of the New Church.

    Congrats!
    That's the route I wanted to take but my wife insisted on having her family at her wedding so I had to go traditional.

    That's all right. I like her more than I dislike her family.

    Their job is to make the life of the guy trying to dick their daughter as miserable as possible until she gets hitched. Trust me, having been a teenage boy and now the father of a teenage daughter, I've been on both sides of this equation. But if you really love her, it's worth it. Have a safe and happy New Year with your girl!

    Well, I'm just starting the expansion, I'm more of a Mage than a warrior... Sorry had to!
    I like it. It smells delicious. Smooth. Very well balanced. And I realize that by saying this, I'm putting myself out there for ridicule, tar and feathering, etc... But I honestly would prefer to have a bottle of 120 if you put a gun to my head and yelled 'pick one!'
    Not to say that Pliny isn't a very good tasty beer. But in all fairness I'm still having that first tulip slowly so I can try it at several different temperatures. As it warms more I'm enjoying it more (not a surprise)

    After drinking some homebrews and Zombie Dust tonight, I decided to have a Matilda bottled 9 months ago. Haven't had this in forever. Holy shit is this delicious. Brettanomyces of any strain is officially one of my favorite things now. Light funk with tons of fruity complexity. This is impressive. It is time to infect one my own brews soon.
