    Fresh Anti Hero by the Chicago boys @ Revaluation. Gotta get drunk before the Chiefs take the field...only way I can watch them play.

    Cheers to Sunday Funday!

    I have no issues taking my time on a stout via a growler. I can handle my stouts flat so as long as the flavor maintains, which I find they do.

    Today is guitar amplifier theme day.

    I'm self medicating because my kids have been playing on Minecraft on Xbox all afternoon and I've been listening to pigs oink, chickens squawk, and cows mooing; the only thing missing is the smell - I feel like I'm living in a barn (I'm sure Xbox will figure that one out eventually to make it more realistic. o_O )

    Anyways...back to that theme beer...

    Double Jack is outstanding. One of the best Double IPAs I've ever had. Haven't had any of the others. Enjoy your line up!

    But well worth it!;) Unheralded excellence from the Great White North, IMO this is the Crown Jewel of Unibroue's beers!

    Also, props to the Hamm's sign.... memories, albeit blurry, still memories!:p

    Bears fans don't cheer for the Packers, we hope for Minnesota to fail.

    Hehe, I had no idea what a fresher Orval tasted like until recently. I was totally shocked at how big a fruitiness was there...

    Spin it however you feel, I'm rooting for a Pack blowout. Obviously that isn't working very well right now.
