    Opened a Life and Limb 2 that I'd been cellaring. Very nice, but the syrupy taste got to be a little much, so I'm blending it 1:1 with SNPA. Perfection!

    Wife surprised me with Belgian waffles this morning. Belgian themed beers for New Year's Day only seemed appropriate. Cheers!

    Just cracked open a magnum of Our Special Ale from Anchor Brewing (the granddaddy of them all) in preparation for the Rose Bowl.
    Happy New Year. Go Stanford. And in case you missed the Rose Parade* here's audio from The Credibility Gap:


    (scroll forward for parade coverage, which starts at about 4:35 - enjoy)

    "You see a fat girl with a baton, you assume she's good, otherwise why would she be in the parade?"

    Ha ha ha! Yeah, it was a very entertaining game, but the end was disappointing. Enjoy the great brews celebrating your victory over my big Blue. :slight_smile: Love this site for the fact we can huddle over some wonderful stuff and still have some enjoyable banter on the side.

    Now about half way through this.




    Not liking it quite as much as I did the first time I had it, but it's good and creates a pretty impressive head.

    First time trying this. Not very impressed as it is flat with no cabination. No date on the can but I assume that it is past its time. Cheers!!!

    deliberately NOT drinking local today. Instead, drinking one of the best from the retail store:

    It probably was way past its prime. I love Caldera when it's in its prime. I'd recommend retrying it!
