    Went to Kuhnhenn this afternoon with a friend. He was basically a craft beer convert because of me recently lol.

    My friend left with a 6 pack of BB4D, and I left with about 80 bucks worth of beer. Not even upset.
    [​IMG]

    After:
    Nice fruit ale. Enjoyable stuff.
    [​IMG]

    Very good O-Fest. Nicely robust and balanced.

    Holy shit, the cork got a head-shot on my ceiling after I removed the cage. Damn nice Belgian; nicely balanced and complex

    Cheers

    Lagunitas sucks of course... "I'm a product of my environment, things that occur! Events that take place!"

    As a weekend warrior musician, that's very inspiring. It's amazing what one can do with a "looper", thanks for sharing and I really enjoyed that one! :)

    Wow! I've never seen one like that before, does anyone know what it's called? "Extremely unique" is the best description I can come up with, it's sort of like the Sam Adams glass with a major boob job. (!!!!!!!)

    I say, take comfort in knowing that beauty remains intact, regardless of recognition.

    But yeah. The Biebs has . . . a different niche in the artistic ecosystem that is the music industry. Still important, but a very different niche. (I suppose it's pretty telling that it's referred to as an industry, after all, isn't it?)

    Andrew Bird is a great musician, man! I only got into him less than five years ago, but his entire catalog is worth a gander.

    Thank God I finally finished the world class banana and clove flavors of Weihenstephaner hefe weiss bier. Onto a Hollandia euro Lager to wash the horrid taste out of my mouth, then some Dundee Irish Red. Can't wait for the tallboy Schlitz Gusto. May have to play some Stones to rid me of the memory.

    I plead the 5th on that one because the Bieb sounds like a hooting seizure and I just learned about Andrew Bird tonight for the first time.

    Righteous! I love me some Andrew Bird. He used to play with the Squirrel Nut Zippers some, if you remember them. He's extraordinarily knowledgeable of American heritage music, like 19th and early 20th century folk songs, and actually teaches on the subject sometimes. But as much as I love him, he can be a bit cerebral and a bit of a downer for me to listen to him daily.

    I'd recommend starting with Weather Systems, The Mysterious Production of Eggs, and Armchair Apocrypha in any order really, but definitely start with those three and then delve into his other stuff.

    Somewhat new to craft beer so Im sampling as much as I can from regional breweries. Hitting up Heavy Seas tonight with Peg Leg (Imperial Stout) which is just okay and Winter Storm, which is an ESB that I am really digging.

    I usually don't post without a pic in these threads but tonight I had three BMC guys convert to my three twelvelers (sp?) of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.

    I might have better details if not for the Rum and Cokes.....

    When are they releasing the 2013 batch?? :mad: Had a 2012 this past week from my cellar and it was awesome. Unfortunately I enjoyed it more than the '11 (it's all personal preference) and with alot less floaties.
