    What!? I did not know it was a thing. I guess this goes on my list to grab soon, along with the Heater Allen McMinnville lager and the Wayfinder Bock.

    They made this back in May (I think) and only distributed to a few coastal towns. I was lucky enough to be in Nehalem Bay at the time and scored. The other night, Frau Brau shows up with a can courtesy of Green Zebra and my heart sank. Will be stocking up this weekend hopefully.

    And now, some more Fort George love. Cheers.

    BODHI.

    That is all.

    (After staying close to home all week, it was necessary to get out for a couple pints tonight. So we did. Nice fresh pints of Bodhizafa at a nearby dive.)

    After 2 showings of RHPS last night, and 2 showings of the Mt. Baker Film Festival today/tonight, a nice Kulshan Heliotrope. At $7/pint, I'll be moving on to another establishment after it:

    A classic. And I am a fan of wallet-friendly bars. (Which is why I hung out at $5/bodhi pint bars tonight.)

    So. Things happened. Met folks. Went to a newish bar. Car tried running me over (while I was in the crosswalk. Good luck to that idiot explaining the dents to his insurance company), but I survived.

    As it happens, a "recuperation station" was at hand. One each of Union Jack and Bohdi were were consumed, purely for medicinal purposes ya understand.

    The story of the cab ride home, well, another time.

    My life. Nothing happens for a long time, then all the things happen. At once.

    You say that, like that's a bad thing.

    Could be much worse you know. The wife and I went to a Kung Fu performance last night, and now I have Carl Douglas' Kung Fu fighting stuck in my head. :sunglasses:

    What a day... After taking the kiddos to the park, The Braus enjoyed a fantastic afternoon at Breakside where I indulged in their Franconian Kellerbier and Phantasmagoria, Smoked Helles. Later, I got my hair did at Morehouse and I enjoyed their collab with Second Profession, apptly. named Faded Love. A pretty decent Pale. Now back home with some acquired goodies from Breakside, this being their latest in the Seeker IPA series,

    I was at the the store grabbing some ticking beers earlier today, saw the Smashbang, but with an August canning date, I passed. Should I swing by tomorrow and grab one?

    Hmm.... Haven't had the Smashbang. The Love Bubbles was decent as is this one I'm drinking now. I'm torn on making a decision for you. Breakside makes phenomenal beers, but often I believe their core beers outweigh their one offs (or rotators) such as these. Anything lagered or barrel aged from Breakside is a definite go though.

    Go for a single if you can. The worst that happens is it's a "meh".

    The beer at the finish line at Silver Falls today was a quite excellent Deuce Coupe IPA from Ratchet Brewery. Pure west coast hop goodness with a nice bitter bite and no milkshake, terpenes or juice involved.

    If it's good enough for @beertunes , it's good enough for me. A Three Magnets Float On, with delicious fresh hop flavor even 6weeks in.

    You might not want to use me as a guide. I'm about to receive, and consume and review, a 40+ year old can of Billy Beer. It's the most excited about a beer I've been in a long time.

    Went to Iron Goat for Flannel Fest (a mug club party that featured copious amounts of chicken wings) and had an IG barleywine (!) and a cherry sour collaboration with Ordnance. Then I.went kitty-korner to River City and had their Mocha Marmot, a very chocolatey tasting imperial stout.

    It was only brewed 77-78. I, sorta, remember drinking one from a couple Sixers my folks bought when it was new.

    I just need to make sure my tetanus booster is up to date, in case I cut myself on the poptop. :wink:

    Good idea.

    I vaguely recall drinking a can for laughs and giggles when I was in college. I don't know why I was expecting anything out of the ordinary, but for some reason I thought it would be particularly awful (I was pretty certain it wouldn't be anything very good). But it really wasn't. Just amother lightly flavored AAL with nothing to commend it. Just the sort of beer Billy Carter could undoubtedly pound down by the case on a Sunday afternoon.

    Course now that it's got a little age on it, I'm sure it will be something absolutely sublime.

    As I mentioned above, this is the most excited I've been for a beer in a long time. I honestly can't recall being this hyped since, I dunno, maybe the first Heady you sent me?

    I mean, a beer that was shitty 42 years ago? In a can that likely has rust issues? What could possibly go wrong?

    The fact that I'm actually excited for this, well, I was dropped on my head as a child.

    Shrug.

    After a delightfully tart Urban Family Featherstone today, I’m finishing off the night with a Deschutes Black Butte ^3. So very smooth and delicious.

    I'd say you've upgraded your "ain't got no money" beer selection considerably from back in those bad olde days. Hell, it wasn't all that many years ago when I'd have been ecstatic to have an ipa as good as the Lagunitas, no matter what the cost.

    Sunriver’s Cocoa Cow is my ideal milk stout and drinks nicely following morning coffee. Smooth and creamy with a proper amount of chocolate and not too sweet. I’d love to see a version if this with espresso in it.
