Nothing like sun, babes, and ice-cold bottles of skunked beer!
Maybe not the "special occasion" I had in mind for it, but cracking open and taking my first sip of Utopias might be appropriate when this whole mess ends.
Zombie Dust, which seems appropriate. Then perhaps a Space Station Middle Finger.
"Lassies", that's great...no dogs allowed.
I'm hoping to try the DFH hand sanitizer. Not sure it qualifies as beer, but if it's post-pandemic we're not gonna quibble about styles.....
I hope there's a "post pandemic"
I probably take for granted the fact I can go to some great pubs here and have a pint of Guinness the majority of the time so I think that'll be it! Might as well go to one of my locals to have it too seeing as they've been serving pints for 1100 years https://www.seansbar.ie/history
I'm thinking my bottle of Dark Lord that @ovaltine hooked me up with about a year ago. I have high hopes of organizing a bottle share with some friends of mine when the "all-clear" sounds.
I've been giving this some thought. Once the pan(dem)ic subsides and the bars and restaurants around here return to normal operation, I'm going to Whiskey Road in Cedar Falls for a belated St. Paddy's Day dram of Midleton Very Rare. But not before I hit my favorite Chinese buffet for lunch and a Tsingtao.
I love the shout out to the great Thorton Melon.
As soon as I'm allowed out of the house I'm going to Santa Adairius and drinking one of everything they have on tap. Then I'll do another lap. When they have enough of me, I'm going to take an Uber to the one in Santa Cruz and repeat. Guess we'll see what happens after that.
I'll likely start off finally cracking my Double Barrel Bourbon County with a friend I haven't been able to see in a while. Next, out in the world I'll probably head to Insight for a Mega Dankbot. Everything here is shut down until May 1st, hopefully that date holds!
I have a Miller High Life in a 750 ml champagne style bottle, that will be my first post - lock down beer.
Whatever is fresh at Blue Mountain when we head down for a post-pandemic dinner at our favorite spot (or if we're lucky, their Sunday brunch).
Sounds like you're gonna make up for some lost ground in a hurry
I like your style, but please stay healthy until then so you can make it happen.
Monday it will be 2 weeks since I've left my property. My wife and daughter both have compromised immune systems, so I can't really take a chance. I'm fortunate that I don't have to work and can just hibernate and mess with my old stereo equipment. But when I can get out, god help Santa Cruz.
Look on the bright side...good news? I hope this will be over soon so everyone can get back to work, enjoy that first post-pandemic beer...before more damage is done to the businesses of the lower bourgeois and their employees.
So. W-H-O is saying this, so it's at least more trustworthy than, well, ya' know, who.
So...back to the future?
I see they're finally starting to put the puzzle pieces together. Good.
P.S. I wonder if anyone bothered to see if Lupus patients were getting SARS-CoV-2 in less numbers than the general population? Just spitballin'.
There was going to be a beerfest in ATL last week that got cancelled due to the coronavirus. A lot of stuff that my local craft beer distributor (Modern Hops) had on deck for the fest ended up hitting limited distro. I managed to grab 4-packs of Pipeworks, Bissel Brothers, and 450 North beers. I'm waiting to crack one of the 450 North slushies because they have been on my list of beers to try for a while now. I'm sad that ATL fest got cancelled even though I wasn't attending but I am psyched for some of the great beer originally for the fest the ended up hitting distro. Silver linings I guess.
I miss restaurants, and when things return to normal I plan on hitting up my favorite local haunts that serve Wormtown's Be Hoppy. There are several such places in a five mile radius.
Nothing special about this AIPA, it just goes well with food for me. I am looking to not be cooking.
I love cooking but damn it is getting tiring cooking 3 meals a day for weeks on end now and I absolutely plan on going to be fave local place for some poutine and a brew whenever stuff opens back up.
At the rate we're going , I'd probably say Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale.
I think it's a good thing for mental health to look forward to things for when we get to the other side. Mental health is important in this, and seems to be neglected somewhat with all the messaging around the crisis. Not saying that physical distancing should be neglected, but there should be more mental health resources as I'm sure many are struggling with most human contact taken away.
I switched to whiskey.
Just kidding. But I have augmented with the more potent potables. I was on a cruise ship when the shit hit the fan. We were on the beautiful and newly refurbished Oasis of the Seas, on her last cruise for a while. Mine too, sadly. They let us go in Miami on the 15th. US customs could not have been more lame.
We heard on the drive back to Cleveland that all hell had broken loose in Ohio (much sooner than anywhere else on our route) so we pickup up provisions at a Piggly Wiggly in West Virginia. This included some AIPA that was over the hill (see my review of Stonewall IPA).
Since then, I've had the six Stonewalls, a couple Jackie O's OPA's left in my fridge, one or two miscellaneous singles I had, and a Great Lakes variety 12 pack I had delivered. I have yet to tap into the few bottles sitting in my aging box downstairs - mostly stouts and Belgians. The Great Lakes were really good - including the fabulous amber Vienna lager, Elliot Ness.
We have stayed isolated this whole time. Watching tons of TV, finishing my taxes, reading Wolves of the Calla (I was saving the last three books of the Dark Tower - to make them last the rest of my life). We will continue to isolate a while longer, getting delivered groceries and prepared food. I am retired and my portfolio is down about 500k, but I can handle it. Beer has been scarce for me in isolation - that is harder to handle.
Being stuck at home has made me appreciate what I have. And what I HAD.
The federal government really botched this. Idiots.
Great question and better pic @Todd.
Until it’s over, over and I can take that drive to Munster, IN or get on a plane that’s heading for Santa Cruz, San Marcos or San Diego, CA then Sam the BEER MAN has got my business. I hope my local watering holes heal from the NEIPA pandemic.
Probably a pint of Yeungling, with a plate of wings at my local. They're doing carryout, but until I can hang with the gang there, it ain't happening.
I’m planning on having a special beer to celebrate when my state (CA) ends the lock down. Any BAs know of any beers that would be appropriate for the occasion? I like most styles of beer although sours can be difficult to get in my area. Thanks!
A nice Bottle Logic stout (FO, FF, FT, etc..)?
Sante Adairius - Westly, West Ashley, etc..?
Russian River - Beatification?
The Lost Abbey - Duck Duck Gooze or Cable Car?
A vintage Firestone-Walker bottle?
A super fresh Pliny or three?
California has some nice beer! Whatever you decide to drink, it'll be perfect. It's the occasion that matters (so long as they don't open up prematurely). Maybe a nice California sampler with the best your state has to offer (that you can get your hands on).
Maybe that one special beer you've been holding onto for the right occasion. Seems like a worthy reason to crack it!
No, I'm not having any special beer. But I like the idea...
Lagunitas Shut Down Ale??
Cask ale @ Forest & Main
Let me know I'll meet you there.
Sounds like a plan.
So jealous of their PA-only delivery...I saw they had a bitter in cans recently
Thought about it and looked at my wall of bourbon and imperial IPAs. Should have pulled the trigger on it
North Coast Pranqster.
I'm not kidding. I switched to whisk(e)y over a year ago. Of course, the coronavirus had nothing to do with the switch, but I must say having a full whisk(e)y shelf has been very comforting in these strange times.
With that said, I'm still looking forward to sitting at a bar that serves cask ale and drinking several pints when this BS ends. And if I get to sip Lone Star at the Continental Club one more Wednesday night with McMurtry in the house, OMG. That will be one epic evening.
Cannot state what with any certainty yet. It may be at a multi-tap craft beer bar, or it might be at a brewpub which does not have its own food, and for which I will have to determine whose restaurant's food to bring in.
But then Josh Noel has pledged to throw a massive BBQ party when the pandemic is deemed manageable. The beers on offer there (which I suspect will not include Bourbon County) should be quite good. (Maybe some whalez will wash ashore.)
A Bud Light. Nothing says communal health and prosperity more than spending money on almost water. I'll have two.
My first beer out turned out to be an Alluvium Pilsner from Seismic brewing. A new favorite of mine. I drank it alone in a new beer garden because ibdrove by before I knew anything was open and i saw a big sign and cars in the lot. It was quite nice
It was Jai Alai a while back.
