Sounds awesome. I'm going with Badger Mountain Organic Cabernet. I've heard organic wine doesn't give you a headache... maybe I should test that hypothesis

Was in the local liquor store recently to buy a handle of the daily Scotch swill when I saw behind the counter the single most expensive bottle I've ever seen in a VT liquor store. A bottle (750ml) of Macallan 30 year old priced at $1.249.99. The guy behind the counter says he sells 5-6 per year and that the purchaser is insistent on it always being in stock. Sucks to be rich.

That sounds absolutely disgusting!

I am currently having a Lagunitas Sucks. Yes, that's actually the name of the beer. Click the link if you don't believe me. We tried this at a tasting at work a couple of weeks ago, and several people indeed thought it sucked; I actually like it. Not for the faint of heart though; very bitter, with a sharp, resiny hop character.

Just finished brewing up a batch of experimental Cherry Chipotle Stout. Won't know how it turns out for a few weeks yet.

That does sound like it sucks :| Not much for bitter beers. The Cherry Chipotle Stout sounds interesting though, sort of makes me think of Dark Chocolate with cherry filling with chillie in the center. Sounds odd until you try it and then you get a craving for it.

Ohh, drinking Theraflu....................... yay.

It is amazing how well chipotle peppers go with fruit. Yes, it sounds weird until you've tried it. But there's just something about the heat and smoke (chipotles are actually smoked jalapenos) that works really well with fruit, especially tart fruit. This batch is a follow-on to a fanstatic batch of Raspberry Chipotle Porter I did a while back. Chipotle Mango sounds like another combo I should experiment with.

Could be worse, you could have pneumonia; my wife was just diagnosed with it today. Take care of that flu, that's how her pneumonia started. She shook off the flu in a reasonable amount of time, but the cough lingered and eventually turned into some sort of bacterial infection.

(Been telling her to go to the doctor for a couple of weeks now, her symptoms were identical to when I had pneumonia years ago.)

Hmmm, I wonder how something like Strawberry Rhubarb and Chipotle would work out. You said tart and that was the first thing that came to mind. I've always thought that those flavors together were some sort of local thing (or at least North West), or are they not?

Orrrr... Cranberry Chipotle. I'm thinking of something like this with that spice. http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/silver-gul ... ry/131316/ My wife and I had this beer at our wedding reception and it was quite a hit. Very campenege like beer and easily agreeable for both the men and women.

Ya I'm doing my best to kick it in the butt while I can. Seems like everyone I know is getting walking pneumonia, some of them multiple times :O.

Also drinking coffee thanks to your post, a Costa Rican Tarrazu. Odd, everyone here seems to be getting the flu.

Flu is rampant here in my slice of VT. Doesn't stop me from the Famous Grouse.

Coffee is for the AM and with Bailey's infused.

It's not necessarily 'organic' that makes a difference, you may be sensitive to nitrates. Look for nitrate-free before narrowing it further to organic unless you have other reasons for getting organic.

Some folks are allergic to sulfites, which are found in many wines. That can cause a serious headache.

Cappuccino from my new espresso machine. A nice European Medium Espresso from my bud with the roasting business. He has two roasters, one bigger than my Lincoln. ;)

Some fruity substance with alcohol in it. Not enough to get drunk on, but I hope I don't fall asleep before it's time to shut off the sprinklers. I hate being in a sound snooze when the alarm goes of and I have to go coil garden hoses.

I really need to install a real irrigation system one of these days... :-?

Lots of seltzer water.

Have not had a drop of alcohol (and minimal caffeine) for nearly a week now. Not sure which is worse.

Damn flu.
