Oh, hey that's right... you're in town this week!

You should try the Two Brothers Pinball. I know I've seen it at the Walgreens near my office.

You guys are making me jealous. I'm sitting in the middle of nowhere, NY. Not a brew in sight. If i'm bored enough to soapbox in r&p things are bad.

Just had a very enjoyable lunch with Captain Ned at the Haymarket Pub. Pastrami sandwich and a glass of their Black Saison.

And my low ABV IPA was tasty as well, though there was enough residual malt to make it a carb load on top of a Cuban sandwich and a pile of fries.

A nice glass of 2014 "Bonus Level" from Woot Cellars (http://www.cellartracker.com/wine.asp?iWine=2491318).

Aged for a year before opening the first bottle...and damn, it's good stuff, especially given the low cost when I nabbed it.

Belgian-style Dubbel with figs. Leftovers from the keg I served at the AHA Conference Club Night last week.

Mad Cap Mead. Made from the cappings from my buddies bee hives from last year.

To collect the honey from the hive's cells, one must scrape off the wax caps with a hot knife and then the honey can be spun free and collected. Ultimately, a big bucket of wax, honey, and bee chunks (legs, heads, and the odd thorax or two). We softened the wax cappings in hot water which dissolved enough honey to produce 5 gallons of 12% ABV mead. Now that it's several months old and the finings have done their biz, it's really quite tasty. Looks good too. I think given another 3 months, it'll be damn fine.

Had a Founder's Brewing "Lizard of Koz" this afternoon. Don't let some of the BeerAdvocate Founders' haters tell you different --it's art in a glass, and I get it on tap when I can.

Kind of nice being 12 minutes from the brew pub.

Just for fun, I brought home a 4-pack of their DKLM (D!@$-Kicking-Malt-Liquor) brewed specialty two months out of the year, 14.2%, part of the barrel-aged line. I haven't tried that yet; in summer, I try to save the heavies for cool or AC-indoors days.

So kind of like kombucha? :wink:

I'm having a Lagunitas Sucks.

Pleased (and a little surprised) that selling a majority stake to Heineken a few years back hasn't resulted in any significant changes to their beers that I've noticed. Who would've thought a conservative "old school" brewery like Heineken would distribute a product that is literally named "Sucks"? :lol:

I kind of wanted a cold beer tonight but it's not an appropriate time for a buzz. I settled for a super mega sized root beer float. Boy am i going to regret that later. I already feel like a balloon.

Maple ale experiment #2. Went a little overboard with the oak on this one, so it's a bit tannic. It's also noticeably boozy, but that part was intentional. :wink:

It's basically a brown ale that's been "boosted" with a quart of maple syrup (in a 3 gallon batch). Maple syrup is close to 100% fermentable, and with it accounting for nearly a third of the sugars in this batch, we're looking at something north of 9% ABV. Whee! :lol:

2001 Sierra Nevada Bigfoot Barleywine

My wife took it upon herself to clean out the back of the brewing closet (under the basement stairs) a few days ago, and unearthed some rather old bottles of Bigfoot. Before the beer fans here get all excited, it's not "all that". Until 2008 or so, SN was using screw-cap bottles (for a Barleywine? WTF...), and let's just say that the resulting less-than-wonderful seal is not kind to the beer. It has lost all of its carbonation, and is oxidized all to heck. It's still drinkable, mind you... and interesting from a "beer geek" perspective; but it's not great. It is sherry-like, but also still fairly bitter (since Bigfoot is a very hoppy beer, and hop bitterness persists long after hop aroma/flavor have checked out), and with a hint of soy sauce.

In the "should we drink these or use them in a marinade" debate, I think these older screw-cap bottle Bigfoots (Bigfeet?) are on the line.

Root beer - quite tasty, actually. This is easily a better gateway to underage alcoholism than wine coolers were a few decades ago.
