What ya drinking tonight?

Recommended Posts

St. George. From a cute 200 ml bottle. It's the closest thing to real absinthe currently available in Manitoba. I'll take it. I'll have one of the Jades tomorrow! :cheers:

A glass from a growler of freshly tapped keg 2x4 that Tish just walked in and surprised me with.

 

Damn, I'm spoiled rotten. :heart:

Just got back from a day trip to Antwerp.
First, I had the regional spirit 'Elixir d'Anvers'. It was very nice and sweet.

I drank it in a rustic-looking bar next to the large cathedral/belfry, and inside were a bunch of antiquated religious statues looking down at me sternly as I sipped the green anecdote.

 

After that, I found an 'absinthe bar'. They are into the whole sugar burning thing, unfortunately, but they actually didn't light the drink on fire, and gave me cold water for it - had a Lemercier Amer 72; better than what I expected them to have. What these people did absolutely right, though, is cocktails. So I had one which utilized François Guy absinthe, coconut, lime juice, honey, and mint.

I'd go back simply for that drink, alone. And apparently - according to the staff - I was sitting next to the most famous porn star in The Netherlands, who was visiting Belgium.

Needless to say, it was an interesting outing.

Melvin Brewing 2x4 has apparently gone on hiatus until further notice, and I just scored a growler from the last keg on the face of the planet (including the mythical state of Wyoming). :3869-sadbanana:

 

Kicking back now, and making every sip count.

The second half of the 2x4 growler.

 

It's wonderful, but it would be even tastier with some football to accompany it.

 

Not that I'm complaining about how the season ended, mind you. :no2:

Traditional Mead Liqueur from Blackwood Meadery Western Australia. Crafted by Horst Bernhagen, an original from the Baltic Border who does everything via age old traditional recipes from his own honey farm. Divine!
