What ya drinking tonight?

Recommended Posts

Did you say try something else, Greytail?

 

Okay, how about Firestone Walker XVIII Anniversary Ale.

 

I've always enjoyed these offerings in the past, but I also found each one to be just a tad on the watery side compared to their individual components like Parabola, Helldorado, and Stickee Monkee. Last year's blend, however, was ridiculously rich, deep, and insanely complex while still being eminently drinkable. It's no wonder its rating was appreciably higher on several sites.

 

Absolutely remarkable stuff that's already aging beautifully. :worshippy:

Melvin 2X4 today.

 

It is a grand Imperial IPA, but at $24 for a half growler, it makes Sculpin seem like a trip to a beer thrift store. :wacko:

 

I'm a willing captive, however. Sometimes, if you wanna play, ya gotta pay.

Yuengling's Black and Tan. Yup. Y'all read it right. And ye' know whut? It's not that bad. For a macro-beer, it's quite good. As an overall beer that's less than a buck per can, we'd give it a 7/10. It's fitting for Fall. You know. . . dead leaves, death, decay, cardigans and all that jazz.

Beer should never be as much as whisky. Note: That's whisky without an 'e', mind ya'. Throw in an 'e' and the price drops at least 50%. :arrr:

Let's say Firestone's Sucaba is the set beer standard and that Ardbeg's Uigeadail is the set whisky standard. Forget everything else. It doesn't matter at that point. In such a scenario, everybody wins. Still, we think we're right about the 'e' thing. We think the 'e' can save this economy. Everybody. . . if you own stock, invest in the letter 'e'. Don't be afraid. Sesame Street no longer has a monopoly over all the alphabet.

 

Note: If anybody responds to this, you're supposed to say: "If Sesame Street doesn't have a monopoly over the alphabet, then who does?"

And then we say: "Wall Street."

Fremont Brewing Brew 1000.

 

Caramel, toffee, bourbon, coconut, vanilla, old leather, tobacco, and a plethora of winy red fruit skins, all wrapped in a lush body of liquid velvet. Impeccably balanced with an infinite finish, this masterpiece is definitely sweet, but never crosses over into cloying.

 

A worthy tribute to the world class brewery that Fremont has become. :worshippy: :clap:
