Sorry, sometimes will take me a bit to write what I intend to if things are busy, but I wanted to say something about my beer experience last Friday.
It started with me trying to prove my pet Beeradvocate.com hypothesis, which is this: if you go on the What Beer Are You Drinking Now thread early enough (in my case, opened the thread) and post a picture of Founders Breakfast Stout and a good heavy metal tune (in my case, Iron Maiden’s Run to the Hills), then you will “win” the most likes for the day, which I did, and by a pretty good margin. I find it interesting how that’s probably the most popular beer on that thread.
Later that afternoon, I was able to grab the last six pack of Three Floyd’s ZombieDust at my favorite beer store. Because I hadn’t had it in a long time, and I seem to forget how balanced and juicy it is in between times having it, it became the only beer I drank the rest of that day. It really is truly a great beer, despite how I sometimes bitch about the brewery being overrated.
Couple notes on the coffee beer post the other day:
-the Fouders Sumatra Mountain opens up nicely when you pour it into a coffee cup. Going to have to try it in a snifter at some point.
-Peace by Mikkeller was pretty good. It was a Belgian abbey ale with coffee and aged in Bourbon Barrels. Not big on the coffee flavor, but a very mellow and tasty beer. I usually find myself disappointed in their beers, so this was a pleasant surprise.
Well, off to do yard work and figuring out what to drink after the work is done.
Have a good one….
