This would have been missed without you letting us know. I'll drink a toast to your honor this evening....you can keep the Lambic.
You are too funny! Cheers my friend. I wish I was there to join you for that pint. Sounds awesome.
Ira suggested this beer a while back but I just found it. Its Rayon Vert from Green Flash Brewery in San Diego. Its a similar beer to Orval but even better.
This is now my favorite summer beer by far and I could easily drink this into the winter. A pale ale that is not overly hoped and is slightly sour. Superb balance of hops, citrus, malt, alcohol and everything else you expect to find in a pale ale. The addition of the "brett" yeast makes this unique IMHO, adding that barnyard funk.
Its bottle conditioned and is on the high-side of carbonation so be very careful when swirling around to dislodge that good stuff. I had a minor explosion on my first bottle.
I almost picked up a six pack of Weyerbacher Verboten last night. It too is a Belgian style pale ale. I was little worried by dust that was on it and would love have been able to just buy one bottle but if its anything like what you described I might just take a chance.
Since its a national day, all good citizens should abide by the decree...... I am thinking a splash of Blantons tonight while watching the Open
OK, I watched this. I donno, any beer described as smelling sweaty then it tastes intensely sour... yeah, its bourbon for me.... Let me know how this one works out for you.
gold metal for what and given by whom? the "I love foul smelling and tasting food and beverage society" or is this just what is considered good in Ohio?
I seriously though he was going to heave! He really started to sweat
Me too! (But I'm not watching the Open.)
Are trying to puke?
OK, rule here that must be obeyed. No half pints for men! I learned this on one of my trips to Ireland when at a local pub a tourist ordered a half pint; the bar keep refused to serve him Guiness in a half pint. Only for women he said..
Whew, then I don't count.
I don't know; after drinking a bottle of Laphroig (aged in bourbon casks btw), you might think he had had enough. Maybe he had to drive somewhere?
Got to do a little Elijah Craig on crushed ice with friends tonight to finish the old bottle. That works for National Bourbon Day.
you are a brave man!
A little mint simple syrup and a lotta bourbon makes a mighty fine Mint Julep.
