I am now shitbag wasted and am watching "Natural Born Killers". I know it's more of a stoner flick, but I'm no Detroit rock city burnout, so I'll just deal with the in between burnt out/ drunk understanding of movies. This movie is a classic. Rodney Dangerfield rules and juillette Lewis is soooo hot!
Then again, this is one of my favorite movies. I mean who doesn't love these psychadelic 90's movies that are so drug ingrained with NIN music and synthetic mind bending tools. You make this all go away..I just want something, that I can never have."
$250. Cost will be split between the 5 of us in the beer tasting group I have at the house each month, so $50 each.
The mind boggling parts of the story (for me at least) is that:
(a) this was found in the local grocery store vice Gabriel's or Speck's (the two large liquor store chains in the area),
(b) Larry the Beer Guy at this particular store had not one but three of these (yet I bought the last one in stock),
(c) they're building a larger store to replace the existing one (due to open Feb '12) that will have double the area for booze.
I am at the canal street pub in Reading, PA right now.
Just had a Weyerbacher Slam Dunkel...delicious double dunkelweizen.
Then I had a Sly Fox Peggy Maibock. It's a German style lager that I felt was very pleasant to drink and it tasted great.
Now I'm on a Laginitas Wilco Tango Foxtrot. Definately has a Lagunitas signature taste, but very mellow, yet without the harsh after taste. Is it just me, or do a lot of beers that are dry hopped smell like a cat's litter box?
I'm home drinking a Saranac variety pack. Not bad for the cheap-o price. I favor the Black Forest Lager.
I did notice something over Memorial Day weekend. I had off for 4 days straight, which is unheard of, and Friday I drank at the Canal Street Pub. I had a Weyerbacker Slam Dunkel, a Sly Fox (not sure what, but it was a German Lager and was delicious), and a Lagunitas WTF. I drove the Miata there with my friend, and I took him to his house and then drove home. Felt sober as a priest on Sunday. Then I went out and drank crappy beer...Yuengling Lager, Yuengling Premiun, Miller High Life, Rolling Rock, Guinness mixed with Yuengling Lager (Black and Tan). I turned into a ****** scumbag *******. WTF? I drink high test beer that's microbrewed with excellence, and I am fine. I drink **** beer that flows all across the country and I turn into the biggest jerk off to sit in 3 countys worth of bars.
There is something to this, I swear.
My best friend homebrews beer that tastes better than any DogFish product, and I can drink it all day and feel normal. I drink a Pabst Blue Ribbon and a Genessee Cream Ale and it's Jekyl and Hyde time for me.
Know what I'm sayin?
So much for not having Utopias before... Got a chance to try a 2005 Vintage this Saturday during a MASSIVE Barrel Aged Only beer tasting at a friends. It was quite divine! Also sampled 28 other new-to-me brews as well. Might be attending a Sour Beer Only tasting this coming weekend if I can find the ammo to take with me to get in. *fingers crossed*
