Received this in my Beer52 monthly delivery, in both a can and a bottle, which I thought would make for a nice little comparison.

I love taking pictures of beer in the sun, especially at a place called “Alki Beach”.

"…a melange of new and experimental hops (Azacca and Belma, as well as HBC 342 and Steiner 06300, yet-to-be-named varieties from Washington’s Yakima Valley)…"  - from the label. 8.8% ABV

Sweet smells of pear and dried flowers with some bubblegum and headshop (stale incense) right there also. More subtle hints of candied orange peel and dried apricots… and a tiny bit of tennis ball.

The flavor is very close to the nose, with the sticky sweetness standing out first. Those ‘bubblegum and headshop’ notes from the aroma come together on the palate as more of a Juicy Fruit-like flavor (which might sound more appealing?). Plenty of hops, but as I have described, it’s fruity (dried fruit, candied citrus) and not piney, dank, or foresty as might be expected. Despite starting out sweet and sticky, on the finish it’s clean and almost dry.

I enjoyed this much more than Enjoy By.

U.S. TRIBAL NATIONS MAP-Purchase

This map presents every documented, known Native American tribe that was here in pre-contact time, before the arrival of Europeans. All of the tribal nations documented here are in their original locations before the European Invasion…

Brew time in Massachusetts tonight. A collaboration, sour mash Berliner Weisse. Yes that’s a Heady Topper!

Nice pic!

Naparbier Undead Imperial IPA. Imported from Spain by Shelton Brothers in Mass. This beer is outrageously delicious. It may not be Heady but better than most. I highly recommend it. #beer #craftbeer #ibelieveinipa #importedbeer #spanishbeer #importsfromspain #ipa #Naparbier #Undead #properglassware #beerstagram #beersofinstagram #drinktography

thrandys-nonsense:

Burning Brothers’ Pyro American Pale Ale. This is a gluten-free beer made from sorghum. It definitely has a different taste, a sort of bite that isn’t in traditional beers. It’s not bad, but significantly different. If you’re familiar with rye in beer, it’s similar to that, fairly intense. Overall this is a pretty good beer. If I had a need to be gluten-free then this would be a fine substitute.  Since I don’t, I probably won’t be buying this again. 6/10

It’s been almost four weeks…

since I’ve had a beer! I’ve gone 26 days now without consuming beer or alcohol of any kind. Also no grains, dairy, soy, potatoes, or any foods with added sweeteners. I’m gonna start drinking beer again tomorrow, but I think I will keep the other stuff out of my diet going forward. The no sugar thing might be the hardest, just because there’s added sugar in nearly everything packaged. That was a big eye opener- I was eating or drinking sugar (or some form of sweetener) in nearly everything I ate. If I do bring sugar back, it will be in some form I will actually appreciate rather than hidden in some everyday product as a lazy flavor enhancer.

To Save These Pigs, Ky. Farmer Says We Have To Eat Them

Red Wattle are particularly delicious pigs and I am thankful there are those farmers who are working tirelessly to expand the populations of heritage breed animals.

From a scrapbook in the Barney Keep Collection — pasted in with no other context and (as far as I know) nothing else related to beer).
Barney Keep was an OSU alum who became a celebrity in Portland radio, at KEX for 35 years and (as reported by one of my colleagues) “ruled the morning drive for most of that time.” 
The collection description is limited right now, not much more than a stub of a record, but from what I’ve heard the collection is pretty rich and has been fun to work with so far!

This is hilarious. It’s almost like… if you’re from a family with great wealth, that you inherited and didn’t really ever have to work for, that maybe somehow you might be out of touch with 99% of other people on this planet… maybe
