I'm drinking this tonight:



Probably the most enjoyable & fulfilling beer I've purchased in 2011.

Yep! Heavy Seas. I quite like their Loose Cannon IPA... I've had a few others from them, but can't recall precisely what. I like their brews, not so much their marketing/labels/company ethos. Makes them seem like some kind of Flying Dog knockoff.

They make good shit! They make a really good imperial stout. Regarding their labels, I'm always down with nautical-themed anything, but in their case the execution is a wee bit cornball.

Agreed on the design. If they hadn't had this pilsner on the shelf, I probably would've passed them over. But I'm a man on a mission.

I can't wait to get home tonight, turn on the Braves game, and drink some more of it.

Quote from: Walker Percy
1941: Drinking mint juleps, famed Southern drink, though in the Deep South not really drunk much. In fact, they are drunk so seldom that when, say, on Derby Day somebody gives a julep party, people drink them like cocktails, forgetting that a good julep holds at least five ounces of Bourbon. Men fall face-down unconscious, women wander in the woods disconsolate and amnesic, full of thoughts of Kahlil Gibran and the limberlost.

Man that bit about sipping bourbon from a flask at the UNC-Duke game. I think my eyes got a little watery. Wonderful stuff.

I like the idea of drinking bourbon to counteract "the sadness of the old dying Western world" with its Cronkites and growing grass and kids who don't look you in the eye.

That bit about "cutting the cold phlegm of Wednesday afternoons" seemed particularly apt at this moment.

Bought It On A Whim bottle review: Camus VS cognac. 

Normally I wouldn't get a brandy unless I was going to splurge on something really fancy, what as most of the VS cognacs I've had are either deathly dull or all up in caramel color and sickly sweetness so you can taste it in Coke like yer standard Henny &c.  It came very highly recommended though, and was a buck cheaper than a bottle of crappy Courvoisier, so I went for it.

Excellent decision!  It's the polar opposite of that club VS cognac.  Very subtle, lightly sweet, kind of tangerine fruitiness or something like that.  It's also probably the smoothest liquor I've ever consumed, which is disconcerting.  I mean, no alcohol burn at all.

That is why this post might have poor grammar.

I tried Jameson 12-year last night at the bar. It was pretty good, certainly better than regular-old Jameson, but was it TWICE as good? Because it cost twice as much. I don't really think so.

turns out just because you have a friend who works in a bar you still don't want to spend that much money on beer and a good tip all the time. so my lol beer exploration has come to a crawl. I tried a strawberry abita once. Tasty. And I tried um something else in a huge bottle that was like coney island or something. It was alright, had a meaty/smokey flavor. The past two times I went to visit I had water :/

As a dude who sometimes drinks a whole bunch of beer, and as a dude who has on a few occasions drank a whole bunch of beer with Jim, I give this advice: Keeping up with Jim is not something you're going to be able to do.
