this may be of some local interest

Are you saying that your wife gets frisky after enjoying grilled meats with you? I need a new wife.

Was just in Bend. Agree on ten barrel being great, but it was just bought by InBev. Bummer.

I live in Sacramento. Rather than repeat a long list of California IPAs that this board is probably sick of hearing about from the drinking threads, (Alpine Nelson. There is nothing better and nothing even close for my money) I will instead stick to extremely local beer.
There is a small brewery in Sacramento called "Device." The husband and wife team used to homebrew in the San Diego area and were rather plugged in to the scene accordin to the website. At any rate, they opened a "hop heavy" brewery not too far from where I live and are absolutely killing it. All of the beer is great, including collaborations with better known breweries like Knee Deep. If you were to come through Sacramento I would say head to Device Brewing and order an "Integral IPA".
As for the second question, my traditions are to drink anything I can during Michigan football games (often 9am on the west coast), lie to my wife about how many I have had, and lie to myself about my ability to lose the weight craft beer is slowly adding to my body.

Good call on the Abyss! That is and excellent beer.
|51 weeks 4 days ago||Sorry. Personal opinion||
Sorry. Personal opinion alert! Pinedrops is Tuuurrrrible. While fresh squeezed is a revelation from one of the west coast's most overrated breweries, pinedrops is truly tuuuurrrible. In my opinion.

My high school self would be saying, hell yeah it is! But my adult self says No! No it is not!

Blind Pig and Pliny the Elder back to back. A friend has a cabin in Mendocino and he picked up three of each for me on his way back down the coast. Have to say I prefer the Blind Pig. Too boozy is no good for me anymore.

I was on silver lake (and Long Lake) with my family 2 weeks ago. Family wedding at Grand Traverse. Small world considering I have been out here for 15 years.

Alpine Nelson. Then try Alpine Nelson. Finally, Alpine Nelson.

Nelson! My last two posts have been about Nelson, but that is time well spent. Best IPA ever

Worst part about this otherwise entertaining product. The strike zone is all over the place.

I would walk over hot coals filled with razor blades to get to the Nelson. None better in my book.
|1 year 16 weeks ago||While agreeing with the Pope||
While agreeing with the Pope is more common sense than "sticking my neck out there" I agree with this sentiment exactly as it is worded. I love In n' Out just like I love a couple other regional burger establishments. But in my three and only visits to Five Guys I have walked away with the feeling that I just ate a shitty burger and need to wash my hands 10 times. Don't understand the source of the equally strong hype for 5 guys.

As a tax attorney, you would think I would enjoy this conversation. Unfortunately, it seems the only person I can't help save money is me. Oh well, a few more beers and I will forget the bill. Stone "delicious" IPA here. It is rather new and purports to be gluten free. All I know is that it truly is "delicious" and it is 1 for 1 in giving me a brutal hangover. Cheers everyone.

Now that is a cool story bro I can get behind. Always loved both of these shoes for the same reasons (Fab Five) and can't believe you are building signed copies. Are they reissues? Mint condition from the early 90's?

Have been wearing the New Era hat (with the logo on the side) for a couple of years now. Imagine my delight when our very own Harbaugh ditched the superbold font and returned to the classic skinny block M. My only issue is that they don't make a low profile version. I have always felt like the original 59fifty hats sit really high off of your head and make you look a bit douchey. Oh well. If its good enough for Harbaugh, I suppose I can tolerate looking like Albert Belle.
|1 year 27 weeks ago||Not so fast||
Love the content WD, and am a fan of your contributions to the blog, but the match play scores are indeed incomplete. I am assuming the wins by "4" and "6" refer to "4 and 3 or 2" and "6 and 5 or 4" respectively. Picking nits indeed, but I would hate for Bust a Nuss to feel like a dumbass when the there is in fact an issue with the reporting.

Hopefully this post goes through. Happy Friday all! Vodka and rockstar for this guy. My wife is giving me the stink eye, but the kids Re in bed and no one can steal my thunder now.

Well said BiSB. No truer words have ever been spoken. Fear not Wolverines. We are Michigan! And we will be back

What is it going to take to get Drake multiple series. Clearly our best back
|1 year 49 weeks ago||I have to agree with the Spicyweiner on this one...||
The more Jalen talks about what C-Webb should or shouldn't do, the more obvious it becomes that Jalen is looking out for his own reputation and doesn't really care about C-Webb and Michigan making up.
I love both of these guys more than I should. Move on Jalen. Your career is really starting to take off and shouldn't be defined by C-Webb's actions.

Pretty rare find in CA. There is plenty of 90 min and even some 120, but I don't find the 60 very often. Excellence goes without saying.
|2 years 2 weeks ago||Yeah. They are all good in my opinion.||
Simtra (TIPA) will rearrange your braincells. If you are looking to stay in the region, look for Speakeasy (San Francisco)
|2 years 2 weeks ago||Love this topic.||
Have had mixed responses over the years. It has not deterred me, but has definitely knocked some decibels off of my own greeting.
|2 years 2 weeks ago||I love that you gave a shout out to Knee Deep.||
Citra is a great beer. And Knee Deep is doing work in the Nor Cal foothills. We all love our San Diego MGoBloggers and their never ending list of great breweries (Ballast Point, Alesmith, Stone, Green Flash etc.) but Northern California puts out great beer year after year.

It looks like he would rather throw the ball out of bounds than pass to Nik. Strange to watch.
