I have several stouts to enjoy today, including:
|6 days 8 hours ago||Seek out some Sweetwater Hop||
Seek out some Sweetwater Hop Hash, it's their best beer in ages. Great IPA.
|6 days 8 hours ago||I really do think it has to||
I really do think it has to be the cherries that throw me off because I find "Sixth Glass" (the supposed base beer) to be very good and fitting of the style.
|6 days 8 hours ago||It does taste good, but my||
It does taste good, but my first thought when trying a new quad is "how does this stack up to Rochefort 10?" My first thought isn't that it doesn't come close in flavor but that it simply isn't the same style. It doesn't taste like a quad. It's not complex enough, the mouth feel is wrong, and there's way too much cherry. I can see how a year of aging could be very beneficial to this beer.
|6 days 8 hours ago||Boulevard Bourbon Barrel||
Boulevard Bourbon Barrel Quad. Not a good representation of the style. Boulevard usually delivers, but they missed with this one.
|6 days 8 hours ago||Splitting time watching||
Splitting time watching football and the World Series while sipping on Boulevard's Bourbon Barrel Quad (a big disappointment, this is not a quad, too much cherries, not enough barrel). Unlike the beer, though, this World Series game is quite good and entertaining.

I don't think who the backup is should have any influence on whether to play or not to play the starting QB. And I'm most certainly not being a troll, it's just that at several points tonight it was VERY obvious that Gardner could not move well enough in the pocket to protect himself. Given that, even without a head injury, he should be taken out for his own safety. Gardner took one bad shot tonight, he doesn't need to take anymore because he feels the need to go out and hobble on one leg, no matter how good he's played (which he played great tonight when Michigan needed him). It just seems that from a quick glance that because Michigan won, everything is ok with Gardner's injuries whereas a loss probably would have resulted in a much greater scrutiny in Garner's leg injuries.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||There was a large amount of||
There was a large amount of people who said Shane should have never been in there to take the hit because his ankle was injured enough that he couldn't escape pressure. Tonight was no different for Gardner. He couldn't escape pressure and took one large hit. But, since Michigan won, the narrative is he's a warrior. The only difference was a win vs. a loss.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||So he's awesome and tough for||
So he's awesome and tough for playing through an injury tonight on the way to a WIN? The consistency here is incredible. Thanks Devin, but you shouldn't have been out there.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||It's going to happen with the||
It's going to happen with the current situation. It's inevitable. I'm just looking forward to watching tonight's game because we get a finite amount of Michigan football every year, and good or bad I enjoy rooting for this team.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||I decided to crack open a||
I decided to crack open a Rochefort 10 that I had been cellaring for close to 2 years. A world class beer that has definitely mellowed out a bit. The 11% is not noticeable anymore.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Sweetwater 420 is an APA not||
Sweetwater 420 is an APA not an IPA, and it's pretty meh in my opinion (like most Sweetwater brews). Their new Hop Hash offering is quite good, though. There's much better breweries in the Atlanta area than Sweetwater. Orpheus, Burnt Hickory, and Three Taverns to name a few.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||It's one of the best IPAs||
It's one of the best IPAs when fresh. The problem for me is finding it fresh.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||I'm enjoying a Stone Enjoy By||
I'm enjoying a Stone Enjoy By 10-31-14 DIPA. It is a most excellent brew.
|3 weeks 8 hours ago||The season is young but 2||
The season is young but 2 points against the Bruins are very valuable. Go Wings!
|3 weeks 9 hours ago||Go Wings! I thought a||
I thought a couple weeks ago how weird it is that I now look forward to Michigan basketball and Tigers baseball vs. when I grew up anticipating Michigan football and Wings hockey. How times 'a change.
|5 weeks 8 hours ago||1,2,3 9th for Nathan. Time to||
1,2,3 9th for Nathan. Time to turn the attention to the KC/Chi WS game.
|5 weeks 9 hours ago||Davis with an RBI double. 4-2||
Davis with an RBI double. 4-2 Tigers. And then Davis is caught trying to steal 3rd.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||And now the Tigers are 2||
And now the Tigers are 2 games up on the Royals, and Cleveland is still technically alive.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Gomes with a 3 run shot for||
Gomes with a 3 run shot for the Tribe. Go Tribe (that feels disgusting).
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Safety!||
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Another interception thrown||
Another interception thrown by Stafford. I hate football.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Started with Stone Xocoveza Stout, which was||
Started with Stone Xocoveza Stout, which was excellent, and now killing Founder's Breakfast stouts. Getting drunk and forgetting this game happened never tasted so good. Hey! Morris fumbled!
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Kinsler goes deep. 10-0||
Kinsler goes deep. 10-0 Tigers. This is fun!
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Huge win to chase Vargas out||
Huge win to chase Vargas out and get their bullpen working this early. That could have implications for the next 2 games.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||Music, good beer, and snacks make this tolerable||
Music, good beer, and snacks make this tolerable for a little bit. And then my 4 month year old boy smiles at me and I realize this all doesn't matter. It sucks and stings for a second, but please folks realize it's a game.
|8 weeks 17 hours ago||The BBQ sauce and rub will||
The BBQ sauce and rub will provide big flavor, so go with an equally bold beer. I like Double IPAs in this case, and it will balance out a sweet bbq sauce.
|8 weeks 20 hours ago||One or two of these isn't||
One or two of these isn't that bad of a cholesterol hit. 2 sliders would probably be somewhere in the 125-150 mg range, which when mixed in with a sensible rest of the day is not bad at all.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||Games are still going on.||
Games are still going on. There's another game tomorrow too, so I would guess the polls will be updated on Tuesday.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||Michigan won, Stoke City beat||
Michigan won, Stoke City beat Man City, I'm drunk, all is good and right with the world. Go Blue.
