I guess it will be Tecate, though I need mexican food and an 80 degree night to make that taste like it's supposed to.

How is the Noble Rot? I presume it's got a sweetness to it. Never had it, myself.

I try not to venture out of the high 80's as we are in the golden age of quality beer.  That said there are some beers that have an inexplicably low rating.  I love the Blithering Idiot and its in the 60's.    I think the "bros" gave Two Hearted a 74.  Its handy though, just because of the statistical approach, and much better than Ratebeer, where everything is in the 90's.

Still drinking up the Heineken.

Made backpacking stoves out of aluminum cans this week. They require Heineken cans, which are thicker and more durable than other kinds of pop/beer cans. So now I'm stuck drinking the rest of it. It's great in the Netherlands, but the stuff that they designate for export is watered-down and a disappointment. Somebody get me a Fat Tire?

Now that it is quiet for a moment around here, I am settling in with Paulaner Salvatore Double Bock and fine tuning my new HP laptop, which replaces a much honored eMachines desktop machine that survived a decade of upgrades and hardware lobotomies until Tuesday night.

I'm alternating between Hopslam and some Idjits I picked up in Philly this week.   I had a Fantome saison this week which was out of this world.  The Dogfish Head barleywine is out, Olde School.  It is fantastic-15% and will knock you down.  Had a few of those this week after gruelingly long days.

Entertain you? Oh I got a story for you.

My fiance and I live in an apartment complex and her best friend lives in the next building. They are avid watchers of the series Psych. Psych is doing a 6 hour "sleepover" marathon thing. 

Once I saw it advertised I jokingly said, "Great, you will invite your friend, have a sleepover, and I'll be stuck cooking." Holy crap why did I ever open my mouth.

We are setting up an air mattress for the two of them to sleep on and watch the marathon. I will be making blueberry pancakes and sausage when the marathon is over at 6 am Central time. During the marathon there is chips and salsa, fruit smoothies, and I will be making Fries Quatro Queso Dos Frios.

For those who don't know, it is a hollowed out potatoe, stuffed with 4 different cheeses, fried, battered, then refried. (If you are curious, you are supposed to use two toothpics to keep the top of the potatoe sealed on for when it is stuffed and then fried). This is also the first time I will be making them.

I am currently drinking just regular shiner bock and do not think I bought enough beer.
