I was tempted to buy some Iron City, but sense got the better of me.  I'm from eastern PA anyway, so my Stupor Bowl beer will be Yuengling--what I drank in college.

Wife got me a sampler pack from Total Wine. Got me edjumacated in the Mon Valley outside of Picksburgh, so Iron City is sentimental for me. But alas, not part of the sampler package. Do hope the yinzers cover though. That could effect my post game consumption.

'09 Allagash Interlude.  I've had it on tap and cask before, but this 2 1/2 year old bottle is far superior.

We watched the Super Bowl at home. This Picksburgh native was disappointed in the result, but we ate and drank well. FG made wings and pizza, and I had Two Hearted standing by either to celebrate or console myself: bittersweet drinking experience.

I also tried the Monty Python Holy Grail Ale. It reminded me of Magic Hat #9 with its light color and body and almost fruity flavor, not a complex brew but nicely drinkable.

Really?  You got that strong apricot aroma & flavor from a British pale ale?  For my palate Magic Hat #9 is not almost fruity but very fruit forward followed by some hop bitterness.

Despite the name Holy Grail Ale is not British, but a product of Black Sheep Brewery in Rochester NY. It doesn't call itself any particular style of ale, nor does it list fruits in its ingredients, but it definitely was like #9 in the apricot aroma and flavor.

A little Googling reveals that Holy Grail is brewed under contract in Rochester for the Black Sheep (UK) Brewery.

Beer Advocate deems the style a British Pale Ale.

De Struise Black Albert.  Half a case came to Green's a few years ago that they had kept in the back unless someone asked for one.  They went ahead and put the remaining bottles on the shelf a week or two ago so I got them all.

2005 Kriek De Ranke.  Very nice sour kriek, a blend of 2 sour pales, a geuze, and a bunch of Polish cherries.

Ginga Kogen unfiltered - a nice weisen with apple flavor, rather crip. Seems a great warm weather beer. Made up in Nasu, about 120 miles N of Tokyo in snow central. A little expensive for what it does.

Last night I found a bottle of Old Curmudgeon in my beer fridge.  Though I truly like the beer and think it is much better on draught, I had sortof forgotten how boozy it tasted as it warmed up.  None of my truly favorite beers are oak barrel aged or aged in bourbon barrels and such.  I guess this bottle has been in the back of the fridge for a while-- reading a bit about it on RateBeer I see that only the 2006 bottled vintage of this beer was bourbon barrel aged.

Founders makes some very tasty products.

I currently have the Ommegang Chocolate Indulgence 10 Year Anniversary if front of me as I type, because "Partaking is my passion" to coin a phrase...
Have you ever listened to someone for a while and wondered, who ties your shoelaces?

You can't do epic shit with basic people.

Beer is why I get up every afternoon.
