Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

It's my second beer from Speakeasy and I enjoyed it quite a bit. Definitely worth picking up if you can find it in your area.

Spent the evening at the Folk Music festival and had a blast... saved the drinking for afterwards.

A few fingers of rye are wrapping things up nicely.

Not great but not terrible. I'd say it's one of the weakest IPAs I've tried.

oh man. bulleit is great. their rye is excellent too - i might even like it better than the bourbon. other good affordable bourbons & ryes:
buffalo trace
templeton rye
woodford reserve
old overholt rye

jack is gross. i bought a huge bottle of it on sale forever ago and can't finish the damn thing. big mistake.

Maybe it is a "hipster" thing, but I know in the Seattle area especially that micro-breweries and craft beer are fairly prominent amongst the youngsters - myself included.

jack was literally the first drink i ever had so we gots history, its nothing special by any means and the night usually ends badly once i get started on it
i dont drink very much either so its one of those "if it aint broke dont fix it" feels

thanks [MENTION=112127]johnnytheboy[/MENTION] 's & girls
i think i might have to get both the bourbon and the rye, who needs a working car anyway?

90 Min is the jam. My current fav is Peak Organic IPA and I'm also all about White Hawk from Mendocino Brewing Co.

Right now: Henry Weinhard's IPA. I was at the store the other day and it didn't have ABV printed on the label, so I decided to play my favorite guessing game--the guess how much alcohol is in it game. I judge on a combination of taste and how drunk I get, then check my guesses online. Totally nailed this one. As a beer though, it's just aite.

I'm a huge fan of Chainbreaker right now, mostly cause it's summer time and it's perfect for drinking by the river.

Outside of that I drink about 95% Rainier or High Life.
