Because the colder it is, the less you can taste it

Come on, can you even count the number of times you said "I think I'll have an ice-cold O'Doul's!"?

I keep smashing the cans with my work boots before I can take and post a pic lol. I saw you at the Stones concert in Austin donít lie it was an awesome show. Iím glad I sent you the ticket and it was scanned so I know you were there. Dang it was biblical to me seeing rock gods in person playing great music and seeing them having a great time. Still in awe I am and that is very cool.

Canít get no satisfaction lol. Bad Azz.

does it count if it’s a local place where i consume beer? hadda crush two belgians…both pretty decent and one with my fave all-time nose. both on tap and one freshly so. love the craft scene here in san diego but it’s nice to travel once in a while…





p.s....prefer to drink the belgian stuff while listening to the stones oeuvre from 1966-1967. the psychedelic stuff. we love you. 2000 light years from home.
ruby tuesday. dandelion. child of the moon. lady jane. she's a rainbow. 2000 man. citadel. all that plus anything from the dylan-influenced between the buttons album
during that time.

"Czech style Pilsner" gives some confidence in the sense they identified what to aim for and what standard to reach.

Anyway, I was in the supermarket this weekend and it was very busy because of new covid rules concentrating as many people at the same time. So I was waiting for the beer shelves until other customers had made their choice. There was one Spanish family unfamiliar with the brands on display taking particularly long making their choice. After eyecontact I decided to help and explained the mother that the one in here hands was a nothing special but fine German style pilsner. The funny thing is, I actually don't speak Spanish, but I did. Isn't it lovely how beer brings people together even before drinking it?

Cloud Cap Amber, Mt Hood brewing. Draft, 22oz. Tasty. Very pricey here at the Timberline Lodge, but then so it's everything else. Doing my part to keep the lodge open.

Cloud Cap Ale's namesake is a wagon road on the NE side of Mount Hood. I rode up there earlier this year on the first leg of the Oregon Six Passes SR600, which makes it taste even better.

IMO, Brewers who add flavorings to beer should be drawn and quartered.

Beer is good enough to stand on its own.

Wow. That's harsh. I think I crossed the line with Cacao nibs. Probably a few times. Sorry.

Yeah... Maybe certain additions...


I do like cocoa nibs though, in select stouts. But lime, or cucumber... Uh... Drawn and quartered.

Beers have been brewed with fruit for 9000 years. Things like the Reinheitsgebot stifle innovation and creativity.

Staying with Mt Hood brewing from my previous post, with lunch i had Meadow blonde ale, and am currently enjoying Hogshead oatmeal stout. Cloud Cap is my favorite this far.

could post dozens of beers and a list of must have/must visit breweries in san diego county now but thinking of stringing out the thread with posts of essential sd co beers as they get crushed.
Love riding to Pizza Port and drinking one of their IPA's while watching all the beach cruising action and especially like taking a stop at Swami's to checkout the surfing scene

I have a group of friends that once a year rides 'Port2Port2Port2Port', various people drop in/out at various points, but the fullest version is ride up to Pizza Port San Clemente, have pizza Fri night, spend the night, then ride south for lunch at PP Carlsbad, a beer at PP Solana Beach, and dinner at PP OB

Luckily I got there early and avoided being in a massive traffic jam. Some unfortunate souls didn’t even make it there. But I was prepared with food and beer to tailgate hours before catching a buzz so the 9 dollar beer wouldn’t drain the funds lol. Then 2 hours post concert tailgating due to another traffic jam. Didn’t get back to the hotel until 2. Otherwise everything was great. Riding your gravel bike to the venue would have been the way to go.

Here is a cheap snob beer lol.

Jamming to The Rolling Stone. Yup music even before I was born but it is new to me. Pre 1968. The early 70s material I like the best. Now I know make the neighbors were smoking that had a sweet smell back the. LoL.
