Last three Fridays I’ve gotten a growler from a local place trying to do some business during lockdown. They’re doing $10 growler fills of anything they have on tap. First week I got an IPA with a BA rating of 99 (Surly The Axeman). Didn’t get one tonight and drinking up a few loose cans/bottles waiting on the spinach artichoke dip to finish. Currently wrapping up a Mad Elf. Next up is either a Blithering Idiot (how appropriate) or an Old Rasputin. Will likely throttle down to some left over Oktoberfest, if the others don’t knock me out first. So UIC, watcha drinking tonight?
Add: that was quick and Blithering Idiot it is. Gonna have to save the Raspy for tomorrow or later, even though it’s definitely stout weather here in Western Pa tonight.
Almost done with the Victory Festbier. Not a bad Octoberfest, but it’s beyond it’s season. Time to drink it up. In search of some notable ones this weekend. However, recalled that I have a few special stash types, a couple Rocheforts and a World Wide Stout. They’ve been aging for a long time and should probably be consumed soon. C’mon UIC, share your beers this weekend.
a 1950s mono white label promo 1A/1A pressing Carl Perkins Whole Lotta Shakin' lp showed up on my porch yesterday, so I went for Nonino Moscato Grappa before dropping the lp on the turntable As Jimmy Cagney said--"Top of the world, Ma!"

crazy Derby party yesterday afternoon high octane juleps crushed a few, esp when followed up with seriously high end Cabernets fortunately I misplaced my julep glass early on everyone had their own year Derby glass, documented to keep others from drinking someone else's socially distance, of course!
Nobody posting here in awhile. Tonight's brew is Six Point Hootie, a hazy IPA that has gotten a Beer Advocate score of 88. A local distributor had a sale on this and, with tax, it came to $20 for a case. Very nice deal (I went back the next day and grabbed another). Prior to that I got a great deal on Victory Summer Love, which is indeed a nice summer beer that if you don't love you'll probably at least like a fair amount.
