    Every three months I host a karaoke party at my place (over 14,000 pirated karaoke jams on a bar karaoke setup). Saturday is the day for the next one. We will have a bottle share of who knows what.....can't wait. Hoops Cat, text me. You should come by. It is good times. Keep an eye on Untappd for the fallen soldiers list, Phish!

    I heard that Toronado in San Diego did that...

    I had a "taste" - maybe 3 ounces - of Pliny the Younger at Dark Lord Day about 4 years ago.

    I recall it tasting like beer...

    I have a connection in Portland who has shipped me the Elder (4bottles). I can shake the tree and see if she can get the younger.

    Could've happened in SD too. Linked an article. It was $7 not $5.50..my bad. Either way I dont wait in line for beer or restaurants. Too many quality choices out there to wait.

    PS stupid app jacked up my post. Need to just use safari on my phone

    The Younger is not bottled. Tap only. And a long wait in line in most cases.

    18th St has been trying to control after market pricing, but they are having a hard time. Beer peeps are bitching at 18th like its their fault, but once the brew leaves the kettle, there's not much 18th can do about it.

    I paid (I think) $11 / bottle for that beverage, at 18th.

    And released only on one day.

    It's Russian River's equivalent to Dark Lord Day, and they had a similar experience as did 3 Floyds - on the day that they were releasing it (this is a few years back) they had lines out the door for miles. A total clusterphcuk beyond epic proportions, where regular patrons were squeezed out by beer Ahabs just chasing a whale. The owners almost cancelled doing it ever again, but tried to modify how they did it, so they now reserve kegs for the bar and for loyal beer bars (like Toronado in San Francisco and San Diego), and limit how much they sell the day of.

    Now that I have your attention....I owe you a box. I was going to ship it a weekish or two ago, but you were showing Mrs O a good time in Vegas, and I didn't want this languishing in the brutal heat of a Minnesota spring. Or letting Little O get his hands on it. Either way - I gots busy, and then started navel staring or sumtin....Anywho - look for something sweet on your beer horizon....

    I've heard the stories. Not good times for a beer.

    You are a king amongst mere princes, Hoops. Me and you are copacetic.

    Little O is now living in Minneapolis, doing what young men do. The apple didn't fall far from the tree.

    Thanks to Ovaltine for his care package today.

    Already chilled and consumed the Light Speed APA while grilling some veggies to pour over my udon noodle and thai basil sauce.

    Better place to take my beer snob brother on Friday:
    Twenty Tap or Hops Cat? Both are close to my place and will draw less of a groan than Ale Emporium. He lives in seattle and would likely hate... hate the ALE

    Easily 20 tap. Food is better and the beer selection, while smaller, is just as good and front loaded with local stuff.

    Love the Ninja vs Unicorn and Raspberry Truffle Abduction. Cherry Abduction was better in my mind. Picked up a bomber of Reaper vs Unicorn (rye Barleywine ale) the other day. Haven't tried it yet

    Debating what to drink tonight. Already had a Hop Stoopid. My favorite $4.99 bomber

    Have you had Bedlam? I "grew up" with Hopalicious, but Bedlam is my favorite from Ale Aslyum.

    Ethanol is a poison, when the body has had enough it signals the brain to void it as to avoid harming the organs. Puking is a natural and normal result of drinking and a sign of a healthy system. Phish's system is most likely malfunctioning, or just too tired, and has given up. Liver and brain damage is in his future if not his present.

    lol ...

    There are exceptions to every rule. Drank Two Hearted at a friend's kegger a few years ago and the host's husband kept refilling your cup, even if it was 1/2 full. I lost track pretty easily while talking with people and by the time I realized I was past Go, well, I was wayyyyyyy past Go. That was an ugly night, with the next day being almost nearly as fugly. That hadn't happened before or since.

    I'm trying to figure out where things went south between us again? I've tried to leave you alone and have had some decent exchanges with you over the last year or so. Then this mkpeters shitwad shows up and you think he's me and start in on me again?! I don't get it?!
