  1. lawson's finest liquids little sip ipa - 6.2% abv, brewed at two roads in stratford ct. I just looked up my first post about this and apparently I really hated it, which is consitent with the way I remember it was on draft at my local (which doesn't have the cleanest tap lines), but I liked their double sunshine with grapefruit a lot and thought this would probably taste better to me now that I'm not drinking dipas all the time. and... this is a little better than the way I remembered it. this is as citra focused as the other similarly named beers from lawson's, and has the same mixture of cit
  2. the rehersal on hbo. one of the strangest, most unique comedies I’ve seen. it’s a lot better than nathan for you.
  3. three floyd’s zombie ice double pale ale - 8.5% abv. as the name suggests this is the bigger version of 3f’s zombie dust, an all citra “pale ale” that’s gone from one of the best beers I’ve had to a solid option at the grocery store that doesn’t really sell that quickly over the last ten years. it’s hard to say what’s changed more over that time, of course, but the pilsner that came in the same variety pack was excellent and it’s hard not to be a little disappointed by this. it’s about the same color of slightly amber yellow as zombie dust, and isn’t really any maltier. this has a big set of o
  4. three floyds jinx proof lager -5.7% abv. this is exactly what I want from three floyds - a well made, super clean, very american beer that's extremely hoppy and stronger than it tastes but still quaffable. this was a part of their year round lineup a while ago (beer advocate says 2009) and is back as part of their new sampler. it's named for a dc tattoo shop that I never liked that much, but this is a lot cooler than all the lame branding stuff hardy was doing back then and so on. this has a fairly sweet malt presence and a ton of grassy noble hop spice that has a little bit of tea and a fruit
  5. that's what I was thinking was the problem. you can roast the shit out of a hepworth farms carrot and it's not gonna taste like what they serve there.
  6. the st john instagram says that those are the only dishes they'll be offering.
  7. I think the food at st john is especially poorly suited to replication elsewhere.
  8. you’re hardly alone in liking their stuff, I picked them up because I keep seeing positive things about them online. I’m sure the backdrop and being on vacation didn’t hurt either. I guess it’s possible these were made in north carolina.
  9. here are four (hopefully brief) reviews of ipas from new belgium - I don't normally knowingly drink beers owned by large conglomerates, but I keep coming across stuff on the web that says that these are by far the best mass produced hazy ipas and my curiosity got the better of me. as you'll see I was under the mistaken impression that the entire voodoo ranger series is hazy, which is why you read the can before you purchase I guess. new belgium voodoo ranger ipa - 7% abv. this one has amaraillo, cascade, mosiac, chinook, hbc 522, mosaic (they list it twice), citra, and strata - this is a
  10. grimm cloudbusting #10 double india pale ale nectaron, nelson sauvin, riwaka, and southern cross - 8% abv. this was probably my fourth favorite grimm dipa when grimm dipas were about as good as any beer I’d ever had. I can’t bring myself to try a new branch of one of the other three, but I really liked this the last time I had it and the hop bill in this one is really appealing. this pours an opaque shade of yellow orange that looks like apricot juice and tastes more like bitter peach juice than anything else. the bitterness tastes a little bit like new zealand hops, but this has a lot more ho

    I’ve had the pizza he was selling in union square. if dop or pda (two random fancy pizza places in park slope) started selling his pizza without using his name no one would notice.
  12. sierra nevada bigfoot barleywine-style ale - 9.6% abv. this is my yearly post about how much I like this, the larger version of celebration, one of the other sierra beers I say the same thing about every year. it’s got the exact same ingredients (carmalized malts, two-row, cascade, centennial, chinook, and ale yeast) and is about as similar as you’d think two beers with the same ingredients made by the same brewery would be. the big difference is the 2.8% abv, which as I always mention is smaller than the gap was when I first had this more than twenty years ago. (an occasion which is surprisin
  13. that really sounds terrific.
  14. the alchemist heady topper ale - 8% abv. I’ve posted about this well known beer a few times and have probably had another half dozen or so cans in bars since they started sending cans down here a few years ago. I’ve enjoyed it every time I’ve had it, as you’d expect for something that still feels special every time I have it, but I haven’t had enough to really get a handle on how this tastes. while I’ve always consumed them the day I got them this is the first time I’ve seen a dated can, so I guess it’s the first time I’m certain these cans are fresh. (about two and a half weeks, which is the

    wft is really winning the offseason this year. could set us up for sustained success!
  17. I went to college with a dude with that name. not a redhead.
  18. the mister beast restaurant in the american dream mall is decorated with money, as it has to be.
  19. all that and you don't say what you thought of the shiio koji.
  20. your scan doesn't show up in either browser on my laptop.
  21. fleischers would sell thinly sliced meat for cheese steaks if you asked them - they would freeze it for a bit first and then slice it. I learned how to make pretty good fries during the pandemic. I have a lodge dutch oven that works pretty well, the oil lasts a really long time if you don't fry meat.
