Little Free Beer Fridge

When I see something like this:

Forget the dark side of beer and 21+ rule for a moment. Wouldn’t it be rad to have a little beer version of this and it wasn’t taken advantage of?

You know, not become a dumping ground for beer buried in your fridge but be something with good little beers for people that cant always afford one.

Just beer dreaming.

I Had Pliny The Younger In Fresno and It Was Special

I am sorry for being a douche here but I had Pliny The Younger today. And it was as perfect as it ever was.

Totally was not expecting to have it. I knew it was in town but I wasn’t in the mood to wait in line then not get any, so I didn’t put it on my radar.

But, so, I met a friend at Out Of The Barrel to exchange some beers. He was on his way to meet friend at another local beer bar, Goldstein’s, to see if he could get some Younger.

I said “oh geeez, okay, what the hell, I go with you!” Thinking it will be pointless but at least I can say I tried.

To my surprise, I walked right in, went to the bar, immediately got someone over to ask what I wanted. I was feeling embarrassed because surely they no longer had the Younger since they tapped the keg an hour ago, but I asked anyway

Me “You don’t happen to still have any Pliny the Younger do you?”

Bartender “Yes, we do!”

Me (Slightly shocked and excited) ”Oh my gosh… um I will have one please.”

And so it came to be. I politely and unceremoniously walked into a Fresno bar and had one of the most sought after beers in the world.

It was amazing as always. The aroma brought back all the great times I have had with beer. I am very thankful to have had it in my town. I hope all beer lovers get to have it one day.

There Is Nothing Worse Than An Empty Can Of Beer

Pizza Port’s “Open Itinerary” IPA was there for me this time

Are you like me, when in a drinking session? Still desiring beer but knowing you only have one more beer left you can drink, and you try pouring some beer into your empty glass and find out the can is already empty?

It’s terrifying.

Well just now I had that situation except there was ACTUALLY beer in the can still! What I win.

Today’s lesson: Not everything sucks all the time.

It Took A Wordle Buyout For You Beer Pricks To Feel It

Just stopping to notice something about a certain group of Beer Twitter people.

The people that made fun of us Indie Beer supporters being upset at our favorite breweries getting bought-out. The people that trashed us and the Craft Beer movement.

I see many of those people getting upset about New York Times buying out Wordle. Fearing that New York Times will exploit the wholesomeness of the game app.

Well well well. Now you finally get how we feel. It just took a word game app instead of a brewery buyout, to do it.
