Rising to the top of my favorite beer personalities on TikTok/Instagram is Santa Fe Brewing’s “Addie” aka @dirtyspice.
She has a unique energy unmatched in the Beer Tok and brewery promoting space.
Keep it up, Santa Fe Brewing! I don’t know if I’ll ever have a chance to have your beer but I love watching Addie’s creative promotion of it.
Yesterday I had a Pliny while watching War Games – an 80s movie I love that’s sadly become insanely timely again. Outside of a couple cheeseball moments, the original hacker flick, still holds up.
It’ll make you miss the beginnings of the Internet and the 80s bedroom of your rich friend.
Side note: “Jennifer & David” are one of the most adorable couples in film – mark it down.
A Pliny is a wonderful beer to have while watching this feels-like-a-Spielberg-film-but-isn’t, classic.
The Russian River and Pliny label esthetic has always had an analog feel, much like how War Games somehow feels like when the Internet was analog.
My only wish is I had a second Pliny as mine went empty early on. I also wish I had a standup Galaga machine but that’s a whole other thing.
War Games is currently available on Netflix and Pliny is where you can find it – but you knew that.
I am starting a new feature on the blog: Something I did while drinking a beer. (It could use a better name)
Well, I guess it’s sort of a spin-off of my Ambient Reviews.
Anyway, these are things that happened while drinking a Pale from Elk Grove’s Flatland Brewing called “The Local – Sacramento Style Pale”.
I was sitting in my backyard and…
I saw several birds. There was a sparrow and a bluejay that ate some food from my bird feeder.
I listened to the PA of this high school baseball game being played a half-block away:
Listened to a hotrod rumble through my neighborhood.
Saw a squirrel bury something in my planter bed.
Agreed on how nice a day it is:
Earned the “To Go Level 48” badge while checking this beer in on Untappd.
Admired my new Brumate with painted metal that makes it feel like a car finish.
And that takes us to the end of the beer. Thanks for reading! 🍻✌️
I am dutifully having my fourth (16oz) beer of today’s session. I have yet to feel a real buzz all day. But right now the room is “moving” – like, pulsing in a way.
Okay it seems to have stopped. Carrying on.
