This Brewery Personality Is ‘Not Hiding Anymore‘

“Addie” from Santa Fe Brewing

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.

War Games Is A Perfect Movie To Have With A Pliny

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 Saw A Bird While Drinking A Pale Ale

“The Local” – Sacramento Style Pale Ale from Flatland Brewing

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.

The Hopsator Trio from Brumate is satisfying to hold

And that takes us to the end of the beer. Thanks for reading! 🍻✌️
