Harrison Ford & Ridley Scott Having a Fosters

I can’t tell you how much I love this picture of Harrison Ford and Director Ridley Scott, working out stuff before filming Blade Runner.

As a big Harrison Ford nerd (I have a podcast about him) and a beer nerd, this picture checks all my boxes.

Seeing Harrison laying on the floor is so very… Harrison. And it’s so very beer too. Having a couple beers and being creative and relaxed is what lo-fi beer drinking is all about and I love it.

I wonder what scene or character trait the two were working out. Maybe they were just talking about life. It’s magical what a couple of Foster oilcans can do.

What Beer Are These Two Bucks Fans Drinking?

Downing Beers In The Deer District

I dunno if you’ve been watching the NBA Finals with the Phoenix Suns and the Milwaukee Bucks but a story within the series is the “Deer District” outside the Buck’s arena.

It’s pretty much 20,000 + of mostly 20-somethings, partying and watching the games on big screens outside.

ABC loves to cut to the Deer District during the games and even pre-game, like with this clip:

Did you see the two dudes timing their beer drinking as the camera goes by? Cool except, as a beer nerd I want to know what they’re drinking.

Their hands unfortunately covered up the beer label. You can glimpse a little bit but not enough. It doesn’t look like a beer I recognize.

An Investigation Is In Order

So, are there any beer places by the Bucks arena?

Let’s take a look at the area around the arena and see if that gives us any clues:

Do you see it? Good City Brewing. That’s right there, man.

A quick check of their Instagram reveals:…

Ohhhh yeah that’s gotta be it; Home, a Lager from Good City.

Cool, glad to see Indie Beer on National TV. Keep having fun, Deer District, and Go Suns!

Ambiant Review: Tioga Sequoia “Bridalveil Lager”

The beer subject: Bridalveil Lager

I am not okay with giving straight reviews of beers. Either reviewing beer bores me or I simply suck at it, or both.

So this is the closest I can come to a beer review. In the roughly 20 minutes it took to drink this, these are some thoughts and things.

BEER DETAILS:

  • Name: Bridalveil Lager.
  • Brewer: Tioga Sequoia (Fresno,CA).
  • Style: American Lager.
  • ABV: 4.5%

THOUGHTS & SETTING:

  • 3:50PM. Fresno. On my patio at a table in my backyard. 94 degrees.
  • Music: “Citizen Erased” by Muse plays in the background.
  • Woah. This beer is easy to drink – I mean that in a good way.
  • I wonder how many people know that Bridalveil Falls is in Yosemite – that can be a very dangerous hike up that trail, super slick.
  • Oh hey, a little breeze. Maybe a 10mph gust.
  • Is Muse an underrated band or are they rated properly and I just haven’t paid attention?
  • Someone odd parked across the street. [inspects]. It appears to be someone looking at the house to rent it.
  • A neighbor with their patio on the other side of the fence from my patio, has come outside. She is arguing with her boyfriend whom is still inside. She is yelling back at him things, I can’t help but overhear. The fight seems to be about a friend of his who is a woman and he was defending her. My neighbor is not okay with the amount of positive talking he is doing about this friend.
  • This is a solid Lager. As crisp as the sky is blue right now.

Thanks for coming to my first Ambient Review of a beer. Here is some Muse for you:
