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:
If Beer Twitter didn’t love to talk about hard seltzers so much, I don’t think I would notice them anymore.
When seltzers started becoming big and trending and we started seeing big ends of them at the grocery store and it was White Claw Summer and all that, yes, I noticed.
But now, seltzers blend into the background for me.
I can still get all the same Indie Beer I could before the seltzer boom. The taps are mostly the same. The part of the shelf I look at for beer in the grocery store, looks the same.
Although I think the Big Beer section looks like it has more seltzers and less beer, but I really don’t know.
So, what is the fuss?
Lot's of side conversations, but I'm going to leave you with this tonight. Professional brewing is a business. That means you need to make money. That also means that you are going to have to make things you don't like.
