Good evening fellow beer (and maybe blogging) enthusiast. I’m starting late tonight because of a busy day of being a dad, watching the ending to Spike Lee’s HBO Epicenters series on 9/11 (it’s good) and the fact that I only have three beers.
I knew I wasn’t going to be able to buy more beers today and I only had three left so I waited as long as I could so I could have a decent drinking session and maybe have a productive buzz.
Live Drinking Blog:
Mammoth Brewing’s “Yosemite Pale” is beer number one. A beer I am familiar with, nicely priced, and a little bit old-school but not in a bad way.
So, do I have this right: GABF (virtual) and Craft Brewers Conference (in person) happened roughly at the same time this year? … um ookay?…
10:18: New Beer Alert! 🚨 Wren House Brewing session IPA. Super stoked to have Phoenix’s Wren House in Fresno somehow:
Watching Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Chrystal Skull because that is what’s on at the moment (Showtime). It’s still a large disappointment but it also isn’t that terrible.
Another nice night in Fresno:
12:29: I’m back! I had a bit of a family emergency but everything is cool now. On to my 3rd and final beer:
1:33AM PST: What a rip. Never achieved a buzz. Just disappointment. Oh freaking well. Maybe next Saturday.

I have been experimenting the past couple weekends with these kind of posts. A mix of live-blog, drinking forecasting and buzzed journaling. Even though it hasn’t taken off yet, I kinda like doing them so I’ll keep it up for now.
We give so much of our writing and energy to posting on other peoples sites (Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Untappd bla bla bla…), sometimes it’s nice to keep that energy on your own blog, ya know?
I will be updating this blog post throughout the day (when time allows) so just check back in occasionally by hitting refresh on your browser when you have the post pulled up. Comments are open to you as well if you ever feel the need to ad something.
TODAY’S DRINKING FORECAST
High chance of buzz rolling in by afternoon as no events outside of the house are planned. No need to drive anywhere once errands are done and no serious family needs predicted at this time.
Just enough beer budget today to supply a full Saturday of drinking.
Events to watch: Hurricane Ida approach Gulf states. Oakland A’s game vs. Yanks. Fresno State Football season opening game. New episode of Ted Lasso. SNL repeat at 11:30 PM.
Greetings! Happy Saturday to you (or Sunday?for those on the other side).
I will be live-blogging my drinking tonight the best I can.
For you kids that missed the good old days of blogging, a live-blog is a rolling update of some sort of event that is contained within a blog post. You will have to refresh this page to see any updates.
Comments are open if you want to make fun if me at any point. I plan on updating occasionally well into the night. Hope you enjoy!
THE FRESH UPDATES WILL APPEAR DIRECTLY BELOW THIS LINE:
