Here’s a rundown of the beers I had this week. See any you like? Let me know in the comments. Be sure to follow me on Twitter or Untappd if you for some reason want to see what I’m drinking sort of in real-time.
This wasn’t much of a beer week. I went to a party on Sunday and had a chance to sample a couple brews there, then nothing until Thursday. I’ll include Saturday since this is the first time I’ve done this, and there were some good beers that night, too:
Many years ago, we gave my father a home brewing kit. I’m talking so many years ago that I don’t even remember whether he even used it. But the takeaway is that my father has had an affinity for local craft beers for quite some time (and it appears he’s passed that on to me).
Beer cocktails have been exploding, covering everyone nearby with strange mixtures and surprised facial expressions in popularity lately.
Recently a friend was looking for an excuse and a theme for a party, and I suggested beer cocktails. After the initial rush of “This is gon’ be the most epic shindig evarrrrrr,” there was some question as to how to keep things from getting too complicated and turning my friend’s kitchen into a warzone.
I saw something completely unacceptable at the store today:
Totally, one hundred percent Godwin’s Law wrong. It’s August. August. I refuse to eat or drink anything with Pumpkin in it before October. Maybe late September. Yes, that includes coffee. And especially beer. Especially.
Don’t get me wrong; I like me a good pumpkin beer, even though I’m kinda picky about them. But I should be drinking summer brews through late September, and then finishing off my fall seasonals in November. At this rate, we’ll probably start seeing winter beers on September 1.

Breweries, I beg of you… Please… wait three more weeks for this stuff. Seriously. I’ll respect you so much more for it.
