Ouch

Believe it or not, the Larson Bros. have hung out together outside of the home two Thursdays in a row! It is an unfortunate fact that we don't chill together this way nearly enough.

Hardware didn't have the Westmalle Dubbel, which was a disappointment, but they did have the De Rocs Grand Cru. (e:Joshua) wowed some foreigners by telling them exactly what part of England they were from. I still don't know the difference between, say, a Birmingham accent and a Leeds accent. They recommended the Mackeson triple stout which was delicious.

We then decided to conserve some funds and hit up Village Beer Merchant, getting the Dogfish Head Indian Brown Ale (I give it 5 out of 5 failing livers, awesome beer) and a bottle of some kind of upgraded Schneider Weisse - and I'm warning you guys if you buy the upgraded Schneider Weisse to respect it. The Grand Cru was stiff but this particular wheat beer packed a sucker punch that still stings this very moment.

So there you have it - a tour of some of Europe's most respectable beer nations and a return to America, which to me is an amazing beer nation if you know what to look for. Beer from 4 countries in one night. Wowsa.

CCTV Boom in UK = Failure?

Our lovely city administrators should have been paying attention before adopting a technology that won't even do what they say it is there to do. Any chance of something like this being said in the Buffalo News?

Flying Bison Brewery Tour

Buying beer from the owner/brewer of the brewery is a unique experience, something that felt quite satisfying. I like shaking the hand of the man who made my beer. I am definitely going to make a point of it to buy beer at the Flying Bison Brewery again in the future. I bought a 5 gallon mini-keg, I have a shitload of this Blizzard Bock left, and I have to say it is fucking awesome. I don't know why I haven't seen this at local stores before. Anyone seen it?
