Beer

Beery roundup

I haven\’t rambled semi-coherently about everyone\’s favorite foamy adult beverage in a while, so … – Tickets for the 3rd Annual Atlanta Cask Ale Tasting have been on sale for a while now. \”But Tony, it\’s barely July and the tasting doesn\’t happen until January!\” Listen here, the first two instances of this event sold [...]

Beer is/and sex

Amber tagged me (sort of) to respond to an article published in Augusta\’s newsweekly regarding a correlation between beer choice and sexual profile among men. I started to write a comment on her site, and it quickly spun out of control. So, here is my comment masquerading as an entry on my blog. The original [...]

Jeans?

Two sentence rant: Is it me, or does Technorati have the slowest, shittiest servers on the internet? Seriously, you could get better site performance watching one9ine on a 28k dialup connection. I\’m in the market for some new jeans and I would like some input / feedback. I\’ve talked about my denim ethic before, and [...]

Round upper

All of this business travel makes for great blogging material. The problem is, all of this business travel leaves me with very little time for things like, well, you know. Last week found me in lovely Harrisburg, Pennsylvakia, a mere 40 miles from Lancaster, where Mr. Michael Dougois laid his head for a couple years. [...]

Put your tongue on it

Last night, the Geester and I joined DoubleYew and a patio full of whopping beer dorks for the bi-monthly tasting at The Wild Wing in Marietta. This time around was Bocks and new-to-market beers. Symphony #4 by J.S. Bock: Also, you can click here (110KB) to see a PDF of the \”tasting sheet\” as proof [...]

Basketbeer

Photo: Getty Images I am not what one would call a college basketball fan. Or a fan of basketball in general for that matter. I\’ve just never had anything invested in it. I\’ve never filled out a bracket, I never attended a game at UGA while I was there, and, when routinely offered $100-per-seat tickets [...]

Feelin\’ it

Or, not feeling it, rather. I haven\’t had anything blog-worthy to talk about lately, hence all of the not blogging going on around here. I work, I go to the gym, I hang out on the weekends, I procrastinate. That\’s about it. And there hasn\’t really been an outpouring of concern over my lackluster output, [...]

Picture Catchup 3: Something to which to aspire

Last Sunday, I acquired a special keg of beer. I had received word a few days earlier from one of the local beer geeks that he had \”too much\” Sierra Nevada Bigfoot Barleywine. He purchased a 1/2bbl (15.5 gallons) of Bigfoot, but his kegerator is setup to hold 1/6bbl kegs (5 gallons). Another local beer [...]

Picture catchup

I have a bunch of outdated pictures and a bunch of stories about me drinking beer to post, so sit down and shutup. Two Saturdays ago, I decided to address the two kegs that DoubleYew gave me back in December. See, a few years ago, DoubleYew quit homebrewing. I give him a lot of shit [...]

Also known as Thomas Hooker Hop Meadow IPA and a sammich

This evening, after a quasi-vigorous workout, I started thinking. \”Self,\” I said, \”With all of these calories you\’ve been burning lately, soon I fear you will run out of calories. You need to go find yourself some new calories.\” Enter, my dinner:
