Catchin Up

It has been a very long time since I've blogged, which I guess is something that happens to a lot of people. It's tough to keep up, and it's hard to take the time to write things out. But I doubt many people read this so who cares! Oddly enough I have received a few emails from random folks and a couple of comments, so you never know.

At any rate, I have been drinking beer. Lots of it. And I've tried a bunch of great new stuff that I'll probably never try again and they'll be lost forever. Oh well.

A few things I remember drinking:

-Pilsner Urquell, a beer a drink all the time. Probably one of my favorite session beers of all time as it's got everything. Crispness, Saaz hops, bite, flavor, and of course it has all the history and the fact it's THE pilsner.

-Many, many growlers from the Whole Foods beer store on Houston St. Everyone in the city has to go to that store for beer. They have the best selection. New Beer Distributors also has a good selection, but not very well temperature controlled and I question how long they've been on the shelf in some cases. I have gotten dead beers there unfortunately.

-Sierra Nevada Southern Hemisphere Harvest Ale. Fan! Tastic! Love it. Hops from New Zealand and just beautiful. Great aromas and flavors and well balanced.

Also, I recently started homebrewing. I've bottled and had my first couple of an Irish Red I made. More on that soon. Good news is it's beer! But it's just a beer, which is disappointing in some way. It's a tad watery and has some off-flavors I think, but I'm happy it didn't grow mold or something so can't complain. Because, I, made beer. Which is awesome.

Well maybe I'll blog more.
