This is a heckuva beer. First of all, let’s all think back a couple of weeks ago to spring fever starting to hit. The snow was melting, dark cold days were turning warmer and lighter, winter clothes were put away, and there was excitement and anticipation for patio weather and the cottage weekends to come. … Continue reading Beer Blog #12: Farmer’s Daughter
If you followed along last season, you'd know that a certain horse went winless in all 16 races last season. Well, after an offseason that included a name change and a ton of intense training, he finally has his first DAR win! Enjoy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GMIAWTTSou0
Let me take you back to grade 2. My English teacher was Mr. Cameron. I loved the guy. Can’t tell you anything I learned that year, but Mr. Cameron was the man. What a thrill it was to have him for the year. He was the one teacher who I didn't want a supply teacher … Continue reading Scarfgate: My Grade Two Tragedy
I guess there was a sale on Stella as I ended up with three tallboy 6-packs for my birthday. Luckily, I enjoy Stella. It’s a smooth beer that you can have a few of at once (something I’ve come to realize this past week). It’s a crisp beer with no bad aftertaste that gets the … Continue reading Beer Blog #11: Stella Artois

Let's go back a ways for this one. I think I was 12 years old. I played hockey and baseball growing up but hockey was my true love. There were times when I didn’t feel like going to baseball- practices were usually pretty boring, and the cold weather games were a drag. Hockey, though, was … Continue reading Hockey’s Version of the Jordan ‘Flu Game’

Had the Braves won by 1 more run, I would've been a perfect 3-0 on the day. That's alright, I think I saved my … Continue reading Sports Bets: April 17th
The best part of this beer is the can- the mountains turn blue to show you when it's cold enough to drink. Genius, really. That in itself lifts it above Bud Light.
