TGCM, I just went back and reread all the posts from last night. My memory's a little fuzzy this morning, lol. Not sure how I missed it, but I just saw the post about your dog, man. I'm really, really sorry to hear that. May he R.I.P.

Keep your chin up, bud. Thoughts and prayers to you and the family


Thanks Mike! I got SUPER lit last night, which was a temporary way to numb the pain. Now I'm both extremely hung over, and missing my dog.

He was literally my best friend, and most faithful companion for over 13 years, so it's really tough.

I put a lamb shoulder on the smoker at 4:30 AM, while crushing my final beer this morning. I'm doing pulled lamb barbacoa tacos, and my friends mom is visiting from Peru, so she is making ceviche.

Nothing beats a hang over like some super spicy Peruvian ceviche!

Well, I had saved this bottle of super rare, one time release Aslin stout, for a rainy day. With the loss of my precious dog today, this constitutes that rainy day.

This is a 13% Imperial Stout aged in rye whiskey barrels for over a year, with hickory syrup added for that extra cream on the top. There were only 200 bottles of this beer made, and I had to wait over 2 hours to get one. There was a one bottle per person limit on it, so that obviously means that only 200 people and their friends will be able to try it.

The alcohol is completely hidden in that hickory syrup sweetness. There is rye bourbon big time on the nose, on the middle of the tongue, but very distinguishable on the aftertaste. This is an extremely unique beer, and one of the best I have had of this style.

I couldn't think of a better beverage to drown my sorrows with.

This my favorite all time bourbon. I used to get bottles of it 12 years ago for $80. Now they go for $500.

Dry hopped with Citra and Amarillo, and a bit of lactose for some residual sweetness.

A hedge of turbo pubes. There are a ton of pods in there, but mainly buried deep in the foliage.
