Some 12 yrs or so ago, a Brazilian bud of mine, brought me back several boxes of sauces from home. (He moved on many years ago so I can't query him.) Long since used up and gone, I did save a few for my collection. Wouldn't dare eat it now, but from the pics could you tell me what you can about this bottle? I recall it being quite good and a bit harsh with the heat. Thanks for your time

Been rocking the local brewery scene for a while... Mike USMC damn near ruined me with some Tree House brews....
My "go to" craft store recommended some Captain Lawrence out of New York. So it is. Tonight Hop Commander IPA. First one.. not too shabby, but I would stack up a few local ones against it... but again pretty good! Cheers all!
Here's one from a local brewery. IPA with cilantro and Jalapeno. A little out of my box actually... (Iron Mike ruined me last week with some great Treehouse offerings... raised the bar a bit) It is good, not much if any cilantro notes come through, but incredibly heavy on the Jalapeno. Very bold with a slight back of the throat burn. Halfway through the first one. It contains both of my favorite loves (peppers and beer) but it is odd having them both together as such. Got five more, reckon I'll "yea or nay" afterwards..
Can't fault you there, that show produced many wonderful actors/comedians. As a kid when I visited my mom in Niagara Falls for the summer, I would watch the show. I loved the McKenzie brothers eh? Take off Hoser!
Only the one lady "Suzy" who introduced me, tried the products. She did so months ago and that's how I got there - at her behest. A few others after the show tried the salt which was on open display. One cameraman, then a lady with a heaping little spoonful before I could warn her - she went into temporary distress in front of everyone and "taste time" was over. Everybody else bowed out. I gave away all the bottles I brought as props to all the folks there. Perhaps they will try them at their own pace.... The steak was dinner next evening, delicious!
Last week, I was invited to participate in a SCETV (PBS) television show called "Making it Grow." It is a "live" program done by the SC Dept. of Agriculture. They did give me a fair bit of airtime and oddly enough I was more nervous in this than most of my day job police dealings. My "special lady friend" killed it with the visuals (props where due). Don't know the range of audience, but I ain't complaining on the results...... Here's the link. A bit dry - but was fun nonetheless... There were a myriad of rules of things you could/couldn't say. That was a challenge. Did the best I could. If your time/interest permit, check it out.
Got "served" a Yankee care package by MikeUSMC! So cool and unexpected. Some offerings from veteran owned business "Nine Line," a local staple wing sauce and some Tree House brews!! Never had any of these things and look forward to trying everything and will proudly wear the t-shirt! Cheers bud! Good brew tonight ohh-rah! PPATB!
