Drink Moar Stouts


Lagunitas High Westified is the best bang for the buck beer of the year. Hands down. This could easily be $15 for a bomber.

More Science!!!!


Firestone Walker Parabola + Lagunitas High Westified = a beer that is superior to its components.



Alesmith Mokasida Speedway with Vanilla Beans: Sealed in a growler with 2 vanilla beans for 2 and a half weeks. This beer is fantastic. Tons of vanilla, but not enough to come across as sweet because Mokasida Speedway is so roasty to begin with. Mouthfeel is delicious, delicious motor oil and the finish is classic Speedway with some lingering bitterness. 10/10 would bang again. I love science.

Fatali Four


Upright Fatali Four: Great beer as always, but something was going on with this bottle. It had a bit of a ropey mouthfeel, and was really viscous, almost slimey. Perhaps this bottle caught some sort of pedio bug that hasn’t been cleaned up yet.

Christmas Bomb


Tastes like Bourbon County Proprietors 2014. For $7.50 a bottle, 100% worth it.

Merry Christmas


Whoops, missed one.

Last but not least in our Grand Tour drinking session…


Sante Adairius Nonna’s Blend #11: Oh dang, I only just realized that this beer was 8.1%. That’s amazing. This was the best beer of the night and I could drink this all day long. Probably the best batch of Nonna’s since 7.

Grand Tour, welcome back!

Finally, an episode of The Grand Tour that I enjoyed as much as old Top Gear episodes! On that note, please get rid of the gags that make fun of Top Gear, like conversation street, the American (he sucks, just bring back Ben Collins as Ben Collins), and Celebrity Mind Crash (it was the worst part of the old show anyway).


de Garde The Marion: This beer is awesome, I’m not going to lie and pretend to know what marionberries taste like, but this beer is relatively complex with funk, not terribly sour, and is a jam bomb.


de Garde The Archer: There is a ton of pinot presence here. Too much for my taste, so I’m just going to wait on my other bottle and let the bacteria in the beer mellow out the wine characteristics and bring out more funk and lambic-esque qualities. That being said, those snobby wine guys would love this.

I hate new things

Well, when these new things are climbing shoes. This is what women in China must have felt like when they had bound feet. My feet are on fire. Can’t wait to break these things in so they’re comfortable. Dear homeless person with my old pair of climbing shoes, I hope you try to eat those shoes so you can taste my stinky, stinky feet!


I feel better now.

Drink away the pain.

Last week was a rough one regarding awful people stealing my shit. Multiple instances over several days and the key in my roof rack broke when I tried to get my snowboard of my roof rack at the mountain.


It’s all good though, just go quietly into the night….
