Saw some one-tooth overall wearing bumpkin get tossed for the same thing. He was a farmer. The guy tried to explain it was fertilizer that tripped the machine but no avail. I'm sure they threw his bags out on the tarmac and let the dogs chew them to pieces.

I hate flying.
I could go on a long rant about what I went through and the absurdity of it all, but perhaps in another thread. I'm on vacation so I just want to go back to drinking beer.

Isn't "horsey" a word we sometimes use to describe saisons and other sour type beers? Seems like it would be a good thing for some.

A nice single malt Irish whiskey my parents bought for me. Super tasty. Neat with a splash of cool water to bring out some flavors.

The TSA agent called the state police and after they interviewed me they determined I posed zero threat, which they relayed to their superiors and they were ready to let me go about my business. But apparently while this interview was going on the TSA dick who found it took a picture of the throwing star and sent it to mother f***ing Washington, D.C. so the head of TSA could look at it and give his opinion. So this prick says that something must be done which forces the cops' collective hand into arresting me as a formality and charging me with 'Tampering with airport security.' According to the arresting officer most cases like this get thrown out, so fingers crossed. Anyway, that's that story, back to drinking beer!
So.... are you now like on a "watch out for this guy who thinks he's a ninja" list or something? That's nuts, glad they figured out that you're just a harmless drunk..... er beer geek. Enjoy Tejas, great place to visit, I have fam in Houston and Dallas. Make sure to check out any Southern Star and Jester King brews you find, I've heard that (512) is great as well. Oh and St. Arnold's.... PM me, I can probably give you a list of must trys.

Going by the BB date, this is last year's bottle. Faded but still very good. Dark fruits and mocha like flavors with a firm bitterness that really lingers. Surprisingly there's still citrus and pine like aroma and flavors too. Still pretty nice, I suspect being cold (~40F) all this time helped.
