So here I am sitting pool side at a 4th of july picnic at the girlfriends grandfathers house. There usually is no beer at these type of events (probably because he is a federal judge), but today I though hey ill bring a sixer of my home brew for myself and maybe one or two others to enjoy. I'm sitting here on my fourth small cup of my underhop ipa. I'm thinking oh god half of my sixer is gone allready and soon ill be out of beer.

Next what happens someone brings a cooler and says hey I brought the beer. My ears perk up and I get excited. Yuengling? Sam Adams? SN pale ale? Hell even miller light?

Nope. Flipping coors light. Sob. Might as well brought pee in a bottle. Now back to drinking real beer.

I ran out of Capital supper club yesterday while out on the water and was forced to switch to keystone light. It tasted like water, which was good since it was hot and sunny.

Just relax and contemplate the hydration you'll get. You won't need a bottle of water for awhile.

i bought some Redhook ESB for my bbq. just had one, and i'm wishing i'd gotten something lighter. i'd actually consider a lager right now.

luckily, the cooler is full of Skeeter Pee.

I scored a conversion victory Sunday... went to some friends for pool time and cookout and brought a 12'er of my El Jefe Weizen. My friend Jules (who's drinking BL Lime) asks what I brought. So I pop a top and hand her one and she's all "damn this is good - I could down a bunch of these" and proceeds to pour out her remaining BL Lime and drink my beers with me until they were gone. Victory is mine!!

A friend of mine brought Blue Moon Summer to my house yesterday. Not something I'd order at a bar, but pretty tasty and refreshing when you've been out in the sun. I also made my first attempt at barbecue. I brined and rubbed a pork butt, then smoked it for about 8 hours yesterday. For my first try, it came out really well.
