February 4, 2012 - BEFF's - Southern Tier Matt & Phin's Extraordinary Ale

Hello, my name Michael and I'm an afternoon drinker.

I wasn't always an afternoon drinker. When I was shorter of tooth I would start out late to stay out late. Many nights I wouldn't bend my first elbow until well after the evening news. My friends and I wouldn't even kick off our night until most folks had tucked in. What we started many nights, we ended many mornings. We heard every 'Last Call' and each time we felt robbed. Where had the time gone? We're not done yet...

The last time we had a Democratic president, when I walked into an empty bar I would more likely than not turn around and walk out. I used to look for crowds. I used to seek out loud music. I would drink panther piss (read: Rolling Rock) so long as I could drink it high atop of steaming, teaming pile of youths. I was a youths. It was good.

Not anymore. Now when I go out to a pub, it's more likely with a concern that they won't be open yet, not about to call for last. Now when I walk into an empty bar, I think 'great, no waiting'. I still like music in a bar, but not too loud please. I like to be able to hear the conversation I'm having. While I used to walk into a joint intently scanning faces for friends, enemies or potential conquests, I now save nearly all of my attention for the line of taps. Any favorites on? Anything new I haven't tried? My dream hookup is no longer a pretty young thing - now it's an Pliny Elder thing.

Don't take my reminiscing for complaint. I like my afternoon drinking. It's nice to get it out of the way early, leaves the rest of the day for more adult pursuits - like doctors appointments and school plays.

OK two things:

1. Just realized you live in the capital region here in New York; I just moved to Albany a month ago. Good to see other beer lovers in the area.

2. Where did you get the Pliny the Elder? I have never had one, been looking for several years now (i have been moving a lot lately).

3. I am enjoying this chronical-ing of your year long beer journey, keep it up!
