Right now I'm sampling a bottle of Mississippi Mud (Black & Tan) that friends gave me.


What on earth do they make this stuff out of??

Can't say I've ever tasted anything like it. This is must be one of those aquired taste kind of deals....

But the thing is, if she's so cool that someone named a beer after her, she must be cool. Thus, people will be compelled to learn about her. Do you think anyone knew who the hell Pliny the Elder was before he had a beer named after him? Hell no! It's a cool name. I like it.

Back on topic....I'm drinking a New Belgium 1554. Not too shabby. I'm about to have a glass of Johnnie Walker Black, though. It's been a long week.

Johnny Walker Black?? Man, I wish I was hanging out with you right now. I'm drinking some Oatmeal Java "The Juice" stout and I had another St. Peters Cream Stout. Man that is some good stout. They say they use challenger and fuggles, but I want to see if I can find some kind of clone recipe that tells more about the grain bill. It's just good stout.

St.Peters...Hmm...I saw that the other day and almost got one--but I was already over my allowance so I said--next time. Hopefully they still have some.

well, i split my Ruination IPA w/ a friend while he nrewed today, and i must say i was underwhelmed by it. good, but no better than the Hopzilla at Two Rows. the Racer 5 IPA was better IMHO.

then had some more Red Bird Ale and now a Sanit Arnold's Winter Stout.

Funny, I thought I knew all about Thor and Odin and Loki, but I don't remember Sif being mentioned in any of his comics.

Thor checks in here on a regular basis (he apparently moved from Norway to North Texas), so maybe he'll give us some more info on his family tree.

Must've missed those comics. Not a big comic book fan, really.

Sif was Thor's wife, with golden hair down to her knees (some sources say longer). Loki cut it off, and Thor was outraged (they don't mention whether Sif was mad or not, oddly enough). Thor demanded that Loki replace her hair, so Loki got someone to spin real gold into new hair for her. I thought it fitting since I also have knee-length golden hair (though the 'goddess' part is hard act to follow!).

On-topic: tonight I'll be enjoying some more Belhaven.
