what a complex beer. I am usually not a pastry beer person, but this was given to me. So many complex layers on this beer. Starts tart like a Berliner, the the berries hit and it finishes with cheesecake, marshmallow. Complex beer. Could not drink more than a couple, but man it is good.

My Fresh Squeezed clone I bumped up wit a bit more DME and corn sugar, it’s ~9% and tasty, reminiscent of Drakes Denoginizer. Potent for sure. Just finished a 59 mile bike ride and invited my mates to sample it👍 From all. Now I’m buzzed in the mid afternoon.

I had to drive to a specialist in Denver today for a comprehensive hearing and tinnitus test. Determined that I have moderate to severe hearing loss and severe tinnitus. I basically knew that going in, but it kind of sets in harder when a doctor tells you. The tinnitus might be managed with special programming in new hearing aids, but the hearing loss can’t be helped much apparently. I now have a special pair of demo hearing aids to see if I feel any improvement in the next week. Holy $h1t are they expensive!!!

I've had tinnitus for years, learn to ignore it. I have hearing loss too. that's what wives are for "what'd they say". I tried hearing aids, couldn't be bothered with them. Give me another beer.

Part of Pianoman's symptoms prior to the weight loss program in fall was a ringing in my right ear in summer. It was awful and keeping me up at night. Had an appointment made for the following week but I stopped drinking for a few days prior to the appointment. The ringing went away and the doctor didn't find anything wrong. That was one of the many symptoms that made me change my life in August.

Don't know if this is the same thing but thought I'd share. Hope it gets resolved. Can't imagine living that way.

I know how you all feel. I lost my hearing almost 15 years ago do to a virus. I have no hearing in my right ear and moderate in my left with tinnitus. But with hearing aid advancement the last couple of years thing are really good. Like I was told when I lost my hearing never apologize for not being able to hear it’s not your fault. People just need to speak up and not mumble. my hearing loss has never held me back

Thanks. Unfortunately, there are many things that make it worse, but I haven’t found anything that makes it better yet. I didn’t touch a drop of alcohol for 10-11 days when I had Covid and I don’t recall any improvement.

I’ve been dealing with it for 30 years and I have learned to ignore it for the most part. The main decision for me to seek help was the scientific studies that show a significant increased risk of Alzheimer’s and dementia with untreated hearing loss. Since I have a family history of Alzheimer’s, I figured I better get it checked out. My tinnitus is very severe but I have learned to accept it. Some people aren’t able to and it can severely impact their daily lives and even lead to suicide for some.
