    Heavy on the propaganda.

    I should have had a couple more pints and snuck in something in a flask.

    This was the first time I had went to a 3D movie since the old days when the glasses you wore were the red/green lens kind. I'm impressed with the new 3D.

    It's snowing here in the Mid Atlantic....a lot. I think it's hitting about an inch/hour. To celebrate my hatred for all things snow and cold, I'm enjoying a St. Bernardus ABT 12.

    I'm not much of a beer drinker but I have been enjoying a six pak of Killian's Irish Red. Most of my beer drinking involves loud music and dancing girls

    I need to lay in some of the micro brews available here in central Missouri; there is a micro here in Columbia located in an old garage that has a stout called "Oil Change" and does have the appearance of old motor oil and tastes like a liquid 7 grain bread.

    I got some freebies today.
    We just got Rheingold to sell at our distributor and they gave us a few cans of it.
    As far as how it taste? Well I'll just say the price was right.

    Very good Joe, exactly. In fact, one 1700's brewing author advised to add elderberry juice to porter. The reason was that the tart fruity edge would emulate the taste of porter stored 6-12 months in wood. Old porters certainly had tart, even sourish edges, from wild yeasts resident in the oak tuns.

    Lambic is made with wild yeast and even if SA didn't actually ferment it wild I am sure they chose a pretty funky yeast. Cranberry and elderberry are very similar to all intents and purposes.

    In other words Joe, you have just created a classic.

    P.S. Here is the source, Mr. George Watkins himself, look at pp. 123-131. (Isinglass is simply to clarify beer, still used in real ale brewing).

    Feeling daggone good about myself after finishing a very quick 3 mile run on a rainy 40 degree afternoon. Usually, I just bag it on days like this, but it was actually kinda refreshing. I'm now rewarding myself with what I was thinking I was going to drink afterwards, while running....this Guiness FES. This beer continues to be such a treat. It has brightened and warmed, what is such a dank day here, Down South.
