It was basically a sausage gravy bowl with a bunch of stuff in it. A biscuit, potatoes, bacon, cheddar, two eggs, and a sausage link. It was very good. The sausage gravy was different, the sausage chunks were huge.

Started that "cooler weather" tradition I've done a bit of the last handful of years where I mix scotch, apple cider and add a bit of cinnamon. Nice sipping drink to watch TV or read or do whatever while drinking.

Hop Slammed. (Again )

I always thought that it was a seasonal release in January. It’s weird to get excited by 18 dollar a 6pack beer

Changed due to "dry January", a concept that I was not familiar with. Will be the fall release going forward.

Krogers. All Krogers and a giant Eagles in central ohio have gone to Saturday releases. Open at 9 put a sign out at 830 that lets you know what they have. 1 bottle limit of any allocated bottles. Stagg is my favorite so my wife got up and went at 4:30 to stand in line. She was 11th first 12 people got Stagg. I showed up at 7 and was 24th. I got Blantons. Then we each drove to two other Krogers and got another blantons and Henry mckennas.

Cheap box o wine. I gave up on the craft beer stuff. Too many new stuff and styles. I gave up after being a fan since 2005.

I’m kind of at this point. I use to love the IPAs and trying different ones. Some were good others weren’t. Now I just stick to what I like. Mostly witbiers and lagers. 

I’m going to stop at my bottle shop Friday and hopefully find a different Goose Island Bourbon Stout variation but I’m not confident. I have a 2019 bottle I’m bringing to Thanksgiving.

Honestly, I'm getting to be where you guys are, too. Still love a good hazy/NE IPA but I'm just getting burned out on it all.

I loved McKenna when it was a $25 bottle.

I have also slowed down on the IPA’s. 

“Too many new stuff and styles”. I agree, Curly J.

I won a lottery at Jungle Jim's for the opportunity to purchase Utopias. Bought it last night. I've never had it before out of all the beers I've tried.

I've had it twice.  Doing a tasting of the 2023 tomorrow.  Honestly, it's just OK.  It's not beer and a little goes a long way.  You only need a few ounces.  A bottle should last you a couple year, unless you share it.  The "bottle" is cool as hell though.

I don't think I've had it before, but at 28% I'm probably out at 2 ounces. I have enough trouble with a small pour of ~14% BA stouts.
