mo' insomnia

one of the beer 'n' wine dudes at work hooked me up with a mixed six the other night. (thanks, miles!) here's the verdict:

1) fuller's london porter -- just what it says. he musta known this'd be right up my alley when i told him i usually drink shiner or ugly pug.

2) rogue dead guy ale -- in the same ballpark, but somewhat less exalted. drank this warm inadvertently and it was probably better for it. cold guinness still seems wrong.

3) maudite -- well i'll be damned. a little sweet for my unsophisticated palate. now i want to go play "fan club."

4) tommyknocker maple nut brown ale -- a really interesting taste. sweet but not overpoweringly so.

5) victory golden monkey -- full-bodied and a little sweet.

6) ayinger celebrator doppelbock. i saved this for last because of the little plastic goat. now this is more like it. like drinking a loaf of pumpernickel, and i mean that in the best possible way.

Ken, you need to get into the Dogfish Head varieties...good stuff.

I think their Punkin Ale should be released soon.

nah -- four one night, two the next

i've noticed that when i booze at the bull & bush, i get more snockered than i do drinking domestic scumbeer on nights that i'm playing

not necessarily an advantage, i'm just sayin'
