Five Good Things About Big Flats Beer

10 Feb
BIGflats

This is dedicated to S&P, friends not agents of seasoning.  They told me about Big Flats and have paid for all (both) of the Big Flats I have consumed to date.  Here is a review of our experience.

1.) It’s made from the choicest hops.
 
2.) At $2.99/6 pack, it’s a bargain.  To put that in perspective, you can buy TWO cans of Big Flats at Walgreens or ONE small fry at McDonalds for the same price.
 
3.) It comes in cans!  As previously discussed, this can be a very, very good thing.
 
4.) According to the can, “the water makes it” – I would not want to drink any beer NOT made with water.  This is one of my non-negotiable standards for beer.
 
5.) Since it is only available at Walgreens, it is easy to buy as part of a multi-purpose errand.  Pick up some Big Flats with your antibiotics, milk, paperclips, and the pictures from Nana’s 80th Birthday Celebration.

Five Good Things About Beer Class

19 Jan

I went to a free beer class at the local market tonight; it was fantastic.  Here are some specifics as to how I reached that judgment:

1.) There was a wide variety of beers: blend, Belgian, IPA, Black IPA, almost-sour.

2.) In addition to beer, there was also cheese – delicious, delicious cheese.  It was free too – and it wasn’t cheap cheese.  One was $30/lb cheese.  If you want to buy $30/lb cheese, man, do I have a recommendation for you…

3.) The cost of beer class?  Zero dollars, no pesos, nyet ruble.  Free.

4.) Two of my friends attended with me.  I like my friends.  (Well, mostly.)

5.) I tried some beers that I would not normally try, one of which I will likely buy.  Yum, so good.

Five Good Things About Hops

11 Jan

hops: a key ingredient in beer

 

1.) Hops possess some antibacterial qualities.

2.) Hops make beer worth drinking.

3.) Hops also have some folk/herbal medicinal uses, commonly being employed to relieve sleeplessness, anxiety, and restlessness…sort of like beer?

4.) Hop farming is labor intensive.  Labor intensive = jobs!

5.) Apparently, they make a lovely fill for pillows.  I love sleep, so this seems pretty great.
