A lot of people have been complaining that I haven’t been writing enough scintillating reviews. By a lot of people, I mean no one, and by complaining, I mean remaining conspicuously silent on the topic. Truth be told, I have an excuse. I’m a new father. She’s the perfect way to allow me to write off any shortcoming on my part to the wonder and social necessity of raising a future president (of a future Justin Bieber cover band fan club). In fact, she’s so awesome at allowing me to escape social and business responsibility that my wife and I have taken to calling her our “excuse.“ “Our excuse’s two month birthday is today.” Or, “Sorry, I can’t attend your gam gam’s funeral, but our excuse has been a bit testy on Saturdays.” Or, “Boss, I’d love to stay late on Friday, but my excuse has to get some vaccinations.”
So, enough excuses, let’s get to the drinky drinky. This episode, I try Anchorage Brewing Company’s Love Buzz Saison. At $14.99, it’s pricy. As many of you know, every time I do one of these, I hint, not so subtly, that brewery’s should send me free beer to try and rave about, get drunk on, or both. Sadly, no takers … so far (there’s still time). But, Stan (Mr. Taste Terminal) did give me this beer to try- for FREE. Finally, the squeaky wheel gets the beer. Based on how delicious it is, I need to squeak more often.
