A pint at The Voltaggio Brother's Book Release Party

Ok... So being that the staff pouring the beer at Harry Grove Stadium has sooo much knowledge about the beers they are pouring, there was not a whole heck of a lot of info of what exactly I was drinking tonight. I do know the first was yuengling, followed quickly by a Sam Adams Octoberfest, not a bad pint, but I found it a little weak in body and finish. Obviously it was better than bud, bud light, etc.... but not up to my standards.
So when I went to the next beer "tent" they had Brewers Alley Taps, but I had an IPA that did not taste typical Brewers IPA...I think it was Flying Dog, full body with a strong finish. Not there is anything wrong with Brewers IPA - I love it and drink a fair amount at Isabellas and Brewers Alley, I just like the Flying Dog IPA better. As I have said before - atmosphere has a lot to do with it, great night at The Voltaggio Brother's Book Release Party....There was a lot of great music, and food and kickball.... For those of you there great party - for those of you that missed it - great party!!!!

Nothing like H20

One of the downsides with having a nasty case of the flu and bronchitis is not being able to drink of amything other than ice water... Not the best for happy hour, but a pint of ice water filled with ice is awesome!! It is one of my favorite thing to drink, and something that 90% of people don't get anywhere near enough of - many people recomend 8 x 8oz glasses (64oz) per day but the actual amount is much higher, i suggest you drink half your body weight in ounces - I weight 223 so I should drink 111.5 ounces of water per day... i probably drink about 80-90 ounces a day, i know I need more, but what are you going to do....

Pink Pomegranate Mojito

So we went to Joe's Crab Shack last night for dinner and in typical pint glass fashion I had to find a drink that comes in 16oz - almost had a pint of Landshark when I saw the drink menu - my favorite drink.... Mojitos - I ordered the Pink Pomegranate Mojito - a good drink - subtle, sweet with a touch of mint... I think part of the reason that I love Mojitos so much is it reminds me of sitting on Ocean Dr in South Beach people watching in the early hours of the night/morning drinking mojitos.... Nothing like it!! So for Joe's - they made it well, just enough of all the right ingredients to make a nice drink!!

Sierra Nevada Pale Ale

Today at friends house I had one of the old standbys and a timetested good beer - Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. It is smooth, refreshing, not too strong but definately not weak and goes down great while playing a round of golf. I figured this would be a good one to start with on this blog - i like it and if you do too great and if you don't - tough. You will find that I am going to write about whatever i want, however it will all be beverages that I had in a pint glass....
