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!!!!

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....

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!!

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....
