Beer Emergency

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO yard work day. Neighbors stopped by last night drank all my beer. Yes we all social distanced ourselves.. Yard work requires cold beer.

Lesson 101. Never start yard work without ensuring proper provisions.

Gas, check.
Oil, check.
Bags for garden waste, check. (or matches, if permitted in your area...)
Beer... uh oh...

Com'on man, these are basic Man Rules.

You also violated Bro Rules. "Always keep a stash of beer, for the next day." (Don't forget the exceptions... Actual brother, hiding a body, etc etc... )

Turn in your Man Card... you have so disappointed us... SIGH.

These are desperate times, I think card forfeiture is too extreme. I suggest posting pics of restocked refrigeration device to verify compliance and mock selections.

I'm very disappointed in your lack of preparation. Apparently you were never a Boy Scout since you failed miserably regarding "being prepared".

Ok, the vote seems to be... you got provisions... these are troubled times... so hang in there... don't let it happen again. And check that fridge often.

As soon as I read the thread title I knew it was you.
Somehow, Beer Emergency equates Hondo Gravel.

You still don't have any beer.
And why don't you keep an emergency stash?

yah societe is one of (arguably the best brewery) the best breweries in san diego county. they finally got their can game together about 4 months ago.
they had plenty of single-hop offshoots of "the bachelor"...all worth pursuing. pizza port (best known for their "swami's ipa") has been absolutely kiiling it
in the last year with their limited releases and collabs.

pint-sized pilsners (3), a japanese lager and a collaboration ipa (in the middle) for your san diego county breweries consideration. actually, for my consideration. now that itís finally warming up in socal, those pilsners + lager are super-refreshing.

I moved from a town in west Texas where the only two breweries around were a half-hour away*, to Portland OR where you can't walk around the block without passing two brewpubs and five restaurants with 72 taps. Sadly, 68 of those are IPAs, three are ciders, and one might possibly be an amber.

I don't own a yard, but I too am out of beer.

* https://www.tripadvisor.com/Restaura...ola_Texas.html

Tripadvisor says:
#1 of 1 restaurants in Eola.
#1 of 1 breweries in Eola.
Truth: If you go to the Eola Schoolhouse restaurant brewery and lodge,
- You'll order a beer. He won't ask you which beer, because there's only one and you had better like it.
- On the chalkboard are prices for burgers, pizza, hot dogs, and fries. He might have fries; for everything else he'll either say he's sold out, or be honest and say he's tired of cooking for the day.
- You can sleep about anywhere, inside or out. And people do. It's an old schoolhouse and there are lots of rooms and a big lot.
- You'll walk out and ask yourself, what the hell was that?

I will send you a case of Lonestar Beer to bring back the memories of the great time you had out in old West Texas. All the wind the dust and the rattlesnakes.

Looking at the first photo, I almost cried out loud "That bottom shelf is being WASTED! There could have been fifty bottles of beer stored down there!" Then I saw the second photo with all the blue cans and decided it's basically a wash. :

I wanna drink with Ooga.
