Lately have been making Manhattans. Also drinking beers from Genesee Brewery and Saranac (F.X.Matt Brewing), as well as local brewpubs (shout out to Twin Elder, Victor, NY). Best
beer label is Wasatch Brewing's Polygamy Porter "why just have one?" .

I'll have to try that Woodinville Rye. They're only a few miles away from me(& no reason to pass on a local Whiskey.

There's another local Whiskey, JP Trodden. Very good stuff.

I like my Georgetown Brewers Bodhizafa ipa, and they now have a limited run with another poke at Point Break. It's pretty good, but Bodhi is my choice at the moment.

I'm still a simple guy Jim Beam or Bushmills and Hauf Weizen in the winter and Hauf Pils in the summer. This NYE though I did pick up some beer from "home" a six of Founders Porter which like most Founders beer is good but I'll wait until next NYE or a get together to buy more.

NewYears Eve, bought 6 in Tain la Hermitage, back in 1990, for about $20.00 apiece. The wine shop still used a roller, tissue and carbon paper Amex ‘reader’. Lovely wine,

Still with French tax stamp on capsule.

great vintage. epic producer. fantastic wine. how was it? assuming it has acquired a more burgundian hue and corresponding aspects here and there
(altho that producer is def old-school so it could still be chunky/meaty and rambunctious with just a hint of the prettier side).

aaahhh...those pre-euro $$ daze...

I'm liking the local NJ brews: Somerdale's Flying Fish Abbey Dubbel, *Pennsauken's Double Nickel Belgian and Mt Holly's Spellbound Belgian Tripel Cherry.

And I am happy to have been turned on to Old Forester (the first bottled bourbon, in 1870). The standard 86 proof is very reasonably priced.

Happy New Year.


*Pennsauken is the indigenous people's word for "industrial park" (per comedian Brian McKim).

yes the wine was excellent, 30+ years of age, no Brett, sourness, or prune, just nicely aged Syrah fruit. When coach still had 2 checked bags per person, brought back a lot of wine at good prices! Would take boxes holding 24 bottles each, thank goodness for the trolleys at CDG airport. One year leaving baggage the French customs officers pulled us over, wanting to know what was in the boxes. Fortunately for me, the wife is fluent in French, and said there was nothing, so they picked one up, and not weighing anything asked what for. The wife said the hub was going to fill them wine to take home. They gave us a Gallic shrug and waved us thru.

some great west coast ipa's in this thread...

https://www.bikeforums.net/foo/1242531-beer-thread.html

not sure what part of the country you live in but if you can get your hands on bottles of any ipa from alpine, pizza port or societe (all from san
diego county), you'll be in a good place. there is also la cumbre "elevated" ipa from la cumbre brewing co in albuquerque, nm which is awesome.
fave west coast ipa from san diego currently (esp on tap) is pizza port swami's but overall fave is dragoon ipa from dragoon brewing in tucson, az.

I like to make my Coffee Porter recipe in the autumn. It comprises 90% 2 row pale malt with 5% 40L crystal malt and coffee roasted barley. It festers for a couple of weeks with a handful of Centennial hops after fermentation is completed. This batch is about 6.75% ABV to warm the cockles on chilly Texas evening (less than 80F is winter here).

While I tend to drink more wine than beer these days, a big Porter fan. Too many hobbies to attempt getting into brewing - but I have a long time friend (also a cyclist, but he's Gone Carbon now) who is a competitive home brewer with a lot of awards to his credit. A while back he dropped off a keg of his Chocolate Vanilla Porter (free beer! ) and while I prefer his Vanilla Bourbon Porter, it's still pretty good. His stuff beats most of what I could buy. Sorry for the messy photo:

tiger1964 Nice! I've been brewing for almost thirty years and usually have something laying around ready to drink. But on the rare occasion when I buy "retail beer" I'm always disappointed in the head and body. Commercial producers have no control over their beer once it leaves the brewery so they have to homogenize and filter it. Since there is no active yeast in the finished beer it has to be carbonated like soda pop. It's pretty underwhelming for $12 a six pack. We have quite a few brew pubs and bottlers right here in Austin and I know several professional brewers. They all brew small batches on the side to develop new recipes and that stuff is downright amazing if you can pry it out of their tightly grasped fingers, haha. Regards...
