Happy 1st birthday, https://masto.beer!! 🎂
Day 112 #beervid19
Somewhere along the way I skipped a day, maybe two. Anyway, this adjusts the count correctly since Day 0 of our local lockdown (March 17th). Sometimes I feel like The Prisoner Of Covid, tallying the days on the cell wall and tapping out messages on the bars to fellow prisoners who are never seen.
And it's done! Every Mastodon server on Masto.host is now running v3.1.5
It all looks good but any problems or questions please let me know 🐘
Day 107 #beervid19
Santa Cruz Mountain Brewing
Single hop pale ale
Sorry for the lack of beer posting - so many bummers in the past few weeks, topped off by having to cancel Yurtville Weekend 2020, our annual music festival, due to coronavirus. Hadn't left much energy for socializing.
Currently loafing in Lower Loop, a round flat spot with oaks instead of redwoods, mostly unimproved except a picnic table we dropped here years ago. Great evening sun here!
Day 102 #beervid19
Santa Cruz Mountain Brewing
Vanilla milkshake IPA
I am unenthused by this one. It's ok, but a bit too much like cream soda.
Fairly successful day, though. Mowed roads until the tractor overheated. Diagnosis: radiator screen clogged with great clippings. Knocked off to hang around the neighbor's fire at a social distance BBQ.
Also time for.... the very last of my homebrew from last year.
It’s so good.
Day 95 #beervid19
Worked all day on the deck lighting project. While I was showering, my sweetie snuck out and came home with BBQ ribs and mini-growler (1 liter) of this. Now loafing on the yurt deck, listening to birds, watching the evening sun on the trees, and doing this beer.
Despite my sweetie's reminder, I bought UNsalted in-the-shell peanuts (unsalted peanuts should be packaged with a big biohazard warning sticker, and kept in a locked case like they do with cigarettes, so you can consider this poor life choice you're making).
My sweetie patiently shelled them, and I'll attempt to make Filipino-style fried peanuts. Should be good with #beer.
What could go wrong? Aside from filling the yurt with pepper spray equivalent. Maybe I'll cook these outside.
Votes were split evenly on this so I gave my stepdad a lightning round choice between Scotland and Japan. He picked Scotland, so I have acquired The Glenlivet Caribbean Reserve.
Hi, I'm Leni aka @sunflowers. I like beer.
I live in Chicagoland so a lot of what I try is local to Chicago/the midwest.
The Mastodon instance for those who love beer. I hadn't seen any instances that were specific to beer, so I thought I'd create one. You can post reviews of beers you've tried, recommendations for others, discuss home brewing, share events, etc. Anyone is welcome, whether you're new to the world of beer or a long-time connoisseur.
