Day 227

Oskar Blues
Dale's Pale Ale

A long time favorite!

Today was supposed to be a day off, but not quite. Got a couple of hours of deck werk done though. Added another couple rows of blocking, did some tidy up, then positioned the first deck board. Then it got too dark to work, so... Beer o'clock!

I took a growler home with me for a pumpkin carving party so I had 32oz/.9L off pumpkin spice latte porter birthday cake for dinner.

Day 221

Brouwerij Bosteels
Tripel Karmeliet
Belgian ale

My friend brought two of these this week. Because one kick in the butt ain't enough.

We didn't make as much progress as expected today, but it was ok after two bottles of this.

Enjoying a delicious with my blackened Mahi-Mahi wrap and nacho chips! Happy Friday! πŸ₯³ 🌯🍻

Day 220

Santa Cruz Mountain Brewing
Boardwalk Blonde
Hoppy blonde ale, 7.5%

Nice cross between the sweetness of blonde ale and the hoppiness of pale ale. Kind of strong for an all night beer, though.

Deck werk for the wurk yurt is progressing. Almost approaching the final shape.

Just wanted to give a shout-out to @mightybigcar for saving! I was going to have to shut it down due to my finances and he came in and saved the day!

Day 204

Firestone Walker
Nitro Merlin

A smooth favorite.

The heat wave is finally moderating - it's a mere 20Β°C at 9pm. Still a few degrees warmer than expected this time of year.

Day 202

New Bohemia Brewing
Light My Fire
Smoked Helles

When you've poured 5800 pounds of concrete two sacks at a time, it sure as hell ain't Miller time.

This is a nice crisp Helles with a pleasant smoke taste. Ice cold, too, which is great since it hot 36Β°C again today. That's about 10Β° to 15Β° warmer than normal for this time of year.

not beer 

I’ve just made the gnarliest cocktail in my whole life

It’s a gin’n’tine but I have neither a citrus juicer nor a sharp knife nor even a jigger

Still delightful

Legs Smoove and beer dranked
Also this CBD Bath salt business is relaxing af
I gotta buy another bag soon

Enjoyed a delicious Amber Bock at Fuddruckers today! πŸΊπŸ”πŸ‘πŸ»

I submitted a pre-order for beer advent calendar again. returns December 1st!

I usually try and leave the alcohol for the weekend, but today was a rough one, so it calls for a cold one. 😩🍺😊

Day 199

Coronado Brewing
Salty Crew

Another fine hot weather choice. Still around 25Β°C here. And fucking smokey. The weather, I mean, not the beer.

Day 201

New Bohemia
Big Basin
West Coast IPA

Nice piney resiny taste. A CZU fire beer.

A hot smokey day, pudding 35Β°C. Not exactly great conditions for construction work, but we still got 11 of 16 remaining piers poured before running out of steam. Now drinking beers and listening to Chris Smither live stream.

Selfie, ec 🍺 

Celebrating the weekend with a tall cool one! 🍺

Day 189

Trophy Brewing
Blinded by Science
Hazy IPA

Instead of a beer picture, you get to see the first truly blue sky we've had around here in over five weeks. You can still smell smoke, but hell, for over a month we've been smoked like a slab of bacon, so everything around here smells like smoke.

Well now... That's pretty good. I'd basically given up on pumpkin ales but the habanero twist really gives it a kick.

Dinner, not-beer 🍝🍷 

A quick spaghetti dinner with whole grain spaghetti, ground turkey, and tomato sauce with a bit of Malbec to wash it down. πŸπŸ·πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ˜‹
