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.
Is it unethical to use my pull at work to get special items ordered from the beer reps? Maybe.
Did I do it anyway? Yep.
A whole case of #Guinness Foreign Extra, just for me!
Happy 1st birthday, https://masto.beer!! 🎂

Pretty solid IPA. Good post yurt wurk beer.
Yurt wurk went pretty well. We poured the last post footing, and used the leftover concrete to make a base for a friend's 3d printer. Scope creep set in and we decided to add more lights to the steps, since we had them apart to run conduit to the steps anyway. Got the lights and that part of conduit done, but there's still a lot more conduit to go in this project before we're ready to pull wire.
Since we had no vetoes, I am inquiring now about whether or not we can seamlessly move over to it as we would need to switch hosts. I'll keep you updated!
I'm thinking about migrating us to Hometown. With that we would have local only posting available (more features here: https://github.com/hometown-fork/hometown/blob/hometown-dev/README.md).
I know there's only a handful of us active but I'm going to put up a poll anyway.
Should we switch to the Hometown fork?
On Tuesday I had Cranberry Shortcut (https://untappd.com/b/lo-rez-brewing-cranberry-shortcut/3032660) by Lo Rez Brewing in Pilsen. That was the first sour I've had in awhile that was REALLY sour. I loved it.
Last night I had Peach Stand Rambler (https://untappd.com/b/odell-brewing-co-peach-stand-rambler-blonde-ale/3744620) by Odell Brewing and it was slightly disappointing. I always like the sweetness of ramblers but this one was lacking. The peachiness was lacking as well.
We haven't had any issues (thankfully) but I've changed registration to approval instead of open because there have been a lot of instances with spammers galore registering.
All users can invite people though, so if you have a friend who is interested or you want to join, you can invite them directly.
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.
