J Street Beer Momentous Occasion
Tonight is a special night!
Our very own Pyzocha is celebrating a birthday! (I won’t tell you his age… we’re embarrassed)
To celebrate this occasion, we’ll be having A BIG BOTTLE BEER BLOG BLOWOUT!!! Tonight, at about 8pm, we’ll be ripping through a laundry list of big bottles, tasting, drinking, pounding, and hopefully coherently live-blogging the whole thing!
Join us here for this momentous occasion tonight at 8!
WE’VE STARTED CLICK BELOW TO READ ON!!!
Pyzocha – This is is…thanks to all that joined me in celebrating my birthday, amazing beer selection and it’s always a great time to hang out with mt friends. Good night.
Pyzocha – “You can’t have any beer until you finish your tequila”
Tonzi- “Alcohol fuels my power cells and I *bbbbuurrrppp* BEEP”
Dr. Boozenstein – Exit 6. HOOOOOOO BOY! Tits on a mule! This Wallonian style brew has a super sweet granny smith apple note. At only 7.5% abv, this bottle is fantastic to drink on a Sunday drive or during your morning commute. Make this beer a habit that you put above your work responsibilities and your loved ones, regret is something you will only feel in the instant before your death.
Mon Bon (second time blogger!) – An update of Red and White. This beer is very strong. It’s probably the best beer I’ve had this evening. And sometimes I don’t like Dogfish Head beers cause they are always so fucking delicious that you just want them to make a shitty one sometimes… But I can’t not like it cause it’s really really good. Not shitty at all.
Mon Bon (first time blogger, also) – Lagunitas Crispy Summer Ale is very yummy — refreshing and easy to drink. It’d be a great beer to drink a lot of cause it’s pretty light. It tastes a little less alcoholic than 5.9% so it’d be easy to get drunk with. Also, girls who don’t like beer would probably like this one. I recommend it.
Boardwalk (aka “Special Guest”) – So I’m new to this beer bloging thing, so stick with me here. I just tried the Fere Jaques, which I loved. No bitter after taste (which I’m a HUGE fan of) and it has a sweet smell to it. So there you go. My first J Street post. Ugh, this night would be going so much better for me if I didn’t have to work in a few hours…
Pyzocha – We opend the last four bottles. I’m starting with the Dogfish Red & White. Slight red wine aroma light semi malty flavor, but blah blah blah I have no idea what I’m talking about at this point so the point of it is that this is a solid beer that gets some wine flavor to mix things up.
Rumor has it that our “Special Guest” might be making an appearance (sp?) soon.
Also on another note I realize it is no longer actually my birthday, but the celebration continues!!!
Pyzocha – We lost a player, it hurts when he left some less than empty dead soldiers. But more importantly he needs to feel better. 4 more big bottles to go. Then maybe it could be Miller Lite time woooooooooooooooooooooo
Dr. Boozenstein D.D.S. – Sweet sassy molassy, apples to apples is getting nonsense. Casual Feathers! Donny V’s got a train to catch. 4 more beers and it’s getting weird in the Pyzocha mansion.
Pyzocha- mmmm Brooklyn local 1….yeah yeah the doctor already reviewed it, but this is one of my favorite beers so I had to chime in about how good it is….oh shit apples to apples time.
Donny V- Jolly Pumpkin’s Bam Noire. Funky citrus hop flavors. Medium body, got a little bite to it.
Dr. Boozenstein – Brooklyn Local 1. ALL I WANNA DO IS A ZOOM ZOOM ZOOM AND A BOOM BOOM! Brooklyn represent!
Tonzi- Pretty Things Sylvan Stout. Coffee coffee coffee coffee coffee coffee coffee. Sorry, we’re watching Futurama at the same time.
Tonzi- And the first spillage just happened. Pyzocha has a hole in his bottom lip apparently. It’s all downhill from here.
Tonzi- Dear Kettle Chips, your salt and pepper krinkle chips are fantastic. I could’ve eaten more. However, getting through half the bag in a matter of seconds has made me slightly uncomfortable. Keep making your tasty chips. Thank you.
Dr. Boozenstein- Abita Andygator a Helles Double Bock. Extremely light for a double. Taste like mileton and pear napolean. Real clean and crisp with light fruit. Drink this beer on the treadmill or between sets on your soloflex home gym.
Pyzocha – Detour Double IPA has a wonderful hop aroma that smells very fresh and has a great followthrough with the flavor that isn’t overly bitter or sweet. Just a very solid double IPA.
Don Von Matterhorn – Troeg Mad Elf. Ruby Red brew with Honey and Cherries. 11% abv., but it is masked enitrely by the fruit flavors and spicy kick. Almost not lacing or head. Rather bland finish. I want more cake.
Yummy pistacio cake enjoyed by all
Dr. Boozenstein – Pouring The Dogfather looked like tree sap coming out of a notch in the trunk. Strong aroma of roasted nuts. It drinks like rope, leather, and Burt Reynolds mustache. MANLY! CAPS LOCK!
Pyzocha – We’ve got three beers open, the myster Lost Abbey, the Manatee Mad IPA and the The Dogfather. I went with the Manatee: it’s not very hoppy, a bit sweet, solid, but nothing that stands out.
Tonzi- First up is the Lost Abbey without a label. It’s pale yellow and funky. A lot of spiciness and tangy flavor. CALLING ALL BEER DRINKERS: what Lost Abbey is it?
Tonzi- Dr. Boozenstein is here and he brought in a few more:
Flying Fish Exit 6, Abita Andygator, and Jolly Pumpkin Bam Noire.
Let the drinking begin!!!
Tonzi- And here’s the lineup for the night:
Lagunitas #10, Bold City Mad Manatee, Pretty Things Sylvan Stout, Crooked Line Detour Double IPA, Troegs Mad Elf, Brooklyn Local 1, Laughing Dog The Dogfather, Dogfish Head Red & White, Goose Island Pere Jacques, and a Lost Abbey that has no label (oh the suspense!)
There should be a few more showing up once the remainder of the crew shows up. I can’t wait!
Pyzocha – I’m sticking with the hoppy goodness with a Heavy Seas Loose Cannon. Perfectly light sweet hops. Definitely one of my favorite IPAs.
Tonzi- MMM, hoppy goodness. The Hopslam is a very well-designed beer. Overly hoppy, but with a nice maltiness that keeps it from being unbearable. There’s a lot of hype around this guy, and we were lucky enough to get some. Delicious. Soon the big bottles will be out and the craziness will begin!
Tonzi- So, we’re a little late getting started. Are you surprised? We aren’t very good with time.
So far, Pyzocha, Don Von Matterhorn, myself, and a special guest Boardwalk, are here and are preparing the tasty beverages. It actually looks like we’re going to start with a Hopslam. Woo hoo!
