Weekend Tastings & the Youtube Clip of the Week!

This week’s clip features my favorite U.S. Women’s Gymnastics Team member, Alicia Sacramone. Yes, I’ve logged some time with the Games this week…Anyway, here she is knocking a douchebag out.

Excellent.

So, Friday night it’s gonna be Oktoberfests and Pumpkin Ales:

-Brooklyn Oktoberfest

-Brooklyn Post Road Pumpkin Ale

-Southern Tier Pumpking

Also, we’ll be trying the excellent Abita Pecan Harvest Ale. Weihenstephaner Fest Bier and Hacker-Pschorr Oktoberfest just arrived, so they might get cracked open as well.

Saturday I’ll have Devin from Dogfish Head in. We’re in between special releases, so I might bring some goodies from home to taste. At this point the table’s looking like:

-60, 90 and120 Minute IPA (120 batch bottled July 7th)

-India Brown Ale

-Festina Peche

-Midas Touch

-Black & Blue

And whatever else I can scrounge up. It’ll be a good time as always. See you this weekend at Rick’s!

p.s. I’ve caught Olympic fever. One thing is seriously bothering me, though: The commercials for ‘Knight Rider—The Series’. Really? As opposed to, ‘Kight Rider—The Musical’? Actually, I might get into that. Only if Drunk Hasselhof plays the lead again, though.

Seriously, this looks like it’s going to suck. Hard.

Friday Tastings for August

Hey,

As I receive more and more Fall-themed beers (Octoberfests, Pumpkin Ales and Autumn Ales), I find I have no room on the Saturday tastings for them. So, every Friday night throughout August, I’ll be tasting the lastest arrivals from 5-8PM. This week:

Hofbrau Oktoberfest

Spaten Oktoberfest

Clipper City Balto Marzhon

Lancaster Octoberfest

Expecting Brooklyn Octoberfest and Post Road Pumpkin next week. We’ll see what else happens…

Local Kicks Column, Summer Beers, Shout Out and Saturday Tasting

So, in the interests of housekeeping…

-The Local Kicks Column is up here. This week it’s all about Summer Beers. I mentioned some very popular ones, but as this is my blog it’s all about me here. Sunday or Monday I’ll be putting up my personal list of favorites. Think about yours; I want to start a conversation here.

-Shout Out to fellow blogger and Beer Minion Kendle over at My Husband Cooks. Great resource for ideas, fantastic food porn and he even links to your humble Beermonger. Thanks again, dude.

-This Saturdays’ tasting at Rick’s will feature: Brooklyn Summer Ale, Flying Dog Kerberos Tripel, Brooklyn/Schneider Hopfenweisse and Green Flash Hop Head Red.

See you Saturday at Rick’s, or if you’re at Savor Friday night I’ll be out and about.

Cheers!
