News: Green Flash Price Jump Aug. 1st/Saturday Tasting/Manny to the Dodgers?

Currently drinking: Since I’m on the job, I’m enjoying a Dominion Root Beer. Not as mind-shatteringly good as the Abita, but it’ll do for the moment.

So, Just got word the other day that Green Flash prices are jumping as of August 1st. Currently, my stock of West Coast IPA is priced at $10.99/6pack and $42.99/case. My next shipment will go up to $11.99/6pack and $46.99/case. I have about 7 cases of West Coast in stock, so if you want to stock up do it now.

Also, the bombers are going up as well, but that shouldn’t be as severe. I’m expecting a jump of $.50 to a dollar per bottle. I’ve stocked up on everything.

The beer tasting for Saturday, August 2nd will include:

-Flying Dog Dogtoberfest

-Castelain St. Amand Biere de Garde

-Weyerbacher Imperial Pumpkin Ale

-Sam Smith’s The Famous Taddy Porter

The Taddy Porter makes me especially happy. Back when I was working in McLean I used to sell a ton of this stuff, and I often kept it in my fridge. One day, I went to place an order and was told that the distributor wasn’t carrying it anymore. So just having it available again makes my week.

I don’t have anything to add to the Manny trade except–really? Just put up with the guy. I’m not even a baseball fan and I know if you have a clutch Hall of Fame bat in your lineup just let him be an annoying pain in the ass and let him keep winning for you. I haven’t seen any signs of him breaking down, so I really don’t get it. Then again, football is right around the corner, F1 is in full swing and the next UFC card is never far away, so I should be fine until the WWE *cough* I mean NBA comes back.

Ok, enough wasting time at work. Late.

A Little Too Much Weekend

So I’m a little run-down today. It was a long weekend for me. Working both days in addition to keeping a full drinking schedule can wear you out. Friday night was at Bailey’s Pub & Grille in Ballston Common. They’ve put a very interesting line of taps on, including Bell’s Two-Hearted Ale, Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA and Stone Arrogant Bastard Ale. i myself very much enjoyed the ‘Large’ glasses of Bastard.

Saturday night I had a couple friends over for the UFC event. The fridge was a murderer’s row of beers with Bell’s HopSlam, Dogfish Head Burton Baton, Oskar Blues Dale’s Pale Ale, Ten Fidy and Gordon, Bear Republic Racer 5 and some of the new Clipper City ale (more on that when it arrives). Needless to say, Sunday was not a good day.

Beers of the weekend: Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA on tap, HopSlam and the Arrogant Bastard on tap.

This week’s column should be up tomorrow. I’ll link to it as soon as it’s up.

Cheers,
