Hit the Saucer last night to get to my 125th beer there. Samuel Smith Nut Brown Ale vs. Brooklyn Brown Ale vs. Saint Arnold Brown.
Sam Smith won. Saint Arnold came in at 2nd. And Brooklyn out-Englished Sam Smith and could never get warm enough to get any good flavor out of it. Something about Brooklyn and our friends at Boulevard that their regular 12 ounced bottled beer is pretty vanilla, and then they blow you out of the water with their bombers. I'm sure there's some marketing in there by not acting like Lagunitas whose beers kick you in the nuts everytime. Just procrastinating before doing a big stint offshore. Another 14 days without beer, starting tomorrow. Holla.
