    I actually found some decent semi-local beers recently. Lupine HellHound Lager, Bald Man Honey Kolsch, Carver County Kolsch. All of them are super drinkable and perfect for warmer weather. Plus I finally found a place around here that consistently stocks Wasatch's apricot hefe, which has been one of my favorite beers for a while. :yesway:
    Hopefully Uinta and sierra bring back their Gose beers for the summer.

    I got a hookup, paid 140 a case, which is super low. On shelf they go for 25 a 4 pack, 8 for a single. There is also usually a pretty stern limit. I spend a LOT with my craft guy, so I was lucky enough, and he was generous enough, to sell me both cases for under 300 total.

    ^ Brewing all done. Now I just need to keep it in a warm place for 2 weeks and then 1 week in the fridge. 10 liters of beer doesn't look like much when you present it this way (I made a 23l batch 50:50 with a friend).

    Went on a boat cruise with my wife again and she got so drunk, I almost had to carry her :lol: Someone might wonder why I go on cruises so often - it's because it's basically like going to a hotel but a lot cheaper and you get to buy tax free alcohol. Anyway, Poets of the Fall were playing on the boat, and to my surprise they play 7-strings (and 5-string bass). One guitarist played a UV and the other had the exact same Royal Blue RG1527 I have. Don't know if they're famous anywhere else but at least they're pretty big here. They sounded pretty good live too, even though it's not quite my cup of tea.

    Trying some Grand Cru Rodenbach. I'm still salty that Sierra didn't bring back their Cactus Gose. That was a super tasty summer beer.

    Had a Jack and Ginger Ale for Father's day because while I don't drink anymore, fuck it, it's Father's day.

    Bought a bottle of Jim Beam for Midsummer. Couldn't wait and made myself a drink with some coke. :lol:

    Midsummer... We had some friends over and went in the sauna once the kids had gone to sleep. Then after the sauna, at about 2 am, the women went to sleep. I was also pretty much ready to go to sleep, but then we figured it's midsummer once a year so let's keep going. So we listened to some humppa until 5 in the morning and drank a whole 1l bottle of Jameson :lol: It wasn't exactly the smartest option, so to speak...

    Midsummer...

    Went surprisingly smoothly, even though I drank for 3 days straight. At least for once I remembered to drink shit ton of water so that helped. Just gotta make sure I bring my own beer next year. I don't know what the hell my dad was thinking but dark lager doesn't exactly scream summer beer to me...

    Maybe he got it cheap somewhere :lol: I mainly drank my self made grapefruit IPA and that was pretty damned perfect. We went a little bit overkill with the beer - I had 2x24 normal beers + the 10L of the IPA I made, then there was some communication problem and my friends also brought 2x24 and a bag of mixed half liter cans, so we had something like 50 liters of beer for basically two people to drink :lol:

    Went to see Unearth last night. Got so drunk that I took my shirt off and did some hardcore kid dancing in the pit. Also, I lost my debit card and it takes at least a week until I get a new one (not the first time this has happened...)

    Typical one day trip to Tallinnn (Estonia). My dad wishes I would be dead, I wish I would be dead and my mom is acting like everything is on control. See you on the (Tallinn) market square in December. :coffee:

    Buy Imbibe by David Wondrich. I never realized how many drinks I have the stuff to make until I started reading it.
