Lemme check with the boss lady.
If I have one of each it will be a tough ride home.:eek1
Been dreaming of a cheese oozing, steaming hot, packed full of meat & veggie goodness calzone all night...that & the 20 something beers they have on tap
It's also wacky wednesday, 1/2 off specialty pizzas & an extended happy hour till 8pm
Tues ride with coarsegoldkid was great! Covered a lot of ground. My head was spinning.
Water was flowing, not sure its source
Crossing over into YNP
The off road way into YNP!
Ill be joining the next run hopefully
Nice pics! Thanks for sharing....and water.....where the hell did you guys find water. lol
Hi JP, It's been a while since I rode with any of you guys much less get together. I'd like to join you at BC's tonight.
Absolutely, come on outI've been counting down the minutes to good food & beer, I had oatmeal for breakfast & a salad for lunch & i'm dying to return to my carnivorous ways:dg
Thanks JP, I'm looking forward to some good eats and meeting some new folks of the dirty 2 wheeled variety.
Missed you Jeff. I've got a friend coming from north of San Fran next Monday and ride his DRZ on Tuesday and Wednesday. He's a noob so I need to take it easy on him. Mostly forest roads and I'm sure he would like to see YNP from the back door. Maybe Daryl will make it too. Join us.
Ill sure try, this house is just consuming me.
Too bad I had to drag my grub grabber along but he had a good time. He chatted the whole way home about how much fun he had ... I think he like snuggling with Justin.
LOL. Kids love me what can I say.......I'm almost kind of glad that we had to go over to West Coast Fish & Chips since BC's was packed....I would have drank too many beers if we had found a table over there. Glad you guys could make it out Let's do it again soon.
It's a great place, with free pizza if you get there early enough. But it has become a very popular hangout. Being retired, I have learned you have to get there before 5 on a weeknight if you are going to find a place to sit in the bar, and sometimes even the restaurant portion. Great beer selection and good grub, hard to beat combination. Did I ever tell you guys I am a certified beer judge? No kidding, I judge homebrew events up and down the valley, have been doing it over 20 years.
I love the place too, but there wasn't an empty seat in the place when I got there I am still craving their Ultimate Calzoni.......
I remember you saying that you did the homebrew thing, but didn't know about the judging. I have always wanted to try it, and so now I have a couple of questions for ya
In your opinion, are the $100 first time homebrewing kits that I see on the internet any good? Do you know of one that you would recommend?
For the first time home brewer, what are the most common mistakes the first timers make? Vital equipment, Brewing conditions (temperature, etc.), ingredients.....
And last but not least, why are so many people making IPA's....IMO they are all horrible
That's exactly why so many people make them. They can taste horrible and no one can complain, because if they do, well, they're just not sophisticated enough to appreciate a fine IPA. Probably fizzy yellow beer drinkers. Everyone knows the best beer tastes awful.
Justin, Ive got a full grain 10 gallon setup with kegs. Haven't brewed any this year but we could do a batch if your interested. Takes the better part of a 4 hours to do.
I also dont like IPA, tastes like grass IMO. Now a nice Porter or red and we are talkin!
LOL, It doesn't have to be that way My go to all around beer is Newcastle, next probably being Blue Moon, then throw in the occasional Guinness:slurp (has to be ice cold though). IPA's make me pucker & cringe, it's not a pleasurable experience for me.
Absolutely! I'm in. I would love to see the basic process & get an idea of what's involved. Thanks!
Pick your poison and ill get the ingredients.
The Irish red is really good here but Im open to anything.
