How about you?

Tonight...just coffee and water... Nothing too exciting I'm afraid ;-)
I am trying Arrogant Bastard Ale for the first time tonight while I smoke up some meat loaf on the Traeger. An interesting beer, more hoppy than I was expecting from a strong ale.
Having a glass of Wild Turkey Rare Breed this evening.
How is it? I love the 101. Haven't tried the 81 yet just out of spite.
Pepsi, but considering a Rogue Dead Guy Ale, or Newcastle Brown Ale.
It is fantastic. It is barrel proof (roughly 109) not the 80 proof. I have been drinking Templeton's Rye recently, but felt like a change.
I don't blame you on the 80 proof stuff. I normally drink the WT 101 Rye, but the state run PA liquor stores around me phased it out in favor of the 80 proof crap. If I want the 101 lightened up, I'll drop an ice cube in it.
I could very much go for some Newkie Brown.
I haven't tried Templeton. I have been making a lot of Whiskey Sours with Bulliet Rye lately though.
That's a bummer about the state stores. I can't figure out why they do stuff like that. What the problem with having both and letting folks choose the one they want?
Bulleit is pretty good. Templetons is pricey, but I found it on sale a few weeks ago and had to grab a bottle. It is delicious. I drank it neat mostly. Every so often I would put a few drops of water in it.
Jim Beam Black and soda, but the glass is almost empty and it's nearly time to go to bed.
Today it is Lagunitas Lucky 13 ale while smoking some salmon. It's just not right smoking meat (or fish) without a good artisan drink in hand. This stuff is a bit stronger than I was thinking, definitely not a session beer.
Water for me
Seltzer, from my Soda Stream machine.
We've got a Soda Stream too, I love it.

Tonight? What goes with charcoal-grilled tri-tip?
A lightly-spicey Alexander Valley Zinfandel!
Sorry for the late post....Last night it was Early Times and Arizona RX Ice Tea...Believe it or not that makes a really nice " high ball"....
