Are the Silver Linings Enough?

I recently had an interesting experience. Five months ago when I started losing weight it wasn’t because I wanted to look good for the opposite sex (don’t get me wrong it’s a perk). I quit my job and started losing weight because I want to be a police officer, everyone who knows me has always … Continue reading

Moving, what a pain in the arse.

Hello all! I am getting ready to embark on a new life adventure. My highly anticipated move BACK to Indiana is now one week away. I’ve “moved” back and forth from Florida to Indiana for four years because of college. I thought I knew what I was getting myself into…I was wrong! Moving across the … Continue reading

Well this is awkward…

So that distributing job that I was so keen on about (holy cow) 6 months ago. Yea, I don’t do that anymore…cue awkward silence, maybe throw some crickets in there. I have been neglecting this blog because after I quit my job I threw myself into fitness and thus had to stay away from beer … Continue reading

Shout Out to the Milk Stout

The location is Fat Cats, it’s a local beer bar…a gem in my opinion considering that Fort Lauderdale is behind the curve … Continue reading

I know that when you have are having mucus issues you really aren’t supposed to drink large quantities because it only makes it worse. I have also … Continue reading

First Punkin of the Seasonal Patch

     The circumstances under which I am trying today’s beer are perfection. I am tailgating outside of a Florence and the Machine concert in my best hipster gear with some great people. With October less than a week away I couldn’t stand putting off tasting a pumpkin beer any longer! As you may have … Continue reading

Stop Over in Louisville

This week I am once again traveling via painful road trip…you would think practice makes perfect, right? But alas it does not. While I do not have one specific beer for you, I am in the Louisville, Kentucky area for a blink of an eye and found this great little gem of a brewery downtown. … Continue reading

Not the Exception to my Raspberry Rule

The question on my mind as I am browsing the surprisingly extensive beer selection from our little vacation town is: should I give raspberry another shot? Let me explain, raspberry and I have a long history…a long unhappy history. Any raspberry beer I try, I truly do not like. I know what you are thinking, … Continue reading
