Beer Notes

I’ve had a few beers from Audacity and I haven’t been impressed.  This one may have the most potential of any of their beers.  After all, the bottle says that this is the very best a brewery has to offer.  But it’s still not great.  There is a decent tasting Belgian beer in there but then they poured a bunch of sugar into it.  It’s way too sweet.  I would not recommend this beer.  Still better than the Baltika stout on day 1, but not by much.

Other Thoughts

It gets a bit tiring to worry about everything that is happening in Trumpland every day.  I do worry that everything that is happening is having a real impact on the mental health of a large portion of the population.  There were things I was going to talk about today, like Trump’s inexplicable (the article title is a joke but the content is accurate) speech about Black History Month.  But that just makes me more upset.  So for one day, here is some positive news:

  • In Texas, a Jewish synagogue is helping out Muslim worshipers after their mosque was burned down.
  • Ikea is giving jobs to Syrian refugees.
  • Joe and Jill Biden have launched a charitable foundation, the Biden Foundation.
