Beer Notes

According to the bottle, this beer is a combination of three different Clown Shoes beers aged in rum barrels. Two are stouts and one is a barleywine. I’ve had one of the stouts and many other Clown Shoes beers.  They are hit or miss, except for their stouts which are always amazing.  This one is nearly perfect.  You can get a hint of barleywine and rum with a great stout. This is one of the top two or three beers of the challenge so far.

Other Thoughts

It’s Sunday and it’s the Super Bowl, so there isn’t a lot going on in American politics today, but there was one disturbing tweet from him today that seems worth mentioning:

This is not how our country works and it is very dangerous thinking.  In the unlikely scenario that a refugee that is let into the country during this time frame and “something happens”, it is not the fault of the judge.  It is the fault of the person who commits the act of terror. Or you can blame the New England Patriots.
