Beer Notes

The first time I tried this beer was their 2.0 version back in 2014.  I don’t remember much about it then but I knew I liked it then and I love it now!  This one has a nutty flavor up front which fades into the bourbon/chocolate flavor which is well balanced.  Great beer and even better collaboration.  The excellent Wil Wheaton (yes, the beer is brewed with wheat) worked with Stone on this beer (Also Drew Curtis from fark.com but I admit I don’t know anything about him/them).  Comic book artist Amanda Conner designed the bottle and it’s great.

Other Thoughts

House Republicans are working overtime to try and push through the steaming pile of shit that is Trumpcare.  Now, to be fair, Trump asked that his name not be put on the bill.  He has no problem putting his name on literally anything else but doesn’t want it on this health care bill.  Trump said that if this new health care bill fails, he will make sure that the current Obamacare law fails, and that he will blame Democrats.  As president, he does have some powers that could cause Obamacare to fail, so this is a frightening threat.  And, it feels like maybe I was building to a point here, but I think that’s all for now.

Also, Jeff Sessions admitted to meeting with the Russian ambassador twice, but apparently there were three meetings, so that’s something maybe. And Hawaii is the first state to sue Trump over the new Muslim ban, before it has even begun.  Massachusetts, New York, and Washington have joined as well.
