Beer Notes

This beer is quite tart.  There is some citrus flavor in there as well, and it’s very easy drinking.  The label says there is blood orange and spices but outside of the slight citrus flavor, I’m not really tasting any of that.  This is a good beer, the best I’ve had from Jolly Pumpkin so far.  Also, I do need to comment on the name.  Curcurbitophobia is the fear of pumpkins/gourds.  Great beer name for this brewery!

Other Thoughts

The focus this weekend is on the Trumpcare bill.  HHS Secretary Tom Price said that nobody would be worse of financially under Trumpcare.  Now, this contradicts all available evidence.  Early estimates have said that this bill will cause millions to become uninsured. It also appears that low income households and the elderly will see skyrocketing premiums.  The CBO (Congressional Budget Office) is expected to release their review of the bill tomorrow, at which time we should have a better idea of exactly how bad this bill will be for the country.
