    I usually drink some Leinie Oktoberfests during the first 2 weeks of August while away on vacation, but this year they weren't available while we were there. But I picked up a 12-pack a couple of weeks ago in my usual grocery store. I was there again today, and noticed they had a display of many brands of Octoberfest. I think I'll sample quite a variety over the next month and a half.

    Thanks, Vince! I appreciate the comment.

    In the interest of full disclosure, despite it's looks, I'm quite sure you'd change your mind if you took a sip. :) But.... I did bring home an IPA that is a bit different and that a non-IPA fan might actually enjoy. I'll show it here eventually.

    Great photo. I bet the beer was tasty, and that li'l lambsfoot looks so good. :thumbsup:

    Oh! Bitters are a great idea there. I'd do that automatically with a mule, but I hadn't thought of using them without the lime in a ginger and bourbon. Mental note made.

    Nice little mini trapper. The coloring of the handles goes so well with the rest of the photo. :thumbsup:

    I know Stuart already answered, but I'll throw in my two cents as well. I have a silicone ice tray that has big cubes. Depending on the drink, I'll use one or two cubes in a tumbler.

    Pure Americana right there. :thumbsup:

    That's a tasty one. But, man, what an apt name. That stuff is strong.

    Gorgeous beer scout (or, radio knife?)! looks like it's one with a clip blade? So lovely.

    Great photo! I don't think I've tried their whisky, but I have tried their Dan Dan Ale, which, IIRC, is their Dead Guy Ale aged in Dead Guy Whiskey barrels. It was great!

    I hope I haven't steered you wrong... Still making up my mind on this one.

    Thank you, Greg. I do enjoy their Dead Guy Ale. It doesn't fit in well with the IPA craze right now but it makes for a nice change of pace. I'll have to look out for the Dan Dan, I don't think I've had it.


    A bit of Shiraz for me this evening.

    I fear I may have put you on a wild goose chase, Dylan. I bought a bottle from the brewpub maybe 8 years ago. Perhaps it was a limited release. The name Dan Dan referred to the first names of the head brewer and head distiller. Unfortunately, I can't find any reference to it now.

    On a happy note, I share your appreciation for Shiraz. That's quite a goblet.

    May I please ask of the knife? I'm thrown off by the scout shield...

    The Sierra Nevada Oktoberfest is really good! I bought a six pack. Will be indulging soon!

    Thanks, Greg. Yes, you can mix various bitters into that combination with some fun.

    That is a much more reasonable sized ice cube maker. though the larger one (2" x 2", I think) does have its unique uses.

    Taylor, I saw that one at the store this week, and will definitely pick up a 12-pack in the next week or two. This week I passed on it in favor of a couple of German imports. ;)

    Are you sure it wasn't Dead 'N' Dead? Or maybe it was a variant/limited release of this, as you said.

    I got the knife from Sarah (pertinux) awhile back. This is the info I know about it. Not sure that it is particularly rare but I always felt it was one of my better snags.

    Positive. I ran across a press release for Dead 'N' Dead while I was searching for information on the one I tried. Looks like DnD was released in 2017. The one I tried was maybe five years before that.

    I am doubting the name, though. It looks like my story about Dan being the first name of the head brewer and head distiller doesn't check out. Oh well. :oops:

    Sounds like Dead 'N' Dead is the same idea, though. :thumbsup:

    Thanks for the info. :thumbsup:

    Another souvenir from Bend, Oregon:

    Crux Fermentation Project is on the Bend Ale Trail, but I did not make it to their brewery. I still wanted to try something from them, so I brought this one home.

    @Prester John, if there is ever going to be an IPA that you’ll enjoy, this one may be it. Definitely not your stereotypical hop bomb. I quite like it. Here’s what they say about it:

    Y’all are probably getting tired of seeing that lambsfoot, but it was in my pocket when I bought the can and again when I opened the can, so I thought it might as well get a spot in the photo. ;) I’ll change it up soon. :)

    I'll keep an eye out for it, Greg. Bought some Spaten Premium Lager from Germany tonight. (Bought beer and whiskey--it's payday!) Will try to remember to take pics when I have beer tomorrow--probably during the Notre Dame game. Go Irish!

    Mary Chapin Carpenter probably gets the painted bottles, if she still drinks Rollin' Rocks.

    Inspired by @Duckdog, made with what I had on hand.

    I like to imagine that the original owner of this Camillus Engineer Knife enjoyed Bourbon. But, I bet they took it neat. For the record, I like Buffalo Trace neat, too. :thumbsup:
