    I'm happy you find it to your liking, Greg. The PNW in general is rather over saturated with IPAs so I try to make a note of the good ones when I come across them. That one is easy drinking without being too boring.


    Coffee for me at the moment. Then I will be venturing out to meet a friend where I believe we will be enjoying some local wines. I think the new 77 will be accompanying me.

    Tonight, I opened a 1990 pinot noir gifted to Miss Norma and me in 1992 by some close neighbors. There was some cork residue in the bottle after opening, so I poured it through a paper coffee filter. It has a delightful cherry juice flavor, without much tannin (hence the brown tinges) and, despite the original ABV, not too hot at all. Very smooth, to my surprise. The BB Winchester 2904 Trapper was different story due to operator error: I tried to open the knife fully while holding the bottle = both blades sliced my middle finger and I took the picture with blood dripping on the sideboard and my phone. So artistic!!

    I remember Paulaner Salvator as one of the best beers I've ever had. (That was in Spain while visiting my daughter, so circumstances may have inflated perceived quality. :rolleyes:)

    So when I saw Paulaner Oktoberfest Wiesn in my local grocery store recently, I didn't hesitate to grab a 6-pack.

    It was OK, but certainly NOT one of the best Oktoberfest beers I've ever had. Rather pale yellow, compared to most Märzen-style beers I've tried. Almost no head when poured, and a kind of "bite" to its taste. And the beer bellies of the men on the label made me think twice! ;)

    Happy Friday, folks!

    I am kicking things off with some sort of French wine blend. I am not well versed in French wines so this bottle was a bit of a gamble for me. Since I live in Oregon (a bit of a wine country by itself), I don't find myself branching out too often, though I do get the occasional California wine now and then, especially since they tend to be cheaper than Oregon wines.

    Another thought came to mind when I was choosing a vessel, the McMenamins Edgefield Hotel (where the Winery is located as well) recently experienced a bit of a calamity. Some exuberant guest decided it would be prudent to yank on a water pipe and it busted, causing three floors of the building to be flooded and subsequently evacuated. As with all of McMenamins locations, it is a historic building and I can only hope that the damage is not too severe.

    Like the wine, vessel, and knife; dislike the vandalism.

    Can you wear white or drink vodka 'n tonic after Labor Day? I reckon that since we have a Labor Day each year, every day is, in fact, before the next Labor Day. Bottoms up!

    The pint was supped at The Commercial in the West Yorkshire village of Slaithwaite, from the Empire brewery across the road, had a hint of blueberry, and was refreshing after a walk along the local canal :) :thumbsup:

    Jack, that's a pretty posting of prodigious pint pouring. Impressive collection, and these two brought a smile to my face: "Californishire" and "from the Empire brewery across the road".

    Thanks for your concern for my digit. The hardwood floor and my finger cleaned up quickly; no wine was disturbed, merely savored.

    My son finished my Spaten German lager while I was out of town, but he bought me some Guinness:

    I thought I'd better grab a case of these before the season was past.
