Above: The Fence Post sample and  the Brown Ale at right.


I’m at Auburn with my brother. I’m sipping on a good Alabama brew.. Good People Brown Ale. I decided to use my iPhone to do by posting today.

I also saw Back Forty Fence Post Session Ale on tap. The bartender here at the Halftime sports bar brought me a sample. I would have done well with either.

The Brown Ale is toasty but isn’t as heavy as many brown ales. Light and hint of smoothness at the start but jumps to a light bitter finish that lingers forever.

The Fence Post reminds me of a Belgium trippel. But to be honest a 2 oz pour is let enough. Has a hint of a pecan flavor but then again that might be lingering flavors from the Brown Ale. What the heck, our lunch has arrived. I think I’ll have a full glass of the Fence Post.

So, what’s the “praying” about in this headline. We got no tickets to the game and need to find 2. Otherwise I will be free this afternoon to try some of the other 30 or so taps they have here.

I wanted to try the Fence Post because most of the brewers there are Auburn grads.

The Fence Post ale is a nice straw color

One prayer answered. We have tickets


This tailgating party can reuse this name in 2 weeks.

 Everybody in the stadium is texting or emailing or checking scores. I got a signal but can’t post any updates. Guess I’ll have to wait. This is a great game. 


All my prayers were answered.

Charlie and I celebrate the 43-38 victory over the Bulldogs
