Southern Tier Caramel Pumking Imperial Pumpkin Ale I used to enjoy a good pumpkin brew on Saturdays during the Auburn football season especially after a victory. Well Bryan Harsin screwed that up the last two years so that I started to equate pumpkin brews with the taste of defeat. We are two games in and won both so we are 1/3 the way toward bowl eligibility. (Harsin won his first two each year. Hope I’m not setting myself up but you take the little victories when you can). I found the Southern Tier Caramel Pumking Imperial Pumpkin Ale 4-pack at Toast a few weeks ago ($13.99). It was around 100 degrees so I decided to wait until it cooled off a bit. I had plenty of time to wait considering the Best By Date on the bottle says 07/13/25. Might buy another pack and stash it away to try the…

I swore I would never buy a large beer pack with the intent of actually reviewing the brews ever, ever again. I bought one of the Mannerhandtasche XXL (The Man Bag in German) at Lidl back in the summer and took it forever before I was in the mood to taste 13 beers in reasonable amount of time (I still need to publish that review).

Instead of 13 it’s now 24 and I have no clue as to what’s in there. But I suspect it might be some of the same beers I had…

2nd City Single Barrel Bourbon | Augusta, GA This is not a celebratory drink. This is not really a review. This is a remembrance. Today is my anniversary leaving the COVID Ward at University Hospital. I was one of the lucky ones. My next door neighborhood, Dr. Robert Turner, a wonderful man, died while I was there. I remember lying in my hospital bed crying when I heard he had passed because I knew he had died alone. I was lucky in that I was there only long enough to get my breathing stabilized. Six days. It was the 3 weeks after I got home that was living hell for me and my family. The steroids they treated me with made me a bit nuts. I was so lucky to have a family who loved me and helped me pull through it. I really don’t want to rehash the hell…
