So our friends have heard of our no money + no beer dilemma, and have come bearing supplies.  Apparently I won the last online round of “drink the beer” and the prize was another beer.  The nice part is that Schneider Weisse arrives in New York quickly, it’s rare to find a skunked one, and it’s like $4 so that’s nice too.  I’m sure in Germany this stuff is sold out of vending machines for nothing, but it’s still a great deal now that this part of Brooklyn has long been yuppie hipsterized.

Chillin with the Bastard from @StoneBrewingCo   …What is there to say about Arrogant Bastard that hasn’t already been said?  Although I do prefer Stone Brewing’s Smoked Porter overall, it’s never easy to find around here (though you’d think here in Brooklyn it would be easy), and so you often end up taking home some bastard…like this guy.  This is one of those “works in the winter” ales that are good when chilled, even when there is 5 feet of snow outside and cold as the ass-crack of a brass monkey.  Don’t have this beer with any kind of food where the way it looks is as important/more important as the way it tastes.  It will smack the plate out of your hand, kick it all over your shoes, and then punch someone related to you straight in the pancreas, just for the hell of it.  Actually, you don’t even have to pair this with food at all. It’s just that intense.   Also available in fun-size.

i swear niggas in kung fu movies be bathing in baby powder or something

They probably do. It really sells the hits.
That Jet Li move is just crazy though.

It’s added for effect and it goes by the name “pow-powder”  …you aren’t supposed to use that much though.

Naughty undies!  
Exposed: A History of Lingerie traces developments in intimate apparel from the 18th century to the present. There are two types of lingerie, hard and soft. Hard lingerie includes corsets, bustles, and structured bras, while soft lingerie consists of unstructured garments, such as slips, nightgowns, and panties. As the relationship between dress and the body has been redefined over time, so too have the function and appearance of lingerie.

Well, I guess it wasn’t physically impossible after-all.

The best time of year is right now, because this is when every single craft brewer in the world wants to make Pumpkin Beer.  

But before you go jumping in, you have to know that there are 2 basic kinds of Pumpkin Beer out there.

1) The good kind:  It is beer, that has been made like a beer should be made, with pumpkin and a few spices like nutmeg and/or clove in the mash and the flavor notes make their way into the wort, and so on.  This adds a unique dimension to already good beer.  Examples include Blue Point, Heartland Brewery, and the very best; Brooklyn Brewery’s Post Road.

2) The absolute shit kind:  Beer that has been made and then back-sweetened with pumpkin, sugar, brown sugar, more sugar, half a pound of cinnamon, and lemon peel because why the fuck not.  The result is a pumpkin pie soda with a 4.5% ABV and an identity crisis.  So if you want a beverage that tastes like someone mixed 7up and pumpkin pie filling together, this is it.  Examples of this horrific abomination include Dogfish Head and Shipyard.  I’m sure there are more, but I deliberately avoid that kind of thing.


Available from late September to the end of November, Pumpkin Ales are a seasonal fix just as hard core as Cadbury Cream eggs (although I can’t buy them anymore because Cadbury is evil).

If you’re in New York during this time, stop by a Heartland Brewery location.  Yes it’s a touristy chain kind of place, but they do make their own beer and their pumpkin ale is some top-notch stuff.


I have to walk through the Lowes parking lot to get to Pathmark.  Sometimes there’s something interesting in there.
