I don’t sleep well after a night of boozing which is fine because I like to get up fairly early on Saturdays and/or Sundays and hit the movies.  I’m a huge film buff and see several back-to-back-to-back every single weekend, starting early so I’m done with my double or triple feature in time to get […]

Bell’s Hell Hath No Fury Ale

November 21, 2008 by Aaron Goldfarb | 5 Comments | Filed in Brewer: Bell's, Country: America, Grade: A-/B+, Style: Belgian Strong Dark Ale

7.7% ABV bottled “Get up, Aaron! Get up!” I was being shaken awake courtesy of a whispered yell from a female voice I did not recognize. I could barely open my eyes, a wicked hangover permeating my skull. I squinted trying to read the alarm clock. 6:00 AM. I rose my head from the pillow. […]

100 proof bonded There was me, that is Aaron, and my two droogs, that is Batch and Wallace, and we sat in the suburban Philadelphia dive bar trying to make up our rassodocks what to do with the evening. The suburban dive bar sold OGD which is Old Grand-Dad 100-proof “bonded” bourbon whiskey, which is […]

Landshark Lager

November 19, 2008 by Aaron Goldfarb | 27 Comments | Filed in Brewer: Margaritaville, Country: America, Grade: F regular, Style: Macro!

4.7% ABV from a urinal “How’s that Landshark Lager?” “Terrible.” “T’is what I heard.  Get me a bottle.” “Wait.  You want a bottle of it?” “Yep.” “Why?” I have that conversation a lot with bartenders.  As much as I love great beers, I also have a perverse fascination with trying the worst of the worst.  […]

Pabst Blue Ribbon

November 18, 2008 by Aaron Goldfarb | 10 Comments | Filed in Brewer: Pabst, Country: America, Grade: B-, Style: Macro!

4.74% ABV canned Yesterday’s post reminded of an even more interesting tale of Super Bowls past. May I present… The Hooker Lottery In Super Bowl XXXVII the Tampa Bay Buccaneers scored early and often on Bill Callahan’s pathetic Raiders’ defense and the game was rendered quite boring quite quickly. Likewise boring were the commercials, finger […]

The Captain’s Oatmeal Coffee Stout (Homebrew)

November 12, 2008 by Aaron Goldfarb | 2 Comments | Filed in Brewer: The Captain's Chair, Country: America, Grade: B regular, Style: Stout

~5.5% ABV bottled I heard all sorts of negativity and skepticism from my friends. “You’re really going to do it?!” “Heh, you got bigger balls than me, pal.” “That’s disgusting! I can’t believe you.” “Seriously–DON’T. You’ll only regret it.” And what was this scorn and derision directed at? My goal to one day take down […]

Southern Tier Harvest Ale

November 11, 2008 by Aaron Goldfarb | No Comments | Filed in Brewer: Southern Tier, Country: America, Grade: B plus, Style: ESB

5.2% ABV on draught Drink Your Way to Happiness!!! I have a generally happy, positive disposition. I am rarely down, my demeanor is always at an even keel, celebrating the great pleasures in life, while ignoring the agony, most of which is pretty minor, truth be told. As my idol Marcus Aurelius said, something can […]

7.5% ABV from a bomber (BATCH 4) My Drunken Amateur Haircut Now I understand why smalltown hicks use crystal meth and are always impregnating each other. When you’re drunk and there’s nothing to do, bad shit happens. Friday was dreary and I wasn’t in the mood for going out. Decided to make it a chill […]

5.1% 500 mL bottle Procrastination is.  Procrastination is.  Procrastination is…Oh, fuck it. I wasted Saturday but what’s the big deal, that’s what Saturday’s for.  And is viewing movies all morning, watching college football all day, drinking all night, and canoodling into the wee hours really that big of “waste”?!  What purpose is life if not […]
