A Treatise to Day Drinking!

Yesterday was a proficient day in the Drinks of the Moment world. The morning started with incredible bacon & eggs combined with my Alsatian Gewurztraminer love & an interesting one from Anderson Valley. I say interesting for the fact that it actually drank like a Riesling! No joke, it tasted like petrol & didn't have the slightest hint of roses or honeycomb. The best part was the ubiquitous Southern California sunshine & overall perfection of the morning.

After this the adventure led to Bev Mo to seek the remains of Dogfish Head Punkin Ale. Sadly, no luck! Alas, the journey followed to my favorite location for outdoor drinking at my favorite patio. From there over to SD Brew Co. for their lovely Octoberfest beer & a Stone 10.10.10 which was an absolute revelation when enjoyed on tap.

Defeated in the initial pursuit of Dogfish goodness I ventured back to my trusty friends above & pulled one of my remaining 4 packs, and enjoyed the heck out of one. Oh, and a 1978 Pichon-Baron to close the evening still a lot of life, and abundant character that kicked minimal sediment with ample flavor & aromatic complexity....

I like me some retirement!
