What more do I have to tell you? ITS DAM GOOD.

Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale is a unique sipping beer with the distinctive nose of a well-crafted bourbon. Our Kentucky Ale® is aged for up to six weeks in freshly decanted bourbon barrels from some of Kentucky’s finest distilleries. Subtle yet familiar flavors of vanilla and oak are imparted to this special ale as it rests in the charred barrels. Pleasantly smooth and robust, Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale may also be served as an aperitif or after-dinner drink. Launched in 2006, it has grown to become the flagship beer of the premier name in barrel-aged beers: Alltech Lexington Brewing and Distilling Company.

For those of you who know me. Know I hate heights. Seriously the  guy who works on high-rises for a living doesn’t like heights.  Yes, that IS what you call irony.  The only way that I can fly is with a drink or two or six.  After many years of searching for the perfect combo to fly tispy and stress free. The combo was shown to me like by a angel of the sky. ( They were out of Vodka) Once I tried it . I never looked back.  2 Shots of jack with a can of coke and a bud light.  That’s the secret . The combo works because well you’ll get a good buzz and you WILL not have to go to the bathroom every 5 minutes.

Samichlaus Bier (Santa Claus Beer)

Samichlaus was once the strongest lager beer  in the world, at 14% alcohol by volume. The name means Santa Claus in Swiss German. It was originally brewed by the Hürlimann Brewery in Zürich, Switzerland. Hürlimann’s founder Albert Hürlimann was a world leader in the scientific study of yeast, and the brewery has a long history of yeast development. The Samichlaus Christmas beer was first brewed in 1979 for sale in 1980. Production continued annually until 1997, when the brewery closed. In 2000, it returned, this time produced by Schloss Eggenberg in collaboration with the original Hürlimann brewers, using the original Hürlimann Samichlaus recipe. The beer is only brewed once a year, on December 6 (which is the day of Saint Nicholas), which makes it a relatively rare brew. It is in the style of a Bavarian Doppelbock, and undergoes unusually long fermentation by traditional cold lagering over a ten month period, leaving very little residual sugar in the final beer.

Antisocial wine Drinking with Santa Alicia Malbec Reserve

Santa Alicia Malbec Reserve is  a well-rounded, yet with quite a powerful attack of blended red and black fruit medley dominated by black currants, blackberry sorbet and red fruit cobbler, along with warm, slightly phenolic notes of ripe cherries and sun-kissed plums. The midpalate shows good balance. There also are nicely ripe tannins coming through to the finish, which is a combination of cranberry and black currant juices, showing references of oak barrels, a touch of smoke and earth-driven minerality. Cheap and fast a good to go wine for any fall night.
