Had my last night of golf league last night and of course it was my best round of the year. In fact my last two weeks were my best two rounds. 45,46. It's been a weird year for me and golf as I have had this "I don't care" attitude. Only went to the range twice and did not get out that much on weekends. SO, basically I SUCKED all year (or I should say sucked more then I typically suck).
Just one of those weird years I guess. I think it might be do to just needing to take a break after being in charge of a league for 10 years. I had to get away from the game for a year. I don't know, maybe, I don't know.
I hear the Kurth was packed last night. Shows the need to a good friendly pub that is open 7 days a week. Pub. I like that word. Sounds friendly doesn't it? Columbus has bars (also called dives) that cater to smokers and drinkers while I believe The Kurth is more like a meeting house with beer. People go there to talk and socialize and have a beer in hand.
That place would be amazing if they had craft brews. If it was open 7 days a week with craft beer on tap it would make a mint! The problem is room. What I would do is take that parking lot in back and make it into a beautiful biergarten. Then start a mug club. I think I would have a Beer-In-Your-Face club.
For $25 you would go into a room or outside and put a large garbage bag over you with your head peaking out. Then you would choose a person of your choice to throw a mug of beer in your face. By doing this you get your name on a plaque on the "wall of shame" saying you are part of the Beer-In-Your-Face club, you then receive a special mug, and a t-shirt and a discount on beer. Of course you do not have to have the "in your face" deal but then you get no plaque, just the mug and t-shirt and discount.
I gotta win the lottery.
Speaking of alcohol. I see Denver is the first city in the US to legalize pot for personal consumption if you are 21 of over. The argument is that current laws promote alcohol and it's health, safety and social problems that are associated with it.
They are promoting the use marijuana as opposed to alcohol. The campaign pointed to government reports that show alcohol is a contributing factor in domestic violence, sexual assaults, and many violent crimes, as well as overdose deaths, whereas the use of marijuana has never been linked to such violent behavior and there has never been a marijuana overdose death in history.
So Rod you say. I thought you were a beer guy. I am, but I consider craft beer more like wine, you don't drink it to get blasted right (although it can happen) Craft beer is not made for copious amounts of drinking.
In fact there is a trend in craft brews to make lighter alcohol beer.
In Europe most beer made is much lighter in alcohol (ABV - Alcohol By Volume). Guinness is pretty light in ABV as with many Imported beer. But here in America you have "Extreme Beer" being made by many of the Craft Brewerys with 5 to 10% ABV (as opposed to Miller and other swill with 4.1%.
When I had a meeting with the original brewmaster of the Grumpy Troll one of the last things she said was "make sure you make a lighter ABV brew, don't get caught up in making only extreme beer".
Well, my brewery never came to fruition which is probably a good thing. BUT, I still take donations for purchasing ingredients though.
OH - remember the Beer Summit? Obama was drinking a (shutter) Bud-La La Lite which is owned by a Belgian-Brazilian company, the other guy was drinking a Red Stripe owned by Diageo PLC of London and the other other guy a Blue Moon from SABMiller of London. Not one American beer in the bunch!
Of course the Woman's Christian Temperance Union said they should have been drinking lemonade or iced tea. That would not have been news worthy and that was what it was all about.
AND ONE MORE BEER comment.
Man this area of the world makes great beer. Capitol Brewery, Ale Asylum, New Glarus Brewery and the BEST, Tyranena Brewing in Lake Mills. Must be the water which is very hard and great for dark beer.
I'm done. Blank brain time.
I'm in a blog slump.
