Brew Review – Rainbow Colored Glasses by Ology Brewing @OlogyBrewing

Growing up, Publix used to sell sherbet in clear plastic tubs. This was a long time ago, back when the ice cream came in standard issue bricks and the checkouts still gave out those green stamps. While I loved the old Publix sherbets, especially the now long discontinued mamey flavor, they also had an awesome rainbow sherbet.

Brew Review – Quaker Goats by Leaven Brewing @LeavenBrewing

First, congratulations to Jillian and KJ Lynch, owners at Leaven Brewing, for their new assistant brewer born only a few weeks ago. Trust me, it’s quite a ride.

Second, I find it funny to be doing that on a review of an oatmeal stout since I know exactly how much oatmeal played a role in the first few years of my own daughter’s life.

Brew Review – Fuzzy Huggers by Magnanimous Brewing

I miss shag carpeting.

Big overstuffed fluffy blankets, however? I’m totally game. I am not afraid to assert my love exceptionally soft blankets and everything they are.

Brew Review – Deep F*%#ing Value by Hourglass Brewing @hourglassbrew at @fattapbeerbar

I don’t know anything about investing. I could care less about hedge funds, I don’t play stocks, and every time I think of the movie Wall Street I want to punch a banker in the face.

I know even less about silly things like Dogecoin and the massive stock market situation that recently affected corporations like AMC Theatres and GameStop.
