Well the weekend is upon us, and I’m sure a few of the greenish-blue little puppies you see above will find a new home in my belly over the next couple of days.
You see, our buddy Rich Blair, the “ambassador” guy from New Holland
Brewing Artisan Spirits sent me a very big bottle of their Beer Barrel Bourbon, the stuff they age in old Dragons Milk barrels.
I love it very much – too much probably. It’s one of the best adult beverages I’ve ever had the pleasure of consuming, and I find it very hard to resist. And now I have a lot of it. Uh oh.
Even if I take it easy, which is “the plan,” my body doesn’t like Bourbon. Just a little bit of the stuff will make me a headachey, sweaty, spacy mess the next day. I think this’ll be a lost weekend, indeed.
But whining about getting a big bottle of free hooch is like complaining about having too many women chasing you, or the fact that you’re wallet is so fat it’s giving you back problems.
I’m thrilled that people send us stuff to test out, especially when it’s something this good. Instead of complaining, I should instead remember Mel Brooks’ words of wisdom from History of the World Part I:
What are you drinking this weekend? As always, let us know below, and have a great one!!
