Well it is January and it is one of the happiest and saddest months for pro football. If you are football nuts like Jim and I you are happy because the playoffs are here, and if your team is in them so much the better, and if they didn’t make it, so what it is a great excuse to watch lots of football and drink lots of beer and whiskey. It is sad too, because the season is coming to a close. It’s kind of how you feel a couple days before ending a great vacation. Jim and I are lucky again this year as both our favorite teams are in the mix. Jim is one of those off beat, foot video lovin’ Jets fans, and I love me some Aaron Rogers and the Packers!
I have a great lineup of brews to pop open this weekend too, as well as some great whiskeys. I have a Ninkasi Oatis in the fridge right now just waiting for some love. I was thinking this would be the perfect accompaniment for the Packer’s game Sunday afternoon. If you recall when I reviewed this beer I didn’t love it. That was back when Ninkasi was going through growing pains. Since then I have had some great Ninkasi brews and I thought I would give it another try.
As for Whiskey, my most favorite brother on the whole planet (also my only brother) sent me a box with 4 Glencarin glasses in it for Christmas this year. It has been fun re-discovering some of my whiskeys and trying them with the perfect glass wear. I’ll post about this later, but I have some Bulleit and perhaps a Rebel yell or two that I will try with the new glass wear.
What about you? Have any plans for the weekend? Did your teams make it into the final month of NFL play? What will you be drinking this weekend? Let us know in the comments, and have a great one!
