Coronavirus Tragedy = aka skunked beer

If the destruction of the economy and the rise of tiny dictators, like King Newsom, are not bad enough, we are now faced with an even worse tragedy. We are talking, of course, of millions of gallons of beer giving their lives in vain. Never causing bladders to be distended, relationships to be started or […]

Woodinville Whiskey – The Pre-Social Isolation Review

Oh, those heady days of 3 weeks ago when I could wander through Trader Joe’s with nary a thought of people getting within 6 feet of me. I was indeed wandering through Trader Joe’s when I noticed, as I hurried through the liquor section, that they now carried Woodinville Whiskey. I had been mentioning Woodinville […]

Tatoosh Bourbon – The Review

And….we’re back.  We recently were able to acquire a bottle of Tatoosh Bourbon, as pictured to the left.  This bourbon is from the Tatoosh Distillery in Seattle, although all the making and bottling is done at the Bendis Distillery in Bend, Oregon (a distillery that makes a couple of lovely gins).  I am unclear as […]

Happy New Year!

The end of the Mayan World as We Know IT! Two bourbons to drink before the Mayan Apocolypse (We like to call it Mayacolypse)

The world is ending tomorrow.  We all know it.  However, we are not sure what time.  I had heard 3:30 p.m. but no one said if that was Eastern Time, Central, GMT or what.  So, if it is Pacific time, you luck devils on the East Coast have pretty much the whole day on Friday […]

"The harsh, useful things of the world, from pulling teeth to digging potatoes, are best done by men who are as starkly sober as so many convicts in the death-house, but the lovely and useless things, the charming and exhilarating things, are best done by men with, as the phrase is, a few sheets in the wind." ~H.L.

Jerome
