Whoever said that moving back in with your parents sucks never ate like this!

My mom and I put together a little meal tonight, and I got my dad to drag out a couple of his shootin' irons, since I have nothing approaching this level of awesome.

Behold, two of the finest handguns you can buy.



Two Premier Grade Freedom Arms .454 Casulls, complete with requisite reloads of Hornady XTP Magnum bullets on top of 35 grains of H110 powder. The one on the left is magna-ported.

Dinner:
Filet Mignon, cooked Medium Rare - ended up being just about rare.
Florida Lobster tail, grilled.
Asparagus in hollandaise sauce.
Twice Baked potato.
Sierra Nevada Pale Ale
Requisite napkin, knife and fork.

while SN-IPA is a good representation of it's style (i'm a nationally certified beer judge, so i know whereof i speak) that's a pretty caustic brew for such an awesome meal.

gotcha, year old guinness is about 11 months too old.

which begs the question - what the hell you doing with beer that old??????

should'a been drunk ages ago, that's verging on alcohol abuse right there, y'know.

9/10 because them ain't V-Maxes, those are Hornady XTP Magnums. Reason I know is because I have some ready to be loaded into a .45 Long Colt.

My mom bought it for a recipe when I was visiting a while back, and never drank it. She picked up some SN and I drank it. I'm a poor college student, so I'll drink whatever they buy. I'd say SN isn't bad for being free.

correctamundo, SN is awesome when it's free! hell, i'll drink bud and enjoy it when it's free, even if it gives me a headach because of the byproducts from the yeast they use.

the American Homebrewers Association is how i became a judge. they do it in conjunction with the American Beer & Wine Association.

hardest damn test i've ever taken. essay questions comparing and contrasting beer styles that are a gnat's ass apart from each other, questions on arcane aspects of brewing technology and yeast biology; tasting tests of intentionally messed up beers, out of category beers, unbalanced beers, you name it.

it can be really fun judging beers, i used to judge our state fair and numerous smaller contests every year, but after a while it got to be more of a pain in the ass than it was worth. haven't judged in several years now, and at least for now don't miss it. being a good judge at a contest is actually a shitload of work; full concentration all day long, for every good beer there's 2-3 that pretty much suck, and at the end of the day you end up with a headach and a case of beer burn-out.

and we all know beer burn-out is no fun at all.

Was the BJCP test as hard as they say it is?

wise choice, my friend.

even though it was really fun at times, i kinda doubt i'll ever get back into it myself. there's just too much cool shit in this world to spend time on, and i'm just not that into the beer scene at the expense of other things.

still love drinking the stuff though.

if i had to pick one beer that i could drink exclusively for the rest of my life, it would be spaten munchen helles. bavarian beer at it's finest, so clean and uncolored it's pretty much the definition of beer in my book.

my all time favorite beer, but not one you could drink every day or all night long, is rodenbach grand cru, an unbelievably nuanced belgian beer. nothing quite like it.

my everyday beers; negra modelo and miller high life / high life light.

negra is actually a great interpretation of a vienna, and mexico has some fantastic breweries that were started by expat germans after the world wars. other great mexican beers are bohemia (an excellent pilsner), and pacifico for a summer slammer. corona is shit...

my buddy and i are both beer judges, and in our estimation miller high life is the best cheap domestic beer by a long shot. given that we're both middle aged and trying not to be fat, we also seached out the best light beer. high life light gets the nod, stay away from miller lite like the plague, it's amazing how those extra 10 calories totally make / break the beer.

prost!

I think just about everything I drank in Munich, or Germany, for that matter, was spectacular.

Negra Modelo is a pretty good one, but its could use just a wee bit more flavor for my taste. High Life.. now thats a surprise. I agree that its a pretty good domestic, but it fills me up so much. I've never had the lite.
