Looking forward to a Saison Saturday

But as for now, Friday night wound up like this...

Started off at Seven Grand in downtown LA. Spencer brought a couple cigars, I enjoyed the Rocky Patel Decade, as usual, and we had some Old Fashioneds (Sazerac Rye is the best choice of whisky in an Old Fashioned if you didn't know that).

We moved back up into Sierra Madre for Lucky Baldwin's Strong Ale fest. Loren and I started off with a Hop Rod Rye, a beer I love but probably haven't had in 2 years. Loren also had a Pliny the Elder, the freshest Pliny the Elder I may have ever smelled, and that includes up at the brewpub in Santa Rosa. Can't wait to get back to Lucky B's on Sunday morning for the Manchester United game, 2 eggs and bangers, and a couple pints of fresh Elder. Nothing like some beer, english breakfast, and "soccer" at 8am on a Sunday.

Here's the beer list at Sierra Madre. The Strong Ale list is most likely better at Pasadena, it probably even includes Pliny the Younger. But we love Sierra Madre because our favorite bartender is there. I didn't know North Coast made Kasteel Brown and that Lagunitas is in Chico. (sarcasm)

Loren downing the Hebrew Jewbelation 12 taster that we had so we could get home and get to sleep.

Tomorrow I got a few saisons on the menu to sit around in the back yard and enjoy the sun with.
