Today wasn’t a particularly warm day but our crocus are out in full force, bock beers are starting to show up and I don’t want to wear tights to work anymore. Ahhh…the signs of spring in Marci-land. I also hit the gym for the first time in a very long time and realized just how out of shape I am. So we’re going to work on remedying that situation.
Sidebar: The highlight of today’s trip to the gym was a dude who looked like an athletic John Waters. I couldn’t stop starting at this guy. His lips were perfect replicas of Mr. Waters.
Sidebar II: I read an article in New York magazine, that John Waters has taken a Polaroid picture of everyone who has come to his home since 1992. The article was published in 2008 and since then Polaroid stopped production. I’ve always wanted to do something a little bonkers like that…guess I’ll have to find a new medium.
Blue Point Brewing Company’s Winter Ale out of Long Island. This is the first beer I’ve had from this brewery and I like it.
It poured an deep amber with a minimal head that left some lacing behind. It smells of caramel malts and sugar. It has a very round flavor with a couple of things hitting my palate. Caramel, toffee and sweetness with just a little bit of hop in the finish. As a winter warmer, it’s quite good. Substantial in flavor and moderate ABV (7%). I’m not sure why this one hung around so long. Cheers!
