I went in for the first procedure in getting an old tooth/crown removed to be replaced with a new one. There was a cavity under the old crown that had to be gotten to, so, good bye $900 crown. It was a two hour procedure with a bit of novocaine and other bondos to fill the drilled out tooth stump. When I got home, I went straight to the fridge and pulled out a new, untried bottle of Oakshire's IPA. The initial taste set me back as the worst flavor I'd ever encountered in a beer of any kind. It had a strong mint/plastic finish that was truly shocking. I choked down about half the 22 ouncer, and dumped the rest. I emailed Denny immediately asking if Oakshire used some odd spice or other ingredient in its IPA. I intended to call the brewery the next morning and tell them they had an infected batch being sold at the local Fred Meyer's. Good thing I didn't. After emailing Denny, I went and pulled a pint of homebrew from a keg and was shocked to find the exact same infection! Well...the light bulb went on immediately, and a lesson was learned about drinking beer immediately after having dental work done. Don't do it. Well, I guess I'll be buying another bottle of Oakshire's IPA which Denny insisted, is awesome! I'm sure it is, just not after dental work.
