I despise tipping, and love the European tipping scheme.

It's all fun and games until you get crappy service. I remember a bar in Gent where we were barely waited on. Today I would have probably left after 10 min with zero service and after the 20 min without receiving our drinks.

In this case there are no servers. My initial thought it no tip, or a paltry one, kinda like when you get takeout and give a buck or two to be sure your food isn't contaminated by saliva. I was in one of those type beer bars and they did not accept tips, but any "tip" on a CC was given to a particular charity.

Way too many higher ABV beers. Of course you can spy some PBR and Fat Tire in there as well as a smidge of Gatorade. Quite a bit of Bigfoot, Samichlaus, all the GOT beers, etc. I can see some New Glarus as well as a Dogfish Head WWS. What you don't see is my Fantome beers, they are in a separate fridge. ;)

One of our best local bottle shops allows you to break a six pack. Of course the cost per bottle is more, but you can variety to your heart's content.

1870 Original Batch is a nice glass.

The Anova Nano keeps popping into my feed. Might have to pick one up after release when it goes on sale for veggies or small meals.

Finished off the bottle of Old Forester 1920 Prohibition Style last night. I just never truly enjoyed this one. At 115 proof it was too hot for neat and even a cube didn't quite tame the beast. At $60 there are better Bourbons for less.

Not sure we have discussed 1897 BIB from Old Forester. I did not enjoy it nearly as much as the 1870 Original Batch.

No, my closest milestone is tonight we are going to an Anniversary party for a brewery. They are celebrating their 22 year and IIRC the first party we attended was year 5. That would make tonight year 18 for attending.

I almost forgot about it. We were thinking of a trip somewhere over the July 4 holiday so I put it out of my mind. My wife asked me last week if we were going and of course we are!!! What is interesting is most people do not know, nor attend, this party. It celebrates the first place and date the beer was served.

Ran Drew's chicken at 151F for an hour for four boneless skinless breasts in two packages. We'll see how the results are once my wife takes one to work tomorrow.
