But just to close the loop on this whole thing, the brown ales (Harpoon Brown Session Ale & Brooklyn Brewery's Brown Ale) went very well with our Thanksgiving meal. So well in fact that I enjoyed another Harpoon with my leftovers this afternoon, after my nearly thousand calorie workout at the gym. Even with that, I don't think I broke even with my battle of the bulge. I think I'll go for another run this evening, I gotta back back down to my "fighting weight" fast...
Wii + Beer + food = Good times
Thanks to Erik for bring the Wii over to the house last night in a successful attempt at adding a little post food-orgy fun and exercise. Speaking of Wii and beer... Last night I kept thinking, they should come out with a beer pong game for the Wii, and lo and behold, they have! How cool is this? "Ping Cup" (AKA Beer Pong) is part of "Game Party" which will be available on Nov 27th, but you can pre-order a copy today over at Amazon, beer not included
Things to look forward to over the next few days
I've got a lot of things I need to blog about this week and next week and they are as followed:
- Write and publish reviews for the Flying Dog Brews waiting in my fridge behind the leftovers
- Publish a quick post about the Custom Brew Crafters brewery tour I shared with my Dad and brother in up state NY last week.
- Write and publish a review for the growler full of "Wee Heavy" I picked up at Custom Brew Crafters
- Bottle my holiday ale and post an update
