You guys know I'm a Bud guy, right?
In the fridge all the time, but it's good to taste around too.
So, they have these grocery stores up here called Trigs, and the thing that's SO cool about Trig's (compared to say, Jewel) is that THEY HAVE A REALLY REALLY AWESOME BEER SELECTION!
I bought this beer, "Knotstock" by the Furthermore brewery, by accident.
Actually, I bought it because of the cool graphics on the six-pack, and never noticed the "beer brewed with black pepper" on the label til after I tasted one.
Kinda shocking when you first taste it just expecting beer taste.
But I SWEAR this is such an amazing, refreshing, different beer experience I had to do a painting.
Apparently you can only get it in Wisconsin, so if you're ever up here you have to give it a try.
Luckily, I couldn't get the Cubs game on the radio because I read this morning that they got swept.
Casey Coleman must have done okay with 6 strikeouts, 3 walks, and 3 runs (remember, the Brewers are just ridiculously hot right now so those are pretty darn good numbers).
And I see Aramis Ramirez cooled off for the day, not surprising against Zach Grienke.
Losing just 2-3, at least it was a game, eh?
And last night we met some friends at this restaurant called "Renee's Back Bay Cove".
They have amazing little places to eat around here out in the middle of nowhere, and I had a NY strip that was Ditka's-worthy, only about $40 less.
I don't even know who the Cubs play next, but I am looking forward to September Callups.
Think they'll bring up Brett Jackson?
