    Not quite Fall here yet and I'm ok with that because, short of all the dayum rain, it's near perfect temps for riding :D

    How do you like that smokeless fore pit? ALMOST bought one to use out on the dock in the fall.

    I have an addiction to chocolate malt balls. Love them. Probably why I decided to try this beer. It’s pretty good. Nice malt ball flavor.

    After several BBnB cancellations, the boys are back together, after receiving negative CV19 test results.
    We're spending the week on the NC coast working on Mom's beach house, sampling new brews, listening to tunes and playing cards.

    What follows are pics of what we tried throughout the long day yesterday was;

    This was quite nice.

    IMG_8469.jpg
    My favorite of the day.

    IMG_8471.jpg
    Another very nice one.

    IMG_8473.jpg

    IMG_8477.jpg
    least favorite of the day.

    IMG_8478.jpg

    IMG_8482.jpg
    a definite hint of honey.

    IMG_8484.jpg

    somewhere along that list, beers were from today's flights.

    Here's a photo of the partial weeks offering. The cooler in the back is full of new offerings and another brother is yet to arrive from TX with a few more.
    We know we won't drink it all. We'll trade beers and take some home.

    IMG_2294.JPG Nothing as Fancy as Dos :D Wiring boxes and panels in the shed.

    This is probably one of my favorite seasonal stouts.

    "That beer is Xocoveza Mocha Stout 2020, a 8.1 percent ABV milk stout brewed with English challenger and English East kent holdings hops as well as cocoa, pasilla peppers, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, lactose, coffee and chocolate. The stout was last seen in September 2019 and is based on the recipe of Chris Banker, who won the 2014 Stone Homebrew Competition."

    Best beer pic so far. Beer itself was mediocre.

    IMG_8549.jpg

    IMG_8551.jpg
    I absolutely LOVED this beer!!!

    IMG_8553.jpg
    Too much like a sour. I didn't care for this.

    IMG_8555.jpg
    High A/V and tasted like it.

    Nope

    This one did me in!! One sip and I almost tossed dinner. It was pure coffee with a tad of alcohol. I love coffee aroma but dislike the flavor.

    IMG_8567.jpg

    After a rousing game out Uno Flip and then Spades, we called it quits at 2a.
    Back to work on the house this morning.

    Cutting back the landscaping.
    Drinking beer
    Building a grill pit.
    Drinking beer
    Repairing bathroom wall and painting entire bathroom.
    Drinking beer
    Securing deck boards and steps.
    Drinking beer
    Putting down pine needles (instead of mulch).
    Then a brother, that has more money than sense, has three townhouses near Wilmington, NC. We were there all day power washing siding and decks, replacing doors and insulation.
    I want to be a laborer on this venture. Not sure what is in store for tomorrow.
