This past weekend, I had some Bigfoot and some Old Foghorn. Now, I have tried beers from all over the world and from these U S of A. If there is a better beer than OF, I wish some kind soul would bring it to my house for me to try.
I ain't saying there aren't some beers near as good as OF, but I said BETTER. I don't believe there is a BETTER beer on this tired old planet.
If you call yourself a beer lover and haven't tried OF, you are missing something extraordinary in the beer world. Don't let yoself remain in the status of those who ain't had no Old Foghorn!
As I said above, I also had some Sierra Nevada Bigfoot and also some SN Celebration Ale............two more top notchers!
I was a cooking and beer drinking fool this weekend............wine marinated leg of lamb and the above described beers, a glass or two of Aussie Wine, and of course, short shots of Hirsch 16 YO, Pappy 20 YO, and Rowan's Creek bourbons, and, I introduced my dear brother to Bushmill's 16 YO Single Malt.
When me and my brother brought up the subject of buying a case of the Hirsch 16 YO, our wives said, 'No way, Jose!' And that ain't neither of our names either.
Family and friends were in abundance on the Bowers Farm on Bowers Road in Bowersville, GA. (look it up on the map in NE GA if you doubt me, it is in Hart County, near Hartwell, GA)
Me and Barleycorn were in heaven, but wouldn't you know it, that damn dog clammed up on me and when I told all those folks that me and B'corn have regular conversations, they just whispered among themselves about me having a mite too much of the sauce!
Didn't bother me one whit! And I told that damn dog that next time that we go to Bowersville, he is gonna sing a song for them folks, the one he likes so much about Old Blue, You Good Dog, You!
Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rage at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light. - Dylan Thomas
