……..I mean four more years, four more years! It was indeed a fun-filled election night. The outcome of the presidential race was exciting and quite a relief. I don’t want someone telling this ol’ dino that he can only marry another dino. What if I fall in love with a turtle, a frog or heaven forbid a hairless primate. I’m just saying… Anyway, I knew that Ratchet from Ratchet Brews had made a special beer for the occasion. How cool is that? It was available at the Downtown Casual Pint. He actually made a clone of the White House Honey Ale. It was very good. Sweet with a British yeast flavor.
Ratchet obviously won this one. I’m sure Mr. Obama’s beer was great but I have never had it. I doubt Mr. Romney even knows what the hell an ale is unless he’s lying about some things! Ratchet’s was mighty tasty, Ol’ Saccy ended up having several which was fun but made me a little drunk. Apparently in the midst of all the excitement I forgot to eat.
Kara and Nena seemed to enjoy the fun as well. They and the other people that work there are definitely a big reason why I LOVE the Casual Pint so much. They came up with most of the ideas for the signs that were placed strategically around the bar.
Another huge event that occurred this week was the release of Saw Works Brewing’s Double Chocolate Porter. I popped down to the Casual Pint on Monday which was the release date, had to be there for that. There wasn’t much of a crowd, most likely because it was Monday and it was a bit chilly out. The beer was very good. A chocolate nose, subtle chocolate flavor with a nice hop finish. I had it again on Tuesday just to be sure I liked it! I still did!
