Sunrye Summer Ale

So here' s the update on my new movie and NFL Sunday Ticket package. First of all, everything is turned on, and I can't wait to tell this prick from one of the other offices in our building. He was eavesdropping on my conversation with a coworker and basically made the insinuation that my $2 per month upgrade was impossible. Suck it, dude!

Next, today, I turned on channel 710 and it said that the Eagles v. Saints game was unavailable. I almost picked up the phone to flip out on DirecTV, but smarter, calmer Beer Drinker prevailed. First I checked and verified that every other game was on as scheduled, which is when I turned on the networks to find my game. Whew! Too bad they are getting their asses kicked right now. And I was stuck in a conundrum in Fantasy too, playing Drew Brees and the Eagles DST. Whatever, fantasy is for nerds (unless you're winning).

I'm also loving the movie channels again. Last night on one of HBO's I watched E.T. with my seven year old son. He got to stay up 'til 10pm. Now every one of you cried at the end of E.T., don't lie to me. I wasn't crying but you can't help but feel a little sad at the end. I asked my son if he was crying and he said, "No, this isn't real!" Good point. And while were on the topic of "not real," after the movie was over, the same son insisted on reading a Christmas book. As I was turning off the light afterward, he said that he thinks it's me that eats the cookies we leave out on Christmas Eve. Denied it!

Today I'm drinking Sunrye Summer Ale brewed by Redhook Ale Brewery in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Let's jump right in. There isn't much of an aroma, just some rye and orange, slight hops. The flavors are also pretty weak. You will taste the rye, some orange and other citrus. The beer has a grainy and metallic taste. At least the metallic taste was weak too. Not great flavors and a weird aftertaste. I'm happy to wash this down with a Sam Adams Boston Lager. That's all!

Red Hook sucks.

I am SO jealous of the Sunday Ticket!!!

Well, this Redhook wasn't great (or even good). I think I've had a few others that outsource to them too, and they weren't great either.
