Thirsty Thursday 6/9-6/15/16

Thursday, June 9

Jason was in a beer mood and opened a Best Damn Cherry Cola. He took one sip and pawned it off on me.

Appearance: drank from the bottle

Aroma: cherry Mr. Sketch scented marker

Taste: follows smell with artificial sugar and cough medicine aftertaste

Feel: light body, moderate carbonation

Overall: I really think that Best Damn Brewing Co. needs to change their name. I’ve tried two of their products now and they were both terrible.

After a slow night at work, a couple of my co-workers and I decided to hang around for a drink or two. Jason concocted this White Peach Sangria with some sort of white wine, peach schnapps, and pineapple juice. I’m not a fan of peach anything, but this was pretty tasty.

Still in the mood for something sweet, I ordered a Malibu Bay Breeze. It’s made with Malibu coconut rum, cranberry juice, and pineapple juice. I am a lover of simple fruity drinks.

Nothing.


Friday, May 20

Two of my co-workers and I hung out for a bit after work and had a drink. I didn’t take any pictures of my beer on Friday, but I had a Barrier Brewing Company Icculus Kölsch.

Appearance:  straw coloured, foamy white head

Aroma: fruity, grainy

Taste: grainy, grassy, fruit (lime?)

Feel: crisp, light body

Overall: I don’t think this beer is a great example of a kölsch style, but I like it nonetheless. It’s super light and has a good amount of flavour.

Nothing.

I covered a wait shift at work today that started out quite hectic and ended pretty slow. Knowing I had a double to look forward to on Monday, I just had a simple Hot Toddy while writing up some blog posts.

Thirsty Thursday 4/28-5/4

This past week of drinking was a bit crazy. I started off going hard and decided to taper off rather quickly due to the sheer amount of alcohol consumed.

Thursday, April 28

New York City public schools were on their spring break this week, so Jason had off from work. He still a lot of work to do for grad school, but made time for a date day on Thursday. We dubbed it to be the Thirstiest Thursday because we’re degenerates. He decided that we should go to Brooklyn and try a bunch of places we’ve never been before.

Our first stop was Brooklyn Crab for lunch. Jason’s brother, Mitch, recommended it and it’s a place I’ve been wanting to visit for a while. It was chilly and the downstairs outside area wasn’t open for the season ye, so we opted to sit upstairs on the second floor. It was very cute with wooden chairs and tables and garage door style windows. There were even little holes in the dividers filled with different types of hot sauce. (I regret not taking pictures. I was embarrassed to because there weren’t many customers and the staff kinda just hung out in the dining room.) The space has a lovely view of NY Harbor.
