In Topic: The 2014 World Cup- Brazil

As for Argentina, so much better than Portugal, they have 3 top flight stirkers, Portugal has 1, Aguero, Higuam & Messi are all so dangerous...  Argetina is very susspect in the back though....

Di Maria too, guess he's more of a winger, but he shoots a ton, and he's another threat.

It was tough, but we survived the Group of Death. Just glad when I get to Brazil finally, the US will still be there.

Lately I have been finding myself to enjoy west coast IPA's more than east coast ones.  Anyone have good recommendations for west coast IPA's?  Not really into Imperial IPA's or Triple IPA's.

I like triples, so I may not be the best person to go by, but Stone in general is my favorite brewery, and they specialize in IPAs. I actually prefer their session beer, Levitation, which still tastes pretty IPAish to some of their actual IPAs. They're also doing some interesting stuff, mixing some Belgian yeasts with IPA hops and the like. I'm also a huge fan of Great Divide Titan IPA, though I got a bad 6 pack last time.

 

On an unrelated note, just picked up a bottle of Allagash Curieux. As some of you may have noticed, I am often attracted to whiskey beers. Sometimes this attraction leads to disappointment (actually, often, it seems like a ton of breweries use whiskey barrels as an excuse to half ass everything else). Allagash nailed it. I had Kentucky Bourbon Barrel recently, and liked it a lot, but I preferred the Curieux. They age a Belgian beer, which creates a couple of different flavors that really evolve in your mouth. It's a well brewed, interesting beer. A bit expensive -- I dropped $17 for a bomber -- but well worth it for a treat.

Great class. Burns deserved this honor while he was still alive to enjoy it, but it cements his legacy as an all time great coach. Just glad we were lucky enough to reap the benefits, though he didn't get nearly enough time.

Had the chance to try a bunch of beers from Other Half, all of them excellent. They're a new operation in Brooklyn. Here's hoping they're able to establish themselves.
