Updates They Are A'Comin'

Title says it all, but I'll leave you all with this to tide you over.

Yes I've been slack. Yes I will continue to be slack. There will be something new though.

Well based on the glowing review by the Cheeselover on the above "brew" I headed out this week determined to get some to sample before our beer pairing dinner in Scottsdale Friday night. Amazingly enough it wasn't hard to find. I went googling it and stumbled on a local guys blog who had sampled another variety. I emailed him and, heh, his suggestion was BevMo. I hadn't even thought they'd have it. They did and I picked up a 4 pack today after work. It's not cheap that's for sure. BevMo isn't cheap in the first place. They do have a large variety and they're close so they get my business.

Anyway, it went in the fridge as soon as I got home and I popped the first one open about two hours later. I wasn't sure what to expect. I had a feeling it wasn't going to taste like anything I'd ever had before. I was right and my first impressions of it were mixed. As the ingredients listed on the front of the bottle suggest it is sweet. I wasn't as ready for that as I thought. There's also a hint of bitter in there too, but just a little. I've been drinking it out of the bottles so I'm not sure what it looks like or what type of head it might have.

I paired it up with some Stouffer's five cheese, white sauce, french bread pizzas. These have a creamy white sauce as the base, with five different cheeses and a bit of red chili pepper thrown in for good measure. I figured this would go as well as anything with this beer and it turned out I was right. The creamy spicyness of the pizzas went well with the cool, sweetness of the beer. While the tastes are completely different this beer works well with spicy food the same way a gerwurtzaminer does.

I've since cracked open another one to sip while I write this. There is definitely a honey aftertaste. Not a strong one at all, but it's there. The more I taste it the more I like it. I don't think I would want to drink this one all on its own, but it's certainly a beer I would want to have with a meal. The fact that it's a 9% also factors in to having it with food.

Definitely looking forward to having this Friday night matched with something complimentary. Friday night can't get here fast enough.

Update: Whew. Definitely feeling two of these suckers.

Update 2: Just realized I never linked to the brewery or named the beer itself. The brewery is the Dogfish Head Craft Brewery and the beer I was drinking tonight was the Midas Touch Golden Elixir. Pretty neat that this recipe is their best guess on a recipe from 700 B.C. It looks like the beer we're going to sample on Friday is based off of an even older recipe from 7000 B.C. China. I can't wait. This is gonna be fun.

Update 3: Just in case I didn't like the above beer while I was at BevMo I picked up a 6 pack of Rogue Dead Guy. You know just in case. Really.

Oh So Tasty

Stumbled on this today. Pulled from here. It's a dead blog, but I got a chuckle.

The story goes that during Hurricane ‘Iniki, many local Kauai chickens and fighting roosters were freed from their cages. They roamed free, and, as wild chickens often do, they multiplied beyond control.

The local Kauai government is reported to have tried to entice the local population to begin enjoying killing and eating the Kauai chickens as a means of population control. The following recipe is posted as a means to enjoy the local denizen:

Kauai Wild Chicken Recipe

* 1 wild Kauai chicken
* 2 onions
* 1 Cup of chopped pineapple
* 1 bunch of seasoning of any kind
* 1 large volcanic rock
* Salt. Maybe some pepper

Put all ingredients into a large covered pot. Simmer over a low flame for a very very long time: until the volcanic rock is soft and tender. Discard the wild chicken, and enjoy.

No Title

It speaks for itself I think. Not sure why, but I really liked this. Could be the music. Could be the idea. Don't know. Don't care. Made me a bit weepy it did. I'm turning soft in my old age.

It's been a long time since the last update. Not a whole lot was happening hence the lack of posts. Then the past two weekends happened and there's now a plethora of info and pics. Two weeks back we went to Vegas. This last weekend I brewed beer and then attended the demolition of the SDDD by the LADD.

First things first. Vegas. Showed up Friday after flying in from Los Strangeless. Immediately took a nap. Heh. Damn oldness. Mrs. LK was already there for work so she went downstairs to tune up the crowd for me. Amazingly they all left me alone to actually take a successful, much needed nap. After that it was off to Bouchon for dinner at eight. Mmmmm, dinner. Expensive, but delicious. After that we headed to Planet Hollywood for some end of the evening, err, end of the morning libations before bed. The walking scenery at PH wasn't bad either. Made it back to the room by four. In the morning. Weeee!

Slept until two the next day. Man did that feel good. Mrs. LK headed off to work at who knows when o'clock in the morning and I had the whole bed to myself for hours. Owww-errs. Ahhhhh. Finally rolled back downstairs and hooked up with Donnakins and Mr. Fancypants. Played a few nickel slots with them and a bit of video poker. Good times. Mrs. LK got off work around five? I think. We then all headed over to the Hofbräuhaus for dinner and drinks before the Raconteurs concert later that night at the Hard Rock.

The Hofbrau House was absolutely rockin'! We had our whole party with us at that point. Myself, Mrs. LK, Donnakins, Mr. Fancypants, Mr. Kimono, the Chinese Jet Pilot(CJP), Rosanna Kicks Ass(RKA) and Cheeselover. We filled the table. Great table too. We were the second table back from the band, Trenkwalder. We got there early enough to be able to enjoy our meal while still getting the party started prior to the concert. The party was started my friends. Oh. My.


As a preface there were a number of what looked to be bachelor party groups in attendance. There was also a woman going around the room selling Jaeger shots accompanied, if desired, by a paddle to the fanny. Ow. She was very enthusiastic with the paddle. Somehow Mrs. LK managed to talk one of the members of the band into doing the same thing to RKA. Hence the vid and pic above. More pictures over here. The concert was way better than I anticipated. I haven't gone to a "concert" since I don't know when. You know too loud, too many people, blah, blah, blah. I ended up really enjoying it a lot. The pictures, while vibrantly colored, really do no justice whatsoever to the show, but the colors are pretty.

I was going to post about the brewing and the skating here as well, but I'll leave that for later. Back to work. Yeah. Right.

UPDATE: Couple of things. One is a correction to the Bouchon night. I totally forgot about Bill's. Bill's used to be the Barbary Coast. Quite a bit of slot action occurred there. Yes I do mean slot, not slut, although there was an inordinate amount of that as well. Not to forget the marathon session of Let It Ride. CJP actually got shushed by the dealer for celebrating when someone else won. That's right he was told to keep it down while winning was going on at the table. Lame dealer.

Second additional bit. This picture.

This guy was part of the entourage with the band. I'm not sure how long they had been in Vegas or how long the party had gone on before they showed up at the place to play, but this guy totally snoozed out for a good little while. Even with the band playing right behind him. I couldn't resist after coming back from the restroom and had to sit down next to him. Heh! We danced later as well. Absolutely totally awesome fun night.
