Tapping The Twins!


OK, by now you may or not know about Deckard's Kitchen & Kegs. If you don't and are curious, go to www.kitchenandkegs.com. You really should, but not now. First I need to tell you what's going on, so just settle down over there. Geez. I say "kegs" and you're off just like that. I get excited for kegs too. I understand.

They will be pouring the last firkin in town of Left Hand Twin Sisters Double IPA. How good is this beer? We killed a firkin (10.8 gallons) in 31 minutes in Cumming on Wednesday. That is almost three pints a minute, which means that the tap was barely closed. Nice work people. Great turnout and better than great people. The firkin at Deckard's Kitchen & Kegs will be a little bit different because it will be getting pulled through a beer engine. What does that mean? Extra awesomeness. If you are interested in tasting this beer, and/or finding out why I am telling you about an event that is not at a Taco Mac location, you will have to show up to find out.

Did I say "event"? I meant events. There will also be a beer and cheese pairing at Deckard's Kitchen & Kegs on Tuesday, October 26th. It goes like this: three breweries named Victory, Dogfish Head and Stone made a collaboration beer called Saison du BUFF (Brewers United For Freedom), and there is a keg of it coming to Deckard's. This beer, along with two beers from EACH of those breweries (Yes, that makes seven. Congratulations, you can now advance to the second grade or something.), will be paired with a different cheese. Fancy cheese, not the shredded kind. There will be beer people in attendance, one of whom is the beer and cheese pairing guru from Stone. This guy is out of control when it comes to his passion for beer and cheese. You don't want to miss it. I won't. Actual listing and price will be available very soon.

Sorry that I don't have my Boston weekend pictures for you yet. I might get around to that this weekend, but I am pretty swamped. Big U of M game Saturday, then I am going to see Ron White at The Fox. Don't know who Ron White is? He's a comedian--you might say a foul mouthed one--famous from the Blue Collar Comedy Tour. He's the one with the cigar, the scotch and the dirty jokes. Don't like dirty jokes? That's your business I guess. Do you know who invented dirty jokes? Cavemen. That's right, cavemen. They drew them on the cave walls and laughed their asses off until other cave-people came by and told them that they were childish. And when that jerk left, they asked each other if someone could please pull the stick out that Neanderthal's butt. Then they laughed at that for a while until someone drew another dirty joke on the wall. This went on for hours. True story. Look it up. It's called history.

Have a great weekend. Go Blue!
