I know, your mind has been blown. Mine has too. Officially licensed Monty Python products… and it’s the Holy Grail. This gift set includes both Holy Ail and the a Holy Grail Chalice to drink it from! That is indeed a mighty present.
But the fun doesn’t stop there!
We all know that Chanukah is the festival lights, and now, as the box suggests, we can all get lit!
What a joyous time of year!
The good people at the Horny Goat Brewing Company bring us this fine Watermelon Wheat Beer, which is the second one I’ve tried, and I think I prefer this one. Maybe the goats are influencing me, maunder it’s the presence of real watermelon juice… I’m not sure which, but I will say that if you like both watermelon and wheat beer, you need to give this a try.
A few months ago, my 32 inch waist pants were getting pretty snug and stuffing myself into them was becoming a struggle. In early May, this issue went away. What happened? Read the rest of this entry
Because why not? They put everything on everything these days, and at least this looks good. And here at CreativeJamie.com, we are pro sports, pro beer, and especially pro any beer whose marketing campaigns aren’t centered around slogans like “drinkability,” what color the can turns or punching a hole in the top of the can, because apparently, the one you drink out of isn’t enough.
At least the most interesting man in the world is funny, even if he doesn’t like beer that much. “I don’t always drink beer, because I think it tastes like piss, but when I do, I prefer Ommegang.” Yeah, as a quick aside, ask your local retailer for Ommegang – their beer is fantastic and if CreativeJamie.com had an official beer, it’d be the brew from Cooperstown, NY.

And by cinco de mayo party, I mean Dr. Girlfriend and I had a few beers. It was fun – I drop a mean lime in a bottle of Corona. Anyway, happy cinco de mayo for yesterday.
I can’t find a way to make myself look less old in this photo. Bummer.
Much to the chagrin of my waist line, I like beer, and I like trying new beer even more. Seasonal beers really do it for me, and October is one of my favorite months. Sure, Oktoberfest is all well and good, but for my money, it’s all about the Pumpkin Beers. When it comes to a pumpkin beer, I don’t want some tiny little hint of pumpkin (I’m looking at you, Blue Moon), I want to be annihilated by pumpkin and, preferably by alcohol content. Here’s a list of five pumpkin beers I’ve tried, ranked from least to greatest.
5. Harvest Moon – Blue Moon
Like Smuttynose, I can barely taste the pumpkin, but unlike Smuttynose, the alcohol content is pretty mediocre.
4. Pumpkin Ale – Smuttynose
I can vaguely tell I’m drinking a pumpkin beer when I’m drinking Smuttynose, but i can certainly tell I’m drinking a beverage with alcohol in it. This stuff gets it done, one way or another.
3. Post Road Pumpkin Ale –
Good flavor and readily available (at least in my area), so it’s a nice option.
2. Jack’s Pumpkin Spice Ale –
I would say Jack’s has a bit more pumpkin flavor than Post Road, and while the privately owned liquor stores don’t seem to carry it, the grocery stores that carry booze seem to have it in abundance.
1. Imperial Pumpking Ale – Southern Tier
Imperial Pumpking Ale is my favorite, by far. It’s got a rich, sweet pumpkin flavor with a 8.8% abv, its got plenty of alcohol. I’m having a hard time finding it this year, but I highly recommend it. Long live the king.
Sorry it’s been a while in between posts, but I was on vacation for a while – yeah, VACATION! And it was awesome, mind you – TOTALLY AWESOME! I’m working on a monster post about my trip to Disney World that will probably be available next week. If you need some prose in the style of the J-Dogg (yeah, I seriously refer to myself as the J-Dogg; well, not seriously) to tide you over until then, head over to BomberBanter.com, where I rip the Yankees for playing like unmitigated ASS against the Texas Rangers.
