    If signed into Ymm, beer law, I *think* I've already found a loophole:

    Boston Lager
    Summerfest
    The Purist or Old Tuffy
    Pacific Wonderland Lager

    (to name a few )

    I laughed about this post for the whole drive home. (Well, intermittently but you get the point).

    Are the virtual pubs on Zoom?

    Eleven or 12 ounces for the two liquids, over about an hour each with one after dinner and one at bedtime; the key lime pie was about three or four ounces which took about a minute and a half to consume.

    Gooch posted "most discerning tastes and sharpest of wit," though I'd bet we'd be able to pull it off on Zoom (I have no experience with it yet ). We haven't done one yet that way but would be an excellent idea. One problem would be that most of us seem to post over 8-12 hours during the days of the Virtual Pubs (no, we don't drink for 8-12 hours but spread our posts/comments/tastings over that time).

    I’m sure someone could set up a zoom conference for a specific time and date, say when they are replaying one of our big games on ESPN.

    I have Zoomed (free app) but not sure how to set up a room and invite folks. But the ones I did, once you have the app it really is about as easy as clicking the link to the meeting — er, pub.

    Just gotta make sure I don’t confuse this with a court argument.

    I can set up a zoom if there is interest; wed just need to set up a specific time window.

    I'm free pretty much any time on the weekends. I can make it happen during the week if needed.

    Oh, my, I don't even want to consider the possibilities (none good) of discussing one bourbon, one scotch and one beer before the judge, by George.

    Can we still post excerpts of our tastings on Ymm, Beer. Imagine the possibilities...

    Appearance-clear; cookie yellow-tan
    Nose-Is that you in the kitchen, Grandma?
    Mouthfeel-smooth
    Tastes-cookie spices including ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla and maybe a few others
    Adjuncts-they have a recipe on the label for gingerbread cookies with all the above plus butter, brown sugar, orange zest and molasses
    IBU-I'll go with 20
    ABV-5.4% (it's a cookie, not a beer, remember?
    Overall impression-very pleasant novelty beer; happy to split over two nights; tastes like liquid cookies
    Ymm, Beer rating-middle shelf cat 2; Santa would have enjoyed this last week
    Liquid dessert #1 last PM:

    Clear Sky Coconut Cream Pie-Wolf's Ridge Brewing

    One of several variants of the base cream ale, Clear Sky. Local for one family member

    Credit-son of devildeac from last month's trading session; thanks!!
    Format-bomber, half last PM, the other half currently under review
    Packaged on-Jan/31/2020
    Style-spiced/flavored cream ale (yea, fuse, I can *almost* taste the cream )

    Nose-I didn't know Mrs. dd had this in her recipe book

    Adjuncts-toasted coconut; vanilla beans

    Credit-not sure if this is a son of devildeac credit or August West; thanks to both as I have two 4 packs!
    Bottled on-10/02/19
    Style-flavored maple syrup/bourbon barrel aged imperial stout
    Format-12 ounce bottle
    Stemware-Founders snifter
    Appearance-mahogany with a foamy beige head
    Nose-coffee, dark chocolate, bourbon, maple syrup
    Mouthfeel-fudgy
    Tastes-mirror the aromas; dark caramel; molasses
    Adjuncts-coffee, chocolate
    IBU-(shrugs)-maybe 50
    ABV-11.3%
    Overall impression-worth the hype, even if it is the last brewing of this for about the 5th time
    Ymm, Beer-strong cat 3; world class; worth the $6/bottle

    The main difference with this and the tailgate review/s are the serving temps. I think the tailgate sampling was at about 45 degrees or less with no chance for warming. Last PM, I chilled a bottle for about 15 minutes in the fridge, poured and sipped over about 45 minutes, pretty near room temperature for most of the tasting. World of difference with the flavors.
    Dessert #3 from last PM; liquid dessert #2

    Hey, it's been *almost* 4 months

    CBS-Founders Brewing Company

    See above review. Sipped over about an hour just before bedtime. Still an amazing beer. I'd buy it again if they ever decide *not* to brew it again after their 4th (5th? 6th?) claim to that effect .

    Depends on the judge; I’ve been out after midnight with a few. But — yeah.

    And, I would zoom.
