    As a saying goes, "We'll be there all day." Plenty of lagering and pilsnering to do.

    I think fuse is also waiting for the word from Gooch as to when he should set up Zoom for an hour or two during which a bunch of us might meet with our thirsts readied and our glasses filled.
    Yup- if folks are willing, I can set up a zoom for Saturday.

    Mt. Hatemore. It's granite so darn near permanent and to hate the cheats like that is happiness forever. Beer is temporary...

    I will kickoff the Virtual Pub in the morning on Saturday...get your lager/pilsners ready! The "bartender" will be unavailable for much of the day, but I trust you all to keep it civil while I'm busy cleaning out my basement.

    Thanks, fuse for offering to set up a Zoom -- I'll leave it up to you to pick a time that works best for you.

    Not making any assumptions about DBR and time zones, for those who have interest, please weigh in on these options:

    Noon-1pm ET
    2-3pm ET
    5-6pm ET

    Given I have sooooo much else to do around the house 🙄 any of them would work just fine for me. We’ll open it up and keep it going for as long as folks want to chat.

    I'd vote for 5-6 pm ET but I'm pretty flexible.

    Thanks for volunteering to do this.

    Double Death Spiral-Trophy Brewing Company

    Real local

    Credit-it was on the shelf, I thought I liked it several years ago and was 15% off
    Format-pint fomite
    Style-DIPA
    Freshness-smudged stuff on bottom of can
    Glassware-snifter
    Appearance-hazy yellow with hints of gold; moderate foamy head
    Nose-OJ, rind, pineapple, peach, mango
    Mouthfeel-moderate bitterness
    Tastes-pretty close to the aromas; some honey (added); a drop of resin
    IBU-guessing 60s
    ABV-8%
    Overall impression-very good; might be even betterer if fresherer; restores some faith in this brewery as some recent IPAs/NEIPAs were boring
    Ymm, Beer rating-mid/upper cat 2; the honey helps save this IIPA as the store owner said it was approaching "old"

    Mrs. dd: "What's that tray of cans in the bottom of our fridge?"

    dd: "I'm supporting local craft beer stores and NC breweries."

    Mrs. dd: "What are those brown 32 ounce containers with swing tops doing upside down in our dish drying rack?"

    dd: "Bottle Rev is having mini growler specials 4 days a week now."

    Mrs. dd: "I hope fuse (or Tripping William) is coming over to help you finish one of those, especially if it's >10% ABV." (this she really didn't say )

    Just glad she left my name out of it. (Though nice to see her briefly this weekend in a virtual way, hope we all can get together down the road).

    I submit to Gooch that OPK is allowed to drink his moonshine with rainwater Saturday, if he plays his smartest/dumbest Country Western songs live via Zoom.

    I'd also vote for the 5pm-6pm Zoom time, but can be flexible whenever it works. Looking forward

    Yea, I'd go down *that* road.
