1000th Beer Review

Posted my 1000th commercial beer review today.  Decided to go to Freetail Brewing and have some on-tap beer goodness and a pizza to commemorate the occasion. The beer I chose for the occasion was Freetail’s Chipotle Porter.

Flavor and Aroma notes:

Aroma is just a touch of pepper, but lots of roasty, dark malt goodness. Flavor is heavily weighted towards the peppers, it’s pretty spicy and might be a bit more than some beer drinkers would prefer. The staff will be quite forward about it tho, ask for a sample.

Body is medium and leaves a lingering pepper heat.

Overall: Very porter like in appearance and aroma. More pepper-beer like in taste.

Now as pepper beers go, this is a fine one. There’s a good strong pepper presence, with a good little touch of heat. Spicy! But very enjoyable! And the pizza was damn good too!

Yakked with the staff and one of the brewers for a while too. Picked up an Old Bat Rastard for my buddy, and for my self. Great job on making great beer Freetail!

Yeah, this recipe for Guacamole looks fantastic. I’ll be shopping tomorrow. However, I don’t promise to only use 1/2 a cup of cilantro! It is, after all, the answer to almost all of life’s problems!

I enjoy making guacamole because it is oh so easy and great for topping over chili, having plain, or adding to a delicious sandwich.

What you will need:

  • 4 Ripe Avocados
  • 2 Limes, juiced
  • 1 Roma Tomato, diced
  • 1 Small Red Onion, diced
  • 1 Jalapeno, seeded and diced fine
  • 1/2 cup Cilantro, chopped
  • 1 tsp Ground Cumin
  • 1 tsp Fresh Ground Black Pepper
  • Kosher Salt to Taste

Cut the avocado across the center and split in half. Using a large spoon, take the pit out of the avocado. Place the avocado in a bowl and using a large spoon break up the avocado but don’t mash it too much. Stir in the…
