    I decided to try Foster's again for the first time in years. The last time I tried it, I did not dislike it, but it was not memorable either. I bought a can of lager and a can of ale. Again, the lager is nothing special; pretty normal-tasting macrobrew. I was somewhat surprised to see it is brewed in the USA. I kind of like the ale, however. It is darker with a bit more flavour. I bought some other local brews also. A new liquor store opened nearby and they have a good selection of SC microbrews.

    An annoying trend right now is adding crazy shit to beer, like fruit and spices. I want my beer to taste like beer. Although, one of my favourites right now is a coffee lager from a microbrew right here in town, so I can't be too judgmental.

    On one hand, I'm totally with you on that. Ever since Constellation bought out a San Diego brewery called Ballast Point, every one of their top sellers has to have this massive number of flavored ones. They had a pretty good IPA that now has at least Grapefruit, Habanero, and Pineapple varieties, there are likely more. I think that kinda lead into this thing where now every major brewery also has to have a hard seltzer, we're basically back to the Zima days here.

    Then I thought about how much I like stouts brewed with things like cacao nibs and coffee and realized I should probably just shut my hole.

    Back in 2008, I visited Vienna. I tried Ottakringer Pils, brewed in Vienna, which I liked. I never saw it in North America until today. My local beer store had a few cans of pilsner. I have not tried it yet, but I hope I enjoy it again.

    Cincinnati has a big local craft brewery market, and I'm always amazed by the number of choices they have that they have made themselves.

    I regret having watched The Queen's Gambit. It's lead me down the path of addiction to Gibsons.

    I was mistaken. I tried Ottakringer Helles, but I bought lager. It is certainly different than what I would expect from a lager; darker, malty and nutty. I think it is closer to a marzen than the lager I am accustomed to. I like it though.

    Lori bought a new blender, so she's been making margaritas.

    A month or so ago, I picked up another bottle of this at the local liquor store, as we had not had it in a while. Lori decided she really liked it and we've picked up another bottle or two since. It makes a great digestif, or just sipping over ice.

    The last time Lori was at the store, she also picked up a bottle their peanut butter whiskey just to try it. It is certainly not as good as the caramel. I wondered how I could make it a little more interesting. I had some unsweetened chocolate almond milk in the fridge, so I mixed it together to make a bizarre choco-PB shot. It's not bad, actually.
