Update - Bourbon Oaked Brown Ale

This beer turned out fantastic. I had one a week ago, and it wasn't carbonated enough. It had been about 4 weeks, I assumed it would be done.. but it wasn't. Tonight I cracked one open and poured it into a glass sample glass. A nice creamy vanilla ice cream looking head on top. I smell caramel and bourbon right up front. The mouth feel is smooth and light, with moderate carbonation. The taste is awesome. A great blend of bourbon and chocolate with a wonderful nutty finish.

I started sipping on this and had a great idea. Earlier when I was on a shopping trip, I picked up a couple of those chocolate cadbury eggs. I cracked one open while I was drinking this and sure enough, they go perfect together. I don't often eat chocolate while I drink beer, but the two of these go so well together, I might actually tape up a cadbury egg to each bottle I give out it's so darn good of a combo. I bottled up a ton of these and plan to enter a few into contests this summer.

Cow Tongue Taco's - Part 2

It's not every day a friend lets you know he has a big cow tongue sitting in his refrigerator. But when it happens, it's a party waiting to happen.
Chef Nick (his mom) will be serving up fresh cow tongue taco's this Friday night @ the DRB. Since we're all on vacation, we're starting the party early - 6 p.m. If you've never had cow tongue taco's, you're missing out! Come out, try one and hang out with us. If you can't make it, keep an eye on the DRB-Cam, we might just have it on. Taco's will go quick, show up early!
