I have some friends who don’t like baseball. “It’s boring’, they say. If you watched last night’s matchup with the Angels, it was anything but boring. We were all on the edge of our seats during that last inning, and I think I downed a pint of Captain Lawrence Pumpkin in less than 5 minutes I was so nervous. Its what makes baseball great. You never really do know how it is going to work out in the end. After the first few innings, it looked as if LA was gliding to a win, and when Lackey got into a little trouble, I thought it was nuts to pull him out. They guy, despite the trouble, was clearly in the zone.
Next thing you know, the Yanks are slamming hits, and you would have guessed that was demoralizing and nerve wracking for the Angels. They came back, and tomorrow, we’ll meet them in the Bronx. Everyone says also that Philadelphia has the edge since they will be getting a nice long break, but the World Series against the Yankees, yes, I said it, there is no way the Angles are going to beat the Yanks in a best of seven, is going to be really, really tough for Philadelphia. That Yankee lineup is unbeatable when they are on. All we need is for Jeter, A-rod and Jorge to be hitting well, and its all over.
Lagunitas has a new brew, and its pouring at Hop Devil Grill. Get it while you can. Its a beautifully crafted strong Imperial India Pale Ale. Pale and hazy, this brew exudes a floral aroma and a soft, buttery mouthfeel. Hops hit you pretty hard, but in a nice way. Watch out, its 8.74% alcohol by volume, which is really strong.
We are gearing up for the Daze of the Devil when Hop Devil Grill will be pouring an eclectic grouping of extra strong ales. The hardest part is getting the great beers.
