      Boxing Bear brewery, a local brew pub with an excellent selection. Today is Scotch Rocket, one of my all time favorites. Bad thing is they only have it for a month or so each year.

          It was excellent! Very bright citrus not heavy on the juniper. Married well with the tonic. Fresh and lovely. Definitely recommend it.

          Jamaican Blue Mountain. In my opinion (and many many others) the best coffee on the planet. My wife is partial to Kona which is a distant second for me. Old Glory

          My wife drinks tea by the gallon except when we go to Jamaica then its JBM.
          The caffien sends me thru the roof so I stay away from coffee.

          texastweeter Got it. Good stuff! I may have to side with your wife though. On our honeymoon my wife and I toured a Coffee Plantation in Kona. They served us the best coffee I have ever had.

          I Picked up a bottle of Makers 101 during a tour of the Distillery. Haven't opened it yet but it was very good during the tasting. Was our first stop so I believe I was still able to taste at that point

          tmelosi I'm trying to develop a taste for Bourbon, tried this in Dallas last fall and found it quite passable at that time.
          It was a third of the price duty free even in USD than it is up here at the LCBO.
          Still haven't cracked it....

          • Healthcare- Licensed & Registered Respiratory Therapist (RRT) for MidMichigan Health, a University of Michigan Health System.

        Coffee here, at work.

        I do however have a couple bottles of EH Taylor coming from Flaviar that I ordered, and 2 more on reserve in my whiskey vault (my closet) which if my math is correct will put me at 4 bottles of that lovely stuff on hand. It is hard to find so I am happy about that since it's my favorite bourbon. I will pretend I'm sipping bourbon and not coffee.

However, I will occasionally have a vanilla porter float in the summer (Empyrean Vanilla Porter w/a scoop of homemade vanilla ice cream) as I usually drink stouts & porters in the colder months, pale ales & IPAs in the warmer months. I have to add Not Your Father's Root Beer to beers I use for floats.
              * - Booze - I don't really have a favorite, but lean towards single malt Scotch & Irish whiskey
              * - Wines - Reds: mainly the heavy stuff mixed in with the occasional pinot noir ( I have yet to meet a malbec I didn't like); Whites: German & Nebraska (hey, I have to support the home team)

                The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                the good one grill

                The Good-One Open Range is a charcoal grill with an offset smoke chamber attached. It is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. The grill sits low in front and doubles as a firebox for the smoke chamber which is spliced on above and behind so it can work like a horizontal offset smoker only better. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                Our founder, Meathead, wanted the same steak knives used by steakhouses such as Peter Luger, Smith & Wollensky, Morton's, Kobe Club, Palm, and many others.

The beefy hardwood handle provides a comfortable grip secured by three hefty rivets. He has machine washed his more than 100 times. They have never rusted and they stay shiny without polishing.
