Get to drinking.
After 10 years, it’s time to clean this place up.
The best reason yet to subscribe to Amazon Prime, Skyline Chili delivered. And not just delivered in two days, free, but really cheap. I just bought an 8 pack for $2.33 per can. Now when I go back to Amazon it’s showing it to me for $2.03 per can. Amazon really knows how market to […]
We were missing Indiana, so made a homemade pork tenderloin. Yummy.
Old Potrero Rye = Skyy Rye? Anchor Steam by Skyy? Skyy Gin?
Bill Brand, great guy and great reporter for the Oakland Tribune’s Bottoms Up column was hit by a MUNI train last night.

SF Beer Week kicks off Saturday. Are you ready?
Here I am, sitting in Magnolia Gastropub, 4 beers deep into their excellent strong beer menu. Only 2 to go, listening to Grateful Dead. oh how I hate the Grateful Dead, but I love this place. It’s, the beer… Gose To Heaven – imperial hefewiezen? Strong banana flavor, but in a good way. Nice, strong, […]

I wa knee deep in 20+ holiday beers when all of a sudden the Bears / Packers game appeared on the TVs here at Toronado.

I occasionally get email from people asking about Cincinnati and Skyline chili — various things. But this email was from someone who has put a lot of really good thinking into developing a Skyline clone recipe. I’ll be using some of these discoveries in my next batch.

Some of the original 60 Corny kegs that he bought to transport beer to and from breweries, way back in the beer stone ages, […]
It’s been a while since I’ve posted an Indiana Sucks post. I thought I might be free from the pain…. But this one was just too perfect of an example why the red state known of Indiana is at least 75 years behind the coastal states: Indiana Teacher suspended for giving student a book Perry […]
