fcs,

How is the art world treating you of late?

I wish you all the best!
Doing well, W + A, thanks for your comments! Much appreciated!

Paying the rent and a little "take home" with the sales I am getting.

As you know, art dealer is only as good as the artists he can get of the walls, so the search for quality art is constant..

Finding collectors and spending money on the most effective marketing strategies are two big question marks.

How about your venture? Still want to try it out?

fcs, building a business is always a process, and sounds like you are now covering your nut at least. Congrats!

I'm getting closer, I think. One of the guys interested with me would have trouble if we needed to make a quick capital call so am slowing the process down until more clarity.

This was my first experience with Westvleteren XII. Worth the hype, for sure. Rochefort 10 is now my second favorite beer. Big Grin
Harlot's Harvest Pike Pumpkin Ale.
This is easily my favorite (and the last) of all the pumpkin ales I've tried this year.

Any good?

Pretty decent sipper, light not overly complex but refreshing and with a touch of nice effervescence. The spices, cloves and cinnamon are barely perceptible which is good for me as i don't like cinnamon.
Stone 'Enjoy By' 10/24/13 IPA

This was one of the best IPAs I've had in awhile. I'd imagine its because they likely used the hops that are coming off the vine as we speak. They do these year round, but harvest is wrapping up now, so the hops are uber-fresh and you can really notice it in this beer. Awesome.
BBR you're right, fresh is noticeable.

I was hop picking about 5 weeks ago and fresh wet hops are something totally different!

We made ice cream with some fuggles (along with yeast and malt ice creams to make a deconstructed beer) and it was really very good.
This week I had the pleasure of trying six beers at Agua Mala, a small artisinal brewery in Ensenada. We had a pilsner, wit, Pale Ale, IPA, Amber Ale and Stout. All of their beers are named after sea creatures with an attitude (he is a marine biologist). They are gaining traction in a world dominated by Corona, Pacifico and XX. Really good people to boot. They hope to be able to import to the US soon. I, for one, will be keeping an eye out for them.

This definitely opens up with some time in bottle. Just incredible stuff.
Pretty slow night...

Stella Artois Cidre. I didn't even know they made it, until I stumbled across it at my grocery. On the dry side, with a nice, clean flavor, not unlike their beer.

The best margarita I ever had, in Phoenix, was made from fresh prickly pear. Cool

I just puked in my mouth thinking about this... Ack

The whole Voodoo Doughnuts craze is comical. The place sucks...
Voodoo is an interesting novelty if visiting Portland, but they are doughnuts, so I wouldn't be excited from a "food" standpoint. There is a second location so we didn't have to endure the ridiculous line at the main one. A passable sweet breakfast with fun designs, and surprisingly decent drip coffee.

The collaboration beers they do with Rogue are disgusting.

Quite. T Dub, when playing "Truth or Dare", one should always choose Truth.
