I didn't know Colorado was on the west coast!? Since I live in Nebraska, does that mean we are now a mountain state? But I agree about Fat Tire and other New Belgium products, I like their Abbey Ale and Trippel even better. The brewery tour is fun as well.

Beer is good.

Back reading of the beer thread is good.

Drinking a beer while listening to Axioms and reading the beer thread is even better.

ObBeerTasteThing: Snoqualmie Falls Brewery Steam Train Porter is one big, delicious robust beer. Huge, chocolatey and bitter. This is NOT your father's Oldsmobile (or traditional english porter, for that matter). Very highly recommended.

I just checked the Fed Ex status of my M60s and it's, " On FedEx vehicle for delivery"!!! Now I have two big decisions to make. What will be the first music I play on my new Axioms? And what beer will I be drinking?
I'm leaning towards Charles Mingus (debating which disc) and New Belgium Abbey Ale.
Any suggestions?

Coltrane would be good as well.

If your up to something not jazz, try DSOTM.

Your ears will go, "Hey, I have not heard that before."

Mine did.

Hey, stick to the subject!

Last Sunday whilst participating in the weekly Pub Trivia game at Berkeley's oldest pub, I had a very delicious Schneider&Sohn Aventinus, a wheat doppelbock. It may just be the best wheat beer I've ever had. Highly recommended!

So, Peter, do you win such contests? I'll bet it's pretty competitive there.

Was the Schneider Weisse on draught or bottled? Sounds fabulous. Thanks for the tip.

Oh - I recommend Chimay Premiere with new M60's

Chimay is a great idea. I only buy Chimay on special occasions (it is a bit expensive), but if getting a new set of speakers isn't a special occasion, I don't know what is.
It'll kill me, but I have to wait till tomorrow to hook up my M60s, as the wife and I have tickets to see Richard Thompson tonight. An embarrassment of riches.

It is very competitive. A typical game includes a couple general knowledge rounds, a matching round, a picture round (ID the person(s) in the pictures), a music round (ID the band after listening to a 30 - 45 second clip), and a random category (e.g. Early European History).

I've never been on a winning team. Depending on the week and how much we've had to drink, we've finished anywhere from 3rd to somewheere in the bottom 5. There are usually 15 - 25 teams competing. This last Sunday, we were in second place after a couple rounds, then dropped to 3rd, then 5th, then 7th, then 11th. A sorry record, but at least it was a nice prime number progression.

There was a place on Penn campus that had a trivia night on Thursday nights. I would go for $2 imperial pints of murphy's stout, and play. I played quite a bit, and our team hit 1st twice, 2nd once, and 3rd four or five times. Prizes were $65 off your bar tab for 1st, $35 off for 2nd, and a case of beer for 3rd. We always got a case of murphy's when we got 3rd. Loved that place, best cheese fries I've ever seen anywhere, by a very very long shot (and half price after 11 at that!)
