So the State of Alabama finally repealed one of the most stupid laws in history. For the longest time there has been a ban on beer that contains more than 6% alcohol by content. There was no real point to this law as anyone could go to the liquor store and pick up some 100 proof products. Now that Alabama has freed the hops we have access to specialty beers we never could have before. I've been trying as many as I could the past few weeks and I've found a few worth mentioning.

Delirium Nocturnum is probably one of the best tasting beers I've ever encountered. And it damn well better be for the hefty $20 price tag for a pack of only 4 bottles. This was a huge gamble that paid off. Much like Booker's is to bourbon, its not something I'd go out and buy every time I want beer because its affordability just isn't practical. However, this is definitely a top notch special occasion choice. Although its a dark beer, its very smooth and refreshing. According to the label, its been brewed since the 1600's so they must be doing something right.

Another great beer I've encountered is from England's 300 year old Samuel Smith brewery. This Nut Brown Ale is a stronger tasting beer with a ,you guessed it, nutty after taste. I will definitely be picking up their other products and giving them a try. These will run you around $12 for a four pack. Not quite $20 but still pricey... But hey its a specialty beer, not a domestic.

Tommyknocker's Oaked Butt Head Bock holds a special place in my heart. Being a huge bourbon fan, the oak taste of this beer really sits well with me. The beer is cured in whiskey barrels, making it one of the most unique beer's ive ever tried. Its very smooth and extremely satisfying. It's alc content of almost 10% doesn't hurt either. :P This one will run you $10 for a pack of 4.

At first glance, 4 packs may seem a bit of a rip off... but the upside is... if they aren't good, at least you only have 3 more to drink! X'D (Stay away from Great Divide's Yeti... that's one example)

I've never seen any of those beers! O_O

Delirium Nocturnum... I want to drink that just to see the pink elephants on the bottle jump to life! X'D

That oaked sounds really good tho. Have you come across any lighter beers with higher alcohol content?

Not yet. :P Most of these are only found at my local liquor stores. I'll let you know if I find any lighter beers with higher content.

Thats odd.. have any mom & pop stores around there? It definitely wont be at big chain retailers because they're special interest products rather than "lets go get wasted for cheap" products lol.

None that I know of. Liquor stores cannot sell beer and supermarkets can't sell liquor. So theres no store that has a huge variety of beer. Wegmans and P&C are the only stores that have a decent variety, but much of their variety is regional beer and believe me, Saranac beer in all its varieties taste like ass to me. -_-;

I did see a beer called UFO that looked interesting, but I think it would be too dark for my tastes.

-_-; what kind of law is that!? I know our supermarkets can't carry liquor, but our liquor stores all carry beer, even domestic stuff. In New Orleans, anyone can carry liquor, you can even pick up a 5th of Makers at the gas station. X'D

      I saw a partial eclipse today from where I live. I didn't have the eclipse glasses since there wouldn't be much to see here. But Lady made a makeshift eclipse viewer with a box and some foil. It worked great and we could easily see the crescent shape of the moon over the sun. Even with 70-80% coverage here the light was only slightly dimmed for a while and colors looked a bit off. Other than that it was like any other day. I was half expecting the sky to darken more, but apparently 20%+ of the sun is still bright as f*ck.

      RIP Jerry Lewis. I remember watching Dean Martin/Jerry Lewis movies when I was young. He made me laugh as a child.

      I'm almost done with GARO: Crimson Moon. I'm pretty disappointed with it. Its no where near as good as GARO: The Animation was. The story is pretty meh, and they reduced the golden night to some sailor moon type format where he only gets to transform at the end of the episode and wins in 2-3 moves. It reminds me how Blood-C is inferior to Blood+ as they both take place in similarly unconnected time frames.

      I just finished Drifters on Funimation. Its from the same people that made Hellsing. This was a better product IMO. I honestly don't get all the love for Hellsing as its ending is shit, and a lot of stuff is never resolved. The premise of Drifters is that legendary historical warriors/fighters/tacticians passed on to a different realm when they died and end up on the good or evil side of a new war. You have people like Rasputin, Anastasia, Joan of Arc, Sundance Kid, Butch Cassidy, and a lot of Japanese legends... most notably Oda Nobunaga. Whats strikingly controversial is that Jesus is pretty much an evil overlord, even though they cover his face and call him the "Black King" the fact that he has holes in his hands, and can heal, and produce food out of nothing makes me laugh when I looked it up and the wiki says "His identity is still a mystery". You can just listen to the stuff he says and know who it is. Anyways, the action is great, the gore is on the same level of Hellsing, and the story is really good. Season 2 should be coming out in the future.

      I got an interesting email from Amazon about something called the Carnivore Club. It looks pretty neat, but damn It's too expensive for my comfort. I'll probably sign up for 1 month and cancel just to get a box. I've never been apart of any subscription box service before because I don't need random junk every month that I might or might not like. But I can eat this stuff, that all looks really delicious. If I could afford $55 a month for some snack meats, I'd do it. What caused me to post about this was the fact that it has two 1 star reviews written by angry vegans posting about how sick and disgusting it was, and how they are promoting cancer and cardiovascular disease.
      I remember back in the day I always looked forward to Christmas because we use to get those boxes with all the cured meats and smoked cheeses in them. They're pretty hard to find now, at least in the quality that they were back then. Now you just get some basic summer sausage and Kraft tier cheese. The Carnivore Club reminds me of the old fancy ones minus the cheese.... hmmm I wonder if there is a cheese club?
