So the State of Alabama finally repealed one of the most stupid laws in history.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?

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 never believed in truly wireless earbuds. But I bought some galaxy buds at Best Buy today. The first 4 hours of my shift each morning are before my store opens, and It's generally just with one other person that is working on the opposite side of the store. I have to listen for a door bell after a while to let people in other dept in so I can't have both earphones in at once, and I didn't want a dangling ear bud flopping all over the place while I tried to work. I'll mostly use them for podcast listening rather than music so ultra sound quality like a $300 pair of Bose or Jabra's were out of the question. Skullcandy and Ankor had some cheap $70 ones, but I went with galaxy buds since i have a galaxy phone. They were $120, they sound really nice and fit snug in the ear suprisingly. They came with different size tips just in case. Plus the carrying case is super small. They get around 6 hours of battery life each, and the case will recharge them about 2 times before needing to be recharged itself. So if I ever work a full overnight shift they'll last me all night one bud at a time.   I'll have to find more podcasts to listen to as I've burned through a lot of the old eps of the ones I currently follow.

      This skyscale collection for GW2 is crazy huge. This is easily a larger collection than what was required for the Nevermore precursor. If it required a massive gold investment, this mount would basically be legendary status imo. wtf.

      I finally got the time to do some stuff again. I hope it lasts. I finished Stranger Things season 3 which was great and I got multiple hours in GW2. I almost have my 2 large festival achievements done for the big chests.  After that I'm going for my skyscale and warclaw mounts.

      Holy cow, I guess I'll be watching a crap ton of series this upcoming season. Funi is loaded on dubs. I'm a little irked that the new Fate series will be sub only out of everything tho. Fire Force and Dr. Stone are my most anticipated. Cop Craft and Astra Lost in Space look interesting... I see 2 new isekai series that could go either way. Master of Ragnarok set the bar super low, and Sheild Hero set it ultra high for the genre.

      Almost messed up my well by over using it trying to put some water in this pool.. now instead of slow filling it over the next couple weeks while it slowly becomes an algae disaster I'm buying a delivery of water instead. $160 for water.
