So the State of Alabama finally repealed one of the most stupid laws in history.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

      Finished Gundam SEED tonight. As cliche as it could get, I still really enjoyed it. Mecha designs were above average.... and despite a lot of recycled animation during battles, I still found them engaging and entertaining... and all the love interests swapping around tickled my fancy. Character deaths were pretty brutal as well. Its def worth watching for the average fan. Better than Unicorn, but not IBO as far as recently watched Gundam series.

      I have to get a dead tree cut down on my property. Its going to cost me $500. x_x But that doesn't include the removal. To save money I'll borrow a chainsaw from one of my friends and cut up the pieces myself. The tree is tall enough that when it eventually falls, it could hit my house, the garage, the deck, the pool (when its up for the summer) or my propane tanks so its got to come down.

      Its been a month since my root canal. I had another appointment yesterday for the rest of the work. They removed the temporary filling, xrayed it to make sure its all good, then did the permanent filling, then shaved/shaped the tooth for the crown, then imprinted my teeth/jaw line with a mold, then put on my temporary crown. Took them an hour. My new permanent crown will be ready in 2 weeks and then I'll finally be done. This root canal situation has been quite the experience. $1200 total after insurance. I have another tooth that might need one if it gets another cavity. If that happens I think I'll have that one pulled instead since its in the far back. Screw all this. x_x

      One week ago my little dog Elsa had to get a surgery to remove a few bad teeth. The vet initially though it would be 2 teeth, maybe 4 max. After they did the xray they noticed she had severe bone loss in multiple parts of her jaw and the majority of her teeth had to be removed. She has 1/3 of her teeth left.  The vet thinks it is a genetic issue that caused the periodontal disease to ravage her jaw the way it did. Shes been healing but its been a struggle. Very depressing week but shes over the worst of it now. Shes starting to feel like her old self but we're still trying to find a soft food she enjoys. More bad news is after we heard it was genetic, we checked our other dog Bella because they are cousins and she has 2 loose teeth in the front. Once we get some stimulus money we'll schedule xrays for her to see if her issue is as bad. Elsa had horrible breath going on as the main symptom but Bella's breath is fine. I hope she only needs the 2 little teeth removed. My poor babies.

      A friend was able to score me a PS5 while I was at work today. I'm pretty pumped!
