So…just a heads up. Monday $3.00 Pint Night at BackStreet Brewery in Anaheim has gone up. Not for all of them, but for the ones with an ABV of 7% or higher expect to pay the premium. I ordered a Tomahawk IPA and then I got informed of the new standards. A Blood Orange Animation IPA with a 6.5% ABV ended up being my drink of the night.
So take a look at the menu before you go ordering. Don’t get a Tomahawk DIPA, Holy Shizz, or a Straight Stoutta Anaheim or you will pay full price.
We had a fun night of drinking and hanging out playing Quiddler. You can get it on Amazon and it is totally worth it. Hours of fun are to be had making words. It’s like Scrabble but with cards.
On the tenth and last round, we combined our words to make a funny statement:
The word “Clue” was just a leftover. It has nothing to do with she binding thine fine sex. The final score of the night was The Old Man with 294 and me with 249.
But really, what is up with the 4 drink limit? When the Old Man was ordering our 4th beer, the brewtender asked if we would be okay to drive home. WTF? I guess there’s a first time for everything. And here’s a new sign in the boys bathroom:
I have a feeling they got busted for letting people do bad stuff like smoke joints in their patio and get really wasted on over 7% beer.
Last time I was here, smoking a bowl or joint on the premises was not unheard of. Rules, right?
The food truck of the night was Monster Burgers….
….and they didn’t have veggie burgers. They had a few non-meat items but I didn’t end up ordering anything. The loaded fries looked appetizing but I had pigged out at Souplantation earlier so food was not in my forecast.
There was a monthly schedule posted for all the upcoming events and happs. I was glad to hear that Wednesday Night Bingo will be back. It’s a lot of fun without any old ladies stealing the wins. The different food trucks that come during the week are listed too. I’m trying to get my man’s band, Chuy Poluka & The Bar Room Junkies, to play in September or October because they have bands playing on some days.
There were quite a few precious puppies who came to BSB tonight but I think the award for the best beggar of fries goes to Kelsey, some kind of wonderful golden lab shepard mix.
Look how she zeroes in on those loaded fries. Expert level begging, I say.
There were at least 2 other doggies and I was impressed. I think it’s great to bring your fur babies to a brewery. Not so much with the fleshy babies.
So there’s the update for BackStreet Brewery in Anaheim. A few changes since last time but nothing that I can’t deal with. I will continue to show up for $3 Pint Night on Mondays with the knowledge that a 7% or higher beer is full-priced. It’s not a bad rule, just new. I just have to get used to it.
