A Bottle Logic-ical Birthday

First off, a big “#HappyBirthday” is in order for the old man.

Phrasing, people!

 

I mean, he made it all the way to 47.  He’s practically got one foot in the grave and here he is, at @BottleLogicBrew, for his surprise party without even knowing what is about to hit him.  Which is a wonderful welcome of friends….if only they showed up on time!

We got there at 7:00 and Ck and Carie had already secured a table for us.  Ck was busy outside being a social butterfly because

he had been drinking since a little past noon and was now considered “shit-faced” by his wife, Carie.  We ordered a round, I got the #714Blonde, which came in at a decent 5% ABV, and Sean tried the Recursion IPA

which was a dark ale measuring a whopping 6.5% on the scale.

The menu board had definitely changed since the last time we were there.  Which was probably for the 2nd Year Anniversary when we got our passports stamped daily to get the free bottle openers and the free commemorative glass.  That had been months.

We were used to drinking She Shot First and Tattered Prince which were nice mellow tasting brews with a somewhat decent alcohol content.

But this time, we were challenged to try the new, and experiment with the different.  Besides, what other choice did we have?

 

So it was Sean and I and Ck and Carie for the longest time.  Then, from out of nowhere, I spot Sean’s friend from college, Nick, who had just got there.  He ordered a Double Acuator IPA

at a hefty 9% ABV, plus a flight which was smart to get the max tastings going on.

Right after Nick arrived, Larry and Susan come waltzing in around 9:00.  Larry had been texting me to let me know he was coming but that work had kept him late so all was forgiven when they showed up.

Forgiveness, Please!

 

They both tried the Cobaltic Porter.  It was dark and came in at 8%.  By now, Sean and I had several different beers in our belly’s and so he was drinking a 714Blonde while I sipped on a 4.8% Lagerithm.

It is a dark lager and it is so mouth-wateringly tasty and light for a dark beer.  It was a contradiction of terms.

I was happy because everyone got along so well and it looks like Nick might be joining the #lagalots for BSB Trivia Night and Munchkin Thursday’s.  It was an awesome time.

Carie & Ck bought a cupcake-cake for everyone to enjoy and hardly anyone did, so the old man and I ended up with a shit load of cupcakes.  At least they’re chocolate!  A drunk time was had by all and I consider it a successful birthday for my old man!  Drink up, y’all!

Highly Bottle Logical

Friday fucking night!  Woo Hoo!  I spent mine getting drunk at @BottleLogicBrew, how ’bout you?

Seriously though, I had a great time at Bottle Logic tonight.  We met up because Brandie @artdesignloveme was  in the OC for the day.  She ate at the Tustin Hole Mole and then met us at Bottle Logic in #Anaheim.  Carie was there too and in absentia was Ck  Chuy Freakin’ Poluka @ FB

I started off with a She Shot First. A light, wheaty beer with a mellow flavor.  I’m used to it, I drink it everytime I come to Bottle Logic.  It’s wonderful.  It goes down smooth and you can finish a lot of them in one night.  Although the alcohol content is a 5.something%, it seems to pack a punch.  Especially after 3 of them.  Haha.

Sean started off with a Rubidium, a red IPA, which I had heard about and wanted to try.  But I guess it was good because by the time I could ask for a sip, he had finished it.  A nice red beer is always our go-to for breweries we don’t know so it was cool for Sean to be able to try a red from an established brewery that we know and love.

I stuck with She Shot First because that’s just the type of girl I am.  But the old man and Brandie ventured off to try the spiced saison, Tattered Prince.  It is delicious, I have had it before so I know of what I speak.  Apparently, they agreed….The Tattered Prince is good.

Carie drank some kind of dark beer the whole night and I regret the fact that I did not either sample her beer nor ask her what in the fuck it was. Carie is a mysterious kind of woman.

It was on and off crowded at Bottle Logic tonight.  There would be a line to order and then 10 minutes later, the line would be gone.  But then it packed right up again.  The curse of Friday night drinking!

There is a back section that is usually open for people and when we first got there, it was closed.  They were busy brewing or something like that.  Anyways, it was super crowded and then they finally opened up the back section.  It stayed crowded all night.

There was the Buffalo food truck outside so we had Garlic Fries for dinner.  Brandie had the tater tot nachos.   Glad they had choices for vegetarians.

I had wished @hoparazzibrew were open tonight.  I would’ve liked to have introduced my friends to their #sourbeer that is so tasty.  Especially the Chocolate Cherry Tarte….in my dreams.
