Tuesdays with Dirty: In booze, there is peace.

I spent the last few days up in the cool pine trees of Flagstaff, AZ. I ran into Mr. Gnome and we discussed the finer things in life over some good Scotch. We sipped and shot the shit in the sunshine and, as you do in these situations, came up with some pretty good ideas. Be ready.

I just got home from my trip up north to find a rather large box on my front porch. The return address was from an old friend back east. An old friend that I had recently gotten into an awful disagreement with. Having an argument with somebody over text messages, phone,and email is never fun. Throw in a few thousand miles and a couple time zones and it becomes extra miserable. I was really expecting it to be a bomb, or maybe a poisonous snake..nope


That’s a six pack of Davidson Brothers IPA and a bomber of Cooper’s Cave, Radeau Red. Both from upstate New York and both are going to be delicious. By the time I finish these, I’m pretty sure I won’t even remember what the argument was about. This might be the best way to settle a disagreement I have ever seen. The next time you find yourself faced with an angry friend, go to the post office. Throw a handful of obscure local micro brews in a box and send them off.  Now if you will excuse me, I need to make a phone call. Keep it dirty…

  1. Dude you gotta be shitting me!  Davidson Brothers?  Do you know how many times I have eaten there and drank that delicious beer?  One of the brothers even offered me a job cleaning the huge vats in the basement for like $5.00 an hour.  I am not making this up.
    Fucking Cooper’s Cave???!!!! Man I drank  Radeau Red ON Lake George IN a sailboat before Cooper’s Cave Brewery existed with Ed the brewmaster himself.  I used to get growlers filled up there by Patty.  Delicious.  They are all delicious.
    Sorry to go on man.  You just flooded me with good memories of Glens Falls, NY.  Even when you don’t mean to, you represent well.  Or, in this case, a good friend did.

  2. yay! more props for upstate n.y.
    we may not have all the superbuff singletrack, but we gots kick-ass brew!
    why is the bourbon way in the back?

  3. The distillery is the smallest in Scotland and in a not very picturesque part of the country, but worth a visit if you ever make it over here. We had to phone two taxi drivers to come out in one taxi and drive our car back to our digs after a tasting session raged out of control a few years back. Try and get hold of Talisker if you can, fabulous whiskey, with all the palatable qualities of Semtex…..
