One Bourbon, One Beer

I’m currently drinking through a bottle of Russell’s Reserve 10-year-old small batch bourbon. It’s made by the master distiller at Wild Turkey. Not having a shelf full of bourbon to do comparison tastings I’m uncertain whether it is overly vanilla-y or I’m just tiring of the vanilla character of bourbon. I have a feeling it might be the latter as I have lately been drinking more Scotch and Irish whiskey. At any rate, I doubt I will buy this particular brand of bourbon again. I’ll try and grab a bottle of my standby Evan Williams single barrel (purely for scientific purposes, of course) before Russell’s is gone.

Audra is taking violin lessons at McCourt’s in Berkeley. Since I am the most musically knowledgeable parent in the household it became my responsibility to chauffer her to the lessons and talk with the teacher about her progress, etc… It happens that McCourt’s is two doors down from Berkeley Front. That’s where you’ll find me every Thursday between 7 and 7:30, plenty of time for a couple of pints. Last week it was Weihenstephaner Festbier on tap, a gorgeous, malty lager that ranks right up there with the best of them.
