I'm STILL a self confessing, self professing know-it-all, or so I think!

Fionn MacCool’s WagJagged!

… we WagJagged the shit outta the joint! Tiff signed up for the typical coupon rate – pay $10, get $20. ‘Cept she was asked to complete a survey (said, it wasn’t even really a survey, only a few questions) and would be credited $5 for doing so. Hello? Freebies for Tiff are a no-brainer, lol! And Fionn’s was tacking on an extra $5 worth of fare if you used the WagJag within the first four days it became available. We went day one, lol! Bottom line: $25 credit (for a measly $5) before we even set foot in their PaddyAss pub … AND with our luck o’ the Irish, it was a Thursday, just so happens, it’s $5 craft beers night (they also offer other day of the week specials, but nothing to match this one). Anyways, a few pics (shitty pics, lighting was iPhone awful) …

My name is Dan, I’m a craft addict, lol …

Trappist Beer

I’ve always loved my beer, and have tried/experimented with easily well over 100 brands/names. And those who know me, know that my two favourite beers of recent times are Creemore and Pilsner Urquell … both very high quality and both easy to drink, and drink … and … lol. But since my self imposed beeratorium … and raising a glass with increasing infrequency (I’m somewhat embarrassed calling myself a beer drinker now … I feel like an excommunicated member, lol), I was prompted purchasing these. Trappist beers are a select group … only seven Trappist Monasteries qualify and are permitted to brew beer to be sold as Authentic Trappist Product. Inasmuch as I’m drinking less … hell, I might as well drink the very best … AND these beers (unlike my aforementioned beloved pilsners) are meant to be consumed at a much warmer temperature and really aren’t favourable to drinking more than one or two at a go … you ain’t guzzling, you won’t be pounding these back, lol. They’re meant to be savoured and enjoyed sparingly … which is exactly what I’m doing on this lazy hazy Sunday afternoon. Cheers y’all!!

The obligatory LCBO receipt …

Loved the champagne style corked tops on the 750 ml bottles …

Don’t own a Chimay chalice (working on it, lol), my Leffe beer glass substitutes …

And a halfsack of Anchor’s Liberty Ale (old habits die hard, lol) …
