Well, not really, because it's the wrong player. ;)

But at least Ozzie Smith was a Padre at one point...

Whew.

FIGJAM (No. 76) is an Australian acronym. It stands for "Fuck I'm good. Just ask me." That sums up my personal opinion perfectly.

Beers No. 89-100 were all had at a beer festival up in Perth. Rocky Ridge Brewing employs a friend of mine, so I drunk for free at their booth. The Spontanyuzu is perhaps the most sour thing I have ever put in my mouth. I have a pretty good sour tolerance, but the pucker force was strong with that beer.

Denmark, W.A. is a town on the south coast of Australia. We go there for a holiday every spring. Boston Brewery is about four years old, and they keep getting better and better. Artisan Brewing, also in Denmark, actually operates out of Boston's facilities. They are actually better than Boston and are my new favorite craft brewery. I left that beer festival excited for my trip to Denmark in October.

As busy as August was, it's just going to get busier in September, because that's when I went to Hawaii for my brother's wedding. If you never thought of Hawaii as a craft beer mecca, well, it's time to change your thinking.

I hit the brews in Maui HARD. Maui Brewing was insane. They were all over the place, and there were so many different choices. There was even one beer you could only get at the hotel I was staying at. Their own brewery was crazy - 32 taps, and most of them pouring their own stuff. The Skull Island Stout is the best beer I've had so far this year.

With 140 new beers tried by the end of September, I guess the real question is, will I hit 200 new beers this year?

The big news in Australian craft circles, which I footnoted in my list, was the sale of two big names in Australian craft. First, 4 Pines Brewing out of Sydney was bought by AB-InBev, joining noted craft breweries such as Goose Island, Golden Road, Kona and Widmer Brothers under full or partial AB-InBev ownership. Then, about two weeks later, Feral Brewing, a mainstay in Western Australian craft brewing, was bought by Coca-Cola Amatil. Not only is CCA the Coca-Cola bottler for Asia-Pacific, but they also brew many beers under licence in Australia, including Miller, Coors and Molson. The reaction amongst some WA beer snobs when the Feral news broke can best be described as similar to the reaction in the SoCal Hardcore scene when bands like No Doubt and Green Day signed deals with major labels.

It pays to know people. I have been cultivating relationships with folks at two local bottleshops, and it's allowed me to get my hands on sought-after limited releases such as the Pioneer from Colonial and Cheeky Monkey's two DIPA seasonals. Being a beer snob takes some work!

25 to go to 200. I think I can do it, not least because I have approximately 15 more new beers sitting in my beer fridge, waiting to be drunk.

I don't know that I've had 175 drinks in my entire life.  The few beers I do like can't have too much hops-y taste... in other words, I don't like my beer to taste like beer.  But domestic light beer might as well be water.  Needs to have a good alcohol content, or what's the point.

so you like ciders, goses, and sours?  maybe a coffee stout (which dominate the stout market, unfortunately.  it was a nice novelty, but now it seems as if it's a mainstay.  please leave)  or something else

I don't even know enough about how to describe what I like.  I do like a good whiskey sour, a vodka tonic when I'm drinking hard liquor.  When I am at a place with a giant beer menu, I'm looking for something like Blue Moon, Stella Artois, Bass... or if it has key words like "citrus" or something like that.  Typically those are lighter tasting beers without being "light".  Hefeweizen at Hofbrauhaus is a favorite.

I don't drink like hard cider or hard lemonade or anything, because I'm a man god dammit.

Today is International Stout Day. Why they decided to have International Stout Day in the middle of the goddamn spring when the weather is getting warmer, I'll never understand...what's that? You say it's autumn and getting colder in the Northern Hemisphere, where 80% of the world's population lives, so having International Stout Day in November actually makes a lot of sense? Well slap my ass and call me Charlie.

Anyway...

179. F-15, Feral Brewing

The Atomic is from Gage Roads, which is a fairly big local craft brewery. Because they're fairly big, their brews end up in big venues such as the new sports stadium, or water parks, as the "craft option". But make no mistake - it's more "accessible" (read: mass market) than normal crafts.

The gose - oh, what a gose. I've been requesting that at one of the bottle shops I frequent, and they finally came through. And it was worth it. Two or three weeks since I first saw it on someone's Untappd feed, and it was sooooo good. Dainton is quickly becoming one of my favorite breweries.

And then there's the F-15. OMFG. As the name implies, this was brewed for Feral's 15th anniversary. Aged in bourbon barrels (so right there it gets my vote) I was able to pick out bourbon, of course, but also vanilla, chocolate and coffee. Maybe even some peanut butter. Not to mention the contact high just from pouring the little fucker.

I'm going to need to get some more of the Granny and the F-15. These are two beers I'm going to want to drink again.

The Tangerine Dreams was the standout for me. Canned on Thursday, bought on Friday, drunk on Saturday.

The Sour Buffalo is a white coffee stout. Looks like a lager, tastes like an espresso. That will mess your brain up.

Six weeks to go. 200 is well and truly in sight (especially as I have 14 new beers in my fridge).
