    Saw a dude the other day in my 'hood carrying home a 12-er of Beck's. I had to scrape away several layers of neurons in my skull to even remember what Beck's was. :andruw:

    tapped my first cider this evening. i purposely used an ale yeast as opposed to a champagne/wine yeast, so it wouldn't end up too dry. mofo is still hella dry but with a boss apple flavor. i carbonated it pretty high but fits the style. added a touch of table sugar at the start of fermentation, bumped this bad boy up to 7% abv.

    Only reason you live/moved to Logan was because it became a hip place with trendy bars and restaurants. Now after having kids you are butt hurt about having too many bars and restaurants?

    Also the only reason you have drunk people walking down Logan is because THEY ARE YOUR NEIGHBORS. Logan doesn't have a stretch of bars, they are pretty much all concentrated along Milwaukee.

    Then move if you don't like it. Also go open up a small artisan shop if you want those around. Apparently no one is clamoring for those.

    A classy brewpub by a nationally renowned brewer? Fuck all that. It would clash with all of the decaying firetrap shitholes on that stretch of California Avenue!

    It's like the shitheads who move to the NW suburbs and complain about ORD noise.

    Pipeworks is the definition of an "artisan shop." This should be nothing like a Lakeview bro bar, and the alternative isn't a place that makes candles from the earwax of Guatemalan peasants.

    I guess this is the
    :whitepeople:
    version of all the Mexicans who complain whenever non-Mexican people open nice things in their neighborhood. Because god forbid some white guys turns a crack house into a business that employs people who live in the neighborhood.

    Not only that but a local brewer and a business that will be sustainable and create jobs.

    Also I think this drunk people keeping me up thing is a myth. Yeah sometimes there are drunk assholes outside making noise but drunk people usually don't loiter around a single area and make noise, they are walking through. So the noise disturbance lasts, what a few seconds? And I've seen Logan Blvd late at night, it's not like it's a stream of people walking around at night as you might see in Wrigleyville or River North. It's just a few people here and there.

    Yeah white NIMBYS are just as bad as the Mexican anti gentrification whackos. Anyone who opposes a business opening nice things is a complete RF. Like you said this isn't going to some run of the mill bro bar or some nightclub that attracts the 'wrong element'. It's going to be a craft beer brewpub where most of it's customers aren't leaving shitfaced.

    Oh, I'm sure I'll be leaving shitfaced. Last time I drank Pipeworks (at a bottle share last week), I barely made it back to the el. I'm just not sure that you, me, and Tony leaving shitfaced is any worse that what currently is happening on fucking California Avenue.

    OTOH, if sycked is leaving shitfaced, they might have a valid point.

    Also when guys like us leave a place shitfaced, we aren't bros looking to go start a fight with some other group of bros. We just typically get a bit loud and as you said, it's not anything worse than what normally happens now on California Ave.

    Carrie should convince her husband to let her open a bridal shoppe or a record store.

    :lol: at making the neighborhood "smelly." Does California Ave. currently smell better than delicious malt and hops?

    Got a private tour with Tomme Arthur at Lost Abbey on Monday. I mentioned how much I love Duck Duck Gooze and he pulls out an unlabeled bottle from his private stash from 2016 that we all shared at the bar. Nice guy. We drank for free as well as received a 75% discount on any beer-to-go.

    I want to go to the Boo HaHa. But like every other Friday beer event, its a late night event and I have to figure out how to get the fuck home to RF. A lot easier when its downtown. Probably will leave by 9:30 to grab the Halsted to Ogilvie then Metra to RF.

    And the more I read about that event, the more awful it sounds. $30 for strobing, glowing lights and extremely loud, most likely awful music? Ehhhhh. Tap list is decent and all but I'd rather pay full price at Parlor.

    Beer list rules but I don't have any desire to be in a crowd of costume wearing dopes with all the things you listed: strobe/glowing lights, loud most likely EDM or top 40 dance music. It's a good value for the beer but sometimes you're just willing to pay full price to avoid the other shit.
