      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Decided to go with a half-rack of something light, crisp, refreshing, and domestically mass-produced, since I've got the rugrats for the w/e. So I went with...

You should know, I also picked up a sixer of each of the following:

And a lime, of course...

I bought a $90 bottle of Woodford Reserve Mastercraft small batch ultra-premium estate the other day and matched it up in a blind taste with 2 Bourbon snobs against a $50 bottle of Bernheim and a $33 bottle of standard Woodford Reserve Distellers Select.

 

The expensive bottle last, cheapest bottle first, by a wide margin.

 

The last bottle of Chateau Mouton Rothschild (A red French wine, probably selling in the $200 range) I opened up (last month) received a 60 plus (VS the published Robert Parker 91) from the wine snob I blindly shared that with and asked what he thought the rating was...sigh...I need to work on my snob presentation:-)

 

The moral of the storys: I should have given the dude the Woodbridge. That's some great stuff. Essentially "$4 Buck Chuck", I'm drinking it now and it's great.

It's good to finally see some quality, craft brews in a can. Like Caldera Brewing of Ashland, OR. Wish I could find some around here.

The Whole Foods around here carry them... check the ones in Portland.

Thanks for the tip. There is a new "By the Bottle" specialty beer store that just opened in Washougal and I have requested they carry it too. Hopefully they will start stocking it soon.
