So I snore... did I ever post about that? I know that I started to one sleepless eve, but I don't think I ever finished up. 'Least, I can't find it in the archives. I know that at least one person has... I was compared to a frieght train. Heheheh. No, I don't take issue with that, because the lad was right. 'Tis true.

I've got a snore that has brought horny grizzly sows, seeking violent sex, and Wookiees, seeking a great chief, to my door, and I've had to turn the Wookiees away. I've rattled dishes, and shaken trees. I snore so frickin' loudly, I wake myself up... no lie. Partly the product of a couple broken snoots, but I was doomed from the get go. The whole family is littered with snorers, though I'm easily the King. Hell, I'm awake right now because poor R (who's got an impressive snore himself) keeps laughing... we have to share a room, and about everytime it sounds as if I'm going to settle down into a steady breathing pattern, I spaz out or something. All I know is that while I'm keeping him awake, his frickin' laughing is driving me nuts. I got up to go over to the other side of the suite (we've got a condo... two suites side by side) to drink beer, listen to Psychostick downloads and The Perfect One's two kiddie's crying, and to bore you folks all to death at the same time! Ain't you lucky?!

We're staying at the Great Wolf Lodge here in the Dells. As I mentioned at the old home, this is the first time our whole famn damily has gotten to get away together in about twenty years or so. Eleven of us, all told. My mom, the four of us kids, two significant others, four kids. Hell, I think my mom is as excited about this as the kids are. She's already talking of making this an annual event.

We went to Moose Jaw Pizza and Brewing Company for supper. It was a bit pricey, but everyone agreed that it was pretty decent. I ordered their sampler, The Ten Pointer, where you get ten five ounce samples of their different beers. And, since I believe that you should be able to walk away from here with more than a cure for insomnia, I rated their beers. Just for you, people... just for you. Again, I sacrificed my liver for my unseen friends on the intraweb thingie. Anyway, here they are:

1. Light Ale: Very good stuff for a light ale. I wouldn't be afraid to drink many of these....

2. Honey Ale: Not bad at all. As a matter of fact, it's pretty good. Not too sweet, but it's there. R and I both agreed that there is another honey wiess from a company up North that is a little bit better, but this easily works.

3. Wiessbier: Exceptional... a very good wheat ale.

4. Dells Pilsner: Okay. Has a slightly fruity taste, but finishes up sharp. R stated it best... the finish is like celery juice. Not the taste, but the feel. A little too light for my taste, though two others having the sampler liked it...

5. Dells Chief Amber Ale: Me like alot. Very smooth, I could find myself knocking multiple pints back. Easily.

6. Raspberry Creme Ale: Among the four of us that tried it, no one cared for it. It's not bad... just not our taste. The raspberry isn't overpowering, and the initial taste is good... the finish is pretty lacking.

7. Kilbourn Hop Ale: Starts out great, kinda slaps you in the face, and finishes great. Another candidate for multiples. Kinda like Murphy's, without the buttery finish.

8. Apple Ale: Pretty damn good, the apple flavor was definitely there, but not overpowering at all.

9. Nitro India Pale Ale: Not so very good... at all. I don't really care for IPAs, so this rating may not be fair. But as far as I was concerned, this is the only beer not worth drinking there...

10. Milk Stouts: Mmmmmm.... damn good. You could taste the beer before your lips came in contact with the heavenly liquid. Not for the lactose intolerant.

There you have it... T1G's rating of Moose Jaw Brew Pub. Should it influence you? Not really. But you can trust me not to stick you with a crappy beer... or can you? Bwahahahahahah!!!

Okay, I know that I've bored you folks to sleep, because I'm nodding off now. I think I'm off to snore and listen to R get pissed.... I'll check back in with you all later.

Thanks T1G, I look forward to checking out the MJBP next time we are at the Dells. The Milk Stout sounds particularly delish....

Out of 12 beers, you only disliked 1. Hell, even I'm pickier then that.

Actually, the count was ten, with two that I was indifferent, and one that sucked. Hell... I don't believe in wasting beer, but I barely was able to choke the IPA down. I thought that I may have to dump it under the table...

... true, man... after you spent the night.. every picture in the house was crooked the next morning.... you rattled the walls, boy.... I was impressed...

It's a trend, IPA sucks in general!

Everytime I tried to comment it told my I had questionable content...

Bring me a beer back. The wheat kind preferably :)

I'm not sure I fully understand beer mixed with milk.
