Pretty Things is closing up shop

Well shit.  Such a great brewery.  Meadowlark is one of my favorite IPAs.  They will be missed.


Beer in Bali

My wife and I spent an amazing 2.5 weeks in Bali.  Other than a couple of beers a friend brought for me from New Zealand, all I drank was Bintang, mostly because that’s pretty much all you find.  It’s a typical pale Asian lager, but what stood out for me, other than the atomsphere for it, was that it had absolutely none of the nasty aftertaste most of the Asian lagers have.  Plus, it was refreshing in the heat; so much that my wife, who loves some heavy IPAs, sours, and Belgians, asked for it often.
