Scavenger Hunt - Drink

Now I don't want all of you to think I'm a lush but I do like good, stout, dark beer.

The above is a gourmet selection I bought at Christmas.  It's a sampler from Pennsylvania Brewery or Penn Brewery in Pittsburgh.  It's an ancient brewery that was recently revived as a restaurant (great food) and microbrewery.  Now, they are branching out and actually selling the beer.

When Joey and I were in Fla. this past summer, I got Penn Pilsner on tap.  The Oktoberfest and St. Nikolaus Bach are outstanding. 

(Yeah, Steelers!)  Had to add that.  It's sort of a double-edged sword though because Indy's coach, Tony Dungy, played for the Steelers years ago and is such a class act.  His youngest son commit suicide this year right before Christmas.  He looked so bad today.  My prayers go out to the Dungy family.

thanks for playing - great entry :)

I like beer with pizza in the summer.

Yeah Steelers too! That was a game, wasn't it! I was on the edge of my seat a lot in that second half.

I felt so sorry for Tony Dungy. He did look so bad; so tired, so grief stricken. I was hoping in a way that their team would win so that he could have something to concentrate on for a few more weeks perhaps, but maybe its time to let him grieve, know what I mean?

I did not realize that had happened to his son until my daughter told me today!! Sorry but I was hoping that they would win just b/c of what he has gone through!!!! Good entry Chris!

Amen on the prayers for the Dungy family.. He coached here in Tampa for a while too.  We loved him.  My husband likes HackerShorr beer.  Always gets it a the German Restuarant we go to sometimes.  GBU, Shelly
P.S. I couldn't get on the computer all day, and tonight when I finally did...I had 270 emails, group stuff and journal alerts!! OMG!

Chris,  You would fit right in with the Sunshine group.  Most of my neighbors brew their own.  It should be an good game next Sunday.  David.

Hubby used to brew his own, it wasn't bad either.

Not a beer drinker(make mine bourbon) but cheers!  
I am so sad for Coach Dungy.  He's been a favorite of mine for years.  I don't know how he's doing it.  I had a feeling things were going to go to @#$% for Indy after his son's suicide.  I'm sure it affected the entire organization.

How sad, that's what that they were talking about on the radio yesterday......
I'm always thinking I need to try more beers to find one I like.
Great choice!
Linda :)
