I ventured over to wordle ( and entered the URL of this blog.  The bigger the word, the more times it appears in the blog.  As always, life wins.  Or I win at life.  I can't decide.

back to basics.

Sahara Mart East in Bloomington, Indiana is a fantastic place to find many rare beers.  I happened upon two bottles of my favorite (and sadly discontinued) beer, Liefmans Goundenband.  They were vastly underselling them at $5.50 a bottle.  Travis and I decided to open one with dinner the other night, as I thought its sour qualities would pair well with our steak and goat cheese mashed potatoes.  Sadly, it was way past its prime.  The amount of sediment made the mouthfeel wholly unpleasant, and the sour fruit I so love in the taste fell very flat.

I'm still holding out hope for the other bottle, but am banking on disappointment.
