Bulldogger American Lager brewed by Stockyards Brewing Co., KCMO @ 4.7% ABV. Had I known I would encounter such a Lager on the Missouri Craft Brewers Guild month I would have worn my Moore Hat Co Bulldogger doctor’s hat. But on this hot afternoon I chose a Stetson Shantung OR 10X.

Nutty & floral tasting with a touch of camomile perhaps. I would only rate it @ 3 -3.5 / 5.

Last evening's 2.4 " (6cm's) of rain has this morning very humid and it is starting to get hot (high's today nearing 88'f (31'c)). I have consumed a couple glasses of cold brew and a Founders Mortal Bloom IPA before 9:30 am. Granted it is my normal to enjoy a beer when working the grill, but the beer went down easily. Almost too easily. I am switching for the next round of yard chores to ice tea.

I do like the Founders Mortal Bloom. The intense citrus flavors are balanced well by the more moderate IPA hopy tastes. A well balanced seasonal beer. I have consumed a lot of IPA's and either my tastes are dulled or this is more moderate. Today I am going with moderate. Choosing a beer is weather and situational for me. Moral Bloom hit the spot, the right spot this morning.

Not sure what’s happening. I can’t see any of your photos on this page or WHAYWT. Not on the iPhone, not on the iPad. It seems that others can. This happened once before.

Oh man, that is terrible news. I use a file/pic sharing service, SmugMug. They have been secure and reliable for well over a decade. Gary if you believe it is a problem on my end please yell. I can contact the service for assistance.

I checked the file sharing gallery and folder settings. The settings are the same as. I have used for years. The folder the pics come from has been active for many months. I am not sure I can assist. Suggestions?

Further update. On my home network, I can’t see your photos. If I turn off wifi, I can see them. This only happens with your photos, and no one else’s.
This is what I see…

Another idea could be some sort of firewall type issue. since Eric’s photos are stored on a different server, your home network could be taking issue with it.

@Short Balding Guy … the lounge‘s server hosts images directly now and seems to work pretty well. Might save you that extra step unless you just prefer to host them remotely.

Joe; My hosting the pics is for my peace of mind. Early on I found some of pics uploaded to the lounge's server shared around the web. It is not a perfect solution, but I believe in helping keep honest people honest. Nefarious are nefarious. I am warned often by my family, who work in law enforcement, not to post at all. everything in balance. Cheers tonight.

When we drink a good beer, we usually go for Spiegelau glasses. Like a good wine glass, they accentuate the aromas of the beer.

But much of the time, I settle for cheap, not so tasty beer. Good glasses accentuate the lack of flavour, and seem to make them taste worse. In that case, I go for this handmade wood kiln fired beer cup. It creates a really pleasing creamy head.

I had the cheap one first, before Etsuko joined me for the quality one.
We’ve entered the rainy season, so the polypropylene Akubra Capricorn is getting lots of wear.

Later in the evening, we enjoyed some bourbon, Japanese whisky, and Scotch.
