The OverServed Vacation Desk is back on the road…

WELL HEY THERE, BUDDY. Oh, hi, old friend.

BEEN A DOG’S AGE SINCE BEER WAS DISCUSSED ‘ROUND THESE PARTS. It has been a really long time. I’ve been… busy?

AS GOOD AN EXCUSE AS ANY. WHERE DO YOU FIND YOURSELF TODAY? I’m visiting my forbidden love again, Minneapolis.

THE HELL YOU SAY. Indeed, I’m at Indeed.

AND WHAT IS THAT GOLDEN BEVERAGE YOU HAVE BEFORE YOU? I’ve got the Wooden Soul #1. AKA Heliotropic, which is a saison aged in white wine barrels with Brett.

BRETT? OUR OLD COLLEGE CHUM? I THOUGHT HE WAS MORE INTO BUD LIGHT AND SUCH. No, not Wheeler.

WHO THEN? Brettanomyces. We’ve discussed this.

RIGHT THEN. LOOKS LIKE THIS IS A 7.3% BEER. WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF IT? It’s a beer for people who don’t like things that taste like beer.

I JUDGE THOSE PEOPLE. WHAT SORT OF FLAVORS DO YOU ENCOUNTER? Sour. And barnyard-y. And winey. It’s a challenging mouthful.

YOU JOURNEYED THAT FAR FOR “BARNYARD-Y”? You know I love this place. Don’t ask such foolish questions. And try the Wooden Soul #7 if you want to do something important with your life.

That's my hair.

That’s my hair.

Thanks to Matt, who has been known to indulge in barnyard-y things from time to time.
