    This was definitely drier than most. Quite good, honestly. WildCraft Cider Works in Eugene, OR. They’re brand new, and they’re just on tap locally at the moment. But they have plans to bottle and distribute, though I don’t know what the timing on that will be.

    I went to a hard cider release event last week at which the cider purveyors spent a great deal of time emphasizing that their cider was dry. Very dry. No one else does dry cider the way they do dry cider. Let me tell you about the dryness of this cider. By the time we got around to tasting it, I expected to be handed a glass of sand.

    But no. It…[Read more]

    Thanks, Julia. The last few weeks my brain has been running on fumes, which makes it extra hard for me to know whether I’m being a wit or a half-wit. 🙂

    I have to confess I’m having a hard time parsing your comment. I’m not sure if I’m being taken to task or agreed with, though to be sure my own “Dear Beerslima” wasn’t anything more than a reference. I assumed my intent, here at Skepchick at least, would be understood, but perhaps I assumed wrong.

    Dear Beerslima…

    • I know what it’s a reference to, but I can’t stop imagining that you’re addressing a Dragon Quest slime made of beer. Or perhaps a beer-loving slime (Maybe that’s how fire slimes are made, they steal some poor traveller’s alcohol, get too close to fire, and the alcohol burns). Presumably, Beerslimas would be the grunts of Julia’s army of doo-I…[Read more]

      • PS Apparently something happened with that comment. It’s supposed to say “And to actually get on topic (Sorries! DX)” before beginning to talk about the article. Probably screwed up something, sorry!

      • bcmystery, I don’t want to speak for Keveak but I’m pretty sure he’s with you, and just having some fun with the word “Beerslima.” I loved your comment and thank you for your kind words 🙂

    Lately I’ve been seeing a lot of ads for Consumer Cellular. I kinda assumed it was the cosmos reminding me I’m a mere two months away from being eligible to join the AARP.

  • There’s always a guy like you who shows up in the comments to dissemble, distort, and misrepresent reality in the same tiresome ways. Christ, but you people need another fucking hobby.

  • I’m sitting here at my desk like I do every morning and checking Skepchick, like I do every morning, and mostly I’m thinking about all the work I have to do today. I saw this post and I thought I would hold off […]
