It is time for my next set of pics. Day four from Arizona, this time in Glendale, where we will take on the Chicago White Sox. Well, the game was a complete dud in just about every way(other than Spilly showing off his arm), so I guess we can revisit 1702, ATF and myself's favorite bar. http://www.1702az.com/ They serve the biggest slice of pizza on the planet, but their real claim to fame is the beer selection they have. It is possibly one of the best in the US, and is without a doubt the best in Arizona. So, I got a few pics of the beers we were drinking last night.
I started myself off with a pint of Ten Fidy. This beer hails from my native land of Colorado. Oskar Blues, located in Lyons, is the brewer. This beer has the disctinction of being one of the best to come out of a can. It's thick as motor oil, drinks like a coffee and chocolate milkshake, and give you a buzz like no other (10%ABV). This is also one of the highest rated beers in Colorado. A nice way to start out. http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/2681/34483
This is one of ATF's beers. It is called St. Louis Gueuze Fond tradition from the Brouwerij Van Honsebrouck N.V. Brewery in Belgium. It is full of tart, sour, funky belgian smells and tastes. very much enjoyable. http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/212/5212
This is another beer that I tried. Called The Beast Grand Cru. This beer hails from Boulder, Colorado. Specifically, the brewery Avery. Yes, you are seeing this correctly, it is served in a 3oz glass. Why, because it clocks in at an
impressive scary 14.9% abv. Yep, it's stronger than most wines. The taste was out of this world, with it having more in common with cognac or dark rum than beer. http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/30/15619
This was my final of the night. Kasteelbier Bruin from Brouwerij Van Honsebrouck N.V. Brewery in Belgium. This is a big, bad Belgian Quad. It has very heavy notes of dark fruits, raisins, and dates. Also, it has the typical belgian aroma's that are typical to the style. http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/212/1711
Ok, enough of the beer, lets do a little baseball. Considering I was too pissed at the game to take pictures in the 1st 3 innings, and the final 6 innings put me to sleep, there really isn't much. However, on the way to the park, we did swing out east of town to see the progress on the new stadium. Let me tell you, it was quite a site (construction)
Here is a fence, and some trucks!
More fence, another truck, and some palm trees! This was almost as exciting as the game.
After going through all the pictures taken from the game, this is by far the only one actually worthy of being posted.
JRockies sporting the awesome PR shirts. This was most likely the highlight of the day. Good luck with your drive home, sir.
Well, I hope we have more to post tomorrow. Although, considering tomorrow is my only day of the year to be Irish, it may have to wait until Thursday.
