I was in Philadelphia this last weekend trying to watch the final couple of games of the season. On Saturday night I was in the hotel room going nuts on gamecast and then Sunday we realized MLB.tv was streaming games for free so we were able to flip between TEX/OAK and SEA/LAA. What a finish to the season. Went right down to the wire. The A's were trying to give the Mariners the wild card spot all September but the Mariners just wouldn't take it from them. That was a hell of finish though. For a while I thought I was going to owe Wonk 40 beers at the end of the year and it is pretty incredible that I only owe him 1. I am going to make it a good one though. Hats off to the A's for pulling their shit together on game 162. October is going to be fun!

Would love to see Le Butcherettes on the bill. I will be seeing them open for the Melvins in Bellingham and Seattle next month but Terri would be a perfect addition to the weekend. Also, Mike Patton's label is releasing the new album so maybe they will have a couple Ipecac Recordings artists...

I can't wait to hear this one. I pre-ordered the record and got an email indicating that the release date is pushed back so I probably won't get it until mid October approximately. Glad to hear it is good though.

Pretty sure I am going to be able to make it down for the Saturday A's/M's game. Maybe I will see some of you guys down there. Should be an electric atmosphere that night. King Felix on the mound, postseason hunt and should be good weather.

Made a trek out to Yakima/Sunnyside yesterday. Visited Snipes Mountain Brewery and Bale Breaker Brewery. Snipes Mountain was interesting. They were telling us that they have been open for 17 years. The current head brewer has been doing it for the last 4 years. He said that it is owned by some fruit distribution company and their son was a homebrewer way back and wanted to open a brewery. So they made the brewery and restaurant. It has never been profitable largely due to the ever changing head brewer position. This guy seems legit and wants to turn it into a profitable venture. His beer was really good, too. My favorites were their session IPA and dark English mild. He seems to have it going in the right direction. The food was bleh but whatevs.
Bale Breaker is a relatively new brewery. It is situated in a hop field that used to be called field 41. Their flagship is Field 41 Pale (even carried at Safeco). They clearly have a lot of money put into this place. If you are a hophead this is the place for you. Even their blonde was hoppy. All of their beers were good though. Successful trip over there until we were surprised by rock blasting over the pass. Fuck that, 1 hour delay just sitting there.
