Street 'drinking' - the 'eletist' way
F*ck yeah. That's me, Lord Pompelroy Chuwy-Saint-Chuwy, with none other than a Stone Ruination. A nice classy fruity yeasty Belgian in a freshly bought glass for my fresh fruity (he's not yeasty, ladies!)friend, SirJonnoReginaldSmythe, the Third, Esquire. There are no premium malts on this street, my lower standard, lower class friends. SirJonno definitely set the elitist standard bar way the f*uck up high when he purchased a very fine and expensive Belgian brew and then, THEN bought a fine Belgian glass to drink the bugger in! That's the way to do it. I just stuck with my crazy hopped monster of a San Diegan beer and drank it 'hobo style'.
Bloody good brews, they were, too. We were walking from Tanakaya in Mejiro to the Country& Western festival in Ikebukuro. The festival was very good and I managed to get 5 pints of Iwate Kura beer for 1500yen. Not bad. It definitely pays to know people.
More on Saturday's travels in the upcoming post. As for now, it's time to get very,very drunk.
Also some info on the new Baird Taproom which most of you should already know.
