Thank you Stuart. 1922-1972 50th anniversary
Yes, 1922-1972. My typo error (now corrected, along with another - too much 'tini?). 1972 was the first year since 1960 that Queen had a tang stamp, so my typo was a clumsy one. Wasn't the Drake Well, etched on the main blade, down on nearby Oil Creek where oil was first discovered in America? Fine photo, BTW.
That's my understanding Stuart. And I believe Titusville celebrates yearly with a "Drake Well Festival" ?
My wife came home with some Chimay!
A pint of cask bitter and a basket of chips seemed the perfect way to celebrate today's arrival from Yorkshire.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
Makes my mouth water. What a fine barlow you have there Greg!
I've been MIA from this thread but still here. I'm going through the ringer at work and in personal life. So I've still been lurking and enjoying everyone's posts. I was able to score a bottle of 13 year Old Fitz in a decanter. These are going for spear point TC Barlow prices on the secondary. I'm onto the Blanton's now and have to put the Old Fitz away for special occasion. Pictured with 2 of my favorite knives.
It's Friday, time for a bit of indulgence.
Inspired by Taylor's hazy IPA's I decided to try something new ... and I like it
Thanks @JohnDF and @Fodderwing!
@Shock_ nice to see you here. I hope things get easier for you on all fronts soon. Congrats on your bourbon score! Those are some lovely knives you’ve shown with it.
@Pàdruig, indeed! Looks like you’ve kicked off a weekend that you’ll enjoy.
That looks yummy, @zolthar. @tmd_87 certainly is an enthusiastic advocate of the style. I’ll admit to being swayed by his choices more than once.
Today though, it’s all English influence:
The senior member of my lambsfoot contingent welcomed the newest arrival over a pint of cask ale (*), this one featuring Mosaic hops rather than a traditional English variety. An enjoyable brew to be sure.
* – The growler was filled from the cask. I presume that still counts?
The manifest destiny of all of my Swiss Army knives.
A scene from earlier this week. I will probably recreate it in an hour or so.
I fly fish Oil Creek every spring when the Tan Caddis fly hatches occur. You can actually see oil slicks bubbling up from the water on the creek. Surprising that Trout can live so well in the water but they do! I use a Victorinox knife to clean the fish I keep (this are very few indeed because I'm a catch and release guy) for our fish fry. Say, do you know what the materials of construct for the Queen Drake Well knife are?
Ohhhhh sour pale ale..... Sounds good to me! What brewery?
English knife American beer in harmony
Interesting stuff. No I'm sorry I do not know the steel. I saw that you posed the question a day or two ago in a post but didn't respond because I couldn't answer it.
Make mine Lagavulin 16 year old. Mighty bold words from me considering my last name.
Beer and scotch go well together.
"One bourbon, one scotch, one beer."
Oersoep, a Dutch brewery that uses wild yeast in a lot of beers.
