Abc website?
Utah Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control website: https://abc.utah.gov

Inventory search: https://webapps2.abc.utah.gov/Productio ... Query.aspx


And yes, it looks like the only Strongbow anywhere in the state is the Dry. All other versions show "Discontinued." (Maybe you haven't been buying enough? :twisted: )

I guess you'll have to travel and see if Lee has any.

That's gotta be it. :lol:

I wish we could buy alcohol online if we live in Utah. I mean, I'd be willing to meet the delivery person at the door with I.D. We can order ecigarettes that way (I don't use them, but another adult member of my family does).

Call me cynical, but I highly doubt that online ethanol purchase will ever be legal in the Utah Theocracy.

Toasted Coconut Almond Bark flavored Black Tea

This is good stuff and has started to make a dent in my Coke Zero habit.
I've recently dived into tea and I've found I'm drinking less soda. Also less alcohol since instead of cracking open a beer to sip while playing a game or watching TV on my days off I'll brew some tea instead.

Saturday:

DW had a rough day at work, so we went to a local British pub. We both had a pint of Guinness with dinner. My first. I'm usually not a fan of dark beers, but I rather liked this.

Sunday morning at Cafe Zaphod was Boston Lattes. Lattes with honey.

Hey, what's the deal with pirates and rum?
Is rum the reason there are no specific pirate missions?
If so, why do they still find their way into multi-level marketing ventures?
Good faith does not require evidence, but it also does not turn a blind eye to that evidence. Otherwise, it becomes misplaced faith.

Tieton Cranberry cider. Best fetching cider I've tasted. Not cheap and not sure it's available beyond the pacific NW. I have yet to try their other flavors.

I think it's about where pirates haunt and sugar grows?

Yummy.

Cranberry wine is popular in my area this time of year, I haven't tried it yet.

Looks like it is available beyond the PNW, but... at ~$1.00 to ~$2.00 per ounce? Yeah, VERY expensive. (At least under the reign of the Theocracy.)

A chance for Utah bourbon drinkers to enter a drawing for a bottle of Pappy Van Winkel's Bourbon.

I'm going to be sipping tea all day long while I try out my new mini teapot. It's only 165 ml if you fill it to the brim (more accurate capacity is more like 150 ml). My wife might joke about a grown man having his own tea party with a mini-teapot but you know what? I'm secure in my masculinity thank you very much and it's a perfect decompression ritual for me I find.

It sounds delightful. I have a French press that I use to make my coffee with at work -- it sparks conversation and a bit of ribbing about my "fancy coffee", but I just respond that I prefer my coffee the way I make it and that I enjoy the ritual of making it every morning.

Yep, preparation rituals are definitely part of the experience. Even if a Mr. Coffee made coffee that tasted the same as a French Press (it doesn't, but lets pretend), I can totally understand preferring the French Press because of the ritual. I think the thing is, particularly with coffee, while there is a bit of a upsurge in not just dumping Folgers into a Mr. Coffee, for a lot of people coffee is simply a caffeine delivery mechanism. So they see methods of preparation that require more effort in terms of, "Why do more work for the same caffeine?"

Strange. They work in incognito mode just fine for me. Maybe an image link instead of just a standard hyperlink will work?

P.S. If this still doesn't work for you I'll try doing them as attachments.
