Front Porch Chats #15\Second Pint DVRC

Happy birthday, America. Breonna Taylor’s killers are still unaccountable for their actions.

Honestly, if America isn’t breaking your heart every damn day, then you probably ain’t Americaning right. It’s full of promises, America is, and we’s not done much to live up to them.

I’d accept well intentioned fucked ups by America, and I’d even be willing to live with errors via ignorance. Those things can be worked with.

But this country is over 200 years old and we damn well ought to know a few things.

For example; fascism is bad. Racists are cowards and should not be heard. Money hoarders should not override the needs of the people. Big banks, big tech and big media run roughshod over the rights of citizens and should be shattered like a glass you throw against a brick wall. People are people, regardless of race, creed, gender. No exceptions. Corporations are not people. I don’t want to have to fight a war to prove that one, but I wonder if we might.

Henhouse Juiced raspberry goseAnd share your beer with people. From a distance. There’s a pandemic on-not even our first, so we REALLY ought to know better-and things will be vastly improved if we respect our distances and share what we can. Be kind. Always lead with being kind. Plenty of time to be mean later.

So, this is a Juiced! Ale from Henhouse brewing-a gose with raspberry.

I’m of the opinion that gose should probably always be brewed with a tart fruit like this. Because what I really have here is raspberry beer. It’s tart, then sweet, then tart again and it smells and tastes like raspberries.

Personally, I’m in for that. I can see where other people might not be-this doesn’t really meet a lot of the traditional flavors for beer. However, neither do hazy IPAs and those are popular.

This is just straight up raspberries and alcohol. I like it.

Today’s second pint goes to the Domestic Violence Resource Center.
