Too bad the gnome on the glass isn't riding a unicycle! I would absolutely buy some if he were.

Love it! I just checked my regular beer stop's website and it shows Houblon Chouffe IPA in stock locally but no Chouffe Blonde to be found anywhere. The gnome isn't unicycling on the Houblon label either but at 9% ABV I wouldn't risk it myself.

Based in San Francisco so it should be a layup for you. Most grocery stores have it here, way across the continent.

And I've had one now and I enjoyed it a lot. It's a different experience, closer to lemonade than beer, not really one or the other, but refreshing. I can see why it's associated with summer cycling.

I guess you would have to kick the soccer ball riding one-footed.

Got any of that spare?

On an unrelated note, I've got one of those keyboards (used to have three).
Mine's Compaq branded with Cherry branding on the bottom and MX browns. It has a lovely feel, and although no longer my favourite, it gets plenty of use due to the useful addition of the trackball.

Yeah about 20 pints left, it's not the best brew though. It was an experiment with a shedload of half-rotten bananas, so while it smells like bananabread it tastes like slightly sweetened bitter! If you're racing on Sunday let me know and I'll bring a couple I'll warn you that it's about 8% though so if you're riding home maybe give it a miss.

Yep the keyboard is a Compax MX11800 - I got it from an old shutting-down server farm of some kind, it came with the rack drawer and a couple of decades worth of crud under the keys. It was my intro to the marvelous world of mechanical keyboards and I love it! There's no Superkey but thankfully some of us aren't limited to the shite Microsoft put out so that's easy enough to work around (Who needs a Caps lock anyway)

I'm always up for trying things, but are you not riding there as well?
If you've not seen my post on FB, I will be there but unlikely to be in a racing/riding state. Pretty bummed out about the whole thing but I'm not going to miss the event!

Sounds exactly the same as mine, although I was lucky that they came out of the cabinets basically as new - nobody wanted to stay in the server rooms long enough to be able to get them dirty, and food was of course forbidden.

That's unfortunate Hope you get better soon!

One will probably be fine but anymore and I'll have to consider walking home

To be fair after a deep cleanse mine pretty much looked new - there was just enough dust to make a wig for the cat. After yanking all the keys off it was like looking at a carpet!

He's back

That unicyclist is back on Google Doodle. He's the goalie for Denmark!

From the Artist:

"Denmark – Rune Fisker

Q: What do you hope people take away from your Doodle?
A: The joy and extiment that we Danes feel for football (and our bikes!)."

Was at the local market in my parents' small town. Micro-breweries are popping up like mushrooms after the rain... there's a new one in the next town, and it's pretty cool looking!

Looks like he's walking on a rope whilst carrying his unicycle.

Which is probably safer after having had a couple of beers.
