It's an excellent brew from a grand Oregon brewery, one of my favorites!



Deserving the title "Emperor of Ales" (unlike the bourgeois "King of Beers"), Imperial is the strongest and fullest of all stouts. Imperials originally were brewed with large quantities of hops and a high alcohol content to withstand long, unrefrigerated journeys. Rogue Imperial Stout, considered the high end of stouts, is made of 2-row Great Western Harrington & Klages, Hugh Baird XLT-80, Black, Munich and Chocolate Malts; Willamette, Cascade and Chinook hops; rolled oats; and two secret ingredients. Unfiltered and unfined, Imperial Stout is best when aged for one year. Imperial Stout is available in a new 750-ml ceramic swing-top bottle (replacing the much older 7-ounce and more recent 12-ounce XS-line packaging) and on draft.

Measurements: 26 degrees Plato, IBU 88, Apparent Attenuation 73, Lovibond 256, 11% ABV.
No Chemicals, Additives, or Preservatives

That's me, no chemicals, additives or preservaties ... however, I resemble the "assinine" comment.

I've posted my confirmation during the Purple draft, and I'll officially do so here.

See you all on Wednesday!

Everyone has confirmed....Houston, we are go for liftoff.

Thank you all for participating in Champs this year. I'll be turning things over to John now, my job is done. Smile

As the Blues Brothers said:

It's 106 miles to Chicago; we have no freezes, a serpentine draft, it's dark and we're wearing sunglasses.......Hit it! Cool

Oh, and I guess I need a team name for my Champs team.


Hmmmm


Scammers Rammers just doesn't sound right....

Doug's Thugs sounds too...wrong.....

we'll go with Scammers Stags (since it was the Purple team that got me here)

You know, you could spell it 'asinine' just to be nice but nooooo, not you, Lydia. At least my team name is grammatically correct. I would sing this but I can't carry a tune ... or a piano for that matter ... to hear the original, go to http://www.barbneal.com/groucho.htm and listen to grouch62.wav:


Lydia, the Tattooed Lady:

My life was wrapped around the circus. Her name was Lydia.
I met her at the world's fair in 1900, marked down from
1940. Ah, Lydia.

She was the most glorious creature
Under the su-un.
Guiess. DuBarry. Garbo.
Rolled into one.

Oooooooh
Lydia oh Lydia, say have you met Lydia,
Lydia, the Tattooed Lady.
She has eyes that folks adore so,
And a torso even more so.

Lydia oh Lydia, that encyclopedia,
Oh Lydia the Queen of Tattoo.
On her back is the Battle of Waterloo.
Beside it the wreck of the Hespherous, too.
And proudly above waves the Red, White, and Blue,
You can learn a lot from Lydia.

La la la, la la la, la la la, la la la

When her robe is unfurled, she will show you the world,
If you step up and tell her where.
For a dime you can see Kankakee or Paris,
Or Washington crossing the Delaware.

La la la, la la la, la la la, la la la

Oh Lydia oh Lydia, say have you met Lydia,
Oh Lydia the Tattooed Lady
When her muscles start relaxing,
Up the hill comes Andrew Jackson

Lydia oh Lydia, that encyclopedia,
oh Lydia the queen of them all!
For two bits she will do a mazurka in jazz,
With a view of Niagara that nobody has.
And on a clear day you can see Alcatraz.
You can learn a lot from Lydia.

La la la, la la la, la la la, la la la

Come along and see Buff'lo Bill with his lasso.
Just a little classic by Mendel Picasso.
Here is Captain Spaulding exploring the Amazon.
Here's Godiva but with her pajamas on.

La la la, la la la, la la la, la la la

Here is Grover Whalen unveilin' the Trilon.
Over on the West Coast we have Treaure Island.
Here's Najinsky a-doin' the rumba.
Here's her social security numba.

(whistles)

Oh Lydia, oh Lydia that encyclopedia,
Oh Lydia the champ of them all.
She once swept an Admiral clear off his feet.
The ships on her hips made his heart skip a beat.
And now the old boy's in command of the fleet,
For he went and married Lydia.

I said Lydia (He said Lydia)
I said Lydia (We said Lydia)

La La!
