    Drew Estate Undercrown and NC cigars (in general)

    Watch the guys from Friends of Habano review the Drew Estate Undercrown.  If you don't know these guys, they do fantastic reviews.  This is an interesting take on a NC cigar from guys who almost exclusively smoke Cubans, and parts of it are hilarious.  It got me thinking of so many NC cigars I...

    Traveling to the Dominican Republic?

    The wife and I just got back from Punta Cana.  Fantastic beaches and a great time all in all.  I did not, however, follow the advice of many.  I only brought 4 cigars.  I don't have a big humidor anymore, hardly have one at all actually, and I simply didn't get around to stocking up.  So, I...

    So, John and I had a friendly Super Bowl bet in which I made him promise to abide by the conditions. He did so. Then six weeks later he bombed the sh.t out of me. This dude is top notch man. That's all I'm saying. Thanks bro, great timing too, as a couple friends will be around to sample...

    The Heavy

    Went and saw this band last Friday night. Real good show. Much better live than recorded. If any of you guys dig what you've heard of them, I highly recommend checking them out. Take the wife/gf; or don't, as the crowd was mainly female. :thumbs:

    Finally, my addiction to IPAs is weaning off and while I still love them, I have begun to enjoy sipping a good stout. For the longest time, I found my desire for stouts to be limited to Founders Breakfast Stout and a couple others. Recently though, a good selection of stouts have come onto the...

    I doubt many people know this, but one of the MN crew, simmsboard (Joe) went in for double-bypass surgery on Monday. It actually ended up being a triple bypass. I just got off the phone with him and he sounded pretty good. He's currently doing physical therapy 4 times a day to get his legs...

    Autumn Beer Review - Minneapolis, Mn

    This event was so spectacular, I had to take a moment to share. For starters, Minnesota has two notable beer events: Autumn Beer Review and Winter Beer Fest. I've now attended one of each and can say that I will be attending both religiously from here on out, or for at least as long as God...

    Surly Hell

    From the can: Finally, a Surly beer my German mother will drink! She says this one tastes like a bier from back home. Not unlike a Zwickel Bier from Germany, Hell is not filtered and fermented with lager yeast. American hops take a back seat to the Pils malt sweetness and fresh bread aroma...

    Pepper Beers

    The wife and I are in love with Route Des Epices. Expensive though. Very expensive. Furthermore Knot Stock is pretty good, but it's not as hot. If any of you have any experiences with these beers, let me know. I'd like to chase after a few more.

    Happy Earth Day

    Might be cool to share some photos, whatever inspires folks. I know there are some pretty decent photographers here. I'm not really one of them. Here's a snap from Siwa, Egypt. This is one of two large oasis' within the country.

    Palm Springs, CA

    Fellas, I'm gonna be working in Palm Springs between Dec 10 - 13. The 11th and 12th are for smoking. Any CPers from this area? I have a few questions. 1. Where can a group of drinking folk go for good beer/food/entertainment? A one-stop kinda thing would be good, with the priorities being...
