What are you drinking?

No you have to go out in the yard and pump the handle.

Hofbrau has arrived in NZ relatively intact. It's a lovely beer.

Heineken really is in a race to the bottom. For a period circa 2011 to 2013 it was a half decent beer in NZ. Now it's the revolting musty/stale malt flavour horror that most contract brewed garbage euro lagers are.

The stuff you get in the Netherlands isn't something I'd choose to drink, but it's at least inoffensive. The locally brewed stuff in NZ used to be too. Now you need to chill it in the freezer to make it tolerable.

I'm not really sure that Bruery Terreux's Tart of Darkness is signifgantly better than Anchorage Brewing's Anadromous, and I'm fairly sure it's not worth the $30/bottle I've paid for it but it is damn tasty.

Finally finished the bottle of delicious Stranahan's. I don't know if it's worth $60 a bottle, but it is excellent booze.

Opened a bottle of Old Fitzgerald (Heaven Hill) Larceny. No age statement. It's a hotter, less smooth version of Eagle Rare 10. At $22-25 in most places, it's great for the money, but it doesn't measure up to Eagle Rare.

As a gift I received a bottle of Idiom Zinfandel (2012), transported from SA by my sister on a recent trip. This is one funky wine. The aroma starts off as black cherry and then morphs into a herbal/floral thing. Think running your hand over oregano in bloom and huffing it. I'm guessing this is the "aroma of fynbos" indicated on the label. The taste is also funky. Yeah, it's an oaked zin but there are some medicinal notes, in a good way. Some resin, some slight anise. Me likey.

Haven't had SA zin before. I like SA cab quite a bit but hate pinotage.

The in-house counsel (the red wine drinker) is very fond of a California zin called Predator. I dunno, but she's contemplated seriously getting a case of it to keep around.

My preferred zins are Ridge, 4 Vines Maverick, and as of last trip also Acorn. I used to do the Orin Swift bottles like Prisoner but after they sold to someone they got bigger and more alcoholic to the point i can't deal with them mostly. Feel that way about most of Napa proper for zin too.

I stopped at Total Wine yesterday, and bourbon mania has gotten so bad that Eagle Rare is now kept at the customer service counter and limited to one bottle per customer (like the two massively overpriced Canadian ryes they had from Whistle Pig and Lock Stock & Barrel). Fuckin hipsters have ruined everything.
