Yakima Fresh is a small batch, once-a-year beer that we have just released in bottles! It is our annual wet-hopped American IPA features hops that were shipped directly from the farm to our brewery and used within 24 hours after being picked in the field. This year’s batch (2016) was brewed with fresh Mosaic® hops from B.T. Loftus Ranches in Yakima, WA.
Recently went back to Green Lawn Cemetery.
Recently bought a book from McFarland Publishing.
He does have a famous great great grandson by the name of Roderick Toombs.
Who's that you ask?

Bodhi was finally released in bottles back in July of 2016.
I finally found 4 packs at Savor Pint the other day. $9.99 for the 4 pack.
Have found single bottles at Savor Pint. As soon as they got it in, it almost sold out just as quick. Places that I heard had 4 packs almost always were on the opposite side of town. I'm not the type that will completely go out of my way to get a beer. Won't wait for hours in line for a beer either. I love beer, but not enough to waste time over it.
Pabst Blue Ribbon is one of those things that is a waste of time.
Much like listening to Pantera.
This is the only Pantera that matters.
Typical PBR swillers date for the night.
Hell, PBR drinkers get confused by glasses of beer.
PBR leads to becoming a hipster.
Just thinking about PBR and Hipsters makes me want to throw up.
PBR drinkers also try to keep up with the times.
Like listening to Lil Wayne.
Lil Wayne on this blog?
I suddenly feel sick.
Have been listening to a couple new music purchases.
Etta James - Rocks The House
And since it is that time of the year - Halloween Nuggets: Monster Sixties A Go-Go
Halloween Nuggets reminds me of some of the best box sets that have been released. All of the following have been released by Rhino.
Nuggets. Rhino expanded the original 2 LP set to 4 CDs of music. The original 2 LPS are the first CD. Rhino added 3 more discs of music.
Nuggets 2. Rhino issued this one for bands and artists outside of the United States.
Love is the song we sing: San Francisco Nuggets
Where the Action Is: Los Angeles Nuggets.
The only box set not pictured is Children Of Nuggets.
Have bought a couple books as well.
Images of America - The Ohio State Reformatory. About the prison that is located in Mansfield, Ohio. It was closed in 1990, but was used in the movie the Shawshank Redemption.
The Lake View Cemetery. A book about the cemetery in Cleveland, Ohio.
Any beer geek in Columbus has pretty much wanted Bodhi to be released in some sort of packaging. For the longest time, it was draft only. That was great and all, but there were times I didn't want to go out somewhere to drink a beer. Just wanted to drink at home.
Have recently been back to Green Lawn Cemetery.
Charles Walcutt. A civil war general. He is related to someone buried in Texas. San Antonio to be a bit more specific.
Another relative buried nearby Charles Walcutt should be a clue to the more famous relative in Texas.
Alice Vickers Hann has a couple somewhat offensive symbols on her marker compared to todays standards. At the time, the symbols didn't have the meaning they have now.
Stanislas Roy. A Medal of Honor recipient for actions at the Battle of Little Bighorn.
Probably the most well known Medal of Honor recipient at Green Lawn is Eddie Rickenbacker.
I have been searching for Bodhi in bottles since it was released. Of course I haven't been looking that hard. Been looking at Kroger, Giant Eagle and Savor Pint. For me, it isn't worth going to another part of town just for a beer.
Do like the colors on the label. But like the rest of Columbus Brewing Company's other beers, I don't think it is eye catching enough. It is a shame though. Do think Columbus Brewing produces beers that are worth drinking.
Look at the head on the beer. LOOK AT IT!!! Isn't that a thing of beauty? Yes, yes it is. Plenty of citrus in the aroma. Some pine as well. Overall, one of the best smelling beers there is. Lacing is amongst the best there is.
Taste is something to behold. Citrus notes includes grapefruit and orange. Who doesn't like grapefruit in a IPA? PBR drinkers. Plenty of pine as well. For me, malt wasn't an issue. Bodhi has an IBU of 80 which means it gives the beer some flavor. Citrus and pine certainly make the beer. Bodhi is worth seeking out. Rated it 4.75 out of 5 on Untappd. I consider that rating rather low. Would classify Bodhi as a perfect beer.
