The Beer Bill :: SB 1030

From the "Support-Your-Local-Brewery" Department

I learned of this issue two years ago. But my local watering hole is throwing their hat into a political fight.

For those of you who came in late…

Arizona has a draconian law which regulates microbreweries. It caps the amount of beer they can make and still hold a retail license to sell their own product. Point is, if you make too much, you can no longer sell it and have to work through a distribution system only. The nomenclature is a “Brewer’s License” vs. a “Producer License”.
The Cause an Effect: If a brewery does “too good” it has to eliminate its service staff, instead of grow it.

Now, I’m a patron of Thunder Canyon Brewery here in the Jeremy-Gilby-dot-com vicinity. I’m very familiar with Steve, the owner, and found out he was on the local news yesterday.

Here is the clip:

So once again, it was the Nameless County Not so County, I don’t know what County Employee’s Birthday. And her housemate “Bear” reached out to me to make a Jeremy-Gilby-dot-com-style punch for the occasion. (Knowing that Jeremy-Gilby-dot-com means very adult.)

You may remember a previous Jeremy-Gilby-dot-com-Test-Bar concoction for a previous birthday party: The Not-so-innocent-Blonde-Punch.

Given this is the last moment of 2014, so I should probably post something about it.

Jeremy’s Test Bar :: The Zombie

From the "If-the-Zombie-Apocalypse-comes, I'm-Joining-the-Zombies, Just-F-Y-I" Department

I have recently become a semi-fan of The Walking Dead and to celebrate the Season 5 Premier, the Jeremy-Gilby-dot-com Vicinity delved into the cocktail of the “Zombie“.

I had attempted to make this tasty-adult-beverage before, and to put a lesser word, disgusted it.

So, in an attempt to survive all Mayan Zombie Apocalypse(s) everywhere, Jeremy’s Test Bar went into action!

The NFL is getting Spanked

Filed under: Football,Rants @ 10:57:59 PM
From the "Painful-to-Watch" Department

There, I said it.

It is hard to watch any NFL game these days when the headlines behind a very well crafted game is Ray Peterson Spanking Domestic Violence with Roger Goodell looking on.

I was amused by this tweet last week:


I have talked with several of my co-working Dallas Cowboys NFL fans and we have come to the same conclusion. The NFL isn’t fun this year.

The BOOM FIREWORKS Red Punch

From the "Just-Don't-Name-it-after-Tony-Stewart" Department

You may remember, several years ago, I was tasked with producing a punch for The Nameless County Employee’s birthday/Faux-Prom night.

Anyways, the Usual Suspects approached me again for another Punch undertaking for “Nascar”‘s Birthday.

It was a pool party, so I knew I wanted something more than just Rum and Fruit Juice (though there is nothing wrong with that). So I want the wine/champagne route.

I found the following Recipe online, and adapted it enough to call it my own:
