Beer Of The Week - Budweiser 1933 Repeal Reserve Amber Lager


Looking for a new beer to enjoy this holiday season? Celebrate the repeal of Prohibition with the limited edition Budweiser 1933 Repeal Reserve Amber Lager!


When I first heard about this new Budweiser release I didn't know what to expect. It's been widely reported that beer trends have been changing and AB-InBev has been looking for something to help regain it's once tight grip on the domestic beer market. Is this beer just a gimmick or is it actually good?



First of all I have to give them credit with the vintage stubby bottles. The throwback bottles are always a favorite of mine and they do a great job representing the classic Budweiser look and feel. The 1933 Repeal and Reserve Amber Lager comes in at 6.1% compared to the 5% of a classic Budweiser, so it's packing just a bit more of a punch.



The taste is nothing to write home about, but it's still an enjoyable beer in my book. It's a smooth amber lager that can get you a nice buzz going. A fine choice to enjoy before you prepare to enjoy some turkey this Thanksgiving.



With the holiday season in full swing, I am happy to announce my partnership with TeePublic and the new Bumming with Bobcat Merch Store! Check out the store for some great deals on classic bWb shirt designs and $14 T-Shirts along with designs from the TeePublic community!



Are koozies more your thing? Looking to order some bWb brown bag specials or a set of bWb brown bag koozies for that special someone this holiday season? Head to shop.bumwinebob.com and order a set of bWb brown bag specials for only $10 $8 with some special early Black Friday pricing!

Rock Down to MD 20/20 Electric Melon Avenue


We're gonna grab a bottle of MD 20/20 and rock down to Electric Melon Avenue then we'll take it higher! To celebrate MD 20/20 Electric Melon as the bWb bum wine of the week I was recently a guest on Uncle (the podcast) where we cracked open a bottle for a live taste test! How does Electric Melon compare to the other flavors in the MD 20/20 world?



We are also recapping some of the prior features of the week with Not Your Father's Mountain Ale and the Lakefront Brewery Box Of Beer Trifecta! As a special treat I am also giving everyone a sneak peek into what you can expect at bumwinebob.com over the next few weeks as an early holiday treat.

The Krude Experience - Friend


Friend

It always humors me to be addressed as 'Dear Friend' in a chain letter or email from a complete stranger. Or to be called 'friend' from a local hot dog slinger who doesn't even know my name. The humor in all this turns into the creeps if the friendly behavior continues indefinitely.


I don't consider anybody to be my friend unless I've met you in person. Emails,tweets,texts etc... don't count in my book unless I meet you in the now. Let me look you in the eye. And be able to break bread with you. Or have a few drinks. It saddens me to hear that former lovers can't communicate with each other like adults and be friends without benefits. The human condition in 2018 will be a test for the strong. And a bitch for the weak. True friends will be in high demand. And very needed.

I remember about 20 years ago I worked with a guy who liked to talk politics with me. Bill Clinton was president and Ken Starr was doing his worst to impeach Clinton because Slick Willie lied about having sex in the White House with an intern. My co worker was so incensed about Clinton lying that he started watching Fox News and subscribed to an Oliver North snail mail newsletter,as a way to cope.When the co worker (note I don't say 'friend') showed me his most recent Oliver North newsletter,I had to read it top to bottom. And of course,it started with Dear Friends. I didn't know North had any friends left in the USA after the Iran Contra scandal.

Be wary of all of the walking,talking snakes and lizards of the world. People will quickly turn into 'non friends' over usually just money. Fucking your friends old lady could possibly end a friendship. But $ is the usual culprit of social conflict.

I received a strange phone call the other day. Caller ID was very helpful in my decision to answer the call. Just look at the name.


I'm sure Scam Likely most likely wanted to be my friend. I refused the call. Life goes on...

Peace is a dirty word

Bum Wine Of The Week - MD 20/20 Electric Melon


Are you looking for an electrifying and tangy treat? Look no further than MD 20/20 Electric Melon!


MD 20/20 Electric Melon has always been the bum wine that got away. It was during my trip to Las Vegas in 2015 after doing some searching, it was not until the morning that we were leaving that I finally spotted some MD 20/20 in one of the liquor stores. Due to time constraints I did not pick up a bottle since I figured I would come across it again. Fast forward two years later and during my trip to Ocean City, Maryland I spotted it on the shelf once again and I knew I would not make the same mistake this time around.


I was saving this bum wine for a taste test on this years Bumming with Bobcat Halloween podcast, but things did not go as planned and we had to wait a little longer to twist off that cap. The stars aligned this past week when I was contacted by Aaron from Uncle (the podcast) to be a guest on their show to do a special bum wine review. I spoke with Aaron beforehand and told him the bum wines I had on hand so he could pick up a bottle for them to enjoy as well. Luckily for us he was able to grab a bottle of MD 20/20 Electric Melon to crack open for a live taste test on their podcast!

Listen here or click the play button below!



While I don't know how "electric" it might be, it does look and taste similar to a pink lemonade with a shot of watermelon. It goes down smooth and doesn't have a bad or lingering aftertaste. During my time on Uncle (the podcast) I drank about half a bottle. Like most other flavors of MD 20/20 it comes in at 13% and is best served chilled. I hope to find it in my travels once again and I would rank it high on the MD 20/20 flavor list. If you haven't has a chance to try MD 20/20 Electric Melon yourself, be sure to pick up a bottle the next time you see it in the liquor store and tell the clerk it's the bumwinebob.com bum wine of the week!

The Krude Experience - Comped


Comped

Consider this week's Krude Experience blog as a mental comp.Or a subliminal freebie.Either way, Krude will be acting as the pit boss in a sharing mood.No condom or exchange of commonplace pleasantries needed. But always have each of one on the ready. Take notice...


I never paid to get into Yankee Stadium until 2008.And will never pay again to get in to see the Bombers. Better to have inside contacts and corporate connections to score overpriced baseball tickets. MLB is already in on the take.So who really gives a shit.

I had a friend who worked for 92.3 fm in NYC and put me on the guest list for many gigs back in the day.Did I really need free tickets to see Whitesnake at Jones Beach or Nirvana at Marquee NYC? Answer is no. But I went to both. Remember kids:

Steve Vai = Good
Kurt Cobain = Not so good

Comp hotel rooms at Atlantic City and Las Vegas casinos always cost $. It's the money you lose (that the casino rates) that pays for the room. Plus,local taxes must be paid. So even if you score weekend comps in AC,$ is coming out of your pocket. Still,I love hitting a casino. That never gets old.

Buybacks at your favorite bar are becoming more of memory than a reality. Well,that's in my neck of the woods. A few bartenders know the value of a regular drunkard.But for the most part,it's cash on the barrel head for all your served hooch. Damn.

Once. And only once did I drive over the George Washington Bridge in Fort Lee,NJ without paying a toll. Not that I blew through the toll gate without paying. But I found an open gate on a local street that service trucks and Port Authority police use to gain access to the GWB. I drove up slowly,merged with traffic,and drove over the Hudson River without paying. That was in 1988. The toll back then was $2. Now it is $15. And if I was caught these days trying the same stunt,I would definitely be put on a terrorist/no fly list for my entire life. Welcome to 2017.

Nobody rides for free. That is a given. But catching a few breaks here and there never hurt anybody.And how much did YOU pay to read this blog on this website? Mahalo.

Be an average human being on your worst days
