Beer Of The Week - Lakefront Brewery Organic White Ale

The next stop on the Lakefront Brewery BOX OF BEER tour is their Organic White Ale, now known as Organika.

The Organic White Ale comes in at 4.6% ABV and is very crisp and refreshing.

"In 1996, we made the first certified-organic beer. We're not visionaries, or anything, we just thought the farmers growing barley and hops without synthetic chemicals and pesticides were putting in hard, honest work and deserved the business. We're proud of that decision. So proud that we laid our cards on the table and called this white ale “Organika”. Fruit and spice aromas from organic coriander and orange peel give it character, while malt and wheat give it the backbone to say, “Organic!” loud and proud." - lakefrontbrewery.com

What will be next from the BOX OF BEER? Stay tuned to bumwinebob.com and find out!

***Order your bWb brown bag specials or a set of bWb brown bag koozies at shop.bumwinebob.com and keep your drinks cool this summer while looking stylish!***

The Krude Experience - Elder Statesman

Elder Statesman

I never thought I would live to see the day when I would become an elder statesman of anything. Living for 47 years and nearly dying a few times along the way kinda makes me an elder statesman by default. I just keep on living and never look back.

What got Krude on this train of thought was through having a conversation with a old friend of mine who was born the week before me in 1970. He is the recent recipient of a partial liver transplant (thanks to his awesome donor cousin) and a huge pro wrestling fan. He often goes to Facebook (being on disability is pretty boring) and has conversations with younger,less knowledgeable wrestling fans. And then vents to me about their ignorance toward obvious shortcomings with the current major market wrestling product. And I chime in and explain that not everybody got to witness Hulk Hogan pin Iron Sheik at MSG 1/23/1984 in person (he did). Or get to own an AWA toy wrestling ring. Or witness each and every WrestleMania since it's inception in 1985 (we both have). And that makes us elder statesman to the younger generation of wrestling fans,whether we like it or not.

Watching younger booze drinkers is often an amusing thing for Krude. The 25 and under crowd sticking tight to beer and beer only is kinda cute. My old ass always goes for whiskey. But even when I was younger, I would only order beer at a bar if I was cash strapped. I guess growing up around bars (my father owned) did rub off on me. Beer ain't drinking, some might say.

Being able to have conversations with just about anybody about sports related topics is cool. I still follow most sports action and my memory from my early years is still intact. Evel Knievel on Wide World of Sports in the 70's is often a topic guys like me could talk about with people older than me. Then to talk about current sports trends like UFC with the younger crowd. It's all good.

My son calls most of the music I listen to 'old guy music'. He is 19 and likes metal music to its most evil core. Though some of the bands he likes started in the 80's. But he marvels in jealousy when I mention seeing Testament or Kreator over 25 years ago. Father knows best.

I've just always learned from my elders. Listened to everybody. And tried to be as grounded as possible. Nobody is above anybody else.

The Krude Experience - Those Other Guns

Those Other Guns

Since the 1980's are such a fascinating time for people who weren't born or too young to remember, Krude wants to put his spin on a 1980's band that deserves more credit than they've gotten over the years. I give you L.A.Guns

Los Angeles was easily rock n' roll central in the 1980's. Most of the music that was made famous by talented artists was born in the City of Angels. All kinds of different styled musicians caught the ultra creative buzz in LA and had enough natural stage presence and charm to score a major record deal.

Enter Tracii Guns into this musical mix.

Tracii started his musical journey in LA in the late 70's as a teenager. He honed his guitar playing chops in the clubs and became a sought after musician by the mid 80's. He met a man named Bill Bailey around that time and formed a band called Guns N' Roses. After Axl Rose (Bailey) pulled his now usual inter band power plays,Tracii split the group and quickly formed L.A. Guns. Glad he did.

I first heard L.A.Guns in 1988,in the middle of Guns N' Roses historic ride to the top of the rock heap. I quickly dismissed LA Guns as a record company influenced rip off of GNR. But as I got to hear the rest of the debut LAG album,my initial scorn to turned to fandom. This album rocked. Hard. It's punky,street level rock with tons of heart and talent. The songs still sound great blasting out of my car.

The band had some commercial success in the late 80's to early 90's. I saw them in 1991 at the Limelight NYC during their Hollywood Vampires tour. I could kind of tell that night that the band was wearing thin and their style of rock was being phased out. It was time for the Grunge rock takeover of the early 90's.And L.A. Guns have never been quite the same. Tons of band members would come and go. And the albums weren't very good.

Fast forward to 2002. The world has changed due to 9/11/01. But L.A.Guns somehow manage to release an all time classic cd called Waking The Dead. Tracii Guns and singer Phil Lewis wrote one hell of an album. Things were looking good for them. But more band members (Tracii Guns) leave the band and it's back to mediocrity with L.A.Guns for the next 14 years.

It's 2017,and Tracii Guns and Phil Lewis are back together making new music with L.A.Guns. And the lead track on their upcoming album The Missing Peace is called Speed. And it rips skulls. Rock N' Roll it is. Done right. By men who live and breathe it. Amen.

A little speed will make ya want a little more
