Our 28th anniversary dinner was held at Sakura Japanese Restaurant and Sushi Bar in Cedar Falls.

Sapporo is a lager with good, modest flavor that doesn't overpower the seafood it's paired with.

Dan's Pink Skirt

This American IPA has a very fresh hop flavor with refreshing lemony and citrus notes. the label with some old guy in a tutu is an inside joke that we don't get.

'Tis the season to leave my car unlocked, because sometimes friends just drop off presents for me when I park on the street. Today I a found a bag with Celebrator in it. I'm saving it for just the right Christmas moment, because for now I have this full-flavored coffee stout to enjoy. The bitter coffee, bitter chocolate boldly stand up to the dark malt of this stout.

Dogfish Head Immort Ale

This is a very nice barley wine. But I've seen better. It seems Dogfish does IPAs well and if you get a chance you should drink those. Other brewers can have the barley wine market share.
