We are still alive!!! Despite a prolonged absence, we are alive and well. It takes a lot of work to keep our fans entertained, and to be honest, we are the laziest fuckers you will ever meet. That, and the fact that we have 3 members who are retarded and only 2 who are functionally literate, and you can see how this is such a chore. We are basically no smarter than a hoard of howler monkeys

On the Rogue Again ...

Note: some names have been changed to protect the guilty.

After a simple text in honor of one BC4M member's favorite German World Cup star "ze Meatstacker," Bartles implored James to join him on a quick drinking session before an out-of-town trek. The two converged at Gordon Biersch in Virginia Beach's Town Center area and chatted about CJ's, YJ's and TJ's (if you've got to ask, you can't afford it) and the possibility of the krazy italian-irish girl performing naked table dances at the Rusty Rudder over Marzen (5.6%) and Sommer Brau (5.0%), a Kolsch-style, light-bodied beer with citrus and coriander tones. Conversation then delved into the latest, Tolkien-esque BC4M blog posting and the contrary idea of James being loquacious, and Bartles then spoke of a new microbrew oasis in Virginia Beach: the Lynnhaven Pub. James, in disbelief as his memories of the "Pube" included clouds of smoke, waitresses on their way to the night shift at an Open House Diner down the road, stale Bud Light and even staler Miller Lite, reluctantly said to Bartles that the pub would soon be on the agenda for a visit.
Now you all know Bartles -- he doesn't know the meaning of a quick drinking session. And, 30 minutes after leaving for his prior engagement, was able to rearrange his schedule and work in an emergency exploratory excursion. First up for Bartles at the pub was a Stoudt's Double IPA (10%), a medium-bodied ale with a pleasant flowery aroma and crisp hop flavor, while James sampled a Full Sail Session Black Lager (5.4%), a light-bodied schwarzbier with muted coffee and caramel bitterness. After an interlude of George Foreman-grilled chicken nachos (some things never change) The next round included a Breckenridge Avalanche (5.41%), a very light amber ale that lacked any real punch, and Terrapin Rye Squared IPA (9.5%). Double the malt, double the hops equals double your pleasure and double your fun -- if you like the turtle's RyePA, B&J firmly suggest you try this delectable drink. One-time beer club attendee and notorious dirty pirate hooker Amberella the Red Bush notified Bartles of being available for bevvies for the first time in months, so the two tasted one last beer: Terrapin's Gamma Ray (11%), courtesy of new buddy Chuck, who first tried to buy B&J shots of tequila and then white russians -- that was before an interpreter stepped in and explained that Chuck was not inquiring about Bartles' shoe size. The Gamma is a wheatwine ale brewed with honey, though after the first sip you'd thought it was brewed with banana-flavored Now-and-Laters. James swore he would probably piss neon-yellow flourescent after that radioactive brew.
The duo jetted over to the 11th street Taphouse Bar and Grill and started with ever-faithfuls Brooklyn Brown Ale (5.5%) and the aforementioned Rye Pale Ale (5.3%) -- always solid beers. Amberella also joined in on the Brown upon arrival of the Richmond Pub Crawl reunion. Over the next selections of Blue Point Toasted Lager (5.3%) and Blueberry Ale (4.3), which were both tasted at the Richmond World Beer Festival, and Bluegrass Jefferson Reserve Stout (8.0%), a viscous stout with coffee sweetness and an alcohol bite from being bourbon-barrell aged [it's only after typing in all these ABV percentages I realize why everybody in the club gettin' tipsy], James discussed the idea that since BC4M meetings are clandestine and talked about after the fact, these rogue sessions would be ideal opportunities for instant gratification. Bartles shook his head in agreement, though that might have been because the Spicy Chipotle wings were a lot much hotter than anticipated.
So our rogue sessions are going live -- just go to and follow bc4mrogue, or just click on the link. You can get real-time updates on what the rogue duo B&J is drinking. Maybe even where. You can also post back and tell us what you're drinking. Maybe even where. You never know when we'll be out, but that next post just might inspire you to come out and crack open a beer.

I guess this is what happens when you go rogue. You start repeating ratings of beer. I could see it if they were RFG beer, but... Maybe these guys? should be brought before the kangaroo court og BC4M.
