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

It'll always be Gordon to the BC4M

It was on one of the earliest BC4M meetings on record, a brown ale night dubbed "Squirrel Nut Sippers", which somehow devolved into a 24 beer all night stumble home drunk debacle typical of our earlier days, that we discovered a little "can'o bliss" from our buddies in Colorado, Oskar Blues. It was described by more than a few BC4M members that night as one of the smoothest beers they had ever tasted and when we aren't rating beers but are just hanging by the pool, or "making it rain" at the local mammary salon, you can bet your sweet ass and half a titty Gordon (8.7%) is at the top of the list for beers to relax with. The story of how they come up with an amazing beer for an amazing man, is right here. As it says on the back of the can, "If you knew Gordon Knight, this ale needs no explanation. If you didn't we're sorry". That sure as fuck says it all doesn't it? America is filled with everyday heroes like Gordon Knight, and it continues to be an honor for the BC4M to drink his namesake beer. Earlier this year, Fred stumbled across a news story that said industry giant Gordon Biersch had sent Oskar Blues a cease and desist letter saying they couldn't use the name Gordon anymore. Now we realize that when the average beer geek sees the name Gordon, they instantly think of Gordon Biersch right? Hell the fuck no they don't, cause there ain't a single fucking beer that Gordon B makes that is even remotely in the same zip code as Oskar Blues (apologies to our associate member Big Audio Dynamite, who is a stein club member in good standing at the local GB and truly loves their Hefeweizen). Mistaking Gordon for something Gordon Biersch makes is the same as mistaking a Quarter Pounder with cheese for Filet Mignon. Does Pepsi sue Coke because they both use the word Cola on their packaging? Of course the fuck not, and although we realize that this is probably an idea that sprang from some nameless corporate board whose only purpose is to squeeze every beat of creativity out of the craft beer industry and who probably couldn't tell you the difference between an oatmeal raisin cookie and a fudge brownie we still think it's fucking bullshit and a disgrace to a legendary man and GABF brewing champion. Gordon Biersch used to be one of the BC4M favorites until this douchebag decision was made, and in fact one time we even had a sweet behind the scenes tour of the local GB thanks to the great guys that manage the restaurant.  Despite that, Fred has gone on record saying GB is no longer welcome at the Flintstone estate and he gladly donated his GB growlers to the local landfill to prevent them from ever being refilled again. The boys at Oskar Blues decided not to fight the uphill legal battle to keep the name since some inane copyright law and a bunch of ham fisted liberal turd burglers would probably side for the big boys in this one. They have since decided to rename the beer to G'Knight, but have thankfully kept the same color scheme on the can and the same Really Fucking Good beer inside. So tonight, I drink one final can of Gordon, and toast the legend himself with an early F.M. radio classic  and to a beer that will forever remain known to the BC4M as Gordon.........R.I.P. Gordon Knight,  "Big, Red, Sticky"

Well said! Gordon is one the greatest session beers, by one of America's best brewers. I like the staff at our local Gordon Biersch, but their corporate weenies were just plain wrong in this case. I am considering suing Gordon Biersch for false advertising. They should not be able to call that liquid stuff they pour into glasses "beer"!

First of all I want to say great blog! I had a quick question which I'd like to ask if you don't
mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing.
I have had trouble clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there.

I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just
seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are
wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin.
Any ideas or hints? Thank you!
