Birds, bees and beer

Spring seasonals are coming out fast and furious.

Ska Brewing will release its Mexican Logger on Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Ska HQ in Bodo. Pints of the beer will be $3 and Zia Taqueria will have $2 tacos.

Have several Loggers, then go see Ward Churchill. It should be an interesting time.

Soggy Coaster thoroughly enjoys Mexican Logger. It's as if Corona made a good beer.

Seriously, why would anybody buy Corona when Mexican Logger is available? Given importation costs, the beers are very comparably priced. Mexican Logger (4.2 percent ABV, 18 IBUs) happens to be much fuller-bodied, tastier and, um, good. I doubt Corona has Saaz hops. Nevertheless, Corona remains the no. 1 import beer in America.

Mexican Logger is a great session beer for summer barbecues.

Unfortunately, spring also means that a Northern Flicker woodpecker has been pounding away at Soggy Coaster's metal roof every morning. I'll need some Mexican Logger to deal with that.

(Update: I should have mentioned that Carver Brewing has its new Spring Tonic Elixir on tap, brewed from a Prohibition-era recipe. Monkey Wrenched IPA is also newly on tap. The imperial stout has returned).


  1. Great. Just great. Soggy get to Denver and do a baseball beer write up. Ward Churchill is so 2004.

  2. I hate those flying pecker birds as I've had one who has flown back to my house year after year and ratta-tat-tat on my metal chimney top right outside my bedroom. It's usually very early in the morning too so I never get to sleep in. One of these days I'm going to have to get rid of it once and for all but in a humane way.
