    I dislike lagunitas

    Pete, if you're around, can you re-recommend those 3rd-party pilsners that you recommended a long while back? alternatives to budvar/ pilsner urquell?

    I ended up buying this Listerine "pre-brush" whitening rinse instead of the Zoom whitening. We'll see how it works out.
    I'm not a fan of the paper clip-style zips on my W+H tiger fleece hoodie. The riri zips on an older model I have are way better, much easier to zip.
    I like the lower-gravity offerings from Lagunitas, but their higher ABV stuff (e.g., Brown Shugga, Little Sumpin' Sumpin') are way too sweet for my taste.

    Mama's Li'l Yella Pils from Oscar Blues (same guys who make Dale's Pale Ale) isn't bad, although again, a little on the sweet side. It comes in cans, which is a nice bonus. I'm a big fan of Victory Prima Pils, which is on the hoppier side, but they're a PA brewery and I don't know how far west they distribute. North Coast Scrimshaw Pils isn't anything amazing, but it's a step up from the adjunct-laden stuff you listed (lightened with rice and/or corn, as opposed to brewing with malted grains alone).

    No experience, sorry.

    I noticed many mid-level Japanese designers moving production to China over the past few years. I don't think it's indicative of a quality shift, though.

    Bought Gyakusou Shirts yesterday for 10k Today.
    Ran 36:22 for third place and won a 50$ gift card to Dicks Sporting Goods. I need new socks.
    Gyakusou stuff held up to the rainy conditions great. It can be used for its slated purpose. Hopefully can find a fit pic.

    ^ nice kops
    gyakusou stuff is so great, so well-designed and really not that much more expensive than regular tech stuff, especially worth investing if you run outside a lot.


    got these sidezips, thanks sf for enabling :alien:

    also these sneakers, got them a while ago but apparently they and the sidezips both belong to mmm's 'shaded' bullshit theme this season

    Those are great, the best MMM side zip shape. I really wanted the dark brown ones but 42 is sold out everywhere, I need a brown pair of boots! Great purchase.

    Pretty sure what I had was a lagunitas ipa, the waiter kind of botched shit up but I've not had any of their offerings before and this was excellent. There was a bit of honey and fruitiness which cut the bitterness that I dislike about most IPAs.

    Nice cop g, I will probably get a few more things and custom my new id frees to go with this shit so I can swag on everyone at the gym who keeps jockin my style.

    I tried doing a nike ID lunarglide to match but I couldn't get any good colors...just went with generic black with white swoosh. Looks good enough for me.
