I am a co-founder and the editor of drinkfive.com. In order to stave off fantasy football insanity, Dave and I have branched out to cover a variety of interests. When I'm not knee deep in wikipedia pages, I like to hang out at breweries or a disc golf course (especially both in the same day). FSWA Member for 5+ years.
JuKebox Hero is a new Black India Pale Ale from Revolution Brewing out of Chicago. You can only get it in bombers, but that's ok, it's the perfect size to settle down with and enjoy a podcast. This week, Dave and I split one during our show.
This is one of the better Black IPA's I've had the pleasure of drinking lately. In looking at reviews online, it didn't seem to blow people's socks off like it did mine. It's not as thick as other Black IPA's, and it's generally more hoppy, which I really like. Maybe this isn't a to the book version of this type of beer, but it's a great mixture of some heavy, delicious malts against the strong fruity hops.
Check this out if you see it in the store and you are a hop head of any kind. It's 7.5% and not too heavy, so it's a great session beer to go along with a sixer of A Little Crazy, their Belgian-style Pale Ale.
This week on the show we celebrate the steak that is known as flank. We dug some underground veggies and of course, enjoyed a few beers and talked football. We caught up on the latest free agency moves and decided that Chris Johnson will probably end up on the Jets, if only because nobody else seems to want him.
We discussed the season premiere of Game of Thrones, which made both of these book readers quite happy. The war is over and we discuss what's going on now in Westeros and what we liked about the episode. For more on the episode, check out my review of episode one here on drinkfive.com.
We finish off the episode talking about possible sleepers for next year. We go through the RB's and WR's, but didn't go too in depth. Look for something later in the week from Dave to go much further down the sleeper rabbit hole that will soon be the 2014 Fantasy Draft season.
