Why does beer make me sleepy?

Beer might make me sleepy, but when it wears off I'm wide awake.

I believe they call that "attenuation". :)

Who knows - maybe the Germans will like the Belgo Anise IRS.

Open Air Fish Market (@ The Embarcadero) to Start August 2.

That's happened to me a few times too, Chow. Paranoia will destroy ya.

One thing you can do is check all your posts by going to your profile - much easier to find things that way. :)

Speaking of Bobby, has anybody gotten an update from him? It sounded like he was interested in opening a place closer to downtown.

I just drank a Lithuanian Quad brewed in Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Is Whisknladle becoming predictable, even a bit stagnant...?

I was going to make a general comment that if there is anything I've noticed about Whiskenladle (other than Honkman's observation), I've heard and seen widely variable reports - even over short periods of time. I've lucked out - the 3 times I've been there in the past 3 or so years have all been pretty good.

I'm not sure if the variability is who is working in the kitchen a particular day, their food sources, their traffic level, or some complex mix of all 3.

I said "Christmas Ales" because my local Whole Foods put them out under a display with that as a label.

The beauty is that you still can go to Su Casa and have that feeling.

I think the key is to have a few margaritas before digging in.

That was a joke - I was coming up with a category name for you.

"I don't see how categorizing them (incorrectly) takes away from your drinking pleasure or why it disturbs you so profoundly."

That's my confusion in all of this as well.

Oh yeah - it drives my wife (who grew up in Eastern Europe) nuts.

I think we are thinking of this in too narrow terms. Thomas can correct me if I'm wrong, but Europeans have never understood the concept of 20 different types of Cheerios in a grocery store, either. :)

Sorta, but not that close. It's on the east corner of Miramar and Distribution, behind that "European Motors" place that came and gone. St. Archer Brewing is across Distribution. On the other side of Miramar is where those train cars seem to have been abandoned.

Your football banter has grown tiresome - now is the time on Chowhound when we dance!!!

I've been working my way through the Supernatural Sandwiches list. The problem is that I've liked some of them enough to develop cravings, and thus end up repeating - slowing down the rate at which I've been able to try them. Getting a job less than a 5 minute drive from there should speed that back up in no time, though (as well as empty my pockets).

Good restos near Carlsbad

That would bring Encinitas, Solana Beach, Del Mar, and Rancho Santa Fe within your range (as well as Oceanside, Vista, and San Marcos).

Good restos near Carlsbad

Specifying "near Carlsbad" greatly reduces your choices. What is your definition of near? 5 miles? 10? 20?

San Diego New Restaurants: 2014

I understand this is a small chain with other locations, but they really should have thought a little on the name thing. Or maybe not - maybe they hope they get a little Guy Fieri traffic from other confused people.

I'm still confused that the Firestone Walker Stickee Monkee went from being a "English Barleywine" to a "Central Coast Quad".

I agree with TvD. In fact, I'm not sure why you think anybody would disdain you for that methodology, sunshine842.

Marisco German Truck Location?

Probably is - that one isn't in my usual radar.

Marisco German Truck Location?

Seems like a trivial point, but many of the seafood taco trucks are not named "Mariscos German". I'd hate to have the OP driving around looking for that exact name. :)

Del Mar suggestions?

There is a relatively new Whole Foods just north of Del Mar.

Cask Ales in the US

Granted San Diego is more brewery centric than most places, but I can count on all my fingers and toes the brewery tasting rooms and bars that will put up casks, and many of them continuously (some only do it on particular evenings). During the last craft beer "revolution" in the early to mid 90s, pretty much every brewpub I encountered in the midwest had a cask offering.

Yes, in the grand US tradition, they like to do things on cask that are a bit unconventional (e.g. I've had wee heavy and barleywine on cask at Alesmith), but you often see ESB, pale ale, and brown ale on cask. And of course varying strengths of IPA.

To answer your question, Paprikaboy, it's pretty easy to find cask ale in beer centric pubs and brewery tasting rooms. But you won't find it in a bottle, because bottled ale cannot be cask ale. Different animals.

As far as people not finding it - they aren't looking in the right places. You won't find it in your corner bar or a dance club.

A sense of dread overcame me when I saw that you responded to this thread. I'm glad that my instincts are still sharp.

Real dairy frozen custard in San Diego?

Gelato has a lighter body and texture, IMO.
