Black Forest Brewhaus

Last Monday of the month is usually Beer Club night at the Black Forest, but due to scheduling conflicts, the Brewmaster asked to reschedule.

We ignored him.

Particularly since a good friend is in town for the week before going to Kuwait, on the way to Iraq.

In any case, this year’s Octoberfest is outstanding. Malty and rich, without being cloyingly sweet. A little heavy at 6.7% ABV. The Hefeweizen is a better session beer.

I drank the Octoberfest.

TBR: Battle of Corrin by Brian Herbert and Kevin J Anderson

The latest in Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson’s Dune prequel trilogy. I bought this in hardcover, as I did the last few, but I’m afraid I may regret this. The coincendence that every character in Dune’s ancestor from 100 generations ago knew each other, and set everything in motion at roughly the same time tends to strain my suspension of disbelief.

TBR: Lord Darcy by Randall Garrett

This is a reissue of all of Randall Garrett’s Lord Darcy novels and short stories, which have been out of print for far too long. I have at least one of them, and probably two, packed away somewhere, but I’m looking forward to reading the rest.

Eric Flint is the editor, and, from what I’ve seen recently, he’s going through Baen’s backlist and doing something about books that aren’t in print but should be.

I’ll post notes once I read the book.
