Who can say “long weekend”? Frickin right!! Technically I’m still working tomorrow, but I fully expect a ridiculously slow day. Tomorrow kicks off with getting up at 4:45am to make sure I’m on the golf course for 5:17 sunrise.

And yes, I’m probably insane.

Morning golfing is fantastic. Stupidly early waking aside, the course is dead quiet with no one but the birds and wild bunnies to keep you company. During the summer the weather is perfect; it stays in the 70s or low 80s with the cool morning breeze still kicking it old-school. I love having this time to myself….if it wasn’t for the bugs, it would be perfect for no-pants golfing.

Speaking of no pants, tonight’s beer is Victory Helios – a 7.5% ABV beast of a saison. Up until I googled for an official beer style, I wasn’t sure what Helios was. I took my first sip moments before searching and I was already thinking “peppery!”. Peppery, sticky sweet, and kinda grassy. I do believe that’s the first time in 3 years I have used the term “grassy”.

Although saison is at the bottom of my favorite styles list, this one isn’t too bad. Then again, I DID have three beers before breakign into this one.

Gotta go. On tap for the rest of the night: drink the rest of this bomber, fall asleep.
