Behind The Bar For April 2016

Breadcrumb Navigation

Fat Head's Brewery FlightThe Behind The Bar series will be used to keep tracking of my drinking throughout the month. This post will be updated during the month of April 2016 as I have a night out or a cocktail at home.

  1. Winking Lizard (Bedford) / Melt Bar & Grilled (Independence) – 4.1.2016
    Bell’s Two Hearted Ale
    The kickoff to WrestleMania weekend, we stopped at the Lizard for lunch (Don’t remember what kind of beer I drank – I had two) and then hit up Melt for dinner with the family after going to see Batman vs. Superman. Good start to the weekend.
  2. Fat Head’s Brewery & Saloon / 16-Bit Bar + Arcade / BW3 – 4.2.2016
    Beer / Whiskey
    Wow. Talk about a day full of drinking… and this is just the warm up for tomorrow. No wonder I’m a fat ass. Started the day at Fat Head’s for lunch and beer tasting. I limited myself to “just” the tasting flight which consisted of eight beers: Battleaxe Baltic Porter, Head Hunter IPA, Midnight Moonlight, Bumbleberry Honey Blueberry Ale, Boogaloo Blonde and three more I don’t recall. After that, headed to 16-Bit for some video games where I had a Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale and two or three drinks called the “Macho Man” which was Honey Bourbon, Coke & a Slim Jim. Ended the evening after dinner at home with a Heinekin at BW3. First Heinekin I can remember drinking in quite some time.
  3. WrestleMania 32 Beeramid – 4.3.2016
    Beer (lots)
    The day I look forward to all year. Beeramid / WrestleMania day! Last year was a down year with Pip being sick and Marko having a newborn at home. We went back to previous levels of seven rows and generally had a blast doing it. In addition to 13 Miller Lites I had a beer at BW3 waiting for our wings. I swear… I’m still full. Not sure how many more years we’ll be able to keep this going. It takes longer and longer to bounce back every year.
  4. Giant Eagle Market District – 4.7.2016
    Sierra Nevada Five Hop IPA
    Went to dinner at Market District before Wife had to run off to a meeting. First time I’ve had a drink since Mania and I was finally feeling detoxed.
  5. AMP 150 – 4.8.2016
    Bourbon Flight
    Dinner at AMP 150 for the start of Alphabet Dating (I was in charge of A). Had a flight of bourbon which was glorious. Ended the evening at the “A”rcade Dave & Busters but didn’t do any drinking there.
  6. Red Lobster – 4.14.2016
    Miller Lite x 2
    Dinner with Wife after a meeting with our financial adviser. A couple of beers to wash down crab legs and lobster always a winner.
  7. Lincoln Tap House – 4.15.2016
    Great Lakes Chillwave, Jack Daniel’s & Miller Lite
    Happy hour at the Tap House included the first Chillwave of the year. Great start to vacation week!
  8. McCoy’s Bar & Grill (Orlando) – 4.17.2016
    Jack Daniel’s / Miller Lite
    First day of vacation. Spending the night in Orlando before getting on the Disney Dream cruise ship tomorrow. Beer by the pool this afternoon followed by Jack and olives for dinner.
  9. Disney Dream – 4.18.2016
    Booze / Beer
    Went with the family on a Disney Cruise. Didn’t drink what I’d consider a lot by cruise standards (maybe one or two drinks per day) but I did drink each day on the cruise.

  15. Winking Lizard (Beachwood) – 4.28.2016
    Great Lakes Chillwave + 2?
    Went to the Lizard after celebrating my niece’s birthday to watch the NFL Draft and hang out with the guys. Didn’t get there till later and knocked back 2-3 beers before calling it a night.
  16. Lincoln Tap House – 4.29.2016
    Great Lakes Chillwave, Jack Daniel’s, Miller Lite
    Chillwave, Jack & Miller Lite seeming to be my regular kickoff to the weekend these days. No complaints from me.
  17. Home Sweet Home – 4.30.2016
    Miller Lite x 2
    Little League Opening Day today. Had first game of the day at 9:00 for G and last game for C. Was 41 and breezy for the early game and raining for the later. Beer with carry out pizza was necessary after that day.

17 out of 30 days (56.66%)

How does this compare to previous years?
