    Bavarian Märzen beer and Jack Kerouacs "On The Road".

    Both excellent choices. Marzen is the most underrated style of lager out there. It pains me that they are usually only available here during the fall because of their association with Oktoberfest. It's a bummer. I really like the bavarian marzen's, but there are a couple good options being made here in the us now as well, particularly Sierra Nevada Oktoberfest, which is usually a collaboration with a german brewery. I am not generally a fan of Sam Adams, but their Octoberfest is actually a very nice beer as well.

    Kerouac is certainly a unique writer. Just finished "Desolation Angels" it was pretty good but not his best IMO. I really liked Dharma Bums.

    Thanks to a friend, I am smoking Erik Stokkebye 4th Generation: Small Batch Aged Virginia in a 2002 smooth natural straight silver banded Ardor Venere Extra Fatta A Mano Maigret billiard, signed by Dorelio Rovera and a black acrylic tapered stem. Ice water and bergs is my evening drink. Watching the Cubs-Brewers game.

    We seem to be getting a slight craft lager trend here in Massachusetts, which I'm loving. We have Jack's Abbey in Framingham and Notch Brewing near me in Salem that both focus on German and Czech lagers. I think Jack's Abbey House Lager might be available beyond New England now--highly recommended in you see it.

    Oh, yeah, smoking Brigadier Black Waterloo in my MM cob. I really like this aromatic.

    Yesterday, as I was walking out to my garage, pipe in hand, my daughter asked, "Is it stinky time?" Then I loaded my pipe with Tuskegee Airman from C&D. I rarely smoke blends with latakia, since I don't like the taste. When I came back into the house, my daughter said, "WOW! YOU REALLY ARE STINKY!"

    Thanks to a very generous forum member jaytex969, I had my first bowl of Tabac Manil la Brumeuse in a Butz Choquin Old Root saddle stem billiard. Despite my initial trepidation, I found the smoke an unique and enjoyable experience. The Brumeuse semois has taken a seat in my rotation.

    Thank you jaytex969!

    Just finished smoking Esoterica Dunbar in a smooth straight late ‘50s, early 1960s Lane era Charatan Selected 43 Dublin with a black vulcanite double comfort saddle stem. This pipe was formerly owned by actor William Conrad. Been a busy evening.
