I am committing to drink a different beer every day for 100 days, and document my findings. (And life is too short to drink cheap beer) Thanks, Claudia Disney for my new profile picture!


ELYSIAN, The Immortal IPA

Elysian. Sometimes a little Greek mythology can help with understanding life. Are we immortal? Where do we go when our bodies fail? Under this little plumeria is a body of a cat resting. Yesterday morning she was alive and warm, but not well. In the evening she was stiff and cold. Hard to understand. Where did that cat spirit go, when the heart stopped beating? We had a relationship, she will live on in my memory, she was quite a personality. But does she live on somewhere else? I have asked myself those questions about my parents and other loved ones I lost. Those are eternal questions. They have been pondered through millennia and religions have been founded trying to answer them. I will not attempt. I will have an Elysian Immortal IPA, enjoy the fleeting moment I exist in. Feel the pain and move on... wishing that my beloved cat Tofu now is playing on the Elysian fields...
