Marble Falling on ourselves.

Container: Thin plastic cup as supplied by beer distributors when you buy a keg from them. Translucent plastic, ribbed for pleasurable holding.

Contained: Michelob Draught, which is a quite drinkable American lager (the true draught product from a keg, not any other form).

Note: As supplied at a wedding we attended in Marble Falls this past Saturday. The reception was at the LBJ Yacht Club, and the food (brisket, turkey sausage, beans and cole slaw) was from Inman's Ranch House Barbecue. Good stuff (except for the sauce, which was not needed). Thanks, John and Betsy! Blessings, Corby and Leigh! As John Calvin famously said, "Good luck!"

Merry Christmas!

Mug: Starbuck's Holiday Mug from 2005. Elaborately decorated in the spirit of the American Mid-Winter Festival. Nice shape, with a good tactile experience.

Coffee: The base (the rut?), Columbian Supremo. A just slightly lighter roast than usual.

Note: No Jesus, no peace. Know Jesus, know peace.

A mug of a different color.

Coffee: Not. Rogue Chipotle Ale, which is an Oregon version of a Rauschbier (German smoked beer) in a .75 lt. bottle.

Mug: A traditional 1 liter mug ceramic from the Hofbrau-Haus in Munich.

Note: A smoky, spicy, un-fltered ale. Yum-O!
