Today I got a new tattoo to mark the occasion of being in my Great Grandfathers homeland. I had his signature added to a beautiful 1970’s Swedish Kurbits @hangmattanstatuering thank you for such a great experience I’m beyond words to express how happy I am with this piece. #tattoo#pride#sweden 🇸🇪 #wearingyourheritage#goteburg
I would put this at about 25% of the drinks devoured in the last three days. My mind is a whirlwind of sours, stouts, ipas, lagers, porters, goses, reislings, cocktails... with most of the focus hinging on wacky beers by local craft brewers in the 8-12% range. The second photo? That ain’t foam; that’s a (somehow non-sweet) beer soft serve atop @omnipollo peach candy popcorn sour. There’s a Närke Tanngnjost & Tanngrisnir 10% smoked malt doppelbock (mindblowingly good and, to think, the bartender tried to talk me out of it) and a Poppels/Evil Twin Swedish Fika Biscotti Break Stout; we found Omnipollo Texan Pecan Ice Cream stout and another that was coffee chocolate vanilla granola; I chanced upon one of the best reislings I’ve had in years in a steampunk bar, and this doesn’t even include any of the amazing beers we collected to drink at home (if you ever find @duggesbryggeri Flower Power Sour or Queen’s Sour or their coffee stout, something called the Viking Tango Time by @amagerbryghus, any kind of grapefruit ipa or a pecan mudcake stout, buy them immediately). Gothenburg you are a tipsy delight of a wonderland and this is definitely the most I’ve ever talked about beer in my life okay I’m done I promise.
Good luck to @steveknuckey and @bmathas800 - two Fitzpatrick Coaching athletes - in their first race for the European season tonight in Sweden.
Physically coached to perfection by 800m guru @jrinaldi800, these two guys have also understood the importance of the mindset and mental training - an exciting month awaits!
