Noche Buena 2011

Just as my 2010 stock was depleted, I received the 2011 shipment (thank you, parents). As far as I know, my house is the only household in Austin with a uninterrupted supply of Noche Buena beer since 2002. Feel free to stop by for a cold one!

Bohemia Frida Kahlo

My parents were in town recently. Faithful to the tradition, my dad brought me a fancy beer. This time it was the new special edition Bohemia Frida Kahlo. That’s right: it’s Bohemia Beer, but the image of the famous Mexican painter is all over it. The beer itself comes in two different flavors and there is a booklet with some history. Check it out:

Flaming Doctor Pepper

The Flaming Doctor Pepper is a popular drink made of beer, Amaretto, and a little bit of Everclear. It’s quite the popular attraction in Cheer’s Shot Bar on Sixth Street, where I shot this impressive video last weekend showing how it’s prepared. Make sure you get out of the way!

Yesterday I received a new and mysterious bottle of Tequila that my dad sent me. My dad somehow manages to find me some wonderful and rare drink every now and then. The brand: “Don José Luis Del Toro Ramírez“. I had never heard about it and I couldn’t find anything about it on Google. So here’s the story:

Happy 2007

Four years and counting… (see previous New Year entries: 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006).The MKX Staff® wishes all its readers a Happy New Year, even better than 2006. May all your wishes come true.Personally, I had quite an interesting New Year’s evening. Went to five different parties through the night, and then had to go take care of something that involved policemen, fights, lawyers and jails (nothing too serious, don’t worry). I finally got home and went to sleep around 11:00 AM. Not a night that will be forgotten soon, that’s for sure.I have selected a very appropriate photo to grace this post: Mr. Aaron Kirsch and Moishele sent me two boxes of Special Edition 2007 Nochebuena and Casta beer. Andres was kind of enough to bring them to Austin.

Nochebuena and Casta beer, yummy
