Christmas holidays always provides opportunities to visit friends and family. Tonight a visit to Dick & Windy Christy’s home also means a chance to hang out at their bar named Christy’s 19th Hole.
It was a special night celebrating Windy’s birthday and a UNC Pembroke victory in Men’s Basketball. Dick graciously opened a bottle of Baltika #9 Lager. This is the first Russian Beer I have had in 2014.
Baltika is Russia’s #1 exported beer. This style of beer would be defined as a strong pale lager. The beer is high in alcohol with 8% ABV but is not a very good beer in my opinion. What was great about this beer was the company I kept drinking it alongside Dick and Windy. Thanks and Merry Christmas.
I am not politically motivated but I would relegate this russian brew to my “One and Done Club”.
