It's actually a play on words, and an homage to the band Wilco, whose "best album ever" (IMO) is Yankee Hotel Foxtrot...

Who would have known the difference, right?  ;D

It just comes across as kind of amateur - we've all heard people try to spell something with the phonetic alphabet and look silly stumbling along the way.
I enjoy the phonetic alphabet, well, Bob's version anyway....when having to deal with folks on the phone whom have a minimal grasp of our language and they ask me to repeat something I have my own special language for them...goes something like this..."yes ma'am, that's I for idiot, D for dummy, S for stupid,J for I'm a jerk that needs a different job, etc. etc.  ;D "

And so it goes...

Bob,

So true, so true. As with so many things --- when you get to the level of a true aficionado/nerd (especially one with interests spanning multiple arenas like beer and music ) most people aren't going to notice (or appreciate) the subtleties like the name of the beer that the folks at Lagunitas chose... :(

They should have just used the album name! ;)

Trying Great Lake's newest offering: Alchemy Hour Double IPA

Wow! They hit it out of the park with this one! Me likey!

I poured it too cold so not much head. Very complex. Somewhat sweet finish for an IPA but the sweetness is well countered with bitterness. Mosaic and citra hops I think. 9.4%ABV is hidden very well.

Yet another great IPA from Ohio!

I read this article the other day that said making one's coffee pretty is sooooo not cool anymore. As usual, I am behind the curve. As long as your coffee gets you wired up = #winning!.

Cafe corretto. Coffee "corrected" with a shot of grappa.

La Colombe Corsica coffee with a slug of Dobel El Original Licor Sabor De Cajeta Con Tequila 1800. This has become my favorite way of drinking coffee. It even makes a lesser quality coffee taste good. Unfortunately, the Dobel product is not available in the U.S. as best I can tell. I have asked my son to look into a Mexican source on one of his trips to Mexico, or else I may have to await my next trip to Mexico. I discovered recently that my bottle of Dobel was several years old (I don't even remember how I got the bottle). So, I will have to see if a fresh bottle is as good as my "aged" one.
