Afternoon Beer Break: the Rogue Pineapple Party Punch

Yes, after a hiatus of sorts, the beer break is back! Though, this one is a bit different, as we’re talking about a beer that isn’t quite available yet. Read on to see what the Rogue Pineapple Party Punch will do for your tastebuds in October.

Yes, October – while many folks will be thinking pumpkin pie flavors (and I do have my favorites in that arena), there’s still plenty of room for other flavors, right? And sure, these flavors here (pineapple? punch?) sound more like summer, but this year is all upside down, so why not mix up those seasonal flavors? Here’s what the brand has to say about it:

“Bursting with pineapple, coconut, and bright hop flavors, this imperial hazy IPA is reminiscent of our favorite tropical drink, the Piña Colada,” says Hagen Moore, VP of Marketing and Creative. “Summer may be ending, but this hazy, flavorful brew will help you keep the summer vibes going all year long. Pineapple Party Punch is just what we need to finish out 2020.”

I’ve had some mixed experiences with coconut (I’ve found them to be a great addition to sour beers), and pineapple tends to be a more muted note in the beers I’ve tried that have it. This combo here, all wrapped up in a hazy IPA, well, that sounds like one that might just work. Keep an eye out for it this fall, and check out the details over at rogue.com

Well, the world of Android opens up a lot of other options – with one of the more interesting (and unique) ones being the Unihertz Atom XL.

The BioLite Headlamp 750, for balanced illumination

I’ve become quite curious and intrigued by what BioLite produces ever since I first laid eyes on their Camp Stove (which we reviewed earlier this year), and discovered they’ve got a Fire Pit that uses similar tech. That’s not all they do. I thought I was set for headlamps, and then I got word of the BioLite Headlamp 750, which was just announced today.

Storytellers on Tour: The Skald’s Black Verse

Over some past iterations of our stop of the Storytellers on Tour series (which you can see here, here, and here) I’ve gotten a chance to read – and then tell you about – some very interesting books. Not that long ago I took part in a cover reveal for The Skald’s Black Verse, and was curious about the book. Given the opportunity to read it, well, I leapt at that chance.

Focused Work: how do we get anything done, at all?

I have always had this problem. I know what I need to do. I don’t always know how to start. It’s as if there’s a bridge out, even though I can see the destination on the other shore. And I used to try strategies like Work Breakdown Structure, Getting Things Done, or Pomodoro to try and figure out how to manage time. But maybe this app, Focused Work will be the one that breaks my mental block.
