My Favorite Beer - Hogarden

The key to Hoegaarden’s unique, refreshing flavor and spicy nose is real Curaçao orange peel with a hint of coriander.

Hoegaarden is brewed using natural ingredients – mineral spring water, unmalted wheat, barley malt, hops, yeast, coriander and Curaçao orange peel. Hoegaarden is unfiltered, giving the beer a soft body, cloudy white appearance and thick, frothy head. Hoegaarden is 4.9 percent alcohol by volume (ABV).

How to Serve:
This beer is particularly refreshing in warmer months and always should be served in its signature hexagonal glass, which keeps the beer colder longer. Try pairing Hoegaarden with salmon or white-fleshed fish in citrus. The classic Belgian-inspired “moules et frites” (mussels with shoestring fries) also pair well with the beer.

Interesting Facts:
Brewing has been an integral part of life in the village of Hoegaarden, Belgium, since 1318. By the 15th century, Begarden monks settled in the area and began brewing Belgian white (or wit) ales. By the end of the 19th century, the village boasted more than 35 breweries, although it was inhabited by only 2,000 people. Hoegaarden Witbier – biere blanche, the original Belgian White Beer, is renowned in Belgium and all over the world.

Hoegaarden is imported and distributed in the United States by Anheuser-Busch, Inc.

Ok, so try one and let me know if you like it as much as I do

When A Mother Loves Her Son

When a Mother loves her son she will move heaven and earth to see him happy and safe.
She will work a job that she absolutely hates just so he never feels like there is ever something or someone missing.

When a Mother loves her son she will count to 10 before she beat’s his 13 year old ass for moving her car when he should have been cleaning it.

When a Mother loves her son she will become the father that her son will never have.

When a Mother loves her son she will stay up an extra 5 hours after working the graveyard shift to watch the “Little Bill” DVD 4 times.

When a Mother loves her son she will forget what her name used to be and usually recognize Mommy or Ma!

When a Mother loves her son she will NOT! deal with the bull shit of a grown ass man

When a mother loves her son she will carry all of his little burdens on her shoulders so that he never has to feel a thing.

When a Mother Loves Her Son….

Who Is Erik Rico??????

He is only one of the many unappreciated talents of our decade.
He is writer, producer, DJ, and a musician who plays multiple instruments. This man is a true artist in every sense of the word. Eric has written for the likes of

The voice of Erik Rico reminds you of the legendary Stevie Wonder with an added electro soulful funk. His songs take you on a lyrical journey where you just want to close your eyes and enjoy the ride.
Eric’s most current album entitled “THE REWORKS’S PROJECT” is a collaboration of remakes that brings some of our favorite R n B classics into a new light. Erik Rico does a fantastic rendition of Sade’s “Sweetest Taboo” entitled “ Sade vs Erick Rico” (take a listen, I promise you wont be disappointed).
