The Holidays Always Bring On Waves of Nostalgia For Me

The Holidays Always Bring On Waves of Nostalgia For Me

The Holidays Always Bring On Waves of Nostalgia For Me

The holidays always bring on a waves of nostalgia for me.  Cooking the Thanksgiving Turkey in Grandma’s roaster and trying our best to mimic her stuffing recipe always makes me smile.  With this feeling it reminded me to finish off my birthday present of the Muppet RAR beers.  I had Part-Ay- Part-Ay, It Wasn’t easy and Kissy Kissy left to celebrate my Birthday and RAR celebrating their 10 year anniversary.

Part-AY Part-AY

The first grab out of the fridge was the Part-Ay- Part-Ay RAR Brewing.  It is described on Facebook as “Our lactose sour base conditioned over Strawberry, Funfetti Cake, and Pastry Cream.”  It is coming in with a 6% ABV and an overall 4.22 rating on Untapped.  That first sip feels like I got punched in the face with strawberries.  When I realized what character this one was in reference too I practically spit it out with laughter.  This sour beer is a party in your mouth.  It made me second guess there wasn’t more berries in this one and I misread. 


It Wasn’t Easy

The next grab out of the fridge was the “It Wasn’t Easy” (again by RAR Brewing). And yes, this beer is legit green.  Not the green kind you normally see on St Patrick’s day, but the pastel green version of pink Pepto Bismol. (Almost looked similar to RAR’s “Green Milk“.)  It is described on Facebook as “Our lactose base conditioned over Pineapple juice, Lemon Lime, Coconut, and Pasty Cream.” It comes in with a 6% ABV and a 3.89 overall rating on Untapped.  Alright, alright, alright; I have a little bit of a problem with the Green color.  I have to look away when sipping it.  It reminds me of the purple ketchup that came out in the early 2000s and I couldn’t eat that either.

A few mornings ago, I was desperately searching through the Disney app for something new for Scarlet to watch so I don’t hit that millionth time watch of Encanto anytime soon.  The Muppet Babies was an option to watch.  I quickly remembered these beers again. The flood of memories from always having this as a part of my Saturday AM cartoon watching.   I thought I’d try to introduce it to Scarlet.  I desperately miss the Muppet Babies when I was a kid and I must find a way to watch those with Scarlet. I just know she’ll love them as much as I did growing up. How could she not?

(See Dinosaur Dracula’s Facebook page for video. I’ll also have more YouTube videos of this below.)

I knew there would be improvement from this gem of technology but am I that old person?

The graphics were so different these looked like entirely new characters and where did Summer come from?  I couldn’t watch much of the newer version of muppet babies and Scarlet was busy tearing apart another part of the living room.  I caved and put Encanto on again while Scarlet came and sat in my lap to watch it with me. 

I saved Kissy Kissy for last.  It is described on Facebook as “Our lactose base conditioned over strawberries, cotton candy, Lemon-Lime and Vanilla Ice Cream.”  It has a 6% ABV and comes in with an overall rating of 4.24 on Untapped.  I was afraid with Kissy Kiss and Part-Ay- Part-Ay both being conditioned over strawberries that they would be similar.  But they are entirely 2 different sour beers.  Kissy Kissy is creamy and light while Part-ay Part-ay, like I said above, punches you in the face with Strawberries. 

My favorite of this series is easily Woka Woka Pie. (See my previous article – RAR Brewing Brings the Nostalgia with Muppets Out of Order Series – for more information.) I loved this series because your girl loves sours and the wave of nostalgia.  I am going to recommend all to watch Emmitt Otter’s jug band Christmas.  I read it was on the Disney app and I intend to introduce this one to Scarlet too.  If you are a Jim Henson fan, you will love it.

We are working on a massive project here at The Beer Thrillers. We are creating a map of all of the breweries across the United States. State by state we are adding maps of all of the different states with every brewery in each state. (We will eventually get to the US Territories, as well as the Canadian Provinces, and possibly more countries; as well as doing some fun maps like a map of all the breweries we’ve been to, and other fun maps.) You can find the brewery maps here:

We are also working on a project of creating printable and downloadable PDFs and resources to be able to check and keep track of all of the breweries you’ve been to. So stay tuned for that project once we are finished with the Brewery Maps of the US States.
