Drinking a Focal Banger by The Alchemist

I am drinking a Focal Banger by @alchemistbeer. Always wanted to try this. Earthy citrus hop aromas with a mellow bitter finish.

Always wanted to try this and Ian C. made it happen. Thank you!

Earthy citrus hop aromas with mellow, hop bitter finish. Pineapple?

So … I was hoping to do a play on words. My Nikon is broken. Dropped to the floor. The only aperture that works on any lens is f/1.8 and the only lenses I have that I have at f/1.8 are the AF-S Nikkor 35mm and AF-S Nikkor 85mm which also happen to be my favourite lenses.

So I have a “banged” up camera that works at a “focal” length of 35mm and 85mm. Focal Banger? Oh, I suck at this.

You know that feeling when you’re on vacation and everything is going just right and you’re feeling wonderful, but then you realize that it’s the last day and tomorrow you are back to work? That’s what I feel like sipping the last sip of Focal Banger.

It’s bittersweet. Did I just make a pun?
