    I tried it! It is both delicious and punk as f*ck.

  • Joe C

    Its a variation on a “man-mosa” which are pretty tasty.

  • JD

    Have (at least) one every time I’m at Codmother.

    It’s beyond delicious. Seriously. Don’t knock it until you try it. Your mind will be blown.

  • Uhlese

    The peruvian bear f*cker is the BEST!

    Also the codmother is just awesome. 90’s music, chalk walls.. great.

    • Sound

      Can they get a be sound system though. The music sounds horrible.

  • Positive Pamela

    Welcome to 2012, PoPville :)

  • Jerry Grundle

    They should’ve just called it “Trying Too Hard.”

    • Kingman Park It


    • stacksp

      Pretty much

    • Anon

      What a silly comment. Codmother seems to be thriving. There’s no shortage of “trying too hard” along the U and 14th st corridors. This place is likely trying the “least hard” out of all of them.

  • textdoc

    So this beer/OJ/Captain Morgan drink is the Peruvian Bear F*cker, correct? (I had to look up Pickleback to rule it out, because I didn’t know what it was.)

    • JD

      Yup. That’s what it is.

      For what it’s worth Picklebacks are also delicious.

  • Mike

    Where do people stand on a name for the beer+whisky shot combo? I’ve always called it a boilermaker, but never noticed it listed as such in a DC bar.

    • Kingman Park It

      I always thought a boilermaker was a beer with a shot of whiskey poured into the beer?

      I grew up in Philly where it’s just called a City Special, so I’ve always called it that. Didn’t know there was an actual name for it.

      • shmoo

        yea, boilermaker is a beer with a shot of whiskey poured in.

      • Mike

        I guess a boilermaker varies by region. Never had a boilermaker that had the shot poured into the beer, it was always on the side. The pop/soda/soft drink divide rears its head again!

      • neighbor

        Boilermaker is definitely when the shot is dropped in the beer. Otherwise it’s just a combo.

  • DCbyDay

    Anyone know what is going on with Handsome Cock? I don’t think they’ve been open since like early July….

    • On twitter I”m told they just had to change their name back to Touchdown!

      • jdc

        It’s still the Handsome Cock and it pretty much opens only on friday and saturday, mainly as spill-over from codmother. Still comes thru as touchdown on credit-card receipts tho.

  • AJSE

    Yeah, Tolga made it for me once (and then I had four more). They’re good.

  • I Dont Get It

    If this is a Bear Bar they seem to have a very limited clientele.

  • TacoPants

    I never can remember how they taste because I always end up having so many… So… Occam’s razor says they’re freaking delicious?

  • lemeow

    Yup–pretty good drink!

  • anon

    There is a really similar drink in WI called a lunchbox. Beer, OJ and amaretto.

    • NH Ave Hiker

      I used to drink those in Montana as well. Tastes like an orange creamsicle!

  • UStShawCohi

    Ah, yes, the PBF. I’ve been drinking them for years. A U St cocktail for the ages.

  • Zach Z

    Skip the PBR, ask them to make it with a Natty Boh, it’s a gamechanger.

    • Or just water that’s been sitting in a tire, all the same really.

  • BrooklandBabe

    oof. I tried it. lots of times, in one night.

    it was messy, but strangely delicious.

  • B

    Yeah it’s not half bad, if you’re ready to turn things up a notch. A couple of those and fried oreos ain’t a bad way to spend $20 bucks.
