Here's a tip: don't buy shots for everybody.

But I know what you mean, I'm that guy, always buying rounds and shots for everyone and then wondering why I'm broke in the morning.

Porters and stouts are where it's at. IPAs are garbage.

Those are the rules I live by.

I'm more of a liquor guy, but I'm into Yuengling and Coors Light, Corona, Miller, etc. I never buy the beer though, I need to see what else is out there.

:shudders:

I guess you never really appreciate living in WNY until you move elsewhere, and discover that they don't get Canadian brews.

depends on the IPA... not all are like that. they're essentially heavily hopped because it lasts longer, only real difference verse any other beer. don't know if you know the history, but for others the reason it's called IPA (India Pale Ale) is because it was brewed to survive a ship voyage from England to India without spoiling.

things i enjoy... you can still get the first IPA ever made in England.

Canadian beer is grossly overrated.

micro-brews throughout the US own Canadian beer... and Philadelphia is one of the best beer cities in the world (I'll stand by that statement). if you can't develop your beer taste in Philly it's because you're not trying, not because it isn't available.

Maybe that's why I always get *****ed at when I keep telling people that I don't like beer. Because I don't always drink real beer.

only had it a couple times, not enough to have a strong opinion, but didn't think it was bads. generally, Yards makes good stuff. we really live in a great area between the micro-brews west of Philly and the breweries in NJ.

lot of NY breweries are obviously available down here as well.

It is, and it isn't. When I'm drinking and watching hockey with my friends, I usually make a trip to the pharmacy before hand because it's convenient. The selection is limited to the major brands (Miller, Coors, Labatt's, Molson, Bud, etc.), and in that situation Canadian brews are the clear cut winner.

I know. I went to Maine, and they had some fantastic local brands that I'm still regretting not picking up a 24 pack for the ride him.

Just off the top of my head, The Shipyard Brewing Co. has a porter that I fell in love with. The salmon steak was delicious, but the porter was just the icing on the cake.

You, sir, have just gained all of my respect. I never understood the bashing of fruit either. A lot of unfiltered brews are made specifically to add fruit (Harpoon's UFO, for example. At least that's what one of the master brewers told me when I met him, and I'll take his word for it). Leinenkugel's essentially comes with the fruit already added.

That Corona + Limon is a pretty nice choice as well. In fact, since I plan to get ****ed up wednesday night, I think I'll go get some of each.

The Drunkest Cities

I came across this... I've been to five in the "most" category but eight in the "least" category. I'm not sure what that means.

http://www.menshealth.com/cda/articl...eac____&page=1


New Year's Day 1916 was rough for Colorado residents looking for a little hair of the dog. On that Saturday, the state stopped all liquor sales, predating Prohibition by 4 years. Today, Colo-rado once again leads the nation in its attitude toward alcohol -- but now, the mandate seems to be "drink till you drop." In our second ranking of urban inebriation, Aurora comes in 82nd, Colorado Springs finishes 98th, and, once again, Denver is Most Dangerously Drunk.

We looked at annual death rates due to alcoholic liver disease, as well as who's headed there by regularly downing five or more drinks in a sitting (CDC). Next, we factored in drunk-driving arrests (FBI) and the percentage of fatal accidents involving intoxicated motorists (U.S. Department of Transportation). Then, after tallying the MADD report card of state efforts to cut down on excessive drinking, we had our ranking and, for the state of Colorado, an invitation to AA.

Most Dangerously Drunk

100 Denver, CO F
99 Anchorage, AK F
98 Colorado Springs, CO F
97 Omaha, NE F
96 Fargo, ND F
95 San Antonio, TX F
94 Austin, TX F
93 Fresno, CA F
92 Lubbock, TX F
91 Milwaukee, WI F

Least Dangerously Drunk
10 Jersey City, NJ B+
9 Richmond, VA B+
8 New York, NY B+
7 Little Rock, AK A-
6 Salt lake City, UT A-
5 Yonkers, NY A-
4 Jackson, MS A
3 Buffalo, NY A
2 Miami, FL A
1 Durham, NC A+

New york, NY: Where you can't actually drive, drunk or sober. Probably helps the ranking a bit Interesting list though.

I had about 8 beers the other night - stupid beer and wine only party - got a nice buzz and had a good time but damn did I have a headache the next day.

That's why it's vodka, rocks, olives for me. No sense debating what vodka is the best - anything over $15 is a safe bet. Smirnoff is darn good and Luksosowa is a great buy.

Oh yeah - I like Lager but good lord does it make me fart.

I would say fris can compete with smirnoff, but it is only 13 bucks. If I am going more expensive I will go with Ketel One...oh god yes.
