Enjoying some Genny Creams right now. As much as I enjoy a Saranac or Magic Hat on occasion, sometimes a local classic hits the spot just right. It ain't too bad on the wallet either.

Enjoyed a Brooklyn Ale tonight with some Grimaldi's White Pizza with Fried Tomatoes, Pepperoni and Sausage...my date had Blue Moon with orange slices...I've had it but it doesn't do much for me. I'd rather have a nice Amstel or Stella Artois if I'm going import. Tried going to the Yard House ((feature yards of beer)) but they had a 3 hour wait at 7:30 so ended up with pizza instead.

Haha, my grandpa drinks that stuff too. It's not bad, but I guess it's a good "old people" beer

I'll drink just about any beer you put in front of me that isn't a wheat beer/white ale (basically any blond Belgian style) or some ******** beer that's fruit "infused" (including all Lambics). Tonight was started with a couple Bass, middled by a good amount of draught Ruination IPA from Stone, a delicious porter from the same bar with the Ruination, and capped with some good old fashioned Molson Ice from one of only two stores around here in Queens that sells Molson/Labatt products.


I can't WAIT to be up at 730am to get to work for the brunch shift....

I'm enjoying a Firestone-Walker Porter right now. Veddy nice.

I'm a big advocate of drinking local beer as much as possible. There's no need to ship bottles half way around the world any more when there are so many great micro breweries now.

Here are some of my favorite breweries & brews recently:
Stone (San Diego) -- Arrogant ******* and Stone Pale Ale
Firestone Walker (Santa Barbara/Paso Robles) -- Double Barrel Ale
Telegraph (Santa Barbara) -- California Ale
Rogue (Portland, OR) -- Dead Guy Ale, Morimoto Soba, Dad's Little Helper
Full Sail (Oregon) -- various limited issue releases
Humboldt Brewery (Humboldt, CA) -- Hemp Ale
Ommegang (Cooperstown, NY)
Unibroue - Quebec
Craftsman Brewery (Pasadena, CA) -- 1912
Lagunitas (NorCal) -- Pilsener, Censored Ale
Echigo - Japan

All of that having been said, on a hot, hot day, I'm down for a Corona or whatever. In fact, last summer at Sea World, I got a couple of those Bud + Lime in an aluminum bottle and downed them in about 4 seconds. Extremely refreshing. Also, I've got a tradition of driking Erdinger Hefeweizen on summer evenings down on the Venice Beach boardwalk in super-tall glasses. Those go down nicely too.

One of my biggest disappointments in LA is that you can't buy any Canadian beers at the Staples Center for Kings games. It's almost like you're not watching a real NHL game.

Beer - nature's perfect food.


Edit: Ok apparently the word filter doesn't like b a s t a r d. That's pretty lame.

Used to drink Dead Guy Ale at a bar in Augusta after playing hockey. One of the teams was sponsored by said bar and sported the Dead Guy Ale logo on their uniforms. It wasn't bad...we'd get a pitcher or two of that and some Molson.

I'm a big Hefeweizen fan too, having been introduced by a classmate during a European tour back in '86. That with Kirsche shots....

I like a lot of the DogFish Head beers myself. Their Barley Wine is fantastic. Not to mention their 60 minute IPA is probably one of the easiest to drink IPA's I've ever had. The only DogFish Head I've had that I don't like is their peach one. Tasted like bitter peaches. Just awful.

I also <3 Cream Ale. Saranac I haven't had enough of yet to decide how I feel about it. I did enjoy the Black Lager I had recently though. My g/f is from Boonville, so props to Little Falls.

Also when looking up different beer stuff I found this website. It's called Beer Advocate. So far I've been able to look up all sorts of micro brews. Only annoying part is having to sign up to use the search function. Bah.

Ok thanks. In Germany it's 16 for beer and 18 for hard liquor. This means I have five years more experiences than Americans in the same age. Is there any reason why the drinking age is that high?

Mostly due to reactionary movements in the early 1980's to establish it at 21, followed up with ties between federal highway funds and the state mandated drinking age. South Carolina is the only state that may be allowing purchase and consumption at 18, due to a court ruling. Most states do not ban consumption, only purchase, so it's not like people haven't had a few. Or more.

As for WNY... Ontario is 19, so plenty of people start earlier in Canadian bars. Granted, they used to close at 1:00 a.m., then moved that back to 2:00 a.m. (or later by special permit). WNY is 4:00 a.m. closing.

Actually I think the Buffalo area is the only area where it's 4 AM....I do know in Rochester (well, Monroe County) it's 2 AM.
