I haven't that yet, but I've seen some ads. They use what I like to call "guitar effects pedal font."

The more steps you take away from Miller Lite, the happier and wiser ye shall become. I am proud of you.

you'll likely get drunk far faster drinking those than Miller...higher alcohol content.

Would there be any interest in a Wine Drinkers Thread? I drink a lot of that, too.

Yea but i go through them like water.


So far with my Flying Dog variety pack:

Tire Bite Golden Ale - Probably my favorite so far. Slightly too bitter but other than that good.

In-Heat White Hefeweizen - Gross. Theres like banana flavor in there or something.

Old Scratch Amber Lager - Not bad, very similar to Golden Ale but a little more taste.

Doggie Style Classic Pale Ale - Decent, i don't remember too much, i'll have to try it again.

I still have Snake Dog India Pale Ale and Road Dog Porter to try tonight.

I'm turning 21 in a month, so I'll start taking more interest in this seeing as I'll be able to choose more what I want.

So far, I'm a basic fan of Guinness and Heineken is also okay. Don't like Budweiser, Miller High Life was pretty good though although I haven't had it for over a year.

As a beer novice, can anyone recommend any Belgian white beers that I can get locally? I remember trying one in France a few years ago and really enjoying it, but I haven't really heard of any around here.

Ommegang is someone to check out if you like Belgians. Made in upstate NY, and therefore a bit cheaper.

I'd read it, but my comments would be few and far between since I tend not to care so much about the supposedly important qualities the wine experts talk about.

I made an assault at that before, but that wine is SO bad. I've drunk a whole magnum myself on several occasions. Fun way to get drunk, awful way to earn a hangover.

I only drink Guinness but when I lived back east I did enjoy a cold Magic Hat No. 9 during the summertime.

Anybody tried the Unibroue beers from Quebec? I think they are pretty good, I used to drink them a lot in college but they are a bit strong for my tastes these days.

When I was 16 it was Molson Export
When I was 19 it was Molson Export & the odd Pint of Guinness
When I was 25 It was Guinness with the odd bottle of Corona
When I was 29 It was still Guinness with the odd Pint of Tankhouse.
When I was 32 I stopped drinking (42 days ago) but I still think of Guinness and the odd Bottle of Innis & Gunn.

I had a Harp Lager and a Legacy Midnight Wit at The Blue Horse in Blue Bell tonight. Still prefer the Allagash, but the Legacy had an interesting spicy thing going on for a witbier. Sort of the autumn version of a summery beer. The Blue Horse is a nice place to eat, too. Their draft beer selection is rudimentary, but they have a small yet tasty selection of bottled microbrews. Very cheap, too; almost all of them are like $3-5.

I tried something new today. We stopped at the Rogue Public House in Astoria OR for some Dad's Day fish and chips. They were bringing around samples of something called "Dads Little Helper" which was actually a malt lager I think. It smelled better than it tasted, but it was still good compared to any other malt liquor beer I've ever had.

Anyone remember the Mickey's challenge?

Bought a few 22 oz. while I was at it: Some Shakespeare Stout and American Amber.

Is it anything like "Edward 40-Hands?" Because I've done that.

My friends and I used to do that at bonfires out in the desert while we were in high school. Good times.

I tried for the 80 in 10. I won the contest, but it took me 12:30 to finish two Hurricanes.

Yeah, it's a decent session beer. Nothing to write home about.

Although I will say it is much better than the Yards Philly Pale Ale by a long shot.

I've noticed it popping up in place of Philly Pale as well. At the Standard Tap, it's now their $3 cheap beer, which is stellar. The Tap now has Philadelphia Brewing Co. printed on their glasses, so theyre in cahoots. Smart move by P.B.C. to get their name out there and get a lot of beer sold to the right crowd IMHO.

EDIT: I think I also read somewhere that the head brewmaster at PBC was originally in Yards, but after a dispute, he branched off and created PBC. Another smart marketing move (creating a brewery named after the city). That alone will get them lots of sales in the local pubs. When someone visiting philly sees that, they'll purchase it on the name alone. Why not try the local brew while you're there? You can always have the standard brews.

Same idea, except it's okay to pee before your done iirc. It's a big-mouth, a 22oz, a 40, another 22, and finally another big-mouth.

I've heard (but never seen anyone do it) of a Mickey's super challenge; it adds another 40 oz with a 64 oz jug in between. You'd have to be some kind of depraved masochist to drink that much malt liquor on purpose.

you should give a Black Magic a try: a black and tan made with guinness and no. 9.

just found a great beer last night, going to be one of my favorites i think: chimay red.

as for the wine thread people were talking about, i'd be down for that, i drink wine pretty often.
