tourist Several Beer Anecdotes:
In Maine the used to sell a Beer named Dawsons that didn't come in a Six-pack, it was sold Five in a Plastic Bag.
One night up near the Quebec Border in Maine (had I been in Quebec it would have been near the Frontier) we were sitting around one winter Drinking Quarts of "Canadian Ace" and every single Quart tasted different,evidently they didn't have a Quality Control Department.
I remember when I used to think Michalob was a fine quality beer, Nowadays I Think America doesn't even produce a Fine Quality Beer.
I drink Bass Ale, Becks, St. Pauli Girl, and in the Summer I like Corrona with a slice of Lime.
001208
...
miniver I remember the bragging-about-how-much-we-could-drink phase.

What champions were we, hmm?

I even "pulled" without ID when I was 15. I felt cool about that for a long time. I probably still do. I had long, straight hair and wore perfect makeup, and bought new clothing every week. I had a crush on Kirk. He was twenty and a first-year student at the U of S. Tall (but I was a little shorter then) and blond and very cute. I used the last four digits of his phone number for my old bank card passcode.

Dafremen Beer is overrated.

Wait! What the f*ck am I saying? That's not even POSSIBLE!!!
010501
...
nocturnal all I drink on the weekends. during the week all I drink is diet coke. every now and then, for good measure, I drink some water or milk, but those are fairly rare. I am a healthy, healthy girl!

most girls don't drink beer, there are very few who would actually say they enjoy it, but I'd take a Corona any time. I'd drink it during the week instead of diet coke but it's too hard to acquire at my age, especially living in a dorm. risky risky.

Dafremen A suggestion, by the way, I didn't know you were a girl and I'm NOT about to start noticing, so if I call you Do0d, you know why now.

Try brandy and coke...it tastes good if you don't overdo the brandy, it's VERY drinkable and
E&J makes a clear brandy that is easily mistaken for water if you keep it in a bottled water bottle.

Hope that helps you to replace your diet coke habit..that sh*t is bad for you!!!
010501
...
nocturnal man, you are just helping me left and right tonight! and not to worry about the gender issue. I guess I don't really always act very feminine. can't figure out if it's the cause or the result of hanging out with all boys for the past semester, but I'm sure it has something to do with it in one way or another. and thanks. I will try that brandy thing as soon as I get a chance, probably this weekend if I remember. 010501

Special K The day my doctor told me I was allergic to beer was one of the sadder days in my life. *sigh* I still get teary-eyed thinking about it. A big-ass Newcastle Brown was one of the purer delights I'd ever known... If the allergic episodes weren't so damned agonizing I'd take my chances, that's for sure. Gawd I loved beer. 010502
...
Dafremen Draft Cider is what my buddies dad drinks. He's allergic to hops or the other grains or something. Anyhow I bought some Hornsby's Draft Cider the other night and it tasted like weak wine. I was NOT impressed...you poor dear.

Try BRANDY and coke...that's a tasty drink! I like Paul Masson or E&J myself. MY buddy swears by Christian Brothers.

Karp The best beers are as follows:

#1.Redhook Blonde is the finest beer

#2.Followed by Pyramid Heffeweizen

#3. Ohhhhh, and I love Alaskan Amber!

Honorable Mention:

Killian's Irish Red
Fat Tire Ales
Henry's Blackberry Wheat
Mac & Jack's



Disqualified:
Corona -cuz they pee in the beer mian.
Bud, Schmitt, Milwaukies Beast, etc. anything in a can,
010702
...
nocturnal you disqualified yourself for any credibility with the fat tire vote. for me, anyway. 010702

absent but still present "when you're in milwaukee you have to drink milwaukee's best" 010702
...
Dafremen Yeesh. Giving Killian's an honorable mention killed it for me. Lienenkugel's Red is a better domestic red and even IT'S not all that.)

There are very few truly World Class American beers. I prefer to avoid American beers for just that reason.
If I want water, I have plenty of it at the house. I want beer.

The FOLLOWING brews are GUARANTEED to meet or exceed the internationally recognized definition of BEER(in it's various types and varieties) and are available domestically:

Konig Pilsener - Germany
HARP Lager - Ireland
Guinness Extra Stout - Ireland
Erdinger Weiss Beer - Germany
Bass Ale - Great Britain
Red Horse - Phillipines
Weihenstephaner Hefe Weissbier - Germany
1664 de Kronenbourg - France
Negra Modelo - Mexico
Zyweic - Poland
Hacker Pschorr Weissbier - Germany


There are many more...but these are the more commonly available brands.(Don't expect to find most of them in your grocery store though...Liquor Store)

drunken grendel hidden birdmad on a related note,
a great (and in my opinion quite tasty)beer-bomber drink.

the IRISH CAR BOMB

Take a glass of Guinness
(only filled to the point where it will accommodate a loaded shotglass)

Now take your shotglass and fill it halfway with Bailey's Irish Cream

fill the remainder with Jameson's whiskey and drop it in your Guinness.

now knock it back before the cream begins to set.
010703
...
a bird in a bottle or a nice cold one for summer.

The Snakebite

take a good pale ale (i prefer Bass for this one) and a good hard apple cider (if you can find TNT in the glass "can" you've made a good choice)

fill the glass 2/3 of the way with the ale and the remainder with the cider

A variation of this is to add a bit of black currant for flavour/colour, resulting in the Anaconda or Purple Nasty

you'll be gone before you know it
010703
...
Dafremen Dun that bird. The Bailey's curdles up like a cement mixer. It IS tasty though. 010703
...
Allison I don't get the point of beer. It smells bad. It looks like piss. It doesn't even taste that great.

The only reason why I think people drink it is because they want that buzz. After the first couple beers, you can't taste it. You go numb.

Why do people drink alcohol at all? Why bother? I'd rather just have a Coke.
010724
...
Dafremen I agreed one hundred percent. At one time. That time is gone now...long gone...and buried too.

Beers have VERY distinctive flavors. I would recommend one called Bobby Dazzler if you want a taste of crazy aftertastes. All beers have a unique character. Cept most American beers which taste like water.

Norm It's to my understanding that, we, as humans, are only given a finite amount of time in which to experience hundreds of different emotions, to witness thousands of different images, and to understand billions of sounds, smells, and textures, all of which, if given a little more time, people could appreciate to the fullest. I have realized, in the short moment I have spent alive, that these things can be experienced in a broader spectrum, simply, with, beer... 010805

OuT A philosophy professor stood before his class and had some items in
front of him. When the class began, wordlessly he picked up a large
empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with rocks, about 2
inches in diameter. He then asked the students if the jar was full.
They agreed it was. So the professor then picked up a box of pebbles
and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles,
of course, rolled into the open areas between the rocks. He asked the
students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.

The professor picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of
course, the sand filled up everything else. "Now," said the
professor, "I want you to recognize that this is your life. The rocks
are the important things your family, your partner, your health, your
children, your friends things that if everything else was lost and
only they remained, your life would still be full. The pebbles are
the other things that matter like your job, your house, your car. The
sand is everything else. The small stuff. If you put the sand into
the jar first, there is no room for the pebbles or the rocks. The
same goes for your life. If you spend all your time and energy on
the small stuff, you will never have room for the things that are
important to you. Pay attention to the things that are critical to
your happiness. Play with your children. Take time to get medical
checkups. Take your partner out dancing. There will always be time to
go to work, clean the house, give a dinner party and fix the
disposal. Take care of the rocks first - the things that really
matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand."

But then a student then took the jar which the other students and the
professor agreed was full, and proceeded to pour in a glass of beer.
Of course the beer filled the remaining spaces within the jar, making
the jar truly full.

The moral of this tale is: No matter how full your life is, there is
always room for BEER.

petit potiron IPA (India Pale Ale) is my favorite style, especially if I can find a brewpub that doesn't filter it, so it's nice and cloudy. Alexander Keith's is NOT IPA, no matter what it says on the label. It's as meaningless a label as "Sports Coupe"

Failing IPA, ESB (Extra Special Bitter) or just "bitter" is a good style, again, better if unfiltered.

If neither are available, I ask if they have anything on tap that ends in "Ale", those usually taste better than the other drek.

Norm Hermit hoar, in solemn cell,
Wearing out life's evening gray;
Smite thy bosom, sage, and tell,
What is bliss, and which the way?
Thus I spoke; and speaking sigh'ed'

When the smiling sage reply'd--
--Come, my lad, and drink some beer.

Norm Fill with mingled cream and amber,
I will drain that glass again.

Through the chambers of my brain.

I am drinking ale today.

Norm Our lager, which art in barrels
Hallowed be thy drink.
Thy will be drunk, I will be drunk
At home as it is in the tavern.
Give us this day our foamy head,
And forgive us our spillages,
As we forgive those who spill upon us.
And lead us not into incarceration,
But deliver us from hangovers.
for thine is the beer
the bitter, the lager,
forever and ever

Strideo Nine people died in a beer flood in 1814.

The ongoing spate of Internet reports of unusual deaths, both real and fictional, might lead some to believe extraordinary modes of demise are a recent phenomenon. Nothing could be further from the truth -- the Grim Reaper has always found incredible methods of ending human life.

One such instance took place in 1814 in London. On October 17 of that year, a rupture in a brewery tank containing 3,500 barrels of beer caused a flood of fatal proportions in the London parish of St. Giles. The wave of beer swept victims off their feet, dashed them against walls, and buried them under debris. Two houses were demolished in the sea of beer suddenly loosed upon town, and nine people lost their lives in the flood of suds.

America endured a comparable disaster in January 1919 when a rupture in a molasses tank unleashed a flood of goo that killed twenty-one Bostonians.

...
oE yeah..in college i hung briefly with a few exchange students..and they reminded me nightly how irredeemably inferior our beer was to the hearty fare imbibed in pubs in england and elsewhere...

when i used to drink after a few beers i'd start expectorating these ale fevered quilts of conjecture...weaving like an apparation..sodden streams of incomprehensible blather..personally my beer of choice was mulson and then hienekken..
...

it's been so long since i've sipped that i'd probably be buzzed on 2 beers..
if i'm voluble now..then you do not want to hear me when i'm intoxicated..degrees beyond garrulous..almost like some lapsed preacher swaying in the pulpit..my friends tell me though it was quite amusing for them..i've been separated from those seas of bargain beer..telling my torture to sleep in the alchohol shallows..setting to restive slumber those bruising fugues..and sure yeah only the young can really afford to be confused..i am the craven jester in the court of madness..stirring the sediment at the bottom of a stagnant pond..props to james baldwin..call me back..call me back to my so called life..maybe this is what heroism is..to shrug the inertia of all theses uncompleted, unrequited kisses of awakening in a rumpled bed to a dreary dawn and a reticent lover..recognizing the mutual exploitation of one another reflected blankly in that stricken posture damp sour bodies..clouds of the nights dissapation rising off of our morning after bodies..sometimes it's the blandness and regret of a one noght stand..sometimes it's the body of a soul you no longer can love..yeah..and beer brings it all out..of me..look there in the corner there's a stern tower of merciless inculcation sister somebody without her habit..her cotton white coiffeture rigidly sprayed into place..phantasms after empty orgasms and then..a subtle shrug..and an obdurate jut of chin..and then briskly out the door..same time next year huh?
