Re: Let's talk beer

Also, I want to give a forewarning here before this thread turns into that ES thread over there where people give other people shit for what they drink.

It's not what you drink, it's the fact you hang out with people WHILE you do it. I won't deny my embarassed by my buddy (who's like 285 of solid muscle) who drinks daiquaris, but I don't give him shit about it.

Re: Let's talk beer

just some friendly ball busting...

college was an evolution for me. freshman year, it was Natty Light. Sophomore year, Beast Ice turned into Hard Cider. Junior year, 6 packs of imports on Thursdays turned into 30s of Miller Lite or Bud Light on Friday and Saturday. Senior year, whatever premium beer that was on sale at the local beer store (Cheers! was the store, Bass, Sam Adams, Heineken, etc were the beers) that week was what we drank. when Yuengling started distribution outside PA, we drank that until Salisbury had no more to sell.

And now, i'll go to the bar, pick a draft and be content.

I forgot about Import Thursdays! That's where I finally started to get an appreciation for darker/heavier tasting beers.

I remember when I used to think of Bud Light as "good beer," such innocent times.

Re: Let's talk beer

I think what I like about American beers is that they are more "crisp" than other ones. I love the flavor of other beers better, but when I drink I typically drink for refreshment and not taste.

Re: Let's talk beer

Good beer is a very subjective term. I consider anything that achieves the desired effect good beer. Tasty? No. Good? YES.

Well, you can make it stronger if you want. Back in college we used to toss a shot of vodka in our beers. People would look at us like we were crazy. You really don't notice it taste-wise but you certainly notice the extra punch it packs.

I consider Guiness VERY tasty, but it's really weak at 4.2%.

That's just asking for a coma for me. I'll do an Irish Car Bomb here and there, but liquor and I are arch-nemesii (?). The closest I've come to going to the hospital was a liquor night.

Well, lite beer still has alcohol as opposed to decaf which eliminates the caffeine.

In my older age I try to watch my carbs more, so that's why I lean towards the lite beers. Except when I'm drinking Guinness, but that's more carb and calorie friendly that alot of beers anyway.

Re: Let's talk beer

That Michelob Ultra Amber is pretty tasty for "healthy" beers.

My favorite calorie-watching drink is vodka and soda with lime (gotta' be Grey Goose though).

LOL I've had some of my more classic moments while boozed up.

Whiskey and I are mortal enemies. Brings out the true a-hole in me.

Re: Let's talk beer

HAHA! What is it about certain liquors? That's how tequila and I are. Whenver tequila and I get together, it's always a disaster. Talk about BLACK OUTS! This is ONLY with tequila, but every time I get wasted on it, I wake up with shit written on me or somewhere I don't remember how I got. My last night in college senior week, I woke up in this chick I worked with's bed (not with her, she was sleeping on the couch).

We're definitely on the same page. Ultra amber isn't bad, a little too carbonated to pound more than a few though.

LOVE me some grey goose. My wife got me a nice big bottle for graduation and it's waiting to be cracked. This weekend might be a good time.

That and Patron are the nectar of Gods. I can NEVER, EVER afford it, but when a special occassion comes around, my parents will get it for me for Christmas or my birthday. Patron is the smoothest tequila ever created.

I hear you on the beer v. coffee.

As far as carbs go, I'm a pretty lean guy so I can drink into infinity and never, ever put on a pound...it's pretty amazing actually.
