I'm pretty sure that there are other people on this thread that needs it far more than me. I rarely - if ever - drink alcohol. Though I don't mind the two I mentioned, Alcohol is generally not my cup of tea.

A few years ago, after a long/hot/arduous day at work, my boss handed me a Budweiser out of his freezer - to this day it's the most satisfying beer I've ever had. Sometimes the situation you're in dictates how much you enjoy something, no matter how awful it actually is.


Do you mean, Budweiser in general? Or that particular Budweiser on that particular day?

That particular budweiser on that day. Otherwise, I could probably do without budweiser for the rest of my life.

Moral to live by - If there are bigger alcoholics than you, you're not an alcoholic.

What kind of bar is this?  Grin

How about a few more recommendations for anyone to seek out and try? I gave two pumpkin brews but I'm thinking they may be limited to the New England area. Aren't there any regional favorites to suggest? That's kind of what this was set up for...

If the barstools start flying and a guy gets slung face-first down the length of the bar, we're in trouble.

That's a pretty stupid moral, and in case people are insinuating something by my comment, that's not what I agree with. I'd just like to make this clear to those who don't realize this:

I have maybe 3 or 4 drinks a year. How in the hell does that imply I'm alcoholic. Can't I make a comment without being sh*t on?

Despite their reputation, Old Milwaukee makes a great canned N.A. beer for those of us who prefer to be the designated driver.

What's wrong with therapy anyhow...

How about a few more recommendations for anyone to seek out and try? I gave two pumpkin brews but I'm thinking they may be limited to the New England area. Aren't there any regional favorites to suggest? That's kind of what this was set up for...

I tried some Blue Moon Pumpkin Ale recently - good sh*t. Would drink again soon.

I really love drinking pints at the pub with friends...its really the saddest part about being a student in America. I can't legally drink anymore! Damn law  Angry A friend of mine had a party on the top floor of the Ozone bar, the highest bar in the world. I didn't take this photo, but here's the view:


Now imagine that with an open bar! Good, good times.

My go-to beer is usually either Hoegaarden, Heineken, or Stella. I usually have a pint of one of those + whatever specialty the pub has.
I tried one of these expecting great things:



Very bland. Did not live up to cool name and logo.


My last trip to Japan involved raiding the 7/11's for every kind of alcohol they supplied - they've got a lot of fun fruity drinks with high alcohol content, but not much interesting beer...and I'm not a big fan of the Sapporo/Asahi/Kirin, though you can't really complain when you're getting it out of a beer vending machine in your hostel lobby.



And an honorable mention goes out to Bear Beer, which comes in 6, 8, 10 and 12 percent alcohol content. Not a very enjoyable beer, but its fun to drink.

Love me some beer. I live in what they call "wine country" but I'm not a fan of that grape drink really at all.

Some favs: Pabst Blue Ribbon, Miller High Life, Lost Coast Great White, almost anything Lagunitas makes, Mississippi Mud.

I live about 20 minutes from the Lagunitas brewery in Petaluma, so I've got to support my local economy by buying their beers. I really dig most of their seasonals. Hairy Eyeball, Lil Sumpin Extra or Wild, and the Undercover Investigation Shutdown ale in particular.They also make a delightful Cappuccino stout. Try it if you never have!!!

PS Pliny The Elder is overrated but goes great with some mussels and garlic fries.

Edit: deleted

I have a memory from a tv show where the town therapist who listens to everyone's troubles and takes notes is eventually revealed to just have been doodling for the years he spent listening to people talk. Anyone know what show that is? My brain snapped to Twin Peaks, but I don't think that's it.

Generally there's nothing wrong with it. But I don't like it when people who don't know me personally says that I need therapy, especially given the context. It's just not appropriate, and it came out of the blue, unprovoked.

Seriously, any beer that says 'creamy white' on it can't be very good.

I'm quite fond of umeshu (Japanese plum wine).  The best kinds I've had have actual fermented umes in the bottle.  I'm also partial to magkeolli, which is a kind of unfiltered Korean rice wine (though its alcoholic content is closer to beer) that looks like milk and tends to be imbibed in picnic-like settings.  I remember people drinking it before paragliding competitions in Korea, which I wouldn't recommend (and never tried myself), but it is quite good.

Soju is terrible though.  It tastes like hand sanitizer.

I don't really drink anything else other than beer. As far as that goes, you can't beat Grolsch in my book.

A band called The Beach Boys are mostly going to be a fun in the sun-themed group. And that has, is, and will always be just as it should. There needs to be ONE classic band that isn't a pack of endless "artistic" moan. All people wanna do is make The Beach Boys into another Beatles they are less tired of.
And, for anyone who has actually experienced them, surfing and cars carry PLENTY of emotion and life experience. They can carry as much metaphor as any Van Dyke Parks clever epistle.

The Czech Staropramen is also pretty popular around here and very enjoyable.
