Thread: The NEVERENDING Beer Thread

  1. #76
    I like some flavored beers but not too many. I really enjoy Lakefront (Milwaukee) Brewery's Pumpkin Lager and I like many of the pumpkin aless that I have tried. Point Brewery used to make this awesome Maple Wheat..it leaft a maple syrup taste on your lips when you drank it. It was discontinued due to lack of interest.

    Yuengling's "Lager" is of course the "cheap beer" around these parts and usually my beer of choice. I actually just noticed a few months ago that hardly anywhere has Bud or Miller on tap and everyone has Lager. Yeungling's "Black&Tan" is pretty popular and is on a lot of taps. Their "Lord Chesterfield" Ale is also on the money and great for the summer when the lager is too heavy.

    For some reason PBR, or "the champagne of beers" if you prefer, has become pretty hip in the city . . . i think it has to do with the price. A lot of bars have it on tap now. A shot of Jim Beam and a can of PBR are now known as the "Citywide Special" and can be had just about anywhere by that name for $2-$4

    Yard's is brewed in Philly. I go for their ESA every once in a while but i have to be in the mood. Victory is brewed out on the main line and their Hop Devil is good stuff. It's def. up there on the list.

    i just had the Dogfish Head (of Delaware)"Raison d'Etre".
    Tasty and STRONG! 3 pints and i was ready to call it a night.

    Indeed you can usually tell when the concepts of democracy and citizenship are weakening. There is an increase in the role of charity and in the worship of volunteerism. These represent the élite citizen's imitation of noblesse oblige; that is, of pretending to be aristocrats or oligarchs, as opposed to being citizens.

    Please tell me you think of it as "inexpensive" and not cheep.

    As for Dogfish Head... I love the champaigne bottle look, but it was not a good choice right after an Oktoberfest Party. I don't think that I have been that drunk in my entire life. I did not get sick only because the buzz lasted for a few days.

    flavored beers... there is a chocolate stout available from a micro brewery here that is amazing. I like stout however and I like chocolate. It was a simple win-win.
    Dude, I'm cheesing so hard right now.

    Yes, exactly, the lager is inexpensive and tasty.

    You're in Reading, right? Next time you're in Philly and the line at Monk's is too long head over to Abbaye at 3rd&Fairmount - it's the only other place i know of with the Raison d'Etre on tap.

    I was in Reading. But last fall, I got out and found a great job for a city in the Kalamazoo Michigan area. (Mid way between Detroit and Chicago)

    Yesterday, I bought a six pack of Bell's Oberon. $8.50 at Cost Plus World Market. I also bought a six of New Holland Sundog and Three Floyds Alpha King (from NW Indiana, but close enough) to try out.

    I think a microbrewery in Detroit selling their wares in 40 ounce screw-top bottles might be worth a gamble. Riot Blood Red Ale, Devil's Night Fire-Brewed Lager, and Oakland County Extremely Pale Ale would definitely have some kitsch value, much like the brews from Schmaltz Brewing. Which reminds me ... I should check out the kosher grocery store near me to see if they have any.

    Trivia: Three Floyds Gumballhead is technically illegal in Ohio. Why? (Yes, I know a bar here that serves it. No, I'm not telling you where.)

    Merger talks between Canada's Molson Inc. and U.S.-based Adolph Coors Co. helped boost their stocks on Tuesday, but analysts were left wondering if the brewers' possible merger would create a firm that could compete in a tough global market.

    But since Molson and Coors already have a joint venture -- where Molson brews and sells Coors products in Canada and Coors brews and sells Molson's brands in the United States -- analysts have been wondering where and how the combined company could grow.

    The brewers are steeped in family tradition, with Coors founded in the Denver suburb of Golden in 1873 by Adolph Coors and Jacob Schueler. John Molson founded the company that bears his name, in 1786 in Montreal.

    A Molson-Coors deal would likely offer little or no premium to shareholders of either company with executive positions split among them, analysts said..

    Q. Do Cyburbians drink enough beer to equal

    "In the United States, annual consumption per person in 2002 was around 175 pints, according to industry figures."
    OR

    There's this cool pub in town called the "Pilsen Klub" located on campus which features lots of imports and micros (dimly lit, has lots of couches to sit on, big fireplace with a fire going all winter long) ......anyways....they used to have a chart on the (half timbered) wall which showed the per capita consumption of beer and wine in the world. Needless to say countries like France and Italy topped the wine consumption list, but what surprised me was that Australia led the world in per capita consumption of alcohol overall, edging out even germany in the beer department. I wonder if those stats hold true today?

    I don't know? Perhaps we can ask Rem, da monkey, or one of the other Aussie Cyburbians. That is, if they're sober enough to type a response.

    I don't know how it is in the rest of the nation but it was big news that per capita beer consumption in Pennsylvania has dropped to the lowest level since 1947. Down to just under 23 gallons per person.

    That's because I moved.

    I know Yuengling has been slowly creeping into WNY, but it still hasn't made it to Buffalo, although 45 minutes away you can get it. Tough market to tap into, expecially in a market where Bud doesn't have over a 50% share.

    PBR has been back for a while, although I don't think it ever left. They a had a special at the store for a 24 pack for $8.99, although the Genny 30 pack is still cheaper.

    Has anyone ever encountered a woman who could just put away beer like no one's business? I was looking at one those alcohol metabolizing charts - you know the ones which show how many drinks over so many hours put you at .10 or .075 or whatever blood alcohol level and I noticed on one web site that they had one chart for males and another for females. Typically, the more one weighs the more alcohol one can consume without getting as drunk. The thing I noticed, though, was that a male and a female of identical weight metabolized alcohol at different rates, women appear not to metablolize as quickly. I always assumed that it was just because guys are usually heavier that we hear the gals always saying "I am such a lightweight when it comes to drinking". Apparently there is also some biological basis for it as well.
    That said, I did know this girl in college who could routinely put down more beers than most of the football players could. She did have a rather...uh..zaftig...figure (I guess the beer had to go somewhere), but not so much so that it could easily explain her ability to hold her liquor. I wondered if anyone else has come across this?

    Most women I know will have a couple of beers and then switch to something else. I can't think of any that had hollow legs. Mrs. G. is a direct descendant of Jim Beam and can put away good Kentucky bourbon like no one's business B-)

    This is probably worthy of a sub-thread in itself. It seems that most nationalities claim they have traditions of being boozehounds - some more than others. Irish have figured prominently in this mythology. Russians too. Perhaps there is some basis for it, though. Germans, after all, are the world's great beer drinkers....

    I dated a Norwegian back in college (part of my international studies requirement ) and she could put away a few drinks. However, I have never meet a heavier drinking bunch than the Australians and Kiwis I met and partied with while traveling Europe. Granted I wasn't even 18 at the time but those kids were drinking everyone under the table.

    It might have been because they were sauced all of the time but they were also some of the nicest people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting.

    17 microbreweries in Indiana. That's saying something about the popularity of craft beers. I haven't Googled it, but I'll wager Michigan has got quite a few microbreweries these days. You know what state has got a ton of microbreweries is California. It'd be worth it to make the trek out there just visit the breweries.
