    I miss drinking beer but due to my kidney issue I can't drink for the time being. I'm eagerly awaiting getting into my collection of Michigan beer that's in the fridge.

    Insert bottle in large zip lock.
    Wrap in bubble wrap. Tape.
    Place in box away from edges
    Pad more than you think.
    Shake when done and if you feel any movement....do it again.

    If you are really panicked, you can put them in a box and put that box in a slightly larger one with packing material separating the two boxes. Usually overkill.

    NY Times article: A Midwest Beer Tour to Cure Winter Blues

    Has anybody visited the places listed ?

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    It took me a second to realize what was going on in that picture. Why would you use a decent beer like Sierra Nevada to play beer pong? Beer pong should be played with PBR, Old Milwaukee or if your really classy an American standby from the Bud or Miller family.

    Foothills Brewery in Winston-Salem, NC had brewed 'Sexual Chocolate Stout' this year. It was outstanding! Too bad they don't bottle (yet).

    Best Canned Beer?

    Is best canned beer an oxymoron? Saw this article on the web today. http://www.foxnews.com/leisure/2011/...t-canned-beer/ I'm more of a consumer than a aficionado, what do y'all think? Had any of the canned beers cited?

    Ive had three of the four. The Coconut porter is an amazing beer. never had it in the can only on draft at the tap room. Dales Pale Ale is great, and so is their other ones like Gordon and Gubna. In fact- Gordon is one of my favorite all time beers but It's like 12 bucks a 4 pack where i live.

    The bitter american wasn't bad but I'm not a huge fan of 21st amendment.

    Just cracked open a Konig Ludwig Weissbier. I haven't even taken a sip, but I know it's going to be good, just from the tart aroma. There's no substitute for a real German hefeweizen.

    I've got three bottles of Thomas Hardy's Ale (2007 batch), one of which I'm going to break open tomorrow. The idea of a beer aging like a fine wine is an appealing notion to many beer connoiseurs

    I am enjoying a Rogue Morimoto Soba (yup, buckwheat) Ale this evening. It hasn't turned out to be my favorite Rogue brew but it was definitely worth the exploration.

    Hmm. Haven't seen that one yet in my neck of the woods.

    Perusing the local Friar Tuck's they happened to have a beer tasting going on. I tried the Sam Adams Noble Pils. Not bad, even though I'm not big on pilsners.

    I ended up picking up some Abita Turbodog and some Three Floyd's Black Sun Stout for a housewarming party last night.

    Do you guys think beer served at sporting events is diluted to a lower alcohol content? If so isn't this the most closely-guarded secret of the alcoholic beverage industry?
