    Yes, the couple that owned it (you should remember those awful radio commercials!!) unfortunately got a divorce and because they were being stubborn they sold the project to Miller and split the mula.. and then Miller closed it. Damn them! I try not to drink any Miller products because of it, but when you get in a pickle.. mmmm...beer!

    beer, it's what's for breakfast

    1) corona
    2) big rock buzzard breath
    3) guinness*


    *lately this has been called an Irish Car Bomb. You add a shot split with Jameson's Whiskey and Bailey's. Drop it in Boilermaker style, down the lot.

    One starts the evening off rrrrrrreally nice. Four......well, that's a free ticket to driving the porcelan bus.
    I wonder if birds know it's Tuesday?

    1. New Glarus Uff-da Bock or Guinness.
    2. Guinness, unless I am in a micro-brewery.
    3. New Glarus Uff-da Bock, Alaskan Amber, or Moose Drool.

    Damn it all, I was in meetings all day, I am embarrassed to have arrived to the thread so late....

    A couple of thoughts...

    El Guapo my commrade I will drink Miller with you but it has to be really really really really cold...

    Just because its an everyday beer, I am dissapointed to see so many "lights" in the fridge of all my planner friends...

    Kel-I am sorry to have not gone to Clemson when you were there; I would surely have bought you a BAss at Nicks--but not on thursdays


    Ok

    1. Becks
    2. NewCastle--El Feo my old friend
    3. Guiness. No question

    Of Course, I am having a Scotch right now....

    1. Miller regular or Coors Extra Gold (under $15 for 30 pack)
    2. Sam Adams or Fat Tire
    3. Old Style or Dixie (need a bit of humor--even when discussing beer)

    1) I am with JMF, I would rather drink moose green the Keith's. Tranplanner remember that AK IPA is now bottled and manufactured by Labbatts. No longer the small brew it used to profess to be.

    2) Creemore Springs Premium Lager is my favourite North American Beer of all time. For something special there is this great bar in teh Market in Ottawa that has about 200 beers. When there I order Belgian Krieks and am also partial to wheat beers.

    3) For Lager it would be the Creemore, for ale it would be plain old 50 (if I could get it here)

    I am also partial to Guiness and Boddingtons. There seems to be a trend here.
    Too lazy to beat myself up for being to lazy to beat myself up for being too lazy to... well you get the point....

    My favorite beers

    Well, I am partial to a few beers from Wisconsin.

    1. Capital Brewery ( anything from there except the 1900) Try the autumnal fire, a great red that will know your socks off.

    2. New Glarus Spotted Cow - The people from Wisconsin know what I am talking about

    3. Anything cold other than Bud, or Bud Light. Where I live now, booze is so expensive when i go out that I'll drink whatever is cheap. Beers are $5-$8 for a pint out here in NY/NJ.

    Yeah, I only found out the other day that Keith's is actually owned by Labatt. Talk about a downer. Almost as bad as the time back in school when I bought into the "Red Dog" craze, before finding out it was really just Molson. Wonder where that beer is now?

    How could I forget Creemore? GD - I love that beer! And the owner of the brewery, who lives just north of Toronto (on the Oak Ridges Morraine) just deeded an easement to the local conservation authority meaning that his property will remain undeveloped.

    I got happily wasted at my stag on Creemore (well, the Cuba Libres and B-52s helped...). How soon we forget these things...

    If anyone is ever in the PA area, I can guarantee you will all love Yuengling Lager. It is the beer of choice for most of the state, and is the oldest brewery in the US.

    There are plans to expand production at some point to offer in areas other than PA but I'm not sure when that is going to be.

    Vacation idea...

    Since you are all so into beer... you may want to come to Portland (Oregon, that is) next July for the annual Oregon Brewers Festival. It's a three-day event with 72 independent microbrewers. Largest in the country, and very fun!

    Don't forget Rolling Rock.

    There was a PA beer called DuBois Budweiser. They had a big lawsuit with Anhauser Busch about the name. ( guess budweiser is an uncapitolized type of beer in Europe.) Does anyone know if they're still in operation.

    One PA beer to avoid at all costs is Stoney's. i've seen four dedicated and quite in the bag beer drinkers leave a bar when a keg of Stoney's was rolled in. It smells like sulphur.

    What happenedf to Olympia?

    Another one to avoid is Keystone... I'm assuming that's a PA beer based on the name. Whatever it is, it's gross.

    CZ Budweiser is indeed in operation in the Czech Republic and I understand that in the 1950's they signed a non-compete agreement with each other dividing the world much like the Pope and the King of Spain. The Czech brewery has its market area in Europe and Bud is not allowed to be imported over a certain volume. And CZ bud can't come into the US in any volume - Sorry.

    There is nothing more inspiring than a CZ Bud Pills. Great brew!

    I think Olympia, which was bought out by Pabst, sold the Tumwater brewery where Olympia was brewed to Miller. Miller was producing Rainier there for Pabst under a contract for awhile, but I don't know if this is still true.

    In the fraternity house in college we used to buy cases and cases of those just so we could wing them down the basement steps when they were empty.

    Don't ask....it was fun at the time.

    Dixie is the beer of kings!

    I so love that stuff... It was even better when they took the water straight from the Mississippi.
