Re: Favorite Beers


I like the Heineken, I did god Heineken experience in Amsterdam this past summer, really cool company and really good beer. It def got me drinking their beer. And the only decent low cost beer I could get when I spent 7 weeks in France.

I've had a hankering for Old Speckled Hen lately, but no one ever has it around here.

Can't go wrong with a "Lager". Thats Yuengling for all you non-PA types.

Re: Favorite Beers


For quite a long time now I have drank mostly Bavaria. Its sold at the liquor store here, not the beer store. Yes here in Canada we have separate stores, although the liquor store has added alot of beer to their arsenal.

A good beer from Holland that I think tastes like Heineken, and much cheaper.

It's been like that for a while. I remember being blown away by the beer selection 19 years ago.

I'm not a big fan of Fest or Pumpkin beers so I've been drinking mostly double bocks, Paulaner Salvator and Spaten Optimator mostly. I'm allergic to hops so the new IPA's all make me stuffed up. A lot of Bass Ale and some Dogfish Head 90 Minute.

I think the lowest ABV is Bass at 5%(it's nowhere near the beer it used to be but I still drink it for some reason) and the Dogfish tops out at 9% so it's an "at home" beer.

I highly recommend all of the above, except the Bass.

I definitely have no fondness for Bass, and no ability to remember brand names for the most part.

Just reading the specs on that LA Vache Folle stuff, and the guy keeps referring to "lactose", and I'm thinking "WTF, beer made with milk?", and I shake me head.

We doan need no steenkin "fancy names make it better" sh*t, just make it strong, dark, sweet and I'll be just fine.

Don't get me wrong - I like happy surprises - but names just don't mean much, and I don't drink enough any more to care.

I may have mentioned these contractors I know are rigging up a micro brewery catty corner from our new store. One of the principals asked me if I liked "craft beer".

I replied - "you gonna make dark stuff?"

He looked at me as if I speaking tibetan. Oh well, there's still 2 weeks left in October, and Frankenmuth is just 20 minutes north...
