haha, fine, "the beer thread" happy? posted 19 May 2006, 01:05 by Edge of Certainty, Subdidact

yeah, i was just looking in the Q&A section and i realized that if scott ever came back, he'd have to spend three days going through all the crap we left him, and he probly knows that and is afraid to even look at how much stuff we wrote....... so i say we all send him an envelope full of cash and a note that beggs him to read....what do you think? view post

Beer vouchers? What kind of beer do you Canadians drink anyway? I had Coors once and it was great (much nicer than XXXX), but I haven't been able to buy it since. view post

Ha. I had some very good microbrews when I was on assignment in Toronto and Montreal. But it sure as fuck wasn't Coors. For my money, Fat Tire Ale is one of the greats. Too bad it's damned near impossible to find East of the Mississippi. Thank the gods someone just drove east with 5 cases in their trunk. view post

If I'm going to drink mass market beer I'll go with something by Sleeman's, Moosehead, or Alexander Keith's for my Domestics. Heineken, Guinness, Harp, Smithwicks, Kilkenney, Tuborg, Stella, or something like that for imports. Anybody who drinks Budweiser, Coors Light, Bud Light, et al should bot be allowed to buy beer... ever. :) view post

I can find Fin Du Monde pretty easily here in NYC, but those others aren't so prevalent. Happily, there's a store (Bierkraft) in my 'hood whose sole purpose is to import odd beers. I gotta see if they've any of the others from this list.

Oh, I'm shamed by liking Coors obviously... :oops: But, hey, it's a nice change from the beers we get down here. Mind you I live about 2km from the XXXX brewery, so everything kinda tastes like malt to me. Light beer's are a crazed idea from the get go. Bud is the only North American beer you can get here consistently, and I won't drink that... Stella Artois or Crown is probly the nicest imported beer available. But if I wanna do some serious drinking, I head for the single malt irish whisky... Mebe we could all chip in for a nice bottle of Glenfiddich. (Hey, this thread should be renamed "The Beer thread") :D view post

[quote] Steam Whistle does an authentic German style Pilsner following the Bavarian Purity Laws of 1512, which makes it awesome. One of the crispest beers I've ever had. Picaroons is a local brewery that pretty much only services Fredericton New Brunswick I think, but they would definitly ship. I love their Irish Red and their Best Bitter is good too. From Pumphouse I would recommend the Blueberry Ale. view post

Mebe we could all chip in for a nice bottle of Glenfiddich.[/quote:2iqyjt1t] glenfiddich is scotch whisky. and it's not even very good as far as scotch goes. i'm not a big beer fan, but i like stouts. st. ambroise oatmeal stout is great. fizzy yellow beer is not for me. view post


posted 23 May 2006, 13:05 by Curethan, Didact

All right. It's obvious. I don't drink at all. I smoke bug powder dust and shoot up mugwump jism. And I have obviously had too much. I was just trying to impress people. :cry: view post


posted 23 May 2006, 16:05 by Xray the Enforcer, Auditor

Yeah, but was that mugwump jism harvested by the light of a gibbous moon? 'Cos it sucks if not. :wink: (although I gotta agree with Gierra. Glenfiddich is awful swill. Gimme a Lagavulin, Laphroaig, Highland Park or Oban instead.) view post


posted 24 May 2006, 02:05 by Entropic_existence, Moderator

I'm not a big Scotch drinker, for my whiskey I prefer Canaian Whiskey AKA Rye myself. Only Crown Royal for me. Stouts are good beer, especially if you want to drink for breakfast :) view post


posted 24 May 2006, 13:05 by Xray the Enforcer, Auditor

Mmmm. Rye. (I switch between Old Overholt and Rittenhouse when I'm using it in cocktails. For straight-up drinking...Sazerac 18-year ain't bad.) view post

oooh. Talisker. a delight. I'd have an easier time listing the scotches I hate than try to come up with all the ones I enjoy. view post

i haven;t tried all that many... i like most of em tho.. not a big fan of peaty ones like laphroaig, but they have their place. view post
