    Like it says, this thread is to discuss beer.
    What you like.
    What you don't like.
    Something new you've tried.
    What have you cooked with beer as an ingredient?
    What have you cooked while drinking beer?
    What did you burn on the grill because you were drinking beer?
    Stories about beer.
    Storeis about too much beer.
    Stories about beer and golf.

    Basically, anything you want to share about beer, share it here...being mindful that we're not in the member's section.

    For example: I went to a Canes game about a month ago. They had Shock Top on tap, so I tried one. As she was pouring it, she asked if I wanted some OJ in it. I said sure, so she literally poured some OJ in as she was pouring the beer.

    It was pretty good, and well worth ordering again.

    So...beer stories, anyone?

    Since the end of last summer, i've had 8 beer. In that same timeframe, I've lost 9lbs. Coincidence? Maybe.



    For the record, fruit and beer don't mix. Unless you drink with your pinkie up like MC.

    A Canadian who doesn't drink beer? Seriously?

    Oh, and the pinky thing is only used when drinking from a cup with a handle, never with a can, bottle, or glass.

    You just can't get anything right, can you Rock?

    Likes: IPA, pale, amber, ESB, porter, stout, some lagers. Right now my favorite is Bridgeport IPA.
    No likes: light beers, hard cider, red, brown ale, barley wine, and I can’t stand Belgiums.
    Living in Portland (aka “Beervana”) you can’t throw a rock without hitting a brewery, so there’s no shortage of good ones. I’ll try just about any new beer that someone offers me… the one exception is when that scummy drunk dude in downtown Portland offered me a drink of his opened beer… yeah, no thanks.

    I don’t cook with beer for two reasons: 1) it wastes my beer, and 2) It’s just about the worst smell on the planet.

    I’ve burned just about every meat available while drinking beer, but never beyond being edible.

    Too many beer stories to tell, so many stories forgotten because of the beer. Most of those stories would be about too much beer and how I managed to get in trouble because of it.

    I don’t really drink when I play golf. I don’t take golf too seriously, I just always want to play my best for some reason. Any other sport, though… beer me!

    From Sept-April I drink exactly 2 beers per week.

    2 cans of Blue Lite after hockey on wed night.

    During the summer, and once marathon training is over I tend to have a few beers on the weekend during the afternoon on the deck - mostly summer style lagers/ales.


    What I would like to drink during the winter:

    1. Switchback - all time best beer ever. Local Burlington beer only available on tap in every restaurant/bar in the state. Easily the most popular beer around here, much more so than that Magic Hat, or Otter Creek or Long Trail stuff.
    2. Yeungling
    3. Bass
    4. Sams
    5. Newcastle
    6. Blue Light
    7. Long Trail Ale
    8. Red Stripe - I'll be enjoying plenty of these from the source tomorrow :)
    9. Alexander Keiths
    10. Alexander Keiths Red Amber

    Entering the beer season - Yeah!! I think I've had 1 beer since the end of beer season last fall. Beer was intended to be drunk after a round, after mowing the lawn, while scorching steaks, when sitting on the deck in the hot summer sun etc. Winter is the time for a couple of fingers of a quality highland single malt.

    Likes - Fat Tire Amber Ale
    Long Trail Ale
    Long Trail Double Bag
    Sam Adams BL
    Newcastle Brown Ale
    Rikards Red
    Negra Modelo

    Dislike - Light beer
    Anything from Budweiser, Coors or any other Milwaukee style beer
    Wheat beer
    Fruit beer - same concept as drinking Starbucks and calling it coffee.

    Cook with beer - waste of beer

    At the risk of getting things thrown in my general direction (or at my head) I would be fine if beer was outlawed tomorrow. It wouldn't change my life one bit. I prefer bourbon! :cool:

    That being said, I'm not a fan of switchback. I do like Long Trail brews, Blackberry Wheat in the summer is nice. That's about it though. I think I have drank about 6 full beers in the last year, and don't see myself drinking more than that in the coming year.

    Well as a college kid, anything above natty light is golden haha.
    Seriously though, Sam Adams, New Castle, Killians Irish Red, and there is a local brewery in Bloomington that makes a pretty good beer called Upland.

    Seriously though, I drink Leinie's Sunset Wheat for a daily type beer. Tried a Maple Bock on tap last night. Pretty good.

    Cooking with beer? Of course, this is Wisconsin. For a big party, grill up some brats and put 'em in a nice big butter, onion and beer hot tub (Nesco).
    Beer cheese soup and beer bread are pretty good also.

    Beer is 100% disgusting.

    I have never acquired the taste for it and probably never will.

    I have to be in the right mood to drink beer. Like I said, if they outlawed it tomorrow it wouldn't affect my life at all.

    I love the hops...

    Half acre: Daisy cutter - This is a Chicago beer that I believe, you can only get here. If you ever make it to Chicago and like IPAs, then you'll love this APA. Seriously, one of my favorite beers on Earth.

    Two Brothers: Bitter end - This APA is my go to beer when I cannot find a 4 pack of Daisy Cutter or just want a slight change up.

    Three Floyd's: Gumball Head - This AWA (American Wheat Ale) if you like hops and wheat beer, give this a try. Very good but can be hard to find...

    My 3-8 beer night...

    Guinness - just love the stuff.

    My black out drunk night...

    Budweiser - get er' done!

    A new favorite. After I tried it I went to their website and found out it is crafted a mere 4.6 miles away from where I live.

    after a round in extreme heat one got to love an ICE cold beer - but to be honest, the beer you guys have across the waters are completely different to SA!! favourite beer is Corona, Millers Draught, Castle, Heineken, Peroni and a new beer launched recently was the Castle Draught.

    It seems like the better the beer (more bitter always) the less I like it. Laugh at me. I like Miller Lite, Coors Lite or Michelob Ultra. :)

    Oh, btw, Lienenkugels Honey Weis is great for boiling your (Johnsonville) brats in before putting them on the grill!

    It seems lately I've tended toward lighter stuff; Land Shark, Shiner Blonde, etc. Mebbe some of the softer IPA's.
