THE BEER THREAD

Post by zman » 16 Oct 2011, 09:52

I thought, there is something missing from this site.
While having a few beers last night I thought what it is, A Beer Thread.

Had my first of these last night, pretty good.

Shiner is the official beer of my garage, but I haven't seen Shiner Blonde around here yet. Is that a seasonal beer? I am currently paying $15 for a 12 pack of Shiner Bock. Seems a little high to me. What are you guys paying?

I discovered Shiner Bock on the beer thread on the other site, great beer.
Don't know if Blonde is seasonal. Wife brought home a variety pack,
it has Bock, Blonde, Black Lager and a couple others.
Going to try the Black Lager tonight.

A twelve pack is $13 something around here.

Blonde is pretty good.....but, my all-time favorite(thanks, Scamp!), is Leinenkugels Summer Shandy......gawd that goes down easy in the heat......only problem is, it's only available in.....you guessed it, the SUMMER. WTH is up widdat?? LOL.

Other faves:

Fireside Nut Brown
1888 Bock
Sunset Wheat
(all from Leinies)

Love Yuengling, when I can pilfer some from the neighbor who travels east of the Mississippi on occasion.

Kostritzer in the winter, pretty heavy, but tasty.

Samuel Smiths Nut Brown Ale....spendy, but worth it, IMO, but only on occasion.

The Shiner here runs around 13 for a twelver.
T3
Yup, that guy, the hooligan.

Somewhere out there is a tree, tirelessly producing oxygen so you can breathe. I think you owe it an apology.

Had a couple of these the other night.
Pretty good, similar to Guinness.

The only Sam Adams I like is the Octoberfest, and only in draft.

Amen, z-man! Bill, it's back on the shelves at Albertsons. Sit down though; $7.99 a SIX!!! :o Gotta be someplace in town that sells 12-packs with a price break.

Speaking of "not bad, for the price"; Albertsons is hawking my "cheap watery summer beer" - Michelob Ultra in the skinny cans - for $13.99; 12 packs are $11.99. Can we say "DUH!" boys and girls?

Troy, my wife Sue and I went to Red Lobster for lunch one Sunday back in late June (nothing special, we were just "childless" for the weekend). I tried Sam Adams' "Summer Brew". Stuff was actually pretty good - surprisingly so, for a wheat beer. Wheat beers to my palate usually taste like what I'd imagine dog vomit to taste - that shnizzit was actually VERY GOOD!

The restaurant had it on tap; I later bought the bottled version and it was almost-but-not-quite as good.

Bill, I wondered who would first pick up on that simile. But what's with the dangling participle you added?













Somebody oughta have fun with THAT question! :mrgreen:
