THE BEER THREAD

This is the place to kick a few tires, drink a few beers, and tell a few tales.

I'm so Glad someone started a beer thread!!!! :beerchug: I live in West-By-God Virginia, and Yuengling porter is one of my standbys, it is almost as good as the satandard in my book Guinness. Always better on tap. When I was in Montana Last Summer I discovered Black Butte, it is a Porter out on Oregon. Also Pigs Ass Porter isn't too bad either! :flash:

Yuengling rocks, though I can't buy it here in OK. Next door neighbor flies into coal-country often, and brings back a couple cases to share.....maybe that's what makes it good, the fact that I can't get it at will.......

Yup, that guy, the hooligan.

Not quite as good as Shandy, it seems a little "sweeter" to me, BUT a tasty beer!

Sorry to rain (pee cheap beer) on your parade guys, but any US-produced domestic beer has so much preservative in it that it gives me a headache! That's why I stick to my German beers. German 'purity law' does not allow preservatives! As such, Warsteiner, St Pauli, Becks, Bittbuger, and others et al, get my nod. If I must 'slum it' and drink Domestic, most of the Canadians, Sam Adams Boston Lager or Yuengling will get the job done (despite the headache).... I absolutely refuse to drink a mainstream US beer like anything from Anheuser Busch, Miller or the like.

Langley beer

I was at a NASA social media event at Langley on 8/3, and was pleasantly surprised to find that they have a craft brewery right outside the gate. And they serve it at the bar in the visitor's center.
:beerchug: Langley is basically's NASA's hot rod shop, so I loved talking to those folks about going fast and beer and whatnot. The local craft brew Amber selection was pretty good stuff. :smoke:

It was too cool. The people at NASA are just absolutely on fire about what they're tasked with doing. I'm sitting here sipping a brew from Portland called "Spine Tingler" as I'm a little under an hour out from the MSL Curiosity landing on Mars. In a few minutes, we'll see what happens. As a mechanical "grease under the nails" type guy, I understand that stuff happens and that they'll already have a lot of success just by getting the rover that far. But I really hope they stick the landing. And I'm all in with good beer hoping for it.
