    Beer

    On occasion, I like to enjoy a (1, one only) beer. ;)

    So any other Beer Lovers out there? I know a few of you sip the Nectar of the Gods!

    What do you like, what do you hate, what tickles your hop appetite? Lets talk BEER!!!!!!

    I am foaming at the mouth

    This is NOT the place to talk about, of all things, liquid evil. I am indignant that I am now compelled to discuss the deep amber color and thick milky head of the Guinness Draught that has been sitting in my refrigerator. It is a deeply personal relationship that I have with Guinness and now I hear its voice, albeit muffled, in the fridge calling me. I can hear it sing as it rolls out of the neck of the bottle and crashes so sweetly in the frosted glass, its perfume tickling my nose. I listen with quiet ears as it sighs resting now freed in the open air tempting me with it siren song. She is cold and beckons my lips gently. I must go. She is my Guinness and I am her man.

    Well being Irish beer is a drink I must indulge in as often as I can. As of late I've really been into Mexican beer (Corona and Modelo).

    If I could only have beer from one brewery, I would go with the Anchor Brewery in San Francisco. They ship more beer than many "craft" breweries, but less than Miller, Coors, Budweiser and the like. Anchor Steam, Anchor Liberty (ale) and Anchor Porter. They're all good in the 12-ounce bottles and in the San Francisco region, Anchor Steam is frequently available on tap and sometimes also the Liberty Ale.

    There's a thread about beer on the Laramy-K Optical forum. Many of the posts are only because a beer has a "catchy" name or packaging, but a number of the posts are actual taster "results". It's "on tap" at Beer Of The Day.

    You know the saying..."when in Rome". I think every city in China has at least one brewery (only slight exageration) so I typically drink the local brew. Changzhou has a nice green beer that maintains the color throughout the experience.

    As much as I like discussing beer, at 6:20 in the morning it is time to start gulping down some extra strength coffee.

    I am always surprised to see how many Guiness lovers who have never had the pleasure of tasting some of the other(better) Irish Stouts, like Murphy's.

    Different beer for different food. Something light like Rolling Rock or Corona with pretzels or peanuts. Ice Beers with pizza, anchovies, olives, ect. Guinness with anything that can go on the BBQ.

    My favorite is beer with more beer.

    Best bet is to keep atleast 5 different types of beer in the fridge at all times. I keep lighter and Ice beers closer to the top of the fridge where it is colder and heavier beer a little lower in the fridge.

    Only drinking 1 type of beer would be like eating exactly the same food all the time. No matter how good it is variety is the spice of life.

    We love to cruise the carribean and I have become very fond of dos equis, caribe, sol... Very expensive here, so I supplement with miller light. I know, but I'm not 30 anymore and less carbs works when, like fezz, I only have one.

    Guiness, front and center, my alltime fave. I've had Murphy's, 'tis ok, but I really like the mellow richness of a Guiness. When its something lighter I'm wanting (read: more beers) I go for Sol, DosEquus (sp?) or Corona. 999 (or is it 444?) I don't recall the name but the Vietnamese restaurant we go to serves it- quite good and goes well with Vietnamese food. There's a micro-brewery/pub locally (Mission Springs, for any LowerMainlanders reading this-- go there and ask Tim for his brew of the week) where I know the brewmaster ( he's also my client and yes he's brought us samples) that makes an incredibly tasty chocolate ale. I don't touch the mass produced domestic stuff, but different strokes for different folks; I find it's all so 'homogenized' in taste, and far too 'bubbly' and bland for my liking.

    Now, Snitgirl, on to wine: I've found this absolutely amazing (and unbelievably cheap) Shiraz: Obikwa out of South Africa. I'd never heard of it before I did a taste test at the liquor store; I'd expected it to have a pricetag of $40 or so, but NO! WAAAAAY less! And it makes a wonderful base for my famous sangria.

    Wow, this is eerie: I know someone who writes in your style. Could you possibly, maybe, be one of our strayed OB fold who's come back under a different name in a different country?????

    We must have a boatload of winos on this board. We only got 12-13 people to speak up on the wonders of the fermented hopped delight known as beer!


    Either winos or crackheads!

    You decide! ;)

    Some of us do not discriminate between the hop and the grape. I got reacquanted with a fine Chimay Red this week while in Anchorage as well as a fine German brew that I can't recall the name. Also had a fine Blonde ale from Glacier Brewhouse in Anchorage. :cheers:
