 I just polished off a 24 of PBR and I feel nice and buzzed.

Proper Job, which I had never tried before, is also highly recommendable. Lovely hoppy IPA with citrus bouncing around like an excitable puppy and a really nice, light but firm flavour. Broadside remains the once and future king ESB. Malty, fruity, dark and chewy. By far and away my favourite bottle, and the cask brewed to a slightly different recipe with a slightly less malty flavour is my favourite pub pint. At 6.3% the bottle is above my threshold for a session, though. 

 

 

 

 

And Fraid, I'm really no expert at this. The advantage of drinking real ales is that you get the chance to experience a lot more flavour, and drinking a decent variety of them can't help but improve your discernment. England has had a real ale movement for about forty years or more, way before the modern craft trend, so throughout my drinking life there has been the same opportunity my forefathers had to sup something more substantial than the latest local knock off of European lager. Saying that, though, a decent pilsner on a summer's evening will also put a smile on my face, and I even appreciate the odd Budweiser, Red Stripe and Heineken (Dutch style, as opposed to the muck they thankfully now used to sell over here).

What I'm currently drinking.

post #554 of 747
Ahhh, Heineken. Nice fruity bouquet with a very complementary aftertaste. Not many places have it. Especially in a can. You have some specialty beer place near you?
post #555 of 747

 My local supermarket has a six pack shop that sells craft beers, but the can I'm currently drinking I bought at normal six pack shop/ sandwich joint.

post #556 of 747


Wow. Kereru AT-AT Imperial Pilsner. Doesn't taste like any Pilsner I've had before. Certainly not a 10.2% one. It's almost like a fortified wine or something. Thick, but not syrupy. Not bitter, and leaves a really sweet aftertaste.

Damn fine.

Apparently called AT-AT because it will stomp all over you.

1921 anejo. Oooooo . . . I think I really like this one. It has a rather nice green pepper finish. No chaser. I'm bummed, after this it's back to the well water for a bit.

After an 8 hour drive turned into a 10 because fuck you PA Turnpike, I sit in a hotel room in Philly, my mind filled with unfulfilled road rage but my belly filled with dirt-cheap Yuengling.

I'm toasted. Met up with my dad and cousin for dinner and beers over game 6 of the NBA Finals and the USA/Ecuador game. I don't know if it's a good thing or bad, but the owner of the brewery came over and let us know that it's been the talk of the staff that we haven't been around as much lately.

Anyway, we enjoyed some new concoctions, including an IPA named for Dr. Peter Venkman, as well as a revival of their stellar house Scottish Ale. Love that place. I wish they had need of someone for marketing and design.

A stout and a porter for the night. Tempted to crack one now... (the sun is over the yardarm and it is a Friday...)
post #564 of 747
I just picked up this beer....

....and I don't even know what I think.


Also, Wed night I introduced my gf to the shower beer. After mocking me, she admitted it was definitely one of the better ways to enjoy a beverage.

Shower beers are great!

 

It's a mixed drink night.  7-Up, cranberry juice, and blueberry vodka.  It needs a name...

I'd think a 'Chud' would need Midori or chartreuse for color.

I think "The Chud" might just be straight Absinthe.

The Violet Beauregarde. Serve it with fresh blueberries dropped into the glass.

It's a quarter after one here in AZ, and I'll be hung over when I wake up. I had friends come in from Tucson and Vegas today and it was the first gathering of such friends. Went off without a hitch, and we hit two breweries in the neighborhood. This would all be fine and well, if not for the fact that I spent the day moving into a new place in 110 degree weather.

So I'm on the back-end of a nice buzz, had to build a bed before I could relax, and now I'm on CHUD before falling asleep, knowing full well the horrors that await me, come sunrise.

Pray for me.

Bit late, but it was indeed a shitty hangover. I ended up spending the day drinking water and watching the new Voltron on Netflix (which is incidentally really good).

 

In more recent news, New Belgium's CollaBEERation pack sucks. Seriously, what a cool idea that opened the door for a lot of breweries to not impress... too bad. New Belgium in general feels like they've been slipping lately, though. Newer beers like Heavy Melon are feeling underdeveloped and lackluster. I wonder if they're feeling the need to compete with all of the massive amounts of breweries opening these days. They seem to be losing focus and making weak beers instead of focusing on all the great beers that made them huge.

Drinking Molson, using my Pittsburgh Penguins bottle cooler, eating shrimp and listening to The Killers. Its a relaxing night at Casa Da Chaz. #IgotsoulbutI'mnotasoilder

post #579 of 747

What's Molson like down there? Is there just the one kind?

post #580 of 747

To my knowledge there is just one.

post #581 of 747
Huh. Molson is a huge deal in Canada with dozens of brands and varieties. Wonder which flavour they put in that plain bottle for US export? Maybe it's Molson Export Ale, just to be logical.
post #582 of 747

In RI, there is the standard 5.0% ABV white label "Molson Canadian" lager, and the black label "Molson XXX" at 7.3%.

Where are you going? Unfortunately you're too late for the London CHUD meet up. Nick bailed weeks ago. I see you're flying Air NZ, I hear they're pretty good.

In New Jersey. Air NZ are top quality (thank fuck given how much I have to fly)

They're a bit more generous in the Tom Bradley lounge

Ah, you're at Newark Airport. Poor guy.

Next time you're near (in) NYC, pm me.

What the fuck are these whiskeys? For babies? My grandma used to give me more for my toothaches.

Oktoberfest Chiswick cost a tenner to enter, so....fuck that. Popped into a local. Unfortunately the Apple and Pears Cider I bought looks like a couple of pints of piss.

There's nothing wrong with a good, high-end bourbon, my friend.  Nothing at all.

 

 

It should be noted that I despise scotch or rye whiskey.  But a good, aged bourbon?  Mmmmmm.

post #591 of 747
I've never been a very discerning drinker.

Usually it's just tequila shots and Dos Equis..

I could be wrong, but I think Stelios is querying the amount of Whiskey Andy consumed, not the fact that he consumed it. If so I agree wholeheartedly.

That reminds me, when the Nunz was in town he grumbled that everybody in the States thought he was gay as fuck for drinking JD and Coke all the time. Not to worry, now Andy has his back.

Yes, I just thought of that.

Whats amazing to me, is how much the addition of even a couple of drops of water can change the taste of a whisky.

I tried this Taiwanese whisky and it was absolutely vile. Put in a couole of drops of water (literally put my finger in a glass of water and flicked it into the whisky) and it became amazing. Mellow and smooth. Amazing difference.
post #597 of 747
I don't drink a whole lotta scotch. I hit the whiskey sometimes but I usually mix it with Coke like a heathen. Never tried the water thing. That might just turn the whole experience around for me.

I did receive an $800 bottle of Jameson once as a gift. Never had any booze like that before or since. It was just the best. Like drinking silk..

Yep, it can make all the difference.

Where the hell do you find women who enjoy whiskey, much less profess themselves an enthusiast?

 

The women here in Arizona won't even drink IPAs.
