I've been working with a fair amount Delirium Tremens as of late, those Belgians really work magic.

Drinking a lot of Holsten Pils over the last few weeks. Strong stuff! Great body!

Some friends were saying very good things about Delirium Tremens and some bitch spilled half the bottle as I was walking towards it to pour myself a glass...

Green Bottles Are Dangerous

Pilsner Urquell has done a better job than Beck's in designing their six-pack bottles. Beck's maintains the traditional "caddy" style cardboard containers which are vulnerable to "light spoilage" (aka skunkiness). Wish I had a nickel for every Beck's I've lost....:@ - Now PK - on the other hand, having learned what not to do from Beck's - offers a six-pack like a birdhouse with six chimneys. Very light-proof efficient cardboard carrying case.

Pilsner Urquell is winning me over - One pint at a time.\\

;)

My beer if choice, not surprisingly is a Portuguese beer called Superbock. It's this really tasty, heady, strong beer which since its creation has won 23 consecutive gold medals at the Monde Selection. It was also considered a "Superbrand 2006".

You guys should see about trying it out some day.

Pilsner Urquel was voted best beer in the world in the late 70's. It's a Chek beer, right?
Any ice cold beer is great if you are chasing a shot of Scotch. Amen.;)

I'll have to try it. Back home, we drank tons of "Sagres" particularly around "festa" time. (I'm half Portuguese)

I don't drink much anymore, but when I did, and after trying hundreds of different beers, stouts and ales (literally hundreds, since I worked for a beverage dealer who specialized in imports and micro-brewery beers, all of which we tried as they came in the door) the best ever was, and probably still is, Chimay red label. When people would ask for a recommendation, I would always suggest Chimay and offer a personal (meaning out of my pocket) money-back guarantee. Not one person ever took me up on it. The best. Hands down.

Chimay is indeed good; albeit a tad pricey. Funny how my beer tastes have changed over the years. Fraternity beer in the early 1980s: Busch. Horrible, but not Budweiser, which tastes like a dead dog's bunghole and gives you a worse headache than having screwed one.

After I landed a job, I worshipped Bass. Back in those days, Bass was actually very good. The quality has slipped considerably since. Then, on to Guinness and Murphy's "Good from the Wood." Then, on to Sam Adams Boston Lager, and now, full circle, I actually really like Miller Genuine Draft.

I'm an idiot, aren't I?

Bridgeport IPA, but only in Portland Or. It doesn't travel well, for some reason; I've got it in LA at BevMo and it's lost its characteristic flavor.


When I've been broke, the go-to move is to get a 12 of Miller, chill it to near-freezing, and slam them down one after the other with a Camel Filter chaser.
 
Lately, I'v been switching between Pabst and Old Style. I like any kind of beer, and I'm always willing to try something new. If your'e ever in Milwaukee, check out the Landmark, they have an excellent selection of both bottles and taps.

I have not been disappointed with Chimay. Will you give me money for another one?

FOSTERS MATE!



Contemplating tomorrow

As he lifted the glass
to his lips
contemplating tomorrow,
today was growing
fainter and fainter
and he lowered
his empty glass
to the bar.

Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA

followed closely by Sammy Smith Oatmeal Stout. the big one.
You have hit on two of my very favorites there. Great taste. Samuel Smith Taddy Porter right up in there too. Also like Indica IPA and Carlsberg Elephant. Lately have been switching between two quite good IPAs called Kashmir and Long Hammer, the latter made by Red Hook. (Not usually crazy about Red Hook products but this one is different ... nice, bitter hopsy IPA.)

My favorite beer is the coldest one. It's 97 degrees already today, at 10:30 AM. On the way to 103 or 106. Yay Los Angeles. Um hmm.

Good lord, Michael, stay inside! It was 100 or over four or five days in a row last week, lots of wilted flowers and bitching people! And in North Carolina, hot usually means HUMID too, which sucks royally. So -- yeah, crack a nice cold beer and keep cool.

Yeah, I grew up in St. Paul, which most people think of as encased in ice year-round. It is encased in ice, but only for 6 months of the year, The other six months it's 98 degrees and 80% humidity, with swarms of mosquitoes blocking out the sun. Biblical, I tell ya. And they wonder why there's a bar on every corner.

So I try to remember how fortunate i am to be in the dry heat now. But somehow it isn't very comforting. At least we're not in Iraq wearing 50 pounds of body armor.

Always remember, the heat is theraputic and it makes the beer taste better. I recall drinking like 15 or 20 beers on a very hot day while working with a sculpture class and I didn't even have a buzz. The hot air just sucked the alcohol right out of the can....and to think many Europeans drink their beer warm.

I thought we couldn't afford to buy any body armor for our troops.;)

You want to know what's worse?

No-see-ums. . .

At least you can see the fucking mosquitoes.

With no-see-ums at less than an
1/8th of an inch long it's like. . .

. . . huh? Shit. There's blood dripping down my legs!
