I, personally, am drinking the leftovers from all of the tailgates. Basically it's just the cheap beers bought to play beer pong. It's a mix of Bud Light, Blue Light, and Molson. Not great quality, but it'll get me through the Wings and Championship games. For those of you who may have stopped by the Jager Yearbook(my tailgate) thanks for stopping by. Let's root for a Georgia loss tomorrow and a Sparty loss as well.
OT: Friday night open/ what are you drinking thread?
watching the Wings and drinking some Blue Light...no complaints
Gin from a cup with ice cubes. I'm 23 and it's been a bad week.
I am drinking a mason jar of Apple Pie.
is SICK. In a good way. I may not fully remember trick or treating this year because of it.
Yeti Imperial Stout. I've had the bottle for a while, can finally enjoy it.
Latte. When I get home it'll be scotch.
two parts ginger ale. one part makers mark. dash of bitters. lemon.
Watching Oregon til they cover the spread, hopefully by halftime. don't forget a Baylor loss would also ease the mind come sunday
After reading many of the so-called experts, they think that even with a win Baylor would still remain behind Michigan. Although, you are correct, that a Texas win would ease the mind.
Deciding to not read a page of corps this semester was a wonderful idea
I am not familiar with your usage of corps.
I did not read a page in my corporations book all semester and now have to learn it all.
At the bar, Labatt mugs for $2.50. I figure why not?
Arbor Brewing Sacred Cow IPA. Represent Represent.
Water and cough syrup. :-(
we need healthy wolverines!
It's my birthday tonight, so Fat Tire out of cans and megangoblue has some Funky Llama Chardonnay.
It's me and the girlfriend and we have three liters of wine and a twelve-pack. I'd say we'll push that limit tonight.
Ongoing battle against the seasonal cold. Winter stress, nothing new. On the plus side, all the mosquitoes are gone, and it hasn't rained for almost two days!
Was lucky enough to get my hands on a bottle of Founder's Canadian Breakfast Stout. Drinking that and watching the Wings/Pac-12 championship
SN Celebration Ale for me tonight.
Something out of the Sam Adams winter sampler I traditionally treat myself to after Thanksgiving. Since I always save the best for last (that is, the Winter Lager and the Old Fezziwig) but I want one of the specialties, I'll put it to a vote. First to two wins. Should I have the coffee stout, the Holiday Porter, or the Chocolate Bock?
I bought that sampler this year. Didn't care for either of those three -- I wish they would sell the Winter Lager and Old Fezziwig by themselves.
That said, Chocolate Bock.
Scotch, ginger ale, and pain.
Extreme home makeover ..... Zimas with a jolly rancher. (geen apple, yum!)
Drinking Two Hearted and smoking cheebah. As is so often the case...
trader joe's vintage ale
Old Overholt on the rocks.
I'm drinking the greatest winter brew known to man...Troegs Brewery's Mad Elf.
On a side note...I had lunch at Grizzly Point (is that right?) brewery on Friday after Thanksgiving, ordered the heavy scottish ale...delicious, I highly recommend for those lucky enough to live near Ann Arbor.
I like that place too, also good food.
The food was great...This time in Ann Arbor was the first time I really walked around on a non-gameday type atmosphere...made me enjoy the city even more than before.
Jim Beam and Coca-Cola(TM)..
..with a cheeseburger on the side.
Such a wonderful civilization we live in!
God bless America.
Founders BC Centennial IPA.
New Glarus Fat Squirrel, Founders Backwoods Bastard, Crown Royal, Short's Ginger in the Rye.
You in Wisconsin?
new glarus doesn't travel far ... although I gotta give it to sconsin, it's like a playground of craft beers.
Yeah, I heard demand in Wisconsin had increased so dramatically they had to stop supplying Minnesota and Illinois a bit ago to keep up with the demand. Though that was a year or two ago so I think things have changed since then.
Friend lives in Milwaukee and brought me a sample pack back when he was in town for Thanksgiving. Got a six pack of Apple Ale, and then some Spotted Cow, Fat Squirrel, and a big bottle of Belgian Red.
Rum and eggnog. 'Tis the season.
Yippy Kay Aye... Rye Ale with a lttle pepper..yummy Cali Beer.
Had bells tasting then some pequods pizza (my first from the Chicago staple) I think some rogue juniper pale and perhaps some black chocolate stout from Brooklyn for later
and Jager bombs
Started with my Hoptimus Prime IPA and then switched to a concoction I like to refer to as Bastard Child (IPA/Amber hybrid).
I too am diseased at the moment, but I figure the best way to combat the buggers it to kill 'em with alcohol.
Woodford Reserve at O'Hare. This should cost me somewhere in the range of $6,000.
Recovering from an injury. Not as fun as it sounds. Not sure how people get hooked on this crap, it makes me nauseated.
Yuengling Traditional Lager, a new arrival here in The Worst State Ever.
yuengling black and tan... heyyyooo!!
Woodinville Whiskey Co. White Dog whiskey aged in my oak charred oak barrel.
Just water tonight. Had a Coca Cola earlier.
It's grind time with finals coming up and papers due so no keg Natty for me tonight. Instead i splurged a little and have a sixer of Sam Adams Cherry Wheat
With that said^ I could use some suggestions for beers to try. I'm not a big fan of stouts or incredibley hoppy beers, but on occasion I do like to deviate from the norm and get a "fancy" six pack. Any suggestions for a younger drinker would be appreciated.
This stuff is nothing special, but try Franzikaner Weissbier. Also, even cheaper, Smithwicks. Relatively cheap and they might be up your alley.
Is that something that I could find around a liquor store in Ann Arbor? Obviously a little more high end liquor store
Smithwick's (note: pronounced smit-icks) is really mainstream, you can find it in any grocery store. Franzikaner, not as much.
Since you're in Ann Arbor, I'll let you in on the best-kept secret: The Wine Seller next to Carpenter Brothers near the Kroger on Plymouth Road. They have the best beer selection in Ann Arbor, and the employees there are VERY helpful, and help recommend a beer. The prices are fair, and they even have "make-your-own-6-pack" where each beer is $1-$2. Definitely a great place to try out different beers and get some "professional" opinions. Make sure to block out a good 20 minutes to spend there, though, because they have literally hundreds of beers, and you'll want to look at them all :)
Weihenstephaner and Hoegaarden are two of my favorite beers.
I suggest going to Hiller's in Ann Arbor. They have a pretty good beer selection. Sofie is also pretty good. It's made by Goose Island and is kinda fancy (as far as beer goes)
Black and Tan on draft!
Bell's Kalamazoo Stout and some sherry before I go to bed. Only Michigan brewed beer for me.
Are you a Michigan Frasier Crane?
Aged Jack Daniels.... Aged, bitches. Aged.
company Christmas party tonight - the best beer available was Foster's in a can. That ran out, reduced to Miller Lite, with the Mexicans in Shipping. They didn't like it either.
Dear God, thank you for Bella Bistro and their Knob Creek to wash that swill out of my mouth forever.
Funny thing - Hispanics HATE whisky. Broad generalization I know, but based on a 5 person sampling, they prefer tequila. In a blue bottle.
I live in Nebraska and the micro brews here are shit. I don't want a Bud, so just water. Maybe a Jack and touch of coke on the rocks tomorrow. I need some two hearted ale please!
Bells is available in NE.
Cheap vodka. Cheap beer. Anything to help drown out the sound of a gf on her period. God help me.
Also, I am drinking it the wrong way. Can't do anything right.
You need to go chill with some friends and get away from that debbie downer.
CC and Dr. Pepper. I seem to drink that slower than Jack and Dr. Pepper. Oh that's right, that's because CC sucks. Oh well, I have at least 1000 ml left. Time to get busy.
With a Four Loko chaser.....watermelon.
Just bought my first bottle of The Glenlivet 18 year old. HIGHLY satisfied and HIGHLY recommended.
two heinekens at the b-day party, two bottles of Sake with dinner, one pitcher of Sangria and one blue moon...time for bed!
