Someone asked for a thread about how gorgeous Gorgeous Al is; here you go.
(My goodness, that is a gorgeous human being.)
Discuss Al, baseball, Red Wings preseason hockey, fine beverages, or any other topic that doesn't belong elsewhere.
lager and my guiness it's a shame to the name.
Shoot I was hoping to try that. I'm gonna have to hope that you just hate black lagers. Have you ever had McSorley's?
You Should give the foreign extra stout a go.
I'm at work for another 2+ hours, so until I can get home, I'll have to rely on photos of Gorgeous Al Borges and Denard smiling to intoxicate me.
5:45 on the east coast and already doing work. I approve, just make sure you're prepared for tomorrows game.
Going down to State tonight for the CMU game tomorrow. We will see what my spartan friends have in store for the night
You're not going to hear me say this often....
Staying sober tonight. gonna go act like a drunk fool at professor thom's tomorrow.
Drunk from wine at CS department function. Good start to the night
I have a friend coming over tonight to celebrate his birthday this weekend. He'll be staying the night in our guest room so we can watch the game tomorrow morning. This good friend happens to be an SDSU alum, so the game should be interesting.
Does you friend know about the tremendous world of San Diego microbrews.
Yes, he was born and raised there and has told me all about it. We actually live just up the street from a Gordon Biersch, which we frequent, er, frequently.
This guy actually likes Michigan, he was accepted out of high school but his parents (who are Greek immigrants) wouldn't let him leave San Diego for school and he ended up at SDSU. Since then he's been a huge Michigan fan anyway.
Didn't realize it was a SoCal thing. I discovered it in Hawaii at a UH volleyball match. Those Wahine know how to do it up right! The restaurant is pretty nice too. Have you had the garlic fries? Hot damn I might have to visit there tonight (the one in greater Denver that is).
Yeah, GB is from San Diego. They have multiple GBs in both Dodger Stadium and Petco Park in SD. The garlic fries are the bomb diggity.
Wish I could spell but damn my wife loves these crazy drinks.
Oktoberfest in GR tonight so I will be drinking Erdinger and Hofbräu Oktoberfest all night. PROST!
on the Erdinger. Love that stuff.
Hate to one up you, but I just woke up after a night of drinking at the Oktoberfest in Munich, Germany. Hit the Spaten and Hacker-Pschorr "tents". What an amaizing time. Anyone who likes bier and fun has to make the pilgrimage. One more trip down before I fly home Sunday morning. Go Blue From Germany!
I hate you. Haha...my family went last year and raved about it. It's on my bucket list!
Jameson and Sprite.
Sam Adams Oktoberfest followed by some Woodford Reserve later
Incidentally -- does Sam Adams make a bad beer? If they do, I haven't had it.
Ughh! And my number one beer in the world is Boston lager
I've seen that one in the various sampler packs I've purchased, but I'm not sure I have actually ever had one. As Tom Hanks said in Big, "I'll stay away from her, then."
and Cranberry Lambic is just awful....Can't wait for the winter pack with the Old Fiziwig Ale in it though!
White Birch Brewing Hop Session Ale. Pretty good amber, I am impressed.
McCallums single malt on the rocks. Keeping it classy this evening.
Mr Lahey is the liquor.
Green Flash IPA. Right now it is my favorite.
very topical for this weekend.
I kind of feel like a traitor ,so maybe when I get home I'll try not to drink a SD beer. For me it is so easy and convinient to buy these good SD microbrews. It is harder to find the Michigan microbrews around here. There is a bar in downtown SD that sometimes has the Jolly Pumpkin stuff on tap, but that is about it.
whisky and vernors, best drink there is
Tussin and grape Nehi, neat. A/k/a "the usual."
It takes the edge off of things, after a stressful day.
herradura and cointreau margaritas. but not yet, since it's only 3:20 on the west coast.
Is herradera? I have a rather large bottle of Cointreau in front of me and I'm trying to decide what to do with it
as for what to do with the cointreau, i would advise drinking it, but lemme know if you came up with a better solution.
Köstritzer down at the Brauhaus.
Anyone up for German fare (beer) in old Philadelphia is more than welcome to join me.
Just kidding, staying cheap and Canadian with Molson.
might watch the game. Probably get a bunch of drinks on the cheap.
Just cracked the first bottle of two sixers brought back from my buddy's trip to the EMU game last weekend. It's better appreciated and savored when not readily available...
Bought one if those Miller lite keg things that you keep in the fridge. $19.99 for it. Went home and did the math and it only holds 16 beers. I could have gotten a case for $18.99. Thats 8 less beers for a buck more!
I'm so stupid.
Btw, would rather drink much better beer, but have to go low card to avoid a diabetic coma.
Considering making a run over to Half-Acre to get a growler of Sticky Fat. If I'm too lazy it'll be DFH Punkin Ale and/or homebrew.
How is Punkin? I feel the need to try it because I love basically everything DFH makes, but it sounds...odd.
is pretty weird but delicious at the same time.
I like it- then again I like most DFH. If you can find it, I'd say pull the trigger and buy, you won't be disappointed.
It's the greatest fall brew hands down...had some on draft from their brew pub a while back...it's epic
It's definitely not spicy like a lot of other pumpkin ales. It's good, and even better when they mix it with 90 minute at the brewpub.
Pako's IPA from the Snake River Brewing Company. Gotta take it kind of easy for the 10 AM MT start tomorrow.
