Also, 10th mgouser to post here chooses what I drink. GO...
this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
a little H2O on the rocks...trying not to be TOO hungover for tomorrow!
Hopslam and watching some puck.
I'm samesies! OMG!
Same as last weekend.
An Imperial IPA that I brewed from scratch with a couple budies of mine.
Drinking that while watching the '98 Hockey Championship and then Michigan vs. Northern.
Irish coffee Monster with Kahlua and Bailey's for now. Honkers Ale when the game starts up.
$10 box of Franzia. Shits getting real tonight.
correct answer is Absopure, the official bottled H2o of UM.
I purchase 11,200+ bootles yearly and make people in Ohio drink it.
You know those bottles can be turned into batteries? cool shit. plz recycle.
goin to watch a friend's band play a show in Milwaukee, so probably some excellent microbrews from Lakefront Brewery or Milwaukee Brewing Co.
swan flu, im free gb and have tried Lakefront brews plenty of times. Very good choice. Have you ever tried their brewery tour? Pretty fun time
their brewery tour is one of the best times you can have anywhere. especially if you go on a friday and get the fish fry.
I won the bunghole last time I went.
I think while I'm watching the wings and Michigan play I'll drink a Tasman Bay IPA. I'm currently at the fort street brewery in Lincoln Park, MI.
more enjoyable later.
The Meijer in Taylor, MI occasionally sells this bit of Wallonian goodness....
Zing Zang bloody mary mix, Bakon vodka, and a bit of Clamato to thin it out. Awesome.
Flying to Chicago right now and then driving. But darnn that Leffe looks good.
And maybe some Bushmills Black Bush and a cigar later.
Thinking about trying bud light platinum. Friends say its pretty good, so ill test it out tonight.
I don't know what you usually drink, but I thought it was pretty damn sugary for a Budweiser. You can also taste more of the alcohol than you can in a lower-price-range beer, but that was the part I liked. I had them on special for $2 and would do it again at that price.
Makes sense being plantium is 6% alcy, while the usually "light" beer is around 4.2%. I hate to say it because im from wisconsin, but I prefer budweiser to miller. No idea why, but Miller products give me the biggest hangovers.
I agree; If I'm going cheap I usually drink Bud Heavy.
The same thing the past few weeks: small batch bourbon and coke. Very tasty/
I am the only one who thinks that North Peak beers kinda suck?
EDIT: Dammit, tried to reply to j24sailr
I don't think they are bad. I also don't think they are good.
Evan Wiliams Honey on the rocks!
In Founders right now drinking a better half. Be jealous.
I'm jealous. Hopefully, I'll be able to get some next weekend when I'm in for the Winter Beer Festival
that it already went off tap? Have you had it from the bottle too? If so, notice a difference?
Diet. At bowling fundraiser for my travel softball team. I can't get too crazy in front of the girls.
And Red Wing streaming hockey. Joey looks good and the Mule scores.
I found Alex Kozan's letter of intent, it was in Jimmy Hoffa's briefcase.
like Kozan's LOI will ever be found.
Alex Kozan is actually the Lindbergh Baby.
Some Blue...after all it is Hockey Weekend
How is a hockey team's placement in a particular regional established? I want to know what the chances of Michigan going to the Green Bay regional (since I live in Wisconsin and it would be the only way I could see M hockey this season in person).
Just a suggestion, either go to the other thread and ask CenterIce, or wait until you see m_fan_in_ohio and ask him. Brian mentions a two seed on the front page, but nothing else.
There is an article called bracketology each week that describes the seeding process in detail.
Bell's Winter White for me.
Any suggestions? All I really know is to throw in some baileys and whiskey.
Atwater Brewery Vanilla Java Porter! Delicious.
If she wants coffee, go with coffee and Frangelico. If she wants beer, go with a Short's Cup of Joe Stout (if you're in Michigan). Either way, you can't go wrong.
Built my own sixer with a couple of Hopslams, Sam Adams Cherry Wheat, Blue Moon Spring Blonde, Michelob Amber Bock, and Dragon's Milk. I just tried Hopslam for the first time and wow! That's all I can say. Thank you guys for putting me up on this.
Couple Lagunitas IPAs that somehow survived the week since the last drinkin' thread. Laying low tonight, but tomorrow I'm gonna run out to the beer store and find some new beer to drink. Suggestions welcome (I'm into IPAs these days).
what state do you live in? I was REALLY into IPAs a few years ago, even did a blind taste test of about 20 IPAs
My #1 rated IPA was Stone Ruination IPA
#2 (and more cost effective) was Great Lakes Brewery Flaming River IPA. really good
either of those will put you in hop heaven.
If you're looking for an IPA that you've NEVER experienced before, try to find Lakefront Brewery Black IPA. It is an IPA if it had been raised by a sith lord. it is dank as hell. really good stuff.
I'm in Northern Virginia - there are a few really good beer stores around so it's pretty easy to find anything with decent distribution. I actually had the Ruination not too long ago, but I drank it right after I finished a pint of an incredible double IPA from Firestone Walker, so I don't think it got a fair shake from my taste buds. I'll have to try it again.
FWIW, my top three IPAs are Two Hearted, Dogfish 60 Minute, and this Lagunitas. Any of those I could drink until I was pear-shaped.
Two hearted was my #3 IPA when I did my taste test. definately top notch beer. I must admit that we diverge on dogfish head and Lagunitas, but hey, to each his own. Happy drinking.
For sure get the Ruination again. Was it the Double Jack or Union Jack from Firestone? Both are very good! Do you guys get Green Flash in VA? The Green Flash West Coast IPA is tops if you can- im not sure if they distribute there or not same for Bear Republic Racer 5.
Another one to try if you can get it is Jai Alai from Cigar City down in Tampa, FL. I think they do a lot on the east coast.
