I'm going to a scotch tasting event sponsored by The Macallan. What about the rest of you?
this may be of some local interest
But I sure am jealous!
JWalker Blue, I'm celebrating many things tonight, UM victory and some personal success, great day.
Glengoyne 17 year
20 mile run in the am. But Lagunitas Brown Shugga makes it worth it
Picked up 4 varieties on the liquor store stop on the way home:
All are excellent, and if you haven't tried Surly, I recommend getting to the upper midwest to give it a shot. They have some amazing seasonal varietals - one called "Wet" that is among my favorite beers ever.
And Coffee Bender is a totally different + amazing beer drinking experience.
Later... maybe some Jim Beam if the mood hits me right depending on where I'm at. Grew up in Kentucky / Cincinnati area before going to Michigan, and while it isn't the trendiest bourbon, it is always more than sufficient for me.
Big mistake....I can already feel the headache setting in
Cheers to that. Favorite drink right now is crown and sprite.
I don't have much left, continuing with Miller Lite since the bball game, then switching to Captain. Keeping it classy.
Buffalo Trace to be followed with margaritas then Heineken if I run out of both...
I vote to stick with Buffalo Trace... unless you do run out, I guess.
Every drink bourbon all night long, young man?
I stuck with the Buffalo Trace and let the old lady go for the margs. Now I have to attempt to type with her legs on my lap as she is passed out. Wild Friday I know.
Actually, I have a marg in hand.
Winning over here, over there... now what?
Best Brown Ale
Shiner Dortmunder Spring Ale to start the night and then whatever is left over in my fridge.
Yerba Mate with a twist of swingers party.
Harpoon's UFO White Unfiltered Wheat Beer
Nice choice. Where have you been? I miss those late night threads.
moved from $3 pitchers at charley's to $8 12 packs of moosehead from beer depot.
After I finished my first 40 of Busch, Morris and the boys turned the game around. I've been hitting the 40s hard ever since. Go Blue.
...but have yet to outgrow: 40s of Bud Light.
40s are just so convenient sometimes...especially when I live within a 3 minute walk of a decent liquor store.
You must be a major baller to down those 40s of Bud Light. My personal preference was always OE in the 40 format, with paper bag of course.
and the 'high gravity' OE is one of the best alcohol/$ values around.
Colt 45 is my classy, non hobo drink of choice.
Colt 45 is about as far as I'll go, 40-wise. I spent a night with two bottles of Cobra once at a party, but I'll never do that again.
I rarely do 40's. Since I've been 21 (December '10) I've been buying up as much awesome beer as I can afford. Other than beer I go with Jameson/Crown or tequila for liquor nights.
Pappy Van Winkle's Family Reserve... best bourbon out there, on the rocks.
Up for debate, but I'll give you credit that it is definitely up there.
God bless small batch Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey.
That's what I have in my hand right now.
Had to put down my Three Floyds Alpha King to type this.
My first ever Pilsner - not bad. Switching over to Long Trail Ale later tonight. Smiling like the Cheshire cat after today's W.
Grant's scotch on ice, my every day scotch....if I was celebrating anything it would be the Glenlivet....
Maker's 46 on the rocks. Might have a Two-Hearted later. Probably will drink up some of the wife's Cupcake cabernet too. Why not?
I'm drinkin some White Russians tonight.
Founders Red's Rye, out of my 2010 Founders Mug Club mug, #1050. It's a good night to be alive.
...now refined with a little wine... Central Coast Pinot Noir.
A double IPA from a local micro brew. If you're in NOVA, I suggest you check out Mad Fox. Worth your time.
Prefer Sweetwater to Mad Fox. But both good stuff.
Picked up some Great Lakes Conway's Irish Ale on the way home from work. It's pretty solid.
Fresh off a trip to Guatemala
Ron Zacapa 23 year old Rum. Delish.
Not OT !
Eliot Ness, but jealous of the Macallan tasting.
Oban 14-year, then some Dirty Blonde from Atwater Brewery.
I just finished my bottle of Oban, kinda sad.
on some 4loko
Arbor Brewing Co. IPA
Is truly a great IPA.
Goose Island Honkers Ale. A solid beer and it was on sale at the Jewel - Osco...
Oh, and Michigan is going to the tournament bitches, so I'm going to keep on drinking em!!!
Cheers to Muppets!
1st half: peroni
Halftime: peroni in shower
2nd half: smirnoff neat
At least chilled? I hope?
Although I guess I know some folks who would take something similar straight to a dixie cup, but... just not my thing.
If you chill it, it's no longer considered "neat"
The real test of manhood is drinking Popov neat. It smells and tastes like cleaning products. Low budget apartment living will make you drink just about anything.
With three sons I get to live the Oreo Commercial alot. Wife gets jealous but I tell her we could try for a girl. This usually leads to a comment about the Oreos and my backside. Oh well, at least I have a basketball game to care about tomorrow.
Peter Vella Cabernet Sauvignon.
The finest wine evarrrr.
Dirty Stoli martinis at dinner. Sailor Jerry and Sprite now that I'm home.
Oban, got to love scotch!!!
Blue Moon...........beer is good
MOOSE DROOL Brown Ale. Yes I skied pow all day long and my legs hurt right now.
I'd be drinking Glenmorangie Nectar D'Or. As it is, I can't get good Scotch for $25, so I'm sipping Maker's Mark.
Still one of my favs. But only from the tap or bottle, that canned stuff is wretched.
Would have preferred glenmorangie but I ran out. Already polished off the Pinot noir with dinner. So, with no scotch on hand, I went with a house specialty nightcap. Fresh squeezed Clementine and vodka.
Oberon season begins March 28th and Dominick's opened this week! BOOM more good news!
Like like like.
*Runs to Kayak to check flights to A2 for April*
Might I suggest the weekend of the 15/16th! Braylon's charity hoops game on the 15th and the spring game on the 16th!
Duly noted...I didn't know that Braylon's game was going on but I'm definitely looking forward to the Spring game! We need an MGoTailgate on the 16th...
Didn't think it'd be difficult but tonight it is, as I find myself stuck with beer.
Leine's Limited. I was excited to find it at The Andersons. I'm disappointed, though. There's nothing wrong with it. It's excellent. It's basically like, the best Budweiser in the history of Budweisers. Great, but... uninteresting.
Defaulting to my G&T's for the night
Coors light. Lots of it.
Who the hell told Chicago to celebrate St. Pat's tomorrow? I'm totally unprepared.
for every Friday night. Molson Canadian. Duh.
Tomorrow is whiskies of the world. Just picked up a bottle each of Famous Grouse, Bushmill's and Crown for tomorrow afternoon, plus the neighbor is bringing Woodford and Knob Creek and a single malt. He has very expensive tastes, I ride his coat tails.
Bunch of neighborhood dads comin over for the basketball game, starting a brisket at 8 am, and some chickens a while after that.
Today was good. Saturday will be even better.
We could offer you a bit better than Molson Canadian here in the Great White North...but more power to you if you like it.
It's been our house beer for 20 years. What do you like better?
TMy loyalty has always been to Canadian beer.
and coke for me fellas! Pour me anotha.
