It's a Saturday in July .It's hot outside. That means it's time to start drinking. Let's make it count! I have an Oberon left over from last weekend and after that it's Bud Light for me. As always, Go Blue!
Peppers at 10, which seems low.
Lemonade and water for now, maybe an Atwater Voodoo Vator with dinner
Drinking cold water right now. But as soon as I get home it's Martini Time!!
to go out and split wood.....but DAMN!!
Instead i will sit here in the AC and have a glass of Captain Morgans Long Island Iced Tea.
I had to split wood earlier. Thought I was gonna pass out a few times! haha
Why would one split wood in July? Already gearing up for winter? Seems a bit excessively prepared
Speaking only for myself, you split wood now because you want it to cook in the heat to dry it out.
This wood wont be burned for probably 2 or 3 years at the soonest.
And besides...its not much fun to split wood in Dec. or Feb.
No such thing as "excessively prepared" if you burn wood.
Hawaiian Punch, Fruit Juicy Red.
Nothing like that post-lawn mowing beer. Especially when it's topping 100 outside.
Oskar Blues I'mperial Red before my kids' next. Soccer game.
Adequate hydration is required to put up with this inept soccer coach. Ugh.
when my kids are of age to be in sports, i'm goin gto have to draft a letter to the coach apologizing and warning them in advance that i'll be his/her worse nightmare.
went to go see my little sisters Highschool bball team. had the kids pressing the entire game, they were so gassed that the other team ran right passed them. Then the ofence consisted of 5 girls standing on the perimeter passing the ball around. and shooting a bad 3.
My sister who was there starting SG improvised a couple nice drives to the basket and was pulled aside to stop show boating...
I was fuming.
Drive me nuts. The parents are dumb (except me, of course). The clubs are political.. Sell you one thing till you buy it, then change coaches after you commit....
Thank freaking God for beer.
Currently having a Homebrew Wheat Pale Ale.
going to be grilling soon...(I know its like 200 out side...but wifey wants steaks) so prolly goin g to switch to some Skeeterpee (a really crisp...and deceptively strong lemon wine)
I'm currently drinking water, but dreaming of an ice cold homemade shandy when I get home.
Leinenkugel sunset wheat. Not the best beer, but quite refreshing on a day like today.. Thankfully cooler temperatures are in store for next week (if you reside in the midwest).
Shorts Spruce Pilsner. This shit is right
Blantons on the rocks
Father in laws surprise 50th today. For sure it's outside.. Fuck! Bud heavy Kegs flowin, sloppy joes ready dj spinnin... Save me from this americana bs. AC, Modelo, Strippers now thats what i want for my 50th!
Cozy200 keepin it real
Bar Baseball downtown GR.
what the heck is bar baseball? I live in GR and this intrigues me.
You all dress up in baseball gear, get matching t-shirts (we had bright yellow) and walk around to 9 bars (9 innings). Bring a Sharpie and write your score on the back of the shirt - ours has all the bars on the back.
1 run: light beer
2 runs: heavy beer (5% ABV or higher) or wine
3 runs: mixed drink or girly shot
4 runs: straight shot
Lose runs if you spill your drink or spill someone else's drink or fall at any point of the night.
I'm drinking in the sweet taste of the Tigers being over .500, and another victory over the Royals.
Who's the loser downvoting this thread?
Someone did it to a few other threads too. Lame.
Funny upvotes for everyone, then. Especially Herm (Everyone except those I already voted for, and myself, that is)
I am confined to water and soda for the time being, for as much as I would like to break out a bottle of Strongbow cider right now, it might look bad if Detroit Edison employees were seen drinking on company property. However, I do fully intend to have some Strongbow later.
Yes, I am actually dispatching people to outages as I type on MGoBlog.
Soda??? Come on man it is Pop.... this is Michigan fergodsakes!!!!!
I still call it pop despite the looks I get down here in the South.
It'll be a cold day in hell before I ask for a soda/Coke.
A mix of IPAs, catching up on the news since I was away on vacation for the past week or so. Essentially deadening the constant pain from the sunburn I'm slowly recovering from. The one time you should listen to your wife is about sunscreen.
Glad you're back Herm. We were wondering where you went
Ok. Who's downvoting Herm? Seriously people..
Lov ya Herm and it’s not the booze talking… why don’t we say this more often??
From Munich. One of just a handful of decent beers here in Switzerland. Would love a Sierra Nevada or Dale's.
Oberon now, Pabst later.
Oberon to Pabst, that's an interesting choice.
Smart choice, sir. I have an uncle who swears by PBR. You know, one of "those" guys. But, because of it, Pabst always has had a soft spot in my heart.
"I don't always drink shitty beer. But when I do, I drink PBR."
(I'm at work and way too lazy ot make that into a meme.)
That is what it has for you. Jk lol
Maybe it's just me... I've tried PBR on draft and it's not that bad, but in a can it tasted awful!
On a trip through Milwaukee, a few friends and I stopped at what was the Pabst Brewery. It's just a beer hall now with a gift shop and a tour, but it was pretty cool. Naturally, I had to have a Blue Ribbon on draft and it wasn't bad.
Milwaukee is a pretty cool town. It's owned by Miller, but it has a lot of beer history which is pretty cool. And they have a Cheesecake Factory, which means I didn't eat for three days after I left.
Sams Summer Ale along with some homemade guacamole and chips
Water and reading Catholic history/theology at the moment. Later I will get started on MOAR ESSAYZ and maybe buy a sixer from my local gas station after that.
is finding Great Lakes in even the shittier gas stations. Well, I guess certain Ohio girls top that, but they're rare.
The local station I had in mind actually expanded their liquor selection recently which makes me very happy!
UFC on later and just left the beach down here in Florida. I am so glad I got to move here. Grey Goose, soda water, and lime on the side coming up for the Silva fight. Eu quero que o Silva ganhe!
Summer Shandy, been putting these down like water lately.
I was like that the past few weekends. Switched back to Bud Light today...cheaper.
Heineken, Because it really is a thing in the jersey shore.
Sippin' on my own creation of fresh strawberry juice and lemon with a tad bit of honey and sugar while playing borderlands after an extremely intense workout of running hills in 105 degree weather, Nothin like it.
Sippin on a high life at the Dave Matthews Band tailgate in Wisconsin. At least it isn't 100 degrees like yesterday
I'm gonna catch their show at DTE on Tuesday. Such an amazing band. No better live show on the planet! Also, looking forward to a quality, pre-show tailgate.
love playing bags aka cornhole as much as I do? Best toss game ever invented. Goes great with some brewskis.
I could play cornhole from sunup to sundown with beer on ice. I agree.
Two Miller Lites gone.
Getting ready to watch Silva destroy Sonnen and Forrest smash Tito.
with Oberon, then a Snaked IPA, gonna have a Belgo and switch to the quonic. Its too hot to be drinking beer.
Lies. It's never too hot.
Lots of water. It has been 104 in Central Illinois (when we weren't in the car). Just dropped 20 degrees when we headed north 30 miles though. Weird. Go Lake Michigan, I assume it gets credit.
Currently: Powerade - Sour Melon
Later: Founders - Dirty Bastard
Two Hearted from a keg. I'm at an outdoor reception/cookout and need to become numb to the heat.
Do they sell it in Alabama? When I lived in Michigan I was too young to legally drink. So it was always the cheap stuff. I want to try this summer shandy everyone raves about.
I've got 2 Moosehead Lagers left from last night to get me started. Then I'm off to find something else. I will keep everyone updated.
and 5 Hour Energy. I don't drink anymore really. Waiting for my early access of NCAA 13 to download.
I have a 5 hour in my pocket...trying to pick the right time to down it...probably soon.
My son who is 11 was Michigan and I was ND. We played under the lights. He kicked my butt 33-14. Desmond Morgan is a beast in that game, he had 3 ints. ND's QB was a black guy #5. Michigan's defense is really good. I got revenge in the next game when I was Florida St. and my son was Miami. I won 21-7
Vodka and Coke Zero. It tastes good. I am a pussy. Fuck you! ;-)
never admit that shit.
I'm ashamed to share the west side of Michigan with you.
Bud light keg, vodka, and rum
Now sharing a sixer of Molson's with a friend. I plan to play Settlers of Catan and hang out with the boise for the rest of the night.
On the rocks.
Got some free Blue Moon for helping the future brother-in-law move some furniture . Grilling up some burgers and asparagus for dinner. Watching baseball now, about to switch over to Return of the Jedi.
Victory Prima Pils...I was told it was a quality Pilsener alternative to the mass market counterparts.
It's OK, but not worth the price premium. Seems like their differentiating feature is to throw more hops at it, which mostly makes it a poor substitute for an IPA.
Sam Adams Noble Pils is pretty good, as is Karl Krauss' Imperial Pilsner.
I'm a little late to the party, but went with sailor and sprite on the boat today. Have been drinking beer since Tuesday so needed to change it up. I love holiday weeks up north
Just got home from a afternoon at the beach in Ventura, Ca with the Fam. Kids are crashed, FB photos posted....time for a glass of Chimay Grande Reserve. Belgiumy goodness.
Wondering what the hell's keeping Laquon Treadwell. The nerve if this kid not making a life changing decision in the convenient time frame of a complete stranger.
Watching a free stream of the ufc fight, I don't watch many if these anymore. Hopefully silva v sonnen will be good.
I promised an update. I went with Molson. Lots of Molson.
Ended up getting drunk on Stone Arrogant Bastard, New Holland's Dragon's Milk, and Lagunitas "Lucky 13" which is new to me, but okay. I'm treading new water here, I usually don't drink alcohol without friends about, but I actually got pretty drunk tonight.
I work now at a gourmet grocery store (not ideal nor my hope for the future, needless to say) with a great beer selection, and I love beer, so any suggestions will be taken to heart and tried in the future.
