Just wondering what everyone is drinking on this Friday evening.
I'm making it a Shorts Beer night....Nicie Spicie, Strawberry Shortscake, and Noble Chaos (their Oktoberfest).
6 pack of Newcastle Brown Ale, 6pack Blue Moon Honey Moon
How is Honey Moon? I have seen it but I'm reluctant to try it for no apparent reason.
good. not spectacular. but good
how do you find the 5 hr. energy? I have not tried it but am interested in Mgopinion
I've found that it works pretty well in the few times I've used it. I definitely felt alert at a level where I wasn't dragging nor felt like I was hopped up on caffeine. I felt..."normal" -- if that makes sense.
However, I wouldn't recommend mixing it with what had to have been about 15 beers. Actually, I wouldn't recommend drinking 15 beers, period. Unless you have to, in which case, I say drink up.
I drink tons of 5 hour energy during fb season. If I start drinking at noon I usually throw one back around 7pm and it helps me pull through that 7-9pm period before I catch my second wind.
Maybe I'm alone but the first time I tried it, I sweat my ass off. Granted I was driving a U-Haul from South Carolina to Michigan at the time -- so that may have had something to do with it. Other than the sweat factor, I thought it worked fairly well.
Plus the last bottle of my Mt. Pleasant Brewing Company Coal Stokers Blackberry Ale.
I just got a 6 pack mix of Oktoberfest beer: Shorts, Sam Adams, Shiner, Hofbrau, Beck's and Hacker-Pschorr.
Shorts Noble Chaos: Not a big fan, too hoppy for an Oktoberfest style. How do you like it?
One thing is for sure: when Oktoberfest starts hitting the shelves, it's time for the maize and blue to run out of the tunnel and touch the banner.
It is a bit different for an oktoberfest, but still good and easy to drink. A very sessionable oktoberfest.
I agree - drinkable for sure but I think it's better for a winter style. Out of the ones I tried, I always love Sam Adams but can't go wrong with Hofbrau. I also like Ichibod by New Holland -- that should be out soon.
Jaw Jacker from Arcadia is an awesome autumn/pumpkin beer.
Seems way too early for oktoberfests and autumn ales, they seem to make their appearance earlier every year, and I always tell myself..."not until Sept 1, not until Sept 1", but I always buy them when I see them and therefore have to drink them
Carvin Johnson approve of dis message.
made me remember my favorite commercial of ALL TIME (even though I was young when I first saw it)
Also, answering the question in this post... "Water" :( I'm at my parents' house. 11 whole days til I move back to AA... way too long.
are actually probably also ales, not true lagers. It's not cold enough yet for most places to do true oktoberfest beers.
Myself, I'm drinking one of my own 'winterish' ales - brown but not too heavy esp in a cold mug.
Can't get into the pumpkin beers too much...
Smashed Pumpkin Ale from Shipyard Brewing Co. is an absolute MUST for the fall. I love it.
if your going shorts, gotta go with huma or my new favorite stellar ale.
The Huma you can get anytime now, so I'm going with some of their limited bottle releases tonight. I haven't heard or seen the Stellar Ale, what style is it and how is it?
Do you work at Shorts?
Ha, I wish...I could do their books for them.
A strong pale ale, light orange to copper in color somewhere between IPA and Pale Ale. It has a medium body and is well known for its hop profile. Exclusive hop variety is thorough and is the highlight of this ale. Quite pungent to the nose with a creamy spicy grapefruit, and light esters of toasted caramel. When fused onto the tongue, hop oil resin and medium maltiness extrude maximum delight and fulfillment. A compliment to the fine establishment – Trattoria Stella in the Village Commons, Traverse City
i posted what's described on the short's site above but I love me IPAs and pale ales and that is one i really enjoyed
another i recently picked up (from kroger) was Great Lakes Brewery's Commodore Perry, %7.5 stronger IPA. good blend of hops and strength, but not too "plain"
Second to last MBA Course....enjoying some dalwhinnie, which I will pay for tomorrow during the 20 mile run.
Congrats, where are you going?
Is that you?
not ice just regular Molson Canadian.
a fine Canadian lager.
Rifling through a 12 pack right now. Some buddies and I had a great little cocktail hour earlier- Beam Old Fashioneds. Time to back her on down a little.
Enjoying me some Railway City Dead Elephant.
Enjoying me some Railway City Dead Elephant. Canadian...that's okay.
My drink of choice for the night as well!
If you can't tell from my ornery replies on other threads, nothing...yet.
a friends leftover miller lite out of the vortex bottle. its moving time and everyone's too tired to go to the store for more/good beer. though i wish i was drinking some great lakes elliot ness or SA boston lager.
Bell's Pale Ale
1) Belgium style ale, Weyerbacher Merry Monks 9% and awesome.
2) Furthermore Oscura: Coffee grinds in the beer. It's pretty nice.
on the rocks while I am watching the Big Ten preview.
I hope tomorrow is wide open for you then.
a long island ice tea. Pre-mixed from Chi-Chi's. Available at Meijers.
Dad and I are trying to make the summer pass as quickly as possible (waiting for football season, of course) so we are watching Band of Brothers, now on episode 9 "why we fight" and the best part is we are splitting a growler from Liberty Street Brewing Co. In Plymouth. Their IPA is incredible. Great establishment, if anyone hasn't been there it is worth going.
Most of their beers are really good....+1 to their IPA
Yuengling Traditional Lager. Brewed and bottled by Americas Oldest Brewery.
I don't care if you have had the shittiest life ever and no one would ever trade spots with you for a second, the fact that you are drinking Yuengling and I am not makes me so fucking jealous of you right now. Damn you, you bastard!
Oh so tasty! That light amber coloring coupled with a beautiful full body bitter. Pennsylvania's finest!
St. Bernardus abt 12.
Pabst. I have a 5K in the morning so I can't get all sketchy lush supreme.
Just kidding. I don't think my body can handle that stuff anymore after drinking that pretty much exclusively during my freshman year
My drink of choice:
Two hearted: a man's beer
