OT: Anyone drinking anything good tonight?

Submitted by justingoblue on January 15th, 2011 at 12:22 AM

It's late on a Friday (well Saturday now I guess), and though I'm trying my hardest to get the girlfriend up to date on South Park (ugh she's on season four) she's fallen asleep with the promise of an early alarm clock. So here I am with my beer and missing the open threads of just a few nights ago.

My MGoDrink for the moment is Goose Island's Honkers Ale. First night with it, and it is not disappointing. Anyone else having anything noteworthy? Or have enough of something to make it noteworthy?

true story, my gf went to florida and during hurricane katrina for some reason all/some of the trucks that were supposed to be going to louisiana were re-routed to gainesville.  they sold beer for $5 (it was around that, shes alseep so i can't confirm the price but it might have been less) a 24 pack (bud/bud light) and the trucks went like water in the desert.  Our friends bought enough to make a throne in their garage, there are pics of them sitting in it

I was shocked to see how quickly you got freed earlier, FuManBlue. I gave you my three (or maybe four?) plus ones I could on the thread, but god damn. I remember seeing one of your comments at like +125. Truly incredible.

PS- Pick up any good beer (or wine or liquor) in Bolivia?

I told a joke I had heard on the radio earlier that week on the Norte Dame thread.  I'm guessing Brian deemed that the joke was inappropriate, which I agree it was.  I was never able to see the reaction to the joke, but I'm guessing it wasn't good.  I signed on again later that night and notice that I had to enter CAPTCHAs on every post.  

That is basically the story about how I got pwned.

Since you seem to know your way around Goose Island.

Have you tried their Bourbon Stout? I was back home over the holidays, but at $22 a four-pack, I figured I'd better have some damn good advice before buying it.

On the other hand, it's like 13% abv. So at the very least:

Budweiser= 5

GI Bourbon Stout= 13

1BS=2.66 Budweiser (4BS=10.64B=feeling pretty damn good)

Although if it's anything like their other beers, that'd be an abomination.
