What are you drinking on this Friday?

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).

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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:
