What are you going to drink tonight?

Submitted by Hotel Putingrad on September 3rd, 2015 at 11:42 AM

Approaching the noon hour, just wondering what everyone's beverage of choice will be tonight to usher in the Harbaugh era? I'm generally a beer guy on game days but might have to kick it up a notch for tonight's special occasion.

Or should we abstain so as not to dull our senses?

What say you? Or should I say, what ales, you?

I actually tried FairLife whole milk for the first time after the whole kid at the press conference thing and liked it as far as milk goes. Stripping out 50% of the sugar and all of the lactose definitely makes a difference.

If I had a young family I probably wouldn't be too happy paying $3-4 for 1.5L though...

1) It's 130 degrees today.

2) Have to be fully functinal at work at 6:30 Friday morning.

3) I got hammered at a game as a student and remembered NOTHING about it.  I swore to myself that I'd never drink during games again to maximize my (slipping) memory and enjoyment.

I may adopt this policy for the season as well.

 

I kind of stopped enjoying Oberon over the years because it just didn't taste as good as I remembered it being on tap, out of  a mason jar at Dominick's.  Howeva, my wife picked up a 12-pack of Oberon in cans the other day, and I can't believe what a difference it makes.  Night and day.  I'm hooked all over again.  Thus, while the weather remains warm, Oberon from a can it will be.

This is a great question.  I just came down with a cold yesterday so not thinking beer would be the best for me.  I'll be at BWW for the game because I don't have FS1 so it is likely that alcohol would be consumed.  Maybe some whiskey?

Boilermakers. I've got pint bottles chilling, and a large bottle of scotch to add to my glass. I'm so fired up, I've been waiting for this since the 05 Rose Bowl. We're back, baby!

It just takes a lot to get me drunk. Not trying to toot my horn or anything, I'm not even a regular drinker. It's the same with medications, they'll make other people sick and I just won't feel it. I started mixing because I love beer, but i want a buzz without needing to run to the bathroom all night. I usually stick with a beer that has a clean finish, like Stella, or hoegaarden, or modelo, and any scotch will do since you don't really taste it. I usually end up having some Johnny Walker around the house, though, because it's such a smooth blend.
