time for another drinking thread
got some good old EW right now
will probably get some better liquor when I get a second job (which might actually happen soon)
haven't had that in years
used to get it when I was sick as a kid
I remember my brother puking up blue Lucozade (though maybe it was Gatorade) in the hallways of Toronto Airport
I enjoy the drinking threads, keep posting them guy.
This picture was from the weekend. Went down to Karl Strauss in Temecula for a work thing. The experimental and Wreck Alley were really good. The sour was not very good and the peanut butter cup porter was decent, my girlfriend liked that one the most.
Nothing tonight since work in 6 hours.
Brought a bottle of scotch to work today.
Gonna be a good day
Yeah when I was 15. I'm better looking than you and get more tail than you. Drink something real men drink like bourbon.
meant to quote >>23224886
you look like you're still 15 m8
though I have to agree, Four Lokos are vile
malt liquor is my drink of choice when I only have a couple bucks to spend
I'll take it as a compliment, been smoking drinking and pill popping since I was 14 so all good in my book.
I get hangovers easily, so I guess I'm not the best judge of this
I find that mid shelf rum (Mount Gay, Flor de Cana, etc) gives me less of a hangover than anything else. can drink 3/4ths of the bottle and still feel fine the next day
Now Drinking: Haymarket's Indignant aged in Belle Meade barrels for 22 months.
Holy shit! I am just dumbfounded by how amazing this stuff is. I wish I got more growlers yesterday while I was in Chicago. Absolutely loving this stuff!
He out-edged* /r9k/, what did you expect?
*(I would say "outgrew" but we all know that's not true)
now drinking Lagunitas Cappuccino Stout. it's delicious, like most of their beers
that was Fish, a notorious r9k edgelord. I am actually a fan of Eggman
I find their IPAs much more palatable than most though. they use more fruity hops than bitter ones
currently drinking some wine though, Epicuro Primitivo. it's the Italian Zinfandel, and right now it's beating the California stuff IMO
hey, Zinfandels are almost always great wines. good cherry/berry flavor, with hints of smoke and/or spice. this Primitivo seems to be more cherry/spice heavy, whereas most CA Zinfandels tend to be more on the berry/jam side
>Whiskey and blueberry lemonade
That sounds like an abomination.
I think it's dose-ek-ees
The certain hops a brewery uses does have an effect on the bitterness. However, the main amount of bitterness comes from when they add the hops during the boil.
Nope. In a general sense, there are three levels of IPAs. Ranging from least bitter to most, there's Pale Ale, India Pale Ale (IPA), and Imperial IPA. However, there are Imperial IPAs that are high in IBUs (International Bitterness Unit, which measures the bitterness of a beer) that are very balanced and not extremely bitter. American IPAs tend to be more focused on the hops, whereas English IPAs are more focused on the malt. So, if you ever see a beer labelled as an English IPA, it shouldn't be too bitter at all.
Now Drinking: Off Color's Dino S'mores
Forgot to add that "abbey" has to do with Belgian beers (namely those brewed at monasteries). Those brewed at such monasteries are in levels, mostly due to the alcohol content. There's Abbey Single, Dubbel, Tripel, and Quadrupel.
Now Drinking: Wild Onion's Drago (Russian Imperial Stout aged in bourbon barrels)
Now Drinking: Three Floyds' Zombie Dust (actually pretty fresh)
Now Drinking: Pipeworks' Ninja vs. Unicorn
Sucks that everyone had pretty much left the thread as soon as I get in here. Oh well. Suppose I should just stop coming here anymore.
I've had my fill of Z.D. as I live in Indianapolis and also working at a liquor store. I must say, there are other beers that are similar, better, cheaper, and more available.
Just a couple of years ago, I remember FFF 6pks were like $11.99. But then, they upped the price and I just don't know anymore. If they were smart, they would distribute ZD, Gumballhead, etc. in bombers for $5. Such a better way to earn a good profit.
And yeah, I feel ya with tasting for the fermentation vessel (on a much smaller scale, lol). APW is decent too!
Oh look one of these threads is actually up when it's relevant to me.
I need help; I only started drinking recently and so far all I know is I like most of the beer I've tried, I dislike most of the wine I've tried, and this stuff is alright.
I don't have friends to drink with, so how do I figure out what I'm doing?
try a good Zinfandel, they'll turn even someone who isn't fond of wine into a total wine ponce
as for figuring it out, there are really no rules to it IMO. just try lots of things till you know for sure what does and doesn't work for you
I really love this word
has anyone here used a Shibboleth? they seem like a lot of fun, sort of like ancient memes
but it has been a while since I had gin, I'm more of a rum, bourbon and wine guy
Drinking this right now. Not too shabby. Kinda different floral citrus flavor than I'm used to. Reminds me a bit of Two Hearted though not as great.
What beers have you had that you liked?
Yeah, Centennial is decent. But, there are a few out there I'd take over it any day of the week. Hopefully Mosaic Promise reaches you this year, as that stuff is pretty tasty.
Now Drinking: Mikerphone's Travelin' Man (Saison dry hopped w/ Australian hops; apparently uses yeast from Hill Farmstead)
It's not that it was bad, I just have had their other beers and was a bit let down how average this one was.
Might pop another beer open.
Azacca has made its way down here but I haven't seen any Mosaic Promise. I managed to snag a few 4 packs of Breakfast Stout for hoarding since I really liked it. I've heard good stuff about Mosaic Promise, so if I see any I'll be sure to get some!
Azacca is decent for sure. I believe Mosaic Promise should be coming out within the next 2-3 months.
Love me some Breakfast Stout. If you see Imperial Stout, get some and age it for a year or so.
Love me some rum...
> top slurp is ole Cap. Morgan
> mid-ranges vary, stuff like Sailor Jerry and CM Black
> bottom of the ladder sees Kraken, and can always count on the myriad of cheap shit like stuff distributed by Seagrams
I've enjoyed Yuengling, Killian's irish red, and Fat Tire.
I wasn't thrilled with Shocktop.
I'd probably try more if I had people I could go to bars with, of if I had more friends that drink.
As it is, I try and get something new whenever the opportunity arises.
