CSB: recently moved to a nice new neighborhood, went to answer the door for our first trick or treaters with a beer in my hand and mrs Hobbs was mortified. "Please put that down first". So I did. Answered the door, a cute little princess said "trick or treat" and her mom was a few steps behind her with a large glass of wine in hand. Happy Halloween, enjoy happy hour.

Wine is a classless drink for pretentious people who think they're better than you. There are over 680 styles of beer, and even within the same style different beers are vastly different. Take pale ales for example, with Sierra Nevada versus Bass (carbonate content in the ground water gives this its flavor) versus Dogfish Head Shelter Pale Ale--and the related India Pale Ale, where Dogfish Head 60 minute is vastly different from Sierra Nevada Torpedo or Stone IPA. Brown ales, stouts, and porters with bitter, heavy, heady, nutty, dark, malty, roasted coffee flavors in various combinations that stand out starkly from beer to beer.

Red wine. Port is sweet, I love tawny port--not a fan of ruby. Dow's Boardroom is better than regular Dow's, but honestly they taste almost exactly the same. The same as Taylor Fladgate 30 too. Zinfadels are the same way, Cabernets, the like. You pick a Merlot, any Merlot, as long as it's not Ravenclaw super-heavy-okaed Merlot, and it'll have the same notes of cherry and plum and whatever, one's a tad sweeter.

But wine drinkers are like... oh, BEER. That one-dimensional drink of drunkards. They prefer 16% ABV to 4% ABV (though I've had a 12% beer).

Our town fire marshall goes through 8 handles of Cuervo handing out margaritas to parents who brave the cold to take the kids out. I'm a volunteer parent for any kids who need an escort. I usually end up with a car load of kids who live way outside of town on dirt roads. It makes their night and I have my drink at the begining of the 3 hour walk.
Lady sounds like my ex. She got popped with a .358 driving around a reservoir with 5 kids in her car. Three of them hers.

You're probably right. What I saw that was worse than this? A little kid riding her bike around town, and her mom in her HUGE SUV following her. Yes blocking the road for everyone else.

Probably thinks she's a great mom for taking her little girl biking, too.

Somebody has to represent the beer crowd. Most of us are sitting around either brewing or drinking it going "Yep." "...Yep." "yep!" "Mmmmm-hmm."

I'm all for recognizing the many delicious beers, but that doesn't take anything away from good wine.

My point is that wine is recognized as a class drink--hell, people drink wine to be classy. There was a movie (Sideways) where a Pinot Noir drinker claimed Merlot was tasteless and one-dimensional and Merlot drinkers were idiots, and suddenly everyone became a wine connoisseur and was talking about how terrible Merlot is and drinking Pinot. Why? Because Pinot is classy and Merlot is for silly rabble that don't understand good wine. (Of course Jacques Pepin loves him a good Merlot, but what's he know about food and especially wine, eh?)

Look at romantic movies, look at anything that tries to show rich upper-class settings. Wine, wine, wine. Now here we have a woman drinking wine, turning her nose up at an unshowered alcoholic drinking beer. Are you surprised?

I like tawny port. I like a lot of different beers, mostly pale ales. What I don't like is how beer is seen as a drink for peasants and wine as a drink for aristocracy; in truth they were both peasant's drinks but beer was the better peasant's drink because it's a lot easier for peasants to make GOOD beer (which requires good technique) rather than GOOD wine (which requires access to good land--which is expensive). The aristocracy had beer in some countries and wine in others, and in both cases they had GOOD beer and wine because they had in their employ excellent beer brewers and they had in their control excellent land for wine and excellent farmers tending their vineyards.

So, yes, the high-and-mighty self-absorbed booze mom was shocked--SHOCKED that an alcoholic would show up with beer at her door while she was setting a good example for her daughter getting into her third bottle of classy red wine for the night.

Sure, your form of sensory stimulation is better than their form of sensory stimulation. Just leave me to my theoretical philosophy and leave your sensory stimulation out of it.
