The whole near-beer thing just really bothers me.  One of the many reasons I have never understood Oklahoma.
 
2013-05-15 04:51:13 PM  
So they were making beer instead of beer-flavored water.
 
2013-05-15 05:01:32 PM  
I'm guessing that they farked up the batch and tried to recomp their costs by selling it anyways.
 
2013-05-15 05:10:27 PM  
Damn....and some of you American's come to Canada on purpose because you can't get decent strong beer in the USA.  Did someone not give you guys the memo that prohibition is over?
 
2013-05-15 05:11:05 PM  
Right. Because only large companies should be able to evade taxes.

And they probably thought "We can get away with it because people in power are stupid and they won't even notice and who is going to complain about a stronger beer." But alas.

I have had other beers destroy my palate worse than it though...so the name was bit misleading.

"Beer is too strong" is like "Skirt is too short." I know what all the words mean individually, but they're nonsense together.

If you hate American hops you're more limited than you think. There are still plenty of other options, though: Guinness is a ubiquitous one.

Who the fark even knows about the Able commission?! I do, I'm in the home brewing community. I think someone set them up. On their Facebook page they are joking about how the agents loved their pizza. Me thinks they shouldn't be joking with people who can take away your liquor license.

There's only one reason I'd never live in Oklahoma. OK, more than just one. Perhaps 78,326.

No, that still seems low. Let's simplify things: There are all the reasons I'd never live in Oklahoma.

Seriously, if a reason can be given for anything, even if it's unrelated to living in Oklahoma, it's a reason I'd never live in Oklahoma. The heartbreak of psoriasis? That's a reason I'd never live in Oklahoma. Plants synthesize sunlight via photosynthesis? That's a reason I'd never live in Oklahoma. Kepler's laws of Planetary Motion, Boyle's Law of gas pressure, and "because of the Dewey Decimal System"? Three more reasons I'd never live in Oklahoma.

PBR would be too strong to legally sell in Oklahoma.  And there are no hipsters in Oklahoma.  And mocking hipster beer tastes is amusing, since it is them who have kind of popularized the craft brew movement to the point where you can get decent shiat in a suburban grocery store in Texas.

In all seriousness though, PA beer makes living next to Jersey tolerable. It's that good.

I work with a guy whos from Oregon and loves PBR. He doesnt dress like a hipster...black jeans, wallet on chain, band t shirts, full sleeve tattoos. I did hit him with the hipster accusation the other day though...as he was busy spewing some crap about how a band was great until they sold out and got on a major record label. "So they were good when no one knew who they were, but now that they are on the radio they are sell outs and suck...wow, hipster". He was not ammused as he fancies himself the "heavy metal guy".

We had one back in '05 at McNellies.  I was gonna get anther one together a couple of years ago, but my job ate my social life at the time.  This place is about 2 miles from me and I didn't even know it existed.

It comes as a surprise to many furriners that Prohibition was only repealed at the Federal level. All manner of alcohol-related asshattery still goes on at the State level.

Girlfriend flew back to OKC today for a week to visit her family so I'm getting a kick. Oklahoma also lacks decent food, coffee, or anything else.

Of all the reasons possible, this ranks pretty low on the list.  The lack of complete streets, mass transit and otherwise inaccessibility of the city to folks who can't make the investment in a car, or or otherwise unable to drive (kids, the elderly, injured war veterans, the blind, morbid diabetics, all of which we have a lot in this city) is a far bigger and endemic issue than having to plan around having a cooler and making it to the liquor store before 21:00.

we didn't realize that and a few years ago rented a cool house on a river in Arkansas. Showed up and were looking for a liquor store. Oops. Dry country. We had to drive about 30 miles to get it.

oklahoma beer is 3.2 percent as opposed to the exact same beer in texas which is at least 5.0 percent. when i was in a band from texas playing in oklahoma we'd drink beer all night and not get drunk, on the flip side it was always fun to watch the oklahoma bands come to texas and just get trashed stupid drunk on our beer...

At many bars that have live music the default cheapo band beer is PBR (or Lone Star in Texas). If he's a musician he probably just developed a taste.

Actually enjoyed the banana bread beer. I don't think I would start drinking it regularly, but it was fairly pleasant for a novelty beer.
