So they are going from Pabst Blue Robot to LöBräu?

Not sure I was trying to remember an older beer .....that has umlauts

Perfect. I remember the returnable (yes, returnable!) bottles back in the 1980s in Champaign-Urbana.

However, the returnables are no more, and it is (mostly) no longer distributed outside Wisconsin.

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: serial_crusher: pretty much any IPA, right?

No, it has to be a "craft" beer, preferably from a local/regional brewery where your brother's girlfriend's neighbor works, and it has to have "Dog", "Head", or "Fish" in the name.


Well, I think names with puns on the word "hop" also count.

The very best there is. When you absolutely, positively, got to spill every other lager in the room; accept no substitutes.

Funny thing about Red Stripe is that the bottle origin is from Canada.  "Stubbies" as they were known was the mainstay in Canada until the brewers all decided to go with the American longneck, and so they sold off all their existing stock of bottles to Jamaica.

I miss the stubbies.  They're compact, don't lose their chill as fast, and sit stably.

odinsposse: Bung_Howdy: I'm sick of the word "hipster'. It was referenced a bazillion times in the article, but good luck defining or even getting consensus on who or what is a "hipster". Stupid...


/off my lawn etc.

It's actually pretty easy to define hipster generally, It's just hard in the specifics. Hipster is a derivation of scenester, which can be quickly defined as someone who joins a subculture because they think it is cool rather than actually embracing the things that sub culture is about. A hipster expands this beyond just joining a subculture. So the general definition of a hipster is: Someone who does things because they think it is hip rather than actually caring or knowing about that thing.

The specifics of it are hard because what may be considered hip is fluid. That results in hipsters having an amalgamation of hip things that don't make much sense together like someone with a PBR tattoo, handlebar mustache, and prominently displayed iPhone who is reading a Chuck Palahniuk book in a Starbucks.


Ugh. You just described a goodly amount of Seattle.  :-P

And when I have the misfortune of sitting next to one on the 358 in the am, they're usually wearing some sort of Axe body spray. I wish I could just hose 'em down.

FarginIceHole: What about Wisconsin Club?  In college that was cheaper than Mountain Dew.


Where did you go to school?  I haven't heard anyone outside of Valparaiso grads that knew what that stuff was.  We used to buy it by the case and sell it for $.25 a bottle in our pop machine and made a profit.

Pocket Ninja: There's nothing ironic about drinking PBR anymore, anyway. The next great hipster drink must return to the roots of irony that define hipsterism. O'Doul's non-alcoholic beer with a whisky chaser (from the rail, of course) would be my suggestion.

MNguy: Beer snobs who drink IPAs that are like 8% and take notes on the 'flowery' aftertaste are worse than hitler hipsters.


I don't get this hipster nonsense (probably because I'm over 60 for a start). Why on earth would they glorify drinking something that is marginally better worse than piss? Are they all into Bear Grills or something?

orange whip: I think the next hipster beer of choice should be chosen like the pope:
The council of hipsters will convene in an ironic dive bar and not come out until the new hipster beer is chosen. They will signal that they've come to a decision by igniting their neck beards and playing a track by a band you've never heard of. Then, and only then, will we have a new hipster beer

A Boilerfaker?


I've actually done more or less this just for the hell of it.  A can of nearbeer, take a swig out of it, top it up with whisky, swirl, and down the hatch.  Given that whisky is mostly distilled beer it does work out, but there is something odd about the whole affair.  It's like a peaty malt liquor.

the trick is to let it warm up a bit so that the flavors can better express themselves... at around 50 degrees, you can really TASTE the corn!

No, it's just not bad for $1.50/pint at the bar.  It's just your typical mass produced American Lager style slightly alcoholy water.  I only drink it if my other options are $5 beers and I don't feel like spending that kind of money.

India Beer was my grandfather's favorite beer.

Dominion Ale was the preferred beer of an old Political Science prof of mine, who somehow always stayed one step ahead of a sexual harassment.

I still have Black Horse whenever I'm home.
