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 *charge

I still have Black Horse whenever I'm home.

dennysgod: Honest question, is PBR any good?


I'm generally an IPA (Hop Devil, Dog Fish Head 60, etc.) drinker, but I prefer a PBR after skiing or running.  Smooth drinking beer for, e.g., hanging out at the beach.

Oldiron_79: Walter Paisley: J. Frank Parnell: Beer is the most mainstream of liquors. I predict a move towards some obscure wine none of us have heard of. Or maybe saki.

DIY moonshine. That ensures no one else will be drinking the exact same awful shiat as them.

The BATFE would like a word with you on that.

When going to school in St.John's in the mid-90s, selection was limited. Blue Star had a variant around then called Glacier Cold. Liquid crap.

I was introduced to Smithwicks, Strongbow or Guinness draft by the hipsters of the time.

They started bringing in Moosehead around then too, and I was considered a beer snob for drinking that.

Well I generally prefer darker beers like Shiner Bock, Yuengling Black and Tan, Cawtaba Brown Bear, Highland Oatmeal Porter.

As far as light coloured piss water American style Pilsners go(if Im somewhere where my prefered poisons are unavailable) PBR is my least objectionable cheapass and Coor's is my least objectionable big 3.

Busch lite is probably the worst Ive had other than now defunct Wiedeman's, Bud lite is probably my least fave big 3.

Oldiron_79: CluelessMoron: MaudlinMutantMollusk: 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.

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.

Why would you do that to whisky?



Don't worry, no good scotch was harmed in that experiment.

Hamm's is my choice because bears.


I am a craft brewer by trade.. as has been stated in many a fark beer thread.. but I have a passion for the small, regional retro brands because... well.. in a big way.. that is the beer that I make is.. the brewery I work for is making around 15k bbls a year and is serving...well,  a region.

and Hamms was, and is, a regional beer.. and it has much love because of that damn bear, and I have watched and studied all the ads, and the promo stuff revolving around Hamms and the Hamms beer bear..

it really is shiat you can't get away with nowadays because OMGCHILDERN!!!!!!

But I love the Hamms beer bear, and If I were to somehow come up with a big marketing and advertising budget, I would love to try to do something simular in scope....

hell.. we got them there internets now... A web only series of video adverts would be cheap and easy to pull off......
...


..

...


... hmmmm...

* pulls out a micro-tape cassette recorder and clicks it to life* 

run an online contest for aspiring videographers and film auteurs, to make their own vision of a TeeVee commercial for the beer. have all participants submit to a common area, and have the public vote on the best.. the winner gets a free case of beer a month for a year or something and the winning video is featured at the top of the list for all submited entries, and actually shown on TeeVee, basic cable bulk package...

The One True TheDavid: Yes. And "discovering" and "gentrifying" old urban neighborhoods so badly that the people who grew up there and whose parents grew up there can't afford to live there or even eat out there anymore. My old neighborhood, Hampden in Baltimore, is a case in point: one ratty old dive bars that had four pool tables and Red White & Blue on tap are now "locavore bistro." An apartment in a rowhouse that was $325 in 1991 now goes for three times that. And buying a house in Hampden? That's something you do when your parents give you the downpayment as a reward for getting non-gaily married.


Reminds me of my native Boise-Eliot in Portland.

I'd drink it once for the novelty.  On my "beer can't be that bad if it's got a bear on it," I really got into Big Sky Summer Honey and Alameda Black Bear XX Stout.  Not sure I would have anywhere near the same expectation out of something like a 40.

The first time I remember having a PBR was in 2007, I was 35 at the time.  It was at Lenny's bar in South Atlanta.  It was a 24oz can.  Really good! I bought a second.  Then it never tasted as good after that day. I wonder if it was the freshness?

O'Doul's is really foul, as (I'm not lying) done a quasi-scientific experiment about 20 years ago. Blind testing amongst about 30 people concluded that:

1. O'Doul's is awful
2. Nobody can tell the difference between light beers except for 2 people out of 30
3. Such experiments are fun

Oh man, the bottle lies by that standard then. It's got a bear on it, sure... but I think I only found it drinkable because I was a broke college student with a serious case of self-loathing at the time. I tried it later on in life, and my liver started crying and pointing on the doll where the bad malt liquor touched it.

My dad and my grandfather worked at the Schaefer brewery in Albany, from what my dad told me it was company policy to give the workers a case of beer to take home after every shift, which is either brilliant, dastardly or both.

BigJake:

That was the first beer I got drunk on. An older friend bought me a case for me 14th birthday, to which I invited Helen B. who used to chase me around Industrial Arts class with scissors threatening to cut off my shoulder-length ponytail. That was how I become officially a non-virgin, with females anyway.

We did it till we were unconcho, literally. But I let her go not too long after because she wasn't very good at talking about books and ideas. O what a dumb boy was I.

So that beer makes me sad. I do better with Rolling Rock, which only makes me puke.

oh.. that is damn disturbing...
but... as long as they have a good deal of discretionary income that they can spend on beer,and they are willing to spend that discretionary income on the beer that I help make, and they tell thier freinds and fiends that we are friendly to them, and they repay that kindness with buying the fark out of the beer? well hell.. that is how the beer biz works when you get down to it.

our logo is the unicorn from the scottish coat of arms,,  it is known as the sinister unicorn because of the coat of arms..

the scottish unicorn has a crown collar around its neck and that collar is trailing a gold chain.. that is supposed to symbolize the unicorn, what was once captured, has broken its bonds and has returned to its animal spirit..


but god help me if I haven't imagined the logo rendered as MLP and put on a woman's baby doll T-shirt because. why the fark not?
