  • Yup ya do
Had a few Cape Cod Reds on tap tonight.  They've been consistently tasty.

And having tried a second varietal from Michelob's new line on ales I have to say, for $3 less they're decent enough Bud-mass-produced option for a Sam Adams-like type of beverage.

I knew I was qualifying myself with that one. ;) However, I also am quite fond of Guinness, Stone Coast Summer Splash Ale, Yats La Fin Du Monde, (aged filipina beer), Rolling Rock, Molson, and Left Hand Milk Stout.

Well that is pretty diverse. Besides Rolling Rock they all sound exotic or at least unique. Rolling Rock to me is just anther American Lager that is not very tasty.

When I was in college I used to make a mean Black and Tan out of Rolling Rock and Guinness.  It was great, it had the body of Guinness and the finish of Rolling Rock.  And by "great" I mean "you could drink a lot of it quickly without wincing" which is of course key for college drinking.  I called it a Miscegenation.
I find this borderline sacrilegious.  I cannot wait to try it. You sir, are an excellent human being.

I will not mix grape varieties in wine if at all possible and this strikes me as madness, but there seem to be method in it.

Baltika Extra Lager grade 9

It's about 8%.  Didn't get me drunk or buzzed even, but helped put me to sleep fairly early in the evening.

I didn't like it that much.

I'm getting nervous because for the second time in my life I've tried like 4 or 5 beers in a row and didn't like any of them.

I am afraid I may be becoming a beer snob, in which case I don't deserve to live.  You can't take God's 2nd greatest gift to men and become picky. You can't.

The emergency plan: get back to basics. Break out Bud, Killians, Guinness, Utenos, Becks, and Coors Light. Say "Do over!" out loud.  Restart.  Begin trying more new beers but nothing with fruit for at least two weeks.

tried the new UFO white, ok beer, not a ton of taste, but the second bottle had a nice chip in it, leading to glass in the beer - thankfully we noticed before drinking. Wrote Harpoon a letter, they offered a case of beer as an apology, not a bad little company...

ps, working on brewing our own soon for the second time (1st time did not go well with a generic kit) will let you know...

Blue Moon and it was good. yeah, nothing ground breaking, but you take what you can get when your not 21 :P.

Also saw Sheed getting some drinks at PF Chang's  ;D. He was pretty quiet and low key. If he has a crap game tomorrow I blame It on the Liquor.

Edit: Turned 21 a few weeks back.

Harpoon IPA still most drinkable IPA widely available on east coast. Tried smuttynose, dogfish and others. Harpoon still the best.

hs, I thought that after I wrote it. I thought "well if some witty wordsmith comes along I will look quite the fool"

No, I had 3 or 4 beers last night, and I got a bad feeling from the IPA. It was in a sampler pack though.

I know the exact sampler pack  you are talking about. An invention worthy of a Nobel Prize.
