Excellent choices. Shiner tastes different at the brewery though. I don't buy it at the store. One unusual choice I had last week that was outstanding: Gordon Biersch Maybach.

I don't have the proximity to the Shiner brewery to enjoy it the way it should be. But in bottles it beats a lot of other stuff on the market. But the worst beer I ever had was also from Texas.......Lonestar. In my opinion, about as drinkable as what comes out of the black water tank. Let's not have anyone get upset. Again, my opinion!

I think every state has a black water beer, in Maryland it was National Bohemian, or "natty boh" if you were at the Orioles game.

Most Texans (and pretty much all San Antonians) would stand up and applaud you for denouncing the swill known as Lonestar. Put some in a dog bowl and watch what happens. The dog will look at you as if to say, 'are you kidding'?

Alright - beer talk! I can't cook, but I sure can brew beer!

Right now in the fermentors, I have a Caribou Slobber (clone of Moose Drool) and a Raspberry Imperial Stout (imperial stout with 5# of our raspberries from our patch added -the guy who developed the recipe subtitled it liquid sex in a bottle ).

In bottles, Irish Red, Taddy Porter clone, Nut Brown, Cascade Pale Ale, Winter Spiced Ale, a couple of Belgian Whites left and about 6 of last year's RIS now aged the perfect year in the bottle.

Tastings given to thirsty Escapees if they are in my neck of the woods.

You can't have a Black and Tan mixed in a bottle. Half of the fun is the fact that the stout sits on top of the ale, and needs to be carefully poured that way. We make them every once in a while, quite tasty. Wouldn't it get all mixed up in a bottle?

That would be my excellent choice; it was my lunch at the James Joyce Irish Pub last time we were in Calgary.

That makes sense, and I'll have to do that... but Black&Tan pre-mixed is a common product.
