Please turn in your beer drinking card at the door on your way out.

I love the heavy beers, the ones with lots of great taste, the ones where a swig sits on the palate for a while, so you don't feel the need to guzzle.

Same with Scotch, and while there is great stuff distilled all across the country, my favourites come from the Isle of Islay, where there is a distinct peatiness to the taste. They tend to finish great, leaving a wonderful taste lingering on the palate. One wee sip will satisfy the taste buds for quite some time.

Damn, now I want to quit working at this big pile of paperwork in front of me, and have a dram or two of Scotch.

I learned years ago to keep work of any kind, and partaking in the spirits, separate. I will definitely have on later. I do have a few different stouts in the fridge.

Sorry about that. We brew all sorts of fabulous micro-brews in Colorado. We also make Coors. As best I can tell, it's for ball games and tourists.

As I recall from a brewery tour in Golden in 1968, the term banquet was added to Coors' label during the Great Depression for some reason related to miners who were apparently "the" party animals of the time. And my 2 cents, Shiner Bock is OK if one cannot find Yuengling Porter or Linenkugel's Snowdrift Vanilla Porter (seasonal) or Creamy Dark or Cigar City Maduro!

I did try a Coors - once, back around 1972, I believe...

For flavor try:

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.
