Next time you’re in Silicon Valley I’ll buy you one.
That makes perfect sense. We used to use beer bottles to make college folk art.
Our best use was after a huge party (400+ people). We collected all of the bottles and smashed them up into large chunks. We had an old table we were gonna throw out. I covered it in an epoxy resin and poured the glass chunks all over it. Once the resin dried, I covered the exposed shards and let it dry for about a week.
That table went everywhere with me until a young friend of the family asked if he could take it with him to college. It’s still in someone’s living room in Tallahassee, FL, likely a testament to hungover college shenanigans and ingenuity.
And FWIW, I cannot do IPAs. I’ve yet to find an IPA that doesn’t give me a headache. I don’t know what it is, but I cannot tolerate them like I can most other beers.
“Labatt’s Blue Light, baby!.”
I hate to be a beer snob, but in Canada, Blue Light has the status of say Bud Light stateside, or maybe Old Milwaukee.
In the small liquor store in the village near my rural home, there are at least a dozen brands better than that, and only a handful poorer.
Canada should be renamed Land of Beer ...and Ale!
Our IPAs are great!
How can it be a real poll without St. Pauli Girl? I’m rarely able to find it so I drink Heinekin. If I can’t get St. Pauli or Heinekin I don’t drink beer.
That's what I'm talkin' about. Or even Yuengling light?
Where’s the Fat Tire ?
I don’t see Smithwick’s on there anywhere. And I totally disagree with the placement of Guinness.
And where the heck is Shiner Bock on this chart??!!!
Oh .... not widely available. My bad.
If I'm not mistaken, doesn't our current pResident drink Guinness on occasion?
And where, may I ask, is Yuengling.
Most of those that have heard on Yuengling are from PA and are clinging to their guns and Bibles!!
I had my last beer, a Schooner, in April 96. And boy am I thirsty.
What if like me, you brew your own beer? though i do like a good SA...
I don’t generally do IPAs either - most I just don’t like the taste.
The Avery stuff is very hoppy - almost citrusy. If I had noticed it was an IPA when I ordered it, I probably wouldn’t have tried it.
That table sounds really cool. Could be an interesting business and a way to dispose of old beer bottles at the same time.
That's not a beer glass. That's a thimble.
I like Stella and Amstel Lite...
No, but being a Catholic I know Ryan does.
I’d love to toss back a few with Paul Ryan at the barbecue pit.
Why are Molson and Labatt in opposite quadrants? I drink both - but prefer Labatts!
Other than the fact that it comes from the People’s Republik of San Franfreakistan, nothing.
I remember an old Stroh’s commercial from when I was a kid. An arrogant WWI German ace has just been shot down by the Americans and they bring him in for interrogation. An American officer chivalrously asks him if he’d like a beer and offers him a Stroh’s.
The German pilot contemptuously snorts “American beer???”, and laughs.
The socialist, political/regulator class is comprised of drunks. So that’s why political speech is increasingly hysterical and childish. Thanks.
About half-way between Houston and San Antonio. Shiner, Texas, population 2006. Been there many times.
My one and only favorite Mexican import.
According to that I’m either a high turnout Democrat, Miller, or a low turnout Democrat, Corona. Some of the supposed Republican beers like Amstel light are an abomination. The real Amstel beer along with the original recipe Schlitz are my all time favorites with Genesse close behind.
From my army experience, Private Stock “Heffenreffer” is a 100% guaranteed Democrat vote.
No way! I don’t see my occasional meal - pint of Guinness Stout on there. Becks is my beer of choice, plus no Yeungling. Others all over too. Meh. Real conservatives are confident enough to drink what they want, regardless of what people think!
Back in the day, I drank Red White and Blue, too. Many moons ago, when I still imbibed.
From the responses, you sure like your beers and are very particular about your brand. Down my way,I think by the most part, miller and bud are the most popular all around. I don’t know if it is because of the muggy heat or what. Of course, with meals or out and about I am sure people try loftier stock.
What’s a Bevmo?
And where is 1554?
What a joke.
What about those of us who brew our own?
Did you ever try to drink a Corona without something to cover it's bad taste?
Can’t be right. My buds and I all drink Miller Heavy [High Life for you dummies] and we are all to the right Ronald Reagan.
Did you ever try to drink a Corona without something to cover it’s bad taste?
Nope. But, I remember it being real chic in the ‘80’s. It was the beer du jour down my way. All the gals swigged their corona and lime at the clubs.
Thanks for the laugh!
A fine beer with great seasonal selections. The brewery tour is highly recommended.....free samples!!
Sierra Nevada is missing from the list as well....
Of course, that's the whole point behind his photo op "beer summit" when he said the cops "acted stupidly" after his professor friend called them racist for questioning him as he was breaking into his own home.
I cannot understand how anyone can like the taste of any beer. About ever 15 years I try a beer and it taste like I would imagine horse pee tastes like.....really. Now a nice bourbon is worth your time...Basil Hayden is pretty good and smooth going down..just don’t understand beer drinkers...
There’s an unopened six pack of Gilley’s beer at a local record store...
Finally some sanity. I also like the regular Modelo Especial.
Go ahead, throw your money away.
I don’t see Leinenkuegel’s on this list.
They and I are chiming in soon.
I think Guinness is in the wrong category. And PBR is missing from the list! I homebrew a great Irish stout and it is not on the list!
I am over here! Just juped over from the Homebrewing thread. I do enjoy my homebrewed Irish Stouts and Porters than any on the chart!
