Thread: Beer

    Default Beer

    Haven't had one of these threads in a while. With NCAA's coming soon, I'm sure we can figure something to talk about.

    That or just read Grips and Homer writing about "pwnage"

    Beer gives me heartburn.

    I've evolved into a Captain Morgan and Coke kind of guy.

    I used to be one of the great beer drinkers of the world. I sampled more than 1000 beers, and had a long list of favorites including grimbergen double, weinstephaner wheat beer, Paulaner salvator and heffeweissen, Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, Corsendonk brown ale, whitbread ale, and several other handcrafted beers. Not any more. I'll never drink another beer again. I've had stomach problems for more than 3 years, and I was finally diagnosed having celiac disease, which means my stomach can't tolerate gluten (coming from wheat, barley, rye, and oats). Probably about 1 out of every few hundred people of european decent have celiac but most have not been diagnosed. My diet has completely changed but I am able to live with it without too much trouble. Now that I no longer drink beer, I may consider trying to replace my favorite with wine. Or maybe, I'll just give up drinking altogether!

    Absolutely tragic having to convert to being a wino.

    I had a long discussion with the guy who does my hair (before you ask, he's straight) about how much we like Miller High Life. I started drinking it in college when my roommate and I used to drink it for free, and now I'm hooked. My #1 favorite beer is Goose Island 312, but I do like living the High Life.

    I have been enjoying Boddingtons Pub Ale lately.

    A beer I will stay away from is Tommyknocker Cocoa Porter.

    In my book, it's hard to find a bad English or Irish beer.

    My latest favorite is Samuel Smith--any one of them.

    Unless someone were to give me one, I would totally avoid a beer called Cocoa, based on the name alone.

    You forgot to add: "--not that there's anything wrong with that"
